This was one of my first achievement sets, I've revisited it with some extra challenges, better titles+badges+descriptions, and a few movie quotes to go along with the set.

This game was completed in normal and hardcore mode by LeviLixo, the coffee drinker.

Seriously, I got the 200k but didn't get anything. Are you seriously supposed to die to get it? I couldn't at the time because I was going for the no-death thing...
5 Jun 23:17 2016
Ah, yep, that's it. You can't have 3 lives. I kept resetting on death so I could get the no-death thing, but this time I lost a life before I hit 200k and immediately got the 200k achievement at 200k. You need to have less than three lives. *shrug*

Great job with these achievements Sir. Very creative. I can tell you really liked the movie. I used to rent this game when I was a kid and the movie. To the point my mom would day, "again?" Many people dog this game, but I like it.
