Posted:ok, some of you may have met Dave, Neon Shaolin. If you have you may have noticed that he's a movie genius of sorts.



You know the "5 degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, well he can do it from any modern film to any other modern film! (modern being late 70's ish onward and not to obscure! Give him a chance!)



eg.



Moulin Rouge to Lost Boys



'Moulin Rouge' had Nicole Kidman who was in -



'Eyes Wide Shut' with Tom Cruise who was in



'Minority Report' with Colin Farrell who was in



'Phone Booth' with Kiefer Sutherland who was in



'Lost Boys'



So I challenge everyone to challenge Dave. The rules are



1) No new challenge can be posted until the last has been completed.

2) Anyone can complete an answer if they think they can get it before Mr Shaolin does

3) Be resonable with your film, some independant hippie crap from 1963 linked to Star Wards episode 6 doesn't count tongue

4) They're my rules so nyer nana



To open the challenge, I'll go with



Goonies to Kill Bill biggrin

Thanks Gayle!



The responses I get from this range from 'You rule' to 'you need a life' (which in itself is a complement!)



I've been a film geek since the age of 10 due to reading and memorising the free montly magazines I got from video rental shop across the road. I had a version of the game in my head at this age even before 'Kevin Bacon' as I tried to link every film to my favourite one at the time 'Aliens'. So the networks were already laid when 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' emerged. Though now I'm more stumped by my own success as the networks are too complex to navigate!





I still read Empire, Total Film and SFX so I naturally absorb this information - not for the purposes of this game but its a good way to keep my mind working...



As mentioned I WILL check imdb for the cast list of either of the two films mentioned if I've not seen or heard of them. 'Friday' I not seen but have heard of but didn't know who was in it. I would not check any films in between the links... But if I check I will put it on the post that I have checked...

'Touching the Void' is more of a docu-drama with no one I've heard of in it so can't do it...

Posted:no... it means I'm defeated.

I've used actual documentaries like 'Fahrenheit 9/11' (in the loosest terms) so i don't see why 'Touching the Void' which is more docu-drama and therefore MORE elligible shouldn't count against me...

It just means my ego is bruised momentarily and we move on...
