Tuesday's Twelve Tags #4

A couple firsts for this young feature last week (yeah, I know today's Wednesday...just hop into your mental Delorean and pretend Doc needs help yesterday). First, we finished with a tie, as J.D. and Dead Pan each got four right, with the remaining four spread out amongst a couple other folks. Second, I stumped you all with the theme. Here were the movies again: The Hudsucker Proxy, Diner, While You Were Sleeping, The Time Machine, Trading Places, Strange Days, Entrapment, Assault on Precinct 13, Velvet Goldmine, The Poseidon Adventure, Sunset Boulevard, and Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle. The theme? They all contain a New Year's Eve scene! C'mon, Dwellers! I think I would have gotten that, and I've only seen about half of those.

Anyway, here's twelve more. The rules are simple: - I'm going to give you a dozen taglines, all you have to do is name as many flicks that they belong to as you can. Get the most and you win. Sometimes there might be a theme, sometimes not. This time...there is NOT a theme.

1. It Will Take You A Million Light Years From Home
2. Your time will come...
3. Share it with someone you love.
4. Life, liberty, money and the pursuit of happiness. She's gotta have it.
5. Some lines aren't meant to be crossed...
6. Opposites attract.
7. A terrifying evil has been unleashed. And five strangers are our only hope to stop it.
8. Coming to a screen bigger than your TV.
9. Failure is not an option.
10. Yoo-Hoo, I'll make ya famous!
11. Get a little savage.
12. The good news is, Jonathan's having his first affair. The bad news is, she's his roommate's mother!

As you get them right, I'll mark them as gotten and stuff. Good luck. No hints.

Standings
Sea_of_Green - 1
Justin - 1
Dead Pan, J.D. - .5

Correct answers so far:

1. Stargate (Rachel)
2. The Island (Rachel)
3. Life (Justin)
4. Citizen Ruth (Jason Soto)
5. Havoc (Nick)
6. Out of Sight (Justin)
7. From Dusk Till Dawn (Rachel)
8. Beavis and Butthead Do America (steel11kane)
9. G.I. Jane (Justin)
10. Young Guns 2 (steel11kane)
11. Jungle 2 Jungle (Nick)
12. Class (Nick)

3-way tie between Rachel, Justin and Nick right now for the win, and with no theme to get, I've deemed that if one of them can get the answer to the last Stained Glass Cinema (#19), they'll get the win here, too. If that doesn't work out, I'll think of something else...

#8 is Beavis & Butthead Do America

steel11kane said...

#10 is from Young Guns II, I think it's the sequel.

Rachel said...

1. Stargate
2. The Island
7. From Dusk Till Dawn

steel11kane said...

#9 is just a guess - but Apollo 13?

That's all I got for now.

Fletch said...

All correct so far.

Fletch said...

Scratch that - Kane, you posted your guess right as I was posting that. #9 is not Apollo 13.

Nick said...

1. Stargate
5. Havoc
7. From Dusk Til Dawn
9. The Substitute 4
11. Jungle 2 Jungle
12. Class

Nick said...

Damn you Rachel!

Fletch said...

How the heck did you know Class, Nick?

Jason Soto said...

I didn't read the comments so I'm just gonna name them all. If they're repeats, whatever.

1. Stargate
3. Mahogany
4. Citizin Ruth
5. Havoc
7. From Dusk Till Dawn
8. Beavis and Butt-Head Do America
9. Apollo 13
10. Young Guns 2
11. Jungle 2 Jungle
12. Class

I should get at LEAST 1
-Jason

Fletch said...

You're right, Jason, you should. And you did. You got exactly one.

Though you did spell 'citizen' wrong...

Justin said...

6. Out of Sight (which I watched again two nights ago and it is still so good!)

Justin said...

And is 9 G.I. Jane?

Rachel said...

Sorry Nick, but someone's got to represent Fletch's female readers!

Fletch said...

Justin comes in and sweeps up the last three just like that. Nice work, and hell yeah Out of Sight is still damn good. One of my top 20, if I recall correctly.

I resenble that remark, Rachel. I have scads of female readers! Speak up, ladies! Uh, ladies? ;)

Hmm...looks like we currently have a three-way tie between Rachel, Nick and Justin, and since I had no theme, that'll be it. But I just can't have that. Tell you what - whichever of you can get the answer to the last Stained Glass Cinema (#19) will get the win here as well.

Don't worry if you have trouble with those. I'll give hints...

Nick, this is your time to shine!

Justin said...

Yeah, I'm stumped on that stained glass. . .

Justin said...

I'm pretty sure I have the film from the hint, though

Nick said...

What? A three-way with Rachel? FINALLY! I HAVE BEEN WAIT.... wait... oh...

*re-reads Fletch's comment*

Uh...

<.<
>.>

*whistles and walks away*
*goes to the Stained Glass cinema comments to try and figure that out*

Rachel said...

I am flattered by your enthusiasm, Nick (my self-esteem needed the boost), but I don't think my husband would've appreciated it too much.

Nick said...

Hey... It *did* say a 'three-way' after all :P

Fletch said...

Justin, if you have the film what are you waiting for? Let's hear it (in those comments).

Pretty sure I don't want to touch Threewaygate with a 10-foot pole. :D

Justin said...

I meant the film you gave us as a hint haha. . . the crappy sci-fi one. But after looking through what the stars of that movie have done, I think I might be wrong.

Fletch said...

You probably had it, Justin. Use the force...

Fletch said...

Ok, Wendymoon (female reader!) just got the answer to the SGC.

So...
Hmmm...

First one of the tied persons to comment back to this wins.

Rachel said...

No!!! My stupid clients just had to get their stupid powers of attorney done right then.

Fletch said...

Sorry, Rachel and Nick. I was thinking of all these different things I could ask the three of you to answer/do, but then I figured that there were only so many hoops I could ask you to jump through for this.

Glad to see that I might've been able to, though...

Congrats, Justin.
