    Josh, I’m ashamed at you. 1981, music by Bill Conti, helicopter over Becton Gasworks. “You are now flying Remote Control Airways…”
    Alex, I didn’t get North By Northwest otherwise this batch is much easier than the first. I feel inconsolably smug. I love the inventiveness though, the iron shark etc. Action Man also has an amazingly expressive face.

      Another 8 out of 10… You’ll have to hover over the ones you’re not sure about to get a clue. That said, the clue for number 9 in particular isn’t proving particularly useful!

      • Chris Harper says:

        I thought 8 might be White men can’t jump because of ‘Wood’y Harrelson. Is 9 Bladerunner then?

        • Alex says:

          Oh that would have been a good pun for number 8! I couldn’t find a strong image for WMCJ though, so went with the poster for a documentary…

          Congrats on 9! I should really have put a nail through the wooden man’s hand.
