Fair enough; I'll explain better: In real life, like in true reality (not in the court of law; criminal, civil, or any other court invented by man, for man), is he really guilty; did he truly commit murder by killing his wife?

That's the one! You know the fine details of vampire/werewolf cinema art.

So far:

1. Cold Comfort Farm (1995)
2.
3.
4. Underworld: Awakening (2012)
5.
6. Much Ado About Nothing (1993)
7.
8.

That's a damn cheat. All of those movies are exactly the same as one another. You may have technically taken that screenshot from a sequel, but I guarantee you I can find similar frames in the first movie.

Oh look, here are a few now:





It's the EYE's and Pistols that tell you which frame, or what movie.

I think #7 is Brokedown Palace.

#8 Serendipty, maybe? That one is killing me. I'm sure that I've seen it, but I can't remember which movie it is.

.500! Good job on Haunted, that was obscure. (Kind of a nude scene, probably a body double, but a good match).

We now have:

1. Cold Comfort Farm (1995)
2.
3. Haunted (1995)
4. Underworld: Awakening (2012)
5.
6. Much Ado About Nothing (1993)
7.
8.

Let It Ride was not supported or promoted very much by its studio and barely got a distribution in the USA but lives on in home video. Too bad, really, since I thought this first theatrical effort, right out of the gate, demonstrated a unique comedic voice as engaging as that of early Hughes, Zemekis, Reiner or the Coen Briothers.

♦ Jennifer was good lookin' back then, and she is a poker aficionado (not a bad one @ all).

And she starred on some of the most awful films ever, very low B grade; you can easily figure out.
... 'Chucky' stuff.
But she was also in some cool flicks.

♦ Richard; who can forget 'American Graffiti' (1973), or 'Jaws' (1975), or 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' (1977), ...and few more.
