    Can You Figure Out What Movie Each Of These Mathematical Equations Represents?


    Note that one or two of the movies are from before the 1950's, but you should have heard of (and probably watched) half of the ones I have up there.
    [I don't have the answers]

    Edit: I think I have just solved one.

    First one's The Matrix
    Top right is a set of 4 sine curves which means nothing to me. Should it be "sin" (normal abbreviation for sine) but why 4? four sine wave? four sine curve?
    is Fe x Fe Iron Man 2 (not sure why it would be but it has got 2 Iron symbols!)
    Fourth down on the right is something to do with speed/acceleration??
    a+bi - something to with imagination (the "i" is the imaginary number; square root of -1)
    The last one (bottom right) is Euler's identity (top row) and the number 666 is "the number of the beast" but googling that gets me nowhere :-(

    edit - just looked at the website; there are quite a few answers there!

    Signs?

    Could that be "Speed" then?

    Beauty and the Beast?

    My guesses:

    1) The Matrix
    2) Signs
    3) Heat
    4) What's up Doc
    5) Cross of Iron
    6) A man apart
    7) Sin city
    8) ...no idea
    9) Golden Eye
    10) Beauty and the Beast


    Could all be nonsense though

    3 down on right must be another matrix one. Matrix revolution maybe?
