City Scroll Movie Magic NEW Screensaver

Wed May 02, 2018 11:43 pm

There is a new screen saver called "City Scroll: Movie Magic"

And uh....What?! It's AMAZING.

We spent 10 minutes watching it and trying to name everything on the screensaver. The colors are rich, vibrant and fun. I love all the fantastic nods to films, I am not even sure I could name all of them.

The design work is beautiful and I am wondering if the person who did this one did the Winter screensaver from last year? 

Keep these coming on a regular basis please!!! Have the person(s) that created this screensaver do some themes for us!!!!! Phenomenal job.

I agree! I was actually trying to find a breakdown of the references, but no luck so far.

What Roku models are you two using? On my Roku 3 and Express the City Scroll:Movie Magic screensaver is just the bouncing Roku logo.

I assume this is part of the 8.10 update?  Still waiting for my Roku to update. :(

I found this list on reddit... we still can't figure out the 3 "aliens" with glowing eyes, though... Looks like Eve from Wall-E, but not quite.

It's been fun trying to find references, though. Some we missed (Death Star and Smaug) because our TV isn't big enough.

My guess for that one is Rear Window, with James Stewart and Grace Kelly.

The 'sea monster' is the cutout monster from the Monsters, Inc. title sequence. 
The 'dragon' above Mt. Doom appears to be a nazgul to me.
I think the diner is the famous diner that's used in every movie that needs a retro diner, like The Diner, Pulp Fiction, etc, etc. ;)
The blimp is from Around the World in 80 Days.
The monster in the trash can would obviously be Oscar the Grouch.

The one that's driving me utterly nuts is the building two over from Stark/Avengers tower...maybe I'll put in Blade Runner this weekend to see if its from there.
