Movie Quiz

I was planning to post some photos of the beautiful biscornu Carol stitched for me but they came out funny so I'll have to try again in the morning. In the meantime I found this quiz on Sweet Pea's site and it looked like a lot of fun. The hard part was choosing only 15 movies.

The rules are as follows:
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. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.
5. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

How about a few hints? I'll start by telling if the speaker is male or female.

1. If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals. (male)Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire guessed by Terri

2. Let's never come here again because it will never be as much fun.

3. Let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love. Love Actually guessed by Jennifer.

4. It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces. Bridget Jones Diary guessed by Jennifer.

5. Why are you doing this to me, Joe? Every time I talk myself out of it, you come around and make it sound so easy. (female)

6. Of course, we're not going to go round parading ourselves in a room full of men. This isn't... France, for God's sake! (female)Calendar Girls guessed by Kathy

7. I dunno, really... Let's see, there's the, uh... The bump, the stomp, the bus stop... Me breakdancing days are probably over, but there's always the funky chicken. (male)The Full Monty guessed by WillZ

8. I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count.Titanic guessed by Melody.

9. Wonderful girl. Either I'm going to kill her or I'm beginning to like her.(male - I saw this movie on my first date! His kid brother was so mad that we didn't take him with us.)Star Wars guessed by WillZ

10. A long time ago, you took something from me... the only thing I'd ever truly wanted... Well, now you know how is feels.(female)

11. I'm 26, and I'm single, and a school teacher, and that's the bottom of the pit. And the only excitement I've known is here with me now. I'll go with you, and I won't whine, and I'll sew your socks, and I'll stitch you when you're wounded, and I'll do anything you ask of me except one thing. I won't watch you die. I'll miss that scene if you don't mind.(female - this was the first PG rated movie I was ever allowed to see when I was a kid which should give you a hint on the date since I'm in my 40's)Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid guessed by Terri

12. I'm not crazy, I've just been a very bad mood for the last 40 years!(female Steel Magnolias guessed by Annette.

13. Don't you ever talk about my friends. You don't know any of my friends. You don't look at any of my friends. And you certainly wouldn't condescend to speak to any of my friends.The Breakfast Club guessed by Jennifer.

14. Second shelf is mine. That's where I keep my rootbeers and my double-thick Oreo cookies. Nobody touches the second shelf but me.The Lost Boys guessed by Jennifer.

15. My family is big and loud but they're my family. We fight and we laugh and yes, we roast lamb on a spit in the front yard. And where ever I go, what ever I do they will always be there.My Big Fat Greek Wedding guessed by Melody.

Many of them sound really familiar ... but I'm drawing a huge blank on all of them.

3. Love Actually. (Great choice!)

4. Bridget Jones's Diary (Another great choice. The books were awesome, but Renee Z really did her justice)

14. The Lost Boys. (I LOVED This movie. I must have watched it 100 times when it came out on video.)

Thankful~Threads said...

I think...
#5 is from "Meet Joe Black" - Great movie pick! And
#6 is definitely "Calendar Girls".

Chris said...

5 is not Meet Joe Black. I've never seen that movie but I'm going to add it to my Netflix queue.
