    You beat me to it.

    I recognize almost all of these, but my brain is operating on limited functionality right now.

    I know that 1 is Batman Begins.
    2 is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
    3 is The 40 Year Old Virgin.
    I think 4 may be Fantastic 4.
    6 is Brokeback Mountain.
    9 is Sin City.

    I know that I know the other three, but it's just not clicking.

    I guess the theme is 2005?

    I think 7 is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? I might be wrong but I'm working on the presumption that the theme is films of 2005.

    Alright, here we go. There is a theme. I think that two of these could be potentially tricky due to them not being the most super well known flicks in the world or anything. One could be somewhat tricky just due to the image chosen.

    5. is Good Morning Vietnam I believe. That's the only one that is shouting out to me at the moment.

    Some are very familiar, but clues would be helpful.

    Neither are right, Clive.

    A reminder that there is a theme. Pretty hard to uncover when only one has been guessed, though.

    Here are some clues.

    #1 was the first of a series of films, the latest of which will be coming before long.
    #2 is probably the most violent film I've ever seen that had an accompanying toy line and cartoon series.
    #3 is an iconic film within its genre and is probably the most well regarded of a franchise that only recently met its end.
    #4 was hyping Thor LONG before anyone knew of any Hemsworths.
    #6 is generally cited as the fan favorite of a film series that would go on to boast 9 films in total.
    #7 does not have a ghost in it, regardless of what you may have heard.
    #8 is one that I would surely Lament you not having seen.
    #9 is the most vague of all these movies, I would argue, despite being an excellent dark comedy and one of its stars being among the most beloved figures in modern television.

    Neither is correct, unfortunately.

    Sticking with a guess for 3, and the link is a very thin thread.

    Is #3 The Ring? And is theme - movies which are set in the Far East?

    4 is Adventures in Babysitting. I knew it from the start, but damn. Vincent D’Onfrio as Thor is awesome.

    #3 is not The Ring, and the theme isn't movies set in the Far East. That'd be a really interesting potential theme, though!

    Three Men and a Baby and Adventures in Babysitting are both correct.

    Here's another batch of clues to maybe get this rolling harder.

    #1 produced one of the most iconic catchphrases identified with arguably the most iconic 80s and 90s action star. Come on, guys, you know this one. Get to it.

    #2 is great, but I'd have loved to have seen the mail villain threaten to put his foot up someone's ass just once.

    #3 is so good it definitely deserves a hand.

    Remember the era when horror movies had cool songs written especially for them? #6 boasts perhaps the best of the bunch.

    #8 is so iconic that I'm puzzled no one has gotten it yet.

    #9 is, again, the most vague of this bunch. That being said, it was the directorial debut of one of its stars and actually one of the highest grossing films in its year of release, grossing a good bit more than even some fairly iconic flicks also released that year. Hell, it even garnered an Oscar nomination for one of its stars. Despite perhaps not being widely remembered, at the time it came out the accolades kept right on chugging along.
