Guess That Movie: LXXI

November 11th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Guess That Movie Round 71Yes – it’s back! Bigger (well, erm, nope, the images are still 110×110), longer (erm, probably not) and uncut! Erm…

Anyway – Sorry about the long hiatus: it was unplanned, but time constraints and high work loads meant I hardly had time to check my email: let alone entries (let alone take screengrabs). I will try and ensure the next round is on time though – talking of rounds: congratulations to lawrie for correctly recognising Guess That Movie 70 as being from Scream Three!

For those of you who are new, read on for the details of the competition and the prizes you could win – otherwise, just make your guess by leaving a comment with your name (or alias), email address (real one please: only I can see them anyway and I hate spam), web site address (totally optional) and the name of the movie you are guessing at.

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 on the right 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=Β£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.

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".

    No guesses yet? Hmmm, I know it’s slightly unclear – but, yep, that is a leg under water…

  2. How about Piranha? Just a guess.

  3. I’ll guess The Ring since it had some water scenes in it. πŸ™‚

  4. Richy C. says:

    Nope to “Piranha”, Nope to “Jaws” and Nope to “The Ring”.

    If it’s any help, this movie was released within the past 3 years: but exactly how recently, I’m not saying.

  5. Christopher says:

    What i about to happen in this picture?

  6. Richy C. says:

    Christopher: To be honest with you, I can’t remember…. However, I do know that’s a leg off (female) off the side of a surf board in the blue sea….

  7. Dr G says:

    Would that be the Deep Blue Sea, Richy?

  8. Richy C. says:

    You mean the 1999 shark-fest Movie “Deep Blue Sea” starring Thomas Jane as Carter Blake, Saffron Burrows as Dr. Susan McCallister and LL Cool J as Sherman ‘Preacher’ Dudley? The one where that person on a helicopters stretcher got Crushed in the sharks jaws?

    If so, nope – it isn’t that movie, but you’re on the right track (and there’s another clue in the post somewhere).

  9. Well done Kymberlie – another correct one!

  10. Thank you, thank you very much! πŸ˜€

  11. Dr G says:

  13. Dr G says:

    Not so much as Richie’s Random Ramblings as Richie’s Rarely Ramblings πŸ˜‰

  14. Valencia says:

    Is it “Pitch Black”, starring the very sexy Mr. Vin Diesel?

  15. Kamron says:

  24. Dr G says:

    Good God, there’s still life in this site yet! Nice idea jillian, but a tad late in the day, seeing as Kymberlie got the right answer on November 19th 2003!!!!! πŸ˜‰
