Name that Film!

Postby Ptangmatik » 14 Jan 2013, 14:09

Ok! I had a quick (I'm lazy) hunt around and couldn't find one of these, so I thought I'd try starting one, see what happens:

Rules are fairly basic: 1 person posts a screenshot from a movie, everyone else has to guess which it is.

If you guess correctly, the screenshot poster confirms you guessed correctly then it is your turn to post screens from a new film, be sure to check if anyone's guessed reasonably often.

Screenshots have to be at least vaguely guessable (distinctive is the word): No stock footage that the film referenced, no whole-screen-motion-blur, no Paramount logo, etc. Also no nudity or graphic violence please

If no one guesses correctly in 24-72 hours (at your own discretion), post a new screenshot of the same movie

EDIT: Rule of 'Yoink' If the thread stalls for 3 days or so without a reason given, (ie. film has been guessed correctly and confirmed, but the guesser doesn't post a new film) anyone can post a new film

Note: VLC has a 'take snapshot' option, you may also find a screenshot online, maybe put it on photobucket or whatever and rename it so it can't be googled

I'll go first

It's not one of the ones I recommended to King Kool, though he should watch this too if he hasn't already

Quick point of order, what's the best way to get screenshots from films? Screencapping the DVD or finding them on Google?

VLC has a 'take snapshot' option in the 'video' tab

I'll clarify in the 1st post

Here we go, a really good but depressingly unheard of film:

Excellent

This one should hopefully leave a few more heads scratched

I know this movie, but I can't think of it's name.

I'll just facepalm when someone gets it.

Can't seem to play it in VLC - I'm trying to get a cap from a blu ray. Someone else should take my go for now.
