Film Stills II

I have turned in the last of my course work. Because of this most excellent occasion I have prescribed for myself a small respite before delving into the abyss that is my thesis, and I felt that some of that time should be spent tossing up a second volley of cryptic film stills to test my dear friends movie prowess. So here is another cinematic have-at-ye to those few who may still gander at this page:

22.

23.

I plan on waiting about a week to post the answers. However, if most are guessed before the week is spent I will post the titles earlier. If you are dying to know if your guesses are right make it known and I will email you.

Good luck.

  11. James Best. He got number 4. Just as I was going to put down Joe vs. the Volcano. Well, I still got Edward Scissorhands, so I demand a clap on the back from you, Darren Zufelt.
