Off the top of my head...

My fave Coen film, O Brother Where Art Thou

No idea on this one, though there's a certain Woody Allen tone to it...

> * What's your name, dude?

I'm guessing Back To the Future Part 3.

Again, very vague memory of this one because I fell asleep in the cinema
(booze not boredom.) Still, you make take our lands, and you may take
our hearts, but you'll never take our popcorn!

Jaguar's earlobes... wolf's nipple chips. Get 'em whilst they're hot!
