9780575079892: Movies In Fifteen Minutes: The Ten Biggest Movies Ever For People Who Can't Be Bothered (GOLLANCZ S.F.)

The ten biggest grossing movies of all time would take nearly two days to watch end to end. And thats with no toilet breaks. And all you'd get to eat and drink would be enormo buckets of coke and popcorn and six inches of hideous pink extruded gunk in a bun.



Think of all those special effects, think of all those Hollywood family values, think of the unlikely plot twists, of the suspect character motivation, the sentimentality, the . . . shudder . . . dialogue.



Now here's a way to experience all those films in two and a half hours. With added jokes.



Titanic! Lord of the Rings! Harry Potter! Gladiator! And some others!



Cleolinda Jones has taken the biggest films ever and put them through a shredder. The result is ten hilarious scripts, ten uncannily accurate summations, ten easily digestible, slyly satiric attacks on everything that is wrong with the Hollywood blockbuster.



All informed by an encyclopaedic knowledge of, and genuine love for, the movies.
