The Silver State Movies
The Silver State is the official nickname of Nevada. The nickname dates back to the Nevada silver-rush days of the mid 1800's. At that time silver was literally shoveled off the ground in Nevada; heavy gray crusts of silver had formed on the surface of the desert over millions of years and were polished by dust and wind to the dull luster of a cow horn (called "horn silver"). A big silver bed could be tens of meters wide and more than a kilometer long (worth $27,000 a ton in 1860's dollars). The territory of Nevada and surrounding states were picked clean of silver within a few decades (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Nevada became the 36th state of the United States of America in 1864. These movies have a connection with Nevada. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Nevada?

Road Trip! 1980+ Edition
You get to tag along a road trip with one of the following groups - which one do you choose? Not (necessarily) the best or your favorite movie - it's the group you'd most like to hang out a few days on their road trip. Inspired by http://www.imdb.com/list/-sZYHX7NdC8/ You get to (roughly) experience what they experienced in the movie (for better or worse). To keep it to a reasonable number of items, I am applying the following constraints: * There are at least two "central" characters but no more than three people already on the road trip, you are the 3rd (or 4th, * The movie is about an era that is 1980s or more recent. * The main characters spend a fair amount of time in a vehicle. * Are live action and not science fiction/fantasy (not animated or puppets) Because the list is limited to 35 items, there are valid entries that would probably not be plausible choices for anyone (e.g. they're basically awful or horrific experiences), so I've roughly chosen the more popular entries by moviemeter.

Favorite Film in Which "The Star-Spangled Banner" Was Used
On September 14, 1814, U.S. soldiers at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry raised a huge American flag to celebrate a crucial victory over British forces during the War of 1812.

Viva Las Vegas!
Here's a sad timely tribute to a little (well, not so little) light in the middle of the desert, a pulse beating at the rhythm of slot machines, kitschy designs and catchy music, a spirit that crystallizes whatever fascinates us in America... some narrow-minded people call it Sin City, but we'd rather call it Fun City and most definitely, the Capital of Entertainment. Yet this is a rather melancholic time, and today, in homage to the Las Vegas victims, here's a simple question: which of these movies primarily set in Las Vegas is your favorite? After the vote, you might discuss the list here (if not mainly set in Vegas, the most memorable part of the film must take place there)

Scripts are passed around frequently in Hollywood. There are often many movie makers who become attached to a project before the script ends up in the lap of the eventual director of the movie.

Some were fired during production, others couldn’t get the ball rolling, a few lost interest, and in one case the director died before he could make the movie. Which of the following movies made by alternate directors would you have been most interested in seeing? See part one here Discuss the list here

Craziest Feature-Length Terry Gilliam Film?
For a poll, my homies. That is a bit redundant, I know, but he does have some totally bizarre films and less bizarre films. This also does not mean that I am asking for his best, but his craziest. Who knows, his craziest may be his worst! To make this difficult for you and easy for me, I decided to just list his entire filmography, what with it being only twelve films. Enjoy!
