    That's right! You guessed it! It's another round of the fabulous time wasting game we like to call Name The Movie! This is a fun forum game that anyone can participate in. All you need is a love of movies, a keyboard, and a sense of humor!

    The rules are pretty simple, and are as follows (as originally written by the legend, greyhound)

    One person posts a screenshot of a film, any film (keep it clean), 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. 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. It's usual for 2-3 images to get posted per day. Try not to repeat movies, especially the same scene...

    Some were added as the game evolved, which were :
    • In order to keep the game flowing, it helps if two people have the confirmed correct answer. Remember to send the answer to the previous poster when posting a picture for your turn. The answer should be PM'ed to the last person to post a film, not necessarily the person who updated the scores.
    • Remember to keep the scores updated.
    • Remember to update the previous movies posted list.
    • Posting an answer and then saying "Skip me" will result in no points, and a toss-up movie either by the judge, or by the previous poster.
    • No hotlinking to images, try to upload them to either GBAtemp's picture service or somewhere like tinypic/photobucket. Please make sure the name of the movie is not contained in the url.
    • Don't "hit and run". If you're going to guess at a movie, make sure you can stick around long enough to see if your guess was correct and post the next film. If you take too long posting the next movie (24 hours or judge's discretion), you will lose the point.
    • The winner of a round is the judge for the next round.
    To make it easier for people to know whether or not a pic for a particular film has been posted a list is kept along with the scores. Whenever you update the scores the list should be updated as well. We've gotten into the habit of using the list to link to the IMDb page for the movie, but if you have trouble with that part, just list the movie. You'll get the hang of it quick enough!

    The theme for this round is Comedies!. Please make sure your movie would generally fall under the Comedy genre. Movies from any era are eligible.

    There is also a judge for each round for when problems occur. As the winner of the previous round, I have the dubious chore unique honor of being the judge this time around. Feel free to PM me with any issues. Bribes are not in any way suggested or encouraged. [​IMG]

    This round will run from today (July 23rd) through August 24th.

    Here's the list of all the past Name the Movie threads, just in case anyone wants to reminisce or see how much time has been wasted over the years.

    This should be a wide open round, so let's have some fun with it! We'll start with an absolute classic:

    Don't forget to PM the answer to the person who posted the previous movie. In this case, that would be me. Thanks.

    phoenixgoddess, it's now your turn to post a pic from a movie, and PM the answer to cracker. I'm guessing you're probably doing that pesky "sleeping" thing, this is just a reminder in case you're new to the game.

    Sleep? Sleep is still alive?! I haven't seen sleep in ages, where has it been?

    This one is a bit of a classic, should be easy though if you like these type of movies:
