Tuesday's Twelve Tags #37

Just barely getting this in before midnight AZ time...

Last week's winner: Uh, it was a tie between Justin and Nick, who each got a whopping 2.5 points. Guess the bloom is off the rose, eh?
Theme 1: All of the films were winners of the Cannes Film Festival's top prize, the Palme D'Or. (unguessed)
Theme 2: All of the films were winners of the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka The Razzies Worst Picture award. (unguessed)

In other words, I totally kicked everyone's ass last week. Well, that or no one cared enough.

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. We Know It's Big. We Measured.
2. You'll root for them all...but you'll never guess who wins
3. The con is on... place your bets!
4. Love Is In The Hair
5. Life is one long insane trip. Some people just have better directions
6. The Villain. Even Mother Teresa wanted him dead.
Theme value: 5 points

Group 2
7. Behind Every Great Man Is A Woman... Wishing He'd Get The Hell Out Of Her Way.
8. Keeping up an image can be a full time job
9. Like new, great looking and fully loaded with laughs.
10. The war's not over until the last man comes home.
11. The dancing's over. Now it gets dirty.
12. It looked like the perfect bank robbery. But you can't judge a crime by its cover.
Theme value: 10 points (!)

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

Justin - 11.5
Nick - 6
Jess - 4
BD79 - 3.5
J.D. - 2.5
Shane, Jason Soto - 2
Sea_of_Green, Kyle, Nic Cage - 1
Dead Pan - .5

Correct answers so far:
Group 1
1. Epic Movie (Univarn)
5. Donnie Darko (Alex)

Group 2
10. Missing in Action (Univarn)
11. Road House (Alex)
12. Inside Man (Univarn)

3 people have chosen wisely: on "Tuesday's Twelve Tags #37"

First time trying this so um yeah lol, I'm pretty sure I know three of them:

1. Epic Movie (in my defense the only reason I know this is because I put it on my worst taglines of all time).

10. Missing in Action

12. Inside Man

Hope those are right. Surprising how easy to forgot taglines are!
