Some hints on the remaining answered questions:
12)
  • Previous hint: Very B-Grade movie, there's a big hint written on his sash.
  • Bigger hint: Mother and father rescue the planet from morons.
19)
  • Previous hint: People have already pretty much solved it - just got to finish the answer
  • Bigger hint: Seriously, read back through te previous guesses at this then reread the rules on what's needed for a complete answer Smilie
23) It's all in the reflexes
24) I'm stunned that this one hasn't been picked yet. Maybe all I need is a deck of cards while I wait?
32) Imagine what would have happened at Pearl Harbour if a modern carrier was transported back in time to the day before the bombing...

About 19: we get it that all that remains is to ID those 4 characters. This would require actually watching that movie. Ick. Someone else can grab that point. Interesting though... I am making separate posts and the forum software is consolidating them into updates of my earlier post.

All three correct! 3 Points for Perderabo
(I didn't actually know the downed Japanese pilot was named in the movie, I was just looking for Laurel's name - well done finding that one!)

Don't forget that only one character name is required Smilie
Not a fan of that movie I take it? Fair enough - you're only the second person I've met that doesn't like it Smilie

Yeah, it caught me by surprise when that started happening - but I'd just assumed it was deliberate... Smilie It can be a bit of a pain with things like this thread as it's harder for me to break up different parts (like the rules and the first 5 images), but most of the time I rather like it.

OK, here is a WAG:
19) Soap from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

I thought we really needed all 4 names.

As I'm going away on holiday for a few weeks, I'm going to have to end the contest here - it appears that the momentum's died off anyway now Smilie

Feel free to keep guessing the remaining ones of course but the prize will just be the adulation of the other readers instead of cold hard Bits.

Winners to be announced in a few

The victors!

Winnings will be sent out shortly (via the post award system as it seems fitting for the purpose).

Congratulations to all who took part - it's been fun Smilie
