cinema exam

This is an idea stolen from a LiveJournal post made by a friend of mine. Here are the rules for this meme as stated in her post:

  1. Pick 20 films you love/thoroughly enjoyed.
  2. Find screen captures (stills) for each film. If you can’t find a still, pick a new movie.
  3. Post the pictures with the rules; let your readers guess from what movie each still is.

I will turn off comment moderation after a couple of days and approve any guesses that accumulate. Please place all guesses on my blog directly. Some of you read my site via a LiveJournal RSS feed – don’t put comments on that, or I will never see them.

I did my captures from my own DVD collection trying my best to pick a scene from each movie that will be nearly obvious to a true fan, but gibberish to anyone else. If you find this quiz to be really easy, then you are either Rain Man or your movie tastes run similar to mine.

On with the show!
