Six Degrees Summer Tournament – Week 7

August 8, 2011

This past week I was going to be sweet.  I was going to give all of you a little insight into how I would score the William Katt link.  I was going to tell you that using the Roland Emmerich “Godzilla” would not be looked upon kindly.  But alas, I didn’t, so one poor soul did use it.  However, two other entries used what I will call “TV” movies.  So, it is with profound trepidation that I must announce that Mags is on the board:

Godzilla played himself in the godawful Roland Emmerich film of the same name (seriously, my least favourite film EVER) alongside Matthew Broderick (who really should have known better), who was in Family Business with Sean Connery, who was in You Only Live Twice with Donald Pleasance playing Blofeld,  who was of course in Halloween with PJ Soles who was in Carrie with the awesomely curly haired William Katt.

To Mags’s credit, she agreed that Godzilla was an awful movie.

Congrats Mags.  Leaderboard is now Daniel 3, Zach 2, DudeFozz 1, Mags 1.  You know the rest.

This week take me from John Cusack to Joan Cusack.  However, do not link them through a movie that they starred in together.  Feel free to link them through an Ozu movie (since we’ll be discussing Tokyo Story later this week).

As always send your links to  Happy linking.

      Zach, you were the only one to use Perry Mason.  The other used Determination of Death, which seems to have been a movie in heavy rotation on the Lifetime channel.  Supposedly it was slated for a theatrical release – but I kind of doubt it by looking at the cast.  It may have had a brief run in Germany, but I discount that fact due to its prominence on Lifetime.

      Be that a lesson to all . . . the Quizmaster hates TV movies (post-1986).
