Meme of the Moment: Clockbusters

This is my new addiction. It’s a shame there’s only fifty films on a loop. Basically, the guys at Veer have reduced a tonne of classic movies down to three photos, and give you 60 seconds to name them. I’m quite proud that I got 47 out of 50 on my first pass – though it took me a while to get the last three. There’s a nice mix of obvious ones in there, along with quirky takes on popular films. If you’ve got a spare ten minutes this weekend, it’s a great way to spend it. Check it out here.

I do have one minor complaint. To avoid spoiling it, highlight the following: muscles + robo-face + furnace = Terminator 2: Judgment Day, not The Terminator (which ended on a factory floor).

Still, fantastic little game, and I’d love to see them expand it – because it’s crap being addicted to a game you can only play once.
