Tuesday's Twelve Tags #23

Last week's winner: Nick, with 9 points.
The theme: Each film features the song "Respect" by Aretha Franklin in it. (Nick)

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. This week's theme is fairly easy, so it's only worth 4 points.

1. Makes Ben Hur look like an Epic
2. Four perfect killers. One perfect crime. Now all they have to fear is each other.
3. They're not really criminals, but everybody's got to have a dream.
4. Ever wanted to be someone else? Now you can. [Editor's note: Yeah, I know - pretty sure this has been used a few times...]
5. It's not the same old Thing
6. This time it's hiding in the most terrifying place of all
7. Get a grip on yourself
8. When good luck is a long shot, you have to hedge your bets.
9. In the Interest of Civilization... Conform.
10. Breaking up is hard
11. You're Never Alone.
12. Who's hunting who?

As you get them right, I'll mark them as gotten and stuff. Good luck.

A 4 pointer? I'm so not gonna win this week. Damnit.

Jess said...

1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Fletch said...

That's cause you don't use the Google. Take pride in that. :)

You've got a shot. Once some of the films start getting named, I think it'll be pretty obvious.

2. Resevoir Dogs

Jess said...

5. The Addams Family
9. Human Nature

Fletch said...

4-for-4, Jess!

Jess said...

3. Bottle Rocket
8. Sydney (This one's been used before!)

Jess said...

4. Being John Malkovich has indeed been used before!

Jess said...

12. Mouse Hunt

That's all I can get....and I never get the theme, you're just too tricky for me Fletch.

Nick said...

The only theme I can think of is that each has an actor/actress from a popular TV show (current or past).

Fletch said...

Solid work, Jess. You've guaranteed at least a tie for first.

I'm tricky? Yay! ;)


No dice, Nick.

Nick said...

I must say, I am tempted to cheat, but I will beat Justin fairly.

*sob*

Jess said...

6. Alien 3

Theme - All of the directors or writers went on to be even more famous - these aren't usually the first ones, but these are major people later. Close?

Fletch said...

Well, that's as close as anyone's gonna come to getting it, so I'm giving it to you, Jess. You said they "aren't usually the first ones," but they are.

The official wording goes something like this: Each film is its director's first feature.
