Guess That Movie: LXV: In The Eyes Of A Stranger

Guess That Movie Round 65Congratulations are due to Quida for being a new contestant and for correctly recognising that the screen shot taken for Guess That Movie Round 64 was taken from the film Joe’s Apartment. Welcomes are also due to “Mike” and “BioBoy” for also having a go at recognising that film.

However, since that image has now been guess, it’s time for Guess That Movie round 65! For those who are new here, basically Guess That Movie (GTM) is a little competition where you have “simply” just got to recognise which movie the screen shot on the left has been taken from. I say “simply” as sometimes, it’s not quite obvious which movie it is (yes, the screenshot has been cropped and resized – but I’ve done nothing else to it).

Why bother guessing? Well, there are prizes to be won! Yep – prizes for a “free to enter competition” (well, I get a little kick back from the Google Adsense adverts at the top of each page which is just covering the prize fund: otherwise it comes out of my back pocket). What’s the prizes? At the moment, they are Amazon gift vouchers (for your local Amazon store in your local currency), but I’m open to suggestions.

What’s the value of the FREE to win Amazon gift vouchers? Well, it just depends on how quickly and accurately the image is guessed. As soon as I post each image, it’s worth 100 points and each 100points=£1 (roughly US$1.62 or 1.40EUR). However, each wrong guess brings the value down by 5 points and the value decreases over time. After 12 hours, it’s worth 10 points less – 12 hours after that and another 10 points are knocked off, and then 10 points for every 24 hours after that. Oh – and you can only claim a prize once you’ve collected 500 points.

Go on, have a go and Guess That Movie!

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. A Simple Plan?

  2. Nope, sorry – it isn’t “A Simple Plan”.

    Here’s a clue: Look into their eyes and the name of the movie will emerge – after all, what are you looking into?

  3. Totally at a loss. Tried all kinds of stuff, but haven’t been able to figure it out.
