The Movie Meme

I saw this at Lemony and thought – too much effort. Then I saw it at Canned and thought, oh this one has legs then. And then Badger did it and so did Blackbird. So here I am.

*** UPDATE *** You’ve done so well! Only one to go… (let me know if you give up)

I’m even going to print the rules:

  1. Pick 10 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. GUESSERS: NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions. I mean, you can cheat if you want, but is it really that important?
  6. One movie guess per blogger. Give people a chance to guess before you steal all of the awesome!*

The movies

  1. I knew Kill would get the one about Babe the Pig There are many perfectly nice cats in the world, but every barrel has its bad apples, and it is well to heed the old adage, “Beware the bad cat bearing a grudge.”
  2. Well done Sarah O from lemon life, this quote most certainly is from Napoleon Dynamite Well, I have all your equipment in my locker. You should probably come get it cause I can’t fit my numchucks in there anymore.
  3. To begin… To begin… How to start? I’m hungry. I should get coffee. Coffee would help me think. Maybe I should write something first, then reward myself with coffee. Coffee and a muffin. Okay, so I need to establish the themes. Maybe a banana-nut. That’s a good muffin.
  4. Anonymous (who are you Anon???) got this one right – and indeed, it is seriously strange but obviously memorable, it’s I Heart Huckabees Say this blanket represents all the matter and energy in the universe, okay? This is me, this is you, And over here, this is the Eiffel Tower, right, it’s Paris!
  5. Jog it in Duyvken, it is most certainly from Transformers, a movie we have ordered on Foxtel so many times Chef went and bought it for us. Bumblebee is my favourite but Optimus Prime, well he is a hottie too…(Muz said it’s OK for me to lust after autobots) Hello? 911 emergency. My car’s been stolen! I’m in pursuit! I need the whole squadron, bring everyone! No, no don’t ask any questions, my father’s the head of the neighbourhood watch!
  6. Wehheyhey, snaps to Barbra for getting to double dip – it is from the c.l.a.s.s.ic. Footloose Did you ever get busted for boppin’? I mean, what is not to love about a movie in which a kid from out of town fights for the right to dance?
  7. Blackbird got this one – one of my current favourite movies, it’s from Stranger than Fiction You know there’s something called a nicotine patch.
    I don’t need a nicotine patch. I smoke cigarettes.


  8. Fannie Mae picked this one – it is indeed Shirley Maclaine’s character, Ouisa, from Steel Magnolias The only reason people are nice to me is because I have more money than God.
  9. Snaps to Barbra for getting this one – a beautiful lilting movie if ever I saw one, I’m still humming the main song from it and it has been MONTHS since I’ve seen it, it is from Once How come you don’t play during daytime? I see you here everyday.
    During the daytime people would want to hear songs that they know, just songs that they recognize. I play these song at night or I wouldn’t make any money. People wouldn’t listen.
    I listen.
  10. Jac got it – Fargo – the best movie for the International Girl Crush that is Frances McDormand Oh for Pete’s sake, he’s fleeing the interview! He’s fleeing the interview!
