[CALL THE SHOTS] VANITY PLATES!

 

 

 

Welcome to a new recurring column on Daily Grindhouse, where we invite you to identify 10 films, based on 10 screenshots.

 

The theme our first time out is vanity plates: a favorite shorthand for filmmakers to illustrate how a character presents himself.

 

If you can I.D. some of the shots, list them in the comments section. We’ll post the answers in 24 hours.

 

1. MR BIG

2. SO COOL

3. CREEP

4. UZI 4 U

5. BEAT IT

6. MY PRSHE

7. EMC2

8. I BALL

9. GABBA-GABBA-HEY

10. HUNK

 

Okay, remember: you’ve got 24 hours. Get going!
