Movies as Emoji


#1

Continuing the discussion from Kyle "Paul Atreides" McLachlan explains Dune with a single tweet:

Where Mr. McLachlan has lead, we shall follow—describe a movie or two!

Difficulty: Use no letters, numbers, syllables, or ideographs (except those that appear incidentally within a symbol used for other purposes). And try to use each symbol once at most.

Example:

:princess::skull::mount_fuji::chart:♫:policeman::+1::yin_yang::evergreen_tree::leaves::ocean::european_castle::lips::coffee:️🂫:maple_leaf::dollar::gun::crescent_moon:▨:japanese_ogre:

Twin Peaks (ETA: yeah I know it’s not a movie. Fire Walk With Me?)
