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!

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!

    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!

      • Shannon Jan 5, 2012

        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.

        • 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… 🙂

    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…

  4. 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!?!”

    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).

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

  7. 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?

  8. 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!!
