Film Quizzes: Fictional Writers on Screen

I haven’t created any film quizzes for a while, so it’s definitely time for a new one. I have been reading a lot recently, so the idea of writers on screen seemed an apt choice for the current post. No need to remember the name of the ficitonal writer involved, but can you guess the films below? Feedback as already welcome.

Film Quizzes: Stylish and Iconic Female Outfits

I was on Art Gowns’ latest post and as usual, was blown away by her talent. On the comments section we discussed how I had done many film quizzes, but none as yet on fashion. So remedying that is my latest quiz which celebrates the beauty and originality of female outfits over the decades. As these looks are so timeless, it felt wrong to chronicle them, so the order is random. How many of the films they’re from can you get? Which grabs your attention the most?

Film Quizzes: #StevenSpielberg

After seeing the documentary Spielberg, based on the legendary Ohio director, it got me thinking about the huge array of work Steven Spielberg has directed. In one of my early posts I created a quiz based on films he’s been involved in away from the camera, but he’s certainly earned a more full-scale celebration.  How many do you recognise?

Film Quizzes: Winter Olympics/Summer Olympics

The Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics finishes today, after 16 drama-fuelled days. As with any major sporting event, there have been all stories. Records have been obliterated, heroes have appeared, legends created and dreams fulfilled. But there’s also been all kinds of disappointment on display too as years of hard work fall away in an instant. Inspired by a blog post on Vinnie H, below are 12 films on the Summer and Winter Olympics. Some are based on a true story, others entirely fictional. Can you work them out?

Film Quizzes: Female Directed Films Part 2

As shown in my previous quiz, there have been some seriously talented females behind the camera in charge of all kinds of critical and commercial successes within the last few decades.  One quiz just wasn’t going to be enough, so I’ve added an extra set. And that’s without including the most recent smashes of Lady Bird and Wonder Woman, and films co-directed by women, like Persepolis, Shrek and Frozen. How many of the 15 below will you get?
