Die Hard 2. "Die Hard 2" is the follow up to the 1988 movie "Die Hard". It stars Bruce Willis as John McClane, an off duty policeman, who has to deal with terrorists who have taken over an airport.

Monty Python's Life of Brian. The tagline suits this film because when it was first released this film caused outrage and was banned in some places due to it's content. It is also very funny, but quite stupid at some points and at times it can be very annoying. It featured 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' as it's end soundtrack. In this film a man called Brian is mistaken for being the messiah instead of Jesus. He keeps insisting he is not the messiah but he keeps making things worse for himself. At the end of the film he gets crucified by mistake and when the Roman guards figure out he didn't do the crime he was accused of someone else says they are Brian and they get taken down instead, cue the end song!
The 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy. The 'Lord of the Rings' films were so long that when they were put on DVD, a special extended version of each film was released, showing the footage they didn't have time to show at cinemas. In the 'Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring' the wizard Gandalf tells Frodo, a hobbit, that he must take his uncle's ring to the elves in Rivendell. Frodo travels with three other hobbits, Sam, Merry and Pippin, and when they get to a place called Bree they meet a man called Aragorn, or 'Strider', and he continues with them on their journey. When they get to Rivendell the elf Elrond tells Frodo that the ring has to be taken to Mordor and destroyed. At the end of this film Frodo and Sam leave the fellowship to continue without them on their journey.
In the 'Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers' Frodo and Sam continue on their journey to Mordor to destroy the ring and a battle takes place between men and Orcs at Helms Deep.
In the 'Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' Frodo and Sam reach Mordor and destroy the ring, meanwhile a war takes place outside Minis Tirith in Gondor. After a victorious battle Aragorn becomes the new king of Gondor. These taglines suit the films because the first film is the first book brought to life, in the second film a new army rises to attack the world of men, and the third film was released at Christmas time and this was when the journey ended.
Robin Hood. This tagline is from the film 'Robin Hood:Prince of Theives', where Robin Hood is played by Kevin Costner. Robin returns from the Crusades to find his home destroyed and his father murdered. He then sets out to get revenge on the Sheriff of Nottingham, who is bribing Barons to unite against the King, so he can claim the throne of England for himself. The tagline suits the film as Robin Hood gets revenge on the Sheriff by stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, which is breaking the law. Robin also falls in love with Marian during the film and he jumps off of a roof, then smashes through a chapel window and has a huge sword fight with the Sheriff of Nottingham, just to save her, at the end of the film.
Same Planet. New Scum.. The sequel is called 'Men in Black II' and the plot involves agent Jay (Will Smith) having to help agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) regain his memory, then save the world from an evil alien who is looking for the Light of Zartha.

The evil alien, who wanted the Light, killed Lauranna. Meanwhile (in the present) agent Jay starts to fall in love with a witness, named Laura, who saw someone she worked with get killed by the evil alien, and at the end of the film we find out that Laura is princess Lauranna's daughter, and that she is the light so she must leave Earth forever. Jay and Kay must find a way to save their planet from the 'new scum' that is terrorising them for the Light. So the tagline explains how they are saving Earth from New Scum.
This year a sweater won't do.. In this film a climatologist is trying to find his son in New York City, during what appears to be a new Ice Age, and save the world from the effects of global warming. Because the film is set in an Ice Age, the tagline is correct in saying that a sweater won't do and in the film you see several people who have braved going outside, only to have frozen to death.

While his dad is spying on someone, he falls out of a tree into the path of a car, so Marty runs out into the road and pushes his dad out the way, getting hit by the car himself.

Scar leads Simba to believe that his father's death was an accident that Simba caused, so Simba runs away. He is found by a friendly warthog called Pumbaa and a meerkat named Timone.
