Name That Movie or TV Show 2

The first time we did this it was kinda fun, so I decided to do it again. Below you will find an image which contains snapshots from 25 different movies and/or TV shows. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify all of them.

Name That Movie or TV Show 2

Some of these should be really, really easy to identify while other might be really obscure. There are one or two images that are actually a little bit tricky. Can you get all of them?

    Wow! I’m actually surprised that 14 was guessed in the first shot! Nice one Steve! Then again, I reviewed that shot on here, and actually had that very screen shot posted so I guess it couldn’t be that hard.

    18 is not Abyss although I can see how it might look this way. Actually this one might be very hard to guess due to a small size of the image. So here is a hint – the guy on that picture is actually Bruce Willis. Low budget, but great cast and excellent script. :P

    22 is not Underworld. The guy on the right is actually the protagonist. It’s a really well known movie – just an obscure shot. ;)

    5 is not Babylon 5. It is from a science fiction TV show that used to air on SciFi channel though.

    25 is not Heavy Metal, although the word “metal” is in the title.

    Otherwise you guys are nailing them one by one!

    Ah! Marcus’s post got snagged by the anti-spam. It seems that he guessed the two shows I gave hints for in the last post – #25 (Fullmetal Alchemist) and #5 (Farscape). Good job!

    10 – 5th Element
    11 – The Professional aka Leon (i had to dig through Jean Reno movies to find that)
    17- Clerks
    18 – Armageddon
    21- I know i’ve seen that guy before, i can’t think of where.
    22 – fight club
    25 – not sure, but knowing you Fullmetal Alchemist.

  10. Luke Maciak UNITED STATES Mozilla Firefox Ubuntu Linux Terminalist says:

    Yup, #18 == 12 Monkeys. Go Steve!

    Among many others, ZeWrestler got #22 which was miss-guessed before. Yes it’s Fight Club!

    And yeah, #25 is Fullmetal Alchemist. :)

    Very nice! You nailed all of them except the following:

    #19 is actually Dogma – someone guessed it above
    #23 is indeed older anime, but it’s not Akira

    #24 is Idiocracy which is an actual movie – but yes, half of SNL regulars show up in there

    Wow. It seems that I got here too late. I loved the last post like this you did Luke, and it’s a shame everything but #23 has been solved. Sadly, I don’t have any guesses for #23. Maybe I’ll let my wife look at it. She’s more into anime than I am.

  17. Marcus GERMANY Mozilla Firefox Debian GNU/Linux says:

    I recognised the character from FMA depicted immedialtely. He was called Gluttony and was always eager to eat people. Disturbing.

    I will take a shot at 23. Battle Angel Alita?

  18. Luke Maciak UNITED STATES Mozilla Firefox Windows Terminalist says:

    @Dax – yeah, this was solved really fast too. I guess the most of the screenshots I picked were very distinctive. :P

    @Marcus – FMA has quite distinctive style – I think most characters would be recognizable at a glance if you are familiar wit the show.

    I knew 23 will be a problem. It is a fairly obscure cyberpunk anime from the mid 90’s. It’s not Battle Angel Alita though. :)

    Btw Battle Angel Alita Manga version > aime version.

    Yup, #2 is Alien. Good catch. :) I was really surprised it got guessed so quickly.

    I think it’s because I had it on my mind due to a song about it called Perfect Survivor I’ve been listening to recently.

    “I got one!”

  24. Moparx UNITED STATES Mozilla Firefox Linux says:

    No one has guessed #23 yet?

    It is called Armitage III and it is one of my favorites. :)
    Armitage III was an OVA series that was also turned into a movie.

    If you enjoy movies like blade runner you will enjoy Armitage.

    @Moparx! – excellent! Good eye, it is indeed Armitage III.

    Now the game is complete!
