I miss the Haiku feature. Wonder if there's any interest in just writing haiku reviews, and see if people can tell which film it is.

Example:

a whale of a tale
of frankenstein's director
and his new yard boy

The challenge would be to be unobvious but to absolutely, uniquely identify the film...

Oooh, I LIKE this. I'm guessing Gods and Monsters? So, if I guess right do I get to do the next one?

If yes -

Three are in dresses
But only two must avoid
A relationship

You were RIGHT, Babe--Gods and Monsters it is. Just watched it on DVD.

My guess for yours is Some Like It Hot...

You got it, BB! Judge Roy Bean, "The Law West of the Pecos" and larger than life, worshipped Lillie Langtry, and (spoiler alert!)blew away the albino Bad Bob in their one and only confrontation. Here's the YouTube of that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubjIc3qLPds

I think I'm stumped--closest I can come up with is "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey" but those were evil android doubles, not clones...someone else want to jump in?
