Thought the reality as a computer simulation was The Truman Show for a second.

But he wasnt in a computer simulation at all. Just a live sized set.

The 13th floor on the other hand, a movie that always stuck with me (somehow it made a really big impression and besides the cube it is one of the few that have always left an impression), is totally about simulated worlds.

I thought I'd inform for the sake of accuracy. Though I am aware the matrix is more wellknown and the one I tried first (though remembering both) so 13th floor as a type-in is not necessary per see, but accurate.

Weirdly I thought it was about 10 years before the matrix strange how memory works. It turns out they were released at nearly exactly the same time.

I thought I was a kid/early teen seeing 13th floor and a late teenager/young adult seeing the matrix.. odd. (My guesses would have been sort of 1994 and 2004 I guess, instead of both '99.)

Nice symmetry but let me estimate more precise. Hmm I would ve guessed I was 15/16 for 13th floor and 20/21 for the matrix so that would give 1997 and 2001 ah still symmetric, but only 5 years apart (but at 15 and at 20 you feel like ages have passed haha, you are like 2 different person. Different words without the use of any virtual reality ;) reality itself is complex enough...)

Surprised to not see "The Sting" on here. Then again, it only won 7 Oscars, including best picture.

The Purge might be the dumbest premise for a movie ever.

Most definitely.

Disagree, dumbest movie plot goes to Wanted. Long ago weavers discover the flubs their loom makes can be read in binary as names so make the only obvious decision: form a secret gild of superhuman assassins to kill those people. Obviously someone corrupts the system.

and if you swing your arm around really fast when firing a gun... you can shoot yourself in the head.

Okay let me rephrase. The Purge is the dumbest movie premise that some people actually take seriously.

OMG I tried EVERYTHING for The Natural!!! Legend, Hero, Model, Gifted, Talent, etc. etc. etc. I knew I had seen it, and said "What's that movie with Robert Redford and Glenn Close and whatnot, about the baseball legend guy?" And just could NOT think of it. I'm really beating myself up right now.

I like that the least guessed answer is the one that has the exact answer in the clue.

That's the only one i had no clue about, and almost didn't try that word, since it was in the clue.

The clue for "The Godfather" totally threw me off. And it's my favorite movie of all time.

I feel like the description for The Waterboy’s not far from Forrest Gump. Though obviously he’s not Cajun and there’s no ‘the.’

I don't think Forrest Gump channeled too much anger either.
