    Who but the HTF could help?

    We are running an internal contest at work. we got about 18 pics that are screenshots from movies. we have to name what movie they are from. The catch is the characters have been digitally removed and all we see are their clothes! all scenes look like scenes from the invisible man [​IMG]

    I have figured out about half but I need help with the rest.

    how can I post the pictures up?

    it's a PDF file, how do I get the pics off and post them here for you guys to see?

    thanks in advance!

    EDIT: here is a link to the PDF file

    REMOVED

    that won't work, it's internal so asks for login.

    I am willing to e-mail the PDF file to any volunteers...

    buddy, you rock. never saw the movie so I don't feel so bad.

    too bad the others can't be described as easily...

    Well the prize is a portable DVD player with car charger.

    So all who help are welcome to a roadtrip with entertainment [​IMG]

    Can you post the pics at Photobucket?

    If not, can you send me a copy so I can see if I know any of them?

    You need a full version of Acrobat (not the free Reader) to extract an image (and then only if it is allowed in the security settings). You could try doing screen caps with the "Print Screen" button, after which you would then do a "paste" command in something like Paint and then save as a JPEG.

    Rolando,

    It sounds like someone at worked copied the contests run at Filmwise called "The Invisibles" quiz. (They digitally take out the faces and one of the past answers was from "Napoleon Dynamite" wearing the "Vote for Pedro" shirt.)

    This is a link to all the past contests -- click on each to see the answer photos. ("Napoleon Dynamite" was one of the answers on Quiz #222.)

    http://www.filmwise.com/invisibles/index.shtml

    This may be cheating, but IF someone at work lifted the photos, that's cheating, too. [​IMG]

    #9 is "Spanglish" (They DID lift at least some from Filmwise because I've had about 6 hits so far.) (from Filmwise contest #235)

    #5 is "Scent of a Woman" (from Filmwise contest #215)

    I went through the whole list pretty quickly but didn't catch any others. My eyes are a little bleary now. [​IMG] I know for sure I've seen #4 there before, but it may have been on an archived contest.

    a few got together here and seem to have all the answers.

    I will post what we got and I will put spoiler tags for those who want to try to figure it out on their own.

    These are NOT the veryfied results, the contest is until midnight but this is what we came up with as a group:


    1.Napoleon Dynamite

    2.Full Monty

    3.Spaceballs

    4.Turner & Hooch

    5.Scent Of A Woman

    6.Firestarter

    7.Austin Powers, Goldmember

    8.Terminal

    9.Spanglish

    10.Don’t Say A Word

    11.Aviator

    12.Grease

    13.A Knight’s Tale

    14.Emperor’s New Groove

    15.E.T.

    16.Wayne’s World

    17.A Few Good Men



    Thanks guys for the help, I knew I could count on you guys!

    odds are slim I will win as many seem to have these answers now so the draw will be big but I had a blast.

    thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that #4 ISN'T Turner and Hootch, but is in fact Flashdance.

    That's a pretty neat contest but aren't you technically cheating? Hehe j/k. I wish i'd seen this post sooner I would've helped. Dang it!

    There's nothing "technical" about it, it is definitely cheating. How would his co-workers feel if they knew others were helping him out? Pretty unfair if you ask me.
