BEN AFFLECK & CHARLIZE THERON MOVIE QUIZ

800

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS, ANY MOVIE OR ACTOR NAMES OR EVEN A HINT 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 FIRST AND FOLLOW THE RULES IN ORDER TO GET FULL MARKS FOR YOUR  ANSWERS.  IT IS ALWAYS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM THE LAST QUIZ.  

This time, besides the two image clues, the third clue is and it is REQUIRED that the movie MUST be a movie on one of the 2 lists that are linked following this paragraph, i.e. in which Ben Affleck or Charlize Theron acted.  I have seen 16 of the movies on the quiz, so although some of the movies can be identified from just the images that often just spell out the title, more may require you to either have watched the movies or be familiar with them or do a little research into them because the clues might represent an item, fact, scenario or aspect that will require you to know the story or what the film is about, and in fact a few can be pretty tricky.  A few have been included in previous quizzes, but these are almost all new image clues, and as usual I don't think any of them 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 knowledge of movies, web searching using web programs that identify movies from the clues is cheating.

Ben Affleck List Link -> https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/guide/all-ben-affleck-movies-ranked/#:~:text=All%20Ben%20Affleck%20Movies%20Ranked%201%20Good%20Will,Way%20Back%20%282020%29%2084%25%20%2311%20...%20More%20items

Charlize Theron List Link -> https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/guide/all-charlize-theron-movies-ranked

Note that I never use the same movie more than once in the same quiz, and usually the order of the clues is important.

THE RULES  

I am being fairly lenient in my scoring, and not overly concerned about spelling mistakes, punctuation, capitalizing or leaving out or adding an extraneous "A" or "The", but even if you guess the answer you should check the movie name on the linked lists or web to make sure it is the full and correct name.  For example, and this will be important for all my quizzes, you will lose a half mark if you make the title one word if it is two, or two words when it is only one because that means to me that you are not sure of the title.  So just identifying the images does not necessarily mean that you know the name of the movie.  That is why it is important for you to check your answers with the lists to make sure they are correct.  As well, if you can convince me that my clues are equally as relevant for or better indicative of a movie other than the one I've chosen, provided it is one of the movies in which Ben Affleck or Charlize Theron acted AND is on one of the two lists linked above, I will accept that alternative as a good answer.  In some previous quizzes I did accept alternatives.  Please also send only one answer for each question - I cannot score it if you provide more than one movie per question.  

Please number your answers the same as the questions.

Only for NT members who like to have a little challenge and a little fun, here is a new movie quiz - the movies of Ben Affleck & Charlize Theron.  I thought about using Jennifer Lopez but I've seen only one of her movies so I decided otherwise.  At least Ben Affleck has been fairly popular and many of his movies are well known, so this quiz should be a good one to do.  Please give this one a try, but remember always.... 

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS, ANY MOVIE OR ACTOR NAMES OR EVEN A HINT 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.

The quiz will be closed in about one week, i.e. Wednesday June 7th at about 10 p.m. New York City Time.

As you know, one of the reasons I extended the time from 5 days to a week was to give you a good chance to do the quiz.  I know this one is tougher than the ones I've already posted, but I didn't think that a quiz that was too easy would be enjoyable without at least some challenge.  The scores are not as high as on previous quizzes so you could still qualify for the winners' list even without answering all of the questions.  I suggest also that even if you can't answer a question, don't leave it blank - look at the lists and guess.  I don't subtract score for wrong answers. 

Thanks for the bump - hope it brought the quiz back to the Front (Home) Page.

This quiz is now closed.  I said it would be more challenging, and I guess it was.  However, I must first declare that I was wrong to use an image of Snoop Dog wearing sunglasses as the first clue for number 14.  I had no idea who he was, I just used an internet search for big sunglasses to come up with that clue, and I thought it would be a good one because he was wearing big sunglasses and was black as well as Will Smith who played Hancock.  However, that led not only to confusion but regret since Snoop Dog's reputation, especially concerning antisemitism, is not acceptable.  Nobody got that question right, the only one that was not answered by someone or other.  Had I been told of this problem early, I could have changed the clue and given all who participated a second chance, but I was not made aware of it until yesterday, and that was too late.  So in the circumstance I am allowing a point for number 14 to all who participated, increasing their score accordingly.

Only 6 members participated but all are in the Winner's Circle.  The scores include the extra point although nobody got a perfect score.  In First Place Veronica and Kathleen are tied with 19, while taking second place is Split Personality who scored 17, and Third Place is again a tie with Snuffy and charger 383 sharing a score of 16 each.  Honourable Mention goes to bccrane who got a score of 15.  Hey, when I went to school 75% was honours grade.

I'm not yet sure what the next quiz will be although I've been thinking about the movies of Henry Fonda, but I'll be more careful about the clues from now on.  

