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 entitledForeign 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.
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?
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.
I’m feeling better so I thought why not another feel good quiz? You all did so well last time that you all deserve it too. How will you fare with these six films? The films below are in order as ever, with the answers below. I’m always interested in how you do.
With the release of the Yves Saint Laurent film today of the genius designing talent, I just had to do a French quiz celebrating some of the great French films (and remind you to click here for biographical quizzes). Are you more magnifique or mauvais? Find out how much of a Francophile you are by working out the six films below.
