Film Quizzes: One Word Films

I watched Casablanca again recently. It’s obvious why it’s considered one of the definitive classics. It got me thinking what other really awesome one word films there are. Turns out, more than you might realise. How many did you get? Any others you like that aren’t on the list?

Film Quizzes: My Favourite Films Part 1

I’ve done so many film quizzes since this early feature on New York, that I thought I’d continue the bloggerversary theme by putting films that just blew me away when I first saw them. Originally I thought about putting a mix of good and bad films, but I’ll save the shockers for another day. Whether they had me in hysterics, the edge of my seat, in deep thought or close to tears, these films really left an impression when I first saw them. Unsurprisingly I couldn’t fit them all into  one post, so look out for part 2 soon.

The Sporadic Chronicles

I have yet another guest contributor for my Sporadic Scene segment. Today I would like to welcome Alex of Alex Raphael with his scene. Thank you so much Alex!

If you have a scene that you would like featured, drop me a mail at sporadiczoe@hotmail.com with a picture/gif/video of the scene and an explanation as to why (should you want to include it).


I love individual rivalries. It’s one of the big reasons I am such a sports fan. Ali v Frasier, Senna v Prost, Borg v MacEnroe, Magic Johnson v Bird, Coe v Ovett. It’s more unusual to find them in film, even in sporting ones. And even more curiously, one of the most fascinating and absorbing rivalries on film is found in a period drama.
