Movie Rewrites

A Movie Rewrite is when we change the end of a movie and add a few concepts to the story. They are a quick read, and are extremely entertaining.  Our rewrites challenge conventional imagination as we know it. Some have said, our Movie Rewrites are the most creative pieces of writing since Ink was created. Others have said they are completely ridiculous. Please judge for yourself.

The Movie Rewrite for “Ghost”

The movie rewrite for "Ghost"

Did you ever wish the movie “Ghost” ended differently ?

So in the Rewrite, Oda Mae Brown, which was played by Whoopi Goldberg’s, stayed in touch with Sam, played by Patrick Swayze, since he died in the movie in 1990.

Let’s fast forward to the end of 2015. So 25 years have passed now. Molly had a new life and moved on with time. She never remarried or felt that kind of love again like with Sam. But she did find contentment, and that’s good. Oda Mae became the psychic of psychics. She is so renowned, the CIA uses her services to track down terrorists through other terrorists that have died. It takes about 18 months to get an appointment with her now.  Anyway, Oda Mae sees Molly continues to struggle with relationships, it upsets her deeply.

Now truth be told, Oda Mae has kept in touch with Sam since his death, despite Molly not knowing. And being Steven Jobs, the Tech Icon who changed the world had passed away in October 2011, a bell went off in Oda Mae’s head to the likes of when Ben Siegel ( Bugsy ), in the 1940’s had a vision of Air Conditioned Casinos in the middle of the desert, now known as Las Vegas.  And Bam, she introduced Steve Jobs & Sam through her medium capabilities in the after-life.

They hit it off right away, a lot of synergy. Oda Mae pitched an idea to Mr. Jobs about creating a Hologram Application to mirror Sam’s image, which would be remotely controlled by the actual Sam in the after-life. Literally a spitting image in real time. Steve Jobs admitted he’d been working on that for a long time while alive. So Mr. Jobs went for it, and beta tested his Hologram Application with Sam.

Oda Mae was thrilled, she knew Molly would be elated. Having something beta tested with Mr. Jobs is as good as a done deal. Remember, this is the man who can do no wrong with applications and design. The only catch is that its just an image, even though its in real time. It’s not a physical being. Nonetheless, it soothed the loneliness for Molly as she had her best friend back.

Mr. Jobs was so moved by the Molly / Sam story, that he asked Oda Mae to introduce him to the actual deceased Patrick Swayze, and so she did. Steve Jobs knew Mr. Swayze had a pretty painful demise in the end, Jobs can relate. Upon meeting the actual Mr. Swayze, Mr. Jobs offered him the same hologram situation back to his ranch on the outskirts of Las Angels where he died. Patrick Swayze jumped with both feet at the offer.

Eventually, in the after-life, Sam, Patrick Swayze and Steve Jobs became so close,  they were called the three musketeers.

Mr. Jobs went on to explain to Sam and the actual Patrick Swayze, what those dark shadowy images making scary sounds in the movie “Ghost” were. He explained those were transporters to hell. They were specially created for Seal Clubbers, Dolphin and Whale slaughterers, bear baiters, bull fighters, people behind dog fighting, rooster fighting, farm animal abuse and so on, and so on, and so on. Those shadowy images stood for the lowest level of hell. It was such a hit in “Zip code Hell”, they now get called for all kinds of evil..

Sam and the actual Patrick Swayze were very grateful to Mr. Jobs. He once again changed lives, and after-lives for that matter. Mr. Jobs told them in secrecy that he was going to make a hologram og himself and go back to Apple and take back the CEO role in Cupertino, CA. Apparently traders on Wall Street got wind the news and the stock surged 1500 percent in 3 days.

The End. Movie still would’ve been great.

The Movie Rewrite for “Rocky 3”

Rocky 3 movie rewrite

Did you ever wish in the movie “Rocky 3” that Mickey did Not die “

In the rewrite, after Mickey passes away, Rocky is unable to deal with it. He didn’t think that time would ever heal him either. He needed some hope and to know that one day, he and Mickey would meet again.

At that moment, a bell when off in his head. Rocky remembered that when Ted Williams, the legendary baseball player, passed away, his family had Ted’s body frozen cryogenically. Crazily enough, Rocky decided to have the same thing done to Mickey.  The year was 1982. Fast forward 33 years to 2015, Rocky is now 64 years old. After all those years, not a day goes by when he doesn’t think of Mickey.

On his way home from work one night, Rocky was reminiscing about his famous fight with Mr T.  — While in heavy thought, he goes to call his wife and subconsciously dials Mickeys old number instead.  Micky had accidentally been frozen with his Very Rare Motorola cell phone only for VIP’s  while Rocky was was champ). The phone was left on vibrate at the time of his death. In a fluke electrical surge, the phone began vibrating and cracked the ice in a thousand pieces. Mickey fell right to the floor. Next thing you know, at 112 years old, Mickey stands up with the body and energy of a 25 year old man.

The cryogenic facility suddenly realized they didn’t need to wait for a Medical Breakthrough; it was actual time being frozen that restored a human being to normalcy. Meanwhile, Mickey with his new found youth, goes back into boxing with Rocky as his 61 year old trainer. He then goes onto becoming the Heavyweight Champion of the world at 112 years old and only 89 pounds.

Needless to say, Ted Williams’s family was ecstatic about the news regarding this new medical discovery and what it would mean for them, not to mention Cryogenics as a whole.  The Williams family Had Ted immediately had Ted removed from the ice. . Ted Williams also returned to his roots by going into the baseball business. Teds motives were different then Mickeys though, he actually found baseball very boring.  So this time around Ted was going to try to close the sport down for good. The End… The movie still would’ve been a great.

