    Default Ideas needed for script.

    I am writing a 5 min film spoofing action films.

    All will be hung on a person going to shop to buy milk - I want to include as many cinematic cliches from various action films as i can.

    For example - matrix lobby scene when neo opens his coat, or start of res dogs when she gets out gun to rob people.

    Ideas gratefully recieved.

    Sure Mark "I'm" more then happy to help you with "your" script.

    What about mission impossible 3, where he picks up a throw a way camara for the mission breifing? Have you thought about the bullet time effects, or the 1st person view in doom?

    Have you watched Shoot 'Em Up? Lots of ridiculously, over the top action shots in there.

    Thanks guys - stuff need to be from ubiquatous films so people get most of the references.

    Hmm, the film 300, is that somewhat widely known? It's got a lot of action scenes and fighting moves in it as well.

    How about the rolling ball scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark - that part might be a tad costly, but the saving the hat bit would be easy. Or, what about Michael J Fox's reaction everytime anybody says 'What, are you chicken?' in Back to the Future.

    American Psycho - Chainsaw scene
    Star Wars - Any you care to mention
    Untouchables - Pram scheme
    Grosse Pointe Blank - Bomb in the microwave
    Mission Impossible - Suspended over floor

    Dialogue lines such as...

    I ain't got time to bleed!
    I'll be back!
    You're a member of the rebel alliance and a traitor. Take her away!
    We're gonna need a bigger boat!
    It's 20 footer. 25!


    Action shots such as....
    Contra zoom
    Roll and shoot
    Angle the gun sideways when shooting

    oh and just make sure in the big fight scenen at the end where the hero has to fight off a dozen asian kung fu experts that they all dance about menacingly but only actually attack one at a time.

    more if and when I can think of it.
