Food and Beverage

This week's Mute Monday theme is Food and Beverage. So I thought I'd take you to the movies and provide you with a couple of fun quizzes at the end of this post. Interestingly, cannibalism rates high among movie cuisine. Can you spot the movies that feature human flesh or blood on the menu?















Don't Drink the Water




Mystic Pizza


Babette's Feast


Take this movie quiz; it's not as easy as you think.

Fun Mute Monday stuff. I think I aced your quiz but missed 3 on the movie quiz. Soylent Green, Eating Raoul, and all the horror movies except Silence of the Lambs?

I missed three on the movie quiz. I can't believe I missed the Charlie and the Chocolate factory one!! I knew the movie reference, but forgot the title, I guess!

happy MM!

Y'all are doing well. You missed a few in my quiz Art. We'll wait to see who made the perfect score.

Not to brag, but I made a 10 on the movie quiz, though I had to make an educated guess for one. :)

No Ratatouille? Sacre bleu!

Ms. Place said...

No Ratatouille, sad to say, or many other fine food movies. I ran out of space and time.

Wow, I didn't realize just how many movies have food in the title! ^_^ That was a very neat idea. Happy MM!

Damn, I missed #s 5 & 8. Never saw Tortilla Soup or {small voice} I Love You to Death {/small voice}. As a big KK fan, that's inexcusable. :-(
