Name That Movie 6

Can you, huh? Based on this screen capture?

Second picture:

Will the third picture be enough to convince the remaining holdouts?

The costume and location look like something out of The Cider House Rules but I don't remember a shoveling scene.

there was a movie where the kids were scared of a shoveling guy. Pretty sure it was Home Alone...so I'm gonna say Home Alone!

Never saw Cider House Rules. But I did see Home Alone. This scene doesn't remind me of Home Alone... although... I never sat all the way through that movie--I just couldn't get into it.

No idea Burkie... I need more pix.

I didn't see Cider House Rules either. I'm not sure about Home Alone, but if that movie took place at Xmas (I think it did?) then I'd guess not... Xmas movies are usually overloaded with decorations, and I don't think we'd see so many branches without lights on them. :)

Second clue is coming at noon. Stay tuned!

Excellent deductive reasoning, Julie! I agree.

I get a negative vibe from this picture; it ain't from a happy movie, but I don't know which movie it is.

This is so freakin' obvious.

It's clearly Gigli.

Posted by: Steve at September 28, 2004 11:07 AM

Right, Steve. I believe you watched "Gigli" like I believe Colin Powell loves his job.

And if you actually watched "Gigli," I think absorbing that fact might make my head explode.

Posted by: James at September 28, 2004 11:15 AM

It does have a negative vibe. That narrows it down a little. ;)

"Fargo" has a lot of snow...

Posted by: Julie at September 28, 2004 11:22 AM

That was my first thought, but the picture is too dark in tone. "Fargo," while featuring a grizzly wood chipper murder, was somewhat lighthearted and funny (or am I in need of meds?).

Somebody climbing filthy stairs with dirty bare feet and stepping on a giant nail...

Stepping on a nail in bare feet sounds slapsticky to me. Something comedic? Maybe Ryan was right? Does anyone step on a nail with bare feet in Home Alone?

Another flick I'm thinking of is the Amityville Horror. I seem to remember some snow in that flick, filthy basements, and so forth.

Again, too dark for "Home Alone."

I know the old dude in the first shot from somewhere, but I just can't put my finger on it.

I'm thinking "Friday the 13th" or some such flick.

I'm going with Home Alone, too (not Home Alone 2, though).

This would be especially relevant in light of our friend Macauley's recent troubles...

Posted by: Bil at September 28, 2004 12:40 PM

nope it's definately home alone. The glue on the stairs I remember distinctly.

Posted by: B.O.B.(bob) at September 28, 2004 12:43 PM

I don't think I've seen this movie, but I'm pretty sure it's not Home Alone.

Posted by: Julie at September 28, 2004 12:43 PM

When I looked at it, my first thought was Home Alone. Even before I saw the previous guess. I'm going with that, too. This guy does look like the creepy shoveling guy and I think I remember the scene. Guess we'll have to wait for clue 2.

Posted by: briwei at September 28, 2004 12:44 PM

Check out the third picture.

Believe it or not, it is indeed "Home Alone"!

Posted by: James at September 28, 2004 1:32 PM

Well that ain't the Amityville house... and there is a christmas wreath on the door. I'm going to trust Ryan and say this is Home Alone.

Posted by: Chuck S. at September 28, 2004 1:33 PM

I'm going to trust *James* and say this is Home Alone. :)

Posted by: Julie at September 28, 2004 1:42 PM

Good call, Julie ;)

Ryan was indeed right. That's Culkin on the toboggan.
