Now Playing in Buenos Aires

with one comment

See if you can identify the following Hollywood films based on the Spanish titles under which they get marketed in Argentina:

  1. Vivir al límite
  2. Sólo para parejas
  3. Un sueño posible
  4. La isla siniestra
  5. Un maldito policía en Nueva Orleans

All of the films were released in the US in the past year — some recently, others not. Hint: two of these films recently won Oscars in the “Major Categories” (Picture, Acting, Directing).

The first person to send me the correct answers gets…well, a shout-out and a big fat plug on this blog. After all, you can’t put a price on glory. And remember: no peeking! (OK, only take a peek on IMDB if you absolutely must.)

UPDATE: My brother came close, getting all except the last one. Muy bien hecho, Dan. See here for the answers: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]  (And honestly, for #5, the Spanish title is way better than the original. Sometimes other countries get it right.)
