Nerd Rage!

So Gallery 1988 in Hollywood had an awesome show run recently that featured various prints and paintings of cult films called Crazy 4 Cult. We went the day after it opened and they were already sold out of a ton of things but we managed to score a handful of super-sweet artwork.

One of the pieces I picked up was Tim Doyle's fantastic print, collecting various objects from pop culture films. Considering I own about half of these, I pretty much had to have it.

On to the rage. When the exhibit opened, they ran a contest for prints where you could guess all the props in the poster and what films/TV shows they were from. I got about 30 out of 40 right off the bat and then had to do some digging around and photo comparisons to get the rest. When I got to 37, I was lucky enough to have Alf & Willie (hahahaha! I just noticed that) help me out with the 2 from Dune. I hadn't seen that in at least 20 years and they were driving me crazy. The last one (i) was the holdout. I pasted my answers below, along with the 'real' answers...
