    Movie Meme
    Marjorie has a funny meme on her blog, and I decided to tag myself with it.

    Identify the Movie - Oficially Closed! :D

    - Pick umpteen of your favorite movies
    - Select favorite lines from these movies
    - Post them and see how long it takes friends to guess them

    Have a look, and see how many you can actually guess :^)

    Update 1:
    Come on people, only four left, and they are not the hardest ones to figure out!!
    Update 2: Bingo! And the prize goes to... well, me of course! What were you thinking?? :P

    1. That woman is a woman! - Shakespeare In Love

    2. “There's a brighter side of death?”
    “Of course. It's just harder to see.” - Van Helsing

    3. That's what I want to come home to, that's what I want to have to think about and dream about. I wanna know that the best part of my life is still ahead of me. - Pearl Harbour

    4. Well, then we have something in common. We are both not to be trusted. - Original Sin

    5. I never met a dame yet that didn't know if she was good-looking or not without being told, and there's some of them that give themselves credit for more than they've got. - A Streetcar Named Desire

    6. He's all right, I suppose, if you like dark, handsome, rich-looking men with passionate natures and too many teeth. - Breakfast At Tiffany's

    7. Components. American components, Russian Components, ALL MADE IN TAIWAN! - Armageddon

    8. Can you keep a secret? I'm trying to organize a prison break. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out? - Lost in Translation

    9. I don't like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes. Honour? Huh! Honour's killed millions of people, it hasn't saved a single one. - Fifth Element

    10. We have blue soup to start, orange pudding to end, and, well, for a main course you have, uh, congealed green gunge. - Bridget Jones Diary

    11. Define irony: a bunch of idiots dancing around on a plane to a song made famous by a band that died in a plane crash. - Con Air

    12. Normally, I have a very sweet disposition as a dog. In fact, more than once, James suggested that I make the change permanent. The tail I could live with. But the fleas? They're murder. - Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban

    13. Let's get something straight, ok? There's no "we". There never was a "we". In fact, without "me", there wouldn't even be a "you"! - Ice Age

    14. Your body's dying. Pay no attention, It happens to us all. - Interview with the Vampire

    15. I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone. - Lord of the Rings

    16. Grande, er... grande familio, grande tradizione de Christmas presents. Stupido. - Love Actually

    17. “How do you write women so well?”
    “I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.” - As Good as It Gets

    18. The kingdom of God is within you and all around you. It is not within buildings of wood or stone. Split a piece of wood and you will find me. Look beneath a stone and I am there. - Stigmata (Midget, you little cheat!)

    19. “Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don't have men killed.”
    “Oh. Who's being naive, Kay? “ - Godfather

      What we have here is a failure to communicate.

      Cool Hand Jack :)

    • At 31/07/2006, 12:20, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Oh come on, people, these are not some weird foreign movies! These are very popular ones!

    • At 31/07/2006, 14:04, Blogger don_veto said…

      Great! You guys are right about what you guessed so far.
      Midget (Anonymous) you got like LOADS, and I know it's YOU cause I know it's you, hehe. Oh and I told you about Stigmata, so it doesn't count.

      OK what about the rest of them???

    • At 31/07/2006, 17:49, Blogger Mise said…

      'Lost in Translation' I knew...and 'The Godfather'...but 'that woman is a woman' ..is that Mrs. Doubtfire, or Birdcage?

    • At 31/07/2006, 17:52, Blogger Qatar Cat said…


      Doubtfire? Birdcage? Read the beginning of the post: I had to choose my FAV movies. You are not going to suggest that these two could be my fav movies, are you? So it's a No.... and a No. But I can see why you thought about these two!


    • At 31/07/2006, 18:03, Blogger don_veto said…

      Where is my prize, I want my prize! ;-)

      I will leave a challenge to you also,

      In which movie was this said:

      Some people live a lifetime in a minute.

    • At 31/07/2006, 18:11, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Don Veto,

      I think it is either Cold Mountain or Scent of a Woman. Yes, no, maybe?

