Stained Glass Cinema #4

The gloves are off. Not only did Evan get the last one (The Bone Collector) way too fast (second guess), but gave me a virtual glove slap, stating, half-jokingly, "Yeah, whatever Fletch. Like you can come up with something that we can't figure out. Bring it baby."

I say "Good day, sir!" And "Game on!" Also, expect Stained Glass Cinema to stick around, and to become a frequent, regular addition to the stable of events here. Twice a week, three times - who knows. I just know that I've got a bunch lined up, so I hope you like 'em.

Evan Derrick said...

Ooooh. Much harder. This is going to be fun.

Evan Derrick said...

First wild and crazy guess: Cyborg 2?

Fletch said...

Negative, ghost rider. The pattern is full.

Jason said...

The best guess I have right now is American Psycho?

Clive Dangerously said...

Hmm... guy wearing a tux and a lady in a blue dress? He's pointing a gun? Is it a Bond movie? Living Daylights?

Fletch said...

Nope. Nope.

If no one gets the answer for any of these, it will be posted at the start of the next episode.

Justin said...

Ok, going out on a limb here, but it does keep with the Nicolas Cage theme:

It Could Happen To You.

What say you?

Fletch said...

Nope, but the Cage theme ain't a bad idea...

Nic Cage said...

I love Cage themes.

Hint: this one is not Cage-inspired. I just liked the idea in general.

Ain't nobody getting this one, but here's a hint: it's from the 90s and stars two big-name actors. And both of them are featured on the poster.

David S. said...

It couldn't be Philadelphia? Could it?

Oh, whatever. Philadelphia.

Fletch said...

It could not be. But you're getting warmer.

Anonymous said...

hmm titanic maybe? if anyone actually ever made a stained glass window that bad, theyd be fired...

-Gay

BD79 said...

Pelican Brief?

Fletch said...

Negative, ghost rid - damnit, I already used that one.

No to both of you.

Last hint I'm giving: think flop.

Fletch said...

I smell desperation.

Okay, keep guessing. I won't pipe up again until someone gets it. IF someone gets it...

Nick said...

I don't think this is it... but...

Virtuosity?

Buffett35 said...

Broken Arrow matches up pretty well, but I can't imagine you would call Christian Slater a "big-name actor." Oh, and I can't figure out why you'd say "you're getting warmer" in response to Philadelphia.

Jason said...

Amos and Andrew and here are the reasons:

1. You said that the Cage theme wasn't a bad idea. But didn't totally exclude Cage in general.

2. Whoever said Philadelphia, you said was getting warmer, and not only was Amos and Andrew released in 1993, the same year as Philadelphia, both posters feature an interracial pair of big name actors.

3. Now I cannot find an Amos and Andrew poster that looks like your stained glass version, but I and my roommate believe with all our hearts that Amos and Andrew is the movie.

This poster lines up the best with your clues and mostly come from my roommate. But if by some miracle this is Amos and Andrew, I want 5 points.

Fletch said...

I'm afraid none of you have gotten it. I'm gonna have to put up a new one just so I can give you all the answer and put you out of your misery.

Jason, I love that you just wrote 200 words defending your A & A reasoning. Awesome. It's a good pick, and you're line of thinking is solid, but alas...no.

Don't read too much into the "getting warmer" comment. I mostly said that because it too is a film with two big-name stars featured (and featured on the poster) and it's in the ballpark timewise. I could say the same thing about Broken Arrow, but true, Slater might not qualify (at least not now - he might've then).

Next one's going up this afternoon. I'll have to make it easier so people don't quit on me. ;)

Jason said...

I refuse to ever quit! The Last Boy Scout, or Demolition Man, maybe..?

Fletch said...

Congrats - I'm impressed (and also scared, wondering how much time you spent trying to get it).

What led you to that?

Jason said...

We were searching John Travolta movies knowing that he was a big star in the 90s. It was a two day non-stop venture to find it though. But well worth the time. My roommate didn't even miss a class. When you display the points, can you put Daniel and Jason? Also, 1997 is not in the ballpark of 1993 my friend!

Fletch said...

Yeah, I was gonna say that Broken Arrow was really warm because Travolta was in it, but that would have made it too easy.

No problem on the standings entry.

And 97 most certainly is in the ballpark of 93. Just wait until I use a poster from the 70s or earlier...
