Only for real movie buffs !

Recommended Posts

It’s a bit quiet in the English room so I thought to enliven the mood a little by providing some trivia fun.

If enough people will participate then I will try each day (I do have a job, you know) to present a series of 5 questions and the first Psycho to obtain a perfect score will earn mad respect from the rest of us.

Other members are of course more than welcome to do the same.

 

so here goes

 

1. What was the last movie to win the five major categories at the Oscars (best actor & actress in a leading role, best director, best film and best adapted screenplay)?

 

2. Who was the first person to portray James Bond on screen?

 

3. What was Kubrick’s second to last movie?

 

4. What is the movie currently topping the British film institute’s poll of greatest films of all time?

 

5. Who was the filmmaker inspired by Eisenstein’s ‘Odessa steps’ for his 1987 gangster epic?

 

Let the contest begin!

Sorry Ann, but after revising your answers your score is actually 0. The Untouchables was indeed the correct movie but I asked for the name of the filmmaker.

Ok, so no one?

 

The correct answers are:

 

1. The Silence Of The Lambs

2. Barry Nelson

3. Full Metal Jacket

4. Vertigo

5. Brian De Palma

 

Some questions were admittedly trickier than others (especially #2 and perhaps #5) and required a wider knowledge of film in general. It might attract more participants if I post several trivias dedicated to specific genres or filmmakers.

 

Coming soon...

hmm.. as a true Bond lover i would have honestly known that answer as he did the original Casino Royale ... I would have had to guess on Kubricks movie and to be honest i dont think i would have came to say Full Metal Jacket.  The rest of the questions i would not have even been able to answer so since i did not know 3 of the 5 i would have had to google giving me also a score of 0 ... 😄

Just for you I will make a special Quiz to  REALLY test your knowledge of 007.

Be warned, as I will not hold back (just so you know I can practically recite Goldfinger by heart, so you know I mean business).

 

Cheers
