How many stills does it take to guess the movie?
« on: September 09, 2009, 02:47:43 AM »
Inspired by Corndog's posting of a bunch of stills from Forest Gump I thought this might be a fun excersise:

In a single message, post five stills from a fairly popular movie.   Spread them apart and go from abstract to obvious to challenge others on how many it takes to guess the movie.  (Since the last still should be a dead giveaway it's not like other games where we wait around for people to answer, so you might as well put the answer after the last still).

Example:

It took me to number 4 to guess it correctly. Though, I have never seen it.

Was thinking Three Colours: Blue initially, then got Blade Runner on picture 4.

I got it on the first pic.  To me, that's a pretty iconic shot/scene from Blade Runner.

and

shouldn't this be in Movie Games?
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Is it sad that I got both of those on their first stills?
