Classic movies boiled down to three lines of dialogue

Posted on


Gollum_lI’m loving this bit from the wags at McSweeney’s (hat tip to Movie City News), which reduces classic movies to their essences in just three lines of dialogue or less. It looked like fun to me, and I thought we should try it here, PopWatchers. Here, for instance, is The Sixth Sense:

HALEY JOEL OSMENT: I see dead people.
BRUCE WILLIS: Don’t worry, you’ll be all right…

After the jump, the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy in just three lines…

GANDALF: You must destroy the ring, Frodo.
GOLLUM (pictured): My preciousssss! [Chomp!]
FRODO: Ouch.

Your turn.
