#2 is The Fellowship of the Ring.

I'm annoyed I don't know any of the others (apart from the aforementioned #4, of course...) :)

Yes, but alas you were a moment too late to get first credit.

And, wow, I thought I'd chosen pretty easy ones. Just goes to show that everyone has different movie tastes!

I usually suck at these, yet I can snap half of them, so I'll recuse myself.

#1 = Boondock Saints.

The rest (of the unguessed ones) are tantalizingly familiar, but... wow. Tough ones.

Okay, figuring that we were limited to one right answer each, I decided to start googling the rest... and I can't freakin' believe I'd forgotten #3!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Now that I know, I can even remember the exact scene and the deadpan method it was delivered... CINEMA GOLD!!

As we have discussed in fairly recent conversations... I haven't seen that movie in WAY too long!

It's one of my favorite lines of all time for delivery. Followed by #7, which, if you have not seen really should be seen.

We must make a movie night of it soon.

I really, really suck at quotes.


One time, a RL friend posted the first line from a book that I love, that I've read numerous times, and that I introduced him to, and it still took forever to figure it out, even after those facts had been pointed out.

But I'll try anyway:

9 = From Dusk til Dawn?

#9: The Cowboys
#13: Gone with the Wind
I can picture the scene for #15, but can not think of the title.

You got 10, but not 9, which has now been guessed. Good assumption, though!

Well, I'd have known #2 if I'd read this yesterday. Go play mine. The easy ones have been guessed, but I'm pretty sure you'll know some of the ones that are still left.
