  • Movie Quote Quiz #8 (with a prize!)

    3

    WINNER UPDATE: Surprisingly few entries. Apparently this was a little bit harder than I thought. But hey, that’s what makes it a contest I suppose. Our winner correctly guessed four of the five quotes – strangely getting them all but #2. So congratulations to Corey Pierce of Toronto, Ontario who wins a free copy of Rip! A Remix Manifesto for his efforts. You’ll find the answers to the quotes in the now open comment section.

    It just dawned on me that it’s been a while since we’ve had any kind of contest or quiz around here. Probably because you plebeians couldn’t even answer #5 on the last quiz after almost a week – even knowing who is speaking the line! So I’ve put together another audio clip quiz this afternoon complete with a giveaway thanks to Mike Rot. In theory the clips should get increasingly difficult as you progress through the quotes 1-5.

    For your chance to win a free DVD copy of Rip! A Remix Manifesto (Rot’s review), just name the movie each clip below is from and email me your answers. The submissions received with the most correct answers will be put into a hat and a winner drawn at random. Contest ends THIS SUNDAY evening (July 19th) at 10pm EST and winner announced Monday morning.

    Comments are closed for this contest. You must email the answers to Andrew. You can submit answers as many times as you like, but only your last entry will be counted (in other words you can change your mind if ever you feel like it). Depending on what kind of submissions I get, I may or may not throw a couple of hints into the comments below throughout the week.

    Good luck!

    Quote#1:

    HINT #1: 80′s Fantasy

    Quote#2:

    HINT #1: The wind sound is because the speaker is on an airplane.

    Quote#3:

    HINT #1: Criminally underseen film of 2000. The voice is pretty recognizable. That should be enough.

    Quote#4:

    HINT #1: Listen to the crowd carefully. They’re actually chanting the name of the movie.

    Quote#5:

    HINT #1: The speaker is originally from my home town – and still has a home here.

  • Movie Quote Quiz #7

    Alright smart-asses, I promised I’d be back with something a little more challenging. If you have to use the IMDb, then so be it. Just be sure to write to your significant other to tell them that not only are you unwise, but also a coward. Just click the icons below and take a listen to each of the the mp3s and then guess which movie you’re hearing. In theory they should get more difficult as you move through quotes 1-5.

    Place your answers in the comment section and good luck!

  • Movie Quote Quiz #5

    Alrighty. We’re trying something new for the movie quote quiz this morning. Instead of simply reading the quote, you now get a little bit of context and voice recognition to help you out (hence, much easier). Take a listen to the mp3s below and try to guess which movie the quote is from. In theory they should get more difficult as you move through quotes 1-5.

    Place your answers in the comment section and good luck!

  • Movie Quote Quiz #4

    15

    We’re back with round 4. The RULES are really difficult, so pay attention: guess the movie the quote is from and win the respect of all your peers. If you can name the actor and/or character you get extra street cred. And because it’s Friday, unlike the New York Times crossword puzzle, these should be relatively easy.

    Good luck and quit using the IMDb you wuss!

    1) “You see this jacket I’m wearing? You can have it. Cause I don’t really need it anymore. Because I am cloaked in failure!”

    2) “Bitch, what you don’t know about me I can just about squeeze in the Grand fucking Canyon. Did you know I always wanted to be a dancer in Vegas?”

    3) “Ooooh you wicked, wicked monkey!”

    4) “We used to come here for school retreat. We would swim to that island every day. I love the water. We used to lie out on the sand and let the sun dry us and try to guess the names of the birds singing.”

    5) “Thanks for finding my daughter’s killer, [name]. If only you’d been a little faster.”

  • Classic Movie Quiz III

    10

    Presenting round three of the classic movie quiz. See how many of these ten you can get. As with the previous quizzes, I’ve tried to make a few of them tough to figure out.

    Best of luck.

    1). “We have now what we have always needed, real partnership with the government.”

    2). “I’m a strong tree with branches for many birds.”

