Stained Glass Cinema #5

You wanted a challenge, you got a challenge. In our most exciting SGC yet, I stumped a lot of you for a long time, and (I'm going to tell myself) only with the aid of a few hints from me did someone(s) finally get it. Oh, and most importantly, I stumped Evan after he had the gall to call me out. Touche, my good man.

In case you missed it, it was Mad City, a 1997 drama starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta that tanked at the box office.

This time, I'm taking it easy on you. The puzzle pieces are much smaller, and there's just a lot more to work with. The race is on...

I'm pretty sure it's Pirates of the Caribbean, but it could also be Weekend at Bernie's 2

Fletch said...

Haha - Weekend at Bernie's 2? I took a look at that poster and you did a good, nay, great job of finding one that looks like this pic, but that ain't it.

I'm just wondering where you got WAB2 from - I see that it came out in 1993, and I'm guessing you have all the ones from that year down pat after the Philadelphia thing.

Short story long...nope on both.

The Movie Whore said...

It is beyond a shadow of a doubt Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

That was pretty easy once I realized what I was looking at. Cool trick.

Jason said...

Fletch, you crazy mulligan. You just had to go with a Nic Cage movie after the last SGC didn't you? The answer is Captain Corelli's Mandolin, unless it really is a trick and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is miraculously right.

Evan Derrick said...

Yah, Jason's right...it's Captain Corelli. D'oh! I got here too late.

Fletch said...

Movie Whore, you definitely get points for your confidence when answering. I got a laugh out of that.

Good job, D and J. Yes, I did have to squeeze in a Cage poster, though I was hoping that it would be so obvious that I would that you wouldn't think I did. And picking one of his least seem (and cared about) flicks helped. I'd have done Trapped in Paradise, but the poster's way too easy. I also would have liked to have done Grindhouse, but all the posters for it are too easy, too.

Good show.
