I invented (I think though some other people may have thought of it and I nicked the ‘whack’ from Dave Gorman) a game called IMDbWhacking. Here’s how you play: Go to IMDb and search a movie and go to it’s trivia page, from there you have to jump from movie to movie using only links to other movies (or TV Shows or Video Games but not Actors) in the Trivia page only. First two tries I only managed 5. But on my third try…

->- Big Fat Liar ->- Sliders ->- Stand By Me ->- The Shawshank Redemption ->- 2010 ->- 2001: A Space Odyssey ->- The Wizard of Oz ->- Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs ->- Gone with the Wind ->- Star Wars Episode IV ->- Star Wars Episode V ->- Star Wars Episode VI ->- The Godfather ->- The Godfather Part 2 ->- Enemy of the State ->- Independence Day ->- Stargate ->- Godzilla ->- Star Wars Episode I ->- E.T. The Extra Terrestrial ->- Poltergeist ->- Always ->- Aliens ->- The Terminator ->- The Matrix Reloaded ->- The Matrix ->- The Prisoner ->- Danger Man ->- Dr. No ->- Never Say Never Again ->- On Her Majesty’s Secret Service ->- Thunderball ->- You Only Live Twice ->- The Spy Who Loved Me ->- Goldfinger ->- From Russia With Love ->- A View To A Kill ->- The Man With The Golden Gun ->- Octopussy ->- Moonraker ->- Close Encounters of the Third Kind ->- The Shining ->- Raiders of the Lost Ark ->- Citezen Kane ->- The Son of Kong ->- King Kong ->- The King of Kings

That’s a total of 47, I’m sure if you go back to #43 or so you could probably squezze another 10 but I’m tired and want to sleep! Night y’all!
