    No, I have not. So sad... :(

    I've seen the French Connection, though! Does that count?

    Tbh, neither have I yet - which is disgraceful as I really like Wes Anderson's stuff.

    While admirable in that it contains the word French and as such has a tenuous Connection, I don't believe that a 50yr old Gene Hackman flick qualifies on this occasion :D

    Well that giant hound is clearly a bigger draw in the US than some of us realised!

    In game the scoring for Belfast was tighter than Beggar's Canyon with the top 3 scoring guesses only separated by $290k... and The Senate continues to be impressively insightful, scoring for all three of the weeks films

    1 @Anubis78 185 +10
    2 @Bluemilk 180 +25
    3 @Lazarus Dei 160 +15

    5 @NinjaRen 115 +20
    = @Meister Yoda 115 +0
    7 @Angelman 60 +0
