Terrific quiz, well done. I was struggling to think of a Michael Bay film that could have got a fresh rating and didn't even think of the rock. Am kicking myself for that because I caught it on tv just two nights ago. Ah irony.
May 2nd, 2011 at 14:30 GMT
I had a fortunate tendency to get answers for different questions, like guessing "Avatar" for a top-five-IMDb movie. (Or, well, "Shrek 2" for the "has a two in the title" question, which got me "Shrek" for the animated question.)
May 2nd, 2011 at 17:48 GMT
Great quiz! I was a little bummed that "The Two Towers" didn't count for a movie with a '2' in it. If you're only referring to sequels, might be helpful to say, "...is one of the Top 50 highest-grossing movies and is the second film in its series" or something like that. Just a suggestion.
May 2nd, 2011 at 18:54 GMT
Sorry Whatchucare I put "2" in quotation marks because I literally mean the number 2. So, for instance 2012 counts, but The Two Towers does not. @Tahnan--yeah I tried my best not to have any overlap, but it was hard to avoid completely
May 3rd, 2011 at 03:50 GMT
Funny how Bay only has one fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Comment below threshold:

Inglourious Basterds doesn't count for the not primarily in English Best Picture nominee?
May 3rd, 2011 at 07:39 GMT
Damn. Harder than it looked. Great job.
May 3rd, 2011 at 11:18 GMT
Should accept the original titles for the non-english best picture movie. I tried writing La Vite e Bella first and it didn't work :(
May 3rd, 2011 at 11:31 GMT
That's because the non english title is "La Vita E Bella," which I most certainly did accept :)
May 3rd, 2011 at 12:42 GMT
hmm.. I swear I tried all combinations of e's and a's for the first the middle two words
May 3rd, 2011 at 15:32 GMT
@Rudypepper: the entire 3rd section (and other parts scattered throughout the film) of Inglorious Basterds is not in English, but the majority of the film is in English. A good parallel would be Slumdog Millionaire, which is 30% Hindi but therefore also doesn't count as "primarily" a foreign-language film
May 3rd, 2011 at 19:21 GMT
Great Quiz!!!...I struggled with the best picture in the 60s because after reading 'musical'...that's all I could think of...then I kicked myself.
May 4th, 2011 at 03:04 GMT
I accidentally tried thinking of good M. Night Shyamalan movies, thinking that you meant for it to be a tough question.
May 4th, 2011 at 19:14 GMT
In Kindergarten Cop, Arnold says "I'm back!", not "I'll be back" so it shouldn't be an accepted answer.
May 4th, 2011 at 22:41 GMT
Fair enough Tom. Consider it removed

In haste, I accidentally typed "liver let die" twice
May 10th, 2011 at 04:54 GMT
good quiz! I wish there was a way to see all of the answers!
May 10th, 2011 at 04:58 GMT
i tried putting "everything" for the m. night shyamalan movies. it didn't work
May 10th, 2011 at 05:23 GMT
I love "The Rock" so much, never realizing it was directed by Michael Bay. Then my wife and I were watching it the other night and I saw the car chase scene, and suddenly it clicked.
May 10th, 2011 at 06:30 GMT
I tried Inglourious Basterds for the "Best Picture nominee, not primarily in English" clue, but maybe I'm wrong to think that it fits the category, rather than the quiz being wrong. I just remember reading a lot while I watched that one.
May 10th, 2011 at 07:02 GMT
Does Lord of the Rings Two Towers not count as having a 2 in its title?
May 10th, 2011 at 07:33 GMT
Why is Octopussy the first Roger Moore, James Bond film that I thought of?
May 10th, 2011 at 07:57 GMT
@thebombdiggity15: You thought of Octopussy because it is easily the best of the Roger Moore Bonds.
May 10th, 2011 at 08:59 GMT
@will101: The Spy Who Loved Me surely! It's got the hottest Bond girl too
May 10th, 2011 at 10:04 GMT
@Amelia: I put "2" in quotation marks because I literally mean the number 2. So, for instance 2012 counts, but The Two Towers does not

@Lisa: the entire 3rd section (and other parts scattered throughout the film) of Inglorious Basterds is not in English, but the majority of the film is in English.

May 10th, 2011 at 11:01 GMT
I though 'Fresh' meant bad, so I didn't say The Rock- silly me. Good quiz.
May 10th, 2011 at 11:34 GMT
It has been reported that only 30% of Inglourious Basterds is in English. Can this count as a film not predominately in English?
May 10th, 2011 at 11:36 GMT
Really good quiz, and I agree with Molls131 on wanting to see the list of answers
May 10th, 2011 at 12:03 GMT
Interesting quiz. I enjoy movies, but didn't do so hot on this one. It makes you think differently than other movie quizzes on here. Good job.
May 10th, 2011 at 13:12 GMT
I definitely could've used more time, fun quiz, would also love to see all of the answers, looks like I'm taking a trip to imdb next
May 10th, 2011 at 13:52 GMT
The IMDB top five got me. I suppose I should have guessed The Godfather, but I tried Citizen Kane, Gone with the Wind, and Casablanca, and then wondered what the heck their criteria was. I'd have preferred to see the AFI list used.
May 10th, 2011 at 14:16 GMT
Hey Chris. I wanted this to be as much a potpurri as possible and I had already used one AFI list so I decided on IMDB for that one.
May 10th, 2011 at 15:08 GMT
Decent quiz, but the time limit is difficult.
May 10th, 2011 at 15:29 GMT
I don't know any of the answers... :(
May 10th, 2011 at 15:32 GMT
I have no idea why during blitzes I can only come up with the longest answers. Sure Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon works...but so does Z...lol.
May 10th, 2011 at 15:34 GMT
@Nandor...it is a "blitz" quiz...
May 10th, 2011 at 15:36 GMT
Out of perverse curiosity, I typed GIGI and was given credit for the Lerner and Loewe question. Alas, that movie was not an adaptation of a stage musical.
May 10th, 2011 at 16:04 GMT
Yeah, there's absolutely no way the majority of Inglourious Basterds is in English, either by words spoken or time spent. IMDb says it's 30% in English but even that seems like a high estimate.
May 10th, 2011 at 16:23 GMT
@chrisgunter The top five are The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and Pulp Fiction. Gone With The Wind's at 154th, Citizen Kane's at 31st and Casablanca's at 17th. Yeah, Toy Story and Million Dollar Baby are apparently better films than GWTW...:P
