The Great Movie Meme

Shamelessly lifted from Vanessa and Candy. I couldn't resist.

Here are the meme rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. GUESSERS: NO GOOGLING/using IMDB search functions.
6. One movie guess per blogger. Give people a chance to guess before you steal all of the awesome!
7. Put your guesses in the comments.

I'm with Candy on figuring out which ones to use. It was more difficult than I thought it would be. I ended up going to the DVD shelves and choosing the titles from there.

1. "Don't forget to kill Philip!" Shaun of the Dead, guessed by Skeeter.

2. "You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha..." The Princess Bride, guessed by Julie.

3. "See this acorn? I'll throw it at you and turn you to stone!" Willow, guessed by Tina's husband. :)

4. "Why any kid would want to be an orphan is beyond me." Annie, guessed by Tara.

5. "Lesbian? Her birthday's in March. I thought she was a Pisces." Bend It Like Beckham, guessed by another Tara.

6. "You mistake me, my dear. I have the utmost respect for your nerves. They've been my constant companion these twenty years." Pride and Prejudice, guessed by PEZmama.

7. "You wear black 'cause you can't find anything else to wear? You found your sound 'cause you can't play no better? You just tried to kiss me because "it just happened?" You should try take credit for something every once in a while, John." Walk the Line, guessed by Linda.

8. "Well, having an encounter with a three thousand year old walking, talking corpse does tend to convert one." The Mummy, guessed by AJB.

9. "A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they are not dead, really. They're just backing away from life. *Reach* out. Take a *chance*. Get *hurt* even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room."

10. "Well "Sinead O'Rebellion." Shock me shock me shock me with that deviant behavior." Empire Records, guessed by Heather

So there ya go! I love trivia stuff like this! Have fun!

Well, I know the two most obvious:
2 and 6.

So I will go with 6. Mr. Bennett says that in "Pride and Prejudice." (Both versions)

I know the same ones as Pezmama (and I thought for sure I would know more!). So I'll take #2 and say Princess Bride because that was the easy one.

3. Willow

Give credit to my husband.
I really feel like I know #7, just can't say the name of the movie!
