Name that Film: Special Recall Edition!! - Arnold Movies

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER was born with a bicuspid aortic valve (a valve with only 2 leaflets, 3 being par for the course) on July 30th, 1947 into a staunch Roman Catholic household in Austria. Growing up in a little village with big visions, ideas and ambitions, Schwarzeneggermoved to the United States in September 1968 at the age of 21, speaking little English. Steve Reeves was his idol.

"My accent was very bad, and my accent was also very strong, which was an obstacle as I began pursuing acting..."

(Hey Arnold! Not you!!!)

He served one year service time in the army in 1965, as was the requirement of all 18 year old Austrian males, winning Junior Mr. Europe the very same year, before going AWOL during basic training to take part in the competition. He spent a week in the slammer for insubordination, crowned as a king, and still to be considered one of the most famous immigrant's to ever land in this country. E-merry-ca...vut a country! Mix a marriage...marry a Kennedy.

The 38th governor of Cali-forn-nia became a self-made man from less than ashes, and began weight training at the age of 15 to win Mr. U @ 22! He also went on to win Mr. Olympia 7X's and was referred to as "THE AUSTRIAN OAK" by none other than the Incredible Hulk. Can you imagine the dynamics? Refer to Pumping Iron.

Now, to determine what could be more irregular...mentally thumb wrestle the country's appetite for action in the 80's with Tom Brokaw at a tennis tournament.

I'm in show business.....why would I test myself under torture in the greatest country in the verld? Typical liberal giveaway speaking in bad puns...handed down as ancient dialect...we hope to bestow nothing but good fortune knowing we've seen our last action hero for the time being...though, we do hope you enjoy the show.

Judgment Day. Arnold said he began the pursuit of weight training to learn more about the power of the mind over the body. (Cleansing breath...aaaand...release!) You are a placid sea turtle in a land of make believe. Steer clear. Have no fear. Sylvester Stallone will play you in the movie. Unannounced to the Film Edition, "R-nuld" was voted best built man of Europe, the category somehow escaping, despite which lent fame instantaneously and offered the illustrious passport to America-the land of opportunity, where Arnold would have the hunger to be more than just a contender...he was a star and about to get rich

This is a success story of a character who happens to be exuberant.

If technological issues weren't so rampart I would spew more about a businessman, politician, & the original Conan now called the governator, but the computer needs cleaning, so I bid farewell....

Thanks to Blood for an outstanding intro to this week's edition, as always. Yes, this week is all about the Governator! All of the following quotes are taken out of the mouth of Arnold, directly from one of his movies. Your job, if you choose to accept, is to read the quotes (in your best Arnold accent) and try to name the movie it came from. Simple as always! Remember, this isn't brain surgery!

Blood-N-Bolts Productions wishes you good luck and thanks you for playing Name that Film!!!

1. "I once showed them, in the Olympics in Greece, how to do it."

2. "I work alone. If anyone comes to you and claims that I sent them.....use this."

3. "Nice day for a walk."

4. "Well then, get in a start paddling!"

5. "Hello Cutie Pie. One of us is in deep trouble."

6. "I did nothing. The pavement was his enemy."

7. "Bring the toy back to the carpet."

8. "How exactly are you going to snap your fingers, after I rip off both of your thumbs?"

9. "You know what you guys are? Nothing but a bunch of sleazy con men, in red suits!"

10. "At 30,000 feet, your heart will freeze and beat no more."

(Sorry, wrong Arnold again)

Let's see those answers! Check back throughout the next couple of days to find out where all 10 quotes came from. It's easy to remember, just before you leave our site, just look at the monitor and say, "I'll be back." Okay, that was a bit corny.

See you next week and thanks for playing Name that Film!!!

By the way...check out the blood blog at, http://blood-thebloodblog.blogspot.com/. He is wrapping up his series on "the blues". It's great stuff! Enjoy!

Name that Film: John Hughes; belleofsavannah Edition!!!

-This is my house, I have to defend it!

John Hughes died of a heart attack while taking a walk last week in New York City. He was an influential writer and director of such acclaimed hits as, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles", "The Breakfast Club" and "Mr. Mom" always keeping in the spirit of advocating for the underdog and those less than graceful, like a coming of age Molly Ringwald in 16 Candles. This week's edition will be a tribute idea from a southern belle honoring a legacy that holds all pertinent information in the spotlight for others to see.

