''You got 11 out of 12'' Did you get them all right or were you distracted by the intense Shatner stare? I got # 10 wrong because I said it was Nipsey Russell when it was really Flip Wilson. I clicked too fast.

Friday Night Movie Quiz

They say that the Human Species never fails to surprise one. This iconic movie stands as one of them. From the past of great movies, actors and sensational non-fictional re-creation of an important events comes this Block-Buster with a cast of giants. Once this gets a going you are in it for the duration. No matter your thoughts, ideas you may own. This will go down in your memory as one of the best showings thanks to those who performed this exceptional cinema. You will laugh, scream and carry on while these characters go toe to toe with one another. You will see humans and what they believed in do some inane things as this movie draws down to a close. No matter such Idiotism of those involved they do it well. Who will blink, who will satisfy those in attendance. Most likely both will get their ovations for one reason or another. So mark this down as a movie not to be missed. Even after the half dozen times you've seen it. Those in front of the camera have played in so many great movies and TV Shows of the past. Director one of the best ever.

Besides a bonus movie I will be doing at random a SNL show in which I have hundreds. I will start with one from the first year 1975. If you would like them in order from the start I can do that also.

The Truth About Mother - Psycho (11/12) Movie CLIP (1960) HD.



Born----Born---- Born to be alive-World Disco Championships 1979.


Dom Deluise's Egg Trick Does Not Go As Planned - Carson Tonight Show - 09/26/1974.


Johnny Angel Shelley Fabares.


Your bonus movie today is none other then Sherlock Holmes. It is one of my favorites. Full of excitement, laughs, crime, unusual circumstances with great back ground music. 7.6 IMDb.
Sherlock Holmes (2009) 2 hr 8 min

Robert Downey Jr
Jude Law
Rachel McAdams
Mark Strong

SNL S01 E06-Lily Tomlin/Howard Shore & the All Nurse Band. Live from New York, it's... Sketches include "Gerald Ford Addresses the Nation," "Beethoven Sings My Girl," Jaws III, "Edith Ann On Ice," "Spud Beer," "How To Harass Men," "Beethoven's Second," "The Clumsy Bellhop and the Interracial Couple," "Suzy Forgives Patty Hearst," "Beethoven as Ray Charles," and "Skred In Love" (Muppets). Jaws III is pretty funny along with the rest of the show.

I think my internet messed up last Friday so I didn’t see your last two comments, but I’m seeing them now (I think I forgot what we were talking about 😆) but anyways, so your posting Cleopatra on your quiz next Friday? Awesome! (The reason I sound confused is, at the time if didn’t know if you were posting on this quiz or the next. 😆 anyways I’m caught up now 😄)
texasluva lynngdance 30 days ago
No problem. Yes I am posting Cleopatra. You may have to click arrow twice and wait 20 seconds or so then it should play. I just tested it on my Tablet (which is not the fasted in the world). It played and was in at least HD. Plays on my PC and If I want I can Chromecast to TV just fine. I am keeping fingers crossed because the person whom uploaded it has posted like 300+ totally awesome movies. When the web site finds out (there are millions on it so who knows when) they might delete his uploads. There is no penalty for watching or saving it to your favorites on site. I have so many movies it is beyond belief. I am happy to share with MeTV posters. That is why sometimes you see the movie in some type of code name. The quiz movie will be another monster in the 8.0 range of IMDb. My lips are sealed though on that one
texasluva lynngdance 30 days ago
Yes. Because I was so busy answering others I did not get back to your question of funny and serious so I posted it much later. So when you read it probably days later and what is that boy talking bout . I try to get to everyone's questions and answers but a few slip by. It's the fast and the furious and sometimes I am LMAO and that slows me down . See ya Friday
