    As I started something similar for the music section, I thought I would dig out something for the film buffs as well and came across this game that could be interesting (especially for me as I know nothing about movies), or if not interesting at least an alternative to Coronavirus whilst the football is paused.

    Basically, you need to post a movie that is somehow connected to the previously posted one and what the connection is eg same director, same year of release, both were or became books, same base storyline, both silent films etc - the connection can literally be anything providing it connects the 2 movies.

    As an example, if the first film is:

    The Terminator

    then the next post could be....

    The Titanic
    Both movies have the same director, James Cameron

    OR

    Robocop
    Both movies involve cyborgs

    OR

    King Kong Lives
    Actress Linda Hamilton stars in both movies

    Only rule is that once you've posted a movie, you can't then pick the next one!

    We can start things off with...….

    Raging Bull

    Maybe a better to idea to follow with a film with 2 links actually. Otherwise it does seem a little easy.

    Not at all. Don't see why connections can't be the glaringly obvious, very tenuous or something in between.

    Nor do I see any reason why multiple connections can't be used

    Both films star actors that died through hanging themselves, although for different motives.

    I knew I'd learn new things from this, not sure I expected it to be that though.

    Anyway, I'll go for Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

    Both movies have the name Bill in their title
