View Full Version : The Movie Game

The A-Z game has reminded me of one of my favourite dinner party games. The idea is to give three clues to a movie ... the more obscure the better! New clues are added if no one is able to guess. The person who guesses the movie then starts the next round with a new choice.

For example:

candy
Grandpa
gold

Answer - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory

Okay, I'll start ....

guitar
orange juice
chair

Edit: Okay, it came up - ya spoil sport! :p

Never would have gotten it if I hadn't googled it, and I've seen the movie.

The idea is to make it hard.

Can anyone guess without googling?

No, I'm rubbish at movies, but I'm limited by age-restrictions that, unlike many, I take notice of.

Might be time for a new clue or two? 34 views and no answers, I think you've successfully stumped the forum ;)

It's a great movie, isn't it? It really got me thinking. Until I had more pressing matters such as the fact that the car broke down and the friend I had gone with started felling and being sick. Urgh! In the dark too! That was horrible.

OK, I've probably killed this.

It was Brighton Rock based on Graham Greene's novel. A remake recently. Perhaps it didn't make it out of the UK but I thought it had.

Anyone else want to take a turn? I can't think of a common movie...

hectorloch
09-13-11, 11:27 AM
Let's see if it's picked up again by someone else. Be a shame to drop, but that's what happens. It was started by a one time very prominent player TheFluffySlipper, alas apparently no longer posting and another player on here was Ahshan who I haven't heard of since the First Derby !

There's tons of top 100 Movies sites. How they make them up, I don't know. After my Brighton Rock bomb, I chose Number One from one of them - it was Shawshank :)

Erin Brockovich ?

Also, Jenny, might your answer not also have been "Driving Miss Daisy" ? Wrong period maybe. Curiously, an old one came on last night which I watched the opening 15 mins of - Missippi Buring with Gene Hackman. Frightful times !
