2018 New Years Drawing

#1 Post by Minkin » Sun Dec 31, 2017 9:38 am

Keep going until Domino gets mad :P

Also, perhaps label which image your guess refers to - so we don't get a million people guessing the pomegranates are cantaloupes or something

Image


So that people don't keep saying the same things without reading, I'll keep track on here - of things which the forum has some reasonable degree of certainty on - which will ultimately end up on the Forthcoming list.

Awful Truth (dog with hat)
Bowling for Columbine (bowling ball about to crash into ten bullet pins)
Bringing up Baby / Thin Man (skeleton "Mr Bone" / a thin man - next to Skippy the dog)
Color of Pomegranates (the two pomegranates)
Graduation + Beyond the Hills (the mortarboards being tossed off in the distance)
Ingmar Bergman films (moon + woman with Swedish flag) - probably a box or just a ton of Bergman coming in 2018
Other Side of Hope (backwards HOPE sign)
Scarlet Empress (red M in the press/vice)
Tree of Life (tree)
Virgin Suicides (the Extra Virgin Olive Oil bottles doing an annoying running exercise)

truck + river are a bunch of non-clues dealing with Filmstruck
(streaming on Filmstruck):
Double feature Friday
Tuesday film + short film
Meat the Filmmakers
Every Frame a Painting / Observations in Film Art
Moo-V

For those playing at home, we only have the Knight L left to solve.
Ok, in case Domino locks this, the L is either L'Amore (1948) or El Sur. Criterion have the right to both, so whichever gets announced first = winner

I sincerely hope that the bowling ball about to knock over the bullets is not for Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine."

The dog with the hat in his teeth looks like The Awful Truth!
Also, Scarlet M Press?

The hats being thrown in the air in the back are Cristian Mungiu's Graduation, no?

Yeah, that certainly has to be Skippy (I thought it was the HMV dog). Although he probably does the same thing in The Thin Man series, this screenshot seems to cinch it for Awful Truth:

I think the three running extra virgin olive oils may just be The Virgin Suicides.

Could the armored "L" be Bresson's Lancelot du lac?

Also from Reddit:

It appears the the Film Truck is just a bunch of non-clues to do with Filmstruck (streaming on Filmstruck):
Double feature Friday
Tuesday film + short film
Meat the Filmmakers
Every Frame a Painting / Observations in Film Art
cow = Moo-V

Is everything in the water things that are being added to Filmstruck? Film+truck?

Edit: someone beat me to this.

And the fact that the hats are thrown Beyond the Hills must mean something?

I'm not just a someone!

Yeah, there's surely better ways to promote Filmstruck than ruining half of your New Years clue.

Although I did think it was The Shining at first - with the blood river coming out + the days of the week.

Well, we've moved through this clue very quickly -compared to last year, which still has unsolved things / grumbling!

I think we only have the knight / armored L (or worm) left to pin down

+

Whatever is going on with the Scandinavian flag woman on the moon (Princess from the Moon? Paper Moon? Swedish flag = Bergman something?)

I think it symbolizes the death of physical media.
