Random Movie Reviews

Monday, 15 July 2013   |   Creativity Games

Clapper boardThis week we're reviewing.

Game:  There are 3 random words below. Use one, two or three of them as inspiration for a review of a popular movie.  The review must be indirect however.  That is,  it summarises the movie, but in a non obvious, obscure way. (see below for an example)

  • Summer
  • caper
  • poker

Challenge:  For extra challenge see if you can guess the movie someone else has reviewed.

Strategy: This is a fun little game which asks you to see a story from a different perspective.  This can be hard to do as the movie director was probably quite skilled and framed the scenes in order to have the movie interpreted the way they wanted.  To describe it differently, yet still coherently, takes a bit of thought.  See this example below for The Wizard of Oz.

"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again."
