Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

Tough one, JP! I know only one for sure and might know another one - without cheating. Number 3 sounds like a relatively recent movie I've seen trailers of but can't remember the title.

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

I think Number 1 is The Shining and Number 11 is Fargo. If those are correct, we only need 8 more answers! We're getting there, JP!  Thanks for the challenge!

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

Those were my answers too. I apparently didn't see any of the others. #3 is The Snowman, I think.

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

Well, geez, you guys! If you haven’t been to the movies lately, I can see why you don’t recognize these. Only one and ten are relative oldies, number one from 1980 and number eleven from 1996. The rest are from this century. I’ve seen them at home, on dvd and prime TV, so they’re available. Do you need hints?

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

Once you reveal the answers, I'll be able to tell why I never saw them! big_smile

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

I went over them again and I'm stumped JP! No prize money for me!

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

The American is wrong for #2? Yikes! That's the only one I actually saw.

Re: POP COP QUIZ #39 Crime Flix and Chill

Drat! I haven't seen The American. Maybe that's why I didn't know about it. Even though I try not to repeat if possible, the one I chose is one I've used before.
