Quiz: Guess the movie

Do you love the cinema? Do you love typography? A Friday time-waster for you: guess the movie based on a letter from its poster. (And I think from now on I shall use words like "film" and "cinema" when chatting about movies I've seen. It will make me sound much smarter. For example, "After viewing the film Zoolander at the cinema, I purchased it for our motion picture collection." Sounds smart, right? Except for the Zoolander part.)

If by 'smart' you mean 'British', then yes, of course.

Jess said...

Ooo, good idea. I will add a British accent and then sound SUPER smart.

It's a cute idea, but the implementation is very poor. I put in correct answers for several options, and they were marked as incorrect, despite spelling, punctuation, and capitalization being identical to the names on the posters. Boo. :(

I could only get 12. I passed it on to my movie buff friend to see if he could do any better
Thanks for a bit of Friday fun!

Did you come up with the name of your blog from a musical group called solar fields?

I cannot even muster the energy to click on that link. but I will start using the word cinema more often if you think it will help. I may even start saying 'shedule' instead of 'skedule'.

Did you ever stop to think that there is more to life than being really really ridiculously
good looking?

Orange mocha frappucino!

Jess said...

Larissa: Excellent plan.
Christine: Yeah! Like opening a school for kids who can't read good!
Wehaf: That's random. And I'm sorry to say the idea of mixing fruit and chocolate and coffee all together sounds a little bit revolting to me, but the basic premise is good. I'm going to walk down the street and get a Frappucino right now. Not kidding. I have a coupon. Bye.

Hi Jess, I can't tell if you are pulling my leg or not, but "orange mocha frappucino" is from Zoolander. :)

Jess said...

It IS?!?!?!??! Wow, I can't remember that part! I'll have to watch it again. Sorry I missed the reference. I thought your comment was funny just for its wacky randomness. (I did go have a Frappucino, though. :)

And hey, Anonymous, never heard of Solar Fields. But if they like orange, maybe I'll like them.

Ugh. I only got 7. And I teach film. UGH!

Yes but Zoolander is way funny and shows that while being smart you also have a funny side.

rachel said...

Yes, definitely British. Unless you were a very old Brit, in which case you might say "picture house"....
