OK the signpost says "Silencio" - not sure about that one, but I'll add:

Captain America :D

And I thought the bowling ball was the Big Lebowski. :?

And it can't be Silence of the lambs AND Hannibal. :?

Mostly got the ones above plus

Groundhog Day (the 5:59/6:00 bit)

The mask could be Hannibal but the moth's definitely Silence of the Lambs (Silencio? or could that be La Dolce Vita?)

Sex Lies and Videotape? VHS natch :wink:

American Beauty (bullet & petals + music)

The Matrix (red & blue pills)

That red sun with the barbed wire-like character hanging on a noose - is that something like Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence? It's more like Tenko actually ! :lol:

The barbed wire character is, I think the stick figure from Blair Witch.

Why is there an Algerian flag on the videotapes? :?

Algerian? No idea - not sure about SL&V as I was just going by the videos

I'm almost certain that red sun with black barbed wire writing is about a Japanese concentration camp - that's with my graphics cap on - :oops: It's very iconic and that's definitely a hangman's noose right at the top of the wire too
