    Default Game #413 - It is Into the Wild

    Game version 1
    One picture from one movie:

    Rule 1:
    NO IMAGE HOSTING ON EXTERNAL SERVERS.
    Images for the games need to be ATTACHED to the post, and thus uploaded to our server.

    Rule 2:
    TWO GUESSES PER PERSON PER POSTED PICTURE!!! Those two guesses are not allowed to be in the same post, NOR in a consecutive post. I.e. you can post one guess, then have to wait for someone else to guess: your second guess is not allowed to be immediately following your first guess.

    Rule 3:
    The WINNER of the game can start a new game IN A NEW THREAD.
    NO ONE ELSE (unless yielded so by the winner).

    Rule 4:
    Once there's a winner, PLEASE post the correct name into the thread (spelled correctly, and capitalized correctly, and not in italics or bold face.)

    Rule 5:
    The correct title format is: "Game" / space / "#" / number.
    Example: " Game #12" (without the ")
    (no space between the # sign and the number!)

    Rule 6:
    The film selected should be one that has had an international, theatrical release.
    I.e. a made-for-TV movie only shown in the USA would hardly be a fair entry, as
    we have international players also.

    Rule 7:
    These complete rules (1 to 7) have to be copy & pasted into each new game's first post.

    Let's see how long this one lasts:

    Mal, that can't be it. The tower has the US Bank logo which was put up around 2003 or somewhere around there. It was used to have "I" logo's up there for the First Interstate Bank during the 90s.

    Good eye, Al. So now we know the movie was made after 2003. That's a free hint for you.

    Hey! One of my games actually lasted more than two shots. It's been a while since that happened

    Hint: Certified Fresh

    I'd remember just from that shot. That's my favorite building. Beautiful architecture! The L.A. Skyline is incredible

    A little too nondescript captures for me - I don't think I've seen this movie...

    Screen grabs from this film seem to be either nondescript, or too descript. Maybe this one is somewhere in the middle. If not, I'll make them even easier as I go along today.

    Hint: The Oscar-winning director and the lead actor were both born in the same US state, just a few miles (but a quarter of a decade) apart. (Clarification: the Oscar wins were for other films, not this one)

    I gave up after looking at 10 Oscar award winning directors and comparing their birth dates/ birthplaces with the stars of their movies made after 2003.

    I realized that they could've won an Oscar for something else. Some of em are actors.

    I think you got that the other way around. None of our games last more than two shots when you're playing. Hahaha.

    Last shot of the day.

    Hint: In addition to this movie, the book also inspired a documentary, and a reality TV show.

    I don't think that fits this:

    It is Into the Wild.

    And, you're right Al, it doesn't fit the clue -- BECAUSE I SCREWED UP THE CLUE. I meant to say a "quarter of a century." I didn't catch it until just now. I suspect I sent Al (and others) on a wild goose chase with that one. Sorry, sorry sorry.

    At any rate, here are the giveaway shots:

    snap-00002.jpgsnap-00004.jpgsnap-00012.jpgsnap-00013.jpgsnap-00023.jpg

    Al, would you have gotten this right if I hadn't messed up the hint?

    No wild geese for me ... since subconsciously, I automatically thought "century" - I've never heard of anyone speaking of a "quarter of a decade" - until now, that is!

    New game coming up, soon.
