Thursday Thirteen # 19: Movie Moments

Thirteen Movie Moments Jen enjoys.

1. Auntie Mame- When she invites the horrible suburbanites over for drinks and has the crazy modern art sofas...and the flaming cocktails.

2. Four Weddings and a Funeral- The funeral is awful, but gets me every time when he reads the poem. It makes me want to like poetry.

3. Young Frankenstein- Almost any line from Marty Feldman in the first third of the movie. I can still probably recite them all.

4. Holy Grail- If I have to pick one spot I'll short circut, here, but the coconut shells and the whole Sir Robin bit. IF I have to choose.

5. Dude, Where's my Car?- I'm sorry. I know. It's awful. But the bit where they read the tattoos is just so totally a conversation you could overhear in California. It cracks me up. It's the left coast version of Who's on First.

6. Toy Story- When Woody leads the toys in the uprising against Syd.

7. Christmas Story- The tongue. The pole. bwahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

8. Sideways- Sandra Oh beans him with the helmet. None of this boo hoo my heart is broken--she is pissed.

9. Brigit Jones- Sliding down the pole into/onto the camera. That would SO happen to me.

10. Chocolat- The gypsy music was soooo catchy, but when I bought the soundtrack , there was only one song. I wanted to go live with those gypsies. Okay, THAT gypsy, but still.

11. Cool Hand Luke- After the egg contest, when they are thumping on Paul Newman's belly.

12. Flushed Away- If you haven't seen it, I am torn--not sure it's worth the price of admission to everyone, but the slugs are sooo worth it to ME!!!!

13. Pretty much any moment where the good guys win, regardless of how cheesy and obvious it was. I'm a sucker like that.

I think I need to get out and see more movies. I didn't know most of these!

Thanks for visiting my TT!

maggie said...

We haven't seen flushed away either but it is on the list. I love the part on Christmas Story with the tongue. LOL.

Jane said...

Great list. The scene from "Christmas Story" is a classic. I also love Young Frankenstein.
Thanks for coming by my T13.

Christie said...

Blonde Chick said...

Ok, I agree with MOST of those! Good post!

Melissa said...

Great list of movies! Haven't seen them all, but I watched Sideways the other day. Great, great scene by Sandra Oh!

bananas62 said...

You know for as many times as I have started A CHRISTMAS STORY, I've never finished it...SAD but TRUE!

Missy said...

I love this list. I've been thinking of doing one like this but am having a hard time choosing just thirteen moments. ;)

The "Mind" said...

Great list. I love Cool Hand Luke. I think it is my favorite Paul Newman movie.

And it amazes me, but each year, up here in the Great White North, some kid gets suckered into doing that. Be it a dare or a bet or just stupidity. And since I have boys I have drilled it into their heads NOT to do that.

ali said...

yes, yes, yes. the tongue!

Domestic Goddess said...

Chocolat was a great movie. Anything with Jonny Depp!

N. Mallory said...

I love Auntie Mame!

And I'm sorry to say that Dude, Where's My Car? is on my list of movies I like despite Bring It On or Dodgeball.

Great list! Happy TT!

Dane Bramage said...

I'm a sucker for cheesy "Good Triumphs over Evil" moments too.
My Thursday Thirteen #19 Fun Facts About Ohio
is up. Stop by if you get a chance.

Momish said...

How funny, I just listed Auntie Mame as one of my guilty pleasure movies on my TT. And, that scene is just classic Mame! I loved it. Agree with the others as well. Great list, we are on the same wave lenght, apparently!

crse said...

Oh my god the slugs were hilarious. And without ruining it, Ninja toad mime. I love this list. You continue to inspire my listing my friend!

Pippajo said...

That scene in Auntie Mame is priceless! I LOVE that scene! The one with the jingling bracelet is pretty funny too.

And the Holy Grail, I totally geek out about that one too. My personal fave is Brother Maynard and the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch! Gets me every time!

Great list! And by the way, The Viking was surfing around the other night, checking out where I've been spending all my time online, and I came running in when I heard him laughing so hard he was shaking. Guess what he was reading? Your blog! He thinks you're hilarious! I'm so jealous!

Happy TT!
