Tuesday's Twelve Tags #9

Has "Guess the theme" overtaken "Guess the tagline" in T-cubed? Perhaps, and perhaps even more that that's by design - after all, no one can easily attain the answer to the theme. Anyway, after two weeks of difficult themes (one in which I stumped you all, the other in which I practically gave it away), I'm making this week's a tad easier. Good luck

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. There will always be a theme, though it's worth will vary according to how difficult I think it is. This week's theme is fairly easy, so it's worth 5 points.

1. Only their mother can tell them apart.
2. The Voice of a Generation
3. Sex. Murder. Betrayal. Everything that makes life worth living.
4. Friends are the people who let you be yourself... and never let you forget it.
5. A family on the verge of a breakdown
6. Terry Griffith is about to go where no woman has gone before.
7. To save his planet, an alien must find a woman on Earth to have his baby. There's just one problem.
8. Keep on Moppin' in the Free world.
9. Do you hate spiders? Do you really hate spiders? Well they don't like you either
10. It is not the fall that kills you
11. Everybody loved him... Everybody disappeared.
12. You can't stop the thunder.

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

Jess said...

2 - Pump up the volume

Does the theme have something to do with the soundtrack?

Fletch said...

Well, that didn't take long. Just over an hour, in fact.

All tags have been gotted. Jess has the lead with 6. Shane 3, J.D. 2, and Dreamrot 1. With a 5-point theme, it's still open, though.

Good guesses, Nick.

And Jess - I get them from IMDb, of course.

As for the theme...too early for hints. I need to hear more guesses first (or have some more time go by).

Nick said...

Theme - Each movie has a hospital scene?

Fletch said...

Ok, hint time: there's a Fletch tie to the theme (me, not the movie Fletch).

Justin said...

See, now I'm just pissed. . .

These people are just waiting for you to post this and I get home at 10 and miss out. . .

At least I can protect my first place status though. . .

All of these movies feature the great state of Arizona (home-state represent)!

Fletch said...

Correctamundo, Justin. The theme is indeed that all films are set in part or whole in Arizona.

As for your first-place status - it's not in jeopardy, but Jess remains the winner for this round. She had 6 points and you got 5 for the theme.

And you apparently just need to get an iPhone so you can play this game at any time of the day. :D
