Game #200: Action Movies

#1 Post by franktangredi » Mon Apr 27, 2020 7:17 am

Game #200: Action Movies

Identify the 100 movies in the clues below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, match them into 60 pairs according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself.

20 movies will be used twice, each time in a different capacity.

1. The sight of actor Justus D. Barnes at the end of this short film made an indelible impression on audiences – and on film history.

2. “Fraulein, is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you intend on leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of indigestion?”

3. This romantic film was based on a hit Broadway play, but they changed the title – perhaps because they didn’t think the word ‘Cuckoo’ sounded very romantic. (They also made the heroine a lot nicer.)

4. “Please die, my love... die, die now my darling!”

5. Based on a play written more than 300 years earlier, this film was originally dedicated to “the Commandos and Airborne Troops of Great Britain the spirit of whose ancestors it has been humbly attempted to recapture."

6. “You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned. Look around you. Did you think these people made a plan to sleep in the sports hall with you? But here we are now, sleeping together on the floor. So, there's no need for a plan. You can't go wrong with no plans. We don't need to make a plan for anything. It doesn't matter what will happen next. Even if the country gets destroyed or sold out, nobody cares. Got it?”

7. This wartime propaganda movie began filming on March 23, 1942 – exactly three months after the real-life battle it depicted.

8. “Alone: bad. Friend: good!”

9. Nominated for a record twelve Razzies, this movie proceeded to win in every category.

10. “You're probably wondering where you are. I'll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room that you die in. Up until now, you've simply sat in the shadows watching others live out their lives. But what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror? Now I see you as a strange mix of someone angry, yet apathetic. But mostly just pathetic. So are you going to watch yourself die here today, Adam, or do something about it?”

11. The titular star of this, his last film, had spent seven years as a regular on Petticoat Junction; in the sequels, his role was taken over by his daughter.

12. “I want to be near you. I want you to hold me. Oh! Hold me closer! Closer! Closer!”
“If I hold you any closer, I'll be in back of you!”

13. The hit song from this movie brought a popular American singing group their first #1 hit in 22 years – and their last ever.

14. “Dog pile on the rabbit! Dog pile on the rabbit! Dog pile on the rabbit!”

15. CLINT OUT WEST, PART ONE: This 1968 Western brought Clint Eastwood his first leading role in a Hollywood film.

16. “For you, it's a crusade. For me, it's a job.”
“You're Jewish. They hate you. Doesn't that piss you off? Why are you acting like you don't got skin in the game?”

17. The most uncomfortable moments in this movie included a scene in which a wife catches her husband masturbating with a pair of her panties on his head while watching online pornography, and a scene in which a child molester castrates himself with a kitchen knife. And how is your day going?

18. “As you see her, two years later, I wonder if you realize something. I wonder if you understand that all of us - Dolores, me, the children who survived, the children who didn't - that we're all citizens of a different town now. A place with its own special rules and its own special laws.”

19. An actor best known for playing Barbara Stanwyck’s son on television had his one major movie lead in this film set in a mental hospital.

20. “So what would Brian Boitano do if he were here today?/I'm sure he'd kick an ass or two/That's what Brian Boitano'd do!”

21. The subject of this Oscar-nominated 2018 documentary celebrated her 87th birthday last month.

22. “You're soft. You should have let 'em kill me, 'cause I'm gonna kill you. I'll catch up with ya. I don't know when, but I'll catch up. Every time you turn around, expect to see me, 'cause one time you'll turn around and I'll be there. I'm gonna kill ya, Matt.”

23. Two years before this Danish movie won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, an adaptation of a work by the same author won the Oscar for Best Picture.

24. “I know that by coming here, I saved the lives of these 22 people, but that isn't why I'm here. I don't care anything about saving them. They're murderers. I know the law says they're not because I'm still alive, but that's not their fault.”

25. After an incident on the set of this film, the Martin Guitar Museum announced that it would no longer be loaning out any of its collection.

26. “BIG NO NO! BIG NO NO! Sex equals death, okay?”

27. This film – whose title translates as Song of the Little Road – did for it’s country’s cinema what Rashomon did for Japan’s.

28. “We should have stuck with the old ways. Raising cattle for our feed. Where's the life in that?”
“Humans are our cattle.”
“Humans are our prey. We should feed on them, like we've always done. Screw all this ‘channel your energies’ crap.”

29. In this 2015 musical biopic, the top-billed actor played his own father.

30. “What happened today was just the beginning. We're gonna lose this war.”
“Come on. You really think so? Us?”
“We been kicking other people’s asses for so long, I figured it's time we got ours kicked.”

31. The actor who played the lead in the hit TV series on which this film was based made a cameo appearance as the character he played on his other hit TV series.

32. “I have to warn you, I've heard relationships based on intense experiences never work.”

“Whatever you say, ma'am.

33. This movie is a fictionalized account of the 1898 hunt for the Tsavo Man-Eaters.

34. “She borrows the will of the ball.”

35. The director of this graphically violent 1980 film was charged with murder based on rumors that several people were killed during filming. (They weren’t.)

36. “The KGB is here. I recognize two agents.”
“The ones dressed as Texans?”
“No. The ones dressed as Arabs. The ones dressed as Texans are Arab agents. I also recognize two guys from Turkish intelligence.”
“Which ones? The ones in the Hawaiian shirts?”
“No, the Bermuda shorts. The ones in the Hawaiian shirts are tourists.”

37. Let us now return to the Documentary and Experimental Film class I took back in 1975 … and to this 1946 classic in which a woman falls asleep in a chair and dreams of chasing a mysterious hooded figure with a mirror for a face.

38. “Dancers have such ugly feet. Ugh. If I was a man, I could have all the feet ... I mean, children … I wanted to, and still danced.”

