LaN, that was truly an amazing bit of analysis that literally put you a hair away from victory. But, it was indeed Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. That Nazi vixen, Elsa, not only slept with Indy, but also his father in hopes of securing the Grail.
At any rate, you’re a great competitor, but Sgt gets the point.
LaN, you’re up to pick the next category. Your choices are:
Hunger Games- movies where food is used in a sexual manner
Dial M for Mediocre- movies that Roger Ebert has given 2 stars or less
Contraction Jackson- movies where the father is in the delivery room for a birthAugust 24, 2013 at 11:04 pm #3704
Figured Lucas was more likely to have a sex scene in a movie than Spielberg. 😛
By the way, if it wasn’t mentioned on a recent DLM or CBB I would have called it Indiana Jones and the Last Ride.
I’ll take Contraction Jackson.August 24, 2013 at 11:55 pm #3705
Wow yeah, well played. I can tell I’m in for a tough round.
Clepto you should tweet these category names to Doug if you haven’t already!August 25, 2013 at 4:21 am #3708
Thanks Sgt. I’ve tweeted Doug over 150 categories in the last year, but he’s never picked any. Guess he just gets SO many, or maybe he just thinks they suck. Who knows. I came close last Halloween. He asked for Halloween themed categories and I deluged him with about 30 over a 24 hour period. He messaged me asking me to try one more good one. So, I did, but never heard from him again and didn’t hear it on the podcast, so figured he must not’ve liked it.
Can’t remember what I came up with now… but one was Graham Elwood- Movies with “kitten” or “hand” in the title.
Anyway, enough of all that jazz. BACK TO THE GAME!
The category is Contraction Jackson.
This movie with a dad in a delivery room is from 1995. Roger gives it 2 stars.
Roger Ebert says:
This is one of those movies where the outcome is abundantly clear.
There’s obligatory screaming in the delivery room.
Both leads can be charming, but it doesn’t happen here because the movie doesn’t care about them as people. (Wow, these are better clues than I should be giving lol)
The wiki cast lists 13 names. (no uncredited ones this time, so we’re good)
LaN, start the bidding.August 25, 2013 at 4:27 am #3709
Is their a star rating?
And either way I’ll say
13 namesAugust 25, 2013 at 4:33 am #3710
10 names.August 25, 2013 at 4:36 am #3711
ROger gives this movie 2 stars.August 25, 2013 at 4:38 am #3712
7 namesAugust 25, 2013 at 4:43 am #3713
7 out of 13 hmmm? I’m gonna tell you to NAME IT!
I’m doing the “I have no clue what this is” strategy and hoping it works out!August 25, 2013 at 5:34 am #3714
Alrighty, LaN, your 7 names are:
13. Charles Martinet
12. Zelda Williams
11. Aislin Rochel
10. Alexa Vega
9. Ashley Johnson
8. Joey Simmrin
7. Jeff Goldblum
Once again, feels like you missed the good cast members by one (by the way, this time I’ll remember to post the rest of the names afterwards. Forgot to do that for Last Crusade)
We’re pulling for you LaN… well, maybe not Sgt so much.August 25, 2013 at 5:56 am #3715
I’m drawing a blank on who Jeff Goldblum is. Can I ask what other popular films he was in, and perhaps what character he played?August 25, 2013 at 6:25 am #3716
Usually such things aren’t really allowed, but we’re just having fun so I’ll give you some of his better known roles.
In 1974, he played “Freak #1” in Deathwish
Who could forget his immortal role in 1983’s The Right Stuff where he played “Recruiter”
Also, remember he was The narrator for the hit 1994 tv show Futurequest
Okay, enough teasing. I’ll give you one real one. Jeff Goldblum was really great as the lead character, Seth Brundle, in Cronenburg’s 1986 remake of The Fly.
That’s all you get.August 25, 2013 at 7:45 am #3717Chris wrote:

Doug gives those kinds of clues every now and then.
I really didn’t want to be naming this one. And now I am quite certain I haven’t seen it and the names are of no help. So all I have is clues and what I think Cleptomanx would pick for a film.
“There’s obligatory screaming in the delivery room.”
Sounds like a comedy of sorts.
“This is one of those movies where the outcome is abundantly clear.”
Abundantly clear, that’s an interesting way of putting it.
After how close I came on the last movie based on other threads might lead Clepto to pick a film he doesn’t like. So, perhaps, Michael Bay’s Bad Boys 2? That probably has a birth scene in it. However, who considers Martin Lawrence charming?
Such an easy win for SgtBackstory, I can’t think of anything else so I’ll have to say:
Bad Boys 2August 25, 2013 at 8:03 am #3718
I feel for you LaN, this really was a pretty tough one as the movie wasn’t great and wasn’t really terrible, which made it a middle-of-the-road completely forgettable film.
The rest of the names:
6. Joan Cusack
5. Tom Arnold
4. Mia Cottet
3. Robin Williams
2. Julianne Moore
1. Hugh Grant
The movie was Nine Months… perfect generic pregnancy movie name.
Sgt. takes this one at a score of 2-0, which shows that strategy always plays a big part in this game as you can win without ever answering.
As the winner, Sgt has first shot at hosting duty for the next game. If a new member would like to jump in for the next game, by all means, let us know. If not, I would surely enjoy going toe-to-toe with LaNoiseus. A very clever player indeed. 😉August 25, 2013 at 9:03 am #3720
Good show, I’ll be first to admit you deserved to win that. You got closer than I could have. But, my dirty strategy of not actually having to name anything has payed off! I kicked the next one off: http://www.comedyfilmnerds.com/forum/games-games-games/1948-roger-ebert-game-lan-vs-clepto#2539
