Weekly Quiz: Round 2 Results

Thanks for playing everyone, even those that didn't submit answers in the comments. 
Answers to last week:  

Screen 01 - Safe Men
Screen 02 - Saving Silverman
Connection - Steve Zahn
 Awesome job by MAYDRICK who comes in 1st with 18 points.
[He runs a quiz of his own--that's why he's really good at this.
He wins the honor of being the champion and putting all others to shame 
without a DVD/bluray prize since he doesn't live in the US.]

There is a three-way tie--
Adam Kuhn
worm@work, and 
Dan Heaton--
for 2nd place with 10 points.

3rd place goes to cinema-fanatic with 7 points.


Used Blurays:  The Social Network (single disc), Fantastic Mr. Fox (single disc/rental exclusive) 

Used DVDs (previously viewed rental editions):  Please Give, Two Lovers, The Darjeeling Limited, There Will Be Blood (single disc), Rachel Getting Married, Whip It, She's Out of My League, Greenberg
Used DVDs (retail editions):  The Kids Are All Right, Safe Men, Lost in Translation, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
New DVDs:  Memento (single disc), Unknown, Yogi Bear, The Wizard of Oz, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Big Lebowski (Collector's Edition) 

To claim or un-claim your prize, please read on (also point totals after the jump) ...

If you are one of those named above and live in the US or Canada, please comment below with your choice of prize (make a Top 5--hopefully your first choices don't overlap; and if they do, I will contact you with a guess-the-number-i-am-thinking-of playoff) as well as include your name and address.  I will get those out to you through the United States Postal Service.  You can also choose to decline a prize in the comments section if you see fit.
No quiz the next few weeks.  Working on other stuff.  Perhaps next month the third round will begin.
Point Totals:

MAYDRICK (la lumiere vient du fond): 18 total

Adam Kuhn (corndog chats): 3 points (10 total)
worm@work (cinema on the road): 10 total
Dan Heaton (public transportation snob): 10 total

cinema-fanatic (  7 total

Marcus (pinnland empire): 5 total
wigwam (wigwam watches): 5 total

Sandy: 3 total
Jos: 3 total

Melissa/oneaprilday (a journal of film): 2 total

Steve Kimes: 0 total

Rules to the Game
  1. Each screenshot is worth 1 point and naming the connection between the two films is an additional 1 point (3 points total).  I will make the connections simple and warn you if it is tricky.  Removed the bonus 4th point that was in play during the first round because there were never seven total contestants to answer correctly.
  2. Submit your answers using the comments; it will be set it to need administrative approval so that other people cannot see your answers.  I will post the top ten point leaders in the following week's screenshot quiz (if you want me to pimp your blog or link to your site/works by your name, just say so in your comment). 
  3. Please use yourself as the only resource to answering the quiz--no Internet searches (honor system); if you really want help, you can look into the soul of the person next to you.
