“Star Wars”! “The Wizard Of Oz!” “Les Miz!” Hilarious Movie Plot Summaries! “2001: A Space Odyssey” Review!

The Great Sci-Fi Epic “Star Wars!”

One of the most beloved series in film history came from the mind of George Lucas, and continues to entertain people around the world today…remember the plot?

@RealCinemania on Twitter brought this “Star Wars” summary to my attention:

So, I guess it’s all about how to look at something, right?

That brings me to this classic:

“The Wizard Of Oz!”

Without a doubt, this 1939 classic is beloved the world over – the story of a young girl and her dog, who follow the yellow brick road to Oz…and of course, the incredible characters they meet along the way:

Of course, there are wicked witches, flying monkeys and an irritable guy behind a curtain to contend with – which leads to this hilarious summation that was published in TV Guide’s listing page:


And do you remember this crowd pleasing musical?

Yes, “Les Miserables” is a timeless musical, and was turned into a great film as well:

Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried and Russell Crowe were all terrific in the film – and so Sam Richardson shared his opinion of the film this way:

Can’t argue with this!

Finally, my wife admits she isn’t a fan of most science fiction – and there, not a fan of this film at all:

2001: A Space Odyssey!

Yes, Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 masterpiece is a mind-blowing experience, and moviegoers were dazzled AND perplexed by what flooded by them in one of cinema’s most wildly imaginative films of all time…

My wife, however, saw it years later and had this short, six word review:

“Some Dumb Astronaut. Some Dumb Baby.”

Well, she’s accurate about the plot line at least!

Let me know if you have a funny movie plot summary to share!

  1. Ha ha ha! Very on point! Reminds me of the “how it should have ended” shorts on you tube. The “LOTR” one is THE BEST! It proves that the books/movies could have been about 20 minutes long. Ha ha!

  3. Your wife’s review of 2001 is amusing indeed, and because she is young, (and very pretty of course) I will forgive her that ‘cinematic sacrilege’. Maybe you ‘had to be there’, but 2001 is, for me, one of the most visually stunning films ever made. I don’t even care that it has no real plot.
    Star Wars was based on the Kurosawa film, The Hidden Fortress. Lucas took the plot, and turned some of the characters in R2D2 and C3PO, keeping the princess, and the brave warrior. I liked them both, but give Akira the edge.
    Best wishes, Pete.
