Good guess but I was thinking maybe it's something involving Adrien Brody. The resemblance is uncanny.

It is 736 Cambridge st, BUT the garage is on Warren st.

Basically, if you stopped by my house first to drop off stuff, you would continue on Murdock St (one way) to the Stop sign at the top of the street (past the stop sign that is just past my house). This is Warren st. Take a left at that stop sign, go through the light ahead of you, hospital parking is the first right after the light. On the map below, my house is marked A, the entrance to St. Elizabeth's is marked B. Both on left side of map.

Can we get some clarification on the hint, as in, what country the person is a pop idol in, or where they are originally from?

It would be possible to answer the question.

With your clues, Mr. Fair, there are so many films that fit them it is pointless to even guess, with her's, they are much more narrowed down, as in, if you are familiar with the film in question, you can guess it by the clues. IE: There are very few films that include both chicken 'fondness' and a pop idol. Unfortunately I am not familiar with them, but if it was narrowed down to where the pop idol comes from, I may be able to deduce with some creative googling.

I can't speak for tigerpal, but I actively try to make my films impossible to guess. Tigerpal learned to be more subversive after you correctly guessed R100 based on the tag line from the movie. You'll find out the name of the film tomorrow, no worries. And it will so be worth it!

It's getting down to the wire now -- just wanted to put out the feelers for the whole streaming thing. I'm just trying to gauge potential participation and will likely make a decision in the next 2 days.

Here are the options:

1. The same thing we've always done. A full 24 hours of audio streaming -- movie audio mixed a mic'd audience -- in Google Hangouts with web-chatting in between in each movie.

2. Audio streaming a few select titles during peak hours with a Google Hangout in between. (This is the option I'm leaning towards, personally.)

3. No audio streaming at all. Google Hangouts in between each movie.

Sure you can speak for me! And Ericubus, the new, impossible clues are a tribute to you and your Google skills. I've googled every clue I've posted since, and made sure they were relatively ungoogle-able.

Count me as Sadistic Bastard #2.

If I told you where the pop idol was from it would give away EVERYTHING. I think he might be the only one from this particular locale. There! I gave you another clue.

It's movie announcement day! The one with the uncomfortable title, chicken love and Pakistani pop idol Ali Zafar...
Our last movie is the 2010 Bollywood comedy about a young Pakistani reporter desperate for a chance to work in the United States. While on assignment, he thinks he's found Osama Bin Laden. His 25 million dollar fantasy begins to crumble when he realizes its only a loopy chicken farmer. Never one to give up, he still manages to realize his dream and burn his boss in the process in this satire/slapstick/fairy tale entitled, "Tere Bin Laden."

Decision time. I've gotten some responses for streaming and the consensus is pretty unanimous -- we'll be nixing the audio streaming and just doing a Google Hangout in between the movies. I'm also thinking that doing it after every movie will be excessive so maybe just during the peak hours (nobody is going to be logging on at 3 in the morning). I'll touch base with Mike and Lynn to work out what the best times would be. Hope to see some of you log in this year.

That sounds great Downhuman, plus it frees you from the cable running and constant worrying about the link. You can actually sit back and enjoy Fest this year!

Hey, I've always enjoyed it regardless. The extra work I've done for streaming is actually stuff I really love doing as well so I've never dreaded it or anything. I'll be bringing my laptop and my Bluray player this year and that's it.

I'll also have a look at your Bluray player and see if I can fix it's playback issues.

Fest lasagna made, just need to put foil on top and pop into the fridge to be baked tomorrow. And this year I made the sauce, instead of using jarred sauce.
