The thing is, all the films are going to be pretty famous.

Was Umbrellas of Cherbourg famous?

I think you're right about Groundhog Day, Jan.

I see the video tape but where' are the sex and the lies?

I think you're probably right about them being after famous movies - although 'Up' is far too new to be famous - isn't it?

As for Umbrellas of Cherbourg, it's a French movie and well worth checking out. It's got one of the most famous songs from the movies. Been recorded by loads of people in loads of different languages. :D

Take a look at the opening scene of Umbrellas of Cherbourg and tell me that it isn't like the clip in the video quiz. :P

The falling cross is rather like The Omen.

Oh gods - I keep forgetting! Did anyone say Life of Brian yet? The three crosses with the lightning bolt and an Eric Idle scream? :lol:

I think that's it more than The Omen (could also be the Mission but then you'd need a waterfall too...)

Sorry I've been out all day!

Silencio is from one of my favourite films..Mullholland Drive, hence the road sign :D Think you guys have got all the other ones I did.

Yes - definitely Groundhog Day as those are the clock time changes for Bill Murray's alarm that went over and over.

The crosses - Life of Brian anyone? The lightning and the Python-like scream means it's not likely to be the Omen really?

Not BA no - they didn't have crosses in that did they? And that's not as well know as Brian - that scream's classic Python
