Tuesday's Twelve Tags #38

Last week's winner: Univarn, with a whopping 3 points. Tuesday's Twelve Tags is on life support, folks. And to think, both themes were Swayze related. I'm hurt people, really.
Theme 1: Each film featured a celebrity that died in 2009. For example, David Carradine was in Epic Movie, Karl Malden was in The Sting II. (unguessed)
Theme 2: Each film contains a character named Dalton. (unguessed)

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. Difference between dead and life
2. Get ready to take a chance on something that just might end up being the most profoundly impactful moment for humanity, for the history... of history.
3. life's a messy business.
4. Sometimes finding the truth is easier than facing it.
5. Why do women find this man irresistible?
6. What if someone looked into your future and didn't see tomorrow?
Theme value: 7 points

Group 2
7. A brutal murder. A brilliant killer. A cop who can't resist the danger
8. When the going gets tough, the tough get going
9. SeX. MurdEr. MyStery. Welcome to the party.
10. Undependable. Unpredictable. Unforgettable.
11. The most important part of a story is the ending.
12. Dive into this summer's sexiest mystery
Theme value: 3 points

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

9. eXistenZ (or however the capitals are)?

Univarn said...

11. Secret Window

beyond that, you got me good this week I don't have a clue!

bd79 said...

7 is definitely Basic Instinct.

WampaOne said...

8 is The Jewel of the Nile - the video for the song was at STOSG not long ago.


Fletch said...

Nick - nope. I have no idea why the random caps are in that tagline (that' just how I found 'em), but it's not eXistenZ.

The rest of you are in a fierce battle, a 3-way tie for first place...

Wampa! Always good to see you. I feel like Lando and you just arrived in Cloud City.

Alex said...

6 First Snow

9 Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, one of my favorite movies!

for second group's theme... is it too obvious to guess that they all have a mystery or a surprise ending of some kind? I feel like it's usually something much more detailed than that.

bd79 said...

Theme of the 2nd Group: Each heavily involves an author or the writing of a book in the plot.

Fletch said...

Alex - not a bad guess, but not it...

BD - yup. You're the clubhouse leader with 4 points.

As for the first group's theme...I might give a hint if there were more tags solved. Too early now.

bd79 said...

2 sounds like something from Contact, but didn't we already have a tag from that in a previous week?

4 sounds so freaking familiar but I can't come up with anything. Memento has jumped into my head a couple times but I don't think that's it.

Fletch said...

2 is indeed Contact. Don't think I've used it (at least not recently), but it's possible.

4 is not Memento.

Nick said...

How the heck did I not get Kiss Kiss Bang Bang? That's one of my favorite movies, too!
