At the end of Babylon (starring Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie) there are a number of movie clips that appear before we see the words

"Cinema de La finita"

Can anyone name all of them? I could only catch a Charlie Chaplin bit and a space station, probably from Kubrick.

    I feel like this would be considered an identification question, and those are currently off-topic here (though there's a discussion ongoing on Meta about whether to allow them again).

    The site's scope is explained in the tour and the help center. Primarily, it's about analysing films and TV shows, rather than identifying them. As I said, there is a discussion ongoing about whether to allow identification questions.

    I think even if ID questions become on topic on the future, list or quiz questions still might not be. Commented Jul 6 at 20:30

    @BoppityBop - If you think the site should allow ID questions, you definitely want to vote in favour of allowing them :-)

    @ToddWilcox I'd say this is reasonably scoped. It's focused on a single movie's ending sequence instead of splitting it into multiple questions for each movie clip. Considering there are about 50 clips, this approach makes sense. Commented Jul 9 at 3:24
