A different kind of poster quiz... (Stained Glass Cinema #1)

At the risk of becoming too "quizy," I'm trying this out. Can you guess the movie?

























If no one can get it with this effect, I'll update this post with the same poster and a different effect. Thanks to Mrs. Fletch and her mad Photoshop skillz for the assist.

Jess said...

Looks like Star Wars and Masters of the Universe.

Nick said...

Is it 'The Doors'?

Adam Ross said...

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?

elgringo said...

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is my guess.

Paul Arrand Rodgers said...

But that poster has floating heads and horses. This, very clearly, is Arnold with a chick at his legs.

Conan. For sure. Although the "dude with the sword/lightsaber/chainsaw/shotgun pointed to the sky with chicks at his feet" seems to be a fairly common theme. Star Wars, Army of Darkness, ATHF, and of course the all time best of the worst: Beastmaster

Fletch said...

It's absolutely Conan - well done, Kano.

I just wanted to wait and see if anyone else would make other guesses and (yay) they did. Makes me feel thismuch better. :)

I need to stop gauging the difficulty of these poster/screenshot quizzes by how hard I think they are. I'm obviously not as good as I think I am.

Though...I was told be the person that's done the best at The Great Movie Poster Piece Contest that they thought it was hard as hell, so I got that goin' for me, which is nice...

Doug said...

Good quiz. I'd like to see more of those.

Evan Derrick said...

You've officially inspired me, Fletch. I'm starting my own Poster Contest next month. You're my hero.

Fletch said...

Doug - thanks for reading, and you will, despite the easiness of this one.

Evan - Can't wait. I know it ain't hardcore analysis, but I think stuff like this is fun.

By the way - did you get my email RE my submission for Noir Month?

It's poster crazy time!

I still have to take your other one...

I'm no expert, but isn't National Lampoon's Summer Vacation also based on the Conan poster? I don't have time to look, ignore me as an idiot if I'm wrong.

Fletch said...

Yes you do need to take The GMPPC.

Summer Vacation is similar, but if I recall, Clark is holding up a lightning bolt instead of a sword. Styles are pretty close.

Mrs Fletch said...

pssssst - anyone who'd like scoop on how to cheat the system can bribe me...
A: by talking Mr Fletch into getting another pug
B: with profuse and somewhat sincere compliments
