Tuesday's Twelve Tags #29

Last week's winner: BD79, with 8 points.
The theme: Each film takes place over the span of a single day (or less). (BD79)

Ok, I'm in a hurry, but I wanted to get this done somewhat on time. As such, the theme is pretty easy (see below for value). Here goes nothing...

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, it's worth 3 points.

1. Miracles do happen
2. His news is bigger than your news.
3. An irresistibly charming comedy!
4. You know the name. You know the number.
5. Prepare to be blown out of the water.
6. Invisible. Silent. Stolen.
7. Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are rape, ultra-violence and Beethoven.
8. Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize Winning Story.
9. Temptation is bliss
10. No Laws. No Limits. One Rule. Never Fall In Love.
11. It's a strange world.
12. Where does a mother end and a daughter begin?

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

1. Green Mile or Miracle
2. Anchorman, definitely
4. A Bond movie, probably. A newer one? Let's try either Casino Royale or Goldeneye since those were both new versions
5. Waterworld? Pirates of the Caribbean? Master and Commander?
7. A Clockwork Orange. . . my library strikes again!
8. Color Purple
10. Moulin Rouge, definitely

Its a start!!! My lead will increase!

5. I'm going for Crimson Tide here against Justin's Waterworld simply b/c there seems to be a color theme going on here.

11. The Blue Planet??

Justin said...

Holy crap, he's right. . . all the titles have a color in them! I completely overlooked that!

In that case. . .

3 is a comedy called Green Card

9 is Into the Blue

11 is Blue Velvet, I believe (man, once those themes come out, it's much easier!)

Fletch said...

Yes, Justin - your lead surely did increase. Quick work there.

Fox, good job on the theme. I knew it'd be fairly easy, but I tried to disguise it with Moulin Rouge and lesser colors like "Golden" and "Burgundy."

Speaking of GoldenEye (and POTC), I gave the points for those to Paul. Not that it mattered much in the long run, but I must discourage the multiple movie guesses for one tag. Pick one and hope it's right. :D
