"The machine came back."
The Oscars is to movies what the World Cup is to football. And while the Oscars may be over for 2018 and the newest nominations only come out in a year -all the winning movies are eternal.
The Academy Awards yesterday started a Twitter challenge, where fans were asked to summarize the plot of their favorite film in five words. This was similar to an already existing challenge, "Explain a film plot badly."
Share the plot of your favorite movie in five words.

While most of these like Terminator, The Exorcist, Inception andThe Breakfast Club can be guessed - some of them get a little bizzare - Can you guess what the movies are?
