Son of Movie Meme - answers revealed!

The common theme to 4 out of 6 flicks in this meme: Los Angeles-based film noirs. And that's not even all I have in my collection but when I go back beyond 1980 recognition drops off dramatically, LOL.

The Bourne Identity guessed correctly by mikexpop, silk_knickers, and mediocrechick. Other guesses: None

Blade Runner guessed correctly by silk_knickers and miss_tari. Note: That's an origami unicorn Harrison Ford is holding - a sign that the other cop on the case had been there and decided to leave him alone.

3. Image hosted by Photobucket.com
L.A. Confidential guessed correctly by mediocrechick. Other guesses: A Bond film. Note: That's Kevin Spacey's hand holding the business card which is for a ring of call girls "cut to look like movie stars." Their motto: "Whatever you desire."

Chinatown guessed correctly by no one. That's director Roman Polanski in the middle as a thug who's after Jack Nicholson (on the left). It's a classic film folks! Rent it today!

5. Image hosted by Photobucket.com
X2: X-Men United. Since this shot is virtually indistinguishable from one in X-Men, I accepted either as an answer. Guessed correctly by mediocrechick and kiki_miserychic. Other guesses: 12 Monkeys.

The Grifters. Guessed correctly by mediocrechick and kiki_miserychic. Note: That's Anjelica Huston as a blonde. Yep! Excellent noir! Also highly recommended.

The top one is The Bourne Identity. It's funny because one of the IDs says "John Michael Kane" and Michael Caine stared in The Italian Job (1969) which The Bourne Identity heavily borrowed from.

Uh, hi... I don't really know you, I just am here for the Lost slash. :) This in an interesting meme, though, and for once I know a couple of them.

1) The Bourne Identity
2) Blade Runner
3) Looks really familiar... maybe one of the Bond movies?
4) Just guessing... Casablanca (colorized)?
5) Twelve Monkeys?
6) LA Confidential

I'm totally guessing except the first two, which I'm pretty confident on.

Mmm. Slash. Can't fault you on that one. And hi!

Yep, correct on the first two. ;-D

Can't sleep so I'm up doing your meme........

#1 is definitely The Bourne Identity, #2 looks so damn familiar to me, #3 is L.A. Confidential, #4 I have no idea, #5 looks like either X-Men or X2: X Men United, and #6 looks like The Grifters but I'm not totally sure because I haven't seen that movie in ages.

No.2 is Blade Runner

No.4 might be Casablanca (!)

The others I'm gonna have to come back to...

Does it help if I tell you it's an origami unicorn? And that that has something to do with a director's cut? ;-D
