    This came up in the 30-words-or-less thread but apparently got lost, so I thought I would start again. Summarize/describe a movie (in a humorous fashion if you like)in a Haiku (5-7-5 syllables) Please try not to spoil without warning too.

    Captain Williard hunts
    For a rogue, U.S. Colonel
    Man, Brando is fat
    Apocalypse Now

    Man, that film was long
    But Cruise saying cunt was cool
    What's up with the frogs?
    Magnolia

    Leo and a boat
    Millions of teenage girls
    Help topple Star Wars
    Titanic

    Thanks for doing this. I was thinking about breaking it out into its own thread as I saw the spoiler debate swamping the thread. Here are the few I created earlier

    The Matrix
    Looking for "The One?"
    He is Mr. Anderson
    Neo to his friends

    The Hunt for Red October
    Does the sub captain
    Want a war or to defect?
    Ryan seems to know

    LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring
    Gandalf and Balrog
    Fell far and long; Balrog died
    Gandalf just turned white

    The One Ring must be
    Thrown into Mt. doom by whom?
    A Hobbit, of course!

    I find these pique my interest more than most film descriptions! Keep 'em coming!

    Deathstar approches
    Luke is unlikely hero
    Lucas loses touch

    Peter is a nerd
    Spider slobber changes him
    Dumps Dunst anyway
