    Ok... To answer Kyle Katarn's challenge!

    1- What is the tag line of Dawn of the Dead?
    "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth"

    2- What was Bela Lugosi's Last movie?
    Debatable, his LAST appearance was in Edward Wood Jr.'s Plan 9 from outer Space. However, his last full lenght feature film was also Ed Wood's "Bride of the Monster"

    3- What book is credited to be the first gothic novel?
    There are three different Gothic trends, but I believe the one you are refering to was the one born on the weekend spent at Lord Byron's House. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

    Ktulu, sorry to say but indeed you answer is incomplete as our kind host also points out but our hosts' answer is also incomplete for as it is the correct name for 'the ewok adventure' is
    Caravan of Courage: The Ewok Adventure wich is a spinn-off from Return of the Jedi Ewoks and the Marauders of Endor/Ewoks II: The Battle for Endor. Both films got a cinematic release outside the us but both were originaly 'made for tv movies.'

    Well Rafa, you have survived the challenge. However you have one wrong answer. I asked: "Which was the first FULL LENGTH motion picture?" "FULL LENGTH" was the detail to catch. But you got two out of three and that is good, so you have beaten off with sticks your first challenge! Congratz!

    And the Jawa strikes with his hooded fist! (And that made no sense whatsoever!)

    Another challenge for the Movies Geek!


    BTW, it was "Birth of a Nation", by Griffin which is about 3 hours long, I think.

    You aced the first two questions horrorgeek.
    But, unfortunatly you missed the third question.
    The novel that is widely acredited to be the first gothic novel is "The Castle of Otranto: A Gothic Story " by Horace Walpole

    Actually, I would debate that point very hard.
    The novels that gave birth to the trend called "Gothic" in literature are John Polidori's "The Vampire" and Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein", both born and written on the weekend at Lord Byron's.
    It would be important to define what trend of Gothic are you talking about. The Gothic literature I know is not based on excess, but in the beauty of darkness.
    "Frankenstein" was the first time a monster had a heart, and feelings. It was a killing machine that could shed tears and made so out of suffering, and that mixture sparked a lot of novels on the same trend and defined the Gothic term that lives today in books and authors.
    Granted, Horace Walpole wrote "Castle of Otranto" in 1765 against Shelley's "Frankenstein" in 1816, but the Gothic in Walpole's is more towards the sublime and the supernatural, contrary to Shelley's where the horror is not only man-made, but concious (For those who have not read the complete Frankenstein, the creature talks.)
    The decision is entirely up to the game host.

    Ok, en el American Literacy Guild, Walpole esta presentado con el titulo de primer autor Gotico. Por ende, retracto mi argumento y acepto el fallo.

    Skal gana el challenge!

    Eso no significa que Ktulu pierde su puesto, btw. Skal tiene que derrotar a Ktulu dos veces mas para conseguir su puesto!

    Y Skal, tu premio viene en camino!



    Y acerca de Castle of Otranto, los scholars de literatura usualmente ponen a Walpole como el primer novelista gotico.

    I was out of PR when this thread was created.

    I want to be a Harry Potter geek but there is no way I can defeat Valle in that category.

    Please someone defeat him.

    No offense meant, Valle.

    I don't know if I'm still in time (Pottermania hit me hard and days and nights passed by without me noticing it), so just in case here are my answers to Nyom's questions:

    1-Besides Godfather II, in which other movie Robert De Niro has colaborated with Coppola?

    Found Some:

    Frankenstein (1994) (Coppola as producer)
    Good Shepherd, The (2004) (Coppola as producer)
    Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse (1991)

    2- What does McFly and Admiral Kirk (actors) have in common?

    They've both acted with Cristopher Lloyd (Doc on BTTF and a klingon bad guy on ST3: Search for Spock). Took me a while to remember this one.

    3- Trace an "6 degrees separation" between Aragorn and Gandalf (the actors),
    **Bonus: and Galadriel.

    Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) was in "Carlito's Way" with Al Pacino, who was with Keanuu Reeves in "The Devil's Advocate", who was with Laurence Fishburne on "The Matrix", who was with Sean Connery in "Just Cause", who was with Harrison Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", who was with Tommy Lee Jones on "The Fugitive", who worked along with Ashley Judd in "Double Jeopardy", who was with Hugh Jackman on "X-Men", who was with Ian McKellen (Gandalf).

    For the Bonus: Continuing from Ian McKellen who also worked with Halle Berry on "X-Men", who was with Billy Bob Thornton in "Monster's Ball", who was with Cate Blanchett (Galadriel) in "Bandits".

    Ta-daaa!

    Correct!!!!!

    For question #1 i was only counting for Frankenstein.

    #2 was exactly as it was intended to be answered

    and #3 besides beign correct , its an alternative to the one i traced.

    Viggo-Perfect Murder / with Paltrow = Shakespeare in love / with Judi Dench (as Queen Elizabeth 1) = Die another day as M /with Hale Berry= X-men / with Ian Mckellen (Magneto/Gandalf)

    Bonus= X-men from Marvel / = Spiderman directed by Sam Raimi / also director of The Gift with Cate Blanchett (Galadriel)

    Good one!!!

    Excellent. I thought that doing a 6 degrees only actors were allowed. And I just remember that Viggo was the bad guy in a perfect murder, right?

    It's up to the geek master to decide then if my answer was on time.

    Don't worry Rao, I have lost once already.
    If time passes and nobody beats me, we can always ask the game host to rotate the place so the topic stays fresh (I have the feeling not many people here know about horror!) :p
    Anyway, I'm sure it will be treated in the fairest way possible.
    Cheers!
