What's the answer to this question?
A Doctor's lab coat. You have to earn your undergrad and medial degrees to earn the right to wear one in a medical setting.
So know one wants to take a stab at the last question?
I.was thinking Tom Hanks and Matt Damon, but got stuck there.
Not a bad guess... I am sorry that the question seems so complex... It's not that bad, just looks it.
OK, I will give some hints:
Comparatively speaking to Year_1 and Year_2, X<0.
As mentioned, Call won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Movie_Year_X. However, Movie_Year_X was won Best Picture.
Two movie years later, Call was nominated (but lost) as Best Actor in Movie_Year_X+2 which was also nominated for Best Picture.
The Director of Movie_Year_X+2, let's call him "David", was not nominated as Best Director that year, but he was nominated (but lost) as Best Director for Movie_Year_2_B.
In fact, actor Call and that Director David have worked in numerous Academy Award nominated/won pictures together.
So, besides the question already asked, what is Movie_Year_X+2 and who is the director named David?
(Again, David is just a placeholder name with David being the name of the 4th android in the Alien films.)
I wish I had the time and energy to set up the matrix to figure this out.
Yeah, unfortunately, I don't have Visio at work on my normal machine. I was going to create a block diagram to show the connections.
It's not pure logic though. I also expect to add another clue or two or three. The more I look at the movies involved, the coincidences are very numerous!
OK, this is just too convoluted to draw up and, considering I had lots of extra clues that I could have given by introducing more people and movies making it even more convoluted, I will just give the answers:
ASH = Kevin Costner
BISHOP = Ray Liotta
CALL = Robert De Niro
DAVID = Martin Scorcese
The Year X is 1974.
The Year 1 is 1989.
The Year 2 is 1990.
MOVIE_YEAR_X = The Godfather, Part II
MOVIE_YEAR_X+2 = Taxi Driver
MOVIE_YEAR_1 = Field of Dreams
MOVIE_YEAR_2_A = Dances With Wolves
MOVIE_YEAR_2_B = Goodfellas
MOVIE_YEAR_2_C = Awakenings
MOVIE_YEAR_2_D = The Godfather, Part III
MOVIE_YEAR_2_E = Ghost
