I had fun making them, anyway.

I don't mean to be a jerk, but just to clarify the rules. Is it possible that the character/body shown in the picture is not a real person, but merely inspired by the person whose head is shown? Obviously there are two movies I think it is and the answer to this question will help a great deal. Thanks.
I don't mean to be a jerk, but if you've narrowed it down to two movies, can't you just go check one of the movies for the shot?
Please don't interfere. I was looking forward to the first FW fatality.

No. I don't own either movie and it's not worth it to go rent them. I thought it was a simple question for a game that's supposed to be for fun. I was hoping Nunis would clarify her rules. If that annoys you guys then I'm sorry. I didn't think my little question required 6 responses without giving me an actual answer.

#8 isn't a biopic of the person you have pictured. That person's biopic is not what that screenshot is from.

Nunis wrote:Oh shut up. I merely picked some real people, picked 20 movies which were somehow based on their lives, or inspired by them.

I just can't go a game without people complaining. Why do I even bother?

Ok, let me clarify. I took 20 real people on whom movies have been based; found shots for these either online or using my DVDs. It's quite possible not all these shots even appear in the movie; I don't care.

I assume you're talking about #8. And yes, it is the movie you first think it is, even though it's not a biopic per se. I'd like to point out though that I never used the word biopic. It shouldn't be that hard to figure out what "inspired by" mean. And if you've narrowed it down to two movies, and want to blame an inability to figure out which one it is on my "unclear" rules, well then you can eat me.

I hate to be a brown nose, but I don't see what people are having such problems with. People think too much, that's the problem.

Apparently, some people find "inspired by true events and based on real people" to be a concept too difficult to comprehend.

Sorry about all the fuss. I thought I had Todd under control... But he never listen. However, he wasn't the only one to have trouble reading english eh ?

I think Gren is implying that he wished the forum kibbitzing would help him identify that shot.

People who complain because they can't/don't get all the answers in a fucking free internet movie quiz need a swift fuckin' dose of reality.

Nunis made the game for the fun of it and to try to entertain you douchebags. I'm sure she has better and/or more constructive things to do with her time than listen to your punkasses gripe about this stupid shit.

Now shut the fuck up or drop the fuck out. Maybe World of Warfare or Naked Simms or whatever else dumb-ass computer game is more up your alley.
