Movies in Fifteen Minutes (book)

Page history last edited by Cleolinda 13 years ago

The ten print-exclusive parodies from the Movies in Fifteen Minutes (book), in the order they appear:

 

 

Notes

  • The order is actually the chronological order in which the movies were released, starting with Jurassic Park in 1993 and the Lord of the Rings trilogy finishing in 2003.

  • "Independence Day" and "Spider-Man" are both written in slightly different formats; the former is the third parody in the book, and the latter is the third from the end.

  • Properly speaking, the title of the Harry Potter parody is "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Sorcerer's Stone."

  • There are a number of jokes recurring throughout the book, such as the Tiny White Mice.

  • The most frequent criticism I got in bad reviews was that the parodies were too long, which is true, but I wanted people to feel like they were getting their money's worth, particularly since I was asking them to pay for something they had previously gotten for free. The book actually clocks in at 403 pages, if I recall correctly. I also had no time to put the manuscript in a drawer and let it sleep for a little while, as people always advise writers so they can gain some perspective, since I had already missed three or four deadlines due to a kind of panicked perfectionism. This was my fault, obviously, and the one regret I have about the entire enterprise.
