/ Film dialogue/Get a Life.
I now sizeable chunks of Zulu, The Vikings, The Man Who Would Be King, Kes, and Kind Hearts and Coronets. But the one which has got me so hooked that I am some way towards knowing the entire screenplay is Tombstone.
Anyone else got a favourite?
(You're a daisy if ya do....!)
At one point I developed something of a habit of watching point break.
I work in digital TV, where you often have to make do with pre-recorded content streams for testing. There are various snippets of films that I and my colleagues can quote verbatim. If I were to stand up in the office and shout "Sword, give me your sword", I can guarantee that a dozen people would reply "Sheathe your swords!"
i'll make it a little trickier:
C'est cent-six kilometres a Chicago, nous avons plien du gas, un demi-paquet fumee, c'est nuit et nous porton les lunettes....
On y va!
You got us into this quiz, motorhead, now you get us out :-)
Slightly harder one here: "Now I will kill you until you die from it".
many years ago I knew Monty Python and the Holy Grail word perfect and most of the dialogue from Repo Man.
I once denied myself the delight of seeing Dune on the big screen because it's a bit like The Rocky Horror Picture Show for me and I'd have been chucked out for shouting all that portentous dialogue out, a line in advance
"Mood? Mood is a thing for cattle, and loveplay"
I also know too much of "The Long Kiss Goodnight", and the exchange between David Thewlis and Ewen Bremner in Mike Leigh's "Naked" (it would be hard work to memorise the Johnny-and-Brian dialogue, 10 minutes of fast-paced rambling!)
If we're talking Mike Leigh I'm a pretty good Keith but I can't get my wife to do Candice Marie ( except, of course, when we sing "Going to the Zoo" together.)
Give us a clue. Please.
Saddam, Hot Shots 2?
well done there =)
One more before bed..
"What is your malfunction you fat barrel of monkey spunk".
That line makes me chuckle =)
It's not Ben Kingsley as Don Logan in "Sexy Beast" is it? I don't remember him saying "malfunction" but I do recall him calling Ray Winstone a "spunk bubble"....
I probably know more of the Once Upon A Time in the West screenplay than I do the aforementioned, as it is quite sparing and efficient.
Best bit is Cheyenne to Jill McBain
"You know, you remind me of my mother. She was the biggest whore in Alamein, and the finest woman that ever lived. Whoever my father was, for an hour or a month, must have been the happiest man"
(Lionel Stander's line follows it closely - also to Jill - "New Orleans! I had a cousin there. You know, I don't think I'd get along in a big city. It's too full of fast men and loose women, beggin' your pardon, ma'am. " )
Shawshank Redemption! Watched it just the other day.
Easy one: Why a sword, cousin? Why not a sword or an axe?
Bonus point for quoting the response to the questions.
Um ... don't you mean spoon?
Durrr. "Malfunction". Gotta be the Drill Sergeant in FMJ right?
Mcd was right. I had to cheat to get it.
I get confused with who's answering what! :-)
Of course I meant spoon! Sheepish now.
Evening all. Well done mcdougal, good guess but unlucky Blue.
Here's an easier one... "Never go up against a Sicilian when death is on the line ha ha ha ha"... *Thud*
That's only part of a very long quote but a good 'un.
Another one for Holy Grail. Also:
This is Spinal Tap
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Princess bride
On the sicilian theme, what film am I thinking about? (I was going to put a quote, but think it'd be too easy...)
Off the top of my head I'm guessing 'The Godfather'..
They haven't made a film of 'The Sicilian' yet have they?
Oliver Reed: "Talk like that could get a man's liver dropped into the dust....."
It could have been, but no, not what flashed up when the chat turned to sicilians...
Nope! Here is a quote then, "so if that's a fact tell me... Am I lying?" Bonus point for the fact.
True Romance..Walken to Hopper?
Other way about, but yes! And you are a cantaloupe!
Feck it Dude, let's go bowling.
..and a lot sadder than I thought I was.. :-( Been years since I've seen that film.
Must be John Goodman
Oops. I thought it was Princess Bride, following such pearls of wisdom as 'never get involved in a land-war in Asia'
Yes. 1987. Michael Cimino (The Deer Hunter) directed. Christophe Lambert and Barbara Sukowa starred, and a young John Turturro was in it. Richard E Grant's wife was the costumier. How I know all this without having seen the film and without having just looked it up, is utterly beyond me and is mildly troubling!
Are you saying that the fact is "you're part eggplant"? :-) Or that Sicily was invaded by the Moors?
As you wish.
The General (without the subtitles ;-)
Correct - speaking to The Dude, His Dudeness, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.
Oh! That totally passed me by.. Cheers Blue.
"Well ain't this place a geographical oddity! 2 weeks from everywhere"..
Love this film.
Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, stick it up your ass and pull the f*cking trigger 'til it goes "click."
