Movie Quiz

I don't have time to write a "proper" post today - trifling matters like work and playing football are getting in the way.

So, by way of an apology, I'll finally get around to replying to the Movies Meme as originally seen over at Blissful Bedlam and Erica's Blog.

Here's the thinking behind the Meme: Pick out ten favorite movies, then look them up at

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.

So here are my movies:

Informer/Tragedy/Growing Up/Rise and Fall/No Opening Credits (That's an easy one to start with)

Bad Guy/Suspect/Line Up/Myth/FBI Agent (That's even easier)

Kennedy Assassination/Child Abuse/Mentally Impaired/Legless Person/Vietnam War Veteran (More of a tough one)

Door Broken Down/Stephen King/Snow/Disturbing/Cannibalism (Far too easy)

Dysfunctional Family/Pepsi/Television/Girl Next Door/Self Fulfillment (Not a hope in hell!)

Martial Arts/Hyperspace/Famous Opening Theme/Galactic War/Computer (A bit confusing, but probably still fairly easy)

1990s/1950s/1960s/Rise and Fall/Marijuana (Good luck!)

Female Sniper/Disturbing/Physical Abuse/Electric Shaver/1960s (What?!)

Long Take/Kiss/Katana Sword/Payback/Blood (I wouldn't have got this one)

Voice Over/Death of Daughter/Disturbing/Tragedy/Narration (A bit vague)

Post your guesses in the comments - there may be a prize for the person with the highest score - no cheating!

4 - The Shining

9 - Kill Bill? (ALthough it should be a Hattori Hanzo sword so probably not)

I suck at this

I know I'm completely cheating, but is there a huge clue in your profile ;-)

We have a winner: Ralph scored a very creditable 8 out of 10, although I think he may have cheated by looking at my profile.

Despite that, Ralph, you can expect your prize sometime soon, when I get around to sorting it out.

For the record, the ten movies were:

1: Goodfellas
2: The Usual Suspects
3: Forrest Gump
4: The Shining
5: Back To The Future
6: Star Wars
7: Blow
8: Full Metal Jacket
9: Pulp Fiction
10: Trainspotting
