YOU Can Write a Monster Movie as good as Godzilla! Just Fill In The Blanks!


Hello, loyal readers! I recently watched the new Godzilla movie and I can honestly say I was AMAZED.
It really is an empowering experience to see that truly anyone—regardless of talent, formal training, or even access to editors and proofreaders—can write the script for a blockbuster monster movie!

In case you can’t tell, I’m not a big fan of this movie–Godzilla vs Mothra was my favorite–but I’m trying to be more positive!

Godzilla as Nature intended.

Godzilla was originally conceived as a cross between a Whale and a Gorilla. Gorilla + Kujira (Japanese for Whale) = Godzilla

I’m so excited, I’m going to help you out with the form! Just choose words based on the list of prompts below before reading the story, fill the words in the blanks with the corresponding number, then share your monster movie with the public! You’ll instantly be praised with high reviews and critical acclaim.

Flash forward 15 years and his son, Brody McBrostein is an      5    . When he gets word that his dad is in trouble with the law, Brody Bro-Bro embarks to pick him up. But it turns out Jojo was right—the accident was really caused by      6    : a Giant      7     Monster that attacks with      8    . The Monster is set loose through the incompetence of the US military, who are now involved in      1     for no good reason, and the loss of human life is staggering.

The only hope to defeat the monster is either a nuclear warhead or      9    —a creature the size of a      10    . So the US military naturally decides to try both!

All seems lost when Brody witnesses      9    defeated at the hands of the monster, and the US loses control of the nuke, endangering      11     more human lives!
But then, through the sheer power of      12     and plot-holes, Brody Broham gets the nuke out of range of US soil, gets knocked out and is rescued, then flown safely away from the blast all within       13   !

Then it turns out      9     isn’t dead after all but was just pretending and kills the monster using his     14     attack like he should have done the first time he saw the monster.  And he leaves without eating it, contrary to what everybody in the movie said he was gonna do, and slavering fans      15     all over the screen, calling it the best      9     movie of all time.

  1. Here’s one my wife did as an example:

    In the Heart Of Uzbekistan Jojo McBrostein, a Urologist is concerned that there’s an impending tornado that could bust up his science lab real bad. Turns out he was right, and his Human Sized Flea was killed in the aftermath.
    Flash forward 15 years and his son, Brody McBrostein is a Rear Admiral. When he gets word that his dad is in trouble with the law, Brody Bro-Bro embarks to pick him up. But it turns out Jojo was right—the accident was really caused by Blooblefart: a Giant Tarsier Monster that attacks with Spontaneous Human Combustion. The Monster is set loose through the incompetence of the US military, who are now involved in Uzbekistan for no good reason, and the loss of human life is staggering.
    The only hope to defeat the monster is either a nuclear warhead or Frankenstein—a creature the size of a Hospital. So the US military naturally decides to try both!
    All seems lost when Brody witnesses Frankenstein defeated at the hands of the monster, and the US loses control of the nuke, endangering 999999999.1 more human lives!
    But then, through the sheer power of unexplained malfunctions and plotholes, Brody Broham gets the nuke out of range of US soil, gets knocked out and is rescued, then flown back OUT of range of the blast all within seconds!
    Then it turns out Frankenstein isn’t dead after all but was just pretending and kills the monster using his super breath attack like he should have done the first time he saw the monster. And he leaves without eating it, contrary to what everybody in the movie said he was gonna do, and slavering fans spooge all over the screen, calling it the best Frankenstein movie of all time.

  2. if you went to see a movie with a plot and good subject matter, you went to the wrong movie. this was never intended to be a serious plot, it in fact very neatly follows almost every godzilla movie plot as you have pointed out. but that was why people went to see it. it embodies the basic point that Blue oyster cult says about it….

    People find out again and again that nature points out the folly of man, Godzilla!

    that is a summation of all godzilla movies ever. and its true, so we watch it. if you went to see a monster kill dumb people, like my family did, you will enjoy this movie immensely.

    • I heard “reboot” and I thought of the original Godzilla–the one that WAS serious and thought provoking–so sure, maybe I was misinformed and had wrong expectations. I agree with you there.

      But there is NEVER an excuse for plotholes, and the point I was driving at with satire is that the movie suffers from lazy writing. I don’t care how light in tone a movie is, movies which treat their audience like morons are foul. Godzilla 2014 does that in spades.

      Thanks for the comment!

  3. So fun! I came over from Susie’s Ride for this dance. Here’s my effort–

    In the Heart Of Luxembourg Jojo McBrostein, a Icthyologist is concerned that there’s an impending tornado that could bust up his science lab real bad. Turns out he was right, and his ménage à trois was killed in the aftermath.

    Flash forward 15 years and his son, Brody McBrostein is an Airforce Drum Majorette . When he gets word that his dad is in trouble with the law, Brody Bro-Bro embarks to pick him up. But it turns out Jojo was right—the accident was really caused by Grigilator : a Giant Puma Monster that attacks with heat lightning . The Monster is set loose through the incompetence of the US military, who are now involved in Luxembourg for no good reason, and the loss of human life is staggering.

