Mystery Picture Quiz

Mystery Pic #100

Well, here we are at last – the one hundredth Mystery Pic Quiz post! Guess the film from the picture and win stuff…

===================================================

++ STOP PRESS ++

A mere 41 minutes in and first commenter James Marsh has got the right answer: Peter Weir’s The Way Back (2010).

Congratulations to James, and hard luck the rest of you.

===================================================

To spur you indolent wretches into action, for this round and this round alone I have scoured my shelves for doubles and kicked up a not inconsiderable little treasure trove of DVDs for a prize:

Mystery Pic #100 - prizes (2)

Okay, so they’re all ‘pre-owned’ and some of the keepcase hubs are a bit knackered, and the booklet is missing from the Terminator boxset – but this is free shit, dammit! Sixteen films and four TV series across twenty-five discs!!!

To win, all you need to do is identify the film from the screengrab at the top of this post. That’s it. Post your guess in the ‘Comments’ section below; the first one to the right answer wins.

And not only am I offering up a bounty to encourage you all to enter, this time I am also providing clues…

  1. It’s a film I have previously mentioned on this blog, and one I have watched in the last year (hint, hint…)
  2.  The director has made some big Hollywood pictures, but that’s not how he started out
  3. It’s based on a book about real life events
  4. It features an international cast
  5. You need a fifth clue? Lazy!

Mystery Pic #100 - prizes (1)

Right, well I’m reviving the Mystery Picture Quiz – I have gone through the last few unanswered rounds and identified the film in question to tidy things up.

TBH you chaps need to pull your socks up: the house has accrued an unbroken run of fourteen films; and you lot have only correctly named one film in the last 27! Shameful stuff.

Anyway, we are now into the high nineties; in a shameless bid to stoke up a bit of interest, I will be offering a prize of some description (TBC – probably a bunch of DVDs) to the winner of the Glittering Golden Round #100, which I will post up on the morning of Friday 11 January 2012

In the meantime we will have three teaser rounds for you to warm up on, starting today.

Oh, and below are both the current leader board, and the full list of films posted.
