  1. Five out of six. I would have got them all but I have not seen The Last Castle and therefore didn’t recognize it right off.

    • Still an impressive score. It was a tricky one. There were a few others I thought of putting in. Jailhouse Rock and Mean Machine were two of them. I’m not sure Con Air would have counted as it takes place on a plane.
