BRITISH MOVIE QUIZ    

OIP-C.GB_Xd6yvI_tkOhpf-Y-jCwHaFU?w=190&h=136&c=7&r=0&o=5&pid=1.7

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS IN A COMMENT, OR YOU WILL RUIN THE QUIZ FOR EVERYONE ELSE.   POST THEM IN A PRIVATE NOTE TO ME, BUZZ OF THE ORIENT, AND I WILL REPLY WITH YOUR SCORE AND THE CORRECT ANSWERS.

Don't forget that I am on the other side of the world (of most of you) and I could be asleep when you send your answers, so be patient - I will get to your PN as soon as I can.

PLEASE, PLEASE, READ WHAT IS BELOW IN ORDER TO GET A BETTER SCORE.    I HAVE DECIDED TO BE MUCH MORE LENIENT IN MY SCORING AND HAVE DONE AWAY WITH MANY OF THE RULES. .

This time, besides the two image clues, the third clue is that the movie must be a British movie, not a Hollywood one, and it could be any genre.  None of the movies are TOO old and all of them appear on Best British Movies lists.  Just identifying the clue images of most of the movies should give you a good idea what the movie is, but as always, some clues are of an item or scenario that is a primary object in or otherwise indicative of the plot or movie name, and you will probably have to have seen the movie to identify it.  A few of the questions were included in previous quizzes, but even if so I tried not to use the same image clues, and as usual I don't think any of the image clues are actual screen shots from the movies.  I try to use clues that do not make it easy to do a web search, and since this is a test of your movie memory, web searching using web programs that identify movies from the clues is cheating, but once you think you know the answer I recommend that you check to make sure it is correct.  

THE RULES  

As I have been with the last two quizzes I'm being much more lenient and you will not lose score for not capitalizing or using proper punctuation or adding an extraneous or leaving off a "the" or "A" or punctuation, but I will have to make a decision between your just naming what the clues are and the actual movie name.  Just identifying the images does not necessarily mean that you know the name of the movie. The images should be a CLUE to the ACTUAL name of the movie.  Remakes of original movies with the same name will be acceptable.  If you name movies that I feel the clues identify as well or better than the ones I used, I will accept them as well.  TV programs and TV series such as West Wing are not answers, but I will accept TV movies like QB VII (which is an adaptation of a novel) or some miniseries if they are an adaptation of a novel that is too long for one showing and are spread out, like the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.  

There are some hard ones to guess, and also some very easy ones, so give it a try and NAME THESE MOVIES.

Please number your answers the same as the images.

Here we go again.  This quiz is limited to British movies, most of which I'm sure everyone is familiar with.  Please read the introductory information before answering the questions because it will help to prevent you from making mistakes.  And remember...

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS IN A COMMENT HERE, OR YOU WILL RUIN THE QUIZ FOR EVERYONE ELSE.  POST THEM IN A PRIVATE NOTE TO ME, BUZZ OF THE ORIENT, AND I WILL REPLY WITH YOUR SCORE AND THE CORRECT ANSWERS.

And most important, HAVE FUN DOING THIS.

At this point in time three members have participated and although none of them got a perfect 100% score, drawing from each of their answers all of the 20 movies have been correctly identified, indicating that there are no impossible questions.

4 days and only 6 have submitted answers, none with less than a 50% score, so it appears that there aren't many movie Anglophiles around.  Think of all the great British actors and movies there are - Hollywood isn't the whole movie world.  Guess I do have to send out notices when I post a quiz.

I don't watch movies that much so I'm not too good at movie quizzes, and really have not watched many British movies. After reviewing the clues I have no ideas what movies they represent.

But, I will try to at least get one.

You were pretty good on the last quiz.  As long as you can identify what the clues are in most cased they will be the clues to prompt you to check if they are movie names.

In case one of the reasons that only six members have submitted answers so far is because I didn't send out the usual notifications about this new quiz, I have now done so to all usual participants who have not yet played, and will not close this quiz for another three days to give everyone a chance to think about it and send me a PN with their answers.

Took a little nap after dinner and it turned out to be a two-hour sleep.  LOL.  But here I am, and the quiz is now closed.  The winner, regaining his title is Snuffy with 19 out of 20,  Perrie and Dig (his first time doing a movie quiz) share second place with 18 each, and Nowhere Man came in third with 17.  Honourable Mention goes to Veronica with 16.  Not sure what I will choose to use as the next topic.  Here are the answers to this quiz:

1.  The Day of the Jackal - a jackal & DeGualle (the target)
2.  The Crying Game - a man crying & a game
3.  Billy Elliot - coal miners & a male ballet dancer
4.  The King's Speech - Buckingham Palace & a radio microphone
5.  Four Weddings and a Funeral - 4 brides & a funeral scene

10. Children of Men - picture of children & picture of men
11. Whisky Galore! (a/k/a Tight Little Island) - bottles of whiskey &  seaside town (I loved that movie)
12. Blow-Up - a fashion photography session & a darkroom enlarger
13. The Night of the Generals - a night scene & high ranking WW2 German officers
