Time for another quiz. I’ve always had a soft spot for the whole teenager/adolescence genre, and unlike last time’s 2018 quiz, have seen all of the ones listed below. Do you have a favourite? How many can you get? As always feel free to share your score, offer any thoughts about the genre or recommend any others that you like.
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?
There simply wasn’t enough space to cover so many great rites of passage films. It is a genre in which Hollywood really seems to revel in. See if you can work out which six films the pictures represent. Feel free to give yourself a score out of six or 18, if you want to add your scores from Parts 1 and 2.
This is dreadfully sad to write. I’ve read a lot of wonderful tributes to a man who could do pretty much anything on screen. From as long as I can remember watching films seriously, Robin Williams was always there. Whether he was playing an inspirational professor, a devoted father posing as a British nanny, a rebellious DJ or two very different Presidents of the USA, Williams could bring anybody to life with warmth, energy and compassion. And that’s without saying how funny he was, or how his range even extended to playing sinister and creepy villains. The world will miss both his outrageous acting talent and wonderful nature off it.
Below are 12 different Robin Williams images from different films that capture his incredible ability. I wanted this tribute to be all in one post and Limiting it to six just wasn’t an option. Unlike with the other film quizzes in this set, there are no difficult photographs. It is really more about looking back on a wonderful career.
