Top 10 Helicopter Films

#01 : Blue Thunder (1983). Just THE Helicopter Movie.
#02 : Dawn Of The Dead (1978). Decapitation By Helicopter Blades Amongst Other Cool Helicopter Things.
#03 : Apocalypse Now (1979). I Don't Believe This Needs Explaining.
#04 : First Blood (1982). This Is The Guy That Falls Out Of A Helicopter When Rambo Chucks A Rock At It.
#05 : Lake Placid (1999). Giant Crocodile Attacks Helicopter.
#06 : Die Hard (1988). FBI Helicopter Cool.
#07 : Terminator 2 : Judgement Day (1991). More Helicopter Coolness.
#08 : John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). Norwegian Helicopter Cool.
#09 : King Kong (1976). By Miles It's A Better Film Than The Recent Turgid Peter Jackson Pile Of Drudgery...And It's Got Helicopters And The World Trade Centre.
#10 : Black Hawk Down (2001). It Just Had To Be In Here .
Okay, well they're mostly films with helicopters in them, rather than actual Helicopter Films ...but they do feature in an integral to the film kind of way....tell me all ten and I'll post the Fluff pic of your choice.

I'm shit at this kinda quiz. However, is no 3 "Apocalypse Now"?

El Duderino said...

1. Blue Thunder
2. Dawn of the Dead
3. It could really be any Nam movie. If it's not Apocalypse Now then it should be. That's an uber hellicopter film.
4. No idea. Is that Richard Dreyfuss?
5. Cliffhanger? Guessing.
6. Die Hard
7. T2
8. The Thing?
9. I really should know those breasts.
10. Blackhawk Down. Another guess.

Dominic Zero said...

Pretty good going people. #3 is Apoc Now.
No that's not Dreyfuss in #4.
#5 is not Cliffhanger.
#9 If you suss out whose breasts those are you'll know the movie.
All right otherwise.

What film's that then? I'm a big Hagman fan...I can't think of one.

niowulf said...

Deadly Encounter, check it out on imdb.com

Hagman takes on the mob whilst piloting a Helo.

Chris Bessie said...

Is 9 King Kong? I think it's Jessica Lange. Haven't got a clue about 4.

Dominic Zero said...

#9 is indeed King Kong, the superior 1976 version where he twats some Helicopters from the top of the Twin Towers.
Well done there Chris, Jessica Lange it is.... only #4 & #5 left.
I must admit I thought #5 was pretty easy, but that's just me.

please explain apocalypse now!

Dominic Zero said...

I don't think anybody can explain 'Apocalypse Now'!

kek-w said...

#5 is Lake Placid.

Dominic Zero said...

Indeed it is Kek. First person to spot the Giant Croc.

JC said...

Is 4 'Wings of the Apache'?

Dominic Zero said...

'Fraid not JC. I've never actually seen 'Wings Of The Apache' but I'm sure it's a fine film.
If it helps anyone..the actor in the pic of #4 is Jack Starrett.

niowulf said...

4 is First Blood.

Dominic Zero said...

Yay, well done Niowulf.

Dominic Zero said...

Ps - Thanks for The Power Station pix.

niowulf said...

No probs but no comment from you about the Hagman movie. Just can't believe I know it but not you. Heh heh.

Dominic Zero said...

I actually meant to comment on it & big up your superior knowledge of Larry Hagman movies, but then forgot (distracted by The War On Gaza)...so have done a post especially for you...
