make it sound as crappy as possible! It's kinda hard.


In one of my favorite books, there's a boring librarian who has a genetic mutation that allows him to travel through time. He has a bunch of visits into the past where he spends time with a little girl, who he is quite fond of (sounds like a pedophile!). When she grows up, they get married...

That still sounds awesome because I've read that book three times and love it.

In one of my favourite movies an adulterous, money-grabbing has-been actor travels half the earth for money and disappoints a boring snob.

I love that book, too!

A self-absorbed old hag of an artist mopes around her home-town obsessing over boo-hoo past stuff and how she fell into a ditch while there were millions of starving children all over the world who should be so lucky.

In my favorite book, a far right wing religious zealot lives with his mom and tries to get a job, while writing a long winded, anachronistic manifesto. The book details his struggles with digestive problems, also.

A man with dissociative identity disorder and a death wish survives repeated combat deployments, and kills scores of aliens he doesn't understand while his friends die violently. A narcissist and a couple of scientists watch the movie of his life and wish he would just die already.

In one of my favorite books that is also an excellent movie, a struggling actor offers up his naive young wife to be Satan's surrogate mother for the local coven in exchange for greater acting roles...

Some ditzy chick in Japan hangs out with an old guy who can't sing very well talking about random stuff. They go to parties and act like twits. Eventually the guy cheats on his wife and everyone mopes around for a while until they go home. TEH END.

I could only figure out bastah's and solipsistnation's! Now I'm so curious.

An awkward girl starts stalking people in her neighborhood and doing creepy nice things and some childish pranks. She sees an equally awkward boy and stalks him, but is too shy to speak to him. Her slutty friend helps get them together.

YES! I demand that spoiler tags with the answers be put in this thread henceforth! Mostly because I seriously suck at this. Also, please tell me the answers to the above ones. I'm horrible!

I'm struggling through this one right now, I actually think you make it sound more exciting.

Two people in an apartment talk about stuff and look out of the window a lot. Some stuff happens in the house across from them. There is a scene where a dog digs in the garden.
