View Full Version : Movie Guessing Contest!

Hey guys and girls. Due to some pressure from a select few movie lovers around I've kicked off another movie guessing game, this time with rounds and xp prizes.

The Objective here is Simple. Each round I provide 10-20 screen shots from random films. Your job is to try and identify the movies from the small screens. The first person to correctly name all the movies will walk away with a whooping 100 xp.

Guidelines
1. Do not name any of the movies in this thread! Even in a Spoiler Tag. If you think you have the answers send me a PM.
2. Even if you only know a couple of the answers you can still send in the answers. If nobody manages to name all the movies before the deadline the person who came closest will win.
3. The winner of a round will be omitted from earning any XP from the next round to keep people from racking up endless combo's. (You can still play if you want to, for kicks.)
4. Play fair and have fun!

Well I know 8 of them... I'll have to think.

dawesbr
04-19-2009, 08:18 AM
I guess I'm a bit low with 5 (with a possible 6)

What the hell is 02 all about?!

olit123
04-19-2009, 08:52 AM
I know 05,06,07,08. Have no clue what the others are. Everyone should know 06 and 07, they are legendary films.

dawesbr
04-19-2009, 09:16 AM
I know 3,4,6,7,8. Maybe 5 too.

rtm223
04-19-2009, 10:48 AM
I've got 7 of them. Have a hunch about #5 as well but I think I'm wrong...

v0rtex
04-19-2009, 12:24 PM
I've got 8 of them. 4 & 5 just have me stumped tho. Feel like I should know 5.

i've got 11 of them

i don't know any of them, so you guys must be proud >_>

Wow, tough first round. I know 5 for sure, and maybe 2 others. Nice one for sparkin this up again Morrinn :)

Morrinn3
04-19-2009, 08:35 PM
And we have ourselves a Winner!
Give a round of applause (or a jealous hissing) to our good friend Cog (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/member.php?u=3111)!
Zwollie came extremely close with 9/10 answers though.

IŽll put up the answers in a spoiler, tag for you guys who are interested. Next round will be put up tomorrow (Monday).

Zwollie
04-19-2009, 09:06 PM
Hiss!! :grr:

Seriously, congratulations Cog!! :)

Pitcard
04-19-2009, 09:17 PM
Hehe that was fast. This means we're getting round two early^^ great stuff man.

Thanks, lol I finished it 2 hours after it started :)

Good luck to everyone for round two!

I think I will increase the number of movies for round two, try and milk out the duration of each round a bit.

Yesterday, you said it would be out tomorrow.

Today is tomorrow (from yesterday).

Where are my moooooooovies?

Today is tomorrow (from yesterday).

Gotta respect the timezones, brother.

Anyways,
NEW MOVIES HAVE BEEN POSTED!
Have at them. I added ten more screenshots to make things more interesting. Have fun, remember to send me a PM with a list of answers.
(The screenshots are in the Second Post.)

Pitcard
04-20-2009, 11:30 PM
Cool selection! I'm always looking forward to the next round just to have my memory sparked with all these great films I've seen :)

I think I have 12-14 in the bag... possibly more.

Kog
04-21-2009, 02:21 AM
This one is a bit harder, but I can't join in cause I won last time :( But I'll be back!

Dexiro
04-21-2009, 07:13 AM
i think i know 4 of those at least

and 2 that i can at least guess

i want to know what 17 is, that zombie thing looks cool :p

LittleBigMe
04-21-2009, 03:11 PM
I only know 3 of them -_-.

Dexiro
04-21-2009, 06:22 PM
are you sure someone is going to manage all 20?

i struggle to even name 3-4 :p

i think you should've split this into 2 rounds..
that way you wouldn't have to go through the effort of uploading more movie pics for round 3

Zwollie
04-21-2009, 06:46 PM
I know 18 of them at the moment, I don't think the remaining 2 will become clear to me though...

Pitcard
04-21-2009, 07:35 PM
I've figured out a couple more but it doesn't seem like I'll be any competition for Zwollie's 18 Grrrrr :D

04-23-2009, 03:31 PM
What are the rules on looking stuff up on IMDB? I had like 8 from round two on sight, but I looked up a few more that I half knew...

Pitcard
04-23-2009, 03:51 PM
Morrinn said its K to send him the answers you know... and then if you figure more out, you can send those. I dunno about looking them up on IMDB though :S... I suppose no one can't tell for certain so theres no way of stopping you ^^

Morrinn3
04-23-2009, 04:42 PM
Well, I have actually leaked a Backdoor virus onto into the BSS code so I have complete access to all of your computers and will definitely be checking your histories to see if you have been cheating on IMDb. (Btw, Pitcard, you are a dirty, dirty little man. And Walter, those donkey pictures? Not cool, bro.)

