The lyrics memes were such a success at generating brainstorms, reminiscences, and fun that I thought I'd branch out!
Please propagate this, if you like.

Movie Taglines Meme

Can you identify the film title?
(Hint: think about the year. Once you get going, this should be very easy.)

  • 1. Adventure has a new name.

  • 2. Free your mind.

  • 3. With great power comes great responsibility.

  • 4. You will find adventure, or adventure will find you.

  • 5. What we do in life echoes in eternity.

  • 6. Every generation has a legend. Every journey has a first step. Every saga has a beginning.

  • 7. Nothing on Earth can prepare you.

  • 8. Protecting the earth from the scum of the universe.

  • 9. EARTH: Take a good look. It could be your last.

  • 10. An Adventure For Those Who Seek To Find A Way To Leave Their World Behind.


They do start to blend together, don't they?

Movie Quotes Meme

Identify the film title and speakers (character names).


  • 1. You cannot be eighty! (Eighty-seven.)

  • 2. You call this diplomacy? (No, I call it aggressive negotiations.)

  • 3. I know all about accidents, and let me give you some advice: when you leave a man for dead, make sure that he's really dead.

  • 4. A dream to some... a nightmare to others!

  • 5. If this factory ever produces a shell that can actually be fired, I'd be very unhappy.

  • 6. In my bedroom, where my wife sleeps! Where my children come and play with their toys. In my home...

  • 7. We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation. As for Andy - he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer. [The actor's name is acceptable for this one, as the character's name is obscure.]

  • 8. Whether or not what we experienced was an According to Hoyle miracle is insignificant. What is significant is that I felt the touch of God. God got involved.

  • 9. You're still my enemy in the morning. (You're still my enemy tonight.)

  • 10. Oy. Ten thousand years can give you such a crick in the neck!

  • 11. How can you read this? There are no pictures in it! (Well, some people use their imagination.)

  • 12. You and I are a lot alike. We look death in the face and laugh. (Actually, I more like make belittling comments and snicker behind death's back.) [Again, the actor names will suffice here.]


Get all of these, Maggie, and I will bow before you.

No, rilly!

In the trailer, I saw:

ACHILLES: You're still my enemy in the morning.
PRIAM: You're still my enemy tonight.


In the<IMDb "Memorable Quotes" section, it's the other way around.

Sheezzzzzzz...you never give up do ya? Spoilerific material. Highlight to read! Priam comes to Achilles to ask for Hector's body. They have a chitchat and Achilles agrees to give Hector's body back and says You're still my enemy in the morning! and Peter freakin' O'Toole, I mean Priam replies You're still my enemy tonight!. And then he says something or other about how even enemies should sometimes show respect.

There! Happy?

1. You cannot be eighty! (Eighty-seven.)

TTT:SE, Eowyn

2. You call this diplomacy? (No, I call it aggressive negotiations.)

Hmm. I've seen it. Could it be Terminator 3, John Connor and Arnie?

3. I know all about accidents, and let me give you some advice: when you leave a man for dead, make sure that he's really dead.

Seen this one too, but no chance of memembering.

4. A dream to some... a nightmare to others!

5. If this factory ever produces a shell that can actually be fired, I'd be very unhappy.

Schindler's List, Schindler.

6. In my bedroom, where my wife sleeps! Where my children come and play with their toys. In my home...

7. We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation. As for Andy - he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer. [The actor's name is acceptable for this one, as the character's name is obscure.]

Shawshank Redemption, 'Red' (Morgan Freeman)

8. Whether or not what we experienced was an According to Hoyle miracle is insignificant. What is significant is that I felt the touch of God. God got involved.

Signs, former Reverend Mel Gibson

10. Oy. Ten thousand years can give you such a crick in the neck!

Aladdin a la Disney, Genie

11. How can you read this? There are no pictures in it! (Well, some people use their imagination.)

The movie quotes, since the taglines all sound familiar but the only one I can place is #3 (Spiderman).

1. Eowyn speaking to Aragorn in TTT (extended).
10. Spaceballs. Yogurt, wasn't he called?
11. Gaston, in Disney's Beauty and the Beast (Belle answering).

#2 might be Independence Day, and that'd be the president answering, but I'm decidedly unsure of that one.
