#1: I would argue that there were three: death, hard labor, and amputation. I suppose, technically, "hard labor" isn't necessarily bodily harm, unless you consider just how hard the labor was.

#7: Goose was Nick Bradshaw. :P

#8: Well, it's not Molly Ringwald. Do they have the same song on their soundtracks?

Ooh, wait, is #9 Wraith? For some reason I kept thinking of all the dead comedies (e.g. All of Me, Dead Again, et al).

You got some of them right. In fairness to not revealing the answers for others, I won't say which ones until I end the contest.

You know, I could answer all 20 questions with "I don't know," and you'd have to concede that I had answered them all correctly, because in truth, I don't know a damned one of them!

Clearly I need to watch more movies.
