2008/02/08 17:39:00 - That Film Meme (anglicised)
Taken from marnanel and many others…

Meme rulesguidelines:
1. Pick 15 of your favourite moviesfilms. However, I didn't get to 15. Mrfl
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each moviefilms.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDB search functions, 'cos that'd be cheating.

FILM:The Princess Bride (simont)
Fezzik:Why do you wear a mask? Were you burned by acid, or something like that?
Man in Black:Oh no, it's just that they're terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future.


FILM:Star Trek IV (simont)
Spock:Your use of language has altered since our arrival. It is currently laced with, shall we say, more colorful metaphors, "double dumb-ass on you" and so forth.
Kirk:Oh, you mean the profanity?
Spock:Yes.
Kirk:Well that's simply the way they talk here. Nobody pays any attention to you unless you swear every other word.


FILM:Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (teleute)
Davey Jones:I wonder, F, can you live with this? Can you condemn an innocent man, a friend, to a lifetime of servitude in your name while you roam free?
Jack Sparrow:[thinks for a second] Yep. I'm good with it.


FILM:Back to the Future (king_of_wrong)
Doc Brown:There's that word again; "heavy". Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull?


FILM:The Magic Roundabout (morganmuffle)
Zebedee:Nothing will grow. Not even grass.
Dylan:No grass? Right we've got a problem, man.


FILM:TRON (simont)
Dr Gibbs:Ha, ha. You've got to expect some static. After all, computers are just machines; they can't think.
Alan:Some programs will be thinking soon.
Dr Gibbs:Won't that be grand? Computers and the programs will start thinking and the people will stop.


FILM:Bladerunner (mobbsy)
Roy Batty:Fiery the angels fell. Deep thunder rolled around their shores... burning with the fires of Orc.


FILM:X-Men 2 (morganmuffle)
Nightcrawler:The lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of the death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.


FILM:Titan AE (williamjm)
Akima:What exactly are we looking for?
Cale:This ship's gonna help us save mankind.
Akima:What exactly are we looking for?
Cale:Not a clue.


FILM:Babylon 5: In the Beginning (despotliz)
Londo:The humans, I think, knew they were doomed. But where another race would surrender to despair, the humans fought back with even greater strength. They made the X fight for every inch of space. In my life, I have never seen anything like it. They would weep, They would pray, They would say goodbye to their loved ones, then throw themselves without fear or hesitation into the very face of death itself, never surrendering. No one who saw them fighting against the inevitable, could help but be moved to tears by their courage, their stubborn nobility. When they ran out of ships they used guns. When they ran out of guns they used knives and sticks, and bare hands. They were magnificent. I only hope that when it is my time, I may die with half as much dignity as I saw in their eyes in the end. They did this for two years. They never ran out of courage. But in the end, they ran out of time.


(OK, so M: is a little unfair, but if you don't get it I'll give you another clue...).

Yes. Londo Mollari, somewhere near the beginning of the film if I remember correctly.

Do I get partial credit for saying Pulp Fiction for M, whatever the answer is?

I don't know, does the person in Pulp Fiction have Nightcrawler's linguistic peculiarities?

No, they have different linguistic peculiarities :) (I could tell it wasn't right, as the Pulp version is different, so I only wanted *partial* credit ;) although admit I hadn't noticed the differences of this one from the original, or I might have managed to guess more accurately.)

M is presumably not Pulp Fiction, although it's a quote from that film too

It is indeed. I can't for the life of me think what Batty's referent was though.

A/B is The Princess Bride, of course.

I think C/D is the Star Trek where they go back to 20th century Earth. Star Trek IV?

J/K is Tron.

I know P too, but despotliz has got there first. I'm more confident than she is that she's right, though :-)

Right on all accounts.

I had some difficulty picking a Princess Bride one that wasn't either (a) obvious or (b) a spoiler....

I see they're planning on making a sequel to Tron....

A/B is, of course, The Princess Bride (Fezzik to Dread Pirate Roberts)

G is Back to the Future (Dr Emmett L Brown)

I'm sure I've seen C/D - how many films have "double dumb-ass on you" as a line? - but I can't remember anything about it.

P is definitely JMS' style, but I can't place it.

simont just beat you to The Princess Bride, but you're right about Back to the Future.

N/O is Titan:AE, I think?

I did think the sequence in In The Beginning that featured P was very well done.

Is M X-Men 2? That's the only film I've seen that has "the valley of the shadow of THE death" in it.

I'm fairly sure G is Back to the Future.

And worringly I'm fairly certain H&I is the Magic Roundabout (why is that the only other one I recgonise? It's not even aprticualrly good much as I love the Roundabout's inhabitants)

Nightcrawler's speech patterns are slightly strange, aren't they... :).

And the Magic Roundabout was quite fun even if not particularly good.

E/F is one of the Pirates movies. Not the first. I think it's from the second, but I'm not completely sure. That would be Dead Man's Chest.

(Although since there are no quotes from the first PotC, that would suggest, from the meme description that you liked the second better, which would be unusual.)

OK, so M is from the second film. I actually liked the first film better but the second film has more raw fun in it (but a lot less good plotting).
