There were several flicks shot here, the one I'm looking for is from more than 25 yrs. ago.

I remember it to feature in 2010, but that is 35, not 25 years ago.

Well, maybe it IS Contact after all, 21 vs. 25 years isn't so far away...

Oops. He who can read has a clear advantage, as they say here...

OK, one in honour of our favourite Dakotan: two scifi flicks, one great, one a pile of astronaut crap, had scenes shot hereabouts.

Is it one of the greatest of all time, recently discussed elsewhere?

I think Llance is correct, my first guess would have been Starship Troopers, which certainly isn't a great film.

Now you have me in a pinch.

Starship Troopers (great film; some godforsaken planet where they fight the inscts) AND Armageddon (big steaming pile of doo; it's the place where the Shttles crash land but everyone still survives) are both correct.

Now you can tough it out among yourselves who's next.

I can't be right. I was referring to "one of the greatest of all time", but if it's a "big steaming pile of doo" that can't be the same.

But just in case it is, I will warn you that this is a trick question.

Ah, yes, the one where the most factual statement uttered was "He's probably the only black guy riding a big dog in Kadoka, South Dakota."

Charlton Heston's opening line was accurate too. "This is the Earth"

Hey, that's a German ICE (Inter City Express) stopping inside the station. :D

No idea. Action-ish?

I've only seen the first one, which was much better than I'd expected it to be.

Yes, it's from the first Guardians, my favourite superhero/comic movie of all. If you're not overly serious about comics you'll probably enjoy it. A penchant for '70s pop probably helps too.

Heid's up!
