another movie quiz

Recommended Posts

ah yes, just when you thought you could get something in the office done, after a search I have found another quiz for you. I of course fail because I am not much of a movie watcher. On the other hand, I also have the answers.

mean and nasty Tom at it again, forcing you to solve these things.

as usual, give someone a chance to solve some of these before posting answers!

Can you identify all 41 movies from the trailer (catch phrase) used to promote the film?

For example:

Clue: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Answer: Star Wars

Got it? Good!

#1: Protecting the earth from the scum of the universe

#2: A little pig goes a long way.

#3: An adventure 65 million years in the making

#4: The coast is toast

#5: They're here!

#6: In space no one can hear you scream

#7: It was the Delta's against the rules...the rules lost!

#8: The heat is on!

#9: Get ready for rush hour

#10: Rush hour may be over...forever.

#11: You will believe.

#12: His whole life was a million-to-one shot.

#13: It's the story of a man, a woman and a rabbit in a triangle of trouble.

#14: Where were you in '62?

#15: You'll believe a man can fly!

#16: We are not alone.

#17: Love means never having to say you're sorry.

#18: The night HE came home

#19: Never give a saga an even break!

#20: The ultimate trip

#21: What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

#22: You don't assign him to murder cases, you just turn him loose.

#23: You won't know the facts until you've seen the fiction.

#24: They're here to save the world.

#25: They'll never get caught. They're on a mission from God.

#26: In memory, love lives forever.

#27: Don't give away the ending - it's the only one we have!

#28: A nervous romance.

#29: They're young...they're in love...and they kill people.

#30: The journey is everything.

#31: She was the first.

#32: This is the weekend they didn't play golf.

#33: This is Benjamin. He's a little worried about his future.

#34: Every man dies, not every man really lives.

#35: It's the story of their lives.

#36: Not that it matters, but most of it is true.

#37: A brutal murder. A brilliant killer. A cop who can't resist the danger.

#38: All it takes is a little confidence!

#39: A guy without a conscience! A dame without a heart!

#40: A love caught in the fire of revolution.

#41: For three men the Civil War wasn't hell. It was practice!

ok, so you folks have solved a couple, though I do like Santo Gold's answers.

I'm still waiting for WDIK to yell at me for posting a puzzle a few days before the weekend! :)

I do not recall ever yelling (typing in all caps) at you. However, please consider my irritation expressed.

answers all correct so far, except #29, though the one guy in the office here also had Natural Born Killers, so I looked up that movie and found the following taglines for it:

The Media Made Them Superstars.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the media circus of life, they were the main attraction.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A bold new film that takes a look at a country seduced by fame, obsessed by crime and consumed by the media.

I think this is a plot by Tom to distract us, so we won't pay attention to our clients, and he can steal them.

so far so good, though #16 offered 2 choices. one of those is correct.

Lame Duck:

my guess is "Sitting through one of my ASPPA presentations"

certainly they are 'trapped in time' for the duration of the presentation because they would feel bad if they got up and walked out.

and the energy level is certainly like running 'low on gas.'

#16 War of the Worlds

That was a pretty good guess on my question, Tom, but it's not exactly what I was looking for. Keep trying.

you went the wrong way on #16. just for the record.

but I guess that means the puzzle is solved.

as long as you had fun, dang, I didn't get a chance to take over some plans while pax worked out the puzzle.

hmmmm. I will have to work on formatting another puzzle. there is one based on television theme songs that I found.
