Forgotten Flix Weekly Update and Movie Trivia: 1/02/2012

by Joel G. Robertson

With the start of a new year, I thought I’d change things up a bit.

So, the “Coming Soon” posts are now a weekly update letting you know what movie we’ll discuss in our next recording (so you have a week to watch it and call in!). Also, you’ll get a reminder about the movie we’re covering in THIS week’s show.

And for all you move trivia buffs, you’ll get a random movie quote from a movie star, director, or some other famous, movie maker type. Leave your best guess in the comments section. If you get your answer in before the following Monday (and it’s a correct answer, of course), we’ll mention you in the next episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast!

Coming Soon to The Forgotten Flix Podcast

Here’s a sneak peek at the movie we’re talking about for the next recording of The Forgotten Flix Podcast.

Movie Quote of the Week:

Who said:

Never do anything you wouldn’t want to be caught dead doing.

Here’s a hint: The legendary Actor who said it was talking to his actor son. Oh, and it’s ironic as hell!

Special thanks to Kevin Bachelder of the Tuning Into Sci-Fi TV Podcast who suggested we send out a weekly update about the next movie we’re covering.

    Is it “The Long Riders”?

      That’s a big negative ghost rider. : ) It’s actually a quote from a real person, not a character. Give it another try!

        Sorry, I was confused. I thought since it was the “Movie” quote of the week, that it was from a movie. Still, great job to Peter for getting it right.

        • January 6, 2012 at 7:40 pm

          Hi Shannon! No worries and any confusion was my fault. I agree with you that calling it a movie quote would lend folks to believe it’s a line from a movie. Therefore, I’ll make sure next week’s quote is exactly that! Thanks!

      It’s actually easy. Just think of the worst possible position to be found dead in. Now think of the actor found that way.

    Oh, the irony of this quote… šŸ™‚

    Oh and btw? I DO know the answer and I know YOU know that I know, I’m just letting everyone else in on the fun…

    • January 3, 2012 at 5:38 pm

      Well, what’s your guess? : )

    Looking forward to your Podcast about The Last Dragon. It is truly a classic with a massive cult following. Sho’nuff is one of the Greatest Villians of all-time.

    “who’s the master!?!”

    • January 3, 2012 at 3:28 pm

      Sho Nuff!

    • January 3, 2012 at 6:19 pm

      Thanks for commenting! In all honesty, I’ve only seen parts of it, so this will be my first real viewing. Sho’nuff! : )

    My guess was oh so wrong – Martin Sheen. Which begs the question, is Martin Sheen a legendary actor? And when does one actually earn that moniker? Discuss.

    The correct answer, as you say, is oh so ironic (with the actual correct use of ironic I believe).

    • January 3, 2012 at 6:20 pm

      And it’s rare that the word is used correctly, isn’t it?

  6. January 3, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    Wow. Excellent quote but he obviously didn’t listen…AT ALL.

    • January 4, 2012 at 7:47 pm

      Thanks man! I know, it’s almost too good to be true!

  7. January 4, 2012 at 8:42 am

    So . . . please tell me that wasn’t the actual film trailer . . . . WHO THE HELL PUT THAT TOGETHER?! I’VE SEEN BETTER TRAILERS MADE BY . . . . OTHER PEOPLE!

    Excellent trailer examples:

    Something Blue
    Cabin Fever

    My guess is Donald Sutherland! WHAT DO I WIN?

    • January 4, 2012 at 7:46 pm

      I’m pretty sure it was an official trailer, but who knows? Regardless, I’m looking forward to seeing this one as I’ll either walk away impressed or there will be a LOT of pissed of THE LAST DRAGON fans! šŸ˜‰

    I have no clue who said the quote but your clue makes me want to guess a Carradine. Oh and I have been waiting for The Last Dragon episode. So excited!!

    • January 4, 2012 at 7:44 pm

      Nice guess Twauna! And I hope the episode does you proud! šŸ™‚