    The only hope to defeat the monster is either a nuclear warhead or Frankenstein —a creature the size of a Guggenheim Museum . So the US military naturally decides to try both!

    All seems lost when Brody witnesses Frankenstein defeated at the hands of the monster, and the US loses control of the nuke, endangering 73 more human lives!
    But then, through the sheer power of The Angel of Snark and plot-holes, Brody Broham gets the nuke out of range of US soil, gets knocked out and is rescued, then flown safely away from the blast all within 37 seconds !

    Then it turns out Frankenstein isn’t dead after all but was just pretending and kills the monster using his Laundry Woman attack like he should have done the first time he saw the monster. And he leaves without eating it, contrary to what everybody in the movie said he was gonna do, and slavering fans doodoo all over the screen, calling it the best Frankenstein movie of all time.

    • Sweet!
      Frankenstein is a popular monster–this is the second “Write your own” that’ he’s shown up in.
      Thanks for the story!

  4. I will have to try this when I have time! What fun!!!!
    Thanks for coming to the party Ensis! There are a few new faces in the crowd and they’d love to meet you!

    Here it is. I don’t think mine turned out all that well…

    In the Heart Of Germany Jojo McBrostein, a Dr.Holden is concerned that there’s an impending flood that could bust up his science lab real bad. Turns out he was right, and his love was killed in the aftermath.

    Flash forward 15 years and his son, Brody McBrostein is a soldier . When he gets word that his dad is in trouble with the law, Brody Bro-Bro embarks to pick him up. But it turns out Jojo was right—the accident was really caused by stinky socks : a Giant dog Monster that attacks with flashing lights in the night . The Monster is set loose through the incompetence of the US military, who are now involved in Germany for no good reason, and the loss of human life is staggering.

    The only hope to defeat the monster is either a nuclear warhead or one eyed blue snake —a creature the size of my house . So the US military naturally decides to try both!

    All seems lost when Brody witnesses one eye blue snake defeated at the hands of the monster, and the US loses control of the nuke, endangering more human lives!
    But then, through the sheer power of Leander and plot-holes, Brody Broham gets the nuke out of range of US soil, gets knocked out and is rescued, then flown safely away from the blast all within two minutes !

    Then it turns out one eye blue snake isn’t dead after all but was just pretending and kills the monster using his healing attack like he should have done the first time he saw the monster. And he leaves without eating it, contrary to what everybody in the movie said he was gonna do, and slavering fans piss all over the screen, calling it the best one eye blue snake movie of all time.

    • I would watch a One Eye Blue Snake monster movie.
      Is that a euphemism for something?
      Anyway, I think it turned out great–Thanks for playing along!

      • Now that you mention it… No Just kidding.
        Thanks. I only ever watch very funny movies or ramantic movies. That is probably why I love the new Adem Sandler movie it is a perfect mix of romance and humor. I’m not sure what it is called in English, ”Urlaubs Reif” in German.

        • I just looked at the link you put up. So funny. I think at this piont I would watch any movie which Adam Sandler produces and acts as the main character.

          ”First 50 dates”, ”Zohan”, ”Just go with it”, ”Grown Ups” 1 and 2, ”Click”, ”Spanglish”

          I’m laughing just thinking about them. So funny. I see something new every time I watch one. Some of the rare films that I can watch over and over.

          But I really like ”Little Women”. That is another without Adam that I could watch more than once.

          His films are just so rediculous and at the same time clever. Sometime political and always funny, but not over the top gross. He pushed the lines but never crosses them.

        • I’m not a huge fan of the older movies. I laugh when I see them but the recent stuff hits me on a holedifferent level.

  6. Susie sent me. Great post. As a screenwriter, I should probably try your method and see if it makes the process easier for me. 🙂

  7. Susie sent me over to have some fun…and I love Mad Libs. 😀

    In the Heart of Monaco Jojo McBrostein, a biologist is concerned that there’s an impending volcanic eruption that could bust up his science lab real bad. Turns out he was right, and his gay lover was killed in the aftermath.

    Flash forward 15 years and his son, Brody McBrostein is a sonar tech. When he gets word that his dad is in trouble with the law, Brody Bro-Bro embarks to pick him up. But it turns out Jojo was right—the accident was really caused by Blubber: a Giant 7 Monster that attacks with Aurora Australis. The Monster is set loose through the incompetence of the US military, who are now involved in Monaco for no good reason, and the loss of human life is staggering.

    The only hope to defeat the monster is either a nuclear warhead or Dr. Octopus—a creature the size of an apartment. So the US military naturally decides to try both!

    All seems lost when Brody witnesses Dr. Octopus defeated at the hands of the monster, and the US loses control of the nuke, endangering sixteen more human lives! But then, through the sheer power of flash floods and plot-holes, Brody Broham gets the nuke out of range of US soil, gets knocked out and is rescued, then flown safely away from the blast all within fourteen years!

    Then it turns out Dr. Octopus isn’t dead after all but was just pretending and kills the monster using his flying attack like he should have done the first time he saw the monster. And he leaves without eating it, contrary to what everybody in the movie said he was gonna do, and slavering fans shit all over the screen, calling it the best Dr. Octopus movie of all time.
