PostSubject: JULY COMPETITION - MOVIES BY NUMBERS   Mon Jul 04, 2011 11:00 am

Hi, Here's a fun way to while away those minutes not spent watching laserdiscs.

All you have to do is identify the number associated with each film clue below (each is a different number, there are no repeats), do the maths in the order given and, hey presto, you should get THE ANSWER which is also a film! We need to know that final film's title and who was in it. Easy peasy.



Start with Spielberg’s Year, then,

- Bertolucci’s Year

x Angry Men

÷ The Days Of The Condor

+ The shop on Charing Cross Road

- Heads In A Duffel Bag

÷ John Hughes’ Candles

x Degrees Of Separation

+ The Year We Make Contact

- Truffaut’s Blows

÷ Argento’s Flies On Grey Velvet

+ Conquest Of Paradise

- Disney’s Dalmatians

÷ Rafelson’s Easy Pieces

+ Hitchcock’s Steps

÷ The Things I Hate About You

x The Faces Of Dr Lao

+ Days At Peking

- Castle’s Ghosts

÷ Days In The Valley

+ Short Films About Glenn Gould

- Robert De Niro’s Minutes, and finally,

+ Michael Winterbottom’s Songs


The final answer is ………… which stars …………………………………………



If you've successfully got this far, send your answer as a Private Message on this thread and the first member to do so wins the prize! (Another £10 credit to be used in the Dinodisc store.)

You have until 6 pm on the 11th June - a whole week - to put batteries into that old calculator! The winner will be announced then.

Good luck!

I don't know how many of you attempted this month's competition and gave up. There were not too many entries, but there was definitely A WINNER!

So well done to PeaceMaker1 who not only got the right answer but he got it in just 51 minutes! Incredible!

A brand new BMW and a villa in Spain are wonderful prizes. Unfortunately, they're the prizes of a different competition, but who would want them anyway when you can get £10 off a purchase from the Dinodisc store? Come on, be honest!

For those who lost the will to live while trying to sort out your plusses from your minuses, here are the answers:

Start with Spielberg’s Year (1941) then,

- Bertolucci’s Year (1990)

x Angry Men (12)

÷ The Days Of The Condor (3)

+ The shop on Charing Cross Road (84)

- Heads In A Duffel Bag ( 8 )

÷ John Hughes’ Candles (16)

x Degrees Of Separation (6)

+ The Year We Make Contact (2010)

- Truffaut’s Blows (400)

÷ Argento’s Flies On Grey Velvet (4)

+ Conquest Of Paradise (1492)

- The Ocean’s original (11)

- Disney’s Dalmatians (101)

÷ Rafelson’s Easy Pieces (5)

+ Hitchcock’s Steps (39)

÷ The Things I Hate About You (10)

x The Faces Of Dr Lao (7)

+ Days At Peking (55)

- Castle’s Ghosts (13),

÷ Days In The Valley (2)

+ Short Films About Glenn Gould (32)

- Robert De Niro’s Minutes (15), and finally,

+ Michael Winterbottom’s Songs (9)


The answer is - 187, a film starring Samuel L. Jackson.

Thanks Ken,

So glad that I didn't win those other prizes actually...I mean, who needs two villas in Spain and another BMW?

£10 off an LD will do me thanks!
