Movie Fonts

August 14th, 2008


Interesting, if flawed, quiz. Of the 24 I guessed at, I got 22 right. Not bad, considering that some images were fudged to separate them from the rest of the title–take the “U” in the third word (“Guess”); when you click on the image, you’ll see how the letter itself was changed in shape, and the surrounding background was completely altered to remove the giveaway clue. A lot you won’t get simply because you’re not familiar with the movie. And, although they had some giveaway fonts (c’mon, I’m not spoiling the “Shrek” answer), they did not include many of the more recognizable fonts, like the ones used in “Star Wars,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Se7en,” Lethal Weapon,“ ”The Right Stuff,“ ”The Sixth Sense,“ and so on. Instead, we get titles like… (see under the fold)“Shaun of the Dead,” “Dude, Where’s My Car?” “Heat,” “Clerks,” and “There Will Be Blood.” Not that these are all bad movies, but seriously, they rate up there in quality or notoriety with “Gone with the Wind,” “A Clockwork Orange,” “Psycho,” “Jurassic Park,” and “Back to the Future”?
