Empire Magazine has been throwing quite the birthday party for themselves after turning an impressive 20-years old recently. Along with some great movie stories and information, the magazine has now created The Cryptic Canvas, and they’re inviting you to come on over and see if you have the ultimate movie knowledge it takes to de-crypt the cryptic!
Basically, it’s one giant painting, and on this giant painting are 50 different things that depict a movie title. You look around, then click it on an image in the painting and a box opens where you type in the movie title. The site promises that all films come from the past twenty years to coincide with their 20th anniversary, but be warned, I did find at least one sneaky sneaky one that slipped in. I know your tricks, Dewey.
After figuring out that these weren’t literally translated, I was personally able to get about half deciphered before hitting the proverbial wall. Since then it’s been a slow, pecking process toward the completion of this master movie puzzle.
Thankfully, these fine lads allow you to save your progress and pick it up later in case you come to a point where you can’t feel your face anymore, and your eyes are leaking the movie titles that are flying through your brain like that crazy make-a-wish room in The Matrix.
So, friends, how many can you conquer? Go forth and find out!
