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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

      I bet this is too hard.

      The title of the movie is ironic for this game.

    2. Wavatar Mark says:

      I’m 90% sure I know this, so if no one gets it in the next day or so, I’ll give it a guess myself:P

      FYI, I was only able to figure it out because I recognized the actor and because IMDB is awesome. And your “ironic” hint kinda helped too. But I haven’t seen the movie and probably never would have gotten it otherwise:P

    3. Wavatar Spencer says:

      I figured people would recognize the actor from his talk show, and that they would have already looked up his past work and would therefore have seen this movie.

      But then, even I didn’t watch his show (I can’t stay awake long enough). And this movie didn’t get much publicity when it came out, so I bet it’s just skipped over now.

      Hint 2: He uses scissors in his profession, but there is another important tool he uses to perform the act that is the title of the movie.

    4. Wavatar Mark says:

      Ok, It’s been a little while, so I’ll take a guess: The Big Tease…

    5. Wavatar Alex says:

      Indeed: The Big Tease it is.
