Since my last film quiz on con artists, there have been two sad losses in Hollywood, that of the American director Joel Schumacher (1939 – 2020) and of Italian composer Ennio Morricone (1928). Starting off as a costume designer Schumacher started submitting scripts before he broke into Hollywood and having a wide array of successful films. Morricone is most associated with the so-called ‘spaghetti westerns’, but had a hugely varied nd successful St career in film and television.
I was sent this on my phone by a friend who knows how much I love films. I was able to get 25 out of the 30. How many of these 1990s films can you work out? Feel free to put your answers down and I’ll put the answers up later. With thanks to Doodlemoose Designs.
After watching Parasite, it got me thinking about what other con artists film there were. There sure are plenty. Expanding on a quiz I did way back how many of the 12 films below can you work out? Do you have a favourite or any others you like?
There aren’t many actors who had the streak of success of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who had an extraordinary string of hit films in the 1980s and 1990s. And more than a few catchphrases. These days he’s more focused on politics, but he does still makes time for acting. How many of these do you recognise?
After watching Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s most sentimental film by far, it got me wondering about others in the genre. And there were far more than I thought there would be, covering quite the period. How many can you work out?
It was the hottest day of the year here yesterday, so after my recent Songs with Rain post, it was the right time to do something with a far sunnier theme. Have you seen them all? How many could you work out? Feel free to suggest your score, any favourites from the set or others you might think of.
I haven’t done an actor themed post for a while, so after ones including Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise, here is another film quiz for a star of the big screen. Do you have a favourite film of the German-born star from his many famous roles?
The definition of cult movie does vary with different people, but these are 12 I think more than qualify as having a devoted following despite not being the biggest of hits. Do you have a favourite? Have you seen film 10?
A few weeks on from my last quiz, time for another. And a quirky one, inspired by my seeing the final film from this set. Do you have a favourite? As always feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and score.
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.
