Each contest will be divided into four (4) rounds.
Each round will last seven (7) full days.
At the end of each contest, (after the fourth round) I will add up the scores and award a PRIZE
which will be delivered by a very large group of eastern European cobblers dressed in black.

Welcome to Name This Film!
A single film still will be posted once every week. (Monday-Sunday) beginning the week of March 29th 2010. The film still will not be posted on the same day or the same time each week...but there will be a pattern to the day and time of each posting (so pay attention).
Each film still will be rated in difficulty from 1 to 5...
Points are awarded as follows:
FIRST TO GUESS TITLE OF FILM = 2 pts multiplied by rated difficulty (1 to 5)
FIRST TO GUESS THE DIRECTOR = 2 pts
FIRST TO GUESS YEAR FILM WAS MADE = 2 pts
FIRST TO GUESS THE WRITER(S) = 2 pts
FIRST TO GUESS ALL ACTORS IN CLIP = 1 pt per name
ALL WRONG GUESSES = -1 pt
****YOU ARE ALLOWED ONLY ONE (1) GUESS PER 24 HOUR PERIOD****
which means that as soon as you post a guess...the clock starts ticking and 24 hours must pass before you can make another guess. If you violate this rule, all your guesses will be removed and any points you received with the film still will be deducted...and a ninja will egg your mailbox...and this blog will post your crime for all to see...and so on...
Sooooo...you can see that there is a strategy to this...If you are looking to sweep as many points as possible and you know what the film is - then making a guess that would not necessarily give the film away to everyone else would be the wise move.
I will keep score...and post the top five once each week at random days and times...
Periodically a BONUS film question will be posted for extra points
PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED!!! (dvd's, books, old socks....stay tuned for details)
also...from time to time, dedicated film lovers may guest post a film still from their favorite film for all to guess...PLUS - after a film has been guesses out, the floor will open to all for discussion and friendly banter...wheeee!
