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.
It’s been another weird and wonderful year of films, full of delights and disappointments, sequels and shockers. Did you have a favourite? What did you think of them overall? Feel free to share your score from the films below. And you’re more than welcome to look at last year’s quiz too.
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’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?
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?
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.
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?
I put up a quiz recently on one word films, ranging from 1927 to 2014. But that wasn’t enough. There really are so many really impressive ones that I just had to add an extra part. Will you do better than last time? Do you have a favourite of the 15 below?
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?
As long as there have been big-screen budgets, there have been big screen flops. And when a film does bomb at the box office, it leads to all kinds of consequences for the studio, cast, crew, the franchise and even the genre itself. How many of the recent films below can you recognise? Any you feel don’t deserve to be on that list?
