This Open Thread Is Going to the Movies

I’m keeping it short and sweet tonight.  Do you know which movies spawned these taglines?

  1. Makes Ben Hur look like an epic.
  2. A different set of jaws.
  3. All it takes is a little Confidence.
  4. In space, no one can hear you scream
  5. They’ll never get caught. They’re on a mission from God.
  6. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
  7. It’s time for the odd to get even.
  8. There can be only one.
  9. One dream. Four Jamaicans. Twenty below zero.
  10. You won’t know the facts until you’ve seen the fiction.
  11. You know the name. You know the number.
  12. Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe!
  13. Are you in or out?

I suspect this tells you a lot about me and my taste in movies.  I love light, fun movies.  I’ll watch emotional dramas, but if I have the choice I’ll always choose something fun over a film that makes me think.  What about you?  Do you look for self-improvement or escapism in your movie theaters?

Yeah, I watched Revenge of the Nerds not too long ago and I remember thinking that, if I were Betty, I would have punched Lewis in the crotch and reported him to the police.  Apparently the message they are trying to send to underdogs is that a girl will forgive you for spying, spreading naked pictures of her around and tricking her into having sex as long as you are really good in bed.

I’m not even going to bother to try and and guess these, since I’m bad at movies.

I generally watch movies to escape or to learn new things, which make an odd combination, I know. If I’m not watching some quirky French indie fantasy film, then I’m watching a documentary on cow stomachs.

No, really.

For me, escapism is fantasy, sci-fi, literary historical works, and EVERY SINGLE REMAKE OF A BOOK BY THE BBC EVER.
