Cool Site of the Day – 10/16/10: Name the Films Challenge
Today’s Cool Site of the Day comes from The Observer’s VSL editors… Think you’re a movie buff? You may want to reconsider, after testing yourself with this very clever animated quiz. Presented as part of the The Guardian and Observer Film Season, the Name the Films Challenge tasks readers with naming 26 films in 85 seconds. It may sound simple, but think again: The cleverly animated short has a few gimmies (yes, we do see that the The Godfather is an easy one, and so is The Birds), but we’re not so sure about a few sneaky ones in the middle. If you’re feeling confident, you can enter the contest to win each film on DVD (as well as bragging rights), but just watching the charming animation (hey, is that Borat?) makes the site worth a visit.
