Ed. Note - I had this all set up and ready to go last night, but apparently never published it or the challenge photo. So I'm backposting this one to the proper day as today is a totally different scheduled post. So then...
It’s my old buddy, Stephen H (@gundarkhunter), who chimes in with the only correct guess in what I swore would be an easily guessed #MiniMoviePosterMonday.
I was pretty happy that my friend Mike H. guessed last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday correctly. After all, it was from a franchise he loves.
Kazza was the only one to chime in with the correct answer of TRON to last week's #MiniMoviePosterMonday. That surprised me. If nothing else, I figured either the pattern or the glowy blue color would've given it away to more people. C'est la vie.
At least I had an excuse for missing #MiniMoviePosterMonday two weeks ago. I was on vacation. Missing it this week? Nope. No excuses. I just forgot it and was mildly obsessed with finishing Outer Banks season 2 with Katie. Hey, we all have our priorities.
You may have noticed that I didn’t post a Macro Monday challenge photo last week. Hey, I was on vacation. I’m allowed a, er, vacation! Now it’s time to play catch up, though.
Last week was another one of those situations where I really wish social media had better time stamps for posts and comments. As it stands, it could’ve been Kazza on IG or Eric K on FB that got #MiniMoviePosterMonday right. So… both?
Okay, I admit last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday wasn’t entirely straightforward. I was scraping at the end of the night to post something and grabbed a case that was near our TV instead of digging through the library.
Holy crap! Week 26! We’re halfway through the year now??? Ugh.
Our former next door neighbor, Mike 1 (or “Mike” of “Mike & Ike”) was first with Jumanji. I was happy that a few different people guessed it correctly. I enjoyed snapping that one.
It would appear that Matt is building his own little #MiniMoviePosterMonday empire. Two weeks in a row including last week’s challenge photo.
Unfortunately, no one got last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday. I blame Red Skull for being such a subtle element in this poster for Captain America: The First Avenger.
Okay, so last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday wasn’t without a little hiccup. As I stated, I wanted to end Christa’s winning streak, which was at three.
Christa is on a roll with #MiniMoviePosterMonday. Three in a row including last week’s.
Christa B. got last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday with Inglourious Basterds. Great film. I love it insanely.
For a second week, although this time husband-less, Christa (@toosneezy on IG) identified the #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photo correctly. This time, it was Hot Fuzz, a movie I have not seen in far too long. Time to remedy that.
If my recollection is any good at all (I highly doubt it is), then we have a new winner on last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photo with Holly correctly guessing The Italian Job (2003).
As it turns out, I had a husband and wife tagteaming for the answer to last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday. Good thing they got it right or I wouldn’t have let them live it down.
I knew going in last week, that the cover I selected for #MiniMoviePosterMonday may not be guessed correctly, if at all. It's not a particularly popular film despite belonging to a very venerated franchise of films. So, I was not at all surprised that no one got it.
I think my old friend Stacy is starting to find her stride with #MiniMoviePosterMonday. I think she’s gotten at least two or three in the short time I’ve been doing this.
Okay, I admit it may seem like a bit of nitpicking to make sure you, as a contestant in #MiniMoviePosterMonday (or any of my macro challenges, for that matter), put the full title of the movie in your guess. But it really is not.
You know how I’ve said that the more participation I get in one of my macro posts, the more excited I am? After this past week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday, I’m practically bouncing off the walls.
After about a day, during which time I started to lose hope anyone would guess it, I got two correct answers. The first, though, was my sister-in-law.
My buddy, Matt, nailed what I thought would be a much easier #MiniMoviePosterMonday... Toy Story 4.
Yay! Back to challenge photos that elicit a lot of both correct guesses and fun incorrect ones! I like those the best. Well our cousin Stacy was first.
I really hoped it would be longer into the run of #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photos that I stumped y’all. Eight weeks and all were successfully guessed! Can’t go on forever, I suppose.
My Sister-in-Law Jen was first to nail last week’s challenge photo with one of the greatest movies ever made... Tombstone!
It may be blasphemy to say, but I’d argue that the trilogy represented by last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photo is one of if not the best trilogies of films ever. Congrats to my old buddy Eric on the win.
Sorry this is late. Have to post date it because I was working late and then just couldn’t focus at all.
Christa took the prize with last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday and Crazy Rich Asians. I really thought the flamingo would be tougher. Guess not.
Several correct answers were sent in for last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday. But only one can be the winner, right? At least when I’m not too lazy to check time stamps, that is. That winner is Christa!
My buddy Reuben was back on top with his stab at last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photo. ‘Twas Bumblebee!
I was pretty happy to have had as many guesses on last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday as I had. And with a few of the guesses correct, to boot. The winner was Lynne who, I think, was playing for the first time.
Welcome to the 2021 revision of Macro Monday! My plan for this year is to take macro photos of movie covers/posters and post those for everyone to guess.
While I’m really disappointed that nobody got last week’s #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo, I’m heartened to know that I’ve actually come up with a photo post idea to tide me through 2021.
