Friday Name that Movie

You guys really blew it last week, and I was very impressed with my theme, but I guess everyone was focused on storm coverage. Anyway, let's try this again. Keep in mind, when I do these themes, I may repeat a movie or two that has been used before if it fits my theme. Guess them all (and the theme) and you may win a prize.* And be sure to check back tomorrow for Saturday Night Name that Song.**

1. Some lady gave it to him. She even signed her name on it... Ruth. Baby Ruth.
2. Wait. It wasn't me. It was a hit man named Bullseye. I didn't kill your father.
3. I'm so drunk, I'm sober.
4. Scratch a lie, find a thief.
5. ...there's only two syllables in this whole wide world worth hearing: pussy. Hah! Are you listenin' to me, son? I'm givin' ya pearls here.
6. We have always had a gentle understanding with the creatures that live in the woods.
7. These things are good: ice cream and cake, a ride on a harley, seeing monkeys in the trees, the rain on my tongue, and the sun shining on my face. These things are a drag: dust in my hair, holes in my shoes, no money in my pocket, and the sun, shining on my face.
8. I am not a man. I began as one, but now I am becoming more than a man, as you will witness.
9. Have you ever seen blood in the moonlight, Will? It appears quite black
10. Not bad for a blind man! But that butter knife ain't gonna stop no bullet!

* There is no prize.
** If I feel like it.

I can't place any of them, although several of them sound vaguely familiar. Probably from when you used them before.

But I'm going to guess that #7 is from The Motorcycle Diaries, a movie I've never seen.

John Howard said...

I'm not sure I used any of these before, but I like to put the disclaimer in just in case.

That's not correct, I've never seen that either.

The One True Tami said...

Criminies, all I know is #2 - Daredevil, which, by the way, was total crap.

Wait! 7 is "Mask"! I knew that sounded familiar.

John Howard said...

Both correct.

Matt said...

1. The Sandlot - Great movie
5. Scent of a Woman
6. hmmm... That sounds really familiar. I remember it was a line from a movie trailer... except I never ended up seeing the movie - Go figure.

No guess on the theme.

Shakespeare's Sister said...

#3 is Jennifer Eight (I think).
#4 is Ray.
#8 is Red Dragon.
#9 is Manhunter.
#10 I don't know.

Are they all movies you and Keri saw while you were dating?

Shakespeare's Sister said...

Oh, and #6 I think is The Village, but I'm not sure. Which, if I'm right, makes my guess of the theme moot.

Chris Howard said...

The theme seems to be movies with blind characters.

John Howard said...

Matt got 1 and 5. Shakes got the rest, and Chris got the theme.

Mike Meitín said...

#10 is Blind Fury!

Shakespeare's Sister said...

Ooh, good theme!

John Howard said...

Correct, Mike.

I thought it was a good theme, too, though it took a while to think of 10 movies with blind characters that had recognizable quotes. That's why I used both Red Dragon and Manhunter.

I liked my theme from last week better, but no one was interested with all the storm coverage.
