I'm really struggling on today's, 23rd February.

I've got "I'm not a xxx xxx xxxxx. I'm THE xxx xxx xxx" and no idea what the film is called. A hint please?

Have you had a go at working out the last word of the title? You've filled some letters in already, and there really aren't many things it could be. You've got three of the five letters, just try different letters at the start and the word should jump out at you.

I got 'wanka' but as much as it amused me, it didn't work.

:lol:

Keep trying. As soon as the first letter's in place you'll be able to see the word, since you'll have nearly all of it. It's fairly well known as well, that last word should be the key to the rest of it unless you live under a rock.

This is the first letter in that last word, LAST RESORT.

That made all the difference.

Also I felt like a massive idiot when I realised what the two letter word in the title was. :facepalm:

Cheers!

As a starting point, look at the first word. There's a pattern of capitalisation there that means it can really only be one type of word, and there's only really one possibility for those first two letters.

If you get those two (and a) you'll have the middle part of a four letter word later in the quote. I think this one's pretty easy if you work out (and have seen) the film, but difficult if you haven't.

2.24 today. One of my better scores.

1.18 ;)

(and it now occurs to me that I've seen basically no films in the last 15 years)

I did today's quickly too - 1.51, first time I've been under 2 minutes. On the opposite end of the scale, I'm up to 51 minutes on February 17th and I'm still stuck:

Is the first word in the quote 'the'? I thought the second three letter word and the title were 'the' but I've been told differently. Any help that would be much appreciated. Also, is this a famous film? I just can't think what it is. This one is driving me mad.

Have you tried to think what "2-abcd" might be? What words can be presented like that in a way that makes sense?

Cheers, but the only thing I can think of is:

2-time, which doesn't seem to make much sense as that leaves hardly any e's in the quote and title. Gah, total love/hate thing with this game!

Got today's (24th Feb) in less than 5 minutes, after struggling for ages yesterday.

This game has me like a beaten wife.

okay

there's an "x" in this quote.... and if you think of what letter usually proceeds x that's a fairly big clue :)

Got it! I already had the "x" but your prompting made my brain click into gear. Thanks for the help. Backlog cleared. I wish i could go back and get older quotes though. Roll on tomorrow :-)

I think the game is more satisfying when I can't get it straight away and get to stretch out the game and check back during the day!

I either get this or I don't. There's no middle ground for me.

I got nothing on today's one (25 Feb). Anyone give us a clue?

I was struggling with it until I got the title, and there's not much I can suggest if you don't, sorry. Maybe someone else who solved it can be of assistance!

The title is obviously key, with the first letters of each word being the same and them being quite short words. I'm not sure how to suggest you look at it though, the three letter word just kind of came to me from nowhere, and then the four letter word was really obvious because even though I haven't seen the film, it's one everyone's likely to have at least heard of.

If you're reeeally struggling, the first letter of the film title is this:

B

Getting that will lead to to the penultimate word in the quote, and getting that should lead to the last word.

Got it, thanks! The letter led to the film title, which led to the first two words and then I was in the clear.

Thank you for that tip, it's still not clicking though so I'm going to have to force myself to move on otherwise I'll be too far behind to catch up. Thanks for the help though!

I was stumped until his clue.

I'll give you another one.

The title of the film is also the title of an unrelated song

If you really need another clue:

The film quote references another film/play

You're talking about a different puzzle, that'll only confuse him more :P

I really wish you could mark down letters you think you've gotten already, it would make things so much easier when you're close to the end!
