What movies are described by the haiku below?

1

We are engaged
Year after year
Year after year

2

No memory of you
Every day is the same
Every date is different

3

Stuck at one place
for 5.29 days
Delusions aplenty

4

Something bad happened
Three of us stuck inside pod
Can we still go home?

5

I am a lawyer with
A demanding boss
I quit

6

A secret hobby
Of a handsome guy
I like, or do I?

7

A taxi driver
A girl comes through the roof
Let's find us some stones

8

A dangerous outlaw
A poor guy
An afternoon train

9

Boy writes greeting cards
Boy meets girl
Boy does not get girl

10

Catches a psychopath
Who catches a plane
That catches the passenger who saves the plane

This puzzle has a little theme running through it.

  • $\begingroup$ The "little theme" is numbers in the movie titles? $\endgroup$ – Gamow Sep 18 '15 at 9:01

    $\begingroup$ Is no-one else going to complain about the lack of 5-7-5 format for the haiku? $\endgroup$ – SeanR Sep 18 '15 at 9:45

    $\begingroup$ A poem in three lines is not automagically a haiku. $\endgroup$ – Jakob Sep 18 '15 at 13:44

  • $\begingroup$ Air Force One is valid, though I was thinking of another movie. $\endgroup$ – Eli Sep 18 '15 at 11:16
