Name That Movie!

by Randall Cleveland

So you fancy yourself a movie buff. You can recite memorable lines, you know the credits to your favorite flicks better than an IMDB listing, and you even spend more time than you'd like to admit recreating famous movie scenes using various action figures around your house. You still might not have what it takes to win at Famous Objects from Classic Movies.

"Curses! What could it BE?!"



You're given a silhouette of an object from a movie. The objects are generally iconic, seminal pieces of the film's lore, but some are either to decipher than others (The Statue of Liberty? What movie HASN'T that thing been in? She gets around.). From there it's a Hangman-style game of filling in the movie's title one letter at a time. Guess wrong three times and you lose. The game progresses through 10 levels and tracks your score so you can brag to all your friends. About how much time you spend watching movies. Instead of doing stuff. Whatever. It's better than doing actual work, isn't it?

Some are easier than others.
