    RULES:

    One person posts a screenshot of a film that has a War theme, 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...

    Due to the game's constant progress (and multiple accounts of cheating), new rules were formed.
    • [*]In order to keep the game flowing, post the RIPEMD-128 hash under the picture of your film using this tool (input the IMDb url into the 'data' bar and click 'Convert Me!', then copy the whole RIPEMD-128 hash). The person who guesses can then check their answer by inputing the IMDb address of their guess into the RIPEMD-128 hash generator and if it matches then it's correct and you are allowed to proceed to post the next film. - Thanks to FAST6191 for this technique.
    • 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 War movies. Please make sure your movie would generally fall into this category. Here's a few things to keep in mind for this round.

    • No documentary's.
    • It has to be well known. Please don't post something that no one can solve, like.. say an indie movie that only 600 people watched.
    • It has to have received an English release or a subtitled release in the US. No Bollywood, no foreign cinema, unless, as said previously, with subtitles or dubs.
    • Can be any war, from any time.
    • Must be based on true events.
    • No Sci-Fi.
    • No animation.
    There is also a judge for each round for when problems occur.

    This round will run from today (June 8th) through August 21st.

    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.

    Lets start with something easy...
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    A famous movie, but it's not famous for the appropriate reason. But, it is one of the best war films I've ever seen.

    Der untergang translated means "Downfall".
    You were correct.

    Holoflame got it first, so it doesn't really matter.
