Dude, *burp* I think I f*cked up my buddy here.

"A young alcoholic snowboarder tries to make a comeback after a tragic accident leaves his best friend disabled.

Genre: Drama/Action

The main character, turns his back on the sport he loves after he causes a tragic accident involving his best friend. He battles his way back to respectability as he competes for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team, but first he has to confront an old rival and come face to face with the guilt of the accident."

Well, shit, you're not supposed to "turn your back" while snowboarding.

I think I've got a title for this project--Chariots of Ice.

This one is pretty standard. Make the movie and evey snowboarder in the world will go see it, no matter how cliche and contrived the story is. I think there are enough of them out there to make a low to medium budget movie profitible. Put some good snowboarding scenes in there, perhaps a little sex, and you're home.

The Other Other Side of the Mountain.

Grones (ripoff of Gromes: Extreme Skiing and Snowboarding documentary).

Dude, Who Stole My Life?

Scene V V X I (yeah, I know it's not a correct Roman numeral already):

BUDDY: Dude, you F'ed up my life, man!

MAIN Character: I'm sorry man, I feel so guilty. I'll tell you what. If I come in second or third, I'll give you the medal. Now get out of my face, man.

Isn't this a little too similar to "Cliffhanger?" Or "The Mighty Ducks?" Or "Airplane?" Or any movie involving a shameful fall from grace and a triumphant comeback?

And seriously, we need to start sponsoring public service announcements for correct comma use. Why is there a comma in the first sentence? How could anyone who spoke English as a first language write that and think it looked correct?

 
At 10:28 AM, Blogger snow-cap said...

(By "first sentence" I mean the one that starts "The main character,...")

 
At 10:37 AM, Blogger BWeaves said...

That's because the FIRST first sentence SHOULD have had a comma in it.

"A young, alcholic snowboarder . . ."

The whole last two hours of the movie should take place in a courtroom, where his EXTREME snowboarding then gets overshawdowed by the EXTREME civil lawsuit brought against him by his EXTREMEly crippled former friend.

I demand more reality in movies! That, and more penetration.

FLICK,

BOOM!

I think z0l0ft is trying to invoke the Xtreme spirit of BCPhil.

Just goes to show you that drinking and snowboarding don't mix. Who would have thought?

CLICHE ALERT!!! CLICHE ALERT!!! CLICHE ALERT!!

"The main character, turns his back on the sport he loves after he causes a tragic accident involving his best friend. "

The only thing, tragic here, is the improper use of the comma. ;-)

Oh, and dude, umm, like you're sooo not "best" friends anymore....

"...come face to face with the guilt of the accident."

The guilt...of the accident? So the accident...has guilt?

I have, been reading these queries, for so long I forget, where commas are supposed to go.

 
At 1:37 PM, Blogger Bargaintuan said...

Answer, not there.

I like how he turns his back on snowboarding, yet starts training for the Olympics.

I like this movie better the first several times I saw it - replace snowboarders with Navy pilots, NASCAR drivers, sports agents, Irish immigrants, or high school football, and it's The Tom Cruise Movie.

Can Tom Cruise snowboard?

Can Tom Cruise snowboard?

Tom can and will do anything his Scientology overlords tell him to do, thankyouverymuch. Hell, he can pretend to be stra....Hey! What are you doing in my house!? Get that thing away from me!!! Noooooo......

 
At 10:54 PM, Blogger Taffy Doublewide said...

Shelley, I hope you didn't just take drugs to cure whatever Tom just did to you. He's against that. I'm not a scientologist, or even a gynocologist, so I can't elaborate on the cure for that. Although... at my two-week mechanic school, where they do teach a little gyno-scientology, I heard that the cure for genital herpes has something to do with jumping up and down on Oprah's yellow couch.

The Main Character,: I caused a tragic accident involving my best friend.
Random Person: We have now lost respect for you. Go turn your back!
TMC: But no! I will compete for a spot on the Olympic Team!
RP: Oh, well, that's all right then. Carry on with your obviously hazardous athletic activities. Just make sure you turn around so you can come face to face with guilt and an old rival.

This reminds me of that episode of South Park where Cartman decides he wants to pretend to be disabled so he can get in the Special Olympics and Jimmy starts taking steroids. Timmy registers his disapproval with a stern, "Timmmaaaaaay."

this pitch, needs more commas. its comma usage, is novel and entertaining. its plot, is not.

Great, so you just couldn't die?

Now, you just sit off to the side of the finish line in your super-duper wheelchair with cute bumper stickers (Lap Dances 50 cents, Wanna See My Half-Pipe?) to torment me by being supportive and not blaming me when I nearly sliced your head clean off in my Mountain High Martini haze.

Bastard. Why didn't you just die!?

How about, for a really cruel twist of fate, it's Sonny Bono's nephew who's our tragic protagonist?

I told you to cut the fucking tree down, but no...
