Guess the movie from a quote

edited September 2014 in Plex Film Club

Let's start a game, shall we? It goes like this: You give a not too obvious quote from a movie that's not too hard and not too easy, and the first to guess it wins and can state the next quote, after posting some interesting trivia about the movie just guessed. Bonus points for finding and embedding a videoclip where the line is spoken! Googling/searching the quote is not allowed, obviously. ;) If someone gets an answer right, please like his/her post to give karma as a reward.

 

I'll start:

Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    That was a tough one... no money, no weed gave it away (after a detour to Trainspotting)  :D

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels by Guy Ritchie (1998)!

    That was too hard, and noone jumped in, so I had to use Google  :ph34r:

    Apparently it's The Last of the Mohicans (1992)

    Trivia: Daniel Day-Lewis lived in the wilderness where his character might have lived, hunting and fishing and living off the land for several months prior to shooting.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die.

    Mr. Sisco - if you get the answer you can post a quote yourself.  :)

    I'll do the next one:

    This isn't life, it's just stuff. And it's become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that's just nuts.

    Too difficult? Here's another one:

    The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts.

    There are two possible solutions for this quote, as this scene has been shown inside another recent movie, where a very human looking robot imitates the actor and gives a reading of the line. Bonus points for whoever guesses both movies!  B)

    C-C-COMBO bonus points for whoever guesses both movies AND embeds a clip that contains both movies!  :D

    It appeared first in Lawrence of Arabia, where he is holding the candle to his hand?

    I don't have a guess for the second time

    Well done!  :) Classic movie... the second reference is within Prometheus (2012):

    Hmmm, maybe that would be an idea for another thread... movie references within other movies.

    I get it. It's nice up here. You can just shut down all the systems, turn out all the lights, and just close your eyes and tune out everyone. There's nobody up here that can hurt you. It's safe. I mean, what's the point of going on? What's the point of living? Your kid died. Doesn't get any rougher than that. But still, it's a matter of what you do now. If you decide to go, then you gotta just get on with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride. You gotta plant both your feet on the ground and start livin' life.

    Last quote was from Gravity (2013).

    Trivia: When Matt and Ryan are making their way to the International Space Station, he finds out Ryan is from Lake Zurich, Illinois, and states that it's 8:00 P.M. there. They are floating over Egypt where it is 3:00 A.M. locally.

    Too easy.  American Beauty.

    When Lester throws the asparagus, he was supposed to throw it on the floor.  The reactions of Annette Bening and Thora Birch are genuine.

    I think this is referenced when Lester first meets RIcky Fitts at a social event. Ricky asks him if he "gets high," and they go out the back to smoke weed. They then laugh about the movie Re-Animator (1985), although the line you quote is never explicitly mentioned. Nice suggestion man! Not too easy, not too hard.  B)

    Trivia: The special effects department went through 25 gallons of fake blood during the shoot of Re-Animator.

    Bonus trivia: The hand that pours the Whiskey for Lester Burnham in the scene above is that of director Sam Mendes.
