Here's a third:

Long distance correspondence because of old books.

Here's one:

Seventh (and last):

:-)

Jail. Mission. Reunion. Concert. Car chase. Jail.

You've seen that one too? ;)

JohnL: Love it!

Here's another from me:

Italian man saves girl, plant, from baddies.

I am Jack's destructive side.

Dead hitman's final victim ... his own killer.

HT: I had doubts about that being the name of the film version of the (excellent) short story, but dammit I can't remember anymore. Charleton Heston was in it, that I know. Crap I hate getting old.

How about: Punk biker drinks coffee, loses town honey.

"Most disgusting ending ever put on film."

Someone mentioned Pink Flamingos earlier, which would have been one of my guesses. However, the endings of Necromantik or Salo shorely do qualify as well...

Okay, as of yet no one has guessed the title of my favorite flick. Here's one for my second favorite (someone's gotta know this one...)

Hopalong Cassidy killed himself here.

That's less than 7...but when you're the character who said the above sentence, who cares?

spd rdr: how do you think I found the name of the movie? Like you, I knew the short story, but all I remembered was that Heston was in the movie. So I googled his filmography and looked in the 50's to find the right one.

I also loved that story. Still have it, in fact, in a beat up copy of a Modern Library anthology.

'Bug prevents family from enjoying pork chops.'

This one is rather vague:

'Reporter tries to solve chain letter murders.'

So, I'll do another one for the same movie:

'Pass it on, or bad luck awaits.'

Time for a hint.

Sweeping it all up again:

Try another one from the same movie:

Boondock brothers kill the bad guys only.

JohnPK, would that be "From Dusk Till Dawn"?

Nah, never mind.

Annastazia's "funny looking guy chased by pregnant cop": fargo. awesome.

(except the funny looking guy was in the woodchipper when the pregnant cop finally got there.)

I'm still stunned at some of mine that haven't been gotten.

"Let's all watch Arnold pick his nose"- Total Recall

MJ - Yes the 'teenage angst' film was "Heathers".

As for your three other movies- 'The only good bug is a dead bug'. I think this is "Starship Troopers". If I recall, Mr. Cranky summed this movie up as follows: 'I have seen the future and it has perfect teeth.'

Can't even venture a guess on the 'after the spankings come oral sex'.

'The map was in the guy's ass' - "The Bourne Identity" maybe?

Beauty flees Nazis, a beautiful friendship starts

Clark: I'll take a guess.

Breakfast Club and Schindler's List?

Funny Mel Blanc crossdresses to see kids.

An honest, authentic swordfight at the end.

Would you like some making fuck? Beserker!

RDA - "Starship Troopers" it is.

cheshirecat got "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"

An alternate to The map was in the guy's ass is:

Four misfits search for hidden desert gold.

clark smith:
Enjoying the aroma of flammables before noon is "Apocalypse Now"

Victorious General mortally wounded in fender bender is "Patton"

Twelve Allied cons obliterate a German villa is "The Dirty Dozen"

Badass Nazi cannons howling like freight trains could be "The Guns of Navarone"?

Nerwen: "Dancer worries about weight..." Center Stage?

"Wedding, blush and bashful..." Steel Magnolias

"Costner's film debut on cutting room floor." The Big Chill

No one got mine:
Scientist, bones, socialite, olive tricks, clothing chaos.

Clark:
"Terrible phalanx..."
Dangerous Minds?

"Straight Divorcee..."
Under the Tuscan Sun

"Rogue finally tells Belle..."
Gone With The Wind

"Enjoying the aroma..."
Apocalypse Now

No one got mine yet?:
"Oh Felicia, where the fuck are we?"
Here's another hint:
Cock, frock, rock, no more bloody Abba!

Priscilla: Queen of the Desert

Let's see if anyone dares to name this one:

Bad boy turned good by pastel ewoks.

MJ--YES on Apocalypse Now; Patton; Dirty Dozen; and great work for getting Guns of Navarone!

Since you're so good at war flicks, can you guess ...

Nazi tanks suprise Allies, but lack petrol.

Hint: One of its stars is a bald guy.

And another hint about ...

Anti-war journalist goes to 'Nam, gets 'saved.'

... it stars the Duke ... and a member of the original Star Trek cast.

WriterMom--YES on Apocalypse Now; Tuscan Sun; Gone With The Wind; NO on "Dangerous Minds"

Someone solved the "phalanx of pubescence reference" in a private Email, but I'll give a bigger hint here ...

A larger quote from the movie is: "Slow down, boys! Slow down, you horrible
phalanx of pubescence!"

Funny movie, but with a tragic end. :-(

"and you don't want us exposing ourselves"

McGehee:
Vituosity
The Perfect Storm

Thank you, TJ!

"Big mouth don't make a big man."
Maybe another hint will help:
Boys to men and "We're burnin' daylight!"

"The Cowboys"!

I had virtuosity without the double clues (it takes a while to read all these!)

I'll give Zach credit too.

George Bailey meets Duke, and Lee Marvin.

"The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"

Anti-war journalist goes to 'Nam, gets 'saved.'

"The Green Berets" (thanks for the hint!)

McGehee--great get on "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance." PS--also kudos for your earlier "Octopussy" get.

