Guess That Movie: XLV: Braveheart

March 28th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Guess That Movie Round 35Yes, we had YET ANOTHER new contestant win a round of “Guess That Movie” – “SithAngel” managed to recognise that the image to Guess That Movie 44 was from the hit movie “American Pie 2” [Order from Amazon.co.uk] amazoncom:B00003CY6D – narrowly beating new contestant “lily” as well (unfortunately, Jay‘s very first guess of Thelma and Louise was either completely wrong or he’s seen a much more different version of T+L then I remember!).

Here’s a very uninteresting snippet of information for you: I watched American Pie 2 before I saw number 1 – and before I saw either of them, I watched the extremely funny comedy/spoof/trailer American Jedi (American Pie meets Star Wars: download it from Jedinet). It’s nearly 9 minutes long, looks like a “trailer” for a movie, and I wish it had been made into a proper feature length film as it’s incredibly funny.

Anyway – on with the contest. For those of you who are just joining us here at the Guess That Movie contest, the idea of the game is to just recognise which movie I’ve taken the screen shot from. The only criteria is that I can authenticate that the screen shot is from the movie – so it could be a DVD my parents rented, a film I’ve got on DVD, a VHS copy I found etc: and it could date from 1900s to the present day (although the oldest movie I’ve featured so far has been 1917) – and there’s no fixed genre (although my love of comedy and sci-fi movies may show through from time to time).

Once you think you know which movie the screen shot has been taken from, have a go and Guess That Movie – just leave a comment with your name (or an alias – I don’t mind), email address (which WILL be hidden from anybody but me) and your guess and I’ll say if you are right or wrong. If you are right, you’re instantly entered into the competition – each image, as soon as it’s been posted, is worth “100 points”. Each incorrect guess by anybody removes 5 points from the number of available points. And there’s another catch – after 12 hours from posting, the image loses another 10 points, 24 hours from posting another 10 and then every 24 hours after that…. So if there are 10 incorrect guesses (10×5=50) and it’s been 2 days since the image was posted (10+10+10), then then image will only be worth 20 points – and you’ll need a total of 500 points before you can claim a prize.

Yep, once you’ve got 500 points you are entitled to an Amazon gift certificate based on the conversation rate of 1point=1pence sterling. So 500 points equals a £5 gift voucher (of course, converted into the currency of the Amazon store of your choosing).

So get guessing!

And, here’s an extra “guess that childrens TV programme if you want from the lyrics, but no extra points are available” bit:

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".
