Name That Movie For 3/06/18

Think you know your movies?

Think you could recognize a movie based on a single frame? That’s the question we pose every week with our game. We give you five stills and it’s up to you to guess which movie they belong to. Some are pretty easy to recognize while others can be damn near impossible. We hope that through this game you will come to appreciate movies in a whole new way. Remember: we’ve updated the rules ever-so-slightly so you’ll want to check those out before sending us your answers.

 

As always, check out our leaderboards later in the week to see how you did.

Here are the rules!

1. Guess the movie correctly on the first try and get the full 5 points, with a potential for 25 points per week. Guess correctly on the second try for 4 points, with the potential reduced to 20. Subsequent guesses reduce the potential of each right answer after that, with a guaranteed minimum of 1 point per correct guess.

 

2. Submit answers by messaging our Facebook Page or by emailing us at athpodcast@gmail.com. You can answer in the comments below, but it’s visible for all to see and you might give away the answers!

 

3. Points will be tallied on the leaderboard at the end of the week and can be found HERE!

 

4. The rules will be revised and perfected over time, and we will honor the player should any dispute arise.

Let’s do this!
