Film Quiz: Inspirational Women

After seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Alien Covenant on the same day, I twice saw the trailer for Wonder Woman (and what looks to be the woeful King Arthur: Legend of the Sword). DC will be hoping for success for its empowering heroine to match films within the Marvel Universe. It got me thinking about what other Hollywood females have been inspiring viewers through the decades. How many did you get? Are there others that inspire you?

Film Quiz: Loners

I haven’t done a film quiz for a long time. After such a long gap there were plenty of categoeis I could have chosen, but as my favourite film of the past few years was Nightcrawler (you can read my review here), it seemed right to chose loners as the theme. There are actually more on screen than you might imagine. Some are harmless, some deadly. Some are charming, some tortured. Please feel free to let me know how you do, if you have any favourites or even if there are any you think could have been added to the list.

Film Quizzes – Denzel Washington

Along with Tom Hanks and Leonardo di Caprio (parts 1 and 2), Denzel Washington has long been one of my favourite actors. The two-time Oscar winner has been making quality films since the 1980s and at 62, is as prolific as ever. The New York star will probably lose out to Casey Affleck in the Best Actor nomination at the Academy Awards tonight, but he really was astonishing in Fences. As good a performance as you will see (and kudos to Viola Davis who is incredible too). How many of the films below can you work out?

Film Quizzes: Airports

It’s a tradition here that whenever I meet up with any of my blog readers I dedicate a quiz to them, like I have with Film Grimoire and Archaeology and Abbi Obiston with South Africa. I can now add to that list a new theme with the super wonderful and super friendly Tosha. You won’t find anyone nicer. And it will be hard to find a sweeter voice too. The theme is due to watching one of the films below together and seeing her off at the airport. How many of them can you get?

Film Quizzes #MerylStreep

She may have been described as “overrated” by the 45th President of the USA Donald Trump recently, but Meryl Streep has long been considered one of the greatest actors ever. I haven’t done an actor-themed quiz for a while so thought why not do one for of the most versatile and decorated stars in the industry, who has been nominated 19 times for an Oscar, with 3 wins. How many of the films below do you recognise? Do you have a favourite?

2016 will always be remembered as a politically volatile year and one which included all kinds of tragic deaths in the world of entertainment. George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Alan Rickman, Prince and David Bowie were among the many creative talents that passed far too soon. There were also another new set of films, with superhero blockbusters, friendly animation and comedies among them. How many of the 15 (in no particular order) do you know? Which ones stood out to you? Feel free to compare your score to last year.

Film Quizzes: Life from Other Planets

After seeing the magnificent Arrival film, I was inspired to do a quiz on other films about extra terrestrial forms of life. There really are far more than you might think. Quite a few have these visitors as violent and threatening, but there are some friendly ones in there. How many will you get? If you’ve seen Arrival where would you rank it among these?
