Tuesday's Twelve Tags #3

We established a couple things in the last edition of TTT. First, that Nick is a filthy rotten cheater, using Google to get his answers (and even then he still missed an available one). ;) Second, I am some sort of evil mastermind, as I practically had to spell out the "immpossibly hard" theme (according to Jason) in order for someone to get it.

Just the way I like it.

Here's twelve more. 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. Get the most and you win. Sometimes there might be a theme, sometimes not. This time...there is one, and if you can guess what it is (you ought to be able to), I'll award you 3 points (less than the 5 given last time because it's easier).

1. A Comedy of Invention.
2. Suddenly, life was more than french fries, gravy and girls
3. A story about love at second sight.
4. You Will Orbit into the Fantastic Future!
5. They're not just getting rich... They're getting even.
6. You know you want it
7. Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Then again, practice makes perfect.
8. Unite and fight
9. The Rise Of A Star... The Fall Of A Legend!
10. Hell, Upside Down
11. A Hollywood Story
12. At the center of the circle is a woman ahead of her time.

As you get them right, I'll mark them as gotten and stuff. Good luck. No hints.

Sea_of_Green - 1

Nick said...

Oh, sure, make me feel dumb for missing one! :P

Though I think Dead Pan just nailed all of them. Except number 10, apparently.

But number 10 is The Poseidon Adventure. Hooray!

Fletch said...

Shane - good start.

J.D. - 4 for 4. You've got the lead.

Dead Pan - Strong work. You got three that weren't previously gotten.

Nick - I got nothing for ya. [/Probst]

3 Tags left, and one theme...anyone's game.

Dead Pan said...

numero 3 is while you were sleeping I believe actually?

Anonymous said...

6. Strange Days

Fox said...

3. Mask? That would be kinda mean, but it just popped in my head.

6. The Stuff?

Fletch said...

Shane, Dead Pan - bingo bango.

Fox - Mean, but funny, you cruel bastard.

Jason Soto said...

Number 4 is The Time Machine, the original with Rod Taylor.

Fletch said...

Indeed, Jason. All that's left is the theme, and time is running out...

Jason Soto said...

Theme: They're all films starring humans who got paid some money to appear in them and at one point or another appeared in movie theaters!

Dead Pan said...

Stumped. Do they all take place during winter at some point?
