  1. I'm not sure of the third quote, but I'd get the first 2 quotes anytime. Mrs Wolf's response, upon seeing this movie, was not what I'd expected. "Is that Ornella Muthy? What's she doing there?"
  2. Ok, I'll end this round. This was Nena's "99 Red Balloons." She was a German singer who wrote "99 Luftballons" in German. It was such a hit that she wrote an English version of the song. It was a hit, but not as big as the original song. (Technically, the English version didn't "chart", but it got a LOT of airplay.) This was from 1983, so I didn't break my rule for myself of not picking anything after 1985. For now, FREE POST.
  3. *lightbulb* "WONDER WOMAN 1980-something"
  4. So, it is T-Bone's turn to post a still-shot from a movie, and for us to guess the movie.
  5. "You and I in a little toy shop Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got. Set them free at the break of dawn 'Til one by one, they were gone. Back at base, bugs in the software Flash the message, "Something's out there!" "Panic bells, it's Red Alert. There's something here from somewhere else.

This is what we've waited for. This is it, boys, this is war! The
  6. YES. The first quote was about V, and the third quote was V. As for the 2nd, that's too hard to explain without giving away a lot of the movie.
  7. "My fellow Englishmen: tonight, our country, that which we stand for, and all we hold dear, faces a grave and terrible threat. This violent and unparalleled assault on our security will not go undefended. Or unpunished. Our enemy is an insidious one, seeking to divide us and destroy the very foundation of our great nation. Tonight, we must remain steadfast. We must remain determined. But most of all, we must remain united. Those caught tonight in violation of curfew will be considered in league with our enemy and prosecuted as a terrorist without leniency or exception. Tonight, I give you my m

  9. Next movie. "My fellow Englishmen: tonight, our country, that which we stand for, and all we hold dear, faces a grave and terrible threat. This violent and unparalleled assault on our security will not go undefended. Or unpunished. Our enemy is an insidious one, seeking to divide us and destroy the very foundation of our great nation.

  10. "Panic bells, it's Red Alert. There's something here from somewhere else.

  11. *looks all of that over* This definitely looks up my alley. Perhaps "justifieth" is more apt than "avengeth". in this instance.
  12. "99 knights of the air ride super-high-tech jet fighters. Every one's a super-hero, every one's a Captain Kirk. "With orders to identify, to clarify and classify. Scramble in the summer sky"
  13. " Instead of participating?" In this round, if you posted his entire filmography and what role he played in each movie, I'd have been forced to throw up my hands, unable to answer. I've heard of Joe Kennedy (the family patriarch, if I have the correct Joe, JFK's dad, and so on), and "Tom Buchanan" is a character in "The Great Gatsby" (assigned reading in high school.) BTW, I'm not THAT young, and we've all seen movies that the others here have NOT seen. I prefer to focus on what I think the other players can answer- which, of course, is no guarantee is what the other pla
  14. Next song. 99 knights of the air ride super-high-tech jet fighters. Every one's a super-hero, every one's a Captain Kirk."
  15. Jennifer Garner 13 Going On 30 Andy Serkis
  16. *looks him up and disqualifies himself* I've never seen ANY of his movies. I've barely heard his name.
  17. Um, "Dora the Explorer something something"????
  18. A lot of actors showed up in "LOVE AMERICAN STYLE."
  19. Ok, the other quotes may have sounded familiar, but I've thought that and never seen the movie. That last quote is definitely "Star Trek 3- the Search for Spock."
  20. With 20/20 hindsight, we know the difference NOW, But, at the time, I would have found an openly eclectic approach a selling=point. Of course, vpw was busy trying to convince people that the ONLY place to get answers was twi, so he went in the opposite direction. BTW, it would have been a better con if vpw had understood everything Stiles, Bullinger and Leonard had taught. He mashed together what he understood, and deprecated what he didn't understand.
  21. Ok. The wrestling part rang a bell. *thinks* 80s music.....David Byrne.... This is the Talking Heads doing "Wild Life."
  22. The pfal Foundational class was billed as "foundational." It would be more fair to the material to point out that the class is a mix of material from BG Leonard's class, Bullinger's books ("How To Enjoy the Bible" early on, "Gifts of the Holy Spirit" later on) abd Stiles' "Gifts of the Spiirit" book, along with a few things tossed in here and there. Then it should look a little disjointed- because it IS. Look- I'm an eclectic. I LIKE the idea of drawing from diverse backgrounds. That's a SELLING POINT to me- you did the work and are trying to get the best, or the most rele
