Answers to the Guess the Movie Title Game

Can You Guess the Movie?

I probably could have waited to post the following graphic on Monday and had more takers, but I never intended to post it in the first place as it merely came out of the result of me working on a new feature for the site. That said, many of you still got in the game and I had a lot of fun on Twitter last night with people guessing some of the more difficult titles.

As it turns out, it was numbers 13, 19, 22 and 23 that gave people the most trouble, 13 proving to be the hardest of the lot as only André Marques got that right in the comments (as of 9 AM PST this morning) and one person on Twitter last night finally guessed it after several hints and attempts. I applaud all of you for your efforts!

I was astonished how many people got #33 correct and quite honestly, surprised any of you got #22.

That said, today I reveal the answers, which I have placed below the graphic. So if you still want to play without looking at the answers, either click here for the previous, answerless article, or click the graphic below for a larger look.

  • Ryguy815

    I got 17 correct.

  • Ron Oneal Fresh

    Glad I got Seven Samurai, I almost guessed Yojimbo.

  • ashdurdin

    I was surprised about 33 too. I thought I was going too look smart for knowing it but several people had already guessed it.

  • Hello Kitty

    So wrong about #23. I'm pleasantly surprised at all the correct answers. Brad, who got the most right? Perhaps a CD or poster for top winners.

  • Django

    This game was excellent. Hope to see more of these at some point.

  • Alex Lehr O’Connell

    agree with the other commenters- a good game, and great way to waste time during the weekend blogging lull. would love to see more of this, thanks!

  • Mikey

    Brad could that new feature be your version of Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" list you keep hinting at? A lot of these were mentioned as your favorites on the podcast...

  • Joseph Bridges

    Wow. The Big Red One is a pretty obscure Fuller film that not many have seen. I found it at Big Lots a few years back for $3 and bought it on Fuller's name alone.

  • Liam Fogarty

    33/36 - I'm actually quite pleased with myself.
