There was some movie which contained a deleted scene in which two of the characters play Diablo II. The setup as I remember it started with a frantic "You have to come over right away it's an emergency" type phone call. The call-ee arrives to see the call-er playing Diablo II (might have been the first Diablo but in context I doubt it) on a gigantic screen and the 'emergency' is something around recovering the loot from an accidental death in an inconvenient in-game location.
What movie was this?

I'm looking for movies which show the aftermath of a hip or elegant party. There's a scene like this in Breakfast at Tiffany's, when Holly Golightly wakes up looking like a hot mess the morning after her swinging house party. Can you think of any others? It could be the morning after, or in the middle of the night when everyone's asleep or gone home.

My husband and I are looking for a hip, progressive, ethnically mixed city that is not over-priced yet. We have lived in nyc, Miami and La and have been priced out of all these markets with the overpriced housing. Considering Baltimore as I heard its not completely off the charts housing wise.
I am a chef and teach cooking classes and he is in the renewable energy business and we work for ourselves.
Both of us like good food, outdoors stuff like biking and hiking and enjoy a liberal atmosphere.
Are we dreaming or might Baltimore be a good fit?

We are a couple in our mid-50's and are looking for some specific things in our next move; more temperate weather than the North East where we are now; progressive thinking people, good food and a thriving food scene, ability to buy a house for less than $350K, low property taxes ( less than $5K) within driving distance (45 minutes is the max) to a major airport and open-minded people.
We are both entrepreneurial and active, love the outdoors and nature and want a small yard for a garden and to be near some kind of water be it a large lake, river or coast.
We are considering Portland Ore. or Durham NC. We are still working and work for ourselves.
Anyone have an opinion on either or both?

Is there a scene in a Sergei Eisenstein film where goods are unloaded from a truck/rail car and passed out or passed down a line? I thought I remembered one in "The General Line," but I can't find it-- of course the film is two hours long and I saw it once 15 years ago. Or perhaps there's a scene from another black and white movie from a different filmmaker that I might be thinking of? Thanks.

I remember a scene from Batman Begins when Wayne is putting together the costume down in the cave. At one point he is working on the cowl and turns it over in his hands and you see two white dots near where his neck would be when he wore it. When I saw it and then I heard the voice in the movie I immediately thought they were voice modulators. I've watched the DVD, I've looked at deleted scenes, I've hunted through the internet, and I can find no reference to this scene.
Was it possible I saw a miscut of the movie with a scene that wasn't supposed to go out?
(Or more likely) Is it my faulty human memory playing tricks on me?
Has anyone else seen this scene?

Name-that-movie time! Bumbling dad switches on over-the-top Christmas lights, causing the house to go up in flames and massive disappointment. A colleague and I were discussing Christmas movies and we both thought of this scene but we can't remember the movie it came from. It's probably a well-known US comedy (like Home Alone
or Honey I shrunk the kids
) from the 1980-1990s. This should be a piece of cake but my Google/IMDb/Tvtropes-fu fails me.

I need to find a scene in an old film (preferably really old, like pre-1923) that shows a bunch of stuffy men sitting in an audience, listening intently, as if to a lecture. The only catch -- it has to be set in the late 19th century. Anything pop to mind, oh great collective brain? [more inside] [more inside]

I've been watching BBS: The Documentary
and just finished the "scene" episode. I was struck in particular by Metalhead / Shaggy
from iCE. He seemed much, much cooler (my standards, obviously. I also liked Jed from ACiD) than anyone else interviewed. I was kind of into ansi art and demo stuff in high school and college (though not as a participant) and it was refreshing to hear someone kind of deflate the hubris surrounding it. I'd like to see what he's up to now, if anything, but google is failing me. Current work. Websites. Even just his real name.

What is this 'live photograph' called? I'm forgetting what this experience/event is called. The basic idea is actors posing in a scene - they're not moving, and I believe the 'audience' can move around and through these posed people. It is kind of like a real life diorama; I believe it was from the late 19th century; the term itself may be French; I'm making myself crazy trying to find this. [more inside]
