Wow, I leave for two days and the CSC LiveJournal community EXPLODES!!

Because I’m more amused by this one, here’s the movie quote quiz:

[1] Pick 20 of your favorite movies.
[2] Pick a few lines of dialogue.
[3] As people guess the film, strike out that entry (and put the movie title, and who got it).

1. “Are you frightened?”
“Not nearly frightened enough. I know what hunts you.”
The Fellowship of the Ring (Aragorn and Frodo) – Pug

2. “Why, you ask, was I bound and chained in this cold and dismal place? Not for any mortal sin, but the wickedness of my abhorrent face!” The Phantom of the Opera – Elf

3.”And what exactly is it you do…do?” Young Frankenstein – Elf

4. “I have recieved two forks as well-
“Yes. It’s a new instrument, a devilish little thing to look at – and to use too. It’s for pronging meat with and carrying it to your mouth. It saves you dirtying your fingers.”

5. “I would my horse had the speed of your tongue.” Much Ado About Nothing (Benedick) – Crunch

6. “But we could get killed – or worse, expelled!” Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone (Hermione) – Crunch

8 “Hokey religions, and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.” Star Wars: A New Hope (Han) – Crunch

9. “Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most . . . human.” Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Kirk) – Crunch

12 “If we have unearned luck now, to ‘scape the serpent’s tongue – we shall make amends ere long!” A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Puck) – Elf

13. “Shall I describe it, or would you like me to get you a box?” The Two Towers (Legolas) – Pug

14. “This once belonged to a young, foolish boy, who spent more time slaying dragons than doing his studies.”
“This was yours?”
“Yes. My father had it made for me.”
“Well, I’m taller than you were then. Though I’m not likely to grow anymore… except sideways.”
The Return of the King – Pug

15. “I submit this as Exhibit X – ***** ****’s diary!”
“I object! My client has never held a diary! And even if she did, this would be… invasion of privacy, and violation of the fourth amendment, and… and illegal search without a warrant!”
“Yeah, AND she broke the lock!”
Chicago – Pug

16. “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!” Dr. Strangelove (the President) – Pug

Geez, Crunch, I’m surprised you didn’t get a few more!  😉   Fortunately for you, I’m not feeling feminist, so I won’t bash you for calling a mature woman a girl.

*blinks*….well, that takes care of what I know. Although I know I know 3.
Let’s guess, “The Man With the Iron Mask” for #2 Alex.

Elf wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

2 sounds like Phantom of the Opera
3 is Young Frankenstein

Odette wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

Less emphasis on “bound and chained”; more emphasis on “abhorrent face”. Besides, Tae, would I really pick a Leonardo di Caprio movie???

Gratified that I’ve picked at least a couple tricky ones…surprised that Chicago and Producers went so quickly!

And 12 is Puck! From Midsummer’s Night Dream. “As I am an honest Puck…”

4 will obviously be another Shakespeare play, but I have no idea which one it is.

Pug wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

I donno Elf, 4 sounds like it’s something Arthur Weasley would say.

Odette wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

Nope, you’re both way off on #4.

Elf wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

It strikes me as a history- y’know, like Shakespeare’s Richard some number and Henry some number. And if you’re saying it’s not Shakespeare, it’s going to be some pre-1970 movie like Cleopatra or Camelot. Though obviously not those two. I meant the genre- giant movie aping history to get awards for good acting, rather than factual story-telling.

I watch the A&E ‘history of the silver screen’ shows too much, don’t I?

Odette wrote a comment on October 16, 2005


Not a Shakespeare, Elf, though it is pre-1970, and yes, the point is more story than history. But it’s a story I find very intriguing and has a couple of my favorite actors in it.

Carmen wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

Well, I obviously checked this place too late. =P

Odette wrote a comment on October 16, 2005

They went like hotcakes! My favorite movies are fairly predictable, I’m afraid.

Care to comment?
