When you’ve been writing about movies as long as I have, you at times start looking for something different. Something a little more fun. One of the things I used to love on the now defunct The Focused Filmographer were the Cinematicaptions articles. I want to bring that back to life as Creative Subtitles, which is all about fun! So what’s the idea?
You’ve probably watched TV with the sound off and made up yourself what the characters were saying. This is the same, but then using promotional shots from a couple of movies. It’s up to you to write down what they are talking about. The crazier, the better!
The pictures come from Downsizing, the latest Maze Runner film and The Killing of a Sacred Deer:
#1 – And then his friends knew that he was compensating for something – Nostra
#2 – “Do you think my date will recognise me by my rose?” – Nostra
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
#1 – That moment when teens realize that there is no wifi – Nostra
#2 – “Why are you looking so shocked? I hadn’t promised you a role in the latest Mission Impossible movie! – Nostra
The Killing of a Sacred Deer
#1 – Rebecca thought that the “curbstone faceplant challenge” would never go viral… – Nostra
