Okay, so I ripped off Thriks game. Sue me.

Download the game MP3 here. (http://lucastones.mixnmojo.com/Movie%20Medley.mp3)

Its not exactly the same, of course - that would be silly. No, I decided to flavour my game with the unique taste only offered by movies. Rejoice! I also decided to try and make it as hard as possible - not in the choice of movies (I'm pretty sure most of these movies are pretty popular, and I know people like Scabb and Thrik will be able to get the more obscure ones) but in the way the game is presented. In a nutshell - its lots of movies, and one MP3. I was bored, so I blended them all together, just to make it harder for you. I'm not telling you how many movies there are in the MP3, but its between 20 and 25. And one movie appears twice, just cos I had two different MP3's from it that are both cool. Unfortunately, because I used so many samples, the MP3 is about 10Mb - so 56k'ers will have to sulk.

So.. Kudos to anyone who can guess the movie the track is from, the composer, and any other details. If anyone can get every track, in order with composers, then I guess I better give you some kind of prize.. or something. But I don't think anyone will do quite that well :D

Enjoy (and sorry Thrik, I know its a rip off of your game)

The fourth one is from POTC, isn't it?

The sixth one is the theme from The Neverending Story. I'm pretty sure the one after that is the title theme from Fight Club, by the Dust Brothers. After that is the Gipsy Kings version of "Hotel California" from The Big Lebowski.

And that was all I got. I suck at these.

Hee, the more the merrier. It may be worth editing the original post with what has and hasn't been discovered though.. Anyways.. I've got some different numbers to Alien so I'll put what I have them as in those cases..

2) Pretty sure it's from Matrix Reloaded or Revolutions
3) Donnie Darko
4) Pirates of the Caribbean
9) The Road to El Dorado
10) The Lion King - Be Prepared
11) A Fistful of Dollars
12) The Addams Family - Mamushka
13) The Beauty and the Beast

18) The Lion King - This Land

Just a guess.
