They say that memories are like the corners of your mind, though why they're quoting Grizabella from Cats, when she clearly no longer has any pull with the younger glamour cats, is anyone's guess. Proving the corners of his mind are pretty damn inaccurate as well, the dude behind Movies I Don't Remember.
MIDR is a blog started by a friend of the How To Beat Up Anything guy, in which he posts a single synopsis each day of a movie he once saw without rewatching or doing any research on the movie, inspired by a cable write-up of Jurassic Park III that got every single fact about the movie wrong, including the fact that it's appropriate for human consumption. Among those featured:
The Hunt for Red October: "Skinny Alec Baldwin plays Harrison Ford and somehow gets on the submarine at some point....In the end, two submarines crash into each other due to Sean Connery's excellent submarine-driving skills, and Sean Connery gets a lakehouse."
The French Connection: "Roy Scheider's kind of a racist. No: Gene Hackman is. Also, Roy Scheider comes by Gene Hackman's apartment and Gene Hackman's been handcuffed to the bed by some girl... In the end I think the bad guy actually gets away. This movie is incredibly '70s."
The Matrix Revolutions: "Neo's blind now but maybe has Matrix powers outside of the Matrix, and there's a five-hour battle scene between those squid and guys in the robot suits from Aliens. Neo's body gets taken away by the robots, and then the Oracle and somebody else have a conversation on a bench with a sunset."
Each entry's paired with a still from the movie, which the guy claims he doesn't look up until after he's done writing, and the entries tend to come out a few times a week, which is a few times too many, if you're talking about a mangy old hooker-cat.
