I thought it would be kind of cool to have a trivia thread of sorts involving movie tag lines. For those that don't know what a tag line is a tag line is the sentence or two on box art or posters that entices you see the movie. No I don't mean "From the Director of..." or "Great...Fun!" Here's an example:
Quote:
A family comedy without the family

That being the tag line for Home Alone.

When somebody gets one right they get to post the next tag line and so on.
All right. Now that we understand, I'll start with one of my favorites:
Quote:
He's not Freddy. He's not Jason. He's REAL.

Good Luck

That'd be Agent Cody Banks .

Here's one for you:

"Old theatres are irreplaceable. They could never be duplicated at today's costs - but more importantly, their spirit could not be duplicated because they remind us of a day when going to the show was a more glorious and escapist experience. I think a town's old theatres are the sanctuary of...

Since Jason didn't post a new one, I guess I will to keep things moving.

Videodrome


They can hear a cloud pass overhead...
The rhythm of your blood...
They can track you by yesterday's shadow...
They can tear the scream from your throat.
No shirt

Prey For The Hunters
