Hey Cinephiles - A New Mixed Question Movie Quiz

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.

The questions are a mix of regular questions, true or false questions, and multiple choice questions.  That should make it easier to guess the right answer. When I was teaching, I told my students to never leave a blank answer for one of those questions, because even if you guess on a true/false one, you have a 50% chance of being right and on a multiple choice a 25% chance of being right. I never subtracted for wrong answers.  However, for balance, the movies are not only more recent fairly popular movies, but some popular classics as well.  To make it a worthwhile challenge, some of the questions may be more difficult.

Please remember that I am on the other side of the world (of most of you) so I could be asleep when you send your answers, so be patient - I will get to your PN as soon as I can.

Either actual names of actors, or their screen names in the movies are acceptable. These are supposed to be a test of your attention to details and memory with respect to the movies, and using an internet site to find your answers is cheating, and no test of your movie knowledge.  I've posted questions that are not easily answered by searching the internet anyway.  Please number your answers with the same numbers as the questions. Now that we've made that clear, here are the questions. Now, give it a try......

1.   How old was the little girl to whom Ulrich von Lichtenstein / William Thatcher (Heath Ledger) told the "secret" that he was born in Cheapside, in the movie A Knight's Tale?  Choose one:  (a) 8 1/2,  (b) 9,  (c) 9 1/2,  (d) 10.

 

 2   In that movie, A Knight’s Tale, what colour tunic did Ulrich / William wear to the ball?   Choose one: (a) blue,  (b) green,    (c) brown,  (d) grey

 

3.   Here is a question for those who pay attention to minute details.  In the same movie, A Knight's Tale, Kate the blacksmith stamps her symbol on the new armour she made for Ulrich/  What present company uses that same symbol on its wares?

 

4.   In the movie Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, Molotov cocktails were thrown at the police station.  True or False?

 

5.   In the movie The Natural, the New York Knights had two runners on base when Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) hit the home run that knocked out the stadium lights.  True or False?

 

6.   In the 2017 movie Wonder Woman, what are the two weapons used by Diana (Gal Gadot)?  Both must be identified.

 

7.   In the 2013 movie Labor Day, an escaped convict, Frank (Josh Brolin), shows Adele's (Kate Winslet's) son how to make a deep dish fruit pie.  What fruit did he use?  Choose one:   (a) apples,  (b) peaches,  (c) pears,  (d) apricots.

 

8.   What did John Milton (the devil played by Al Pacino) say his favourite sin was in the 1997 movie The Devil’s Advocate?

 

9.   In the movie Danny Collins (2015), the stubborn hotel manager Mary Sinclair (Annette Bening) eventually gives in and has dinner with Danny Collins (Al Pacino). True or False?

 

10.  How many regular paying passengers were on the airplane that Captain Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) landed in the Hudson River, in the 2016 movie Sully?  Choose one: (a) 145,  (b) 150,  (c) 155,  (d) 160.

 

11.  In the movie Lawrence of Arabia, what did Lawrence have to do to prevent a tribal war?

 

12.  In the movie Fargo, how was one of the criminals disposing of a body?

 

13.  At the end of the movie Trading Places, while on a tropical beach, a waiter indicates that cracked crab and lobster are the choices for dinner.  What did they decide to eat?  Choose one:  (a) lobster,  (b) cracked crab,  (c) something else,  (d) both lobster and cracked crab.

15.  David Basner (Tom Hanks) shows that he is an excellent golfer in the movie Nothing in Common (1986).  True or False?

 

16.  What colour did Superman (Christopher Reeves) tell Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) her underwear was in the 1978 Superman movie.  Choose one:  (a) pink,  (b) red,  (c) black,  (d) white.

 

17.  In the 1990 movie Dances With Wolves, Stands With A Fist (Mary McDonnell) calls Wind in His Hair (Rodney A. Grant) a “holy man”.  True or False?

 

18.  What was the make and model of Mia Thermopolis’s (Anne Hathaway’s) car in the 2001 movie The Princess Diaries?

Give it a try, cause I don't think I'll be doing another quiz for a while.  It took me ages to prepare this one. 

REMEMBER, DON'T POST YOUR ANSWERS AS A COMMENT HERE !!!  SEND ME A PRIVATE NOTE.

4.2.2  author  Buzz of the Orient  replied to  Paula Bartholomew @4.2    2 weeks ago

This was the question:

12.  In the classic 1942 movie Casablanca, Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) says to Sam (Dooley Wilson) “Play it again, Sam.” True or False?

The question did not specifically ask who said it.  The quotation was what was false.  Your reply, indicating that that statement was false, and therefore was never said, gave away the answer, which of course had to be False. 

I did not flag your comment, so the fact that it was deleted with advice to you during the very time I was typing my comment to you indicates that I am not the only person who realized you gave away the answer. 

