Pull Yourself Out of That Turkey-Induced Coma and Take a Shot at Freeze Frame

by | Nov 27th, 2009 | 2:00PM | Filed under: Uncategorized

Yeah, I know you're probably in no mood to focus any energy on identifying movie stills.  There are leftovers to reheat, right?  Football to watch! Shopping to do!  Sales to take advantage of!  A slew of movies that opened on Thanksgiving to see at the theater!

But think of it this way — eventually, by Monday, you're probably going to have to start using that ol' brain again.  Playing Freeze Frame is a great way to ease yourself, slowly, tenderly, and cautiously, back into the realm of reality.  And it's still fun — it's not like we're asking you to fill out an expense report or draft a memo or stock a shelf or punch a timecard.  So enough with your excuses — you're here and you need to play!

For newbies to the game: check out the three images below and then enter your guesses for what films they're from in the Comments section (linked to directly beneath this post).  We'll reveal the victor in bold on Monday, as well as the second and third runners-up. Did I mention that we will also bestow the honor of a self-made aluminum-foil trophy upon the first person to get it right?

And anyone — no matter what position they're in in the lineup — who tells us what the three movies share gets to make themselves a Common Thread Button O' Pride.  This one should be EXTREMELY easy, people!

But that being said, I still wish you luck.  

Movie #1

Ff1

Movie #2

Ff2

Movie #3

Ff3

Check back on Monday for the winners and answers, and in the meantime, get back to enjoying your holiday weekend.
