Well, no, because in this thread the shots are (supposedly) worthy of framing, or are truly "favorite shots" whereas in the other thread, I'd think you'd try for something obscure that could be from a popular flick but could be hard to recall, and not necessarily a favorite shot.

Like I said though, I still enjoy seeing it and thinking "Oh what the hell is that from," and if I can't guess, you can right click the pic, or perhaps as I asked a spoiler for it....for example, do you honestly need a title on this:



Spoiler:
Spider-Man
Perhaps you might want one for which of the three it's from, but still...

Why assume that everybody is going to? Seriously, it takes two seconds to type the title.

It was a joke.
Yours is kind of an extreme example don't you think? (awesome shot btw) I just find it funny that as many times as people have asked that the title of the movie be included in the post, people still refuse to do it.

Yes, but now I've already taken two seconds to name the file, now you expect me to take an ADDITIONAL two seconds to do this!??! I can't waste my life away ya know!

I sorta figured yours was a joke, hence the rather obvious picture post, which I was going to paste anyway.

Fine....FINE! YOU WIN! HAPPY DAMN IT!?!? HERE's a damn caca-doody picture!!!11!!oneoneonewon


POEUPBT PWRAEUBG is the name of your flick.

I wonder if this one is okay, both here and on ImageShack. I realize we're not to have nudity in either....so I got as close as I could without showing aerola, let alone nipple. Oh yes...ROED/TREUP

2010: The Year We Make Contact


Excalibur


Highlander


Predator 2


Return of the Jedi


Star Trek III: The Search for Spock


Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (I'm such a sucker for the Enterprise)

Ok can't really post it but the scene from A Life Less Ordinary where cameron Diaz walks by the pool and its silky flat water in foreground and her behind it walking so it looks like shes almost walking on the water.

Not really a criticism but more of an observation: why do only a few people in this thread know that movies existed before the mid-80's?

Movies before 1980's? HAH! Surely you jest! I think the first popular film was Stir Crazy with Willy Wonka and that comedian who set himself on fire. That movie rocked!

Seriously though, it's obviously an age thing....at least that would be my guess. I was born in 1972, so my first time getting my interest piqued in the 80's, followed again by about a decade later.

So for me personally, for the moment, I'm just posting shots that I am recalling off the top of my head. At some point I'll start posting shots from movies I'm watching (and I'm obtaining that Sergio Leone boxed set soon enough, so you KNOW there'll be some shots from there.

I'll take a guess on this.

Age of the average DVD Talker: 25 to 35. (A coveted ad demographic, good going, Mr. Kleinman!)

Age at which most people start watching a lot of movies and remembering what they are: 5 to 7 years old.

That gives us:

Year when most DVD Talkers started movies: 1977 to 1989.

Since most movies on TV at that point would've been no more than 10 years old, and 99% of movies seen in theatres since then where from the year of release, it means most movies most readers have seen are from the 80's onward.

Just to put my comment into some context, I was born in '81, so I was raised on late-80's/early-90's movies, but even back then I was open to films from any era, as long as they kept me entertained. I figured that due to the constant stream of older flicks, both classic and obscure, that are being released week after week on DVD, and especially with services like Netflix, this thread might see a bit more variety, era-wise.

(And before I get hit with any "Well, why don't you post some shots of your own then, smart guy?" comments, I'd like to state my DVD-ROM drive is currently on the fritz after several years of use. Time to install a new one.)

Here's a few screen shots to silence the "what's with the after 80's" crowd:


Oh crap, that's KAOUB from 1997
Spoiler:
Cube


Damn it...that's KEUL PWEUL SROL/KWRAOUM 2 from 2004
Spoiler:
Kill Bill Vol 2


How did THAT get there?!? Just thought that was a damn funny moment of dialogue. From Spiderman 2 (2004)...how about a real nice shot (with some obvious trickery as well though) from that same flick:




Alright...NOW I got it:

It's "Du bi quan wang da po xue di zi" (that's NOT steno code!) aka Master of the Flying Guillotine (1975)!
