So I'm too impatient to wait and see if anyone else has any guesses for the movie meme of several days ago
Here are the ones you missed:
2. "Andrew, we are not dead! We have cable!" - From the movie Nothing
which is awesome and hilarious. Evidence:
5. "What was that?"
"I rigged the football with C-4, sir."
"Why would you do that?" - From Three Kings
6. "You gotta walk before you crawl."
"Reverse that." - From Ocean's 11
13. "I'm exhausted."
"Yeah, me too. But you know I'm really wired. What do you say I... take you home and eat your pussy." - From Shark Attack 3: Megalodon
which is so funny and so terrible. Starring John Barrowman as the man who really can't play straight when he's given boobs to play with... Embedding is disabled, but here is the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1XOfHax6Q8
. It cuts off the sex scene, but really all you need is the line.
15. "The weekend has landed. All that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. I've got 48 hours off from the world, man. I'm gonna blow steam out my head like a screaming kettle, I'm gonna talk cod shit to strangers all night, I'm gonna lose the plot on the dancefloor." - From Human Traffic
which is about the club scene in Cardiff and stars (I'm looking at you vermin_disciple
) the lovely and talented John Simm. I've only seen this movie once all the way through, but we used to play scenes from YouTube before we went out partying because it's great for getting you pumped up!
17. "A minute ago this was the safest job in the world. Now it's turning into a bad day in Bosnia." - From Lock Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels
I was thinking about which movies that I choose and it's actually a bit of a bizarre combo - I like to think that means I'm a well rounded individual. So:
3 Canadian Movies - Nothing
, Men With Brooms
and Bon Cop, Bad Cop
4 "Kids" Movies - Lilo and Stitch
, Muppet Christmas Carol
, Titan AE
and The Emperor's New Groove
2 George Clooney Movies - Three Kings
and Ocean's 11
6 SciFi Movies - Lilo and Stitch
(What? There are aliens involved), Star Trek XI
(Also I am greatly ashamed that it took you all so long to guess that one), Aliens
, Titan AE
and Iron Man
(for our purposes I'm including superheroes in the SciFi category)
3 Marines Movies (2 of them of the Space variety) - Three Kings
(Space Marines!!!!) and Doom
(Karl Urban as a Space Marine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the Rock? Can this be wrong? I think not.) - (and I suppose you could argue Space Marines in Titan AE
And I'm sure I could come up with some other categories if I felt like it, but I a) am too lazy and b) have lost interest.
I actually found this list of twenty hard to compile. I was having a hard time thinking of twenty movies that fit in my "favourites" category. I think it's because very few movies have enough time for me to properly fall in love with the characters (some of the notable exceptions are above). So I love movies, and I like a lot of movies but most of them don't extend into "favourites" the same way that TV shows do.
