Return Of The Super Cool Rip Off Contest

As some of you may remember, I posted a little game about 9 months ago known as the Super Cool Rip Off (search the forum - it's true!) For those who don't know or remember, it's very simple. I made an mp3 of famous movie tunes, blended together, and the simple aim was to identify the movie the tune was from, and for a bonus point the composer too. Well, the game is back!

This time it's bigger, longer and harder. There's an additional 6 minutes worth of music in this one, bringing the total length to just over 17 minutes. There's just shy of 30 themes for you to identify, with a new addition - dialogue chunks! There are 5 sections of dialogue, where you need to identify the movie the dialogue is from and if you want, the actor who spoke the line. I won't lie to you, this one is harder than last time - not all the music is obvious, but I guarantee most of you will have seen at least 8 of the movies they're from, and you should all be able to spot at least 3 of the themes. I know a lot of you like movies a lot, so between you you should be able to get them all. Anyway, it might be nice to listen to anyway, even if you don't want to play the game at all

To make it easier to identify each tune, they're numbered - but the dialogue sections aren't. For example, a section could be:

9. Star Wars (John Williams)
--dialogue-- (Indiana Jones)
10. Superman (John Williams)


Download the mp3 here! (15MB) Good Luck!!
