Movies as Code: If Screenplays Were Written By Coders

Movies as code: Titanic

Ben Howdle’s Movies as Code is a clever treatment for film scripts that retells major movie plots in concise, ‘codified’ terms.

Movies as Code uses the language of PHP to spin its stories. [PHP is how you are seeing this WordPress blog, and as a lover of objects, I’m happy to report that while not ‘officially’ an object-oriented language, PHP “supports objects”.] That’s about as geeky as I’m qualified to get about code, so I’ll leave you with something we can all relate to: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
