The Netflix Game #3

by Jason Soto · April 28, 2012 · The Netflix Game · 27 Comments

Last week’s game was interesting. People had a harder time getting the mediums than the hards! I thought I made the hards, well, hard. But I guess in a way this game is subjective, so what do I know? Besides the answers. Speaking of, here are last week’s answers:

1. Two idiots must pass a high school exam or else the future is doomed!-Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
2. A space farmer must save the girl and stop an evil warlord!-Star Wars

1. A small guy makes tries to turn a business around while facing off a rich guy.-Roadhouse
2. Two local heroes become national stars but things go horribly wrong.-Wayne’s World

1. He’s back! Look out teenage ladies!-Halloween
2. Some unpopular kids try to fit in at their school.-Revenge of the Nerds

And your updated scoreboard:
Squasher88, Dan, Bubbawheat-3
Kano, Alex-2
Joel, Lackey-1

Gah, even in this new incarnation, Nick is kicking everyone’s ass. Well, let’s see how this week goes.

1. A nerdy kid meets a bug and suddenly he’s cool.
2. It’s up to these four guys to save New York!

1. This play isn’t going very well.
2. Musicians are reunited to save the place they grew up in!

1. After breaking up with his girlfriend, he must save her!
2. It’s the ’80s! Do a lot of coke and try to get back where we belong!

Please leave your guesses in the comments by telling me which one you’re are guessing. For example Hard 1, Medium 2, etc. Answers are on a first come basis. If anyone who has gotten points in the past aren’t happy with the names I used, please tell me what name you’d like to go by, even if it’s your website. Any other questions, leave them in the comments.

Good luck!

    E2: Ghostbusters 2 (just in case)

    M1: Hamlet 2

    H1: Twilight: New Moon

  4. Nick says:

    I’ll also say H1: Shaun of the Dead, just in case.

  5. Jason Soto says:

    Lackey gets both Easy’s! Nick get one of the hard’s! Good start!

  6. Dan says:

    I don’t get the reference to Coke, but I’ll try this because of the “back where we belong” reference.

    H2: An Officer and a Gentleman

    If that doesn’t work:

    H2: Less Than Zero

    • Jason Soto says:

      Nope, sorry. I’ll say this cause it won’t give anything away, the “coke” line is a nod to MST3K but it still fits the movie I’m describing.

  7. SJHoneywell says:

    M2 is The Blue Brothers

  8. Bubbawheat says:

    M1: Moulin Rouge?
    H2: Back to the Future?

  9. Bubbawheat says:

    M1: The Producers?

  10. Jason Soto says:

    Nope, nope, and….nope.

  11. Nick says:

    Hard 2… gonna toss this out there, thinking along “coca-cola” lines… E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.

  12. Alex Jowski says:

    Hard 2: Mac and Me

  13. Jason Soto says:

    Wow, I finally nailed it on the hard one. I should’ve made it worth 200 points or something. Nope, all wrong! Still a medium one to guess as well!

  14. Alex says:

    M1: Noises Off?

  15. Alex says:

    H2: American Psycho? Just because I just watched it and they do a lot of coke…

  16. Bubbawheat says:

    H2: The Coca-Cola Kid?

  17. Bubbawheat says:

    H2: The Gods Must Be Crazy?

  18. Alex Jowski says:

    Gonna guess blindly with H2: Hobgoblins – since that’s what the MST reference is.

    But The Gods Must Be Crazy seems like a damn good guess given the clue.

  19. Jason Soto says:

    Nope! It’s super tricky! I think people are reading a bit TOO much into it. Let’s go with a hint:
    Hard 2: Comedy from 2010.
