    Welcome to the latest round of "Name the Movie".

    Name the Movie is a friendly forum game where we will be posting images from films and asking for you to identify them.
    Those who identify them correctly will then have twelve hours to post a film of their own choosing.

    For this round, the film you post needs to be "set in the past". The film has to be set before 1945/WWII, if it is a film from before 1945 it must be set in the past relative to it's release. If the film is only partially set in the past, but the majority is in the present/future thats a no go (ex. The Fountain). If it is only partially set in the present/future but the majority is set in the past then that's all good (ex. Back to The Future III).


    Round details:

    Round start : May 1st
    Round end: June 1st
    Judge: Luigi F Mario

    The other normal rules are still in effect. pingy has summarized them beautifully:

    If you successfully name the movie, please post your own image, and then send the answer to your entry to the 'Temper who posted the image you correctly identified. This previous poster will not be allowed to guess your image and will help us to know when a movie has been correctly identified.
    We ask that you do not 'hotlink' to images hosted by other websites. Rather you should rename the image, and reload it to your own personal image host, such as Photobucket or Imageshack.
    We also like it when people keep the scores and 'movies shown this round' list updated,
    but there's no penalty for forgetting this step.

    A comprehensive listing of the rules can be found in this thread.

    Any issues or complaints should be brought up in the discussion thread or sent directly to the judge.

    One person posts a screenshot of a film, relevant to the theme of the round, making sure it isn't impossible to guess (ie include either a lead character or make it a renowned/significant scene)....or too easy. When a successful guess has been made and confirmed to be correct by the poster of the image, the person who guessed successfully posts the next screenshot and sends a PM to the forum member whose image they guessed correctly. This allows them to judge the guesses for that particular image in your absence. When confirming a film the score table must be updated with the new scores. So, if you're going to make a guess and following that post a snapshot please ensure that you check back every so often to see if someone named your movie correctly or to check if your guess was correct so that the game isn't held up too long. Try not to repeat movies, especially the same scene...

    "Hit and Run" revision:

    If someone posts a correct guess and doesn't come back to post a new picture within 12 hours then it becomes a do-over. The turn reverts back to the previous player who posted a pic, that player posts a new pic and PMs the previous player again. The first time someone does it they just get a warning, the next time they do it the points get removed to stop habit forming.


    Lets get started already!

    Sorry, didn't mean to seem flakey. My ISP has been down for the past 24hrs. Needless to say I'm not off to a very good start with you guys.

    You should update the scores when someone gets the film right, and also include the IMDB link for it in the spoiler box for movies posted.

    Also can you guys read the rules of the game in the OP. Technically even though Luigi posted the film you got right, it should have been you and trueislander who were supposed to confirm the next players guess. So I dont know if trueislander should get a point. That will be up to Luigi to decide.

    Cool, I wont argue with your decision Luigi. I think if you have to do this again though, you should PM the person who didnt post a pic with the answer, and ask them not to take a guess. That will avoid people getting an extra go when they shouldnt.
