LET’S PLAY A GAME

This started out as a game I played with my sister when we were younger and we actually still participate. To my delight, my friends have also picked up on the game. Basically, you use movie quotes or descriptions of movie situations to let people know how you’re feeling. Let’s try one:

“That was very interesting music Marty.”

This is from Back to the Future when Lorraine meets Marty after he plays some electric guitar. She’s being polite, but it’s clear she found his music a bit odd. My sister and I use this when we’re trying to be polite about something that we’re not too keen on. Sample usage: I try drawing my sister’s portrait and I show it to her… “That was very interesting music Marty.”

Let’s try another…

“Bacon tastes guuuud…”

This is from Pulp Fiction. John Travolta’s character is digging into some breakfast at a coffee shop when he says this. The way he says guuuuud is the key here. Sample usage: To be said before or during consumption of any tasty food item, does not have to be bacon. Can also be followed up with “Pork chops tastes guuuud…”

Now here’s a variation, it’s not a movie quote per se, but a description of movie situation…

I think I was moving in bullet-time…

This refers to the Matrix movies where bullet-time was a special effect that was used to a great degree of success. Here, one might say this if they thought they were moving with a great deal of speed, but at the same time, retaining great clarity and vision of the situation, eg. during a dodge ball game.

Ok, that one was really easy, but let’s try another one and this time, you try to figure out the movie and the context…

I’m about ready to chop my father’s hand off…

This one isn’t a direct movie quote, but certainly refers to a situation in a movie. If you can, name the movie and the general emotion one might be feeling if they were saying this.
