    And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy."......

    Aww crap, that's the wrong speech.
    What I had meant to say was:

    WELCOME BACK to yet another thrilling round of Name The Movie!

    The rules are pretty simple, and are as follows (as originally written by 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 :

    Remember to send the answer to the previous poster when posting a picture for your turn.
    Remember to keep the scores updated.
    Remember to update the previous 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 GBAtemps picture service or somewhere like tinypic/photobucket.
    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. You'll get the hang of it quick enough!

    Sometimes the round have a theme, but just to get the ball rolling we'll start this one as general game. So you can pick a still from a film from any era or genre.

    There is also a judge for each round for when problems occur.
    TrolleyDave both judged and won the last round.
    (We promise he didn't cheat any more than usual)
    Our runner-up is unfortunately no longer a part of the forum.
    (let that be a warning to ya!.....no, just kidding)
    So to give TrolleyDave a well-deserved break, I will be judging this round.

    This round is dedicated to one of our long-time players, and a dear friend of the forum, Szyslak!
    He has chosen for this round a theme relevant to current events:
    Sports!
    Each movie in this round must either feature a sport in the title (ie; The Basketball Diaries) or the movie should be based mainly around a sport. Screenshots do not have to show people on the field of play, or in their sport uniform.

    Let us begin with a soft pitch:

    The file name is the name of this round, not the name of the film as Vulpes explained.

    I believe there has been some misunderstanding.

    the name of this movie is NOT "NTM Sports". The name of our game is NTM Sports.

    I'll take the blame for that mistake.


    EDIT: Thank you Dave! (So much for giving you a break)