      I can imagine Al Pacino telling it to the boy, and I can imagine that blind guy telling it to Jude Law. On the second thought, I think the blind guy was saying other things... Yeah, how he wouldn't want to have his sight for 15 minutes. OK, Scent of a Woman it is, then. Or is it?

    • At 31/07/2006, 19:35, Blogger don_veto said…

      QC: "Scent of a woman" is correct, you get your prize when I get mine ;-)

      I like that phrase because in a few words, it has so much meaning.

    • At 31/07/2006, 19:47, Blogger Mise said…

      Yeah, I was in a hurry. Favourites? No. But 'Bircage' was a funny film. I laughed so much when I saw it first.

      ...that line is buggin' me though, I know it so well (from somewhere) :-D

    • At 31/07/2006, 20:24, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Don Veto,

      Ok so we owe each other a prize now :D


      I am sure you know the movie! At least you SHOULD know the movie. Keep thinking! Let me give you a hint: it was actually an accusation!

      Oh an Anonymous is Dohagirl, my buddy from www.qatarliving.com

    • At 31/07/2006, 21:49, Blogger Mise said…

      lol...I know...'Shakespeare in Love' ...I only watched it a month ago again...

      ...I saw you had already said who anonymous was, that's why I deleted it ... Of course, I thought it was someone else, but she'd probably get them all ;-D

    • At 31/07/2006, 21:58, Blogger Qatar Cat said…


      Right! I love that movie!

      And as for Anon - you are right, she probably would, but then she wouldn't sign in as anonymous :^)

    • At 31/07/2006, 22:07, Blogger Mise said…

      True ...lol...Why would she?

    • At 31/07/2006, 23:53, Blogger Flous said…

      2: Van Helsing
      6: Breakfast At Tiffany's (i love that movie!! =D =D
      9: The Fifth Element (another one of my favourites, i think i know half that movie by heart!!)
      oh and i knew 17 was 'As Good As It Gets'
      am i right?

    • At 01/08/2006, 11:52, Blogger Qatar Cat said…


      Yay! All correct! And I know the ENTIRE Fifth Element movie by heart! :D

    • At 01/08/2006, 13:16, Blogger agent000 said…

      hey there! well im new in this blog and found out that this cool game is interesting!
      here goes three "Bingo"s:

      16-Love Actually
      4- Original Sin
      5- A Streetcar Named Desire

      am I right?

    • At 01/08/2006, 13:18, Blogger Qatar Cat said…


      Yes you are! Welcome to Life in Qatar. Do I know you??

    • At 01/08/2006, 14:21, Blogger Rambling Hal said…

      Man! I made it here just in time, eh? There's only one quote left to guess - number 3!

      And I'm pretty sure it's from Pearl Harbour, no? Ben Affleck spewed that line out, or am I wrong?

      Man - wish I'd see this earlier. I would have loved guessing some of those quotes! It's scary how many of them I knew. :)

    • At 01/08/2006, 15:48, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Rambling Hal,

      Welcome to Life in Qatar (pity you aren't coming to Qatar though!). So you knew lots of those quotes, huh? Well good then you let the others try their luck :^)

      The quiz is officially closed :D

    • At 02/08/2006, 14:08, Anonymous Marjorie said…


      I can't think of any reason why this would be useful to you, but I set up an LJ syndication of your blog so that I can read it on my friends page over there. It's at http://syndicated.livejournal.com/qatarcat/.

    • At 02/08/2006, 14:56, Blogger Qatar Cat said…


      I feel privileged :^)
      Never thought you actually read my blog.

    • At 02/08/2006, 19:28, Anonymous Marjorie said…

      The reason I set up the syndication is that I keep FORGETTING to read it! :-D I'm used to just checking LJ.

    • At 02/08/2006, 20:08, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      I see.. Well I am still flattered :^)

    • At 03/08/2006, 16:29, Blogger waiting for the barbarians said…

      great post, very funny!!

    • At 05/08/2006, 18:15, Blogger mimi said…

      I couldn't figure out any until I saw the answers. I'm not too good at remembering movie TITLES let alone certain lines! Nice post though :)
