J.D. said...

1. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid! Random, but I knew that almost immediately.
10. A History of Violence?

Nick said...

Well crap... the majority of the ones I knew have been taken.

6. Son In Law
8. X-Men

Fletch said...

Great job so far by all. S_o_G has the lead with one tag and the theme left, with 5 points.

However, S_o_G also has my "Google Spidey sense" on tingle after getting Death Wish III, though - that was the bear trap of the group; after all, it's not impossible that someone would be a fan or be able to deduce what it was...but I'm just projecting my knowledge onto all of you and wondering why anyone would know that one. Keep in mind, Google Spidey sense is only on tingle - nothing crazy here...

No hint guesses just yet?

Nick said...

Fletch: I actually enjoyed (at least in campiness) Death Wish and Death Wish II. But I didn't even know there WAS a Death Wish III. Huh...

As for theme... my best guess is that each has a character that is ex-military.

Justin said...

3 is Blood Simple by the Coens. . .

Now for that theme. . .

Hints yet?

Fletch said...

Good deal, Justin. You're just in time (and earlier, I see) to try for the theme.

First hint: think action, not actors.

Jason Soto said...

Theme: A character does one thing which effects everything that happens from that point on in the movie.

Sea_of_Green said...

>>...but I'm just projecting my knowledge onto all of you and wondering why anyone would know that one.<<

Actually, my brother is a huge Charles Bronson fan and subjected Mr. Sea and I to that film not to long ago -- primarily for laughs. ;-) It was the same night we were also subjected to Kingdom of the Spiders -- because Bro's other god is William Shatner.

Theme? I have no idea.

Shane said...

Theme: they all have character(s) hiding/running from the law

Nick said...

Each has a character that goes on vigilante justice?

Fletch said...

That's quite the coincidence, S_o_G.

Naw, just kidding. My heart goes out to you and Mr. S_o_G for having to watch that...

I should have made this theme worth more. Methinks it might be harder than I originally intended. Here's a big hint: the action occurs many times in Idiocracy.

Nick said...

Of course... the hint is geared towards the movie I *haven't* seen.

Shane said...

They all have somebody being arrested.

Nick said...

Shane: As far as I'm aware, though... nobody is arrested in 'Taken'. Everybody just dies horrible, horrible deaths :P .

Shane said...

Hmmm, I think you are correct. I was so dissappointed with that movie that I've tried to blank it from my mind.

Jason Soto said...

They each have a running joke/line of dialouge?
-Jason

Frank the Tank said...

The theme is they are all movies that would've been better with a Weird Al Yankovic cameo.

Shane said...

Does somebody get slapped in all the movies?

Fletch said...

Frank - well, that's a bit too obvious, though, isn't it? Weird Al = cinematic gold.

Shane - you're warm. Very warm...

Shane said...

Bitch Slapped?

Shane said...

Scratch my Bitch Slap idea. They all have somebody getting kicked in the crotch.

Fletch said...

Winner winner chicken dinner. Shane climbs in the standings.

Nick said...

somebody getting kicked in the crotch? I feel that's too broad for a theme :P .
