The old adage of truth being stranger than fiction means biographies are scriptworthy goldmines when well-chosen and fully utilised. From the previously unknown, to the famous and to the infamous, they cover all kinds of stories. Will you improve or better your score from Part 1?
1. Lawrence of Arabia (1962) – T E Lawrence
2. The Elephant Man (1980) – Joseph Merrick
3. A Beautiful Mind (2001) – John Nash
4. Into the Wild (2007) – Christopher McCandless
5. Milk (2008) – Harvey Milk
6. Lovelace (2013) – Linda Lovelace
I don’t know if it’s depressing or something I’m happy about as I got the first three no worries but the modern three didn’t even have an inkling. I tend to read – want to books quizzes I’m your girl, movies not so much.
Look out for my literary quotes 🙂 Feel free to suggest some if you like. 3 isn’t a bad score.
Thanks, pop culture shame … sigh. As I said books are my thing, literary classics to YA and everything in between – I’m an equal opportunity reader – oh except for True Crime – ewwww is all I have to say about those books.
What are you on at the moment? Would you recommend it?
Just finished Ben Kane’s book Spartacus – The Gladiator which is the first book in a new series. It is an interesting perspective of a historical figure of whom much has been written. 8/10
I also did a re-read of Firebrand this week which is the story of the Fall of Troy from the perspective of Cassandra. 7/10
Oh Lee Child’s new Jack Reacher book is on my list for the weekend (don’t see the movie whatever you do, it’s a travesty to the character that they had Tom Cruise play him). TBA
Ummm The Battle Axe series by Sara Douglas as well as the Crusader trilogy which follows from there. 8/10
And I pulled out Dorian Gray the other day after a poem I read on a blog here. 9/10
So I think that’s all for the past six days – oh and Stephen Kings Black House. 7.5/10
Should probably mention I can read fast and I read one to two books a day unless I’m in a bad mood and then it’s anything up to 6.
And no I’m not lying and yes I read them properly and can quote from different pages if asked – sorry people tend to think you’re bullshitting when it’s just a quirk of nature and brain synapse that enable me to read that way.
It’s quite a gift. So glad you make full use of it. Thanks for the recommendations 🙂
All but 3 and 5. Should have known three.
It’s probably one of the weakest Best Film winners.
Agreed. Which is probably why I didn’t identify it.
Missed 2, 5 & 6… Although, never saw 6. Loved A Beautiful Mind
Not a bad score 🙂
Oh c’mon, I totally failed. Big fat F!!!!😭😭😭
C+. A comfortable pass 🙂
Got 1, 2, 4, and 6. Feeling pretty good right about now.
Nicely done dude 🙂
missed 5 and 6. Only saw Milk once and never saw Lovelace.
Nicely done Alex!
Good score dude. Half wondering whether to do a third part.
go for it!
I got 5!
Wahoo! I got 100%!
Superb stuff 🙂
2/6. I missed Milk, but I should’ve known that one! Great film.
Maybe one day they will do a film of your life 🙂
HA! That we be the most uneventful film ever. But you’re sweet.
