Snippet: Double Points on Guess That Movie

Guess That Movie 58Wow! Nobody managed to guess the current Guess That Movie image so for the next 48 hours I’m going to be awarding a massive 200 points to the first person to correctly recognise the screenshot.

It is NOT from:

  • Mad Max Beyond The Thunderdrome (or any of the Mad Max series)
  • Poltergeist (or any of its sequels)
  • Small Soldiers
  • Osmosis Jones (I’ve never heard of this film anyway!)
  • Spy Kids 2 (it’s not Spy Kids 1 either)

Ok: additional clues:

  • It’s a spin off of a TV series
  • There is some allegedly Latin spoken in this movie, but it isn’t real Latin
  • Liza Minelli, Brooke Shields, Barbra Streisand and Winona Ryder were NOT in this movie
  • The scene in the movie where this screen shot was taken from doesn’t really “look like” the rest of the movie

Have fun and have a guess!

Snippet: Make Mental Note

Note to self: Read Homer’s Odyssey (I’ve always wondered where the story of the wooden horse of Troy and the children’s TV series Ulysses originated) and then Macbeth and Hamlet.

TV: Wow! Europe hates us

EurovisionFirst of all, congratulations go to Turkey for winning the 2003 Eurovision contest with Sertab Erener’s “Everyway that I can” (even though it reminded me a lot of Shakira’s “Whenever, Whereever”).

However, I’ve found out that Europe must hate us, because our entry of Jemini’s “Cry Baby” left Eurovision with a great big fat zero – zilch – none – “nil points”. That’s right: for the first time in the 46 years, the UK failed to gather a single point. I’m actually shocked as I didn’t think our song was that bad!
