There is a machine in "Dirty Work" 1998 with Artie Lang and Norm MacDonald. It is in the scene where the bar fight takes place.

#1354 53 days ago

The 1960 Ernie Kovacs / Dick Shawn movie "Wake Me when it's Over", early in the movie when Dick Shawns Character arrives on the island Shima, when he gets to the radar station, there are three wood rails in front of one of the Kwanzaa huts.

The movie State of Grace (1990 Sean Penn\Ed Harris\Robin Wright). Penn's character is in a shootout in a bar at the end of the movie and a stray bullet takes out a System 11 machine through the backglass. Saw it last night on cable..

Quoted from Crile1:

Watched Lone Wolf McQuade with Chuck Norris last night (don't ask me why). There was a Rapid Fire and another pin in the room of the evil midget in a wheelchair (I can't make this stuff up). I couldn't make out what the other pin was, but looked like a 70's early 80's solid state.

It was Bally Xenon, plus several cocktail video games.
The wife and I watched it on Amazon or Netflix today.

#1360 50 days ago

A few games in this movie.

Here's a video clip from the Howard Stern show a couple weeks ago. The payoff comes about halfway through the video ...

Pretty sure that's from The Bad News Bears (1976) (?)

#1367 43 days ago

I searched and didn't see this one mentioned yet . . .

Truckers' fight scene in the film "Convoy" (1978): Mibs / Spin-A-Card / Jive Time.

Second screen grab (same scene) is a brief shot of a pin I -think- is a Hayburners II.

Here is a music video centered around Pinbot...

#1370 43 days ago

There are some blurry ones in the background of the movie "Duel" from 1971, in the cafe scene, but i couldnt see exactly what they where.

#1371 42 days ago

So just after the half time show during Super Bowl LIII is a commercial from Toyota for the new Supra, and it's a guy driving the car on a giant pinball playfield while "Pinball wizard" is playing in the background!

I'll try to get some screen caps later.

You watched it because Chuck Norris willed it.

I was going to use Earthshaker 's inclusion in 90210 to sell my wife on getting one for our house.

Tv show Project Blue Book. The episode 'The Green Fireballs', uses a reference to pinball. Something about "bouncing around like a pinball in a pinball machine''.

#1379 31 days ago

Watched Casino Royale for the first time. There is indeed a pretty nice looking Funland. (I already knew it would be in there somewhere.)

#1380 23 days ago

Was watching Puberty Blues, an Aussie flick. Recognized 3 out of the 4 machines there. Is the second one from the left a Hankin machine?

Kinda late for me to wander IPDB as I'm not sure what pin is in the latest The Walking Dead S09E11.

Cool arcade!

The original "A Star Is Born" (1937 w/Janet Gaynor) - the characters portrayed by Fredric March and Adolphe Menjou playing a game at a Hollywood wrap party. No idea what the flipperless pin is (anyone?).

Quoted from Pinballrocks:

The Queen Bohemian Rhapsody movie has a classic Stern Galaxy [quoted image]

I just saw this movie and the funny part is the Galaxy obviously was retrofitted with LEDs!

Really good movie by the way. Not sold on the choice of lead actors but I enjoyed it all the same. Amazing what a big part of my college years the Live Aid concert was. I still remember hearing We Will Rock You as one of the greatest moments of my life. We had a stereo receiver with HUGE speakers connected to the TV and cranked the entire concert out.

This is off topic: There was a time when TV Stations and FM Radio Stations did simulcasts. Usually a PBS station showing a concert. Now with stereo TV that process of linking the sound and sight is not required. The last simulcast I remember would of been a Grammy show in the 1990's.

This probably belongs in the "your know you are old thread". Like, if you know what this is, or better yet, had one connected to your system......

There is a pretty big scene in the new Captain Marvel movie with a pinball machine. Anyone seen the movie yet? It is a Space Invaders pinball machine.

SPOILER ALERT

The Skrulls refugees are stuck in a starship with only one pinball machine to play. The little kid got a high score. Nick Fury says something along the lines of “You'd be pretty damn good if you only got one machine to play for 6 years”. Or something like that. Anyway, I enjoyed the scene - it’s too early for a clip.
