Subterranean Filmsick Blues

To celebrate a significant milestone in his life, Alonso Moseley (best fake blogger name evar) of Acrentropy has posted a new filmic compilation and made a contest out of it:
On May 17th, between 7pm and 8pm EST, I will post my newest clipshow to YouTube. The first person to email me (alonzomosleyfbi@yahoo.com) the complete and correct list of 88 titles will win a DVD prize pack. There's no fee to enter, but only one entry per person, please.

I'm doing this all out of my own pocket to celebrate the upcoming birth of my first child in June (and this is easier than passing out cigars to all of you). So tune in on May 17th, and good luck!
So I figure I'll take a shot. I doubt I'll be able to get all 88 films, but these things are fun anyway (for reference, this is the same guy who did 100 Movies, 100 Quotes, 100 Numbers and 100 Movies, 100 Quotes, 100 Numbers: The Centennial Edition). Here's the video:


And here are my guesses (the * denotes when I'm not positive, but still reasonably sure):
  1. Back to the Future
  2. Fight Club
  3. The Princess Bride
  4. Reservoir Dogs
  5. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
  6. The Untouchables
  7. L.A. Confidential
  8. Midnight Cowboy * (Is that Ratso? Gah, haven't seen this movie often enough to tell...)
  9. Casablanca
  10. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone * (Could be any one with Quidditch, right? I'll go with the first one though.)
  11. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
  12. Dogma
  13. Psycho * (this had me stumped for a bit, but I think I nailed it down)
  14. Not sure. 26 seconds in. Update: Commenter grasskit notes that this is probably the godfather, but I'm pretty sure it's The Godfather: Part II (Because the first is already in the vid, and why would you include the third?)
  15. When Harry Met Sally...
  16. Not sure. 29 seconds in, John Wayne in a raccoon hat? Update: Kaedrin friend gmichailovic mentions that this is probably The Alamo (1960). Duh, he plays Davy Crockett.
  17. The Muppet Movie * (Could be one of their other movies I guess)
  18. Not sure. 31 seconds in.
  19. Mean Streets *
  20. The Blues Brothers
  21. Stupid tapdancing musical of some kind. 38 seconds in.
  22. Run Lola Run (Lola rennt)
  23. Not sure. 41 seconds in. I want to say Mary Poppins but... you know what, I'm virtually positive this is Mary Poppins, even though I haven't seen it in like 25 years. Let's go with that.
  24. Heat ("Cause she's got a great ass... and you got your head all the way up it!")
  25. Little Shop of Horrors *
  26. The Conversation
  27. Not sure. 47 seconds in. Is that Paul Newman? Update: Kaedrin friend Larry thinks this might be Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, a movie I have not seen, but which might be right.
  28. Ocean's Eleven
  29. JFK
  30. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets * (I think? Hard to see there...)
  31. The Fugitive
  32. Pulp Fiction
  33. Not sure. 55 seconds in.
  34. The Truman Show
  35. Die Hard
  36. Not sure. 59 seconds in.
  37. Dirty Harry
  38. Groundhog Day
  39. The Wizard of Oz *
  40. Not sure. 1:05 in. I want to say Once Upon a Time in the West, but Charles Bronson was Harmonica, and that doesn't look like him...
  41. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  42. A Clockwork Orange
  43. Shakespeare in Love *
  44. Not sure. 1:12. Looks like a silent comedy type of thing, an area I'm not too familiar with...
  45. Not sure. Not much to go on here, and it's not ringing a bell...
  46. Glengarry Glen Ross
  47. All About Eve *
  48. Shrek * (no idea which one, so I'll go with the original)
  49. Raiders of the Lost Ark
  50. Sneakers
  51. Not sure. 1:18 in. Obviously a Steve Martin movie. Possibly Dirty Rotten Scoundrels but I'm not sure...
  52. Midnight Run (this was obviously going to be in here somewhere)
  53. Full Metal Jacket
  54. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (seriously? 3 HP movies?)
  55. Raising Arizona
  56. Boogie Nights
  57. Not sure. 1:24 in. Song says something about cheaters, and this is reminding me of something like The Color of Money, but I can't tell... Update: Commenter grasskit notes that this is Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which makes sense.
  58. Not sure. Obviously a war movie, probably Vietnam era, but still not sure.
  59. Annie Hall
  60. Back to School
  61. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
  62. Platoon
  63. Cool Hand Luke *
  64. Rio Bravo *
  65. Not sure. 1:36 in. B&W western.
  66. Also not sure. This silliness seems like a movie I would have seen. Update: Commenter grasskit notes that this is The Meaning of Life, another movie I need to catch up with...
  67. The Shining
  68. Juno
  69. Scent of a Woman *
  70. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
  71. Ed Wood
  72. Scarface
  73. The Incredibles
  74. The Godfather
  75. Not sure. 1:49 in. Is that Steve McQueen? Update: Kaedrin friend gmichailovic thinks this might be Breakfast at Tiffany's, which might be right...
  76. Animal House
  77. Office Space
  78. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  79. Young Frankenstein
  80. Not sure. 1:56 in. That looks like Carrie-Anne Moss, so perhaps one of the Matrix movies or Memento?
  81. The Thing
  82. Not sure. 1:59 in. Lawrence of Arabia? Update: According to commenter grasskit, this is Life of Brian. I need to watch more Python...
  83. Citizen Kane
  84. On the Waterfront *
  85. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
  86. Blazing Saddles
  87. Not sure. 2:06 in... Update: Another from commenter grasskit: The Great Escape. Again, I've not seen it, but it looks right.
  88. Also not sure. Stupid musicians. Update: Finally, another from commenter grasskit: I'm Not There.
Wow, someone from the Academy Awards needs to hire Alonso to produce some montages for the next Oscars! Seriously awesome work there. I don't know how he does it...

So I'm reasonably sure of about 68 out of 88. Of those, there are a few I'm not positive about (again, marked with an *), but I think I did alright considering how hard some of those were... Of the ones I don't know, I made a couple guesses, but I'm pretty sure they're wrong. Can you help fill in any of the gaps?

PS - Sorry, the next Friday the 13th Marathon post will have to wait a bit - this was too fun to pass up (and in a rare bit of convergence, it aligns with my posting schedule too)...

Update 5/18/09: Several of the unknowns have been provided by friends and a helpful commenter. The new ones have been added above...

Update 5/21/09: It appears that the answers were announced yesterday. Looks like we did pretty good, but there were a handful of ones we didn't get (I'm kicking myself on a couple of them, but for the most part I haven't seen the ones that were missing from my answers.)
