You Talkin’ To Me? – featuring: FilmHipster
Ever wondered how to respond to a question by a particular film character? Well, here’s your chance to find out what others have said. Inspired by a feature from Total Film magazine, I’ve decided to adapt some film quotes, that pose as questions to my fellow bloggers. This is my way of shedding some light on some great blogs out there and have a little fun at the same time. There are a different range of questions which will give the blogger the chance to either be offensive, defensive, serious, funny, surreal etc. It may prove difficult to come up with a answer but the whole point is to be as creative as possible.
In the crosshairs in this instalment is Chris Devine who runs the very productive and aesthetically pleasing blog:
Okay, let’s get started. The film quotes will be in bold with Chris’ answers underneath.
“Are ya daft lad!”
“You mind your place, or you’ll be wearin’ concrete galoshes.”
“How many times da I have to tell ya…the right tool for the right job!”
“No. You’ll flood the whole compartment.”
“All I can say is…they don’t make them like they used ta.”
“Laddie, I was drinking Scotch a hundred years before you were born. And I can tell you that whatever this is, it is definitely not Scotch.”
You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it’s me, I’m a little fucked up maybe, but I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I’m here to fuckin’ amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?
“Doctor, I’ve seen the captain feverish, sick, drunk, delirious, terrified, overjoyed, boiling mad… but up to now, I have never seen him red-faced with hysteria.”
“It fits like a glove, Captain.”
“I don’t have a clue.”
“Aye. And if my grandmother had wheels, she’d be a wagon.”
“Aye, the haggis is in the fire now for sure.”
“I’d rather not take sides.”
Many thanks to Chris for his involvement here and his clever use of quotes from the Scottish Star Trek character, Montgomery Scott. If you’ve not checked out his site please do so here. You’ll find a whole host of quality reviews in a different structure, as well as some very entertaining and involving features like Texting Tuesday’s, Hipster for a Day and Fueled by Film among many others. Thanks again Chris, and if anyone else would like a crack at these questions then let me know in the comments section and you could be in the crosshairs next.