Mr. Hughes was 59.

Teen angst! It can't be a dream! How can X number of people have the same dream?Ask every question. We tell no lies. This information must leave this room. Ok? It would devastate my reputation as a dude otherwise. This could be Christmas or another season of perpetual hope and light. You remember laughter? Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun. I don't care if I have to get out on your main street and scribe. If it costs the Film Edition everything we own, if we have to sell two souls to the devil himself, we are going to highlight this idea. You only get one life...

I'm being honest __________, I would expect you to know the difference. How 'bout a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray? Everything is not an anecdote and discrimination must always be about choice and a level of awareness. You choose things that are loving or amusing or interesting and often forget...you're a miracle! I know.

It goes to show. Ask anyone you know...how many rings in the ancient oak? This edition is about stay puff glow. Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Listen...

"Honey, I'd like you to meet ____________, who's got some amusing anecdotes for you..."

I expect a doll to have a little string on the chest, you know, that I ken pull out and have to snap it back with a rush.

...few...that was fun! Can I borrow your underpants for ten minutes? We had a small fire last night , but we caught it in the nick of time.

You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. Kenny, don't paint your sister!

Would you guys please hurry up, I'm breaking like 30 major laws here. If "they" told you wolverines would make good house pets, would you believe "them"? Naw, course not! You would chuckle and mention sucking the marrow and cackle like a harmless pirate, or perhaps a tomboy who played the drums.

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Oh yea?

How 'bout this....you should see the toast, I couldn't even get it thru the door! I'm pretty sure the sausage king of Chicago if I'm not mistaken is...Abe Froman? U go then and sail it toward a shore. I guess this is probably a good time as any to tell you this. I yelled at Kenny for coloring outside the lines! Megan and I are starting to watch the same TV shows and I'm liking 'em! I'm looooosing it! You know everyone in this family has gone total outer limits. Come to think of it...we're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

No more yankie my wankie. The Donger need food. Maybe I have malaria?

Where are your hands?

Between two pillows...

Those aren't pillows!

Yeah. 220... 221, whatever it takes. Those are the breaks. Habits come hard. This one I couldn't quite fake...you couldn't score her in a million years. Perhaps a little mood music? Danke Schoen...I totally understand that you little guys start out with your woobies and you think they're great... and they are, they're terrific. But pretty soon, a woobie isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score an electric blanket, or maybe a quilt...next thing you know, you're strung out on bedspreads.
That's serious torture and blame, which leads to shame. Games, Jake. Silly torturous games. You know how many times I've gone without lunch because some _________ borrows my lunch money? Any halfway decent girl can rob me - blind! Because I'm too torked up to say no. It's heinous, I'm telling you. I get so shook up and want desperately to initiate change with vibration because of such vast numbers & the baby boom, bang and the theory beyond. This sound travels out from the ground.

And another thing...

A. You ken never go to far

B. If anyone's getting busted, it's not gonna be by a chump.

"I always preferred to hang out with the outcasts, 'cause they were cooler; they had better taste in music, for one thing, I guess because they had more time to develop one with the lack of social interaction they had!" -John Hughes

Let's hope when you do finally grow up, your heart never dies...

Thank you blood for that tremendous tribute to a great film maker, and man. Now, let's get on with our game since I already made us late!

Directions: Read the following quotes and guess what John Hughs films they came from.

Blood-N-Bolts Productions sincerely hope that you have an enjoyable time playing our game and that you will show up again next week for our next edition of Name that Film!!! Good luck!!!

1. "Irv, are these Kotex Maxi Pads on special?"

2. "He humiliated my human decency!"

3. "Hey Howard, there's your Chinaman."

4. "Screws fall out all the time. The world's an imperfect place."

5. "My father loves this car more than life itself."

6. "Kids are stupid. I know I was."

7. "This is going to be the very last time that I try to marry you."

8. "She's into Malaka's Dino."

9. "Her first baby...came out sideways. She didn't scream or nothing."

10. "What is that? Dirty Dancing?"

Alright everyone, I think this will go faster than normal, so let's get to guessing!!! By the way, my summer vacation is over and I have to go back to work. This year, I cannot access my blog at work, so my answers will be delayed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks again to blood for his wonderful intro. Also, thanks to Beverly aka Athensspeedwayan and belleofsavannah for the suggestion to do a tribute to John Hughes! Keep those ideas coming everyone! See you next week!