For the benefit of those who are afraid of challenge and having fun instead of spouting their divisive political rants, here are the answers.
1.  Head in the Clouds - head in the clouds & vintage portrait camera
2.  The Accountant - a pocket protector & Dog Poker painting
3.  Good Will Hunting - MIT logo & complex math problem
4.  The Devil's Advocate - a devil with his lawyer & the sin of vanity
5.  AEON Flux - dirigible over a city & a woman in a black body suit
6.  Pearl Harbor - a pearl in a shell & WW2 Japanese airplanes
7.  Shakespeare in Love - portrait of Shakespeare & a pair of lovebirds
8.  The Italian Job - a safe full of gold bars & 3 mini Morris cars
9.  School Ties - a football player & a group of private school boys
10. Mad Max: Fury Road - big monster truck & a 1934 Chevy 5 window coupe
11. Argo - a film crew & a thank you Canada sign
12. Armageddon - a group of astronauts & a drill
13. Monster - older woman consoling a younger one & a monster
14. Hancock - big sunglasses & a man jumping high in the air
15. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice - kryptonite & funeral flag
16. Dogma - 2 unhappy looking angels & a loophole
17. The Legend of Bagger Vance - a golfer & the kind of hat Bagger Vance wore
18. Paycheck - checks & a person's personal pocket items
19. Atomic Blond - M16 symbol & Berlin
20. That Thing You Do! - a garage band & the 7 WONDERS of the world

In the meantime, don't blame me for the smoke.

Whatever.  LOL  The clue image was on the Microsoft Bing images page for a 1934 Chevy 5 window coupe so it didn't belong there and I didn't pay attention to the caption.  But they do look somewhat alike, so I don't think anyone who missed answer number 10 would have been misled.  

Actual 1934 Ford 5 window couple, which I used as a clue.

Microsoft Bing answer to the question "What 1934 car was used in Mad Max: Fury Road?"

1934 Chevrolet 5-Window Coupe

While the online guide identifies the car as a Ford 5-Window Deuce Coupe, fans of the "Fury Road" movie and cars state that it's actually a  1934 Chevrolet 5-Window Coupe . This vintage V8 is supercharged, turbo and nitro-boosted, giving it excellent maneuverability and speed.

It is among the vehicles listed that Theron has actually driven in a movie or on a set.

Yeah,  #14.  That one really got me confused because the only link between Snoop Dogg and either of the two actors in the quiz was the Adams Family and Adams Family 2 where Snoop was the voice of Cousin It.  Like everybody else, I focused on his face and completely missed the big sun glasses..  Maybe because almost every picture of him you see him wearing sun glasses to hide those red eyes...   LOL

It was a tougher quiz but I really enjoyed it.  Looking forward to the next one.

I couldn't talk about it until the quiz was closed, but when I went through the list which was meant to be all of Ben Affleck's movies I noticed that The Sum of All Fears, a 2002 movie, was not listed.  Affleck played the major role of Jack Ryan in that movie, and it was a pretty good movie, and in fact I had just watched it (again) the day before.  So I tried to contact Rotten Tomatoes to advise them but they have a form to fill out requiring an email address and phone number which I filled in but they were both unacceptable to their form, and the only way I could contact them was through their press service to tell them of that omission.  Of course I've heard nothing back, and I don't expect that since the article states viewers' votes that they will add that movie because it's too late.  After all, the omission is an embarrassment to them.

Their dealing with it is a lot different from a number of years ago when I wrote to the owner of a Classic Movie web site that they had made an error.  In a description of The Life of Emile Zola the article about the movie they said the eulogy at Zola's funeral was given by Paul Cezanne, Zola's long time friend, but I knew that Anatole France had given the eulogy and checked the real Zola's biography which confirmed it.  Actually, in the movie Paul Cezanne and Anatole France looked similar.  I emailed the Classic Movie site's owner about the error and got back a personal thank you email from him.

I'm toying with the idea of making the next quiz about top rated animated movies.   Any comments about that?

That could be cool but there are  a lot of animated movies made overseas that a lot of people don't watch.  I for one don't care all that much for a lot of Japanese anime because I don't care for the bright flashing that occurs in so many of their movies.  And here in the US a lot of overseas anime is not really promoted to the general public so there is a lot that we just don't even know exists.  Could be a very low scoring quiz.

There are lists of 100 that consist of a lot of movies that have many that have been popular.  I wouldn't try to pick ones that are too esoteric.  Problem is that no list I can use is up to date.

I was AWOL on this one, but I plan on participating next time. Congrats to all!

If the next theme is animated movies, I'm afraid it will be out of my league. I think the last animated movie I saw was Toy Story when my kids were little!

Surely there are animated movies you remember from when you were a little kid.  I have only rarely watched animated movies for almost as long as I can remember, but recently I watch one in which not a word was spoken, and I thought it was fantastic.  Unfortunately it's too recent to have been on any of the lists I could use.

I certainly do remember animated movies from when I was a kid! I especially remember the ones from my children's childhoods, because we watched them more times than I can remember with our kids! 

I look forward to the next quiz and will give it my best try!

Still not sure what I will do - Henry Fonda, Animated, or something else.

I think I'm going to choose "something else".  I'm starting to work on a quiz about the movies of Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock.  Although I've not seen many of the movies acted in by Sandra Bullock, I have seen all the movies on the quiz being prepared acted in by Brad Pitt.