But actually, no, I have no problem with you guys using the Database. Just try and limit it to just looking stuff up, don't go seeking help and sharing the pictures or anything.
Scout's honour, eh?

Pitcard
04-23-2009, 06:06 PM
Well......... all I can say to redeem myself is...... at least I don't have "donkey pictures" O_o

I believe I've figured out 2 more.... through some sneaky browsing, might as well pm you them so!

Tis not Shermzor's finest hour.

Round two is now complete. Nobody managed to guess all 20 correctly, but Zwollie came closest with 18/20. Give the bugger a round of applause... Or throw something icky at him if that suits your fancy.

I've put up the answers in the original post for those of you who are interested. Round three will go up sometime tomorrow.

dawesbr

This round's a lot harder... I'm 100% sure of 10 of them... but there's a few I'm pretty sure I've seen, just can't remember >_>

Well done Zwollie.

This is a pretty solid round for me. 99% sure on 18/20. There are two that I just cannot place though...

The person in the lead has 18/20 correct. You got a couple of days to piece the rest together. ;)

Righty-o,
Round three is now complete. Again, nobody managed all 20, but Cog again walks away with the prize for coming closest with 19/20. Honourable mention goes to V0rtex for having 18/20, tough luck, brother.
I'll put the elusive answers in a spoiler tag on Page One.

Stay tuned for Round Four, which will go live sometime next Thursday.

But 'Der Untergang'?!?! No wonder I got that wrong >_> I know, right? And having never seen Cloverfield, I didn't recognize the actor or the scene (my only other miss).

I'll get you though Cog (and your little dog [insert wicked witch laugh here]). At least you're out of this next round!

Kog
05-06-2009, 04:01 AM
Ya, now I can't ruin your chances. :(

But nah, I don't want to be mean so I probably won't join in for a couple rounds. I've won twice, and there have only been three rounds, so I think I'll take a good long hibernative rest.

Movie #1 is SUCH a good movie that EVERYBODY should see. It's similar to Aeon Flux. IT's just so good. I know a few, but not many. It's just fun to have a guess at a few :3.

Round 4 is now over. Big celebratory cheer to v0rtex for identifying the bulk of the screenshots.
Round five will be up soon, and it will feature a... surprise theme.

I've put the answers to round 4 up there in the first post as usual so head on over if any particular answer kept eluding you.

04-1984
13-Death at a Funeral
17-The Frighteners

dawesbr
05-15-2009, 06:09 PM
Fair enough. I totally guessed 1984 purely on the fact that the face on the TV screen looked like it was watching the guy :P I have never seen that film.

I only had 16. I missed:

01-Equilibrium

Huh.. I thought I had 16 correct also? Maybe it was because I only said Kill Bill and not volume one >_>...
Morrinn?

Huh.. I thought I had 16 correct also? Maybe it was because I only said Kill Bill and not volume one >_>...
Morrinn?

Yeah - I wondered about this as well. And it couldn't be cuz I answered first, since I got my entry in about 5 hours before he announced the winner!

dawesbr
05-16-2009, 03:34 PM
Pitcard, he should have emailed you how many you got. If you did get 16, and EARLIER than v0rtex, I'm afraid we have a problem.

Pitcard
05-16-2009, 06:43 PM
Yeah... that's why I was confused. He didn't send me a reply saying how many I got, but I just presumed he wasn't doing that anymore >_>

dawesbr
05-17-2009, 09:10 AM
He sent me one. Maybe it just didn't go through?
MORRINN. WE NEED A NEW ROUND.

Morrinn3
05-21-2009, 06:07 PM
I am a massive idiot and I truly beg all of you pardon...

First off, I've been away on business and due to all the hectic schedule I've suffered lately I forgot to properly announce the hiatus in the game.

Even worse however was the huge mistake I made in the last round. Upon going through my inbox and cleaning out all the old messages I fear I might have deleted some fresh entries from Pitcard. All I noticed was a message I presume must have been adding to his original answers, and mistook it for his only guesses.

To rectify this error I will am going to ask Cartman to grant also grant Pitcard experience while still allow him to compete in R5, I hope this will be sufficient compensation along with my sincere apology.
Since I cannot confirm the winner, V0rtex will still be named the champion of R4, retaining his XP (Since it would be unfair to subtract it at this late date), the condition being that he'll have to abstain from entering R5.

I hope this will appease everyone, if there are any objections, please let me know and I'll see if I can help.

I am at the moment compiling Round 5 which will go up tomorrow. Stay tuned.

We're all human.... well - except for a few of the members here. (j/k) I think that's an excellent compromise for the dual winners. Very fair of you I think.

Can't wait for Round 5.... I'm hoping I can do better than 12 this time around! I do have to say I love the range you put in the films. Really fun game!

Aaaahh... that seems acceptable to me. But it does bring up a question. In the future, what will be the resolution for another tie?

