Six Degrees of Separation blogathon

By Sati. Sunday, July 20, 2014
Awesome Fisti from a Fistful of Films passed this to me and my assignment is to get from Jason Statham to Michael Haneke in 6 steps or less, as part of Nostra's blogathon

Here are the rules-  get ready to test your knowledge of actors/movies and directors with the six degrees of separation blogathon. You will get two names of either actors/actresses/directors or movies and what you will have to do is make a link between them in a maximum of six steps.




1. First of all, Jason Statham is so freaking hot. But in addition to that, he also starred in my third favorite movie of all time - Snatch, alongside hilarious Brad Pitt.




2. Brad Pitt also starred in awesome Burn After Reading which also featured George Clooney and these two shared a scene in a quite mindblowing manner.





3. George Clooney was in Up in the Air, where his love interest was played by Vera Farmiga









4. Vera was also in The Departed which featured Leonardo DiCaprio 










5. Leonardo Dicaprio was in J.Edgar where Naomi Watts was, much like him, also wasting her time.







6. Naomi Watts starred in Michael Haneke Funny Games





So many of you already took part in this blogathon, but there's the most knowledgeable movie blogger out there - Alex - who didn't, so I'm passing this to him.

And the goal is to get from Michael Haneke to, surprise, surprise, Stephen Dillane!

  4. OK, Michael Haneke did La Pianiste w/ Isabelle Huppert who worked with Francois Ozon in 8 Femmes who worked with Charlotte Rampling in Under the Sand (and 3 other films) who did Spy Games w/ Stephen Dillane.

    1. Very good! She is only in 2 scenes in Spy Game too so that's a nice catch

    1. Thank you! I'm interested in that too, normally I'd check if it's possible but Stephen was in such huge ensemble casts I'm sure Alex will find a way :)

  8. I love this... I guess everybody can be connected like this ! and for some reason, this understanding makes me happy. But oh well, I'm sad also because nobody has ever passed me a blogathon before.. so.. I can't see how I can participate. :(

    1. Seriously, no one ever? How is that possible?! This seems to be going on several blogs at once so I'm sure someone passes the baton to you!

    1. I don't think anyone would be offended if I wrote you know more than all of us combined....because it's true :) Can't wait to see it!

  12. That was cool. Wow, I've watched none of these movies. I guess I should watch them since you used scenes from them, shouldn't I? Especially Snatch.

    1. I like all 4 movies except the last 2 :) Snatch is so freaking hilarious, it's the funniest comedy, other than In the Loop and the show 'The Thick of It' that I've seen

  13. LOL. Pitt's face in Burn After Reading. I laugh every time! Awesome post, I look forward to seeing Alex connect Dillane! :)
