Some of my favorites:
FREAKS: Acrobat learns value of community.
METROPOLIS: Efficient society undone by unions.
STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE: Religious extremist terrorists destroy government installation, killing thousands.
V FOR VENDETTA: Dystopian government overthrown by faceless conformity.

What's odd about that site is that some of those descriptions are just mean-spirited but completely accurate, while others are clever complete mis-interpretations...

I like that the same description is used for "Aliens", "Rosemary's baby" & "Terminator":

"An unplanned pregnancy leads to complications."

Likewise for all the Gaiman entries (Mirrormask, Neverwhere, Coraline), and the pet ones...