39. You can watch this 1959 movie on TV, but you won’t get the full effect unless you have Emergo in your living room.

40. “A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breeze, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess' soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning.”

41. This movie’s leading man Gavin Gordon (who?) was so anxious to work with Garbo that he showed up at the first day’s shooting with a broken collarbone. (She assured him they would hold up the film until he was healed.)

42. “I give you eleven f**king years of my life and you're telling me you're leaving me for a white woman?”
“Would it help if she was black?”
“No. It would help if you were black.”

43. This movie completes the following list: Camelot, Gigi, The Little Prince, My Fair Lady, Paint Your Wagon.

44. “Nobody thinks in terms of human beings. Governments don't. Why should we? They talk about the people and the proletariat, I talk about the suckers and the mugs - it's the same thing. They have their five-year plans, so have I.”
“You used to believe in God.”
“Oh, I still do believe in God, old man. I believe in God and Mercy and all that. But the dead are happier dead. They don't miss much here, poor devils.”

45. A year after a music superstar made a highly successful film debut, he went downhill fast with this turkey that won a Worst Picture Razzie – tied with Howard the Duck, no less.

46. “I came to a realization that I was - and am - a blonde, female folk singer trapped in the body of a bald, male folk singer and I had to let me out or I would die.”

47. An actor who passed away last month at the age of 92 received his only Oscar nomination for this 1961 British drama.

48. “Did they look like psychos? Is that what they looked like? They were vampires. Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don't give a f**k how crazy they are!”

50. “What is it about Italy that makes lady novelists reach such summits of absurdity?”

“What was I supposed to do - call him for cheating better than me, in front of the others?”

57. This Oscar winner for Best Production led to a steamy affair between its leading lady (whose career was about to go into decline) and one of its supporting players (whose career was about to take off.)

58. “Gangway! Gangway for de Lawd God Jehovah!”

59. This is often considered the first “true” Hitchcock film.

60. “No one's ever been mad enough to attempt the Rach Three.”
“Am I mad enough, professor? Am I?”

61. In order to get this film made, Christopher Reeve had to agree to do a fourth Superman film.

62. “You wanna get high, man?”
“Does Howdy Doody got wooden balls, man?”

And these twelve people are asked to judge another human being as different from them as they are from each other. And in their judgment, they must become of one mind - unanimous. It's one of the miracles of Man's disorganized soul that they can do it, and in most instances, do it right well. God bless juries.”

71. In order to direct himself in this 1960 comedy, its star created and patented the video-assist technique.

72. “I'm so sorry I almost shot you. I probably wouldn't have.”
“Hey. Hey, no, shh, no. I totally get it. I'm sorry I let you get attacked by a werewolf and then ended the world.”

73. This cop buddy movie spawned a hit single for Bob Seger.

74. “This is between us. Leave them out of it.”

“No brother could, either.”

Twenty of those men were left to rot outside Baghdad after the conflict ended. No benefits were paid to their families. No medals conferred. These men died for their country and they weren't even given a goddamn military burial. This situation is unacceptable. You will transfer one hundred million dollars from Grand Cayman Red Sea trading company to an account I designate.

80. ”Grandma says hi.”

“You cursed me!”

83. Not only were this fantasy and its remake both nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture, but the roles that earned Oscar nominations for the actors in the first film also did the same for the actors playing the equivalent roles in the remake. Got that?

84. “You see, I wanted to be a detective too. It only took brains, courage, and a gun ... and I had the gun.”

85. An actor who passed away last month at the age of 90 received his first Oscar nomination for this 1988 Danish film.

86. “I told you I wasn't gonna let you touch the remote anymore. Now, give me that, buttknocker.”
“No way. And stop calling me buttknocker!”
“Give it here before I kick your buttknockering ass!”

87. This movie was partly inspired by the text of the Popol Vuh.

88. “You see any white people in there waiting an hour and thirty two minutes for a plate of spaghetti? Huh? And how many cups of coffee did we get?”

“That woman poured cup after cup to every single white person around us. Did she even ask you if you wanted any?”
“We didn't get any coffee that you didn't want and I didn't order, and this is evidence of racial discrimination?”

94. “Yeah, man. Yeah. Say, we did it, man. We did it! We did it. We're rich, man! We're retirin' in Florida now, mister.”
“You know Billy, we blew it.”

95. Thanks to a coin toss, Cecil B. DeMille made this film instead of one about the building of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe.

96. “Waiter, will you serve the nuts? I mean, will you serve the guests the nuts?”

97. You can watch this 1981 movie on TV, but you won’t get the full effect unless you have Odorama in your living room.

98. “The Americans are fools. I offered my services; they refused. So did the East. Now they can both pay for their mistake.”
“World domination. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they're Napoleon. Or God.”

99. CLINT OUT WEST, PART THREE: This Clint Eastwood western spurred a successful lawsuit by Akira Kurosawa’s production company.

SWEET HEREAFTER

22. “You're soft. You should have let 'em kill me, 'cause I'm gonna kill you. I'll catch up with ya. I don't know when, but I'll catch up. Every time you turn around, expect to see me, 'cause one time you'll turn around and I'll be there. I'm gonna kill ya, Matt.”

THE WIZ
This can't be Diana Ross, since The Wiz was her third movie and came out six years after Lady Sings the Blues. However, it does appear to apply to Bette Midler, who got an Oscar nomination in The Rose, but whose second film, JINXED, is considered a major turkey for all involved.

6. “You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned. Look around you. Did you think these people made a plan to sleep in the sports hall with you? But here we are now, sleeping together on the floor. So, there's no need for a plan. You can't go wrong with no plans. We don't need to make a plan for anything. It doesn't matter what will happen next. Even if the country gets destroyed or sold out, nobody cares. Got it?”
