Movie Mania Monday (or...this blog goes to 11)

Some of you may (rightfully) regard me as a nerd. Hell, I regard me as a nerd. I love obscure movies, and frequently notice the little things that I'm not supposed to notice, thanks to a Film Art class at UWM back in '89. This doesn't hurt, either.

In an effort to enlighten and annoy the masses (that's you, dear reader), I will deign to point out the happy little comment beneath the blog title (Over there! Red room!) that changes from time to time and is usually a happy movie quote.

Now, CONTEST TIME! Every Monday, I will post a new quote. First person to guess correctly the original source of the quote wins a prize - no movie characters quoting other movies. Right now, the prize consists of the people's ovation and fame forever, but if you give me creative, inexpensive and generally humorous ideas, that may change.

This week's quote, as it appeared in last week's headline:

"You've got to have flowers in the warzone, baby!"

Easy target for the first one, but you get bonus points if you don't have to Google it. Bonus points, too, if you can identify this week's headline listing. Now, Allez Quoting!

I love quotes, and I love games, so I'm in!

That being said, I don't know this one, but that never stopped me from guessing.

The War of the Roses? IDK, and I don't google quotes... out of principle. I'm a purist.

But the headline quote is from The Princess Bride. Easy.

Guessing is good, but it didn't work this time for you.

You're half-right on the headline quote, the first part is another movie. Standard 'guy' movie from the 80's, but the TPB quote seemed to flow so well behind it.

Bev said...

You mean "this one goes to 11?"

'Cause that's from Spinal Tap. "Guy's movie." Pshaw!

Bev said...

oops, forgot to check "follow up" comments.

Also, I still have no clue what the warzone/flowers movie is. Farg!

Samsmama said...

I got nothin'. On any of it. I knew I'd never get it so I googled it and I haven't seen it. I've also never seen TPB. Don't judge me.

Elliott said...

Oh, we don't judge here. We just openly mock. Good times.

I did say I've seen a lot of obscure movies.

You've never seen The Princess Bride?

Fine, go on hating America like that. And Gilder.

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

Oh, I gave up, too. So I had to google the quote. And, wow. I realized it's been a LONG time since I saw that movie. At least 15 years.

Be nice and share!
