Guess That Movie Week 99: Ships!

These are all the names of ships from movies, to win you just need to guess the movie the ship is from.

The Rules:
If you know or think you know an answer leave your guess in the comments section. As people guess I will grey it out and give them credit (using google to find the answers will disqualify you(...I know all and see all...), the person who has the most correct guesses each week will get a fun movie genius award to decorate their blog. Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

Now the guessing!

1. Disco Volante (Jaquandor)

Gah, I know I'm too late, forgot to check in last night, so I shall skip looking over the previous people's answers & guesses to post my own.

2)The Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy
4)Um... Forbidden Planet?
5)MST3K: The Movie
8)Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
11)20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, The Mysterious Island, 30,000 Leagues Under The Sea, Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, basically any movie with Captain Nemo as a figure.
12)Star Trek 3: The Search For Spock
Its designation was the NXX-2000, and I am nerdy enough to have the Star Trek 3 Starship Combat Game that's like D&D for Trekkies/Trekkers.
13)Um... Waterworld?
19)Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back
If I didn't know that, I'd have to turn in my nerd card, which I still haven't gotten in the mail...
23)Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The one in C&TCF (w/Depp) wasn't ever named, IIRC.
25)If you'd said USS Reliant, I'd have said Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, but just The Reliant? No clue.

Arkonbey said...

Grrrr. I'm always late.

Payo said...

10. White Squall? - And only because Jeff Bridges is in it.

Anonymous said...

These quizzes are dull. Better break out some nudes.

Donovan Ravenhull said...

16) King Kong?

And ignore the guy above me. I like the nudes, but I like these too.

RAB said...

I'd like to thank everyone for not heaping public scorn and derision on me for confusing the Defiant and the Reliant in question 25!

Donovan Ravenhull said...

Well, that was because I was hoping mine would count over your's... ;-}

I'm just wondering if I might get partial credit for the Valley Forge.

Alien Piggy said...

Yeah! I want Nude Alien babes asking cool Becca trivia questions!

Arkonbey said...

3. Isn't the Argo also what they re-named the Battleship Yamato for the American release of Star Blazers?

I'm going to have to rent a copy of the "Battle for the Rainbow Galaxy". That was the best space battle ever until B5's "Severed Dreams" episode.

Donovan Ravenhull said...

I admit I Googled Argo afterwards, and saw the 'Star Blazers' usage. The question is, which was our hostess thinking of.

Becca said...

Alien Piggy you crack me up! My favorite 20,000 Aliens Going to Pee...I'm so juvenile :)

and now the answers!

1. Thunderball
2. Pirates of the Caribbean series

3. Jason & the Argonauts ( I was going for Jason & the Argonauts, I’ve never seen Star Blazers but if it’s a film and not a TV show or TV movie then it counts.)

5. MST3K: The Movie
6. Alien
7. Wall-E
8. Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
9. Forbidden Planet
10. The Sea Hawk

11. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea & League of Extraordinary Gentlemen & lots of other movies :)

12. Star Trek III & VI

23. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
24. Star Wars Episode III-VI
25. Star Trek II

Donovan Ravenhull said...

I guess one weakness I have in these is that my mind grabs book references right alongside movie ones. That's why Valley Forge got Starship Troopers instantly.

But overall I find these fun.

Arkonbey said...

My co-win is probably invalid.

Star Blazers was made into a feature film that did have an English voice cast. However, I never actually saw it. I only watched the TV show and put my 'answer' down really only for informational purposes (and was so happy to be reminded of Star Blazers that I forgot the whole 'movie' thing).

I apologize.

[note: The show is worth checking out if you like sci-fi and anime. It's got some nice, unabashed Golden-Age moments, like a island of tropical plants floating in the atmosphere of Jupiter]