This is the last one of my original 15 that hasn't been solved:

>> Karaoke tournament ends in suicide-by-cop.

First hint was "Leader, but no news."

New hint: In his film debut, he complained that Marty's music was too loud.

Kill the robots. Not the pretty one.

And two later clues:

> "You're the world's only living heart donor."
Hint: Greg Kinnear and the Temple of Remake.

> "Over the top? I can never tell."
Hint: Jim Morrison defeats Agent Kay and Ace Ventura.

McGehee--"Green Berets" Yaaaaaaaaaaay! (The Sulu reference made the difference?) :-D Dude, you rock. :-)

Three of mine that I really want solved ...

Sociopath proposes a twisted double murder. Crisscross.

Many have tried to solve this one. Here's a bunch of hints: It was made in the 50's by a famous director; the plot involves a professional athlete protagonist; the climax of the film takes place on a runaway carosel; the word "Crisscross" is central to the plot, and is actually said by the antagonist.

Funny Mel Blanc crossdresses to see kids.

Comedy (not much more I can say than that).

Repo man fears penis fish in jungle.

Tough guy worries about his equipment.

Actually, Clark, the John Wayne reference did it -- far as I know, that was his only Vietnam movie. But George Takei didn't hurt.

Funny Mel Blanc crossdresses to see kids.

"Mrs. Doubtfire" -- and don't you ever again sully Mel Blanc's memory by comparing him in any way to Robin Williams. ;-p

Terrible phalanx of pubescence reads some rhyme.

Dead Poets Society

No one's guessed this yet ...

Texas Ranger kicks a Mexican's teeth out.

Hints: The film's chief antagonist (no, not the Mexican described above) is elsewhere fondly remembered as a green, hopping insect; and from the original description--c'mon--you already KNOW who the film's protagonist is. :-)

Yep, Stephen, Carpe diem!

(and to McGehee) May the Saturday morning cartoon gods forgive me for using Mel Blanc's name in such a disgraceful fashion!

The Terminator, Apollo Creed, and the Body.

Brynner. McQueen. Buchholz. Bronson. Vaughn. Dexter. Coburn.

Motorcyclist--fleeing Nazis--jumps fences; alas!, machinegunned. :-(

86, 99, and a most ludicrous WMD.

It's a mad, mad, mad-cap treasure hunt.

Incompetent 007 wannabe battles psycho French villain.

Auto flick; two words, each repeated twice.

Brynner. McQueen. Buchholz. Bronson. Vaughn. Dexter. Coburn.

Now, come on -- somebody's not even trying!

This clue reminds me of a "Cheers" episode in which the gang invies Frasier to watch the movie in question, and Frasier confesses that he's always been a big fan of Horst Buchholz.

Motorcyclist--fleeing Nazis--jumps fences; alas!, machinegunned.

But I won't leave this one for someone else: "The Great Escape".

86, 99, and a most ludicrous WMD.

"The Nude Bomb"

It's a mad, mad, mad-cap treasure hunt.

(Yea! I finally figured out how to do those cool inset blocks!)

But I'm afraid to try this one -- Clark, do you mark off for getting the number of repeated words wrong?

Bad love story. unrealistic action. Sailing.

Gladiator caught; supporters all claim his identity.

Kill the robots. Not the pretty one.

"Blade Runner" again?

Prolific sci-fi writer rolling in his grave.

(At least two possibilities, but this one isn't "Starship Troopers")

Bad love story. unrealistic action. Sailing.

Can we narrow this down? Was Errol Flynn in it?

Yea! I finally figured out how to do those cool inset blocks!

Shoot, McGehee; you should have asked before, I'da told ya! :-p

getting the number of repeated words wrong

Heh, well I ran out of words (only seven allowed)

Bad love story. Unrealiatic action. Sailing.
Titanic, right? At least the "bad love story" and "sailing" part. ;-)

Here's ANOTHER magnificent seven (er, eight ... though Spigas wouldn't fit):

Godzilla. Rodan. Mothra. Anguilas. Minya. Manda. Baragon. ...

Michele, when this thread hits 1,000, sell!

The King shakes hips in Sin City.

Doctors; Korean War. TV spinoff was better. :-P

DaT hOOps gEnIe iZ fUgLY, fO sHiZZle!

DaT hOOps gEnIe iZ fUgLY, fO sHiZZle!

Another worst movie ever: Kazaam.

Blade Runner is right

No one is close on my other movie.

Bad love story. Unrealiatic action. Sailing.

I'll throw in another word.

Whomper

M*A*S*H-TV series was better
Sabrina-living heart donor

You'll get it in one word: Zapruder.

Knights clapping coconuts go on silly journeys

Boy works hard gets in one game.

Girl kills lover lots of singing ensues

Costner, in one of moviedom's greatest flops.

Waterworld...stinky movie!

Suicide causes death row penalty for activist.

Truthful defense attorney mugs himself in bathroom.

Costner's bad accent, good story, great villain

Sabrina-living heart donor

<dingdingdingdingdingdingding>

We have another winner!

Thought it was "As Good As It Gets," but then remembered the scene in Sabrina

Knights clapping coconuts go on silly journeys

"First you must bring us ... a shrubbery!"

"What...is your name?"

"It's nothing but a bloody rabbit!"

<taptaptap>

Is this thing on?
