The Movie Picture Code #1

Do you possess the skill, the insight, the perceptive capabilities to crack the movie picture code? Below you'll find the names of three films, though don't be surprised if they are not in the form you would imagine. Nope, they are masked by a sequence of pictures whose representations may define, imply, or merely phonetically resemble the title they are meant to create. Your job is to crack the code. To uncover the name, and boast about your superior astute capabilities.

Need and example? No worries, here's an easy prepackaged one for you to digest.


Dollar Bill + Clint Howard + On Switch = Bill Clinton. Easy enough, right? OK, so it's not really movie related, but you get the idea (besides, if I used up the movie ones on examples then I'd run out!).

Let's Begin!





So how many did you get? Leave your answers in the comments section!

I love these kinds of games.

Sadly...I can't come up with a single one.

Here's what I have. ;)

1. Squirrel Beer Comb Bat
2. Fans Harry Met Road
3. uhh....yeah.

One thing that might help: if when I clicked on the image strips, it took me to a larger version of them. Some of these things are a might hard to see.

Still - love it.

Jason Soto said...

1. Mortal Combat
2. When Harry Met Sally
3. No idea.

Univarn said...

@Dylan I had thought of that just when I finished doing the third one - so I will starting next week! Maybe looking at Jason's answer will help you get a feel for the game.

@Jason Way to go on #1 and #2!

Number 3 and the Out of the Box challenge still up for grabs!

Jason Soto said...

Is the challenge "Home Alone"?

Dylan said...

As you see, I got the "Combat" and the "Harry Met," but I couldn't reconcile the rest of the images to equal those movies. I guess I can see some of it now, but I still can't figure out how squirrel beer = mortal.

Good thinking on the challenge one, Jason.

Univarn said...

@Jason Nope, keep trying.

@Dylan The 'Squirrel' is a Lemur named Mort from Madagascar and the pitcher of Beer is Ale so Mort + Ale = Mortal :). In each one I tried to blend some gimmies with some more out there ones. The 3rd one is a bit more on the out there side. The Outside the Box one isn't so much complicated as it is a spin on the obvious.

Dylan said...

Ah...I would have never gotten Mort in a million years.

Challenge: The Last House on the Left?

Sebastian Gutierrez said...

3rd: Terms of Endearment?

Dylan said...

@ Sebastian - that's all I could come up with based on the "N dear," but the rest of it made no sense to me. :\

Univarn said...

@Dylan I kind of wish it was, but sorry - it's not that :\

@Sebastian Nope, good try though.

Univarn said...

Alright, I'll toss out a couple of hints since nobody has guessed the final 2 yet.

For #3: The 3rd, 4th, and 5th images make up 1 word.

For #4: You need to go beyond the English language.

Jason Soto said...

Challenge: Casablanca!

Jason Soto said...

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World!

Univarn said...

And there's Jason for the clean sweep!

Simon said...

2) When Harry Met Sally?

You clever son of a bitch.

Red said...

This is an awesome idea. Wish I had seen this earlier.

Still don't get Master and Commander.

Univarn said...

@Simon Clever is as clever does. I don't know what that means but I figured since clever had been used and not cleaver, I might as well just go with the flow.

@Red Feel free to take part next week! Though I may scale it back some since this was more of a coming out party for it. Anywho, allow me to explain:

1st photo = Mast of a ship.
2nd photo = Errand
Mast + Errand = Master And

3nd photo = Comma
4th photo = N
5th photo = Deer
Comma + N + Deer = Commander

6th photo = Far Side comic strip
7th photo = the World

Put it all together and you get: Master and Commander: Far Side of the World (sorry I couldn't think of anything for 'of' or 'the').
