MOVIE LOVERS - A  NEW QUIZ FOR YOU

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.

It would be wise to read this before trying the quiz....

I'm not sure if this quiz will be much easier than the last one - went as far back as the 1930s looking for movies.  These are movies I don't think I've ever used before .  Some are more unusual, some less known ones and some classics.  In many cases, just identifying the images will tell you the title of the movie, but a few images were of an item or scenario that is a primary object or otherwise indicative of the plot, and you might have had to have seen the movie to identify the movie.  However, you should be able to guess some of them using only one of the two clues.  None of the image clues are actual screen shots from the movie films and 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 is cheating anyway.   

TAKE NOTE:  Only movies released up to 2017 will be considered answers, even if the clues are applicable to more recent ones, as I will not have seen those recent movies.  All the clues are specific to movies released before 2018.  You still can score by coming up with a movie that fits the clues, even if I had meant a different one. 

Give it a try and NAME THESE MOVIES.

Please number your answers the same as the images.

You need to be a person who watches movies, Kavika.  And even if you aren't, with some of those you only need to say out loud what the images are, and you have named the movie.  For example, in the quiz I posted on May 4th, the clues for the first question were a bunch of assorted animals in the first image, and a house in the second image.  The movie was "Animal House", in which John Belushi was the star.  You didn't even have to know that there was a movie called Animal House in order to answer the question.

I looked and I think I only, maybe, knew one.  Haha

I thought this was one of the harder ones.

Of course you know I suck with movies anyway...Haha

To do well on my quizzes it is best to at least have a knowledge of movie names over the years, even if you haven't watched the movies.  I have watched at least 15 of the movies on this quiz, some even fairly recently.

Yeah I don't watch that many. When I did I use to watch old movies, like from the thirties and forties. Then I was on this kick about watching foreign films.

There is one foreign film and a Hollywood one from the 1930s on today's quiz.

Although it took 2 days for anyone to try, 2 members have now submitted their answers, and only 3 of the movies have not yet been identified.

This quiz has been up for 5 days and only 3 members have participated, even though I sent PN notices about it to 10 or 11 members who have previously participated in the quizzes.  All three have achieved passing scores at least.  Only 3 of the movies have not been identified so far, so it is NOT an impossible quiz, and in many cases it isn't necessary to have seen the movies, as long as you can identify the images that spell out the titles.

This quiz will be closed in about 18 hours from now, and the winners announced.  Anyone who intends to try it should do it now.  Since only 4 members have participated on this one, it will be a long time before I bother to create and post another.

Since most have lost interest in trying my quizzes, I'll give it a rest.  The winner of this one is Kathleen, with a score of 15 (it rhymes), Snuffy placed second with 14, Charger came in third with 12 and Honourable Mention goes to JohnRussell with 11 - all with better than a mere pass, and nobody else even tried.  Only three questions eluded everyone, numbers 2, 3 and 20.  Numbers 2 and 3 had major actors, and even though it was a low budget low box office teenager film that is obviously relatively unknown, I saw it here, I actually gave everyone the answer to number 20 in my previous quiz and nobody paid attention.  Well, for the forehead slappers, here are the answers:

1.   We Bought a Zoo   -    buying something,  a zoo
2.   The Contract   -   a contract,  handcuffs
3.   War, Inc.   -   a war scene,  and ink.
4.   Tootsie   -   Tootsie rolls,   and a messy red wig
5.   Patch Adams   -   a patch,   and a stethoscope
6.   Twentieth Century   -   Dates designating the 20th century
7.   The Man in the White Suit   -    a man symbol,  and a white suit
8.   The China Syndrome   -   map of China,  and leaking nuclear fluid
9.   Match Point   -   a match,  and a finger pointing
10.  The Ice Storm   -   ice melting,  and a storm scene
11.  Stealing Home   -   a person committing a theft,  and a home
12.  Heaven's Gate   -   an image of heaven,  and a gate
13.  Talk Radio   -   persons talking,  and a radio
14.  Seven Days in May   -   Calender showing 7 days in May,  and the seal of the POTUS
15.  The Lion in Winter   -   a lion,   and a winter scene
16.  Cadillac Man   -   a Cadillac,  and a man.
17.  Good Morning Vietnam   -   morning scene,  and map of Vietnam
18.  One Hour Photo   -   a one-hour gif,  and photos
19.  RV   -   a recreational vehicle (RV),  and sodas
20.  Be Somebody   -   girl delivering pizza,  and a crowd of girls cheering a rock star

Farewell for a while.

Buzz, why dont you try one using Academy Award winners for the movies. If more people knew most of the movies there might be more interest.

Been there, done that, JR.  I've done a lot of quizzes, used Oscar winners, Oscar nominated, Oscar snubbed, and I'm trying to use movies I've not used before.  I can only use movies that either I have seen so I will know and be able to use images of an important item or scenario from the movie as clues, or even if I've not seen it the title is one that I can depict with images.  Images like a stagecoach or an RV are enough just by themselves to identify the movie.  So I've been reaching farther and farther to find movies that I can use.  If the quiz is too easy (like some quizzes from the internet that I used a year or so ago) where everybody gets 100% then where is the challenge?  If the quiz isn't a challenge what's the fun of it?  In the quizzes I've been doing participants have two possibilities to get the right answer - either be familiar with the movie, or be able to construe the two clues into a title. 

However, JR, I will take your advice.  There have been best picture Oscars awarded to at least 150 movies, so I will try to put together a new quiz using only them and see where that goes.  At least that provides parameters within which to seek.  But if I've used them before I will need to come up with different clues, and they may be more difficult to interpret.  For example, don't expect me to do a question with clues like these (even though this movie did NOT win the Oscar):

LOL.  The first best picture Oscar was awarded in 1929, so I guess that means there were 92 best picture Oscars, unless any years were skipped for some reason.  Anyway, I guess it wasn't 150.  I think I was confused by IMBd's list.  I suppose I should be able to come up with 20 out of 92.

WATCH FOR IT.  Thanks to a suggestion by JohnRussell I have prepared a new quiz wherein all the movies to be identified are movies that have been awarded the BEST PICTURE OSCAR. and I will be posting it within the next day or two.  IT WILL BE EASIER, because besides the two image clues for each movie, you will be able to scan the list of 90 Oscar winners because the answer will be one of them - therefore it is a third clue, and all the movies are famous, so there won't be any unknown ones.  I expect that more than one participant should be able to achieve a perfect 100% score.

Ack. You know I am bad with the movies, not having seen a lot, but, I never watch the Oscars...Haha

When I scanned the answers for the last one, I had one right.

Don't worry, Trout.  Didn't you read my last message above?  After the Oscar winner quiz, I intend to do one based on Oscar nominees - gives a lot more possibilities.

The new quiz is now posted.  It's EASY - the only movies are the Best Picture Oscar Winners, and the list of winners is only 90 movies, all famous, so everyone should get a great score.  Give it a shot...

LInk to the new quiz....
