Damn Devin Faraci at Badass Digest for bringing this to my attention and thereby killing my plans for a productive pre-SXSW working weekend. It’s a website called Famous Objects From Classic Movies and it’s a brilliantly clever game that combines the Hangman with movie trivia. You get an image of a, yes, famous object from a classic movie like that biplane above, and it’s up to you to figure out that movie’s title (in this case “North by Northwest”). If you don’t know the image you can guess letters, but be careful: three wrong guesses and you lose the round and move on to the next image. Yes, 14-0 is my score at the time I grabbed that screencap, and yes, I left that score in the screencap on purpose. Look, I have so little in my life to be proud of, just let me have this.
I played about 75 puzzles (and did get a few wrong eventually) before I realized I was lost in a 1979 live action Disney movie starring Maximilian Schell and needed to do something else. So I wrote a blog post about it. Now that I’ve done that and have been so incredibly productive, I can go back to playing some more. Enjoy your weekend, what little of it won’t be spent playing this.
