I put up a quiz recently on one word films, ranging from 1927 to 2014. But that wasn’t enough. There really are so many really impressive ones that I just had to add an extra part. Will you do better than last time? Do you have a favourite of the 15 below?
1. Vertigo (1958)
2. Psycho (1960)
3. Badlands (1973)
4. Airplane! (1980)
5. Fargo (1996) – May
6. Swingers (1996) – July
7. Prefontaine (1997)
8. Gladiator (2000)
9. Serendipity (2001)
10. Frost/Nixon (2008)
11. Tangled (2010)
12. Rush (2013)
13. Nightcrawler (2014)
14. Deadpool (2016) – February
15. Arrival (2016) – October
Great quiz, Alex! I got 9.
Good stuff Ann 🙂
wow. some were a bit tricky, but I somehow managed a perfect score Alex! #10 was the trickiest because i knew it but wasn’t sure if that’s really a one word title.
NIce job as always Alex!
It is quirky but Frost/Nixon counts as there’s no space after. I always thought Blade Runner was one word. I only realised when I checked what year it was.
11/15. Of the four I missed, I’ve only seen one, Swingers, and I drew a complete blank.
I have such a soft spot for Swingers. Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau have gone on to good things since.
This was a tough one Alex. I missed Swingers, Prefontaine, Rush, Serendipity and Badlands, but in my defense I haven’t seen them.
Solid score 🙂 Some really good movies if you get the chance to see them. Badlands has one of my favourite film themes too.
Guessed a few but not all.
It was a tough one. But there are some really great films if you get the chance.
#7 stumped me.
It’s not a film that got rave reviews, but I loved it. I really do think it’s heavily underrated. Really gets into the mindset of an athlete, and what was happening at the time he was in.
Uh, that was very hard! I had no idea what were 4, 6, 7, 12…10 and 13 were also problematic for me, but I got them right. The easiest are 1 and 2 – they are also my favourites.
There are some really fantastic films in there. And yes, Vertigo and Psycho are two of Hitchcock’s finest.
10/15. Missed Vertigo, Prefontaine, Serendipity, Badlands and Tangled.
Solid stuff. I really think you’d love Badlands. Tangled was a nice film, but it lacked the visual flair of Frozen or the soundtrack to go with it.
12 out of 15. I missed 9, 12 and 13. My favorite would be a tie between Vertigo and Psycho.
Good score 🙂 Are they your favourite Hitchcock films?
Yes, they are my favorite Hitchcock films. I also love “Rear Window,” North By Northwest” and “Marnie.”
Great choices. It tells you how good a director he was that you can name 5 of his best films, and there are still quite a few great ones left.
Cool stuff. If you were were offered the chance of one of the other ones, which one would you watch first?
I think Vertigo – I’ve heard really good things about it
I got 6. Gladiator was my favourite, but then I haven’t seen them all
It was an epic film.
10/15- quite happy with that. The 5 I didn’t get, I hadn’t seen, so no qualms there.
Nice quiz Alex 🙂
Glad you enjoyed it Richard 😀
” Well stop the world”..I say, this was a favourite quiz of mine. I think you have chosen some very great movies, notably Vertigo, Pyscho and Fargo being firm favourites of mine. Not to forget your introduction to Badlands for me( thank you) which I adore too with it’s beautiful soundtrack.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Some of my favourites films are on there.
7 which is my average
You’re not average 😄
I only managed 6, although I have seen more of them.
There’s far more than you might think. Other I didn’t mention include Cinderella, Gaslight, Logan, Avatar, Titanic, Big, Akira, Zulu, Interstellar, Jumanji, Drive, Clerks, Casino, Magnolia, Aladdin etc
13/15 was my score.
Impressive stuff Vinnie.
I did my best.
Nightcrawler. What a film!! One of my favourites from the decade so far by a long way!
A man of taste! Here’s my (very positive!) review if you were interested https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2015/01/28/reviews-and-other-features-nightcrawler/
Failing at 6! Fun stuff!
Happy you enjoyed it 😄
