Deaths of the Silver Screen III

Recommended Posts

Thanks for running this again @Bibliogryphon. I love pools where you can submit a team and then forget about it for 2 years!

 

Some great looking teams out there full of decrepit nonagenarians and centenarians, so the competition will be stiff. I think I will go high-brow this time and pick:

 

Naked Gun 33 1/3  

Shannen Doherty

Lou Felder

Ed Williams

 

SUB: James Earl Jones

Master List has been updated to include all 45 entries to date

 

Now you have to work out which of the list I have seen (there are only 4) and which two I saw at the cinema

The Manchurian Candidate

Star Trek III (cinema)

Die Hard (cinema)

Wow - I'm amazed it's such a low number. I think I've seen 18 and I wouldn't call myself a film buff.

 

My 4 guesses simply because I think everybody has seen them would be

 

Elf

Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets (cinema)

Die Hard (cinema)

Mary Poppins

 

but if that's right then you have a lot of good films to watch (not Confessions of a Window Cleaner though!)

I have only seen Mary Poppins out of those 4. Not sure how many I have seen in total.

The two non-cinema ones, I'm guessing are Cabaret & The Velveteen Rabbit. :D

The Velveteen Rabbit a film so obscure I had to check it actually existed. Not even mentioned on the Wiki page of the book 

 

I don't like musicals

You must have seen One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing. It seemed to be on every Saturday in the 80s, most famously it is what replaced The Late Late Breakfast Show when Michael Lush was killed.

 

I have seen 9 or 10 of the films on the list.

Silent Movie, for the last one, non?

 

I've seen, I think, 16.5, the 0.5 being The Manchurian Candidate, which I fell asleep during, not setting an alarm beforehand, oversleeping and missing my flight.

No. Mel Brooks is a bit hit and miss for me. Love Young Frankenstein & Space Balls but Blazing Saddles left me cold

I've hardly seen any of them in a real sense, although I have seen lots of bits of some.  And I've been in the room when some have been on the TV.

 

I have seen :

Mary Poppins (in the cinema when v young)

Amelie

Die Hard

The Longest Day

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

 

I did see a Harry Potter film in the cinema, but I think it was the first one.  Didn't bother with any more.

We took a group of Kids to see HP & The Philosopher's Stone. My sister-in-law fell asleep.  While the books are extremely derivative that first film sucked out any possible joy from them. Only the very competent adult cast save them.

It's not that musical. Just like any other cartoon, or cartoon/live action cross.
