Screenshot Game: Week #3

As you all know I’ve been unable to continue the #screenshotgame that became somewhat popular on the gmanreviews facebook page. However, I feel like giving this once a week blog post game a chance. So every Sunday I will post a screenshot and you will post a comment guessing the screenshot.

Some new rules: You get 1 guess per comment and you can’t comment successively (i.e. you can’t comment/guess again until someone else has). This is to cut down on people flooding comments with guesses for more difficult entries.

The Current Leaderboard So far is:

Paul Harrell – 2

And here’s this week’s entry. Guess away:

What film is this screenshot from?

The #ScreenshotGame Week #2 Results

Can I call it a success? It’s early but so far no-one, myself included, has gotten bored yet. If you’re unsure of what this “Screenshot Game” is, then read further

So if you noticed I decided to start a daily competition on this blog’s official Facebook page (which you can find here:http://facebook.com/gmanreviews).The Rules: Everyday I will post a screenshot from a film, some will be easy and some will be hard. The first person to guess what movie the screenshot has come from will get a point.

The Prize: At the end of every week whoever has the most correct guesses will have the privilege of recommending a movie for me to watch and I will review it with a video review that will be posted on the weekend where I will also plug the person and their website and assorted links.

This is the second week of the competition. Last week Paul Harrell won and decided to make me watch The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover which I reviewed here. I love the idea of having you all recommending me films that I’ve never seen before, and hopefully soon I’ll figure out how to do the video blog thing (or maybe I shouldn’t?).

Anyways this week Nick Newman, follow him on twitter and check out his writings over at The Film Stage, won after winning the 8th day tie break. He’s selected the film Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence which I’ll be checking out over the weekend and hope to have the review up before the end of Week #3 of the #ScreenshotGame. Go and like gmanreviews on Facebook and you can play too and get me to fill in those cinematic gaps that aggravate you the most.

Anyways here’re the snapshots that were up for guessing this week along with the answers.

Day #1 – Network

Day #2 – Gladiator

Day #3 – Independence Day

Day #4 – Four Lions

Day #5 – Nausicaa of The Valley of the Wind

Day #6 – Spy Game

Day #7 – Cars

Day #8 (tie-break) – Back to the Future

So make sure you “LIKE” gmanreviews on facebook and play along. Maybe you can make me watch some insane film to frustrate me or some classic to educate me. Whatever suits your personality.
