Movie Lines


I'm having a difficult time forming a reasonable nexus between this game and literary value, but what the heck. It's fun for us movie addicts who tend to quote movie lines in everyday conversation. In this game, guess the movie that the person above has quoted. Then provide a quote from another movie and (for a little extra help) supply the genre of the movie you are quoting. Please use good judgment with the profanity and subject matter.

"Oh, what? What? That's not flying. That's falling...with style." (Children's Comedy)

I think Dottie's might be the Devil's Advocate? And I had to think about yours, kali, but possibly The Crow?

Batman, Jack Nicholas's line.

BTW it is most often misquoted.

Crime/drama/thriller

OFF TOPIC: Actually I found out that we are almost all quilty of misquoting it. We all think of it as "Luke, I am your father.", but he actually says, "No. I am your father."

In other words, kalibantre is correct.

(LOL to myself)


Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

Action/Fantasy/Adventure/Comedy


When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."


this is one of my favorite quotes of ALL TIME.

Big Trouble in Little China. How many times have you seen this movie, Mean?


"I'm here with Katherine Hepburn's mom. Tell me, why did you toss the 'blue heart of the ocean' jewel over the railing of Titanic? Did you feel bad at all letting Leo DiCaprio drown, while you were safe floating on the big door? Could you have taken turns, or were you just too afraid to freeze your big fat ass off? " (comedy)

You keep using that quote. I do not think it means what you think it means.


The Princess Bride.

If you've never read the book, you owe it to yourself to do so.


"I got news for you, pal. You ain't leading but two things right now: Jack and Sh**. And, Jack left town." Comedy/Horror


dang...I shoulda guessed april would get that one before me. Well, hers is from the second(?) Austin Powers. I think it was "The Spy Who Shagged Me." Now, you can do mines.

Dogma

OK, here's a quote from a musical that I've seen way to often.

"I'm standin' in the kitchen, carving up a chicken for dinner, minding my own business, when in storms my husband, Wilbur, in a jealous rage. "You've been screwing the milkman," he said. He was crazy, and he kept on screaming, "You've been screwing the milkman." And then he ran into my knife... he ran into my knife ten times."
