Hint
Year
Answer
Katniss has to sort out the Capitol City that's oppressing the masses in the surrounding Districts. She's a sure shot with a bow and arrow.
2012-15
The Hunger Games
A musical based on a 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, this stars Hugh Jackman. You'd think you'd want a jollier story for a musical.
2012
Les Misérables
This thriller follows a bomb disposal crew during the Iraq War, and how the difficult situations that ensue affect them.
2008
The Hurt Locker
This highly lucrative franchise is all about action, street racing, heists and spies. They haven't even got time for putting 'the' in the title any more. The series will probably go on for ever.
2001 -
The Fast And The Furious
We watch four characters deteriorate as their drug addictions take hold. Oh yes it's a super cheery film. Directed by Darren Aronofsky. Extra clue: you may have one of these states of mind tonight.
2000
Requiem For A Dream
Mel Gibson plays a Scottish warrior with a slightly ropey accent.
1995
Braveheart
The second sequel in this series, Bruce Willis energetically leaps about in his vest foiling bombs, while Samuel L Jackson sighs. The 'state of mind' of the title arises because the baddie is getting Willis back for killing his brother in the original film.
1995
Die Hard With A Vengeance
Adapted from a play by Alan Bennett, this tells the true story of a British king's deteriorating mental condition in the late 18th century.
1994
The Madness Of King George
Based on a novel by Stephen King, Kathy Bates is a rabid fan who kidnaps her favourite author and is prepared to do anything to keep him writing her stories.
1990
Misery
This stars Michael Douglas, who has an affair with Glenn Close. The film is particularly memorable for originating the phrase "bunny boiler". If you don't know, best not to ask.
1987
Fatal Attraction
Sean Connery's second Bond film. Naturally he gets entangled with some sexy woman - this time it's 'Tatiana Romanova' from (where exactly?).
1963
From Russia With Love
This is such a great film - it's so tense! Four men have to drive trucks of nitroglycerine over a mountain, to extinguish an oil well that's on fire. Will they make it?! Recommended.
1953
The Wages Of Fear
David Lean's classic version of Charles Dickens' novel: we follow the trials and tribulations of orphan Pip and his quest to be a gentleman. Most of the characters are pretty messed up.
1946
Great Expectations
John Ford's film tells John Steinbeck's story about a family from Oklahoma that have to migrate to California to look for work. The film is fractionally more cheery than the book.
1940
The Grapes Of Wrath
