The Yellowhammer State Movies
The Yellowhammer State is the nickname of Alabama. Alabama has been called "The Yellowhammer State" since the Civil War, when a company of Alabama soldiers wore uniforms trimmed with yellow cloth and were nicknamed "Yellowhammers" (because of the bright yellow feathers that flash beneath this bird's wings and tail). "Yellowhammer" is the common name for the northern flicker woodpecker, which is also the state bird of Alabama (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Alabama became the 22nd state of the United States of America in 1819. These movies have a connection with Alabama. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Alabama? You may discuss the poll here Click here to vote for other States of America

To avoid spoiling in some cases, there are hiding bars put on the descriptions. To keep it fair, they are put on all of the descriptions. Rules for suggestions: 1. The intense scene doesn't need to happen in the courtroom itself, but the intense scene has to be in a trial/courtroom movie. 2. It can also be an intense trial or courtroom scene, urgent for storytelling in a drama, or comedy, etc. But then it has to be a trial or courtroom scene for sure. Remember the rule: No movie picked twice in this special poll series. To be sure avoiding to pick a scene of a movie that already had a scene used in this series, there is a list of already used titles to compare. Search for the original title of your suggestion in the comparing list. Use the original title for comparing. No movies rated below 6/10.

Favourite Fictional WWII Film Made After the War?
I am big into studying World War II, and I love watching movies based on its events. One thing I have noticed is that most WWII movies are basically biographical - it chronicles a real event, though it may have some historical inaccuracies for one reason or another. But I was thinking it would be interesting to compile a list where the mission(s) in the films are fake and the films are allegories, not biographical/documentary-esque. Discuss here: http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000088/nest/226952038

Italia, Yes! Mafia, No!
If The Godfather (1972) has emphasized in our consciousness many positive aspects about Italian-American culture... it also generated a few negative ones as far as pop culture and gangster movies are concerned... and this comes from a fan of the film.

So, which of these Italian-American non-Mafia movies is your favorite? After voting, you might discuss the list here

Hear ye! Hear ye! Vote for most unfair Best Picture verdict!
Although the 'legal movie' genre has provided some of the finest, most gripping and intellectually challenging American classics, it is also the most frequently snubbed when it came to the Oscars, especially the most important of all : the Best Picture. To date, only a few trial movies have won the Oscar : The Life of Emile Zola (1937), On the Waterfront (1954), A Man for All Seasons (1966), Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) and (to some extent) Chicago (2002) So, from this list of Courtroom Dramas or Trial Comedies nominated for Best Picture, which one would have most deserved to beat the actual winner? (are included all the movies in which a system of justice, of any sort, plays a significant role to the plot) Discuss here
Obscure, Surreal and Head-Scratching Movie Quotes
In general, the measure of a good movie quote is how long it sticks in your mind. Some achieve it by being repeated (catchphrases, arc quotes...) and others are delivered only once but are so puzzling that you keep repeating them over and over. They're not necessarily meant to convey obscure or surreal meanings, sometimes they're just so strange and nonsensical that they almost have a ring to it. This poll is about quotes that don't make sense when you first hear them but sound so attractive to the ear even if they make you go "huh?" Read each quote -if you know the film, you'll probably agree; if you don't, it's even better. Which of these head-scratching quotes, quick exchanges or dialogues is your favorite? A poll vote without a discussion here is like a soup without a mustache!