    3). “Ernest Hemingway once wrote, ‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for’ I agree with the second part.”

    4). “Politicians, ugly buildings, and whores all get respectable if they last long enough.”

    5). “There was a demon that lived in the air.”

    6). “Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee of Thy great goodness to restrain this immoderate weather with which we have had to contend.”

    7). “Do you have the slightest idea what a moral and ethical principle is?”

    8). “Twelve days of Christmas! One day of Christmas is loathsome enough!”

    9). “Everything’s getting worse. Worse people, worse machines, worse wars… and worse weather. I’m glad I will soon be dead.”

    10). “We want to hurt no-one. We’re here for the bank’s money, not your money.”

  • Classic Movie Quote Quiz

    29

    Taking a page out of Andrew’s book (OK…I flat out stole his idea), I present yet another movie quote quiz. This time, however, there are ten quotes, and each is from a classic film (or, at the very least, films that many agree have achieved that status). Try to name as many of the films as you can.

    Some are fairly simple, but I’ve thrown a few in that might stump you as well.

    Good luck.

    1). “You could find a lover boy on every damn corner in town. It don’t make a damn to them whether you’re waitin’ on tables or pickin’ cotton, but it does make a damn to me”.

    2). “Don’t overcook it. You overcook it, it’s no good. It defeats its own purpose.”

    3). “I shall remember this moment: the silence, the twilight, the bowl of strawberries, the bowl of milk. Your faces in the evening light.”

    4). “Some day this country’s gonna be a fine, good place to be. Maybe it needs our bones in the ground before that time can come.”

    5). “Unpleasant? Strange. I’ve been told I have a very winning personality. The very best shoe clerk the store ever had.”

    6). “She was fifteen years old, going on thirty-five, Doc, and she told me she was eighteen”

    7). “Well, go on, do me in you bastard cowards! I don’t want to live anyway, not in a stinking world like this!”

    8). “How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can’t even trust his own pants.”

    9). “On board every flight, there’s one stewardess you long to seduce.”

    10). You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that… but you have no right to judge me.”

  • Movie Quote Quiz #3

    16

    We’re back with round 3. The RULES are really difficult, so pay attention: guess the movie the quote is from and win the respect of all your peers. If you can name the actor and/or character you get extra street cred. Oh, and in theory the quotes will get progressively harder from 1 through 5.

    Good luck and no using IMDb you wuss!

    1) “Hey, [NAME], let me ask you something. What sets off the metal detectors first? The lead in your ass or the shit in your brains?”

    2) “You shoot off a guy’s head with his pants down, believe me, Texas ain’t the place you want to get caught.”

    3) “The ‘big Red dog’ is diggin’ in our backyard, and we are justified in shooting him!”

    4) “Yo, so check out my new move. I call it ‘the Stranger.’ What I do is, I sit on my hand for, like, 15, 20 minutes, until it goes numb. No feeling at all. And then I rub one out.”

    5) “Could you take the car out of neutral? We just got passed by a street sweeper.”

  • Movie Quote Quiz #2

    26

    Here is episode 2 of a feature that is fun and interactive and easy to post. This likely won’t be a daily post here in the third row but you’ll see it pop up a couple times a week. RULES: guess the movie the quote is from and for extra street cred, name the CHARACTER (not the actor). Oh, and in theory the quotes are get progressively harder from 1 through 5.

    Good luck – no cheating!

    1) “Guys? We’re dodging diamonds the size of Cape Cod, so bear with me. Not exactly nimble here.”

    2) “The ladies ever tell you that you look like a fucking optical illusion?”

    3) “Already I had a bad feeling about the boat trip night as soon as I saw [NAME]. He was all coked up so much that his nostrils were red and swolen. Bad start man, bad start.”

    4) “Here you go. The killer’s a literature professor. He cuts off little chunks from his victims’ bodies until they die. He calls himself “the deconstructionist”.

    5) “In the shape that he’s in, you could stand him up in the garage next to the snow shovels and he’d be all right.”
