Name That Shot!

I've seen this done before on other film blogs (particularly Filmbrain's Like Anna Karina's Sweater, Emma's All About My Movies and Filmsquish every Monday) but I've never actually done one myself. So, I figured it was about time. You probably know how this works already, but I'll go ahead and explain anyway. Below are images from 25 different films. Some of them are absurdly simple to guess while other will no doubt prove a bit more difficult. Send me your answers (damianarlyn@hotmail.com) and the person who gets the most correct will, as Emma says, "get a mention here on my blog." Good luck. Have fun.

Damn on a couple of things.

Stupid, stupid, stupid that I picked Schindler's List when it so obviously Citizen Kane. And it's Signs, not Signals. And Brazil was so damn obvious, I don't know where my head was.

Damian said...

Piper:

First of all, don't feel bad about #13. Citizen Kane and Schindler's List are virtually the same film in my eyes. ;)

Secondly, I still gave yo the point on #23. YOu might've said Signals, but I knew what you meant.

Comparing my email answers to those below, I think I got 13 (assuming Damian is kind enough to award me a point for "M" which I accidentally typed beside 17 instead of 18 - you are kind enough right Damian?).

I blew Mockingbird and Brazil and had nothing for the others.

Isn't it time for another round yet?! B-)

Squish said...

Uh weren't we supposed to email you our answers?

That is correct. That's why I'm going to go ahead and close this round now and post the answers.
