Need to get somewhere in a hurry? The bus might not always be the best bet. But if you want to sit back and enjoy the highway scenery, what better mode of transportation is there? Just look at the fun people you get to ride with!

I’ll set the bar at low for now to give everyone else a chance, right?
1. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
8. Carry on Camping
17. The Specialist
20. Running on Empty
21. To Sir With Love
22. In the Mouth of Madness
25 Midnight Cowboy
Very sporting of you! 6/8. A good start.
Did I ever tell you about how when I gave my last lecture on film one of the girls in class stood up and sang about how if I wanted the sky she would write the sky in letters? True story. I was moved to tears.
Your last lecture in film? Was that during the silent era? Hahahaha!
Will be back later to finish off any stragglers.
I think it was one of the ones you missed. When are you graduating? Is that coming up?
Later this month. Got my deliverables in. I’m delivering the keynote speech. Great chance for you to learn something a revive your own threadbare presentation. Apparently no-one attended your King John lecture and your Charlie Chan course has been banned. Again.
Fraggle and I wanted to attend. We’re so excited for you. I mean, how long has it been? Twenty-five years? But you stuck it out and now you’re ready to take on the world!
Hahah, no, this isn’t like how you got stuck in 8th grade. This is like when Maverick gets invited to teach at Top Gun! The best of the best! Dead Poets Society! Will be great to see you and fraggle, two faces in the crowd, although your face is more of a melted Halloween cake variety. She’s coming in a Bonnie and Clyde costume, what will you be wearing? Charlie Chan suit? King John cosplay?
*sigh* After all the strings I pulled, and donations I made, for them to finally give up and grant you your degree. Such ingratitude.
No, I’m the teacher. Remember that lady that made you pick your rubber dinosaurs off the floor of the library? Helped you color in Top Cat’s waistcoat? I’m like her. I help people like you. People who have no talent, hope or dignity.
Just because you had to give a seminar talk doesn’t make you a teacher. Is that what they told you? I mean, building self-esteem is good, but not at the price of fostering delusions of that magnitude.
I have my full teaching qualification, Bunty. What have you got, a crayon drawing of Charlie Chan? King John transfers?
I’m not sure your teaching “qualifications” are accepted outside of the Strathblane District School Board. But for running a daycare you might be able to substitute in a pinch. Just make sure the kids get lots of junket and none of them go missing.
Sigh. Have you not got bins to do, Bunty?
Just heading out now!
Oh, forgot, 2 is The Last King of Scotland.
How could you forget that I’m the king of Scotland? I’m your liege.
No, the film is, you’re the Last Queen of Canada hahahahahaha
How can a movie be your sovereign? I was acclaimed at Scone and lofted on a shield held by the chiefs of all the clans.
My middle name is Stuart. Making me Edward Stuart, as in the direct line to Bonnie Prince Charlie. Will be heading the Scots in rebellion against the English if I can work the dates around Fraggle’s ear-sucking appointments. No laughing matter…
Sounds like you’re the Pretender. But that’s allowed. We are amused. We may even keep you with our jugglers and our dwarves as court entertainment.
Young Pretender. That is me. Maybe we will call you Hop Toad and keep you in a cage and pelt you with cabbages. If you are lucky.
And 11 is Valerian and the city of a thousand planets
You’re up to 8.
I’ll be back, but pretty sure 23 is Parasite.
16 – The Truman Show?
Wow. I’m struggling with this one. Not sure for 3. Charlie Chan at the Circus? Pierrot la Fou? Mars Attacks? If it’s any of those, I get double points.
8 – Ride the Pink Horse? That’s all I got.
You got the numbers mixed up. 7 is Ride the Pink Horse. Impressed at that one!
Doesn’t even look like Demi Moore…
Wasn’t too surprised you pulled a blank on it. I mean critical acclaim, foreign film, Best Picture winner . . . I figured there was no chance you would have heard of it.
Oh, yeah, the reboot of Parasite did not have the same magic…
I’ll try to find some VHS rips from one of the Video Nasties for the next quiz.
6. is “Torn Curtain” and 24. is “The Fury”.
Both right, Chandler! I was worried The Fury pic was too dark.
