Requires a bit of lateral thinking, but this rebus hides the name of a movie.

  • $\begingroup$ If the answer and the explanation haven’t completely missed the mark, accepting would probably make sense - perhaps with an edit to the answer to fix the details that are not quite there yet. If, however, the existing answer basically missed the point of the puzzle, you might explain how the offered solution path is invalid, or offer a well placed hint to lead to the intended path, or both. In some puzzles, an unintended solution path can in fact be not only valid but an improvement on the intended solution; in others, it may just be a lucky guess. Your call here :) $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jan 19 '18 at 14:32
  • $\begingroup$ You say "a movie" twice; is that your lateral thinking way of saying "two movies"??? $\endgroup$ – Peregrine Rook Jan 19 '18 at 18:57
  • $\begingroup$ Not really, it's a single movie $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Jan 19 '18 at 19:00

Could this movie be:

Stand by Me?. The character is standing next to word "me", which is what gave me the idea first. Also, the colossus represents Shadow of the Colossus, which here is represented by a giant being standing on its legs, which seemed to fit. If you were "Standing on the shoulders of giants", you would, in the context, stand by "me".

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I thought of that but it doesn't explain the faded, slanting "colossus"? $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Dec 22 '17 at 13:55
  • $\begingroup$ It is, but I'd love to know how you came to that conclusion, though $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Dec 22 '17 at 14:49
  • $\begingroup$ @HugoBDesigner I edited my answer to explain so. Maybe that was the wrong way to find it, but that's literally what the pictures reminded me. $\endgroup$ – Isuka Dec 22 '17 at 15:12
  • $\begingroup$ It is very close to the intended logic, congratulations! Not quite there yet, though, it has a couple missing links $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Dec 22 '17 at 15:15
  • $\begingroup$ Does it have to do with the way the word is outlined? $\endgroup$ – Jay Dec 22 '17 at 15:20

My guess is

Super Size Me

Explanation

Well, the picture is an enlarged person, and then there is the "ME" to complete the movie title.

I think it's:

Shadow of the Colossus

Because the purple figure looks like a shadow and there's literally the word "colossus" in the picture. The "ME" refers to the fact that it is based off a video game, which literally puts you inside the action.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You figured part of the solution, but not the whole. Remember, the final answer is the name of a movie ;) $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Dec 22 '17 at 17:08

My guess is:

I am Giant from 2015

Because:

It is an image of a colossus with the label "me".

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ That wasn't the solution I had in mind, but it does fit in quite neatly with all the hints, nice job! $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Dec 22 '17 at 17:10

Updated based on OP Hint + @Laurel answer

I guess it is:

Shadow of the Giant (2005)

Because:

As you can see, this character represents a giant as its shadow suggests: colossus.
And me? I'm that character, which is only a shadow (notice that the character is transparent).

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Close, but not quite! "Me" is not ON the shoulders ;) $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Dec 22 '17 at 17:01
  • $\begingroup$ Btw, if I want to make another guess because previous one is incorrect, is it appropriate to edit previous answer like this? $\endgroup$ – athin Dec 22 '17 at 17:13
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, you can add more text above this answer with headings old or new answer $\endgroup$ – Preet Dec 27 '17 at 1:42

Is it

Reign Over Me

?

Stolen from Laurel and adding a bit of trivia, mostly.

Stand by Me, based on "The Body" by King.

because

The human figure is, literally, standing by the word "me", and is based on (as in, standing on) Colossus. Colossus = King (aka Stephen King, author of "The body").

The movie is

Come Wander With Me (2011)

The rationale:

We are shown a character standing on top of a skewed, drop-shadow of the word "Colossus", which is clearly a reference to Team Ico's video game Shadow of the Colossus. In that game, the player character spends most of his time climbing around on top of Colossi (giant monstrous beasts), so that's presumably who the iconic figure represents. That character is officially named Wander.

In this rebus, we have the character Wander accompanying 'me', presumably traveling over the "colossus" text together. Hence, "Come Wander With Me".

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Though not the answer I was looking for, I find this a much more interesting solution than what I had for the puzzle, great job! You did get one of the parts of the rebus right, though! $\endgroup$ – HugoBDesigner Jan 19 '18 at 12:01
