Check This Out: Empire's Cryptic Canvas 50 Movie Painting
Tomorrow is Memorial Day so it's a rather slow news weekend. On top of that, I'm spending the next 36 hours traveling from Cannes to Paris back to Los Angeles since Cannes has wrapped up. So to keep you occupied on this lazy weekend, Empire has launched the Cryptic Canvas, a time-wasting movie game involving a painting that contains 50 movie references. It's a nod to a painting that was put out a few years ago containing rock band names (if anyone knows where I can find that, let me know). You'll get the idea once you take a closer look at the painting, although there are some instructions on the site anyway.
The only clue Empire gives is that the movies hidden in the painting are from the last 20 years. I found a few right off the bat that weren't that hard and are quite obvious, but there are others that I just have no clue about. I'm not going to list all the answers for the sake of allowing a few of you to spend some time actually going through this (without cheating). The game on the site keeps track of how many you have answered correctly and dims out the images that you've already answered. Just head over to Empire right now to check it out. I'm sure within a few days you can check the comments below to find all 50 of the movies.
