    As this has been nearly two weeks I'd say that anyone who wants to get it going again should feel free to post a new challenge.

    Yeah, I was thinking that myself. I'll go.

    This one has no overarching theme or anything. I'm thinking it should be of moderate difficulty. Most of them are pretty well known and I think only one, maybe two, will be a potential stumper. I've been proven wrong about that before, though, so...



    1) The Matrix (Prime Time)
    2) Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (Gooner)
    3) Aliens (Powder)
    4) Oliver & Company (Rob S.)
    5) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Gooner)
    6) Gremlins ('Plan)
    7) Avengers: Infinity War (Powder)
    8) Through the Never (Powder)
    9) Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (Gooner)

    Several ringing a bell but the only one immediately jumping out at me is 1) The Matrix.

    8 Through The Never, the Metallica movie

    3 is the alternate Aliens poster

    9 looks like a comic version of Easy Rider, if it’s not Easy Rider, that is Definitely Wyatt and Billy though

    7 Infinity War

    3 is actually the original Aliens poster, not an alternate. For whatever reason they produced the more popularly known one, as well.

    8, 3, and 7 are correct. 9 is not.

    That is correct. Just watched it a couple weeks ago and it's still great.

    For the sake of keeping things moving along at a decent clip, how about some clues?

    #2 is arguably the best rendition of the main character ever seen in a theatrically released motion picture. Pretty impressive when you consider they've appeared in 12.

    #4 sits right on the outskirts of a famous Renaissance and thus hasn't gotten the love that its later contemporary films have. Kinda sad, too, because it's a really fun flick.

    #6 is an iconic film from its decade, so much so that it's actually kinda hard to give a hint without giving it away. Even if I did give it away, though, chances are an old Chinese dude would just come and take it back.

    Well 6 is definitely Gremlins.

    Saw that last Christmas for the first time. Call me heretical, but I didn't really like it all that much....

    Mask of the Phantasm is correct.

    So, too, is Gremlins. Heretic.

    We have ourselves a tie. Perhaps it can be broken by #4.

    That is unfortunately wrong. You're in the right ballpark, though.

    Sorry for the delay. Been a busy day over here.

    Oliver & Company is correct. Really fun flick that fell just before The Little Mermaid put Disney back on the map with their famed "Disney Renaissance" run of films.

    This one ends in yet another tie between Gooner and Powder. As Gooner got the first correct answer with Eternal Sunshine, that means he's up next.

    Time for some clues:

    2) This film became the fourteenth (and the first animated) movie to gross more than 200 million dollars.
    4) The main character wears a satin jacket with the logo of a golden scorpion on the back.
    6) Probably the biggest film on the board, has spawned multiple sequels, with more in development.
    8) I realise now that this is an alternative movie poster (apologies). The film won the 2013 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Festival and is a French coming-of-age LGBT romantic drama film

    OK so 4) and 6) are Drive and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone?

    The animated one has me stumped. I'm sure the grossing thing is Snow White but I don't recognise the poster as being anything related to that.

    Yep, 4 and 6 are correct.

    Snow White is perhaps a bit too old to be grossing 200 million dollars at the cinema?

    The figure I've seen for it is double that.... in fact I'll just double check

    *shuffling*

    Hmm... maybe. Seeing a bunch of different figures now some that indicate an adjustment for inflation, some that don't, some that include an aggregate of releases, some that don't. Much less certain of that. But anyway, either way it's clearly not the answer in the picture!

    Based on the numbers I found, Snow White made $66.5 million upon its initial release which, for 1937, is astronomical. Over the course if its life with subsequent rereleases and such, it appears to have made just under $200 million. That's not adjusted for inflation, of course. If inflation is taken into account, the film has earned just below a billion dollars. If you consider the inflation thing, that makes it the most successful animated feature of all time, though not by the massive margin you might think. 101 Dalmatians isn't all that far behind and would probably catch up to it if that flick got another rerelease.

    All of that having been said, I'm pretty sure it's Aladdin, which happens to be my favorite Disney movie. I had the score back in the day and it featured that image on the cover.

    I have no clue on 8, though. Perhaps a bit too vague for my usual viewing habits.

    Aladdin is correct. I get the trivia from imdb, so not how accurate that is.

    For the record, Steve's figure tracks close to the US Gross figures I'd seen, with a purported world wide gross of nearly $420m....

    Serious cash whichever way you look at it.

    Not terribly confident with either one of those but there you go.
