Guess That Movie: Scores So Far III

February 20th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

[Guess That Movie images 19 to 27]Phew, has it really been another 9 images in Guess That Movie? The last image (number 27) was correctly recognised as being the non-pornographic “but about the industry” type movie Boogie Nights [Order from Amazon.co.uk] which starred Mark “Planet Of the Apes” Wahlberg as Dirk Diggler, Burt Reynolds as Jack Horner as Heather “Austin Powers 2/Lost In Space” Graham as “Rollergirl”. New comer “Blue Neon Head” correctly recognised it (and the “pornographic movie actress in real life” Nina Hartley) earning him/her/it an initial 80 points.

How does the score board read at the moment then? Well, I’ll be shortly contacting “Ph33r_m3” to ask him which Amazon store he wants his gift voucher for (he’s scored 590 points which equates to a £5.90 voucher for Amazon UK or the equivalent currency in the Amazon store of his choice), Kymberlie just missed out on a prize by getting 480 points (20 points shy of the “prize level”), third place we have LD with 445 points – then “Super Beastmaster” with 280. In joint fifth position with 100 points is andersja, Toby and KHD – 8th position is held by “Blue Neon Head” with 80 points and trailing at the back of the pack is “Dr G” with just 60 points.

Since I’ve been having computer problems recently, I haven’t been able to complete the work on the new Guess That Movie site so I’m going to do something I’ll probably regret… I’m going to keep GTM running here for another 9 rounds and keep the points rolling. Therefore if Kymberlie gets another 120 points she’ll be entitled to a £6 voucher in 9 rounds time – if a brand new new comer (yes you – the one that’s been too shy to guess up to now!) wants to try and manages to get all 9 images correct with the first guess within 12hours of posting: then they’ll be walking away with a FREE £9 Amazon gift certificate!

I’ll try and get the next round up and running as soon as I can (should be in the next hour or so). Good luck – and congratulations Ph33r_m3 – expect an email from me within the next 3 days!

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

  1. Dang, so close and yet so far. The Cure should have been worth more points because it was so hard. 🙂

  2. Well, the new GTM system will have provisioning for “difficulty levels”, but how it’ll work will be a different matter. Some images I’ve thought have been really really difficult to recognise, and yet been guessed within minutes – others take days and I’m scratching my head thinking “Why is it taking so long”.

    At least you’ve still got your 480 points – and only a few minutes or so to wait for the new image (I’m aiming to have it up at midnight).
