MeMeMeMeMe Films

Here's a quick meme for you on a favorite subject of mine. On another day, answers would probably be different. Play if you like, and kudos if you can figure out which actor stars in three of these movies.

Action: The Replacement Killers
Comedy: Role Models
Crime: We Own the Night
Drama: Inside Man
Football: Varsity Blues
Historical Fiction: Braveheart
Horror: The Orphanage
Romance: Music and Lyrics
Science Fiction: Deja Vu
Super Hero: Iron Man
Tactical Fantasy*: Underworld
Western: The Outlaw Josey Wales

Bonus (will fit into at least one previously mentioned category, but it's just one of my favorite movies): Man on Fire

*Tactical Fantasy is what I call the genre that has horrific characters, but in which the focus is on the ability of the protagonists to combat and perhaps successfully defeat the threat. It is different than pure horror in that the there is at least a decent chance that the good (or better) guys win, and on weapons and tactics. Examples include Underworld , Blade, and The Mummy. Any movie in which there is no chance the good guys can ultimately win (Event Horizon, Silent Hill) does not fall into this category.

Geez, I havent' been to a movie in years, I think the last one was one of the Wizard ones with my Grandson... I don't think I recognized a single one on your list!

Even The Outlaw Josey Wales?! I think that came out while I was still a toddler...

Oh wait, yeah I remember Josey Wales, that was a pretty good movie :-)
