Who doesn't enjoy a good shuffle challenge? More than a bad one, I mean.

The following eight images are taken from one movie, selected and arranged randomly. (I did emphasize the faces this time).

I think these are pretty easy, except for one image. You'll know which one.

We number them (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8). The challenge: give the correct chronological ordering.

Answer:

Do I get another shot if nobody gets it before 24 hours have elapsed since my first try?

You have to wait 24 hours between your submissions. If no one gets it before then you have a shot.

Damerau-Levenshtein says edit distance = ZERO. That's a match!

I was wrong about the hard one. Everyone had Luke with yellow goggles in position 1, which is correct, but I recall the same setup not only in the battle at the ice planet, but also when going to meet Yoda, leaving Yoda, and arriving at the cloud city. Was he not wearing the same gear those times? Memory fades.

Here is the time index in seconds for each clip:

5 2487
3 3441
6 4527
4 5573
1 5605
7 5762
2 6046
8 6535

And here they are in correct order:

You're right, the shot of Luke with helmet and visor was tricky. I had it in the wrong spot initially, but then changed it before my first submission.

I'm not sure what exactly made me realize my error, but I have two ideas.

The first is that he is in a snow speeder in this shot. When travelling to Dagobah, and when travelling to Cloud City, he is piloting an X-Wing. Not really sure if there is some difference in the cockpit of the two craft, which would have to be visible in the screenshot, that tipped me off.

The second thing (and I think this is really what made me distinguish between this and the other scenes where his is in a cockpit) is Luke's facial expression. When travelling to Dagobah, and later to Cloud City, Luke was not under fire. The only time you see him piloting a craft in a battle situation is on Hoth. In the screenshot, you can definitely see some anxiety on his face. I'm pretty sure that is what gave it away for me.

The trickiest part for me (which I got wrong the first time) was the position of shots 3 & 6, relative to each other. After the rebels leave Hoth, the story flips back and forth between Luke on Dagobah, and the others as they first evade the Empire, and then make their way to Cloud City. I knew that shot 3 was Luke, in Yoda's Hut, and shot 6 was right before the Falcon detaches from the Star Destroyer, but I could not remember which was shown first. I should have realized that shot 6 came later, because it occurs after the escape from the asteroid field, but I did not recall that while working on my initial submission.

I have to say I'm quite surprised (but pleased!) that I got a second shot at it. I was certain that someone was going to spot my error and snag this one!

Thanks, Bill!

It looks like 10:40 to me. I suppose that excludes The 3:10 to Yuma?

I don't know, but a general note on thread policy: double dipping on titles is definitely allowed. We're coming up on two years and I can't remember which movies I've posted myself, much less other people.

All is fair.

That is from Albert Brooks fabulous Defending Your Life, easily one of my favorite films from the 90's. Brooks finest hour IMHO. I will be buying it the second it comes out on Blu-ray

Winner winner.

Love that film. Very underrated. Rip Torn kills me in that movie.
