Been thinking of movies to flip the McGuffin on for this week’s hot ds106 assignment, Messing with the McGuffin:
Wikipedia defines the MacGuffin as “a plot element that catches the viewers’ attention or drives the plot of a work of fiction.” For this assignment forever change the plot of a movie, tv show, etc. by changing a single line of dialogue. Put this new line of dialogue below a screen-cap of the moment in the movie you’re changing.
So if Luke had just slept off the binge, he would have awoken a happy well adjusted man, not eaten 50 eggs, etc… and we’d have a dull-ass movie.
What we have here is a failure to MacGuffin-ate.
