HOST GAME - Nunis - Round 6

#1 Post by Nunis » 10 May 2003, 09:09

The Filmmaker's Recognition Round

Ok, kids, we know that you know your movies and moviestars pretty well, but how well do you know your filmmakers? The men (mostly) behind the camera bring us endless hours of fun and... pain, but can you recognise them? This game will test how well you read your movie mags.

Anyway, here are the rules for this round:
* 40 pictures, 0.5 points each
* Send guesses to me, via PM, and please be sure to number them correctly
* You only get one guess per picture, so use them wisely
* I will inform you how well you have done, if I am online
* The use of IMDb is strictly prohibited. I know I can't check on you, but please be honest!
* Finally, this round will be relatively easy

Good luck!!

Sorry for the size of this post, if you don't want to wait for the page to load, you can download a zipped file with all 40 pics by clicking here.

Out of the 40, I am guessing most people will know at least 25, but yeah, a few are a bit tricky. That's the point though. And a handful of them, I'd be very surprised if anyone gets. But that's the point. :)

I'm sorry :oops: Maybe not everyone pays as much attention to photos and stuff in mags as I do.

Still, I think it's original and I hope you will enjoy it.

I have added a link in my original post where you can download a zipped file with all 40 piccies, so you can view them in your own time. Might be handy for people with slow connections.

Official count. I know 6. How crap. There are about another 6 that are bugging me cos I know them.

I think I know 19 of them, with another 5 or 6 maybes. But we'll have to see. Also how would you cheat on this? Unless you click on every director in imdb and try and match up the picks.

He was glad to get it.

I've spent a bit of time looking through them all and racking my brains. I think I now know about 18 now. And I know one that Ze didn't get, 40.

Thanx

Todd, please do send in your answers anyway. It would be interesting to see how you do.

Also, I am updating the leaderboard. Still only submissions from 4 people.

We have a new leader in alan smithee (who is slowly gaining status as king of FilmWise games), with 32 correct answers.

There are also now only 2 still unidentified images, #22 and #34.

I have updated the leaderboard.

gentle was the first one to guess #22 correctly, still no one (except Todd, who's not playing) knows #34.

Keep guessing, kids! :)

A new leader in Gren, who managed to not only snag two more pictures to get ahead in the game, but was also the first official player (except for Todd, who's not playing) to get #34. Well done Gren!
