Movie Taglines Quiz - Part one

This article is about movie taglines. These are the short texts you’ll find on movie posters, you know the ones that will get stuck in your memory. Usually when I read a tagline, for some reason I hear the voice of Don Lafontaine (the king of movie trailer voice overs).  They can be funny, dramatic, weird or sometimes just very cool! So in this article we will bring homage to the movie tagline. Maybe we can even do a little Quiz? I’ll put down some of my favorite taglines in random order and maybe you can try to guess the movie…Let’s go!

Guess the Movie!

1. “Be afraid, be very afraid.”

2.  “One man’s struggle to take it easy”

3.  “An adventure 65 million years in the making...”

4. “If Nancy doesn’t wake up screaming, she won’t wake up at all.”

5.  “The first casualty of war is innocence.”

6.  “If at first you don’t succeed, lower your standards.”

7.  “Fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set you free”

8. “He’s having the worst day of his life…over and over.”

9. “It all ends here.”

10. “A motion picture destined to offend nearly two thirds of the civilized world. And severely annoy the other third.”

11. “What happens when make-believe, believes it’s real?”

12. “In Vietnam the wind doesn’t blow, it sucks”

13. “On every street in every city of this country, there is a nobody who dreams of being a somebody”

14. “The man with the hat is back. And this time, he's bringing his Dad.”

15. “Love never dies”

16. "One night is all that stands between them and freedom. But it's going to be a hell of a night.”

17. “Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...”

18. "Who will survive and what will be left of them?"

19. "In space no one can hear you scream."

20. "Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire."

    Wow! I love watching movies so I thought I would do way better at this quiz! I only got 1.5 right! (I'm giving myself 0.5 for Jaws II because I DID know it was a Jaws film, I just wasn't sure which one!). And of course I got Ground Hog Day because... I mean.... Bill Murray. I heart him. Thanks for the great quiz, I want more!

    I suck! I didn't even get one! But it's so great that you can even remember these famous lines! I can do the same for books, however. But I'm really not a movie person that's why I couldn't figure it out. More quizzes to go!

    OMG! I re-read all the taglines repeatedly and tried really hard in figuring even at least one. I didn't get anything right. Maybe it's not my movie genre or I'm just not good at remembering taglines. What I never forget though is "May the Force be with You." I'm 100% sure you know from what movie that's taken. Anyway, interesting post.

    Amazing!!!! I got 1 (O-N-E) . Honestly, I'm very bad with movie quotes. I might be able to guess more if they were from cheezy romantic movies. Luckily though, I was able to guess JAWS and I think I wouldn't forgive myself if I failed that :P
