No love for this one? You make me sad.

I've revised the original post to use a larger image within a spoiler.

And here is a hint:

_ _ _ 2 _ _ _

Remember: each position is "1" or "2".

I tried, and I also wanted to make it going.

Bill, do I have to wait 24 hours? ...I guess so. ...Hopefully someone else is more calibrated than I in 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' flicks.
- And I do have both of them on Blu-ray.

Thanks for the heads-up, Mr. G! Pre-order placed. My blu-ray spending has been ridiculous the last quarter of this year

Last watched: The Shout (1978) with Alan Bates, John Hurt, Susannah York, Tim Curry, Jim Broadbent. Directed by Jerzy Skolimowski. Arty horror - recommended!
