Guess the movies in a sentence

#1

Post by joachimt »

I made this clip as a birthday present for my father-in-law and thought it would be a fun new game to start. Starting a new one is quite a daunting task, so let's hope this thread won't die too soon.

Here's how it works:
- Someone creates a sentence (or multiple sentences) made of snippets from movies.
- Users guess which movies are included. Post a numbered list within spoiler tags. Other users decide for themselves if they want to play with or without opening spoiler tags. You can't guess twice in a row without someone else guessing.
- The first one who guesses all movies correctly is the winner.
- The winner is allowed to start the next one, but if you think it's too hard or takes too much time, you can pass it on.
- If you use something not in English, make sure it is subbed.

Some technical support:
This website has a great collection of short clips. You can search by keywords, because all dialogue in those clips have been transcribed. You can download the clips if you login with Facebook or Google.
Cutting and combining clips can be done in lots of ways, online and offline. I found the new Photos app in Windows10 to be pretty easy to use.

And last but not least, this game is more about the fun of creating something cool from clips than it's about guessing the movies, so be creative!

So without further ado, guess the 15 movies in this birthday message to my father-in-law.

Not a single reply? Even if you can't guess all of them, you can still post what you do know and I'll let you know how many you've got right.

Ah, it is shorter and easier than I thought. I'd say for a start:
Spoiler
Notting Hill (Julia Roberts), Sister Act (nun on piano) and Paths of Glory (first Kirk Douglas). And probably a Woody Allen I can't recall.

You've got #10 correct, so we're up to 14/15 now.
#9 is the only one I haven't seen myself. It's from the 50's and on 3 official lists.
