Movie Game!

Okay, I've seen this little game on several blogs and I've decided to try it out.

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search or other search functions.

The movies that I selected as my favorites may not all be critically acclaimed, but if I happen to be flipping through channels and come across one of these, I will automatically stop what I am doing and watch the whole thing. Most of them are pretty well-known, but I tried to avoid the most obvious quotes to make it a little more challenging.

1. “Now me and my loser friends are gonna head out to buy Aerosmith tickets.” Dazed and Confused. Nice work, Phil!

2. “Check out the big brain on Brett!” Pulp Fiction. Phil again, but JR gets credit for noticing that it should be Brad, not Brett. I'm 99.9% positive that it is Brad and IMDb is wrong on that.

3. “Probably some local fisherman, out for a pleasure cruise, at night... in... eel-infested waters...” The Princess Bride. Tom.

4. “Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here.” The Goonies, in perhaps the most inspirational soliloquy of all time. Phil. oops, I meant Tom.

5. “You never wanted my friendship and you were afraid to be in my debt.” The Godfather. Ryan.

6. “Somewhere out there is a lady who I think will never be a nun.” The Sound of Music. Yes, Tom!

7. "Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by wankers." Trainspotting. Yay, Ryan!

8. “You're gonna be a great writer someday, Gordie. You might even write about us guys if you ever get hard-up for material.” Stand By Me. Phil.

9. “I don't even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack.” Wayne's World. Phil is on a roll.

10. “I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.” V for Vendetta. and Matty V for the Victory!

11. “I've no plans to call on you, Clarice. The world is more interesting with you in it.” The Silence of the Lambs. Tom.

12. “It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.” Tombstone. Phil with a late guess.

13. “Yeah, well, don't worry about me. I'm gonna slingin' pizza for the rest of my life.” Mystic Pizza. Hot damn, Phil.

14. “But this is not a gift for an ordinary girl who takes care of a screaming baby.” Labyrinth. Eri.

15. “You used to be fun. You used to be warped and twisted and hilarious... and I mean that in the best way - I mean it as a compliment!” Say Anything. MJ!

Okay, readers, show me what you got. No cheating!

12. Tombstone????

Ryan said...

7. trainspotting
10. Point break? (Wishful thinking...)

eileen said...

Nice work so far. 10 and 14 are definitely the hardest, but I'm suprised no one's guessed #5. The line isn't famous, but the movie certainly is.

Ryan said...

5. Godfather

Eri said...

14. Labyrinth! B/C we just watched it!

Tom said...

Dude, why didn't I get credit for The Goonies!? It's on my list!

Movie Game Foul!


KcM said...

Dang, looks like i came too late and missed most of the fun. Don't know the last two, although Labyrinth sounds right.

eileen said...

Sorry, Tom, I fixed it.
Just one left...admittedly the hardest, but not super obscure or anything.

1. It obviously contains a character in a mask.
2. It came out within the last 5 years.
3. It's not Point Break.

C'mon, people!

MattyV said...

V for Vendetta is the last quote not identified

Caity said...

Ok I just read this and all of them are already named. BUT I can't believe I didn't include The Sound of Music on mine! I used to watch it DAILY on summer vacations when I was little!

eileen said...

Nice work, everyone. Now I'm in the mood to watch all of these movies again.

neil said...

how is v for vendetta hard...I've seen that movie 200 times...the only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
