It’s a slow week for pretty much everyone, as we recover from the heavy drinking of Christmas and New Year’s. So even if you don’t have the day off, pretend you’re one of those guys by wasting some time with the “spot the hidden movie title” graphic posted by The Daily Mail.
Lots of watchers had fun naming video game titles in the Arcade Aid game as part of the viral marketing for Tron: Legacy, (Walt Disney Pictures started out an online campaign for Tron: Legacy that led fans to discover FlynnLives.com, HomeofTron.com, and Flynn’s Arcade in San Diego where fans got to see the Light Cycle up close. ) but let’s face it, video games are not exactly our all that and a bag of cookies (though we do enjoy playing them from time-to-time). So why not have a shot at naming a whole slide of movies with nothing but single image hinting at a total of 50 films?
It’s like the picture hunts you did as a child, trying to figure out the hidden double meaning of the frog in the topcoat, except all the weird little drawings represent familiar movie titles. Without spoiling anything I’ve marked at least two De Niro-Scorsese collaborations, what seems to be a Pixar movie, and one Oscar winner from the last 15 years or so. Yeah, I’m not very good at these, but maybe you’ll be. If you lose hope and need answers you can also click over to the Daily Mail site for a list. but come on! No fair cheating just yet.
Here’s the Blockbuster Quiz image for you to look steadily with eyes wide open for hours. Solve the visual clues and find the fifty films. (click image for larger version)
