Tuesday's Twelve Tags #12

Last week's winner: Justin, with 8 points.
The theme: Each film has a dream sequence.

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. Try to resist the Google. 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. The difficulty of this week's will hinge greatly on how many of these films you've seen - could be average, could be very hard. I'll say 8 points.

1. He knew Paris was for lovers. He just didn't think they were all hers.
2. It's a Trap
3. Leave your exceptions at the door
4. His father taught him to hate. His friends taught him rage. His enemies gave him hope.
5. A comedy about getting dumped, and taking it like a man.
6. Everyone has one special thing
7. First they send in their drone... then they find their queen.
8. Life made him tough. Love made him strong. Music made him hard.
9. In search of wine. In search of women. In search of themselves.
10. Charming. Magnetic. Murderous.
11. This ain't March of the Penguins
12. To fight the enemy, she must become one of them.

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

Nick said...

Damn... I hate it when other people beat me to this stuff, especially when I actually know answers.

I'll figure out that theme, though!

Jess said...

1. 2 Days in Paris

Jess said...

4. American History X

Jess said...

6. Boogie Nights

Jess said...

Theme: The guy doesn't get the girl/guy/king?

Fletch said...

Well, you all cleaned up fast. One flick left to go with the theme, which no one has gotten yet.

Jason Soto said...

Um...Farce of the Penguins. Again. :P
-Jason

Mikey Filmmaker said...

Is the theme redemption? Also, it's Boogie Nights not Boogie Knights. Sorry, it's my favorite film. I had to say something.

Nick said...

Does the theme have to do with broken teeth?

Nick said...

Oh, more theme guesses:

- A character gets shot.
- Infidelity.
- Broken/failed relationships.

J.D. said...

Gratuitous male nudity?

Jason Soto said...

Oh. I had to double check my answer cause I wondered why you didn't give me credit for 11. Then I found out that Face of the Penguins have a different tagline.

So looking into it, I found out it's Strange Wilderness.

So yes, I used IMDb and Google for that one answer. Sorry. My bad.
-Jason

Justin said...

This one was J.D.'s to win.

Nice snag on the theme - -

Fletch said...

Mikey - I of course knew that about Boogie Nights - no idea why I wrote 'Knights' other than that I was in a hurry when I updated with the answers. Whoops.

Indeed, J.D. made for what I believe is the biggest win (widest margin) yet in this game, snagging 7 films plus the theme, which was, more specifically "films that feature full frontal male nudity."

Jason - damned cheater. ;) No, I can totally understand why you'd do that.

Nick said...

Damnit! How could I forget Jigsaw's penis?

J.D. said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I knew my encyclopedic knowledge of naked guys would pay off one day.

11. Encounters at the End of the World.

Fletch said...

Sorry, Shannon - I neglected to update the post a final time. 11 was Strange Wilderness.

Aw, oh wells! I could almost hear Herzog in my head... which is kinda freaky in it of itself.
