2f strikes me as Spider Jerusalem.

If 2d is Casanova Frankenstein (I’m rusty on my Deathrace 2000 lore, can anyone check if that happened?) that might suggest a theme for 2: funky, elaborate names?

Can’t verify, but something in the back of my mind wants to say Buckaroo Banzai fits 2a…?

4g is James Cameron, with Terminator.

….but if question 7’s theme is thieves, as slappy suggests, then 7f could be Garret from the rebooted Thief series.

Re: 2a — I don’t remember any particular reference to Buckaroo Banzai owning restaurants, but that made me think of the Howard the Duck movie, which has “Joe Roma’s Cajun Sushi”…

UPDATE:

Twenty-one correct answers so far of 49, three category themes mostly correctly guessed as well (hovering around a fourth)

5 and 6 seem really definitive, therefore we are only correct on one of 7 (Thieves) or 1 (animated movies). Probably 7.

We could be partially correct on the other of those or 2, which could be:
Weird, elaborate names?
Names with cities (Roma and Jerusalem, throws out Casanova Frankenstein)

4 could be Terminator or JC related?

5h could be Chava the golem from the excellent recent novel _The Golem and the Jinni_ by Helene Wecker. Which suggests, with other answers, some kind of quasi-Biblical/Jewish theme for question 5.

The “Superman analogs” theme for 5 seems definitive to me, as does “Thieves” for 7.

Also, among the answers for 2 we have Samwise Gamgee, Shadow, Spider Jerusalem, and Sebulba. The theme of “names beginning with S” suggests itself here.

If the theme for 2 is characters whose name start with S, might 2i be Sophie from “Saga”?
