Can you guess where these images are from, or what motion picture or movie?



Top is current day, bottom the movie.

Whatever...., will probably get this one?



Too easy!



Last one is a toughie, but still a very popular movie!

    No idea on the first one.

    The second one was renamed as Nakatomi Plaza for Bruce Willis' first major movie, although it could also be Lethal Weapon 2 that you're referring to.

    The third one looks like the building that James Bond escaped from with a jet pack in Thunderball.

        You might be on to something there. The Birds perhaps.

          Got the second one!

          Way off with the last one, but it has been used in several movies, but l am looking for a very well known movie, this was in at the start.

          Ok, some clues are in order.

          First one l really thought that Whateverpedia, would have gotten that one, (suttle clue there).

          Especially after the car sailed right out there!!!!


          Last one was a prison in real life, and was used as such in the movie l want the name for!

          This was shown at the beginning of the movie when ........., was released from prison!

            Ok, l am sure someone will get one of the last ones, so here is another toughie!



            And since this is pretty hard, another from the movie, (well, inside).


            It is a horror movie, and the kid in it was into tricycles, well, the plastic, toy type ones?

            Very well know, horror by the way!

                (Edit: Never mind. Just read your clue. The Green Mile wouldn't make sense.)
                Hmmm, you obviously know the first one, l will be in shock if What......, doesn't get it now?

                Technically, this is incorrect. The building in the pic is of the Stanley Hotel, which is about a mile from where I live.


                The Stanley was where Stephen King locked himself into a room and wrote the book The Shining. The movie was supposed to be filmed at the Stanley, but there wasn't any snow that year, so it was filmed in either Oregon or Washington...can't remember which one. So it wasn't used in the movie.


                Since this is a movie trivia thread started by Shane, and not a book trivia thread, I think Shane should buy us all a pizza (except Claude) for misleading us...


                BTW, the Stanley has plans to create a maze modeled on the one in the movie soon as a tourist attraction.

                  There was an article on MSN earlier this morning that talked about the maze. According to the article, it's recently been installed. The owner decided to have the hedges max out at three feet tall as he didn't want to be responsible for lost children. What a buzzkill.

                        The Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood in Oregon was filmed for a few of the exterior shots of the fictional Overlook Hotel, and notably absent in these shots is the hedge maze
                        Nope!

                            No, it doesn't mean we're both right. It means I'm right and you're wrong. Read the info you posted a link to, to find out where the interior shots were filmed, but it wasn't at the Stanley.

                    I think you'd have been better off saying you didn't read the thread. Because you're wrong and I explained why you are wrong in my posts and you still couldn't figure it out.


                    Plus, giving the same response AFTER someone else has hardly qualifies as getting credit for getting it correct. I bet Alex Trebek would love you.

                      I am sending him his pre-moldy burger by fast shipping container, but he doesn't seem to be happy?

                      The fries have a 10 year use by date, so they will be ok?

                        This one might be tricky, so l have included two photos. Also very popular movie.



                        Another easy one!



                        This seems to be an original image, but l haven't seen this one before?

                        But either way what movie is this from, or novel to be more accurate!

                        There were plans to make this into a big budget motion picture, reflecting the soundtrack, sure hope that they do!

    That first pic is driving me mad, Shane.

    I'll guess on the 3rd one: is it The Green Mile?
    (Edit: Never mind. Just read your clue. The Green Mile wouldn't make sense.)

    Is the driveway Commando? If not then Beverley Hills Cop? It's the house that looks familiar.

      Yep!

      Although l am pretty sure that the War of the Worlds print, is a modern version. Beautifully done, l will have to get that for my wall one day?

      I have read the original Time Machine book, and the illustrations are ink, line illustrations.
