Tuesday's Twelve Tags #6

Simply put, Justin destroyed the field last week, staying up late for my near-midnight posting and getting 9 of 12 tags before the morning came. J.D. hung tough for the other three, and Kane correctly guessed the theme (bowling) to tie for second with 3 points. But, to borrow from film classic Top Gun, remember, boys (and girls), there's no points for second place.

Here's the new dozen. 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 a theme, but it's ridiculously easy, so if you guess it, it'll only be worth 1.5 points.

1. Shoot first. Sightsee later.
2. A Woman In Trouble
3. No children. No future. No hope.
4. The saga is complete.
5. The funniest movie ever to make you cry.
6. Ready or Not.
7. Life isn't measured in minutes, but in moments
8. Too young to be square... Too tough to be shocked... Too late to be saved
9. Who's next?
10. A motion picture that celebrates the art of survival, the gift of laughter and the miracle of friendship.
11. A story about one man's search... for who knows what
12. Never judge a girl by her address

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

J.D. said...

1. In Bruges
3. Children of Men
4. Revenge of the Sith?
7. I'm guessing Benjamin Button, but I'm not 100%.

Jess said...

Crap, this was the first week I knew ANY of them, and J.D. beat me to In Bruges.

Shane said...

Is the theme that they all have a plot that somehow revolves around a child or children?

Jess said...

But I just noticed the last one is "Slums of Beverly Hills" - yes, finally!

Jess said...

And #5 - Steel Magnolias (one of my fav movies!).

Fletch said...

You are all correct so far.

Shane - technically, it was that there is either a pregnant character or childbrith in the film, but you're close enough. Winnah!

Jess said...

#8 Cry Baby
#10 Boys on the Side

Jonathan said...

6. Nine Months
9. Predator 2
11. Trees Lounge

Jonathan said...

Oops. right...

9. Suspect Zero

Fletch said...

Jess and Jonathan - All good save for the Predator 2 guess.

With 1 left, J.D.'s got at least a tie in the bag. Jess is the only one still alive...

Fletch said...

Nope. Not Suspect Zero, either.

Farmacy said...

#9 Look Who's Talking Now

Fletch said...

Haha - nope, though I almost used the first Look movie for one of these.

At least I stumped you all with something. The lesson learned? Use the most generic taglines possible - all the harder to find the answers to using Google...

Nic Cage said...

9. Son of the Mask

Nick said...

You've gotta be kidding me! I actually KNEW a handful of these without having to use any extra help (for once)... and I get here 6 hours late and everything is basically answered already.


Fletch said...

Nic - yep

Nick - yep. That'll teach you to have a life and stuff...
