Movies: Guess Which Movie I’m going to see?

Despite this post having the inital title of “Guess Which Movie”, it isn’t part of the “Guess That Movie” competition (which, by the way, has round 58 unguessed), but rather me getting a little bit excited at the movie I’m going to be seeing tomorrow. Basically, I’ve managed to get my boss to treat us all for a “staff afternoon out” (we’re closing around 1pmish) and we’re all heading down to a cinema to see a certain movie: and I bet you can all guess what it is…. Whilst it has been having mixed reviews, the trailer that I saw last night on TV (around 3 minutes long) clinched it for me and I’m really looking forward to seeing it now! Especially since SSCW will be going as well and we’ve been getting on quite well recently. I’ll let you know my thoughts upon my return.

Poll: Personality Disorder

Well, according to the Personality Disorder Test, I have a very high chance being Schizoid: People with schizoid personality disorder avoid relationships and do not show much emotion. They genuinely prefer to be alone and do not secretly wish for popularity. Well, I don’t tend to avoid relationships – but I do tend to keep myself to myself and I’m not bothered whether I’m popular or not. They tend to seek jobs that require little social contact. Any sort of computer work is a solitary sort of job, although I have had jobs where I came in contact with several hundred people a day! I don’t mind either way. Their social skills are often weak and they do not show a need for attention or acceptance. Disagree with the first part, agree with the latter. They are perceived as humourless and distant and often are termed “loners.” Ditto. I’m also at a moderate chance of being Schizotypal (mild schizophrenia) – which I do agree with as I’m of the belief that everybody is schizophrenic to a degree (if you think you’ve got a consciousness isn’t that “a voice in your head talking to you?”). Make of it what you will……

Guess That Movie: LVIII: SouthPark: Bigger, Longer, Uncut

Righto, it seems Kymberlie was on the ball yesterday and managed to recognise round 57 as being from “Men In Black” within 20minutes (earning her another 100 points), but let’s see how you all fair in this round of Guess That Movie. Just leave a comment with your name/alias, email address (for the prize givings) and the name of the movie you think this screen shot is taken from. If you guess that movie correctly, I’ll award you some points. Points start at 100 per image and decline over time (after the first 12 hours it goes down by 10 points, then down a further 10 points every 24hours after posting) – oh and wrong guesses have a 5 point penalty. But what good are points? Well, get 500 points and you can claim a £5 Amazon gift voucher/certificate for the Amazon store of your choice (£5 will be converted into the appropriate currency at the exchange rates displayed on xe.net at the time of claim) – so you can get free books, movies and music just by playing a simple FREE guessing game! A: South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut. No winner

Snippet: Server Downtime

*snippet* Just so everybody knows, the Beebware network of sites (which includes my personal blog) will be unavailable for 30-60 minutes today whilst server maintenance is carried out: so if you suddenly get “Could not reach server” errors, don’t worry – just have a cup of tea and a slice of toast and come back later. The next Guess That Movie image won’t be up until the server maintenance is complete: so give it until around 1700 BST (1600 GMT)
