Nice to see Cube getting some love.

16/28, and of that 16 I've only seen 8, so that ain't so bad, right? Right?

11. Like Alvy, a few of those were for movies I've never seen.

Grrr. Missing 9. Some of them are on the tip of my tongue too. Of course, some of them I have no idea about.

Man, what's #3? It's killing me!!! I've got them all but that one.

i got 14... and I'm legally blind... i read the braille versions of the ones i got...
posted by dawdle at 11:50 AM on July 27, 2006


I'm glad I didn't say which ones I was missing. I'm determined not to get help just yet.

(since when is Sean William Scott a player? Also, 20. looks so damn familliar, but I can't place it.)

I highly recommend movie 21. Funny as hell.

20/28. that was unbelievably easy, there are only a few that are remotely challenging.
posted by jimmy at 11:53 AM on July 27, 2006


oh, and 21 was self-indulgent bullshit. avoid like the plague.
posted by jimmy at 11:54 AM on July 27, 2006


I've done all three quizzes, and I'm averaging about 75%. It would be more fun and more accurate if these were actual vidcaps and not photos they found from GIS. For example, numbers 9 and 14 are full-color films, not black & white and sepia, respectively...

All I know is that 21 isn't The Ref

Man, what's #3? It's killing me!!! I've got them all but that one. ;)

jimmy: How are you still missing 8 when there are only a few that are remotely challenging?
posted by ODiV at 12:01 PM on July 27, 2006


those eight you see? those eight are the few that are remotely challenging. the other 20 stills were the ones that were unbelievably easy.
posted by jimmy at 12:03 PM on July 27, 2006


My thoughts exactly
posted by clearlynuts at 12:04 PM on July 27, 2006


Very easy, although I can't be bothered spending ages tracking down the few I can't get.
posted by fire&wings at 12:06 PM on July 27, 2006


oh, and it's worth noting that it refused to acknowledge any sensible spelling of #17. so i'm content in the knowledge that it's more like 21/28 :)
posted by jimmy at 12:06 PM on July 27, 2006


If anyone cares to cheat, the full list can be found in this thread. Some pretty obscure ones in there.
posted by Joe Invisible at 12:07 PM on July 27, 2006


Oh, ok. I was thinking " a few" like 3 or 4...

I was thinking that some of the ones I've gotten were remotely challenging. Wouldn't want to just give myself credit for the easy ones. :p
posted by ODiV at 12:08 PM on July 27, 2006


#17 is spelt the same as it is on the DVD cover, but it took me a few tries as well. :)
posted by ODiV at 12:11 PM on July 27, 2006


Jimmy did you put in the comma?
posted by Flashman at 12:11 PM on July 27, 2006


"Biggus...dickus?"

I work in the goddamn film industry, and I can only get 13. Annoyed. Still, I am sleep-deprived. That's my excuse.
posted by bokeh at 12:12 PM on July 27, 2006


15? Must be a Bond flick, but judging from the newness of that Peugeot it's one that no sensible person could have watched.
posted by Flashman at 12:15 PM on July 27, 2006


My girlfriend and I scored 21 out of 28.

We couldn't get #4, #8, #15, #20, #24, #25, and #26.

20-27 (correct) – You go to the movies a lot, eh? Pretty amazing score, you got some (if not all) of the tricky ones. Amazing job all around. You should be proud.

We're still trying to complete it. This is fun.
posted by defenestration at 12:18 PM on July 27, 2006


Flashman: #15 is not a Bond flick, though it does seem like it ought to be.
posted by Joe Invisible at 12:18 PM on July 27, 2006


oh, and 21 was self-indulgent bullshit. avoid like the plague.

I have to beg to differ. It was by no means fantastic, but it was entertaining. Worth viewing for a comedic take on noir.

This just wouldn't be Metafilter if someone didn't say this was hardly FPP material. So, even though I don't mean it,

"This is not deserving of an FPP."
posted by chinese_fashion at 12:21 PM on July 27, 2006


Flashman: Yeah. I'm trying a bunch of Bond titles without resorting to IMDB. No luck yet.

(on preview: thanks Joe)

defenestration: I just guessed #4 based on what she's holding and how recent the movie looked. #8 I got only because it is featured in one of my favourite films. I'm with you on the rest though, plus some more.

#17 will not validate if you include an Oxford comma.
posted by infidelpants at 12:23 PM on July 27, 2006


I loved #21, but maybe I was just in the right mood.

Lots I cant' get, at 14 correct right now. 15 is driving me crazy (tried Bond flicks too).

14? I know I should know it...maybe the spelling or punctuation is getting me.

"Biggus...dickus?"

Can anyone tell me who Biggus Dickus' wife is? I was never able to understand what Pilate was saying through that ridiculous accent?

The way the centurians busted up, I'm guessing it's pretty damn funny.

Her name is Incontinentia.
Incontinentia Buttocks.

Three words. No punctuation!

btw I'd be surprised if anyone gets #25

I have a vewy good fwend in wome named biggus dickus.

I hate these quizzes. Not because I can't get them (I can; no issue there) -- it's that if you don't punctuate it exactly teh way it demands, you aren't "correct." Or, worse still, tell me why The Empire Strikes Back is wrong and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is more correct than Star Wars, Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

If I was on a quiz show and I said "The Empire Strikes Back," I'd get it right. This thing depends on the quizzer's ability to spell and punctuate properly.

#15 is french, and was recently remade - horribly.

6am: easy after that clue. I should've been able to tell from the bumper. :(

15/28, then I cheated.

Ah yes, thanks. (What an unusual name.)
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 1:47 PM on July 27, 2006


I like the variants on this done by Filmbrain and Cinemarati, where all the stills are actual frame grabs and the answers can be really tough (and/or head-smackingly obvious -- but only after someone else get's 'em right). You don't get instant gratification, though, because you haveta wait for the "host" of the quiz to come back to validate/invalidate everyone's guesses.
posted by Joey Bagels at 2:02 PM on July 27, 2006


#17 will not validate if you include an Oxford comma.

I did not know that had a name, or that there were arguments against using one.

I suppose my gradeschool teachers were purests, but forgetting that comma would result in marks off a grade. I have always insisted it be used because I have always thought it was correct, and that it was like the apostrophe... just something alot of people get wrong.

arse, i watched #22 the other week and still didn't get it.

I got 15. I feel so, so ashamed.

posted by jimmy at 3:04 PM on July 27, 2006


Yeh, it's an Oxford comma if (like Oxfordians) you support it.

If you dislike it, on the other hand, it's a "serial comma."

If you're sane, you choose to use it when you want the rhythm, and you leave it out when you don't. It's less of an eyesore than using ellipses all over the damn place.

Also, the movie rocked.

I'm proud that I have wasted little enough of my life that I scored 3.

Oh crap, I'm on Metafilter.
posted by darksasami at 3:31 PM on July 27, 2006


a lot

How ironic, eh?

ellipses

Is that what people are calling the pause periods... (literally) these days, or is that not the same?

Thanks for that infidelpants, I knew I had the correct movie and was getting irritated that it wasn't taking it.

18 without cheating.

/unabashedly proud movie fan.

//angry i didn't get all 28.
