Elaine said...

Can I get Partial Credit for getting LOTR? That would bring my GPA up to at least passing!

In my defense, I fell asleep on ALL THREE of the movies and it would be just so, so unfair for me to be held to account for not recognizing 'significant scenes.'

I mean, even Cartophiliac had the same wrong answer, and you know how famous he is!!!

man, I'm gonna stink this one up...

1 Lord of the Rings...and it should be the second one, The Two Towers, though who knows if it really is since they divided the movies in weird places...
2 I think that's the movie where Hugh Grant is not the prime minister and not entangled with Julia Roberts...so, About A Boy
3 Yeah, yeah, the aliens are in the cornfields...but I have no idea what the title is...maybe it's Aliens in the Corn
4 Ratz
5 Dressed to Kill

...meaning that the MQLXXXI EP winners are cinema enthusiasts Yankee in England, Rebel, PB, mhwitt, and d!

Michael5000 said...

@Elaine: Mel Gibson was only in cryonic deep freeze in Hamlet.

@Yank: The Two Towers ruined Christmas for you? How the hell did THAT work? Also, is "(The first on I believe by the year)" some sort of crazy BritSpeak?

@snowgirl: Hi, snowgirl!

@Elizabeth: I can see where you would have got this image confused with the other 2002 Mel Gibson hit, "The Hershey Kiss Family Reads Bedtime Stories." I hope you don't think I was tricksy for picking an image that could have gone either way.

@Karin: "LOTR dreck"? I'm curious as to why you thought so -- even noted curmudgeons like myself tended to allow that the LOTR movies were not nearly as bad as might have been expected.

@Elaine: Pull yourself together, Elaine! It's unseemly to grovel!

@Mrs.5000: "Ratz." Nice.
