Movie Screenshot Game Round XXI: Tsunami Hotpot

Now you know that I will never stop the —-ing winning!

The rules:

  • I’m going to post a screenshot from a movie. If you’re the first person to guess the movie, you win!
  • If you win, you have to continue the game by posting a screenshot on your blog with the same rules outlined here (please link here as well). The winner of your round will host the next round, and so on.
  • If you don’t have a blog (and if you don’t want to start one), I’ll host the next round as well (the screenshot should still come from the winner, if possible). If you do have a blog, but the winner of your round doesn’t, you should host the next round too.
  • Once the winner posts their screenshot, Mark will link to it from this post. Each winner needs to link to the next winner, and so on.
  • Only movies are eligible. No television shows.
  • If no one can figure out the answer within 3 days, then you’ve stumped the internet. If you want, you can give hints. If we still have no winner, then congratulations, you’ve won. Maybe I’ll start a hall of fame or something. Give everyone the answer, and post another screenshot (or pass the baton to someone else, and link them). If you decide to host the next round, be nice, and post an easier screenshot. This game would be no fun if you keep posting random landscapes from obscure Italian films.
  • My original choice from this movie would have scarred everyone for life, so I present to you something more palatable:

    Update: Mark wins with I (heart) Huckabees! His hubristic new round is online!

    Movie Screenshot Game Round IX: The Thud of Disappointment

    With the winner of the last round of the game MIA, I had to take it upon myself to provide you with this screenshot.

    Unfortunately my laptop has been forced into retirement and this G4 is so slow I got to fully understand how great the sound design on this particular movie was. Knock yourselves out, folks.

    Update: Dyre wins, with Blade Runner as the solution! Next round online!

    Movie Screenshot Game Round VIII: Attack Ships on Fire

    The movie screenshot game continues! The last round was won by my cousin Jonathan, and I’m being kind enough to host it. Rules in Mark’s post as usual.

    I’d like to say that I also knew which movie was featured in Justin’s round, and chose not to say it because of my previous shame with this game. I find it quite amusing the tiptoeing around the knowledge of the answers. Let’s see how this one goes, shall we?

    Update: Instant win for Beth, who correctly ascertained that the movie in question was Cry-Baby! Stay tuned for the next round!

    Movie Screenshot Game Round IV: The Scourge of the Seas

    The rules, shrunk down:

  • I’m going to post a screenshot from a movie. If you’re the first person to guess the movie, you win!
  • If you win, you have to continue the game by posting a screenshot on your blog with the same rules outlined here (please link here as well). The winner of your round will host the next round, and so on.
  • If you don’t have a blog (and if you don’t want to start one), I’ll host the next round as well (the screenshot should still come from the winner, if possible). If you do have a blog, but the winner of your round doesn’t, you should host the next round too.

  • With the success of the last round at last come to rest, Spencer offers us this tasty morsel! I know the answer as she told me – but otherwise I would have no clue!

    Movie Screenshot Game Round III: The Hunger for Combat

    As per the rules, I’ve put in a new screenshot for the Movie Screenshot Game. No one knew the last one, it seems.

    This one is much more of a gimme. Now come out of the woodwork, errant readers!

    Update: Success! Reader Spencer successfully suggested that the movie in question was Love Actually! She doesn’t have her own blog, so hopefully I will get an email from her soon to put up the next image.

    Behold! Round 4

    Dare to guess, friends. Dare to dream.

    Update: No one guessed. No one dreamed. The answer was Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which has even been covered on this site before. Here’s Round IIa: a sign of my abject failure.
