We can get one more point out of the Jennifer Connelly challenge.

Of those seven images, one is from DVD and the others are from Blu-ray.

When looking at thumbnails, sometimes you can tell but sometimes not. All the clips have been scaled to sub-DVD resolution.

So: which of the clips is from a DVD?

Well, I'm looking at that actor's filmography in the IMDB and I still don't know.

Before this last photo I was going to ask "Did R. Lee Ermey ever play FDR?"

Couldn't be that easy with a Bill Murray reference just prior though. I will get a point someday I can promise you this.

I did good on the music ones but those are MIA.
