What's new

GIVEAWAY! Some modest EDC gear - How well do you know my favorite movies? PIF


I have put together a few items that might be well suited for EDC but you can of course use them as you like. They are all brand new and back in their original packaging after taking the photo.


I'm not good at photography and the lighting has made the watch look almost black but it is really this one here.
Casio W-218H-2AVCF.jpg

This is what you're playing for:

Casio W-218H-2AVCF watch
Kershaw Leek 1660 assisted open knife
Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 650 lumen flashlight
XTAR Ant MC1 Plus charger
14500 Lithium Ion cell
Pilot Metropolitan White Tiger fountain pen M nib
Zippo DE Blade lighter


How to play: Below is a pointless YouTube video I made way back in 2009. It contains screenshots from 201 of my favorite movies. All you have to do is make a list from 1 to 201 and name each movie in the order it appears in the video. Then send it to me via private message using the Start Conversation button that pops up when you hover your mouse above my user name or avatar. Please leave blank the spots for the movies you don't know. Your entry should look like this with a number then title, one entry per line please.

1. Movie A
2. Movie B
4.Movie W
7. Movie S

and so on up to 201.

Please be specific as possible. Some are part of trilogies or franchises so I need the actual movie title.

BTW the little red witch on the broom at the beginning is not part of the list.


After you have sent me your entry please post "entry sent" or something to that effect in this thread.

If anyone gets them all I will be extremely surprised. There are many easy ones but several not so easy and a few foreign ones that will be particularly challenging I'm sure. Whoever gets the most correct will win the prize. If there is a tie I will use some random way to choose the winner. This PIF is open to members with a Canadian or US mailing address. If you're outside of the US/CA but have a friend or family inside I can mail to then please feel free to enter. As always I ask that the goods not be sold for profit but sharing with others is fine. If you have any questions about any of the gear you can ask in this thread though google and YouTube will be good sources of info as well.

I plan to let this go until Aug 20 or so if there is enough interest. You are welcome to use help to find your answers short of any kind of magical screenshot recognition software. Is there such a thing yet?

Good luck to you all and I hope you can have some fun with this!

Just remember,
Thank you!

Hint for those who read to the end. This video was made in 2009 so there won't be any really recent titles on the list. Also, after the first few titles which start with numbers, most of the rest are at least loosely in alphabetical order.
Wow! Congrats & thank you on an original idea for a pif & making it quite entertaining as well. I watched the video & recognized many of them. Amazing how one second is enough to remember certain movies. Good luck to all entries!

Thank you sir! I realize this one might take longer than usual for entries to start coming in but I hope a lot of people will find it a fun challenge and give it a shot.
Just now seeing this. Nice PIF. I carried a Zippo for years even though I wasn't a smoker. It came in handy several times. I tried carrying a Leek, but it kept slipping out of my pocket, so I wound up giving it to my brother. Very nice knife though. Back when I wore watches Casio was my preferred watch. That's a well rounded EDC.
It's time to announce the winner. Thanks to everyone who put in an entry. I know it was a lot of work but I hope you all enjoyed the process a little bit. First let me show the full list of movies that were in the video.

I wasn't expecting anyone to get nearly as many as the winner did but he surprised me indeed.

With 185 correct answers the winner of this contest PIF is hugosf. Congratulations sir! You did so well that Darth Vadar himself wanted to say a few words to you.

In addition to his 185 exact matches hugosf had four more answers that were the right movie saga but not the exact movie so he only missed 12 outright.

So, hugosf, if you would kindly send me your mailing address and a phone number (required by customs if you are not in Canada), I will get your prize on its way to you as soon as possible.
