Guess The Movie

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Here are ten quotes and one photo, all from one amazing film. Try and guess the movie without sneaking a peek at IMDB! (I've changed the names of the speakers to give it a little more mystery, but the dialogue is all original and unchanged.)


1. "You got me, Charlie. What are you going to do now?"

2. "I will civilize this land."

3.
A: "What's a misanthrope, Arthur?"
B: "Some bugger who fuckin' hates every other bugger."
A: "Hey, I didn't ask you, you black bastard!"
C: "He's right, Samuel. A misanthrope is one who hates humanity."
A: "Is that what we are -- misanthropes?"
C: "Good lord, no. We're a family!"

4. "Australia. What fresh Hell is this?"

5.
A: "Forgive me, sir, but I've been stuck here with no one but this sorry sack of Hibernian pig shit for conversation. Poor, poor Dan O'Reilly. Sit, sir. Drink with me."
[B cocks his gun and points it at A]
B: "One more crack about the Irish, Mr. Lamb, and I'll shoot you. Am I clear?"
A: "Oh, as the waters of Ennis, sir. Let us drink, then, to the Irish. No finer race of men has ever ... peeled a potato."

6. "Oh, he sits up there in those melancholy hills; some say he sleeps in caves like a beast, slumbers deep like the Kraken. The Blacks say that he is a spirit. The Troopers will never catch him. Common force is meaningless, Mr. Murphy, as he squats up there on his impregnable perch. So I wait, Mr. Murphy. I wait."

7. "Why can't you ever just...stop me?"

8. "Love. Love is the key. Love and family. For what are night and day, the sun, the moon, the stars without love, and those you love around you? What could be more hollow than to die alone, unloved?"

9.
A: "'There’s night and day, brother, both sweet things; sun and moon, and stars, brother, all sweet things; there’s likewise a wind on the heath. Life is...very... sweet, brother...'"
B: "'Life is very sweet, brother; who would wish to die?'" George Borrow, I believe. A worthy writer and a beautiful sentiment, Sir ... But you are not my brother."

A: Now, suppose I told you there was a way to save your little brother Mikey from the noose... Suppose I gave you a horse and a gun. Suppose, Mr. Burns, I was to give both you and your young brother Mikey here, a pardon... Suppose I said that I could give you the chance to expunge the guilt beneath which you so clearly labour... Suppose I gave you till Christmas... Now, suppose you tell me what it is I want from you.
B: You want me to kill me brother.
A: I want you to kill your brother.

If you're really psycho, name the characters who say these things.
And maybe the actors, too!

Hey, there might be a prize involved...

UPDATE: Yes, Kinsey, your friends is correct. Whoever he/she is, he/she gets 77 IMAGINARY AWESOME-BEANS (which are infinitely better than the so-called "cool beans")!
(they look something like this:)

I am ashamed to admit this...but I don't know ANY of them.
I just proved myself useless. Yep. You're welcome, all.

The movie is The Proposition, according to my friend reading over my shoulder, but I've never seen it.
