Tuesday's Twelve Tags #36

Last week's winner: Justin, who walked his way to the victory by getting all 12 tags forr points.
Theme 1: All of the films featured a pug (Unguessed)
Theme 2: All of the films featured a rottweiler (BD79)

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. One point per tag. Try to resist the Google. Get the most points and you win. There will always be a theme(s), though it's point worth will vary according to how difficult I think it is. Additionally, I may split the taglines into two or three groups, each with their own themes.

Group 1
1. The temperature where freedom burns!
2. A place for dreams. A place for heartbreak. A place to pick up the pieces.
3. You don't need eyes to see.
4. Between Heaven and Hell There's Always Hollywood!
5. Roxanne drives her mother crazy. Maurice never speaks to his niece. Cynthia has a shock for her family. Monica can't talk to her husband. Hortense has never met her mother.
6. Music was his passion. Survival was his masterpiece.
Theme value: 4.5 points

Group 2
7. When he pours, he reigns.
8. The Enterprise is back. This time, have they gone too far?
9. Five Suspects. Two Lovers. One Killer. Nothing is what it seems... except murder.
10. What most people call hell, he calls home.
11. On July 2nd, it's a whole new west.
12. He needed to trust her with his secret. She had to trust him with her life.
Theme value: 7.5 points

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

A few hits, a few misses. I ain't givin' you number 8...not yet, at least.

Justin said...

Let's go:

6. The Pianist
7. Evan Almighty?
9. Clue?

More after I get some homework done!

Justin said...

Changed my mind on 7 - it's one of my all-time faves, a true guilty pleasure:

Cocktail!

And is 3 Scent of a Woman?

And for the Star Trek one, it sounds like it would be Final Frontier because that's pretty damn far if you ask me. . .

This is a freaking impossible list, Fletch. The only other guess I can even come up with is What Dreams May Come for #2.

I'm trying to think of every Hollywood movie under the sun for 4. The Player was the first that comes to mind, but that doesn't really match the tagline.

Fletch said...

BD - I dunno, I'm not really seeing what makes this list any harder than any other week. But I guess I don't pay that much attention to the difficulty of the tags themselves, unless they're super generic, like "Based on a true story."

Don't know, nothing jumps out at me.

I do have a new guess though. I think 4 is Barton Fink.
