Movie Meme *UPDATED*

Everyone is doing this movie meme. I’m assuming out of respect for my hatred of meme’s no one has tagged me with it. However, this is one that I would like to do, so I’m going to take a swing at it.

Pick out ten favorite movies, then look them up at IMDb. In the overview at the top of each movie’s page, there are “Plot Keywords,” usually five of them. (Plus more, if you click the link.) Take the first five, and post them. Then the rest of us get to play movie buff and see if we can guess them.

Well those are the official rules; I’m also going to add a quote, just to help because so far this meme has been stumping people.

UPDATE: For the ones people have correct, I've put the names of the movie after it.

1) Sideburns / Gettysburg / American Civil War / Biographical / Epic “To be a good soldier you must love the army. To be a good commander you must be able to order the death of the thing you love” Gettysburg C'mon the name was in the clues.

2)Male Nudity / Tragic Hero / Crushed Head / No Opening Credits / Brave “There's a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.” Braveheart

3) Survival Horror / Survival / Grindhouse / Exploding Head / Black Comedy “You never point a gun at anyone, mister. Scary, isn't it? Isn't it?”

4)Wuxia Fiction / War / Kiss / Smuggler / Outer Space “Oh. I thought they smelled bad on the *outside*” Empire Strikes Back

5) Expedition / Gender Clash / Satire / Beer / Camping In Wilderness “I have a lot of fantasies about being tied up and spanked. I suppose it isn't very liberated, is it? What kind of fantasies do feminists have?” Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death

6) Cult / Splatter / Disturbing / Ghoul / Survival “Good shot! OK, he's dead; let's go get 'im. That's another one for the fire.”

7) Cabin / Good Versus Evil / Cult / H.P. Lovecraft / Dark Comedy “Kill her if you can, loverboy.” Evil Dead

8) Holiday / Compassion / Diner / Existentialism / Buddhist “People like blood sausage too, people are morons.” Ground Hog Day

9) Sex With The Dead / Convenience Store Clerk / Anti Social / Disrespect / Ex Girlfriend “You know, there's a million fine looking women in the world, dude. But they don't all bring you lasagna at work. Most of 'em just cheat on you.” Clerks

10) Bayou / Lawn Mower / Coach / College / Ridicule “You can do it... you can do it all night loong!” The Waterboy

Here’s a bonus one. I’d be surprised if anyone actually gets it, or has seen it.

Bonus) Hit And Run / Neo Nazi / Topless / Explosive / Crushed Head “Well America, there you have it, Frankenstein has just been attacked by the French Air Force and he's whipped their derrieres!”

Since I wasn’t technically tagged, I don’t have to tag anyone else, and I’m not going to.

I’ll put up the answers in the extended entry later this week. That is if no one figures them out.

4 is star wars... not sure which one... Empire Strikes Back?

The only war movie I watched was Patton and none of those look like they match. Not into Horror unless it is humor, so they are out of my bailiwick. That and I had to have my hubby help me figure out the names of the ones I used. I can't even remember the names of the movies I like!!!

#10 is Waterboy! :-)

VW: 4 is indeed Empire.

Sissy: you are also correct with The Waterboy.

Oh please, like the bonus one was hard or something.

I was the one who showed you that movie for the first time, remember?

Should I post it or let the others flail about trying to figure it out?

Damn... okay I should've tagged you for this one. *grin*

is #9 Clerks?

I know there must be a zombie movie here... but I don't know zombie movies.

Grau, I know you would get it, I think you are the only other person that likes that movie. So let someone else try.

Teresa: Yep, #9 is Clerks. The sex with the dead thing is just a coincidence.

Gah....I thought you were done with the zombie references!!

Posted by: ktreva at May 20, 2007 02:47 PM

7. Army of Darkness... possibly Evil Dead II.

Posted by: That 1 Guy at May 20, 2007 03:03 PM

1. Gettysburg
2. Braveheart
5. Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death
8. Groundhog Day

The others are dead movies (and yes I know them all and have most them).

Like Grau, I'm pretty sure I know what the bonus is. Stars an actor in one of my favorite movies that I listed.

Tink you are right on all of them. Good job.

#3 - Dawn of the dead. I'm almost positive.

Survival Horror/Survival/Exploding head is what is making me think that it is dawn of the dead.
