Arrrrgh! I was cruising along then .... well, let's just say my memory and my pride can be formidable antagonists at times!

Neat puzzle and great clues!

Fun! Great clues! Challenging, but do-able.

Enjoyed it - good clues - but was thinking of a "newer" movie on one as opposed to older and wasted a bunch of moves - but very fun

I'm not a great movie watcher but I DID enjoy this puzzle.

I agree about the clues - they were very helpful in figuring out the movie so you could then work on the tag-line.

Now that it's over, we can discuss the particulars. I loved three of mine--may be roughly paraphrased--"In space, no one can hear you scream." "Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water." and "It's time for the odd to get even." The two that gave me trouble were Kelly's Heroes--"Never before have so few done so much for so many." Not a particularly memorable film--may be the "older" film referred to. I also had: "Welcome to Japan, Mr. Bond." which I didn't think was a particularly memorable tagline--but then the 007 movies tend to run together in my memory.

And it should be pointed out that "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" is actually a part of the title rather than a tag line. I still figured it out, but for accuracy's sake I thought that should be duly noted.

The one that got me was my last one, after flying through the first ones, Brad Pitt Western - all I could think of was The Assasination of Jesse James - after picking letters I figured out Legends of the Fall - even went and looked it up on Wikipedia - and while I guess it was a western - I just never thought of it "as such" - I have "John Wayne" style in my head for westerns

Now that it's done...I got stumped by "Gladiator". I remember the line from the film "On My Command, unleash Hell!" but when I saw the clue, my brain would get past the tagline that accompanied the movie poster ... which didn't fit at all. Next thing you know "I'm trying to fit in tag lines from "A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum!"

"Dr. Strangelove. . ." was not one of my five puzzles, but I just looked it up out of curiosity after Tallactor's comment. The only tagline that IMDb lists for that film is "the hot-line suspense comedy."