Congrats, BTW, to Pitcard! Well done sir!

In the case of a tie, the one who answered first will be considered the victor.
It's only in this case that we're forced to compromise due to an error on my behalf :<

Another note; winning a round will exclude you from earning prizes in the subsequent round, but you are still free to participate for fun :)

This is a special Anime/Animation round! Have fun y'all.

Nice! You've got this thing back on track with an anime round to boot :D

I'm big into anime and non-disney animated films, but this looks kinda tricky. I know about 7 though..

Boy, am I glad this round comes after my win! :) I am a solid 0/10 on this round. The animation that I generally see is mainstream, Disney/Pixar, kids fare. And less and less of that as my kids have grown out it.

But... since I am not eligible anyway, I shall cheat. :eek: I have a buddy for whom animation (especially obscure anime) is almost an obsession. I'll have him feed me the answers! I'm curious to see how well he does.

Good luck to the rest of y'all!!

No way dude, number 2 FTW!

Number 6 is really good though, I think I like it even more than number 8.

Round Five: TOONS! is now complete.
Aaaaand the winner is: Gravel (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/member.php?u=4317)! With 8/10
Round of Applause goes to him.

Once again, I'll post the answers in a spoiler in the first post for those of you who are curious.
Round 6 will go up Wednesday.

Doh! The two that I didn't get were Ghost in the Shell: Innocence and Wolf Brigade, but I've actually got Innocence on dvd at home and all >_>

Ah well, good job Gravel.

Akira is by far my favourite out of those. Closely followed by the 2 Ghibli ones.

Oh Morrinn, you should do a Horror movies round at some stage :D

06-01-2009, 02:13 PM
Ahh I should have got a couple more. But I was no where NEAR 8. Well done Gravel!

uhm, high noon is like a minute or two, shadows @ noon are short or non-existent, the sun doesn't really penetrate all the way to the floor of deep chasms... so therefore, it would be a shadow amongst shadows or indistinguishable from the others around it, or perhaps even "lost". Let simmer for 5 minutes. Pepper w/Led Zeppelin norse lyric... decoding of Gravel-speak.

I understood it before the breakdown..... is that wrong? But I am confused about living in paradise if "he comes from the land of the ice and snow"? I do too but paradise isn't a tag I'd use. lol

btw - Congrats Gravel! Turns out I've only seen one of those films so I don't feel so bad about not knowing them. :) Bring on the next round!

Which one's that? If its not Akira... GO SEE IT NAAOOWW :D

Seriously, its generally considered the best animated film ever. And there's good reason for it.

Gravel
06-02-2009, 07:37 PM
Akira is great... no doubt, but after that, it was the first Ghost in the Shell that had me picking gum and sticky popcorn crumbs out my jaw as I scooped it up off the theatre floor... Grave of the Fireflies, is another great anime known for it's emotional scope (sad) and sepia tones.

I whole-heartedly suggest LAIN:Serial Experiments, Iria (somethin-somethin Zeiram the animation), Haibane Renmei, and Cowboy Beebop! for cool episodic fun...(For great art I love; Voices of a Distant Star; 5 centimeters per second... which looks very much like selection #4 from the quiz; Magnetic Rose ( which i haven't seen yet and got it wrong))

Incidently, it was a good genre for me, I've got 3 cats named; Ryoko, Ayeka, and Tenchi all named after Tenchi Muyo! characters and have several cels.

Ya know, I was thinking about you Vortex the other day... you & anime.

There is no denying there is a cultural gap in the art, language, and most predominantly in how the story is told. I find every time I watch a particular anime, it strikes me in a completely new and different way. I am always 'adjusting' my understanding of the story with each and every viewing... it really is quite an amazing thing. Therefore I would suggest finding a film or subject matter that you find an emotional tie too!

Good Luck to all next week!

Morgana25
06-02-2009, 07:42 PM
Yup - Akira was the only one I've seen. I got into Lodus Wars, Vampire Hunter D, and Vampire Princess Miyu though. None of which were in the contest - probably for good reason but I like them ;)

Pitcard
06-02-2009, 07:49 PM
Good to hear :P

Virtually all the Ghibli movies are worth checking out. I'd probably start with Spirited Away, as it had the most commercial success. I really should check out Grave of Fireflies, it sounds awesome.

I really liked My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Pom Poko. They all deal with environmental issues, and all manage to leave an emotional impact. Not to mention being incredibly cute.....errr not that I'm into that kinda thing, right?

The movie quiz might continue one day, I'll be sure to keep you posted, brother.

No worries, I won't be locking today even thought it was a legendary thread resurrection. One for the books, certainly.

In all seriousness, I was a big fan of this thread before even thought I just dropped by from time to time to have a peek. I'd like to see it come back anytime Morrin would see it fit.
