@Alex,

 

liuzhou has attempted to solve your clue for No. 9 with the answer: "2001: A Space Oddessy". Is this correct?

 

 

 

'Tis. (BTW, TftC, it's Odyssey, not Oddessy.)

I wish to note for the record that I spelled it correctly.  9_9

 

Thanks for the correction, @Alex. I actually looked this movie up on IMDB to ascertain the placement of a colon I thought was supposed to be in the title. Apparently, I skipped over the correct spelling of "Odyssey". You think I would learn one of these days, or not:D

Or, if you're a David Bowie fan, Space Oddity.

You know I am. The song you linked to sounds really familiar, and I have had the album "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" since I was a young whippersnapper. I think it's on that album, but I'm tired of searching Google to see if it's correct. I have hundreds of vinyls (not real well organized) so I'm not even going there right now.

 

I also own the DVD with him in it of "The Man Who Fell to Earth". RIP Mr. David Jones "Bowie". There's gin in this movie, so it's food and drink related, right?

 

Odyssey, odyssey, oddessy ... :laugh:

No. "Space Oddity" is, perhaps surprisingly, on the 1969 album "Space Oddity"! Actually, sometimes it has been released just as "David Bowie". Two before Ziggy (1972).

I went to see him just weeks before Ziggy was released and the concert was cancelled because only ten tickets had been sold.

I know how to spell Odyssey from my days as a literature student. It is still one of my favourite books. I mean the original Homer.

 

Lots of food in Homer, so not off-topic :S

9. Has been correctly solved by liuzhou and confirmed by Alex as "2001: A Space Odyssey" after a slight dust-up about my misspelling of "odyssey". :)

 

 

So still in play:

 

5. submitted by Wayne: Knocked head over heels by milk. Further clue to this one added yesterday by Wayne: "MRE's tossed from a retreating HUMVEE"

 

7. submitted by Wayne: "so how do you want your squirrel? Fried or stewed?" Another clue for this one from the frustrating Wayne: "Lesson given for making venison stew"

 

8. submitted by Wayne: "you're the apple of my eye" Again from Wayne: "Small game roasted over an open fire"

 

10. submitted by Wayne: New one: Fritos in the prologue and epilogue and many times throughout film.

I will make a stab @Wayne's No. 7. "The Hunger Games"? I can shoot the eye out of a squirrel as well as Katniss Everdeen, but I use a .22 rifle instead of her bow and arrow. Great, great movie!

 

 

Not the correct film.

 

Another set of clues:

 

5. Beef jerky opened but not eaten.

7. Protagonist uses a .22 rifle and has something in common with Katniss Everdeen (this should give it away).

8. Foraging can be fatal with too little knowledge.

10. Fritos and a sandwich in a tree house.

 

 

 

 

I know it's stew. What KIND of stew?

"Winter's Bone"? This is a favorite of mine.

I have no idea about 5 or 8. I have this nagging feeling that I should know #10, but nothing coherent is bubbling up.

 

To help balance out these tough ones, here's an easy one: a White Russian, repeatedly. Hint: The movie made an earlier appearance in this forum, for a different beverage.

Sure does. Sarsaparilla was the previously mentioned item.

The Dude would be proud.

 

I'll throw out one more clue for #10. Dialogue in a restaurant scene:

"...there is no rule that says I can't come over here and fart on your entrée. But I don't do it. Why? Because it's not good manners..."

So we are down to only two mystery movies today.

 

Resolved:

 

5, 8, and 10 were taken out of play by Wayne, the OP, just offering up the answers after none of us could solve them.

 

Still in Play:

 

11. Submitted by Thanks for the Crepes: This one features donuts in an armored car in an already flooded town that is downstream from an old dam that's questionable under the circumstances, and eventually bursts during the movie, further flooding the town.

 

12. Submitted by liuzhou: 

"chicken sandwiches and cornets of caviar"

 

No Googling!

I will submit another couple clues for No. 11, as no one has gotten it in 24 hours:

 

It's  not really well known, but it had a $70 million dollar budget back when that was very serious money for a movie, and Morgan Freeman is in it. Google away on mine, because I don't want people to loose interest because of frustration.
