    Hi guys,

    i've come up with an idea for a simple yet fun game for forum members to take part in. I call it Three Films and the idea is to name three films which are in some way connected, be it through a shared event in each film, a shared actor, director, producter, or any other type of connection you can think of.

    The person who correctly guesses the connection first takes the next turn.

    My only suggestions would be to avoid using Adult titles or recent Cinema releases if possible, as their audience is considerably narrower.

    To start you all off, what connects these three films?


    House Of Wax (2005) > Wolf Creek > Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    i think i'll give you that one, my actual answer was that someone gets their finger(s) chopped off in all three films but that's close enough :)

    highlight below for actual scenes involving the loss of fingers..

    House Of Wax -
    When Carly tries to alert her boyfriend that she's trapped in the basement, she pokes her finger up through a drain cover at which point one of the killers snips it off with some cutters

    Wolf Creek -
    When one of the girls tries to defend herself against the maniac slashing her with a hunting knife, she loses several fingers

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang -
    When Harry comes round to apologise to Harmony for sleeping with her best friend, she slams the door on his hand, severing one of his fingers

    Would have to be honest and say I guessed... have only seen Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Robert Downey Jr gets his finger cut off twice if I recall. The first time by getting it caught in a door...

    With house of wax and wolf creek being horrors, there had to be people in them getting their limbs lobbed off!!!!

    Correct - eagle-eyed viewers will have spotted Bill's brief appearance in Commando.

    So what's the other triple conection???

    Bill puts in a very brief appearance as a naval radio or radar operator, towards the end of the movie.

    And no, the other connection is not James Cameron.

    Going back to the first one, you could, of course, have also included The Burning, for finger chopping. :lesson:
