In Rock Star movie during when he auditions for the lead singer a fireball or whatever it’s called pin in the corner of house outside of recording studio

#1106 4 years ago

Watched Jurassic Park 3 tonight ... in the scene where Billy & Alan go to dinner with the Kirbys, there are two machines there at the bar -- looks to me like a Pin-Bot on the left and a Fireball on the right, I think?

Watch the scene here

... they appear in from 0:06 - 0:18. Better yet, unlike most other background uses, you can actually HEAR it in the background!

Funny thing is, doesn't look like anyone's playing Fireball ... but someone is playing Pin-Bot -- yet it doesn't look like that one's even turned on!

Diet Dr Pepper commercial Expressway in the background can't make out the other. Is it me or are they using more pinball machines in the background lately?

Quoted from Grayman_EM:

I think the other one is a Classic Stern Flight 2000, with giant planet blocking out some of the BG artwork for copyright protection reasons.

Actually this new commercial is for Cherry Dr. Pepper (Diet and not) Cherry on!
Chariot, thus the tiny horse pulling a roman chariot.

#1109 4 years ago

Not a pinball machine, but pinball machine related. I watched "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" today, and Suzanne Ciani did the music.

Check this post:

Quoted from ForceFlow:

This showed up in The Mentalist (season 7, episode 11):

The machine was actually in the scene for several minutes.

... was this the same Flight 2K?

When Lily Tomlin fell down the drain in the kitchen, did you hear “Try a tube shot.”

There was one movie I saw some time ago with Jodie Foster where she got raped on the pinball machine (dont know the name).. very very disturbing scene. After that movie my wife doesn't like pinball at all. Gave it a bad rep for her. Oh well.

here it is.. Doing forum searches looks like everyone already knows about this horrible scene.. so nevermind.

So have we identified specific pinball machines with the title covered up that keeps showing up in several movies & TV shows? I'm assuming it's just the same machine from one prop company(Flight 2000) and some fantasy one.

Yup, several times earlier in this thread, unless you know of another one. Stern Galaxy and a BK2K. The Galaxy looks like it’s been used quite a bit.

Anyone see what pin was in the background in the last episode S3.E7 of "Into The Badlands" in the River Kings lair??

#1118 4 years ago

Not a tv show or movie. But a music video, sorry if it’s been posted before.

Pretty sure it’s a Eight ball deluxe at 2:45

The Replacement Killers - 1998 - Mira Sorvino
Guy is playing No Fear which is next to a Jack Bot, Theatre of Magic, No Fear, Cyclone, Getaway, Bride of Pinbot, Black Knight 2000, Safe Cracker, Taxi, World Cup Soccer in the arcade scene. They go by fast so my pics aren't great but watch it carefully and you will see them all.

No screen grabs but there's a pinbot and a few others in the latest Cialis commercial.

Also looks to be a future spa? in Jim and Charles' apartment on season 2 of Brockmire.

#1121 4 years ago

Just noticed in reruns, on TBS's The Guest Book, the titty bar Chubbys has, appropriately enough, a Williams Swinger.

Not sure in which episode it was revealed, I didn't catch it until the recap at the beginning of the season finale.

#1122 4 years ago

Was watching shipping wars and one of the shippers moved an entire arcade/pinball collection.

I saw this commerical for Cosentyx the other day that has some footage of someone playing a Pin*Bot. There's also a Getaway next to it, and a game I can't figure out next to that.

It's on daily on oln. Even though I'm sure I've seen every episode a half dozen times I still get a kick watching Jeff screw his buddies over. Because of it the show had a limited lifespan. They tried to spin it off with him traveling around "on the go" but only made 1 season.

Quoted from ImNotNorm:

It's a great show.

Can't wait for my next trip to Vancouver area. Direct liquidation is a must stop for the wife and I.

Funny you mention that...the wife and I said the same thing. We would like to get prop statues for the game room.

#1142 4 years ago

Tic Tac Gum has a pinball-flavored commercial. The playfield has ramps, etc. Looks like it might be a fun game.