Sorry you felt you had to slap me in the face by quitting the group over this, but I wish you well.

It took me a long time to prepare this quiz - it's getting harder for each one.  I spend a lot of time, because although I come up with the questions from what I see in the movies I watch, I then research to make sure that the answers are not easily located by checking out the movie sites on the web in order that the quiz will be a test of the details that one sees when they actually watch the movies.  However, because it's getting harder to prepare the quizzes, and there is so little interest in them, I don't know if or when I will bother to do it again.  I'll leave this one open for a few more days and then post the answers and the winners.

I understand your frustration. It seems as if the majority of people on this board are more interested in arguing their side and scoring points than actually discussing issues and having fun.  While I will miss your quiz I can definitely understand.  It took me several days to get to answering this due to work and other issues.  glad I got so many right...

6.2  JohnRussell  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @6    2 weeks ago

Buzz the questions are too obscure and particular. I have mentioned this to you a couple times before but you didnt believe me. 

People don't watch movies paying attention to what color sweater some character was wearing unless it is a major part of the plot.  We know what Indiana Jones was afraid of because it was a running joke in the movie. 

18.  What was the make and model of Mia Thermopolis’s (Anne Hathaway’s) car in the 2001 movie The Princess Diaries?

I saw the movie 20 years ago or whenever it came out, and maybe the next day I could have told you what kind of car she had, but there is no chance in hell 20 years later. Many of your questions have been like that. 

 
 
 
Snuffy
6.2.1  Snuffy  replied to  JohnRussell @6.2    2 weeks ago

I thought his quiz's have been damn good.  They have gotten easier, his earlier ones were tougher.  To each their own,  your line about what color sweater, is that in reference to question #2?  IMO that was a major plot line in the movie.  And in reference to the car in the Princess diaries, I even remember the color of the car.  

I hope Buzz continues with these but if it ends I can sure understand why.

6.2.2  author  Buzz of the Orient  replied to  JohnRussell @6.2    2 weeks ago

John, I have tried to make the quizzes easier with True/False and multiple choice questions.  I also throw in easy questions like the Indiana Jones one.  However, if it isn't a challenge it's just a waste of time.  I have had scores out of 20 from a few different people of 14, 16 and even 19 out of 20.  And many who do not do well still think the quizzes are fun and don't want me to stop.

The car was powder blue, and I wonder if it is the exact same car the studio used for Sam Worthington's (Hillary Duff's) car in A Cinderella Story.

Another movie I saw 20 years ago.

I said with that question that this one could be answered only by persons who were attentive to minute details because it was a tough question - a real challenge, and Snufffy answered it correctly.

Please don't get discouraged.

We need more stuff that takes our minds off all the other things going on. Remember that some of us are older and have limited attention spans - that's why I mainly watch YouTube.

Maybe shorter quizzes would be easier - I'll give you a first question.

What was the movie where the main female protagonist shouted "As God is my witness, I'll never be with out toilet paper again"?

I'm sorry I could only answer 2 of the questions so I won't bother to PM you. Still I must ask about number 6 and Wonder Woman's two weapons?

Seriously, she named them?

She didn't name them but they were named.  In the comics she had more weapons and they also had names.  Stan Lee liked his details.  William Marston created Wonder Woman,  but Stan "re-imagined" her along with several other Marvel heros for DC Comics.

8.2  author  Buzz of the Orient  replied to  Adam_Selene @8    2 weeks ago

Adam, as I said in the opening instructions, you can guess the answers and in the case of the True/False questions you have a 50% chance of being right, and for the multiple choice - 25% chance.  I don''t subtract for wrong answers.   And as I've said, even those who do not do well are good sports and think the quizzes are fun anyway.  A couple of members have already posted when they only got around 4 correct, but they enjoyed the exercise. 

Wonder Woman may not have named her weapons, but she used them and anyone watching the movie could see what they were. 

As for the question you asked, I never saw a movie with that quotation, but I don't ask quotation questions because the answer can often be found on the internet, same with screen shots.  If fact I ALWAYS indicate the movie the question is about.  

What are your two answers and your guesses on the others - send me a PN.

I did the quiz just now, then went to your answers, got nine right, five I knew four were guessing.

The part about a multiple choice (4) that you have a 25% chance of being right made me think of what happened during a test in high school.  There were 50 questions and four choices, if you guessed "A" for all answers you would have gotten a 25% score (the test was actually set up that way) the lowest scoring student got a score of 0, which means they were actually trying to solve the problems and got the answer wrong 50 times, not just guessing.

To be fully accurate,  green was the color of his tent and that was the only spare fabric they had.  It was quite funny watching them describe his tunic for the upcoming dance while keeping the lady's maid from turning to face the tent.
