NAME THAT MOVIE!
In terms of movie history and general mise-en-scene aesthetic, this last one presented a really cool anomaly: Dan and Peyton mistook Poltergeist for E.T. - which adds some fuel to the fire re. who actually directed that film...
The more we play these, the 'educated guesses' are proving to be more fun & fascinating than straight up 'correct' answers, as anyone who plays is unknowingly illustrating direct influences, homages, leitmotif, auteur theory, and a bunch of other highbrow hooey pertaining to the idea of similar themes and styles across moviemaking.
This is exciting, because it breathes some new life into this tired premise, taking it beyond a remedial game of memory. At any rate, keep it up!
Here are the answers from the previous set:
Plains, Trains, and Automobiles
The Lost Boys
Night of the Creeps
10 Cloverfield Lane
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
And now, leave the bodies, move the headstones, and turn on your heartlights: here come the new ones.
