Movie Time

Do you like those kind of visual puzzle games?

I saw this wallpaper from lovefilm.com today on myspace in a bulletin. Somebody started a bulletin to repost where everyone adds a new answer. But the problem with those bulletins is that I'll never see the end results. I've been trying to figure out some of the clues this afternoon. Some are easy like... The Fly. But some are not so simple.

Here is your mission (this message won't self-destruct in five seconds). Help me! Tell me movies you find in the puzzle.

And speaking of movies...

Last night I finally went to see X-Men: The Last Stand. I didn't like it quite as much as X-men and X2. It was a fine movie, with great special effects. I'm the one with the problem, not the movie. If they'd have asked me, I would have suggested that they find a way that Wolverine got the girl. That's all. (What do you expect? I write futuristic and paranormal romances!)

Well, there was another problem. This includes a bit of a spoiler, so if you haven't seen it yet be warned. The main span of the Golden Gate is about 4,200 feet, and Alcatraz is about 6,600 feet off shore. I remember the mile and a quarter because I watched a lot of movies about criminals breaking out of Alcatraz, and I remember Golden Gate isn't over a mile in length once you get on the main span because I've driven over it a few times. The night I took this shot of San Francisco I got a really cool one of the Golden Gate. I was in a park right above the bridge on the headlands.

Anyway, I told someone this bothered me and they said... yet the idea that Magneto can move metal to begin with doesn't bother you? I can't help it though. I can suspend disbelief for paranormal stuff. I loved the stuff like the man with wings soaring over San Francisco. And I laughed when Juggernaut pulld the Mike Meyer's Fat Bastard imitations. But, as soon as someone tries to span mile and a quarter with three-quarters of a mile and I get distracted.
