Movie Rebuses

Earlier this year I created 100 Movie Rebus puzzles which I then used in my recently hosted Fifth Puzzle Party.

I thought readers of LOGOLOG my like to try to solve as many as possible (see how many of the 100 movie titles you can guess from the clues).

I know that this might be a drag for you, but pleeease explain a couple for me:

32. Rosemary's baby

90. kill bill

I'd appreciate it!!

P.S. Do you have any more rebuses? I really liked this one.

The Claude... :D

Posted by: claude


Those are two of the hardest ones...

32. "Jesus" ("Mary's baby") is the entry in the "Rows" of a spreadsheet) == "Rows, Mary's Baby"

90. KILL BILL is insanely obscure:

"In" VOICE, 4 Murders... an invoice for murders would be a "Kill Bill"

[groan... I know... it's silly]

it's not silly, it's fun!!

thanks!