The Movie Rewrite for “The Life of Pi”

The movie rewrite for "The Life of Pi"

Good evening friends.

Welcome to the movie rewrite for “The Life of Pi.” — Now the truth is “Life of Pi” ended pretty well. But some parts have to be rewritten, which in turn will cause the end to change too.

Pi’s quote; “I was weeping because Richard Parker left me so unceremoniously. It broke my heart. You know my father was right: Richard Parker never saw me as his friend”

So in the Rewrite we’re going to mend Pi’s broken heart. Lets pick it up from the scene where after all the battles with Mother Nature, they finally made it safely to Mexico’s shores.

This is where the Tiger (Richard Parker)  jumps out of the boat and runs directly into the jungle without even glancing back back at Pi. After 227 days at sea, not even a glance.  You can feel the anguish when you think of all that time together at sea.  But we also have to remember what Pi said, “Tending to Richard Parker’s needs gives my life purpose” — And that purpose kept Pi marching forward each day and essentially kept him alive.

Remember, Richard Parker the Tiger grew up in a zoo and while he was always in training, he didn’t  have to fend for his food, it was provided for him.  And despite the magnitude of the shipwreck which set Pi and the Tiger on a 227 day journey, Richard Parker still didn’t have to fend for himself with food, Pi provided it by fishing for both of them.

The tiger finds himself  in the jungles of Mexico alone having to provide for himself for the first time. This was the scariest time in Richard Parker’s life.  Now if you remember in June of 2012, the tiger Vitaly in the movie “Madagascar 3” was always looking out for his circus buddies and was quite the risk taker.  Vitaly was now part of a failing circus that the Madagascar team hooked up with to make another attempt to reach home.  When they escaped the circus they fled to Mexico as well.  It turns out Vitaly and the gang were hiding out in the same Mexican Jungle that Richard Parker now finds himself in.  Being the Madagascar Crew had been there a few months already they helped provide Richard Parker with food.

Within a few weeks, Vitaly and Richard Parker were best friends. After all, they are both tigers and both grew up in a zoo entertaining people from near and far. So being the brave tiger that Vitaly likes to be, he suggests to Richard Parker they head to Hollywood to put their skills at use.  Vitaly was a smooth talker so took the role of the manager, and Richard Parker would be the actor.

When they got to Hollywood Vitaly  immediately gets Richard Parker the tiger an agent.  The agent sends Richard Parker on a call for a Frosted Flakes commercial, only now they wanted a real life Tony the Tiger actor instead of just the cartoon we’ve all grown accustomed to.  Low and behold, Richard Parker was a natural entertainer and a perfect fit. Richard Parker got so comfortable in his role, he suggested to Frosted Flake Cereal company that their slogan should be; “Have Frosted Flakes for breakfast and give your life purpose”

Needless to say that slogan became the main tagline for Frosted Flakes Cereal across the world. Eventually Pi caught wind of all this media surrounding the New Tiger’s face and tag line for for Frosted Flakes and realized it was Richard Parker.

Now at this point , Pi is a middle aged man living in Canada with his own family. Eventually, while The Frosted Flakes company was touring the world with their new ad campaign, they made their way to Canada; “eh” lol.  Slang joke right there.

Pi made sure to be at the location he heard the Cereal gang was coming to.  When he saw Pi after all this time he heart was pounding.  As Pi approached the Tiger Richard Parker, Richard ran up to him and said; “your father was wrong, I did see you as my friend, I didn’t look back because i saw the two Japanese investigators approaching from a far to rescue you.  I didn’t want to be captured and killed”  — Pi felt the weight of the world just unravel off his shoulders.

Pi looked Richard straight in the eyes and said; ” How did you come up with that slogan: “Have Frosted Flakes for breakfast and give your life Purpose?”  Richard Parker said; “I got it from you Pi, I knew that keeping me alive took you into adulthood and gave your life purpose”

The End…..  The Movie Still would’ve been great.

The Movie Rewrite for “Thelma and Louise”

Thelma & Louise

Did you ever wish the movie “Thelma and Louise” ended differently ?

In the Rewrite, when they drive off the cliff, Thelma and Louise at exactly the precise time and altitude pulled their hidden parachutes and land on the border of Mexico.

After weeks of migrating, they were introduced to the late Mexican American Actor, Anthony Quinn’s son and daughter. The Quinn’s were in pre-development mode for their new movie company. They made an offer to Thelma and Louise because of their American backgrounds.

The four of them hatched the new Movie Company called “Amexico Studios” — Meanwhile, back over the border in the USA, the character that Brad Pitt played gets charged with burglary for what he stole from Thelma (Geena Davis).  As a result, he then also flees to Mexico.

Crazily enough, when looking for work, the Brad Pitt guy answers an ad for a movie company looking for a lead Actor in their first movie “If Anthony Quinn were alive today”  —  When the Brad Pitt guy showed up for the audition, the room was dead silent because of his actions back in the states.  Fortunately, Thelma and Louise believed in forgiveness.  After all, they had made a ton of mistakes also.  So Amexico Studios gives the Brad Pitt guy a break and gives him the leading role. For the sake of Karma, the Brad Pitt guy returns the money that he stole from Thelma and Louise.

Meanwhile, the Film “If Anthony Quinn were still Alive” wins Best Global Picture of year and the Brad Pitt Guy wins the award for Best Actor.   As a result of all the success, The USA pardons Thelma and Louise, as well as the Brad Pitt guy and invites them back to the states.  Ironically, the three of them declined and decided to stay in Mexico.

I guess this what Christopher Cross meant in the 1980 song, “Ride like the Wind”, when he sang the lyrics, ♫♫♫ And I’ve got such a long way to go (such a long way to go) to make it to the border of Mexico ♫♫♫

The End…. The movie still would’ve been great.
