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!

Face your past. Choose this week’s podcast where we talk about T2 TRAINSPOTTING, Danny Boyle’s follow-up to the 90s drug-filled cinematic punch to the gut. We’re joined by Elliot Campos, who gives us a hilarious breakdown of the plot and nearly breaks the podcast in the process. We talk about getting older and wrestle with the message of the movie. It’s an interesting discussion and you won’t want to miss a minute of it!

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.
