Guess That Movie: XXXVI: My Big Fat Greek Wedding

March 9th, 2003

[Guess That Movie Round 36]Kymberlie R. McGuire managed to do it (picking up 100 points) yet again by correctly guessing the image from Guess That Movie 35 was taken from “The Silence Of The Lambs” [Order from Amazon.co.uk] amazoncom:B00005LINB (yep, you can click on either of those links to by the movie from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com respectively). In fact, buy buy buy – it’s “prize giving time” at the end of this round, and it looks like it’s going to be costing me a pretty penny once I’ve topped up the scores.

Nobody’s yet had a go at the bonus round, so here it is again, but with a reduced bonus of 15 points as I’m giving away extra clues. The aim? Be the first person to make the necessary “degrees of separation” between the actress Dervla Kirwan and the comedian Lenny Henry. Here’s the clues: Dervla was in Goodnight Sweetheart with Nicholas Lyndhurst, whilst Lenny is married to Dawn French who appears in a large number of programmes (too numerous to name) with her “comedy partner” Jennifer Saunders. Now you’ve just got to complete the connection between Nicholas and Jennifer – there’s not that many more steps to go.

Oh – and here’s round 36 (already? *shocked*) of the “Guess That Movie” game.

Games: Bombing Bush

March 9th, 2003

[Bomb Bush]Yep, at long last I’m blogging about another game! Yippee! In fact, it’s been a whole month since I last blogged about a game (Grid Lock) and I’ll try and not make it so long again.

In George W. Bush: National Missile Defense you control Dubya and his pretty little umbrella and have just got to save the Whitehouse from a missile by bouncing it off the top of your umbrella. Use your mouse to control him and make him move left and right – but just don’t get distracted by Tony Blair popping around for a cup of tea.

60 is my highest score so far, but “allegedly” someone has managed to score 36,129 – considering the remaining of the scores top 129 I think 129 is the highest score so far.

Guess That Movie: XXXV: Silence Of The Lambs

March 9th, 2003

[Guess That Movie Round 35]Yesss! At long last, somebody has beaten Kymberlie in correctly guessing that movie! Round 34 saw newcomer “Shaun” recognising the screenshot as being taken from Forrest Gump [Order from Amazon.co.uk] amazoncom:B00003CXA2 before Kymberlie did! I was beginning to get worried that Kymberlie was the only player 🙂

I’m just about to try and go to sleep now (drinking a pint of “simulation drink” packed with caffeine was a bad idea), but see how well you go at recognising this shot of somebody’s back. It should be reasonably difficult, but it was a popular movie a few years ago (I’m not saying how many though) so it should still be recognisable.

Oh – and I’m giving an extra 25 points away to the first person to make the necessary “degrees of separation” between the actress Dervla Kirwan and the comedian Lenny Henry. To start you off, Dervla starred in “Goodnight Sweetheart” and Lenny’s married to Dawn French – but can you complete the connection between “Goodnight Sweetheart” and Dawn French? Remember, these bonus points are “extras” – you don’t even have to “guess that movie” to try and make the connection, but you can do if you want. I can connect them with a total of 8 people in the chain: the lowest number of people in the chain the better!
