Tuesday's Twelve Tags #26

Last week's winner: TTT front-runner Justin, with 7 points.
The theme: Each film contains a MacGufin, in a hotly contested, hotly debated race. See last week's comments for more. (Nick/Justin)

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, the theme is worth 3 points.

1. Two cops. One is all talk. The other is all action.
2. Trust me. I'm a doctor.
3. He's About To Get Medieval On You.
4. We all make choices. What's yours?
5. She was the first of her kind. He was the last of his.
6. His love for her forced fate to change.
7. Falsely accused. Wrongly imprisoned. He fought for justice to clear his father's name.
8. Control Your Fear
9. Lose your heart and come to your senses.
10. What would you do if they destroyed your home, threatened your family. Where would you draw the line?
11. Discover the mystery behind the legend.
12. Snow covers everything...except the truth

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

Wow, these all sound really familiar
1. Rush Hour
5. Stage Beauty

Jess said...

3. A Knight's Tale?

Jess said...

12. Smilla's sense of snow

Big Mike Mendez said...

7 - In the name of the father

12 - a simple plan?

Justin said...

Good ones, Fletch:

10 is my dad's favorite movie, The Patriot

4 is the depressing, but well-acted The Last Kiss

The rest. . . no clue!

Jess said...

6. If Only (Robert Downey Jr. is awesome, Marisa Tomei is awful)

Justin said...

The great Tom Wilkinson is in all the movies so far!

Justin said...

8 is the Ghost and the Darkness

11 is Girl with a Pearl Earring

9 is Sense and Sensibility

. . .

More to come!

Justin said...

3 is actually Black Knight, thanks to the Tom Wilkinson help.

A Knight's Tale is "He will Rock you" I believe

Justin said...

It's all about the theme. . . once you get it, these things are cake! Uh oh, I'm giving away my secret to success!

2 is a film called Paper Mask

Fletch said...

Yep, that was a piece of cake. I hate doing actor ones because I think they're too easy, but I was hoping that Wilkinson was far enough down in the cast and/or immersed enough (he has a habit of being overlooked, I think) that that would slip by, at least for a short while.

Congrats again, Justin.

Justin said...

Fletch, you've created a rivalry now. With Nick's complaining, the competitive side of me is taking over. . .

The lead will get bigger. Yes.

Nick said...


I will get you next week, Justin...man!
