- PLOT PUZZLE #1 - The above pictures are part of the first ever Plot Puzzle, soon to be a bi-monthly addition to Do You Have a Flag! The idea is to create your own visual narrative according to what you see, aka make up your own SHORT movie description.
- Keep your plot description as SHORT and ridiculous as possible, around 80 words or less, but even a kick ass sentence will do.
- Bonus points for creative movie titles
- You can comment here or email your plots to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The contest will be open for entries for 2 weeks. All entries MUST be in March 2nd. Winner and runners-up will be announced on March 3rd.
- There will be a link in the sidebar to all plot puzzles so you can come back to them.
Here's an example of what I would write: Set in the 1920's, flapper Janie (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is trying desperately to get out of the city and away from her past, but when an escaped inmate releases a mysterious toxin into the air, everyone in the city begins changing... into various forms of sea animals. As zombie mobs head out to sea to take their new found sea creature shape, Janie is running out of time to save her little brother from permanently becoming an evil seahorse. With the help of retired school teacher and former flame Baxter (Christian Bale), they race against the clock to save her brother and find their way back to each other.
Get the idea? I'm sure y'all can do better than me, SO START SENDING IN YOUR PLOTS!

- Flashlight Worthy Books has posted a great selection of 30 novels with cover designs so good, how could you resist?! And yes, I am one of those people that judges a book by it's cover, so all you "movie covers" out there are a waste of trees.
- Finally, check out the Lymelife trailer. The film stars Cynthia Nixon, Alec Baldwin, Kieran and Rory Culkin, Jill Hennessy and Emma Roberts. Set in the 70's, the film follows a divorce, and the coming of age of 15 year old Scott (Rory). I've been waiting for this for a long time, but really only because it marks the return of Kieran Culkin, who made me fall in love with him in The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys and Igby Goes Down.
