It's not an association between titles, such as the Song title association game.

It's more of a free association - find something in common between two movies and give the title - for instance:

The Godfather > Donnie Brasco (the topic)

The Sound of Music > Mary Poppins (the leading actress)

The Birds > Psycho (the director)

There's no need to point out what they have in common. Unless you want to. However, if there are more than one with the same title, mention the year of production or release and the name of the director, please.

So... Let's start:

Domino (d. Tony Scott - 2005) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421054/

I don't get it. You're supposed to find a connection between one movie and another.

Domino (game) Charade (investigation + Audrey Hepburn) How To Steal A Million - but after that... I cannot follow the reasoning.
(Moreover, an actor cannot equal a movie.)

I don't see the connection between How To Steal A Million and American Pie (1, 2, whatever...), then this sequence of actors and movies they're famous for. I happened to mention The Godfather in one of my examples, so I guess you meant to create a link to that, but then... what does Dirty Dancing have to do with everything? The fact that the mobsters are 'dirty'???
However, you were supposed to find a link to the entry following How To Steal A Million, which happens to be the one I don't understand. What's the connection between How To Steal A Million? and the American Pie???

It was my first try at this game. Did I miss a detail in the rules? I was playing off of crazyfoxxy, not on behalf.

I'll try again, and let me know if it's OK:

Dear Alice,
Luke said Anger Management (2003), a movie starring Jack Nicholson, so I guess he used Jack Nicholson as the connection, too. You can't say Charlie Sheen because: 1. You're supposed to post a movie, not an actor; 2. you must have mistaken Anger Management the movie for the TV series, and this game is not about TV series, ok? So... the following post is not valid, as it used Charlie Sheen as the connection.

Alice, read the rules and the examples given above - I've tried to explain as well as possible, sorry if I've failed. Think

I'll give you another example:

Anger Management (2003) - connection = a scene inside a plane >>> Flightplan (2005) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0408790/

Confused. I thought the rules stated "There's no need to point out what they have in common. Unless you want to. However, if there are more than one with the same title, mention the year of production or release and the name of the director, please."

Are we not freely associating between movies, actors, producers, etc?

Dear foxxy, we are associating movies, what is free is the connection between them, so we can take whatever we please for a criterion: actors, directors, producers, themes, motifs, symbols etc.

In the beginning I said I thought there was no need to point out what the movies had in common because I was under the impression it was clear enough. However, as I saw things were not going smooth, I gave examples of what I meant, for everyone to see. Please let me know if you've got more questions, ok? :)

Now... Alice, you've got it right :D
