For film nerds

Of which I am not one. I think I got three: Jaws, Taxi and Apollo 13. And then there were four that I thought were Clockwork Orange before the one that is obviously Clockwork Orange:

It's kind of hard to tell the difference between references and homages because they come so fast, so I came up with 36, not 35. Anyway, here's my guesses, with a * next to the ones I think are a lock:

1. Singing in the Rain*

2. Titanic or It Happened One Night*

3. Jaws*

4. ? (bloody peace sign)

5. Psycho*

6. ? Red dress

7. ? Reverse background dress (probably lost my count here)

8. ? Red shoes with forks. (The forks say The Kid but Chaplin's forks were stuck in loaves of bread -- the red shoes say . . . well, "The Red Shoes". So I don't know.)

9. Taxi Driver

10. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

11. ? Bowler hat

12. ? 8 hats

13. Snow White & the Seven Dwarves*

14. ? Glasses

15. Men In Black

16. Terminator*

17. Star Wars*

18. ? Black box sun rays

19. ? "Cross" eyed (heh heh)

20. The Omen

21. ? White/blue cross

22. Tron

23. Toy Story*

24. Fight Club (just for a flash)*

25. A Clockwork Orange *

26. Dr. Strangelove

27. Lost Highway

28. The Great Dictator

29. ? Red circle white background

30. Rear Window *

31. The Apartment

32. The Music Man

33. ? Triangles with blood

34. The Battleship Potemkin *

35. Apollo 13

36. Easy Rider

You set the bar too high, Goat. You should have said "Dawn got four! Can you beat her." Also I see nothing even remotely resembling MIB or the Apartment

MIB - the two pairs of sunglasses right before the Terminator sunglasses.

The Apartment - the heart that doubles as a floorplan for an apartment. I'll admit this is one of my blinder guesses.
