Blue

I found one on the this forum, the water jug puzzle from Die hard 3.


There must be some in Batman by the riddler.
And perhaps in Harry potter movies and the lord of the rings.

Can anybody remember some?

I found 4 riddles which were asked by the riddler in Batman Forever. According to the source each riddle had a number in it which spelled out something. But they didn't go in to the matter more.

1. If you look at numbers on my face you won't find 13 anyplace.
2. Tear 1 off and scatch my head, what once was red is black instead.
3. The 8 of us go forth and not back to protect our king from the foes attack.
4. We're 5 little items of an everyday sort, you'll find us all in a tennis court.

I guess there were more riddles since these four letters MAHE make nothing interesting.

I can't believe I can't think of the title but there was a movie that the whole thing was a riddle.

There were only two guys in the whole move. I think one was the husband and the other was the wife's lover.

Maybe Michael Cain was in it.....

"Deathtrap" was the one with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve - another good puzzler!

"Sleuth" had Michael Caine and Lawerence Olivier.

Those two would make a great double feature. I might have to hit the classics section of the movie store.

You are dead right there boomer, they are a pair of classics. I'd watch them tonight if I could get hold of them.

Die Hard 3 also asked the "When I was going to St. Ives" riddle.

Lots of classic riddles in The Hobbit of course (animated).

Damn, there's one at the Gate of Moria, the answer being Elvin for 'friend' but I can't remember the wording.

There's one from the original(ish) Batman (ie Adam West/Burt Ward) but I think it may have been in the TV series rather than the movie.

Three men are in a boat with four cigarettes and nothing else. How do they manage to smoke?


They throw a cigarette overboard and make the boat a cigarette lighter!

Thanks hingehead. I also started think about alice in Wonderland and perhaps even shakespeare plays.


Speak friend and enter.
I found that mellon is elvin for friend.

I'm pretty sure the films 7 and January Man had serial killers who delighted in leaving puzzles for the police. In fact that's a pretty common motif in cop flicks.

There was a pictoral puzzle in a Bob Hope movie (was it Ghost Hunters or Pardon my Ghost?- one was the same plot with Martin & Lewis) where there was a series of what appeared to be marching men etched on a basement wall. it turned out that they were musical notes without the staff bars drawn in, and when played on the nearby organ, the notes opened a secret panel.
