IMDB Plot Keyword Game
« on: April 04, 2013, 08:18:36 AM »
Let's play a game!  This is a game that Matt Singer and Alison Willmore play on Filmspotting SVU (and some of their previous work). 

I think of a movie, list any 5 of the plot keywords from IMDB, and you try to guess what it is.  Whoever guesses right gets to pick the next movie. 

Baseball
Polyester
Reference to Abraham Lincoln
Paint
Neo McCarthyism

I figured it out, but I cheated, so I won't say. It turns out one of the keywords is unique to that movie. I've never seen it, so I wouldn't have got it. This game seems fun, though.

awww man..I cheated  :( I have besmirched the game with my besmirching ways. I have brought great shame on myself and my family. I know what it is now. This secret will die with me, as I cannot hold this heavy yoke of guilt much longer. But I do agree, this looks like a fun game.   ;D

i think I got it with no cheating

Dazed and Confused

Playing baseball, the paint on OBanyon's head, the Lincoln hat, 70s stoners wearing polyester.  The paddle Even if I'm wrong its a good guess

I could have posted the exact same thing. Hopefully the next one is something I've seen.

It's also not streaming on Netflix. So there's that.
