Film 7 (2000s)
Film 8 (2000s)
Film 9 (2000s)
Film 10 (2010s)
Film 11 (2010s)
Film 12 (20010s)
1. Paper Moon (1973) – April
2. The Sting (1973) – December

11. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) – December
12. Focus (2015)
Good one Alex! I got Oceans, American Hustle, and Wolf of Wall Street. I did not do very well 😝. I also loved Grifters (1990) and Dirty John (2018)
The 12 has quite the mix. Thanks for the suggestions. Hope you’ve had the chance to see some good films recently.
I got The Sting and Catch me if you can.
Leo and Spileberg is a nice mix. Between them they quite the repertoire.
9/12 – missed 3, 4 and 7.
Nice quiz once again AR!
Not many know Shooting Fish but it is enjoyable for sure. Heartbreakers had a nice premise but was a bit flat. Jennifer Love Hewitt was in the first movie I ever reviewed as a film reviewer for a specialist website, way back when.
I recognized The Sting (I LOVE IT), Ocean’s something, Catch Me If You Can, 21, American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus. Not bad I guess for someone who absolutely sucks when it comes to con artist movies haha
Great post, Alex!
Solid score Sonia. Really glad you liked it. I’ve not seen Focus. Sure looked good from the reviews though.
I have two favourites – The Grifters and David Mamet’s masterful The Spanish Prisoner.
David Mamet certianly does have a way with words. I’ve still not read a more divise play than Oleanna.
I was in a production of Oleanna, waaayyy back in the day!
I bet the audience response was quite something.
I got 8 out of 12, yet I’ve only seen 3. Just Catch Me if You Can, American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street. I don’t know that I’d ever call it my genre, but I’m willing to check out more.
Nice score. I’ve not seen them all but The Sting is definitely worth recommending. 21 and Shooting Fish weren’t perfect but had entertaining stories.
7/12… not my best performance!
Know you’ll ace the next one. Have a great weekend Abbi 🙂
Half… 6 of 12! Great idea for a quiz.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Great scenes but I can’t place them. Enjoyed though!
I’m glad you had fun 😃
