Movie Quote Meme

Thursday, March 06, 2008
Barbara, our resident Bad Tempered Zombie tagged me the other day with a movie quote quiz so I thought I'd share my own. For some reason, all of my movies with the exception of one seem to come from the 80s...what a great decade for movies... Without further ado, here are quotations from 11 of my favourite movies. See if you can name the films they come from (no googling or imdbing, please). I'll post the film names as they are correctly identified.

1. Out of commission, become a pillbox. Out of ammo, become a bunker. Out of time, become heroes.

2. Just look at the face: its vacant, with a hint of sadness. Like a drunk who's lost a bet. (Shaun of the Dead - Barbara B)

3. I ain't got time to bleed. (Predator - Shea)

4. Won't you gentlemen have a Pepsi?

5. Outstanding. Now all we need is a deck of cards. (Aliens - Heather)

6. Probably some local fisherman, out for a pleasure cruise, at eel infested waters... (Princess Bride - Shea)

7. Men should be like Kleenex: soft, strong and disposable.

8. If they find out you've seen this, your life will be worth less than a truckload of dead rats in a tampon factory.

9. Oh my God, the quarterback is TOAST! (Die Hard - Shea)

10. This is ridiculous. It's crazy. I feel like I'm babysitting, except I'm not getting paid. (Goonies - Jim Dandy)

11. What is best in life? To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women. (Conan - Heather)

Ooops. Forgot to tag a couple of don't have to do it if you don't want, but what the hell. Let's go with Wandering Coyote, Heather, Milla, Shea, and Andy this time around.

I Love the GOONIES! #10
I feel like such a loser, nothing else here even rings a bell?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks for playing, Captain, you are a good sport!

# 2 is from Shaun of the Dead(2004), one of my all-time favourites. Do I get bonus points for finding the non-1980s film?

And some of the others look tantilizingly familiar. I'll have to think on them.

JIM, you're not a loser...I have some pretty weird tastes in movies. I'm not expecting anyone to get number one. I think I may be one of the few people to see it (and own it!). Congrats on getting the Goonies! I wasn't sure if anyone would remember that line. Martha Plimpton rocked that movie.

BARB: Yes, you get double points but...since it was one of the movies from your own list, should it count? :)

I'm waiting for Shea to show up. I'm sure he'll get at least a couple of them. And I KNOW my brother, should he bother to comment, will know the answer to #11 since we discussed this line in relation to a quote from Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic.

Wandering Coyote said...

The only one I know for sure is #10, but I was beaten to it! Some of the others ring a bell, but I really can't identify the movies...

5)Ahhhhh i should know this one
6)Princess Bride

Heather said...

#5 is Aliens. That's what Hicks says after they have a look at the plans and figure out how to seal off the medlab and wait for the rescue ship.

#11 - Conan the Barbarian. Conan says it when they're sitting around the campfire, I think.

Karen said...

Nice work Heather! You even managed to remember the scenes they came from.

You too, Shea, although I'm shocked and surprised you missed the Hicks' quote from Aliens.

The ones that remain might be a bit difficult. I'll leave it up for another couple of hours and if no one's guessed them by the time I get home from work, I'll provide a clue or two.

Sheamus the... said...

I KNOW I KNOW!!!! I CANT BELIEVE IT it rings so true. Ha...i am embarrassed.

Wandering Coyote said...

11 of my favourite movies, eh?

Good thing I have a bit of time on my hands...

I'll let you know when it's up.

Wandering Coyote said...

OK, mine's up! Lots of fun, actually! I might actually do one for my fave TV shows, too.

Wandering Coyote said...

TV version now up!

Milla said...

Oh taking part in the game will be my Sunday job tamorrow!
