Interactive Movie Meme

It's quiet here and I'm enjoying unimpeded internet slack time so I thought I'd post some memes.  I thought this one was both difficult and amusing.

Here are the rules: Pick out ten favorite movies, then look them up at IMDb. In the overview at the top of each movie's page, there are "Plot Keywords," usually five of them. (Plus more, if you click the link.) Take the first five, and post them. Then the rest of us get to play movie buff and see if we can guess them.

Here's mine:

1. Teenage Girl / Art Institute Of Chicago / Whimsical / Chicago Cubs / High School Teacher
[info]redqueenmeg  guessed Ferris Buehler's Day Off

 
2.  Malibu /  Brat Pack / stereo / Male Female Relationship / Ex Girlfriend  

blackr0se76 guessed Say Anything under suspicious circumstances

 

3.  Part Of Trilogy  / Maelstrom  / Sand  / Cannon  / Sea God

belleatrix guessed Pirates of the Carribbean 3: At World's End

 


4. Lake  / Doctor  / House Restoration  / Sex  / Eating
And some better additional clues.  These make it really obvious, I think:
Rain / Teenage Love /  Stuttering / Walt Whitman / Carnival /  Nursing Home


5.  Wine  / Homoerotic Tension  / Windex  / Brat Pack  / Sexy Male Vampire

bredon guessed The Lost Boys

 


6. H.P. Lovecraft  / Good Versus Evil  / Bizarre  / Steampunk  / Slapstick

blackr0se76 guessed Army of Darkness.

 

7.  Table  / Batting Cage  / Wheel  / Airplane  / Lasting Friendship

belleatrix guessed When Harry Met Sally

 


8.   Seductive Dance  / Male Charm  / Temptation  / Seduction  / Miniature People

Here's a few more.. does it help? 
Betrayal /  Good Versus Evil / Box Office Flop / Rescue / Fairy Tale /  Unicorn

 


9.  Sword And Sorcery  / Loss Of Boyfriend  / Evil Prince  / Shirtless Male Bondage  / Drunkenness

belleatrix guessed The Princess Bride

 

10.  Bisexual  / Catcher In The Rye  / View Askew  / Lesbianism  / Bisexual Girl 
[info]redqueenmeg guessed Chasing Amy

1. Ferris Bueller
4. Lake House
10. Chasing Amy? (I guess Catcher in the Rye is mentioned because one of the characters is named Holden? That's a stretch.)

WTF is "demptation"? (#8)

1. Correct
4. No... did anyone like that movie?
10. Correct

Demptation is what it says in IMDB but I'm thinking it's a typo

I had to watch it 3 times because I kept catching it halfway through. Maybe that's why I didn't like it.

I actually also really dug the soundtrack, which reminds me, I need to get it sometime. :)

You used *that* icon and can't figure out #3???

Maelstrom to me indicates Norse-type origins. I'm not a fan of spreading the word around. So I got off track :D

Alright... I won't answer anymore.

Or you're going straight to IMDB.

The only movie I can think of wherein Windex is a plot point is My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but I don't remember any male vampires in it.
purplejuli
Apr. 28th, 2008 08:07 pm (UTC)
Oh no, there's definitely a Windex plot point in this one. I thought it was totally obvious but giggled at "homoerotic tension."

#4 is still incorrect but the clues kind of suck. You're right on 2 & 7.

#4- Life as a House

#5 - Lost Boys

Someone beat me to #3.
purplejuli
Apr. 29th, 2008 04:36 am (UTC)
Still no #4...

Right on #5.

Hey, you're from Meg's friend list, right?

Yup, that's me. I'm a sucker for a movie meme (even though I don't post in my own journal much - its more a vehicle for me to be able to comment on other journals without being icky anonymous internet guy)

Is #8 Labyrinth?
belleatrix
Apr. 29th, 2008 03:37 pm (UTC)
4 is the notebook, and 8 is legend. although with the first set i TOTALLY wouldn't have gotten either of them!! you have awesome taste in movies, by the way! :)
