    Sorry people I did not mean to stall the game this late in the day. I will add a new film at the end of this post but first

    junn was correct- it is Mr Lundgren and he was starring in the 1989 film "The Punisher" (adaptation of the comic book character- not sure what, if any, series/arc it follows though). Not a brilliant film and certainly not a great adaptation although I have yet to meet any die hard comic fans who say that about a comic book film.

    LocoRoco : 6
    junn : 6

    New film is a classic although I am not sure what/if any scenes are iconic so one of the main characters will have to do.

    A quick selection of hints- it is not all in black and white, it is sci fi of a sort and while it does not share the name of the source material (or all that much of the story) it does share the name with some of the later media.

    Yeah I was about to sort such a thing out

    It is Russian (book and subsequent media) and the director of the film made another legendary sci fi film that was also remade in the US in the early 2000s.

    I will cycle it round again then

    The film was Stalker aka ??????? (you will probably have better luck searching with the Russian name) which had a much liked game series of the same name made over the last few years and was based on one of the great Russian sci fi works- Roadside Picnic.
    As TrolleyDave seems to have guessed the director was Andrei Tarkovsky (the film that was also a remade that I was speaking of was Solaris).

    My new film- it is purposely shot in black and white so do not go thinking back too far.

    I don't think I've ever had less of an idea of what the answer might be.

    Sorry people I really did not mean to keep stalling the game- I do not have that many Remakes, Retellings and Adaptations at my disposal (most of them being TV shows made from films or other media).

    I can never quite figure out how to give out clues without making it too obvious or easy to search for. The lead actor that you can see in that picture has been a few films that appeared stateside although they were mainly direct to DVD or minor roles.
    It is not an English language film (it was submitted for Oscar nominations mind) and while it is an adaptation I doubt anybody frequenting this game has read the book it was based on.
    It is an action film of a sort (probably in the same way the crank films are action films).

    Edit: might as well give this one out as well. The films name is a single word (not really meaning anything in English) and the name is something of a focal point during the film.

    Once again my apologies- if it comes to pass that people want to extent the game to make up for my faux pas these last few goes around count me in.

    The film was Zift from 2008, based on a book of the same name by Vladislav Todorov
    IMDB
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1264914/

    Pretty much Bulgaria does a good version of Crank (this is one of those rare times Hadrian and I agree on something like this- I can not stand the film).

    LocoRoco : 6

    Probably to the chagrin of LocoRoco or Junn I will make this one easier.

    I'll go ahead and end this round now. Sorry I wasn't about much at the end. I'm sure I recognise the last one you posted Fast but can't put my finger on it. Definitely not seen Zift though, might have to check it out. Didn't mind Crank, it passed a couple of hours easy enough.

    This round is a tie between LocoRoco and Junn so we'll wait and see which one gets Fasts post before declaring a winner!

    It looks so much like Seth MacFarlane but it's probably not...

    Well it looks like there's not gonna be a tie-breaker for this round so I'll declare a joint winner. We'll be back for a new round at the end of November. [​IMG]
