"Northwest Region" - January 21

Gary Cooper got to go North By Northwest the hard way. We will be doing this a little easier, as we see the Northwest Region. Mr. David, Mrs. O'Neal and Mr. Rollins will be joining us, as will these 6 people -

Bob Su (Seattle, Washington) - We have our first Asian (or maybe Pacific Islander) joining us as he spiels from Spinal Tap.

Tony Kay (Seattle) - He has a scraggly beard with glasses, and he says that his earliest childhood memory was watching The Mummy - with his mummy. Gah.

Vince Keenen (Seattle) - We have another guy in glasses (who looks like a much shorter Ivan Reitman) dreams in Technicolor, Surround Sound - and Letterbox. I'm dreaming of a Round 1 Exit.

Tom Tengi (Seattle, Washington - is there anyone from the Northwest who's into films and NOT from Seattle?) - He looks like a cross between Christopher Lloyd and Beeker from the Muppet Show and he can recite every line in Monty Python and the Holy Grail - backwards. Coffee. Much. Too.

Bob Bovan (Kent, Washington - FINALLY someone who's not from Seattle) - He's very short and looks like EX Game Show Network Producer Bob Boden. He tells everyone to be scared of him and he talks like Yoda. Maybe that IS Bob Boden.

George Trementedis (Seattle - Oh, we're back THERE again) - His two favorite cultural icons are the Godfather - and Tommy Boy.

We'll be getting rid of at least two people from Seattle as we start The First Cut. The categories are Chick Flicks, Couples Who Kill and Movies with (Base)Balls. George and Bob Bovan decide to get ballsy with baseball movies.

George - What star of The Flintstones also played Babe Ruth in The Babe?
Right Answer - John Goodman
George's Answer - John Goodman

Bob - Who directed Eight Men Out?
Right Answer - George Sayles
Bob's Answer - Barry Levinson

Well, we didn't get enough time to be scared of Mr. Bovan, who can now go back and direct things - like directing the bus driver on how to get him home. That also now means that someone from Seattle will win it this week.

We get Tom and Vince up next, and the new category it Crooked Politicians. The couple of contestants want Couples That Kill.

Tom - What Killer couple was played by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway?
Right Answer - Bonnie and Clyde
Tom's Answer - Bonnie and Clyde

Vince - Who played the two contract killers in Prizzi's Honor?
Right Answer - Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner
Vince's Answer - Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner

Tom - What Goddard film followed a cop-killer and his American girlfriend?
Right Answer - Breathless
Tom's Answer - Breathless

Vince - Name the killer couple in Natural Born Killers and the comedian who played Juliette Lewis's dad.
Right Answer - Mickey, Mallory and Rodney Dangerfield
Vince's Answer - Mickey, Mallory and Rodney Dangerfield

Tom - Who played Kit and Holly in Badlands and who directed the film
Right Answer - Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek and Terrence Mallard
Tom's Answer - Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek and Terrence Mallard

Vince - Who played the Chucky Doll's girlfriend in Bride of Chucky and what was the girlfriend's name?
Right Answer - Jennifer Tilly and Tiffany
Vince's Answer - Jennifer Tilly and Tiffany

Tom - Who played the girl opposite Gil Bellows in Love & a .45?
Right Answer - Renee Zellweger
Tom's Answer - Ally McBeal

Not even a good guess on Tom's part knocks him out, as Vince survives a tough opening challenge. Can Bob and Tony keep up such a challenge with Jackie Chan? No, as they decide on Chick Flicks.

Tony - In what 1991 movie did Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis drive off a cliff?
Right Answer - Thelma and Louise
Tony's Answer - Thelma and Louise

Bob - Who won an Oscar for best supporting actress for Shakespeare in Love?
Right Answer - Judi Dench
Bob's Answer - Judi Dench

Tony - What 1987 movie did Sleepless in Seattle reference?
Right Answer - An Affair to Remember
Tony's Answer - An Affair to Remember

Bob - What tearjerker movie has Oliver asking, 'What can you say about a 25 year old girl who died?'
Right Answer - Love Story
Bob's Answer - Love Story

Tony - What 2 actors played Berdee and Justin in Hope Floats?
Right Answer - Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick Jr.
Tony's Answer - Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick Jr.

Bob - In Beauty and the Beast, who voiced the teapot, the clock and the candlestick?
Right Answer - Angela Lansbury, David Ogden Stiers and Jerry Orbach
Bob's Answer - Jerry Orbach and.....I don't know.

The Bob's are 0-2 for getting out of the first round as it's Su you later for Bob Su. The three people left will now get to go on The Great Debate, as Vince and Tony start it off. The subject is Kevin Costner -

Vince - When he gets the right part, he knocks it out of the park - he's great.

Tony - He is the most limited American actor in mainstream actor. He has the head of a potato and an acting talent to match.

Vince says that he can direct himself well as a historical character. Tony says that the movie is bloated - and so is his acting. I thought both arguments were good. The judges take on Costner?

Keith - Tony
Tatum hates Kevin, but she thought Kevin was too insultish and votes for Vince
Henry likes the debate, but thought that Kevin didn't attack Costner's acting, so he goes for Vince.

Vince advances, so we see George play Tony on... Robert Zemeckis.

Tony - Once again the hater, as there is no heart in his movies.

George - Douglas got his best performance in Romancing the Stone (Wha?) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a classic (WHA?)

Both people harp again on Zemeckis, and this time, Tony went after the films and not personal attacks on the director or his opponent. I think this time, he wins. Judges?

Henry - Tony had a devastating argument
Tatum - Tony, since George killed himself with Romancing the Stone and Roger Rabbit
Keith - would have voted for George, but the lone vote doesn't count.

Tony redeems himself and can now get some revenge on Vince, as they play the Obsession round.

Round 1 -

Tony - Tony gets a movie poster of an Mexican Children's Film and horror movies, including Santa Claus getting fairy dust to battle Satan.

Vince - created a website of every movie that he has seen and posts up commentary on films and on the Movie Fanatic contest

Gee, I wonder if Vince will win this one. Surprisingly, he doesn't. Tony wins it, due to his fanaticism.

Round 2 -

Vince - his first movie key, as he discusses his experiences as a movie operator and usher growing up.

Tony - A journal of every horror movie he has ever seen since he was 8 years old, including symbols of a barf bag, Mr. Yuk and the 'Z' for the worst horror movies.

Based on the judges ruling on the first round, this has to go to Tony in a romp. Henry relates to Vince, but they all go for Tony. With that, Tony does get his revenge on Vince and wins it 2-0. Tony thanks his wife who says that he sometimes has a life and he thanks film for making him who he is today. Ok.

With that, we get away from the horror weirdoes in the Northwest. Join us in 7 days as we look for weirdoes in another part of the country.
