Fake Movie Friday: Werner Herzog and the Time He Saved the Universe

It’s almost 10, I’m just leaving work, sitting on the train, writing FMF #52. I got a few title suggestions today, but the one I have to go with is (one of) Colm’s (sorry Lisa), who also helped me flush out some of the story. I give you:

Werner Herzog and the Time He Saved the Universe

We open on the BBC interview Werner Herzog gave in 2006, during which he was shot, but continued the interview as if nothing happened. He jokes about it in the interview, and regards the whole thing as insignificant. He lifts up his shirt to show the bullet hole and the camera goes straight into the hole, eventually stopping at the bullet, which is actually a shrunken alien drone ship. The ship starts to open up and takes hold of Herzog’s nervous system. At this point Herzog is home and a blank, drooling stare washes across his face. The drone takes control of Herzog’s mind and starts to talk to him, sounding strangely like the female voice that speaks the directions in most GPS’.

Fake Movie Friday Retrospective: Dunn and Company

The most disappointing thing about this year of Fake Movie Fridays was the lack of submissions. We got some really great ones but I always heard from people that they wanted to do one but just haven’t written it out. These brave few made the leap. If I forgot anyone, I am so sorry. ALSO keep this going and send your Fake Movie Fridays to us!

Fake Movie Friday: Cauliflower Revisited

So I was wrong, this is only #51 so next week marks one year of Fake Movie Fridays. This title comes from Brian Fitzpatrick, a simple man if not bland gentleman. Well at least I think this is what he said. Wow, this turned out long.

Cauliflower Revisited

Movie opens on a child on a bus staring over a seat. His mother pulls him down and tells him to stop staring. He sits back as the camera pans over the seat and past a cauliflower eared man. The woman apologizes for her son and says, “Wait aren’t you William? Tom and Cindy’s kid? I was real sorry to hear.” William simply nods and turns toward the window.

Fake Movie Friday: Kentucky Time Wedding

I’m going to be honest here, I can’t exactly remember the name of the fake movie title I received as a suggestion at the show last night. I think this is it, but I’m not totally sure. I’m pretty sure Kentucky was in the title. And Wedding. Thanks to improv troupe Florence for the suggestion and sorry that I got drunk and forgot it. This a 52nd consecutive FMF for both Pete and myself… 1 year strong … Congrats Pete. Here’s to 52 weeks of terrible ideas, worse movies, great titles and no proof reading!

Kentucky Time Wedding

1980’s. Jacob owns a watch shop in Horse Cave, Kentucky. It’s been in his family for generations, owned by his father before him, his fathers father before that and his fathers fathers father before that. Kentucky Time is the name of the shop. Jacob had to take over working at the shop after his father passed and supports his mother. He spends almost all of his time at the shop and hasn’t had a girlfriend in years, since his fiance, Emily, died in a horrible auto accident that also took his fathers life.

Trailer Round Up – Deceptive Practice/ An Honest Liar

I mostly know of Ricky Jay from his work with Mamet so I am very interested to learn more about his magic career. This trailer reminded me of another film that’s been on my radar for a while, the documentary about one of my all time heroes James Randi. This trailer is about a year old and it looks like the documentary is completed but it is pretty expensive. Hopefully it will hit Netflix soon.

Trailer Round Up – R.I.P.D.

Most people have brought up how similar this feels to Men In Black with good reason. Some of the jokes were pretty broad, but for the most part RIPD looks pretty fun. Someone in the comments pointed out that this should have really came out in October and not in July which I completely agree with. With Pacific Rim coming out the week before and Wolverine the week after, this has a good chance of tanking.
