The Movie Game is back

The Movie Game is back baby. It has been on hiatus for the past two weeks so that everyone could recharge their brains and study up on their movie knowledge. We are going to go 10 rounds and then a winner will be declared and they get to do something special with me (use your imagination, no not that, no not that either, you have a strange imagination). I have added something new to this version, if you have never played before, I suggest reading the rules.

RULES: I present you with two movies, for example: The Matrix and Miss Congeniality. The object of the game is to link them together to another movie by connecting the actors/actresses. The link in this case is Speed using Keanu Reeves from The Matrix and Sandra Bullock from Miss Congeniality. Another example is: Link Top Gun & The Shining. The answer is A Few Good Men, using Tom Cruise from Top Gun and Jack Nicholson from The Shining. Get it?

Now they all aren't this easy and sometimes there are multiple answers. The questions range from easy to hard and sometimes I like to throw in a challenging one to test those true movie buffs. You earn points for correct answers and I keep track of every one's points on the side of my blog. There is going to be a prize awarded to the winner. Try not to use the Internet. This is a game of memory and skill. I ONLY ACCEPT ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF AN EMAIL, DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWERS IN A COMMENT, LET EVERYONE HAVE A FAIR CHANCE AT PLAYING. EMAIL ANSWERS TO reviewsyoucantuse@gmail.com. GOOD LUCK!!

Easy - Link: Titanic & Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (worth 1 point)

Medium - Link: Spider-Man & Superbad (worth 2 points)

Hard - Link: Grumpy Old Men & Toy Story (worth 3 points)

Challenge - Link: Enough & Point Break & Mona Lisa Smile (worth 5 points)

Here is the new addition to the game. It's sort of like the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon but instead of using Mr. Bacon I am going to give you 2 random actors/actresses and you have to find the quickest link using movies. For example: Will Smith to Al Pacino. The answer could be: Will Smith in Men in Black with Tommy Lee Jones who is in Batman Forever with Chris O'Donnell who is in Scent of a Woman with Al Pacino. If you finding a quicker link than good for you. The less movies you use, the more points you get.

Link: Clint Eastwood to Jason Lee

Points are as follows:
In same movie together: 5 points
Using 2 movies: 4 points
3 movies: 3 points
4 movies: 2 points
5 + movies: 1 point

Remember to email me your answers. Answers will post on Friday morning. If you have any questions, email me.

This is a pretty cool game. Though I've seen a lot of movies I can't remember much about them and I don't really keep track of actors and other trivia.
