PostSubject: LASERDISC QUIZ 7 - TAGLINE QUIZ   Sun Jun 12, 2011 3:52 am

Just for fun - here's a quick quiz about movie taglines, those bits of marketing doggerel designed to whet your cinematic appetite. We all know

"In Space No One Can Hear You Scream"

but do you know which movie said

"In Space No One Can Eat Ice Cream"?

There are no prizes (these are easy - and easy to look up) but try to have a go WITHOUT reference books or Google. See how many films you recognise from these taglines. (Many, but not all, were issued as laserdiscs.)

1. EARTH. IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED.

2. ESCAPE OR DIE FRYING.

3. TRAPPED IN TIME. SURROUNDED BY EVIL. LOW ON GAS.

4. JUST BECAUSE THEY SERVE YOU DOESN'T MEAN THEY LIKE YOU.

5. HIS STORY WILL TOUCH YOU, EVEN THOUGH HE CAN'T.

6. A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.

7. THERE ARE 3.7 TRILLION FISH IN THE OCEAN. THEY'RE LOOKING FOR ONE.

8. BE AFRAID. BE VERY AFRAID.

9. EVEN A HIT MAN DESERVES A SECOND SHOT.

10. AN ADVENTURE 65 MILLION YEARS IN THE MAKING.

11. PROTECTING THE EARTH FROM THE SCUM OF THE UNIVERSE!

12. FROM THE BROTHER OF THE DIRECTOR OF "GHOST".

13. THIS TIME IT'S WAR.

14. THE FIRST CASUALTY OF WAR IS INNOCENCE.

15. HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME, WISH I WERE HERE.

16. THE THING THAT WON'T DIE, THE NIGHTMARE THAT WON'T END.

17. THE BITCH IS BACK!

18. DOES FOR ROCK AND ROLL WHAT "THE SOUND OF MUSIC" DID FOR HILLS.

19. ON THE AIR. UNAWARE.

20. YOU'LL LAUGH. YOU'LL CRY. YOU'LL HURL.

21. THE COAST IS TOAST.

22. A LIVELY COMEDY ABOUT A GUY WHO ISN'T.

23. FIFTY MILLION PEOPLE WATCHING BUT NO ONE SAW A THING.

24. SEE OUR FAMILY. AND FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURS.

25. A TALE OF MURDER, LUST, GREED, REVENGE, AND SEAFOOD.

And now, for those who like a challenge, here are a few more, er, challenging ones. These are among my personal favourites (movies, that is, not taglines!).

26. THE YEAR IS 2024... A FUTURE YOU'LL PROBABLY LIVE TO SEE.

27. THEY WERE MEANT TO BE. BUT EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE MEANT TO BE IS NOT QUITE CLEAR.

28. ARE YOU GAME?

29. THE PERFECT GROUCH HAS MET HIS MATCH. A FIVE-YEAR-OLD BOY NAMED [---------------] .

30. BETWEEN WHAT YOU KNOW AND WHAT YOU WISH, LIES THE SECRET OF [-------------------].

31. THE GENIUS BEHIND THE MUSIC. THE MADNESS BEHIND THE MAN. THE UNTOLD LOVE STORY OF [-----------------------].

32. MAKING MOVIES CAN BE MURDER.

33. HE'S HAD TO FIGHT ALL HIS LIFE. NOW HE'S FIGHTING FOR THEIRS.

34. EARTH'S LAST BATTLE WILL BE FOUGHT IN SPACE.

35. THIS IS THE WEEKEND THEY DIDN'T PLAY GOLF.

36. INSIDE EVERY ONE OF US IS A SPECIAL TALENT WAITING TO COME OUT. THE TRICK IS FINDING IT.

There's no need to submit your answers - we all know how clever you are - but your comments are welcome. Besides, I'll post the correct titles - in a bit!
