Guess the Film (2007 Mystery Film Edition)

Time to reveal the mystery movie of 2007. Let's look at the clues again and go through them one-by-one.

1. Cyndi Lauper - Cyndi's first album She's So Unusual was released in 1983 and this film is set in 1983.

2. Russell Crowe appeared in the movie Romper Stomper, which is about skinheads. This movie is also about skinheads.

3. Robbie Williams' Rudebox album has a song called "The '80s", which is like a song version of this movie.

4. Anthony Edwards plays "Goose" in Top Gun. The lead actor in this film is Thomas Turgoose.

5. Sinead O'Connor has a shaved head, much like the main characters in this movie.

6. This is a meadow. The film's director is Shane Meadows.

7. There is a character called "Smell" (because it rhymes with Michelle)

8. The movie is set during the Falklands War and this is the Falkland Island coat of arms.

9. Shane Meadow has a film called Twenty Four Seven and this image was the cover of Twenty 4 Seven's "Slave to the Music" single.

So, incase you haven't already figured it out, the answer is:


Hey, I never said the clues were literal. Congrats to "Anonymous" for getting it from the start and to the people who replied, sent emails or messages on Facebook thanks for playing. I'll have another one up soon!

goonies, romper stomper, robbie from the midlands, bald goose and sinead, meadows (as in shane), faukland islands.

could it be "This Is England?"

because if it is, then you're right, it is the year's best movie.

If it IS "This Is England," then that was very clever picking Anonymous. Great movie too...

You givin me a headache, Glenn.


i want to say ZODIAC because of the top gun image of Anthony Edwards... but then as much as I would love to connect Cyndi Lauper (one of my favorite things) to everything... i can't suss out why she would be all up in the zodiac killer.

but... argh. no it's only that one photo that made me think of zodiac

Nat, it could all be a big ol' puzzle because it was Zodiac? Puzzles being a big part of Zodiac and all. Because that's slightly brilliant. Alas, I'm not that intelligent and I saw Zodiac back in April.


wait now i want to say assassination of jesse james

you've got photos nature of (flowers) obsession (sinead o connor) top gun (guns, duh), smelly (they didn't look like they bathed), but the other pictures still don't make sense to me.

or lust caution?

i give up. argh

I really liked This is England - it made me laugh more than most films this year. But I found it hopelessly sentimental at times, and quite formulaic at the end of the day
