The man likes to play chess; let's get him some rocks.

Stolen from la Bella-Stella ... a little game, play along with me!

The Rules
Pick fifteen of your favourite movies.
Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
Post them here for everyone to guess which movie they came from.
Strike it out when someone guesses correctly in the comments, and put who guessed it and the movie.
Ok here we go ... 15 movies, all favourites, go on, have a guess!
1. The man likes to play chess; let's get him some rocks. The Shawshank Redemption - My favourite movie of all time, it was always going to be in there - answered by Ms Mac
2. He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp, or to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken. To have his kneecaps split, and his body burned away, and his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin. His head smashed in and heart cut out, and his liver removed, and his bowels unplugged, and his nostrils raped and his bottom burned off and his penis... Monty Python and the Holy Grail - answered by FatBoyFat
3. There will be no rescue, no intervention for us. We can only save ourselves. Many of you know influential people abroad, you must call these people. You must tell them what will happen to us... say goodbye. But when you say goodbye, say it as if you are reaching through the phone and holding their hand. Let them know that if they let go of that hand, you will die. We must shame them into sending help. Hotel Rwanda - answered by David.
4. Stand tall, boy. Have some respect for yourself. Don't you know if you let people walk over you now, they'll be walking over you for the rest of your life! Look at me. You think I'm gonna spend the rest of my life in this slop house?
5. And you: friendless, brainless, helpless, hopeless! Do you want me to send you back to where you were? Unemployed in Greenland! The Princess Bride - answered by Alison. "Inconceivable!"
6. Dammit, woman, if you don't get out of this car and go to your kid, I'm going to have you arrested... for stupidity. Double Jeopardy - answered by Kari
7. Stephen is my name. I'm the most wanted man on my island. Except I'm not on my island, of course. More's the pity. Your island? You mean Ireland. Yeah. It's MINE. Answered by Monica - who didn't leave an address ~ oh Monica, I'd have come to visit ;o)
8. Adam, you're my eldest brother. Now I've always looked up to ya, tried to ape ya. But today I'm ashamed of you. Now I know you can lick me, lick the tar outta me! But I wouldn't hold myself no kinda man unless I showed ya how I felt! Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - answered by Fizzy
9. Now just what does that mean to you? Tannis. Raiders of the lost Ark - answered by Ms Mac
10. Chewing gum helps me think. Sweetie, you're wasting your gum! The birdcage - answered by Alison who is absolutely right "one of the funniest movies of all time."
11. Why do you keep calling me Jésus? Do I look Puerto Rican to you? Guy back there called you Jésus. He didn't say Jésus. He said, "Hey, Zeus!" My name is Zeus. Zeus? Yeah, Zeus! As in, father of Apollo? Mt. Olympus? Don't fuck with me or I'll shove a lightning bolt up your ass? Zeus! You got a problem with that? No, I don't have a problem with that. Die Hard with a Vengeance - I can't let you talk yourself away from the right answer Andy
12. But Mama, the men she finds. The last one was so old and he was bald. He had no hair. A poor girl without a dowry can't be so particular. You want hair, marry a monkey.
13. You like boats, but not the ocean. You go to a lake in the summer with your family up in the mountains. There's a long wooden dock and a boathouse with boards missing from the roof, and a place you used to crawl underneath to be alone. You're a sucker for French poetry and rhinestones. You're very generous. You're kind to strangers and children, and when you stand in the snow you look like an angel. Groundhog Day - answered by Ms Mac ... you're on such a roll!
14. Someone has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly boy. Star Wars - answered by Ms Mac
15. Don't tell me. The offside rule is when the French mustard has to be between the teriyaki sauce and the sea salt. Bend it like Beckham - answered by Ms Mac

I was just about to give up then got to no 11, its one of the die hards, the one with whatshisname, I dont want to go look it up that will be cheating, it will come to me, hang on, he is in everything, black guy, mace windu, not daniel day lewis, ummm, Samuel L Jackson, aarrgh my brain hurts, do I actually have to name the film now?

On second thoughts it might not be a die hard, it was probably that one called last boy scout, its deffo Bruce Willis though!
