Five Minute Friday: Movies

Here we are, Friday again. I swear I've been wanting to post something all week, but I just haven't gotten here. I'm definitely in a bloggy slump. But it is Friday, and since I invented FMF a while back (and haven't always remembered to do it!), I have a built-in blog topic at least once a week, right?

This week's topic will be movies. Rather than simply list movies I'm fond of, I thought I'd partake in a movie meme I saw on Wendy Knits' blog this week. Here are the rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them on your blog for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.

I'm only doing eight, because two of the movies I picked don't have quotes listed on IMDb and I don't want to assume I'm recalling them verbatim. So, eight. :} So, here we 8 movie quotes. If you'd like to guess where they came from, leave a comment! :)

Edited 4/7/08: Since it's been a few weeks and the rest of these have gone unguessed, I thought I'd provide the answers, just because the lack of closure on this exercise is bugging me. LOL

1. "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. " Tomzgrrl guessed this one correctly: The Blues Brothers. :)

2. "Ah, good morning. Can I interest you in some nipples of Venus?" Question posed by Vianne in Chocolat. I thought for sure there'd be a Johnny Depp fan out there who might recognize this line, even if Johnny's character didn't say it. ;)

3. "Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while." Amy guessed this one correctly (I'd have been disappointed in her if she didn't! LOL) : The Princess Bride.

4. "Certainty of death, small chance of success...what are we waiting for?" Oh, come on people! Gimli, from Lord of the Rings: Return of the King?? How could no one guess this. I'm shocked!

5. "With enough courage, you can do without a reputation." Spoken by Rhett Butler, Gone with the Wind. (Sorry, but "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!" would have been way too much of a gimme.)

6. "Don't worry. Nobody dies in this story. They just get really big boo-boos." Ok...I can't fault anyone for not getting this, but it does make me laugh - the line and the movie! Spoken by the narrator in George of the Jungle. You have to admit, Brendan Frazier looks rather hot in that flick.

7. "My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on playmate of the month." Kim guessed this one correctly, as I thought she might, it being one of her favorite movies: Hunt for Red October.

8. "That is the sound of a thousand terrible things headed this way." Kim also identified this one correctly, even down to the correct episode! Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
