Since I don't see one currently running and I have a large collection of screen shots I figured I would start one.

My tastes run the gamut and for the last several months I have been taking screen shots from all the DVD's that I get from Netflix so you will see all sorts of movies in this contest good, bad, old and new.

Scoring:
Each round is worth 5 points, if only 2 or 3 people get it right it is worth 7 points, if only one person correctly identifies the shot they will be awarded 10 points. I don't know how long this will go on. I will be posting two rounds a day, I will try and get them up at 6:30PM PST everyday when I get home from work. There will not be rounds on weekends, but I will probably do 3 or 4 shots on Friday.

I will keep a score sheet in this post.

On to the first round, just click the picture to PM me your answer:

I know I've seen the movie for Round 1A, but I just can't remember! At least 3 and 4 were relatively easy.

Man...I was thinking that Round 1 was some sort of horror movie Posted Image
The unibrow just didn't register Posted Image

I'm semi-sure on Round 6 and definitely know Round 5, that scene is the highlight of an otherwise dismal flick.

BROOK RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bill saw a movie he didn't like? Posted Image

It was nice being in first for a day. I'm certain I've seen 5 and I think I might have seen 6, but neither movie is coming to me.
