Come guess this movie in the 2017 20:20 game!


#1625

I did my due diligence:

But now that I actually trawl through the last topic, I see it’s there. The search result was confusing, and the “list of all frame game” topics didn’t come up, so I assumed it was kosher. I’ll have a new one up in a moment (really, though, I should clearly stop participating in these, since I had the same problem last time).


#1626

Better to use the google doc curated by charmtrap. It’s a lot easier to search.


#1627

One fresh frame, never before seen, double and triple checked. The 20:20.


#1628

Inside Llewyn Davis


#1629

Correct! I didn’t expect it to take long.

40:40

60:60

80:80

@Djscman is up!


#1630

All right! The Coen’s interest in digital color timing, which they started with O Brother, really went to an incredible degree here. It always looks like the sky is going to open up and dump ten feet of snow…even inside! Or young Llewyn is suffering from glaucoma.

Anyway, here is the next 20:20:


#1631

Captain Blood?


#1632

Mutiny on the Bounty?


#1633

Yes, it is Captain Blood! Not a bad adaptation of the book, except a plot hole here or there they didn’t have the time to explain.

The 40:40

The 60:60, or “Gooh, confound you meddling kids!”

The 80:80 or “How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, in squalor grow up to be a hero and a scholar?” Actually, that was another guy, not Captain Blood, who was a gentleman, a doctor, and a scholar but stuck in the Caribbean by providence.

The 100:100


#1634

Alright! For once I had frames all set to go, so without delay the new 20:20


#1635

Kagemusha. One of the great Kurosawa films.


#1636

I knew it was potentially incredibly easy. It is pretty identifiably Kurosawa.

40:40


60:60

80:80

100:100

120:120

140:140

Probably why no one had ever done it before, because someone like @Jason_Levine would nail it within the hour ;)

Take it away


#1637

With classics like this and Captain Blood, I have a shot. With the indie horror movies that are so beloved around here, not so much. I’ll have something, guaranteed not to be an indie horror movie, but not guaranteed not to be another grampa movie, this evening.


#1638

Heh, I know that feeling. But the crew here watches so many more movies than I do, so I kind of get forced into a few narrow genres to find ones not done.

But I can imagine worse fates than being the martial arts and Japanese film guy ;)


#1639

OK, in what movie will you see this frame at the 20:20 mark?


#1640

The Final Countdown, which ive already done. It’s not on the list though.


#1641

Well, that made it a bit hard to search. I’ll find something else this evening.


#1642

I can do one and we can just move on.


#1643

No need. Here’s one I’m pretty sure hasn’t been done yet:

20:20


#1644

Match Point?
