The Bipolar Movie Challenge.

The video and the audio are from different movies. Try to identify them. (Warning: some bad language.)



ADDED: That was the second in a series. Here's the first:

7, 8, and 10

I could name the audio for a few more (and the video for # 9), but I think most of the other video clips were before my time.

Surprised to see/hear a Kevin Smith movie in the sequence, though.

I was surprised at how, in most cases, I got the audio first.

OT, since there is no Halloween thread yet on Althouse:

Piper the Princes and Trig the Elephant

Great photos of the two youngest Palin kids decked out in their Halloween getups. There is one of Trig I am trying to get, showing him sucking on his thumb.

This campaign and therefore this blog in recent weeks need not be acrimonious. Let's see the world through a child's eye just today.

Look at Piper.

Do you know what makes this photo of her so precious? It's like the "lick heard 'round the world". She takes a bumptious moment like listening to her mother giving a speech, and licks her palm, or crooks her foot askew, and immediately gives it a whole other level of preciousness.

Hey, guys, I miss the Althouse blog. Hope it can get back to usual, soon. Maybe Nov 5th. Happy Halloween! :)

Cheers,
Victoria

Tibore said...

Hehe... didn't Monty Python do something similar on their "Holy Grail" DVD? Enable the subtitles, and they most definitely do not follow what's being said on the screen.

Great joke on the viewer. I love it!

Ann Althouse said...

I've got to say that it was excruciating listening to the audio of "Sideways" again. I can't tell you how much I hate crap like that. Ugh!!!

blake said...

Yeah, I was going back and forth on #8 being "Election", but I don't recall that monologue. Also, I don't remember a Catholic school--but the reference to Tracy and Tammy, yeah, you're probably right.

Slap my forehead on the "Sideways" one: Duh.

Freeman Hunt said...

I'm going to raise my hand as perhaps the only person who thinks Donnie Darko rates as one of the most overrated films of all time.

Southbound Blues said...

I agree. Donnie Darko and Fight Club and the Boondock Saints.
At least, these are the most overrated by male undergraduates.

blake said...

I'm only going to disagree with you, Freeman, on the basis that a lot of people think Donnie Darko is shite.

I like it all right, but I put in a category like Crash. If the auteur is trying to get at some larger significance, I don't want to know. It works fine as a story.

blake said...

On the other hand, Fight Club is probably the greatest black comedy since Psycho.

Ann Althouse said...

I love "Fight Club." "Donnie Darko" ... I can do without.

Freeman Hunt said...

Same.

The Darko opinions here thus far are a pleasant surprise.

TMink said...

This was a blast. Thanks Ann, I had not seen this. My wife and I worked together on it. I am pretty good on the old movies, and she rules on 80s and 90s, but more recent stuff we are clueless on! The kids ya know.