The Tweating's On The Wall For Chargers Cromartie

The Chargers have a lot of decisions to make after this season. I believe that Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Shawne Merriman, Jamal Williams, Darren Sproles, and Antonio Cromartie are all playing on the last year of their contracts. There is no way that A.J. Smith can, or will, sign all of them. Therefore, this season will be very important for all of these players. How they play on the field, and how they behave off the field will be what helps Smith, the Chargers General Manager, decide who stays and who goes.
Some of this list seem like a no-brainer. You have to pick up Rivers. He was the top rated passer in the league last year. Maybe there are better quarterbacks, but you don't have one of them. The Chargers simply must pay the man.

Shawne Merriman is expected to be slapped with the franchise tag for the next season or two, and then let go. Smith will not pay Merriman what he will demand and has not lead anyone to believe otherwise. In fact, the maturation of first round pick Larry English will have a lot to do with how long they keep Merriman.
Jamal Williams and Antonio Gates are dominant at their positions and when healthy make the Chargers chances of winning go way up. However, health has been a huge concern for both of these players in recent years. It would not be a shock to see Smith go another direction, at least with Williams.

As for Sproles, he is not the only one who is in control of his future with the team. As this year's franchise tagged player, a lot will depend on two things. 1. How well does Sproles play this year? And 2. How well does LaDainian Tomlinson play this year. If L.T. slips further down in production and is not healthy when the post season comes around, they can't afford to let Sproles go.

That brings us to Antonio Cromartie. I'm sure that you heard that Cromartie was just fined $2500 for blasting the Chargers "nasty" food on Twitter. He went so far as to say that the food may be the reason they didn't win the Super Bowl yet! Huh? Okay, maybe he was joking, but I won't let him off so easy.

Let's take a look at some of the decisions Cromartie has made in the last few years, along with how he has played.

A. Cromartie had 10 picks in the regular season, just two years ago.

B. Cromartie only managed two picks last year after predicting 15 before the season. He was torched many all season long, including an 18 catch performance by Bronco, Brandon Marshall in week two.

C. He waited until the end of the season to let people know that he fractured his hip during the Broncos game in week two and it never was right. Now, shouldn't he have been upfront with his injuries and let a healthy guy step in? All he did by being brave was make everyone think he was a one year wonder.

D. Cromartie fatherd seven kids across five different states. Enough said.

E. Now, Cromartie has gotten himself in trouble for negative tweats about his employer. I know he may have been joking, but he has no room to joke. He said today that his freedom of speech has been taken away. Sorry Antonio, very few of us can publically rip our employers without consequence.

F. Furthering his image, his Twitter screen name is "Crimetime31". If your read his Twitter page, you will see that Cromartie Tweats about everything but football. Merriman, Williams, and Phillips constantly talk about working out and working hard to get better. Yes, Merriman has had his verbal war with Ocho-Cinco, but for the most part, he seems to be focused. Cromartie talks about girls, partying, and bad food. That does not go far toward helping A.J. Smith desire to keep him as a representitive of the Chargers. The Bolts have been embarrassed enough over the last few years. Smith will have no more of it.

So, the way I see it, unless Cromartie puts up "stupid" numbers this year, it will be bye bye to Crimetime and he will be sent on his way to act like a fool somewhere else.

Name that Film: Miscellaneous Edition!

Various traits dealing with a diverse subject matter brings the Film Edition to a category neatly filed under the heading entitled "Miscellaneous". It's like the junk drawer...only worse as the borders are not bound to be square. Did you know 90% of all tires on the road are under inflated and badly in need of repair?

Go about your business and try not to stare. There will be no pointing and loud noises are COMPLETELY out of the question. You will find an excess of hot air almost everywhere without any real exertion, which leads to about two billion gallons of gas wasted annually and a whole lot more scraps and skirmishes than completely necessary. Seymour Grime does not have the time nor inclination for conventional methods, which is precisely why I agreed to take on this here case (a bit temperamental I see...artistic?).

