Name That Movie For 8/07/17

The Tip of My Brain Movie Game is back, but with a twist!

8/14/17 EDIT:

This game is over and a new one can be found HERE!

 

 

We wanted to change things up for this week’s movie game, so we’ve made it 100% more competitive. We’re adding a point value to each still and if you guess the correct movie, you get the points. We’ve created a leaderboard page where you can brag about your score to all your friends and enemies, and at the end of the month we’ll award the person with the most points an achievement banner like you might see on the XBOX or PLAYSTATION. If this new system works, we’ll look into adding extra rewards.

 

And now for the twist: The first still expires Tuesday morning, making those points impossible to get. Wednesday morning Movie #2 will be gone, and so on. If you come to this game today and get all the answers correct, you’ll get 25 points. However, if you come to this game on Friday, you’ll only have one still to guess and your possible points will be 5. We’ll throw in a bonus question or still on Friday to give a little boost, but you’ll be at a severe disadvantage if you wait.

 

 

EDIT:

Thanks to some feedback I’m putting the rules in this post in a more clear and concise list. I’m also updating the point system a little, which should hopefully favor first responders a little bit over late responders, but still keep things fair and competitive. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep giving us feedback, and as always, we’ll always favor the player if any goofs or inconsistencies pop up in the rules.

RULES:

1. First right guess is worth 5 points, second right guess is worth 4 points, and all other right guesses after are 3 points.
2. Each image is tied to a day and after that day the image is gone, and with it the possibility for those points. A “day” changes over when we make the edit to the post, so anything up to that moment counts.
3. A bonus question or image will be revealed on Friday and will follow Rule #1.
4. Only answers on this post count toward your score.

Let’s get this game started!

A Game of Thrones Musicapalooza!

A spotify playlist based on the deadly fantasy world of Game of Thrones!

We’re well on our way through Season Seven of Game of Thrones, so we thought it fitting to make a Spotify playlist based on the HBO hit show. We’ve got it all: music from Queen, Grateful Dead, Green Day, Kesha, and even Ed Sheeran. That’s right, haters, Ed Sheeran is now canon in the both the show AND our playlist.

It’s A Secret Agent Musicapalooza!

Watch out, it’s a spotify playlist about spies and kick ass secret agents!

Atomic Blonde is out in theaters this weekend so we thought we’d celebrate the release with an action-packed, secret agent Spotify playlist featuring songs from Chris Cornell, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Florence + The Machine, Johnny Rivers, Kanye West, and more. It’s a pulse-pounding, eclectic playlist that will hopefully get you pumped for a life of espionage!

A Hype To Remember: Hanna (2011)

A Dark, Violent and delightful surprise, with a kickin’ score!

I hadn’t been in Los Angeles all that long, really. Wasn’t acclimated to the temperature, and still thought sixty degrees was “warm.” In-n-Out was a novelty for me, and so were all the movie theater options available (you mean I can go to the theater Tarantino owns whenever I want??).

 

Joe Wright as a director was on my radar, but I had only seen his Pride and Prejudice, which I thought “was fine.” Both Atonement and The Soloist were a skip for me based on the marketing, which made the trailer for Hanna a bit of a surprise when I saw it.

Across the Universe, It’s Musicapalooza!

We’re exploring the final frontier with this week’s Musicapalooza Spotify Playlist!

To celebrate the release of Valerian this weekend, we’re blasting off into the great unknown that is SPACE. Well, that’s not entirely accurate. We’ve got a Spotify playlist, which is pretty much the same thing, yeah? Oh! We’ve also got this video of Tim Curry:

 

 

So put on those space-age headphones, find a nice corner of your spaceship, and check out the coolest music playlist this side of the galaxy!

Time To Monkey Around, It’s Musicapalooza!

We’re monkeying around for this week’s Musicapalooza, and It’s partially Caesar’s fault.

War For The Planet of the Apes is out this weekend and we thought it would be a fun thing to have a playlist that’s all about “monkeying around.” Some tracks have monkeys in them and some tracks are completely random, but all of the songs featured this week are super fun to listen to!

 

So don’t delay! Give our new playlist a listen and let us know what you think!

A Hype To Remember: Hannibal (TV)

It was a gory, three-course meal with complicated start and a ravishing finish.

My favorite television show of all time is Hannibal, the surprising NBC adaptation of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon. The show focused on FBI Special Investigator Will Graham and his relationship to Psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a relationship that the internet would lovingly dub “murder husbands.”

 

SEE??! MURDER HUSBANDS ARE REAL AND IMPORTANT!

 

As someone who enjoyed Jonathan Demme’s Silence of the Lambs, found an amusing appreciation for Ridley Scott’s Hannibal, and found himself bored by Brett Ratner’s Red Dragon, I was interested to see how NBC (of all channels) was going to take a stab at the polite cannibal.
