I always thought I'd write thousands and thousands of words during downtime at work, but that doesn't ever happen. Pretty much the only slacking activity I can perform is reading. Scripts are easiest, because when I print and staple them, they look like they belong here. I have two sitting around the office that I haven't gotten around to reading yet: one I'm affectionately calling Bradley Cooper Gets Eaten By Wolves (although I bet he doesn't), and a zombie film that Shane Black wrote for John Carpenter in the seventies.

Um, [livejournal.com profile] zombres? I just realized that second one is probably your dream movie. I have actually been reluctant to read it, because WHAT IF IT'S NOT AWESOME??? D: D: D: But I may pick it up today just for your sake.

I also have a certain somebody's Big Bang to read! I am SO EXCITED to find out how the rest of the story goes, but kind of dreading the last page at the same time. I'm also printing that, because there is nothing more fun than writing in margins!

From my Better Than It Sounds meme earlier this week, here are the summaries nobody guessed:

13. Two people meet on a train. They do not plan a murder. They are both exactly who they claim. There are no series of humorous misunderstandings. They just talk for a bit and then have sex.
- Before Sunrise (<3)

15. A former actress is threatened by metafiction.
- Wes Craven's New Nightmare (I expect scorn here from people who dislike the Nightmare sequels and never made it as far as this one. I assure you it's AWESOME.)

16. Boy meets girl. Girl wants him to write script for her. Boy writes script with other girl instead. Boy dies.
- Sunset Boulevard (Would someone have guessed it if I'd added "So does the monkey." after the quotation?)

18. Homeless man wearing Cool Shades fights alien economists, who, presumably, are responsible for world bubblegum shortage.
- They Live (AKA THE BEST JOHN CARPENTER MOVIE EVER MADE ABOUT WRESTLERS WITH MAGICAL SUNGLASSES BATTLING BRAINWASHING ALIENS. If you haven't seen this movie, then you are TOO SANE.)

I filled in all the answers at the original post, if you're curious.

From those answers, a can't-miss rec: The Host (Gwoemul) is a Korean movie about an extremely dysfunctional family trying to rescue their youngest member from a mutant river monster. It is flawlessly brilliant and genre-defying. And it contains my favourite monster rampage sequence of all time (ALL TIME!). I highly recommend it.

TV Tropes meme, stolen from [personal profile] harbek. I saw a completely serious post the other day that started with a warning that it included a link to TV Tropes. Because, you know, it's the biggest time-suck known to man. Also, forget about ever going there if you have anything less than 100% willpower regarding spoilers. I risk my precious innocence about the last season of BSG every time I click. *whimper*

Anyway, meme: pick 25 movies/comic books/video games/literary works/tv shows and put their summaries from Better than it Sounds and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

Random list is random! )
