006 - Quiz TAMH 2! Round DOS!
Kiddies! Welcome to the site! What a lovely visit you shall have, all thanks to the Second Quiz TAHM! Last week we showcased two belt buckles. I asked what movie they were from, and very few correct responses indeed. In my research, I've discovered way too much about the buckles Bruce Wayne has sported in his many different permutations.
Here's a little lesson. First the original unmolested image:
Admittedly, adding the Filmsquish™ veneer made the correct answer of Batman & Robin nigh indistingushable from the Kilmer outfit, however I will direct you to the textures of the Kilmer and Clooney buckles, and you will notice right away that Kilmer's unit is as smooth as Robin's tuchus, whereas Clooney's is all embossed and shite.
You have no idea how long it took me to find the proofs for the above quiz. I am now a self-made expert in the uniforms in this series of successful yet LCDF films that are the bittersweet Batman Serial - minus Bale and Keaton, who are effin' great.
One last final word: a Batman outfit with gloriously prominent nipples? Who the eff thought of that one?
Next, I gave an admittedly cruel clue in that 'X-ray specs' and 'Xerxes' both start with the letter 'X'. With that God-damned sepia tone Roman bronze filter crap that single-handedly stopped me from seeing this plotless gimmick of a Frank Miller masturbatory work, here's the original screenshot from the film 300. In defence however, anyone who derides this film because it isn't historically accurate might want to recall that the source material is A COMIC BOOK.
Why would anyone just willy-nilly splash on such an obvious colour filter over their work like that? What stupid idiot does that?
Anyhoo... Er... we're going to have the next round sans Filmsquish™ veneer, if that's ok. Rather than asking for the film title, I want to know the name of the character who wore the following buckles:
And a one:
And a two:
The rules are simple: look at the image that, this week, is sans Filmsquish™ veneer. It may be a film screencap, a film poster, perhaps simply a photograph of the buckle in question, whatever. What I want from you is the name of the individual who sports said belt buckle represented in each of the two above images. Hovering your mouse over the picture may or may not reveal a clue.
One final clarification, each buckle is worn by different characters. It's not the same person.
Good Luck! Name that movie!
Since the Filmsquish Quiz is based on a points system, even if you just get one out of two, you might still get ahead.
Quiz day is Monday! You have until the answer is posted the following week to submit your guess. This is the second round of FOUR. The winner will be the individual who answers the most quizzes correctly. Simply put, the highest score wins! Winners will receive their choice of a free movie from my own personal collection.
