Let's try something different...which is also something normal...smiley - erm...you know what I mean... smiley - smiley

You can use quotes, situations, trivia, whatever, but it has to be about films/movies...(name the film/name the actor/director/etc) The person that has the correct answer starts the next question. Anyone game?

Here's an easy one to get the ball rolling...

"When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep... and you're never really awake."

Name the film...

Here's one that's slightly more obscure. But a great film. If you like comedies, then you should watch this one...a great classic Romantic Comedy...(clue)

"oh look! I was born on the side of a hill!"

Name the film...

I know it is cheating, but google suggests that the movie is "Bringing up Baby" starring Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and a dog named Asta.

In the chapter "the Lonely Grave of Paula Schulz," there are a few sequences where the filming differs from from the rest of the movie. What is that difference (and no, it is not black and white; this technique is unique in the film).

(is that from Kill Bill 2 smiley - erm?)


Guess the film...

Post 9

...Shrillian...

yes...it's Kill Bill 2...but I can't think of it...

how about a hint? what part in the chapter? Or is it throughout the entire chapter? All I can think of is the scene when she's busting through the grave...but I can't think of anything drastically different...

Sorry, my bad, it is from Kill Bill 2. Thought I had put that tiny bit of not unimportant info it, but I guess I did not. (That's what you get for preparing breakfast and being on hootoo simultaneously...)

So here is a hint. It is about the camera work as the Bride wakes up on the back of Budd's pick-up truck.

Ok, out of sheer impatience, I will tell you.

For a few minutes the pictures were in 3x4 format, as opposed to the normal wide-screen (16x9?) ratio. Tarantino used this to create a claustrophobic feeling, seeing as... SPOILER ahead


SPOILER

the Bride is about to be buried alive.


SPOILER OVER.


So maybe you had better post the next question smiley - winkeye

Ahhh, I was probably too busy feeling claustrophobic to notice smiley - laugh

Go on, give it another shot...just remember that, as far as I'm concerned...the wheel is spinning...but the hamster's daed...smiley - roflsmiley - rofl


Guess the film...

Yelbakk

Ok, 'nother shot then...

In the same movie, the Bride says something along the lines of

"Like most men who never knew their fathers, Bill collected *****"

What does she say Bill collected?


Y.

...Shrillian...

father figures?

That's RIGHT!

So, do you get to post the next question, then?

...Shrillian...

Woohoo!!! smiley - wow

A relatively easy one as it's 3:06am and I'm about to head off for bed...

What's the film that "Last Man Standing" was based on? (ie. The original of this remake)


Guess the film...

Post 17

Yelbakk

Sorry, I have no idea. I would guess some kind of Western?

Y.

No actually.

Hint: Japanese

Japanese Movies? Totally out of my depth there. Unless it be Shogun smiley - grr.

Nbcdnzr, the dragon was slain, and there was much rejoicing

My guess is that it is some Akira Kurosawa film. I'm gonna go with Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai).
