Spot the film

January 31st, 2012

Can you tell the movie from the book cover?

I only got 5 out of 20. Pretty poor, really, considering that I reckon 4 out of the 20 are blindingly obvious or easily guessable.1

  1. Though one of those 4 requires you to know the name of the source novel rather than that of the film.

Film Alphabets

January 12th, 2012

Stephen Wildish has produced some lovely illustrations of 'Film Alphabets', arranged by decades: The 1960s, The 1970s, The 1980s, The 1990s, and finally The 2000s.

The ones shown above are all pretty easy, but there are a couple of fairly obscure choices in each decade. I was a little surprised at how many films I recognised from the 1960s and 1970s, but there's not a single decade for which I correctly identified every film.

How many can you name?

The Big Album Cover-Up

June 7th, 2009

How many reversed album covers can you spot?

I got 10 out of 15. Worse yet, a couple of the 5 I got wrong are albums I own!
