Six Degrees Movie Game #3

by Dave Umbricht

Welcome back to America’s favorite new game.  Good work last week.  I liked that Red K. Queen used Falling in Love, mainly because I confuse it with Stanley & Iris.  Ian continues to play speed demon, linking as quick as can be.  This week triple bonus points to Mags who not only honored Liz Taylor, but did so by using The Flintstones (God help us all).

But enough chatter about the past.  This week let’s go with a touching tale of father and son bonding.  So using the soap opera of the Skywalker clan, let’s be really geeky and go from:

Mark Hamill to Hayden Christensen

Bonus points awarded for using a film by Ingmar Bergman (Why Bergman?  Check out this Thursday’s Cinematic Essentials to find out).

As always, post your chains below in the comment section.



About Dave Umbricht

Dave Umbricht is a self proclaimed "guy who knows a couple of things". However, he has never claimed to know them well. Genetically predisposed to love movies, at age ten he felt really cool being the only fourth grader who knew of the film "My Dinner with Andre", thanks to Siskel & Ebert. For the next twenty years he pretended to have seen the movie until he finally watched it at age 28 and understood what all the fuss was about. He attempted to watch all of the films on Ebert's Great Movies list by age 40. He failed.

    It’s pretty popular here in the UK as well, Dave!! OK, still working on the Bergman links but how about, for starters (I think): Mark Hamill was in the 1995 remake of Village of the Damned with Michael Pare, who I’m fairly sure was in The Virgin Suicides with Darth-in-Training Christensen….

    Dave, mix those films up all the time too. I was going to mention that in my comment last week but I didn’t think anyone but me had seen Stanley & Iris. This week is a bit harder because I can’t think of any other movie besides the obvious with Hamil 🙁

    Two of my favorite male actors. I think its funny how they’re connected. With a little plastic surgery Hayden could look like Hamill.

      Hi Troy,

      Good point! Of course, with a little lobotomy Mark could act like Hayden. 😉

    Hi Tommy, thanks for commenting! Lawyer, huh? Well, I know he’s the voice of The Joker in the animated Batman series, so that makes sense! ; )

    I’m not too sure on the Ingmar Bergman connection but the obvious connection is Anthony Daniels isn’t it? C3PO was in all the Star Wars movies, even the ones I like to pretend never stomped all over my childhood memories 🙂

      Hi Richard, Thanks for commenting! And you’d be correct. Although, you could also say Kenny Baker (R2-D2) connects them. In hindsight, Dave (The Quizmaster) probably would have preferred a non-Star Wars related connection. That said, good on ya for finding a loophole in his nefarious attempt to trick you! 🙂
