Guess That Movie By Screenshot, Episode VI: The Return of the (Movie) Jedi


l - r: The Stunt Man (1980), Fahrenheit 451 (1966), The Holy Mountain (1973), What a Way to Go! (1964), Casshern (2004)

RULES
Current rules are as follows, from the old thread (subject to change):
1) Only ONE person posts a screenshot at a time. Multiple screenshots and clues are possible to make it easier.

2) Only the person who had guessed the movie correctly is allowed to post a new picture. If that person is not able to post a new picture => wildcard.

2a) In lieu of "wildcard," you can also declare "Kudama Time," which is basically the same thing, only difference is that it feeds the ego of a certain DVDTalk member.

3) If that person doesn't post a new picture within 6 hours => wildcard.

3a) If there are no new screenshots or clues from the original poster within 24 hours => wildcard.

4) You can upload your pictures for free at:

http://www.imageshack.us/
http://www.photobucket.com/
http://www.imagehosting.com/
http://www.imagebanana.com/
http://www.pix8.net/

5) Each user has two guesses and one question per post.

FOR PEOPLE NEW TO THE GAME
* You can get a sense of the format for this game by browsing the old threads:

Part I
Part II
Part III
Part IV
Part V

* To take a screenshot, the two most common methods are to play the film on your DVD-ROM drive and use software such as PowerDVD to take a shot (it's the small camera icon in the control panel). Alternatively, you can download the free (and excellent) VLC Player which takes screenshots.

Please note that if you use PowerDVD to take shots, they will come out as BMP files; before posting, please convert them into JPG or GIF files, as BMP files are roughly 1MB whereas JPG files are only 50KB on average. Likewise, VLC Player converts screenshots into PNG files, which can often be 600KB on average. There is plenty of free software that will convert your images for you; three of them are:

Irfanview
Fast Stone
Microsoft Paint


l - r: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), My Favorite Year (1982), Dirty Love (2005), Get Carter (1971), Alice, Sweet Alice (1976)

Miscellaneous Statistics for Part V

In a neck and neck race, Kudama keeps his title of Wildcard champion, fending off a hard-charging SterlingBen.

In Part V, Kudama dubbed Luther Heggs a "movie Jedi". Based on these results, Mondo Kane is at least as deserving of the title.

OMFG! I knew my stats were weak, but WOW!!!

I love Mondo and agree completely. I posted one (The Children) knowing Mondo would pounce on it Matrix slo mo style.

Awesome, awesome graph!

Ditto to all!

I'm clueless on the first one. I know my first guess has to be wrong so I'm holding out a bit. I want to do better this round, but I'm still addicted to wildcards.

edit- Holy Mackerel! Three of mine were used. I didn't notice Fahrenheit 451.

You are awesome obscurelabel for posting that awesome in-depth tally of the screen-shot game part V.


My guess for the posted screenshot is: Leslie Vernon (Behind the Mask)?

Behind the Mask is right. I was hoping to get to post this shot before someone guessed it. The one line in the movie that elevated it to "classic" status.



"Found it."

No idea, but before you head out of town maybe post the usual IMDB data so we can confirm our guess?
