Freeze Frame

by | Apr 30th, 2010 | 6:15PM | Filed under: Quizzes, Contests & Polls

It seems like only yesterday I was wondering how it already got to be the end of March… and now here we are at the last day of April. Not that I’m complaining — it’s a gorgeous 80-degree evening here in Chicago and summer is right around the corner. Which means that I’ll inevitably have the nightmare I always seem to have this time of year: I fall into a deep sleep and miss all of the warm months. Shudder.

Today’s Freeze Frame challenge is loosely connected to the kickoff of the summer movie season next week… but that’s the only hint I’m going to give you. If you have no idea what to do with the images below, I’ll explain at the bottom of the post. Everyone else — get to guessin’!

Movie #1

Movie #2

Movie #3

The Freeze Frame rules: if you recognize the movies above, tell me what they are in the comments section below. The first to do so correctly gets his or her name in bold on Monday and will also be granted the privilege of molding an aluminum foil trophy for in his or her spare time. Everyone who guesses the link between the films — something they have in common — will also get their names listed, as well as the honor of crafting a Common Thread Button o’ Pride.

See, it’s easy! Good luck… and we’ll hold off on posting ANY answers until Monday.

    Hitch, Shark Tale, Wild Wild West — which of course all have Will Smith. I suppose they recently announced MIB 3, but I don’t know why else he would be chosen this week …

    I’m new to REDBOX but I won’t be using them again! Please tell me how to get REDBOX to stop taking my money!!

    I tried to return a DVD (Defendor) on the 29th – the machine was down – the next nearest machine is too far away. On the 30th I returned the DVD after the machine was working again. On the 30th I was charged TWICE for a rental. We called and talked to you when we couldn’t return the DVD – as per the store owners instructions – and you still charged me a late fee – TWICE – on the same day…. after you told me this wouldn’t happen!!

    Please stop taking my money and put the money back you took without permission.

    Thanks,
    Chanse Linder
