    NO idea on the other one.  Everything I think of turns out wrong, but I know I've seen that image before!

    Correct and a good memory too. Deluge from 1933. I like the following image from the film.

     177 178 179

    A couple of easy ones, and I am thinking a most likely harder one in the mix as well.

    Didn't seem too hard for any odf them.  I'll take #178, and use my 3 sheet as 'proof'

    #178 answer correct from Jay. The Invisible Boy from 1957.

    # 177 clue is a British film.
    # 179 clue is a Japanese film.

    As I said, not that tough.  I'll take #177 as the tougher of the two.  #179 is a classic 50s monster flick

    #177: 1959

    Totally guessing, but I am thinking 181 is Panic in the Year Zero, and 183 is the 1978 Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Spot on guessing Bruce with both 181 and 183 answered correctly. The 183 image is of the cameo appearance of Kevin McCarthy the star of the 1956 original version of the film.


    Panic In Year Zero ( 1962 ) & Invasion Of The Body Snatchers ( 1978 ).

    180 has similar colours to Terminal Man
  • theartofmovieposterstheartofmovieposters Member Posts: 4,787 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
    182 earlier Invasion of the Body Snatchers?
  • HONDOHONDO Member Posts: 9,531 ✭✭✭✭✭✭ Le Grande Collector

    Rick said:

    Good thinking, but it isn't The Terminal Man from 1974. Concentrate on the previous decade's sci-fi films.
    182 earlier Invasion of the Body Snatchers?
    Correct, it is indeed the original 1956 version of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.

    Appearing in the below scene is Sam Peckinpah, the famous film director playing the part of Charlie the meter reader. 



    In my opinion one of the best sci-fi films ever made. Anyone agree?

  • HONDOHONDO Member Posts: 9,531 ✭✭✭✭✭✭ Le Grande Collector




    Final clue for # 180 is gimmicks.

    180 Project X

    Correct. Project X was one of many films that used this title. This version released in 1968. The film had special sequences animated by Hanna-Barbera and was produced and directed by William Castle.

     184
     185
    186                                                                                                 187

    The previous four images displayed, with and without any clues, were answered promptly. I think this new batch will probably range from being easy and up to difficult to solve.

    Is 184 The Tunnel (Transatlantic Tunnel)? It is the only Richard Dix sci-fi I know.

    Well picked up Bruce. This Richard Dix film from 1935 as far as I can see was his only sci-fi film. This ambitious British film imported a number of American actors to appear in the film.

    186 is obviously Star Wars. I had a 6-sheet with that image on it.
  • HONDOHONDO Member Posts: 9,531 ✭✭✭✭✭✭ Le Grande Collector
    186 is obviously Star Wars. I had a 6-sheet with that image on it.
    Correct, and it is of course from Star Wars from 1977.



     

    The  original Star Wars U.S. international  6 sheet.

    This poster is currently up for sale on eBay for $5,995.00 U.S.

     Are you thinking Dede perhaps you should have hung on to it for a while longer?

    I'm very glad I sold it when I did for much more than that!

    Clue for # 185 is sometimes it doesn't pay to be perfect. A bonus clue is some firsts involved with this film.

    Clue for # 187 is think of a number.

    Since I am the only one playing, I will post that #185 is Looker.

    I do REALLY well with horror/sci-fi, but REALLY terribly with war movies. They all the look the same to me! I suspect I would be even worse with cowboy movies!

    Correct in that # 185 is Looker ( 1981 ). I really appreciate your participation Bruce with my quizzes on the genres that you obviously know and enjoy.

    You are not alone in the subject of Western movies. I introduced a thread titled The Western Quiz in September 2015, and by the end of the same month ceased posting any new entries due to little interest. Pancho commented he wasn't interested in westerns and Ves said she would struggle. Fortuneately the War Movies Quiz I also introduced in September 2015 has been my most viewed and participated in quiz.

    Now back to Looker.



    Movie review Looker  A GATOR IN NAPLESLooker 1981 German movie poster


    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Looker is a 1981 American science-fiction film[1] written and directed by Michael Crichton and starring Albert FinneySusan Dey, and James Coburn.[4] The film is a suspense/science-fiction piece that comments upon and satirizes media, advertising, television's effects on the populace, and a ridiculous standard of beauty.

    Though sparse in visual effects, the film is notable for being the first commercial film to attempt to make a computer-generated, three-dimensional, solid-looking model of a whole human body. However, as with its predecessors FutureworldStar Wars, and Alien, this was an example of "CGI representing CGI", and only depicted on CRT screens in the movie, rather than being used as a special effect. The model had no skeletal or facial movements and was not a character. Looker was also the first film to create three-dimensional (3D) shading with a computer,[5] months before the release of the better-known Tron
