Film Quizzes: Great Foreign Films

I wasn’t planning on doing another film quiz soon after my Magic post, but in the comments section from my Teachers quiz an idea for foreign films was suggested by Leí, whose blog I discovered recently. While most of my quizzes focus on Hollywood, I have always had a fondness for films from different cultures, and even did a Blogathon entitled Foreign Favourites. Below are 15 stills from successful films made in different languages and cultures. How many can you work out? There are countless more I could have included, so feel free to mention any you’re especially fond of.

Film Quizzes: Magic

I’ve always been a fan of magic, The powerful to create something using powers that others don’t have for spectacular affect. Though I think Roald Dahl said it best when he explained that those who don’t believe in magic will never see it. How many of the films below can you work out?

Film Quizzes: Teachers

My mother is a teacher so this is a quiz I should have done a long time ago as a tribute to the most patient person I know. The cinema certainly has its own view on the profession. For sure there’s some very inspirational figures in there, plus some types of teachers you wouldn’t get from reading the manuals. Everything from the easily manipulated, to the sinister, badly behaved and lost souls. How many will you get?

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.

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?

2017 sure has passed quickly, hasn’t it? It doesn’t seem so long ago since I was selecting my choices for the 2016 Films Post. Have you been pleased with this year’s standard overall?
