Alright, it's been a couple of months since I've put up a new IMC, so here we go.

Name the four movies, and also explain what they share or have in common.

Good luck!

Alright, well, either nobody knew the answers, or nobody really cared (probably the latter). So, the 3 movies are Master and Commander, Dead Poets Society and The Truman Show. And the common element is that they were all directed by Peter Weir. He's not a very well known director, but he's had a critically acclaimed career. His films are very character-driven, and emotionally stirring. When I watch his films, I find myself very vested in his characters. And I feel like I'm right along side them, fighting for what they are pursuing. Lately he's not been as active; waiting 5-7 years in between projects. But I hope he continues to make movies. He also directed the films Witness, Fearless and Green Card. He's a four-time Academy Award nominee for Best Director, but has never won. The Truman Show and Dead Poets Society are two of my all-time favorite movies. And I have Peter Weir to thank. See you next time.

So here are the answers to last week's Invisible Movie Challenge. I gave the common theme as a hint on facebook a few days ago, but that didn't help. Or more likely, nobody really cared, so it went unanswered, lol. The common theme is that for each movie, the main star also directed the film. Well, for what it's worth, here are the movies. Starting at the top left & moving clockwise: Braveheart, Buffalo '66, Leatherheads & Do the Right Thing. Braveheart starred & was directed by Mel Gibson, Buffalo '66 by Vincent Gallo, Leatherheads by George Clooney, and Do the Right Thing by Spike Lee. I'm sure most of you have seen Braveheart & Do the Right Thing, if you haven't, I highly recommend you do, they are both amazing. Buffalo '66, on the other hand, I imagine most people haven't see. I loved it, but it's probably not for everybody. I would still recommend you check it out though. Leatherheads...eh, it was okay. Alright, well, until next time.

Alrighty, here's a new one. Name both movies & tell me what they have in common. Try to be somewhat specific. If there are multiple submissions, I'll choose the one that's closest to what I'm looking for. Good luck.

Here's a new Invisible Movie Challenge. Last time, for the first time in the long & illustrious history of the URDD IMC's, I was able to stump everybody. Let's see how this week goes. Identify the four movies & explain what they share or have in common. Good Luck.

For the first time, an Invisible Movie Challenge was not answered. I definitely tried to make it a little harder, but I'm still a bit surprised. Well, if you haven't already gotten them from the completed pictures above, the movies are (from top left & then clockwise): The Shawshank Redemption, The Village, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Hudsucker Proxy. I also made the common link a little bit more difficult. These movies don't share a common actor (at least not one that I know of) and they weren't made by the same director. These four movies all had the same cinematographer, Roger Deakins.

I assume most moviegoers focus on who's starring in movies. While I, like many others, pay more attention to who's directing the movie. But a filmmaking profession that unfortunately gets less attention is cinematographer. Cinematography is simply photographing with a motion picture camera; and is the equivalent to director of photography, whom heads the camera & lighting crews on a movie set. I won't bore you with any further filmmaking yammering, but suffice to say, it's a very crucial piece of the filmmaking pie. Deakins is probably most well known for working on most of the Coen Brothers' movies, but he's also been apart of many other amazing films. Stand in awe of a partial filmography of Roger Deakins...

Revolutionary Road, The Reader*, Doubt, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford*, No Country for Old Men*, Jarhead, The Village, The Ladykillers, House of Sand and Fog, Intolerable Cruelty, A Beautiful Mind, The Man Who Wasn't There*, Thirteen Days, O Brother, Where Art Thou?*, The Hurricane, The Big Lebowski, Kundun*, Fargo*, Dead Man Walking, The Shawshank Redemption*, The Hudsucker Proxy, Barton Fink, Sid and Nancy

* = the 8 movies he was nominated for an Academy Award for (but amazingly/ridiculously, he's never won one)
