[Game] What is the title of these movies?

Recommended Posts

Here's a little game for you, fellow Aquilonian/Corinthian/Gotham citizen! :happy:

 

Rules:

- Propose two screenshots of different movies, one of a movie that is quite easy to recognize, one of a movie that you find hard to identify.

- The first to give a good answer can post two other screenshots, with the same rules. If they recognizes the 'easy' movie, they scores 1 point; if they recognizes the 'difficult' movie, they scores 3 points; if they recognizes both movies, they scores 5 points. Please wait for the previous player to validate your answer before posting your screenshots (you could be mistaken).

- Nota Bene: Searching the image through a search engine, is, obviously forbidden, as it kills the fun. But the players may search the movie through search engines using the additional clues that could be given if the other players can't recognize the movie by the screenshot only.

 

Hall of fame:

@Not Quite Dead - 28 points

@Footballzs - 18 points

@Kathulos - 15 points

@Bawon Samdi - 13 points

@Stonewolf - 11 points

@Grimmshade - 1 point

@Mekhlis - 1 point

Update of the rules, thanks to Bawon Samdi's input.

Nope and nope (but I can see why you thought it was Pan's Labyrinth, it was a nice try. :) ).

 

A clue for each movie:

 

Easy movie: that picture comes from the prologue of the movie. Once grown up, the character on the right is played by Arnold Schwartzenegger.

 

Difficult movie: it's an horror movie starring Tim Robbins.

I really love Jacob's Ladder. I saw it several years ago and it became a cult classic for me.

 

Well, that's not simple to know what's easy and what is not. For now, I will stick to UK/US movies and delve into arcane foreign movies another time. :orthopuristes:

 

The easy one:

I would rather say "unfair" since there is no rules that explecitly forbid it (it would be impossible to enforce anyway).

But that's just something i thought was worth mentioning, don't put to much thoughts into it. Let's play. :smile:

 

I'll drop the first hint tomorrow morning !

For the easy one: City Lights?

 

Spoiler

Just kidding. I'm quite sure I have seen this.. but I can't remember in which movie...

 

Let's see... A city in the night... An eye watching it. Doesn't seem to be one of the Batman movies... So I'd say:

 

Bringing out the dead? by Scorsese? (Not sure about that at all.)

 

No idea for the hard one so far.

Nope.

OK, here is the hint: the same composer did both orginal (and very iconic) scores. Actually, the score of the difficult movie is probably better known that the movie itself.

Hah! I got it!

 

Easy Movie: Blade Runner (1982)

 

Difficult Movie: Chariots of Fire (1981)

 

Once I found the easy one, the difficult was easy with your clue, although I haven't seen it. Is it good?

Both correct.

Chariots of Fire is surprisingly good. I mean, i'm not really attracted by movies about running but it's much more thant that. It's also about class warfare, antisemitism, religion, ... And the running scene are very well directed. They remind me of the boat race in Social Network with their contrast between a traditional race and electronic music.

 

Your turn.

Sorry: maybe that rule wasn't clear: the round stops with the first good answer, regardless of the number of movies found.

I was actually waiting to see if someone would join. Let's ry with a clue.

 

For the easy movie:

the picture is the monster's POV

 

For the difficult movie:

the main character that you can see on the picture is played by James Stewart.
