Might sound cheezy, but I should have guessed it. It's all there - with tons of creativity and imagination. Since exact antonyms are impossibe in that example you added a healthy dose of "thinking outside the box".

I just was stuck (as I said) somehow on "polar opposite". I happen to be a language-fanatic (doesn't matter if my English sucks a big hairy one - which seems to be true when I read some posts here, but I take it always as an English lesson, I'm way too old to let pride get in the way of finding the truth - and that's not reverse psychology - or as they used to say: fishing for compliments) and all the philosophy and math that comes with it. BTW: I need to find a way to keep my sentences shorter and less Nolan-esque :lol:

EDIT: BTW: "The Lion King" was wrongly translated into german: "Der König der Löwen". This means "The King of the Lions", but that's wrong, it should have been "Der Löwen-König" but as I mentioned before: a movie title is not supposed to explain or mean anything (Reservoir Dogs anyone?) - it is only there to sell the movie.
The original title refers to the fact that even a lion can be a king. Hence "Lion King" (just like a human king, but in this case a lion). Yeah, language can be very complex..... Oooops, sorry: off topic again. Sorry in all honesty!!!! 8-)


Aaah and the correct answer to the opposite of "The Lion King" is: "Any female living being except a Lioness, without any royal title, speaking the truth" ;-)

Meanwhile, we have two people and a phone booth on a coast. It should be a familiar phone booth.

Please don't get me wrong, but is there any way you can be more vague?

The movie ends with a person at the second location calling the payphone at the first location.

I look everyday. I just rarely know the answer.

Count me in on Gedmud's camp. Many times it's all I can do to kick-start the thread after a guess goes unanswered, a stalled picture goes un-hinted, or a correct guess goes without a new picture being added. We just don't like filling up the board with "Uh...gee...I dunno...looks like a European phone booth to me" when we don't have a clue. Doesn't mean we're not "playing".

I can safely say that I have never seen the movie in question and there is nothing of significance in the screenshot (actor, landmark, spaceship or whatever) that would allow me to "research out" the answer.

Just to add I too frequent this thread pretty regularly, and also to my shame very rarely know the answer.
But anyway, here's one:

Correct! Pretty interesting Brandon (not David) Cronenberg movie. Well worth seeing for its unique visuals alone.

I guess "shortly" is a relative term, Blondie?

Shit, I completely spaced it was my turn. Sorry about that. Glad the game moved on in spite of me.
