Hollywood Meme

I don't do meme posts that often. But every now and then I'll do one just for the fun of it. Here's a funny and light-hearted meme for all you movie buffs out there.

The rules are simple: Just pick ten of your favorite movies and look them up on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). In the overview section on each movie's page, there is a section for Plot Keywords from that movie. Usually there will be five listed (or more if you click on the "more" link). I've selected five of those keywords and posted them. Your job is to figure out what movies I'm describing. Here's my list. Enjoy!

1. Medical Lab / Race Relations / Racist Comment / Heart / Vanderbilt University

2. Crow / Maine / Falsely Accused / Police / Escape

3. Female athlete / Assisted suicide / Amputation / Janitor / Robe

4. Arranged marriage / Barbershop / Assumed identity / Manhattan / Royalty

5. Police Corruption / Prejudice / Car Jacking / Saint Christopher / Blank bullets

6. Hypnosis / Kung Fu / TPS / Consultants / Arson

7. Llama / Idaho / Chicken Farm / Election / Dance

8. Forced Prostitution / Rivalry / Secret Love / Japanese Culture / Literature (Greeny, if you don't get this one, I'm disowning you as a friend.)

9. Car Accident / Violence / Novel / Female Psychopath / Old Dark House

10. Spoof / Makeover / Stereotypes / School / Bet

If nobody can figure these out, I'll post the answers within a week.

Andre said...

@ Greeny: #10 = "Not Another Teen Movie". But overall, job well done!

Scoring an amazing 90%, you will an all-expenses paid...uh...shout out.

Congrats.

@ Heiress: Slyvia, Slyvia, Slyvia. Two? Two?! I'm disappointed. Looks like a Saturday of banging erasers for you young lady.

@ Malik: Not as poor of an outing as Heiress, but still considerably below the curve. But, as a parting gift, I'll give you partial credit for Glass Shield.

Thanks for playing folks. Be sure to tip your waitress.

Andre said...

@ Cyn: At this point, you've could've easily piggybacked off Greeny and no one would've ever known. Your honesty is to be commended.

All the same, you still failed.

@ Sylvia: D'oh! I'm SO sorry. I always do that. Must be dyslexia or something.
