  1. Here's one: They said the sun never set on the British empire, And it can also be said that "good old Nick" would have been a fair umpire. This rule-abiding WWII veteran would probably memorize and know well every rule of the game bridge, Just as he'd most certainly build a big bridge. He'd think of the Geneva Code as quite groovy, Can you name the movie?
  2. Western- Red River, True Grit Drama- A Man For All Seasons, On The Waterfront Suspense- Rear Window, Wait Until Dark, The Wrong Man, Shadow of a Doubt Musicals- The Sound of Music, The Band Wagon, Singin' In The Rain, West Side Story War- The Bridge On The River Kwai Romantic Comedy/ Screwball Comedy- Roman Holiday, The Awful Truth, Harvey Action Adventure- The Adventures of Robin Hood
  3. That is correct. I've always tried to notice the engravings whenever I watch the movie, but I can never see them. Your thread.
  4. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, what sci-fi characters are supposedly engraved on the walls of the snake pit when Indiana Jones and Sallah are carrying the Ark of the Covenant?
  5. I think that Jurassic Park & Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom have beautiful and underrated soundtracks. The "Main Themes" from Jurassic Park are wonderful. As for Temple of Doom, "Short Round's Theme," "Slave Children's Crusade," and "Return to the Village" stand out. In my opinion, John Williams is the greatest movie composer in movie history.
  6. Okay. A guy helps some other guys carry out a murder when he thinks he is just helping them push someone around, and he gets some moral and spiritual help afterwards from a young lady and a Catholic priest. Edited by: THEMovieman on Jan 27, 2013 7:54 PM
  7. That is correct; I think it's a terrific movie.
  8. A king wants an annulment, and he demands the help and eventually the head of a certain holy and intelligent man.
  9. This movie also starred Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria.
  10. In this new game, whoever controls the thread must write a short rhyming poem that describes a particular movie. Everyone else can then guess from the poetry what that movie is. Here is the first poem; can you name the movie? A movie actor walks alone by himself, Discovering that his career has been put back on a shelf. He then meets up with two of his perky friends, And soon becomes a part of many song and dance numbers that only musicals can amend. He meets a tall guy who is rather tough, But who'd probably rather
  11. What recent movie had to do with the persecution of Catholics in Mexico and contained a few scenes with the classic actor, Peter O'Toole?
  12. Could it be "Get Happy" from 1930?
  13. The nominations are decent, but there were definitely some snubs. I am surprised that Harry Potter didn't get nominated for Best Picture; not only did it get rave reviews, but I don't think the series has ever won an Oscar, and the Academy can be very sympathetic. The Best Song category is disappointing; "Life's a Happy Song" and "Star-Spangled Man" should have been in there. I thought that "The Artist", "Hugo", "Moneyball", and "War Horse" were all great movies, with "War Horse" being my favorite, although I think that "The Artist" deserves Best Picture. A silent, old-fashioned movie in 2011-
  14. Recently, the Golden Globe and Critic's Choice Awards were announced, and although they are not as big as the Academy Awards, I thought that there were some ridiculous nominations and snubs. My biggest complaint is in the "best song" category for both awards shows. Although "Life's A Happy Song" from The Muppets was at least nominated for a Critic's Choice Award, it along with the "Star-Spangled Man" were not nominated for Golden Globes. Captain America: The First Avenger was one of my favorite movies of the summer, and I thought that it was decently underrated. In my opinion, the "Star-Spangl
  15. This line is from what Hitchcock movie? "There are 20 million women in this island and I get to be chained to you."
  16. The movie is directed by Terence Young.
  17. The crop-dusting plane sequence in *North By Northwest* was the inspiration for a scene in what '60s action adventure? Edited by: THEMovieman on Feb 16, 2011 8:12 PM
  18. "What seems to be the trouble, Captain?" from *The Trouble With Harry*
