New Thread: 27 to 9 to 3 to 1 Movie Game

Okay, fans, here’s the new thread with a new game. First, here’s the original thread which shows the first several rounds.

Here’s the synopsis of the rules:

And I’ll put the new game in the next post.

Here’s the start of the first game in this thread.

Ned Bellamy
Michael Berryman
Pierce Brosnan
George Clooney
Alan Cumming
Keith David
Rebecca De Mornay
Matt Dillon
Brad Dourif
Kirsten Dunst
Claire Forlani
Morgan Freeman
Michael Gambon
Seth Green
Robert Hardy
Heath Ledger
Christopher Lloyd
Jack McGee
Amanda Plummer
John Rhys-Davies
Julian Sands
Tony Shalhoub
Wallace Shawn
Maggie Smith
Rod Steiger
Bruce Willis
Paul Winfield

Remember, group these names to find 9 films, then one actor from each of those films, then group them in threes again to find the final 3 films. The three actors from those films will give you the final film and the solution to the puzzle.

I’ve got to do a little work, then get some lunch. I will check in periodically, but I’m not going to post in here every five seconds or everytime someone ventures a guess. You’ll figure it out, I’m sure.

Michael Gambon, Robert Hardy, and Maggie Smith in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

That’s correct (although I think that might be slightly misspelled, or I’ve misspelled it. One or the other).

I had it misspelled. I always want it to have an “h” in there somewhere. Azkhaban. Or Azkahban. Or Azkabahn.

How 'bout:

The Medallion for Claire Forlani, John Rhys-Davies, and Julian Sands
Lords of Dogtown for Ned Bellamy, Rebecca DeMornay, and Heath Ledger
Mars Attacks! for Pierce Brosnan, Rod Steiger, and Paul Winfield
Spy Kids for George Clooney, Alan Cumming, and Tony Shalhoub

Forgot one:

One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest for
Michael Berryman, Brad Dourif, Christopher Llyod

Now my brain hurts…

Alles in Ordnung.
(those guesses are all right on)

ok - I’ll take over for a while
let me just gather my thoughts

Seth Green/Amanda Plummer/Wallace Shawn - Hotel new Hampshire with Jodie Foster?

Correct on both counts.

Keith David, Matt Dillon and Jack McGee - Crash
leaving Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis and Kirsten Dunst - Bonfire of the Vanities

Taking wild stabs in the dark, Don Cheadle and Melanie Griffiths respectively?

Oh dear lord no.

kirsten dunst/morgan freeman/bruce willis
bonfire of the vanities - Melanie Griffith?

forgot to refresh and look before posting

So Tom Frickin’ Hanks (to give him his full name) then?

Uh, no.

here’s where we stand, right?

Crash (not Cheadle)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (no H’s BTW per IMDB)
the Medallion
Lords of Dogtown
Mars Attacks
Spy Kids
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Hotel New Hampshire - Jodie Foster
Bonfire of the Vanities (not Griffith)

so here are my guesses

Crash (not Cheadle) Karina Arroyave
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Gary Oldman
the Medallion Jackie Chan
Lords of Dogtown William Mapother
Mars Attacks Jack Nicholson
Spy Kids Antonio Banderas
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Louise Fletcher
Bonfire of the Vanities (not Griffith) Tom Hanks

Umm… ShibbOleth said Crash was Cheadle…
