  1. Nailed them all. Now, for 100 points, which character did the bad guy from “Dirty Harry” play in a Star Trek franchise. I’m sure you know . . .

      • He was also the father in the first “Hellraiser” movie. It helped, too, that he was under a ton of makeup for DS9.

      • I love good movies. I watched “The Third Man” again the other night, and every time I watch that I look for things, little clues in the filming, just noticing how things were lit, the pacing, the way people spoke. That and “Touch of Evil” are two great movies to see how movies should be done right. Particularly the way things are lit in black and white. You couldn’t do “The Third Man” door reveal in color, not without desaturating the print. Just leaving his shoes showing–genius.

    • If it helps, I had a long think about which films were non-conformist and which were anti-establishment ha. Plenty of other categories coming up which I’m sure you’ll ace. Feel free to suggest any categories too.

  2. I knew the first two, the rest no. Ugh, I pride myself on knowing the movies…oh well, next time. Going to see either Gravity or American Hustle this weekend….any suggestion which one?