A random venture into the wild? Why not. Required to furnish the assignment will include miscellaneous items such as but not limited to: a working latrine, a paperback dictionary should suffice in any open forum, as would a six pack of Dos Equis brown (stay thirty my friends!) of which I will share half, an adequate dose of vitamin c...dealer choice and finally a piece of parchment and sharpened pencil. It seems I've come upon the sniffles...a portable 8 track would also fit nicely if you had a free copy of Billy Cobham's "Spectrum" for the busy peoples passing by...if you lean in close you might even catch that steady streaming beating pulse...but completely unnecessary if you're in a pinch for tunes.

Some people feel the amount of noise generated by a change is in direct proportion to the complexities of the change so there becomes a city called Rome on every continent. Everything reportedly found on the web is miscellaneous...and...X is the new Y. Hadn't you heard?

Yes, this was not in the original contract but I think therefore I am. "I am" being the shortest complete sentence known to Man...but we shouldn't let that stop us. There are dust particles perched where we sit upon us made from dead skin that hand gels just can't touch...but it don't accumulate ta too much...not like the junk drawer...that's gut miscellaneous change some Canadian, mini nail clippers, and out-date coupons...which is akin to an average arrangement of assorted flowers in assorted shapes and sizes, like miscellaneous faces of a crowd in disguise, a variety of ingredients in a recipe or disjointed parts without regard; this law does not make a choice of provisions...it just is.

Transparency juss may be the new objectivity if we remember to pass out the correct vials. Don't worry...this list shall remain anonymous and the currents of information will rise and fall like the tide depending on your perspective.

Did you know more people are killed annually by donkeys than die in plane crashes? 'Round here, they take that jackass thing seriously.

Color my world Crayola, who could wrap around this world 4 times over with all their crayons constructed annually, never mind since I was a kid. If the time would become available, I'd like to teach the world to sing, if for only the chance to be free...incidentally, there is a suicide attempt nearly once a week at Niagara Falls, which leads the Film Edition by the hand carefully away with averted eyes.

I'll take Purgatorio for tree thousand.

The game of snakes and ladders was created by what 13th century poet saint?

What is...Gyandev? The ladders represented virtues and the snakes indicated vices. The game was played-

I beg your pardon sir...that shall suffice!

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog uses every letter of the alphabet. No one ken lick their own elbow and most people fear spiders more than death.

Life is a complete sentence for any thinking and feeling individual.

Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian and sported just one testicle so anything is truly possible if you make it happen. Be leery of any month that starts on a Sunday which will surely sport a Friday that falls on the 13th, which could leave everything to the imagination but it may just be running away with me? Coca Cola would be green if they didn't color it and know that if you go 18 days, 21 hours and 40 minutes in a rocking chair reportedly listening to nothing but the Blues, you will induce hallucinations, slurred speech, memory lapse, blurred vision and a deep sense of paranoia but don't lose any sleep over it...no piece of square dry paper ken be folded more than 7 times in half.

Willie Dixon was the 7th son and this sure has been fun, I'm glad you asked...


Well, thanks to blood for another amazing intro to our game this week. It's amazing what the lack of thought can force us to think about. We had no theme this week, so instead you get the miscellaneous ramblings that are all inteded and aimed at the same goal. Pretty deep huh?
Now for our game. This week's quotes could be from any movie in history. The way we see it, if you are not locked into a genre, you may not get them all, but you may not miss them all either.

So, read the quotes below and figure out what movie they came from. If you are right, I will let you know and add your clip as soon as possible.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy, this week's edition of Name that Film!!!

1. "Mom, that salesman's on tv."

2. "Thou we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid."

3. "My life is worth more that a piece of film."

4. "Oh who gives a damn? Stealing all my Oreos, crapping all over the place."

5. "In here?.......Doom."

6. "Do you want the Lord to watch me kick your ass?"

7. "No thank you. I take it black....like my men."

8. "Learn it. Know it. Live it."

9. "I killed your little brother, Moreno. But just remember, he's dead because you weren't looking out for him."

10. "If I wasn't in uniform, I'd split your skull with the butt of this revolver, faster than you could say police brutality."


11. "I strangled him. His body is decomposing in my locker."

Let's see those answers! Remember to check back later if you don't know the movies. Someone will get them and if not, I will leave clues for the really hard ones.

Thanks for playing and see you next Tuesday!!

By the way, Blood-N-Bolts Productions has been running this game for quite a long time now and ideas are running thin. If you have a bright idea for an edition of our game, chime in and we will use it if we can. We'll even name it after you! Thanks!!!!

Just for fun....see if you can name the movies that the pics came from!
