Never heard so much garbage (rubbish) in my life - well, in the last few days at least. I hope when you're in hell, you share a messy dorm with Picasso.

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Yes, life is too short for that.

Ok, without being able to see larger image files that let me see the grain structure, I'm only going on overall look here...

-The first image of the docks is Tri-X
-The hallway/staircase is Neopan400
-The snow is Kentmere
-The alleyway sky is HP5+
These are all very different scenes, different light, etc, I would be more confident if they are all the same image and if the Kentmere were eliminated.
The last image of the alleyway sky almost looks like Plus-X to me...
Few! What a challenge!
Anyway the above is my final answers, some notes...
I've only shot Neopan400 for models really, and some horses once, blown out, but what I mean is, it has a unique response (like Eastman Double-X or Acros100) to skin tones, the "spectral response" I've heard it called, I different, so I'm not sure how it handles buildings.
I have limited experience with HP5 as well, and almost mine with Tri-X
I mostly shoot Acros100 which I love a lot, and PanF+ for modeling. Though when Fuji announces it's price jumps, I stocked up on Acros100 so I haven't bought any PanF+ in a while, when my acros100 runs out I'll probably go back to PanF+, the acros was for night time long exposures in 120 but now that I'm shooting 4x5 I don't need the acros100 in 120 as much so I'll standardize on PanF+ and TMY-2 most likely for models.
The 2nd and 4th images I almost wanted to flip, but HP5+ In the shadows looks like that brick and from what I remember of a background wall of a model, Neopan400 looks more like that stairwell. If blown out, the docks could be Neopan400 and the alleyway could be Tri-X, but as others say, you can make one film look like another if you have a certain style and way of shooting that accomplishes that, but for me, the way I shoot, each film gives a very distinct look that I can see and I choose my films based on that look and I don't believe them to be fully exchangeable given certain light conditions etc.
Again, guy instinct first answers above are my "final answer"
ANYWAY how badly did I do?
