The app Guess the Movie garnered positively good chatter because the app appeals to the cinematic interests of movie lovers. The idea of a guessing game purely based on a movie’s pin-up or obscure symbolism was received by film buffs fairly well. Whether you’re an obscuritan like me who lives primarily for the knowledge of manic pop culture, or you’re just a closet film critic who wishes to follow the likes of Roger Ebert, having this game of iconomania on your devices is pure win.
