My 10 Favorite Movies

That don't include Curious George, Thomas the Train, Little Bear or Go, Diego, Go!

I totally swiped this from Badger.

Here are the rules:
1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. GUESSERS: NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions. I mean, you can cheat if you want, but is it really that important?
6. One movie guess per blogger. Give people a chance to guess before you steal all of the awesome!

Okay! Let's go!

1. Mom again! This one is Labyrinth. "Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great..."

2. No one got this one--it is Schindler's List. "We were on the roof on Monday, young Lisiek and I and we saw the Herr Kommandant come out of the house on the patio right there below us and he drew his gun and shot a woman who was passing by. Just a woman with a bundle, just shot her through the throat. She was just a woman on her way somewhere, she was no faster or slower or fatter or thinner than anyone else and I couldn't guess what had she done. The more you see of the Herr Kommandant the more you see there are no set rules you can live by, you cannot say to yourself, "If I follow these rules, I will be safe."

3. Mom knew this one, too. It is The Little Princess, a great old Shirley Temple film. "Daddy! I found you at last! Oh, Daddy, Daddy, you won't ever go away again, will you? Will you, Daddy? What's the matter, Daddy? Why won't you talk to me?"

4. Good job, Redhead in Vegas! This one is Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Character A "Give me the whip."
Character B: "Throw me the idol. No time to argue. Throw me idol, I'll throw you the whip."
Character A: [throws the idol] Give me the whip.
Character B: "Adiós, señor."

5. Congratulations Mom! This one is Gone with the Wind. "No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how."

6. I can't believe that Tara didn't come thru on this one--it is from Shakespeare in Love. (Truthfully, when I told Chris what it was, he said "I thought so!" which goes to show you that he is a TRUE Renaissance man!)"I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No... not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that... over-throws life. Unbiddable, ungovernable - like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love - like there has never been in a play."

7. Whhoo hoo to Illegal Movie Downloader, who guessed Juno. That's right! "You should've gone to China, you know, 'cause I hear they give away babies like free iPods. You know, they pretty much just put them in those t-shirt guns and shoot them out at sporting events."

8. Congratulations Beezus! This one is Bowling for Columbine. "It was the morning of April 20th 1999, and it was pretty much like any other morning in America. The Farmer did his chores. The milkman made his deliveries. The President bombed another country whose name we couldn't pronounce. Out in Fargo, North Dakota, Cary McWilliams went on his morning walk. Back in Michigan, Mrs Hughes welcomed her students for another day of school. And out in a little town in Colorado, two boys went bowling at 6 in the morning. Yes, it was a typical day in the United States of America."

9. Amy got this one. The Last Unicorn. "I am no longer like the others, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but now I do. I regret."

10. OK Mom, no more guessing! She's right though, this one is the Wizard of Oz. "Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?"
