BEWARE THE RETURN OF THE MOVIE QUIZ - MOVIES RELEASED DURING 2015, 2016 AND 2017 ONLY

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....  

Did anyone miss my movie quizzes?   This time, besides the two image clues, the third clue is that the movie has to be one that was released for the first time during the years 2015, 2016 and 2017, so they can be found on the lists for those years and I do not consider it cheating for you to check those lists, because otherwise this quiz could be too difficult.  Movies released during other years will not be considered correct answers. Those who are not familiar with classic movies but mostly just recent ones should do well. 

As before, in many cases just identifying the images will tell you the title of the movie, but some images may be of an item or scenario that is a primary object or otherwise indicative of the plot or movie name, and you might have to have seen the movie to identify the movie.  One or two could have been included in previous quizzes, but even if so I didn't 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 clues is cheating (except in this case to just check out the lists for the three years). 

TAKE NOTE:  Since it is not impossible for you to find the actual movie names, I will be fairly strict in my scoring, so even if you guess the answer you should check the movie name on the web to make sure it is the full and correct name.  For example, you will lose a half mark if you do not say "The" if the movie name starts with that word, or if you make the title two words when it is only one, for example not "Brave Heart", but "Braveheart" Also, do NOT forget punctuation marks if they are part of the title.  So 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.

Give it a try and NAME THESE MOVIES.

Please number your answers the same as the images.

I've given the movie afficionados enough of a rest so it's time for a new quiz.  For those who are only familiar with more recent movies, this one should be a piece of cake, and I think that with the limited movies to choose from it should be easier.  So let's see how this one goes.  So make sure you read the intro info first, and then 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.

I recognize a few of them right off. Have to think about the others for a few days.

The quiz has been up for 4 days, and only 3 members have tried it.  All got passing grades so it's not that difficult.  It will be closed in 3 more days.

I'm sorry Buzz, but, if you used movies prior to 2000 I might be able to participate.

Oh Raven, notices were sent last week to 12 regular participants. I never expected you to do the quiz of recent movies so please don't apologize.

I've had complaints like "Nobody watches the old classic movies" and you haven't watched recent ones.  I can't win.

Buzz most people dont have your detailed memory of old movies, or maybe new ones too.  I am sure I watched a fair number of movies from 2015-2017, but I am not remotely familiar with all the titles that came out during those years.

Nor am I JR.  And as I said, I saw only half of the movies on this list.  But a lot of the picture cliues are obvious and can match the actual movie titles if one glances throught the annual movie release lists that I encourage be done - it's not cheating.  I don't want the quizzes to be so hard nobody will do them.

LOL.  I gather, Ender, that you don't watch many movies.  I watch them almost every day, although I've only seen half the movies on this list.  Recently they've been playing WW2 movies like The Longest Day, Sink the Bismark, Darkest Hour, Is Paris Burning, etc.

Yeah I am bad about it. I watched a movie called Ready Player One. It has been out for several years.

This time of year though I will watch horror movies.

Ah yes, of course, Hallowe'en is approaching.  If I can get a few more participants for this one I'll consider doing one based on horror movies next.

ATTENTION PARTICIPANTS:   Although 6 have participated, none have been able to identify numbers 1 and 3, so I believe that the clues are not sufficiently relevant to enable an answer.  Therefore I have decided to REPLACE QUESTION NUMBERS 1 and 3   Those who have already submitted their lists may now provide answers for those two replacement questions and increase their score if they are correct.  Anyone who has not yet submitted should check the list for the new numbers 1 and 3.

Three participants have already increased their scores due to my having replaced the two questions.  All of the questions have been answered by someone or other, so there are no impossible questions.  I will leave the quiz open until the weekend is over to give more time for members to do the quiz.

OMG.  What I posted didn't "take".  Another case of the "Disappearing Comment".  I'll ask Sherlock Holmes to investigate, if I can dig up Basil Rathbone.  Here it is again....

The quiz is now closed, and the winners are as follows:  Snuffy did it again, standing in first place, with 17 out of 20.  In second place was Veronica with 16, and Kathleen came in third with 15.  Honourable Mention goes to Perrie with 13.  Once I replaced questions 1 and 3 every question was answered by someone or other so it was not an impossible quiz.  Thanks to all who tried, I'm disappointed by so many who didn't.  Here are the answers:

1.   Midnight Diner (2015) - clock tower image of midnight and famous painting of a diner called "Nighthawks" by Hopper
2.   Beauty and the Beast (2017) - Beautiful woman and a beast
3.   The Girl on the Train (2016) - a girl, and a train.
4.   Atomic Blonde (2017) - an atomic mushroom cloud, and a blonde.
5.   A Ghost Story (2017) - a ghost and a story book
6.   Wind River (2017) - an image of wind blowing, and a river
7.   The Jungle Book (2016) - a jungle, and a book.
8.   Hail, Caesar! (2016) - hail from a storm, and a Caesar cocktail
9.   Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) - a panda bear and the number 3
10.  Gods of Egypt (2016) - Egyptian gods, and Egyptian images
11.  Central Intelligence (2016) - arrows point to centre, and image designating high IQ
12.  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) - a scene of early 19th century gentry, and an image of zombies
13.  The Martian (2015) - Mars, and potatoes (that he grew and ate)
14.  Ant-Man (2015) - an ant and a man
15.  The Devil's Candy (2015) - the Devil, and candy
16.  Passengers (2016) - a robot bartender, and a space ship
17.  Cop Car (2015) - a cop and a car (easy one)
18.  Bone Tomahawk (2015) - a bone and a tomahawk (also easy)
19.  Trumbo (2015) - typing, and Communist symbol (He was a screen-writer, and a Communist). 
20.  Bridge of Spies (2015) - a bridge, and spies (again easy).

With Hallowe'en approaching, the next quiz will be limited to horror movies.

I'm glad that at least a few wanted to have some fun.  I'm sorry that it was only half a dozen who did.
