moviebarcode is a nifty new Tumblr that consists of a series of “barcodes” made by compressing every frame of a given movie into a single image. These really do give you a feel for the prevalent colors within a given movie (above: The Matrix), and devoted fans may even be able to figure out roughly what is occurring within a given movie during a given band of color: For instance, the seasonal, stylized structure of Hero is very apparent in its barcode. Here’s hoping that guessing movies by their barcodes becomes the new parlor game among film geeks.
