Brilliant. Love the way you worded some of the clues... Very amusing.
May 21st, 2012 at 18:34 GMT
I wish I could play this quiz; but I do not want to spoil any movies I haven't seen.
May 21st, 2012 at 22:42 GMT
Is that supposed to be the twist at the end of American Psycho? I thought they were covering it up, cleaning up Bateman's mess b/c they wouldn't be able to rent the place if there was a murder there. I haven't seen it in awhile, but this seemed to be the implication to me when I saw it.
May 22nd, 2012 at 00:53 GMT
Hey kidhill: let me quote the IMDB FAQ page. ****Did the murders actually happen? This is the most frequently asked question in relation to the film, and the answer remains ambiguous. As with the questions of why Allen's apartment is empty, how did Carnes see Allen in London, and why people ignore Bateman's outbursts, there are two basic theories: 1) the murders are very real and Bateman is simply being ignored when he tries to confess 2) everything happened in his imagination.**** Having watched the movie several times, I believe we are intended to go with answer 2. However, I did qualify it with "there's a very good chance" because it's not necessarily the answer

Loved this quiz! One small thing: The Village is "set" in the 19th century (not the 18th). The child's tombstone at the beginning reads 1897 I think. Nevertheless, five globes and great job.
Jul 23rd, 2012 at 08:45 GMT
Great stuff, this one! If I had just read to the word "Texas" I would have done myself proud. Now I'm going to go do myself proud. In the mirror. While weeping. Sorry, sporcle.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 05:56 GMT
Another good quiz, DP. Always fun to see Dark City show up in a Sporcle quiz.

Thanks LTH. I'm a huge fan of the film

Ah, Vertigo. One of my favorite shocking movie endings.

Ah, man, I was going to watch ALL of these movies for the first time this weekend! Thanks a lot, Sporcle!

I'm not even sure why, but Identity is one of the scariest movies I've ever seen. It creeps me the hell out.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 05:46 GMT
For the first time, I can ignore "(Warning: comments may contain spoilers)"
Aug 9th, 2012 at 07:22 GMT
Sadly, the best film on the list is the least-guessed... Go and see The Third Man!
Comment below threshold:
Aug 9th, 2012 at 07:38 GMT
Identity is not a bad movie by any stretch but the plot is very, very stupid and best not thought about too much. In fact in Adaptation (released a year or two earlier), the stupid brother sells a screenplay that has basically the same plot as Identity, and the terribleness of this screenplay's premise is kind of the joke. Also, didn't Rome go back to being a Republic at the end of Gladiator? The film isn't history, and history has no bearing on what took place in the world of the film. The last we're shown, Maximus is giving the orders. We have no reason to think they weren't followed.

Also, some of these aren't twist endings. The quizmaker seemed either unsure of his premise, or he ran out of twist endings.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 13:02 GMT
The title doesn't say 'twist endings'. It says spoilers, so just what happens in the film, that you wouldn't particularly like to find out.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 15:31 GMT
Kind of hard when you've only seen one of these movies.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 15:44 GMT
@J_Hamron: how is that possible? A lot of these are famous, good, or both.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 16:17 GMT
That was fun! Thanks for coming up with it!

@J_Hamron: Life must be kind of hard if you've only seen one of these movies.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 19:09 GMT
They meet their ending "to" a hail of bullets? That can't be correct. "In" a hail of bullets would probably be better.
Aug 9th, 2012 at 20:16 GMT
That was the very definition of "process of elimination".
Aug 9th, 2012 at 22:46 GMT
These clues were so full of awesome! I laughed at a bunch, learned a few things, and now need to go "investigate" my wife's mysterious murder...really! ciao!
Aug 10th, 2012 at 00:14 GMT
Great quiz but i didn't really think the Reservoir Dogs one was a spoiler... I figured the part about Mr. Orange being a cop would be the spoiler. Still great quiz.
Aug 10th, 2012 at 00:39 GMT
I got all 33 of the movies I'd seen and struck out on the other 12. My deductive reasoning must be awful. Good quiz!
Aug 10th, 2012 at 03:45 GMT
Thanks for all the positive comments guys!
Aug 10th, 2012 at 04:36 GMT
@J_Hamron: None of my business as to where u live or ur age or what ur interests are, tho obviously not film, but I'm curious as to which of these films is the only one that you've ever seen. And then why, with so many classics on this list? Wizard of Oz, Psycho, Citizen Kane, Bonnie and Clyde, Casablanca, Vertigo, Chinatown and prob. several others. Really don't mean to 'pick' on you, but so many are part of cinema history.

The briefcase in Pulp Fiction contains Marcellus Wallace's soul.
Aug 10th, 2012 at 10:23 GMT
Oz was a dream, huh? How do explain the Munchkin under Dororthy's blankets at the end? (It's on the unrated version.)
Aug 10th, 2012 at 13:19 GMT
My roommates saw Pulp Fiction for the first time (seriously!) the other day and were FLOORED when Travolta died. "Wait, was it a dream? There he is at that guy's house drinking coffee!"
Aug 10th, 2012 at 14:34 GMT
Ibarez - the briefcase does not (necessarily) contain Marcellus Wallace's soul. The briefcase is a Macguffin, which contains absolutely nothing except whatever you want it to. The fact that it glows is a reference to Kiss Me Deadly
Aug 10th, 2012 at 16:35 GMT
The Third Man is the least-known one of all those? Seriously?
Aug 11th, 2012 at 01:58 GMT
The only thing I'm thinking about during this quiz is M. Night Shyamalan shouting, "What a twist!"
