Fun Game, Not Hard

Okay, so here's where I jump on the bandwagon, and post my own IMDB Keyword movie quiz. Except, unlike some people I know, I'm not going to post obscure keywords which hardly have anything to do with the movie. You people should be able to get all of these easily. Provided you've seen the movies. Some of these are perhaps less well known. So here they are, in no particular order, some of my faves of all time:
  1. Blood Splatter, Bride, Vengeance, Female Assassin, Shot In The Head - Kill Bill
  2. Catholicism, Vigilante, Irish - Boondock Saints
  3. Female Bonding, Southern U.S., Cannibalism, Trial, Train - Fried Green Tomatoes
  4. Sexual Harassment, Femme Fatale, Manipulation - Disclosure
  5. Wish Fulfillment, Escher Stairway, Goblin - Labyrinth
  6. Pirate, Music, Boy Meets Girl - The Pirate Movie
  7. Revenge, Marooned, Outer Space, Terraforming, Wrath - Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
  8. Spell, Sister Sister Relationship, Eyes Different Colour - Practical Magic
  9. Dance Lesson, Abortion, Forbidden Love - Dirty Dancing
  10. Future, Eugenics, Romance, Blood Test, Mistaken Identity - Gattaca

Very Good Frances. You are correct on all, but not the last one. #10 is something else.

1. Devil's Own?
6. Pirates of the Caribbean?
10. the Fifth Element?

Oh, these are hard Violette.

Violette said...

Sorry, wrong, wrong, and wrong. I really did try to pick the most obvious keywords for each movie. But like I said, if you haven't seen the movie, it can be really hard to get. I'm not sure if you've seen any of these librarychik... except #7. I'm sure you've seen that one.

Ummm, it is I Puddleglum, here for some mystery solving. Perhaps I have a few...

2. Boondock Saints
6. Pirates (Or...Is it called Pirates of Penzance...Or...does it mock Pirats of Penzance??)
10. That movie with Robin Williams as the Robot...based on Isacc Asimov's Robot Novels...I got nothin'.

Sorry Violette, not sure I'm much good at this.

Bravo Puddleglum. I knew you'd come through. You are quite correct about #2, and #6 (the actual title is just "The Pirate Movie"). If anyone hasn't seen The Pirate Movie, then go out and rent it NOW. It is considered one of the worst movies of all time, simply because it lost a ton of money, BUT I think the movie is awesome. I challenge you to watch it and not fall in love with it. Give me a happy ending, every time. But alas, Puddleglum, you are not correct on #10. In any case, I've added a few new keywords, but I'm not sure it will help. I think this is mostly a case of people not having seen the movies.

Hmm, not sure if that worked.

#1 - Kill Bill.

Pants.

Violette said...

Yay Pants!

Ash said...

Is #10 Gattaca?

Violette said...

Yes! Ash got another one.

3. Fried Green Tomatoes.
7. I'm guessing something Star Trek. Although I'm not sure which one, because I've only seen "Nemesis" and I checked and it's not that one...

Violette said...

Yes, you've got them all. #7 is something Star Trek, and I'll just tell y'all what it is: The Wrath of Khan. Still my fave Star Trek movie, and has one of the best lines ever: "Revenge is a dish best served cold." Mwa ha ha.
