I have to admit that [livejournal.com profile] carnaaki appealed to my ambition with his little quiz-thing and that's why I have decided to do one of my own. But, as my knowledge is by far not as encyclopedic as his, this is bound to be reasonably easy. Especially as the more gothically inclined amongst you might recognize the odd bit used in a song.

So, here goes, I pass the mic to the Chris Tarrant of Hell:


Name the films these lines come from AND just to prove you aren't cheating and looking them up online, provide the context of THE SCENE from which they come (as in "Just as Dirty Harry is about to shoot him" or "the bit where Mr Pink, Mr Blue and Mr Orange are in a Mexican Standoff and Mr Blue is watching"). Extra Kudos if you can provide following lines/character names or other such trivia (Cheating is punishable by blood-eagle).

(EDIT: So far only Carnaaki has come up with correct answers, but at least he did come up with a lot of them. 8-) For most of these quotations we are still looking for context, though.)

1. "Right, right. Somebody said "alien" she thought they said "illegal alien" and signed up!" (Okay, so that one was easy: "Aliens". Quote the next two lines off the top of your head for bonus points.)

2. "You will not be saved by the false God Plutonium - You will not be saved by the false God Uranium - in fact YOU WILL NOT BE SAVED!" "Prince of Darkness"

3. "Are they all this powerful on Planet Earth?"

4. "You've been exploding frogs again."

5. "If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, then you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth."
Yes, you've heard it in a song, but where is it from? "Jacob's Ladder" . And who said it?

6. "Care for a little necrophilia, hmm?"

7. "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"

8. "Don't expect it to tango; it has a broken back." Herbert West, "Re-animator" doing what he does with Rufus, the cat.

9. "So eager to play, so reluctant to admit it." The king of subtle threats, Pinhead in "Hellraiser II: Hellbound" . Don't expect Chuck Norris.

10. "Can you fly, Bobby?"

11. "I have just narrowly avoided having a buggering, and have come in here with the express intention of wishing one upon you." "Withnail and I" Context?

12. "Kiri kiri kiri kiri kiri kiri!" The terrifying finale of "Audition".

1) Aliens - Post cryo chamber/debrief, said about Vasquez?
2) I soooo should know this... I keep thinking Hellraiser or Event Horizon. I'm gonna kick myself when I find out.
3) Again, not sure but I think Flash Gordon. Ummmm...if it is it could be one of 3 scenes.
4) *shrug*
5) I'm almost certain that comes from Jacob's Ladder, but as I've only seeen that film twice and didn't think too much of it I don't know what scene.
6) *shrug*
7) Steve Buscemi to Nicholas Cage in Con Air. Just as the convicts start playing Sweet Home Alabama by Lynnrd Skynnrd.
8) Again, should know this one. I'm thinking Re-animator although I don't know which one, in which case its Herbert West (Jeffrey Coombs) to Dan after they have just tested a serum variant on another corpse.
9) Hellraiser, definately. Either 1 or 2, because its to the first protagonist by Pinhead. I think Hellraiser 2 because its one of the later times she has opened the Puzzle Box and is trying to convince them that she didn't summon them to be ripped apart.
10) Aaaargh. Should know this one.
11) That sounds like a film I have never seen. Sounds luvvy and mentions buggery so its got to be Richard E. Grant in Withnail and I.
12) I shudder to think, although I've probably watched it.

Wow. I was very poor on the context there wasn't I?

Dan clears the field.
I just have to make this more difficult.
1. First briefing. Get extra points if you can quote the next two lines off the top of your head. The gist of Vasquez's line will do. ;-)
2. Neither of those, but look, there is another comment...
3. "Flash Gordon" is not a bad direction, but it is a little more recent.
4. Well, yes, possibly a bit obscure, but a major motion picture that, as far as I know, did see general release. And featured people that are global stars today.
5. Correct! Well, I give the context to the goths, then. That line has been sampled by a lot of goth musicians (VNV Nation, amongst others) and I was curious if anybody had seen the film.
6. Rack your brains. I KNOW you've seen that film.
7. Mister Walker wins a chocolate bar. :-)
8. Close enough. West is demonstrating the serum on the cat.
9. "Hellbound", indeed. Just after the "Kirsty's room" sequence.
10. Indeed. Classic 80s-Villain-line. :-) Little hint? Late 80s, Sci-Fi, followed by steadily degrading sequels (okay, lots of those in the Eighties).
11. I do kneel in the face of your logic. Context, anybody?
12. If you shudder, you're on the right track. Certainly one of the more disturbing moments in the cinema of the last 10 years. Hint: "Kiri" means "deeper" in Japanese. (At least that's how the subtitles translated it)

Okay, so the context is still open for all, but, as expected, very good going. Let Pip express just how proud you can be. Because you can be very proud.

That'd make 12) Audition then...I have seen the end half hour of that film, so I know the scene and its horrible and involves insertion of painful things in bits where you don't want painful things inserted (unless you are a warped serial killing masochistic woman).
From: [identity profile] von-geisterhand.livejournal.com
Indeed. 8-)

Although, in this case it is "painful thing insertion" for sadistic women. To see masochistic female painful thing insertion, you need to watch that korean film "The Isle". (Not quite certain whether that bit hasn't been cut in the UK version, though.)

2) Actually, I think it might be Prince of Darkness by John Carpenter. I know its a film where demonic forces through possession come close to bringing about apocalypse, but having seen so many I'm having difficulty pinning it down :)

Your feelings do not betray you.
Class line and I do wish I could've used it in LRP.
Guess that means I'll have to start with "Insylum".

4 rings bells but all I can think of is Harry Potter. It is a recent film though.

"Recent" is relative

It's from the early 90s, so that's only relatively recent. And I do admit that it is one of the more obscure films on the list. It does star people that are very famous nowadays, though...
