I haven't seen Twister for years but I'm pretty sure the picture is wrong. Good quiz.
Jul 25th, 2010 at 16:37 GMT
@Brick_Hithouse- give yourself points for finding this quiz. It hadn't been released publicly yet, because the picture file was still being fixed (for the very reason you mentioned). Good catch!
Jul 26th, 2010 at 04:25 GMT
Is five minutes too much time? (Oh, and don't vote Brick-Hithouse's comment down- when he made it the Twister picture WAS wrong.)
Jul 26th, 2010 at 04:39 GMT
i really liked the quiz, but i think sorcerer might be misspelled. couldn't get 'sorcerer's stone' to register
Jul 26th, 2010 at 04:43 GMT
Fixed- I just had to conjure up an 'e'. Thanks, ethan1.

Am I the only one to confuse the ending of Planet of the Apes with Spaceballs? lol

Philosophers Stone? WTF
Jul 26th, 2010 at 04:53 GMT
It was called the Philosopher's Stone in the UK and Sorcerer's stone in the US
Jul 26th, 2010 at 04:58 GMT
In fact, Philosopher's Stone is Rowling's original title for the book and the title it was published under almost everywhere but the United States. Scholastic books, which purchased the U.S. publishing rights reportedly didn't think that American kids would buy a book with the word "philosopher" in the title (sorry, Aristotle) and so changed it.

This is a great quiz .... some truly iconic (and very clear) pictures. The only one I wasn't too sure about was "A League of Their Own" ... I could have sworn that ended with everyone in the Baseball Hall of Fame building?
Jul 26th, 2010 at 05:33 GMT
@TeganX7- I did the screen capture on all these myself- it fades into credits just a second after that on-diamond argument.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 05:34 GMT
A couple of the pictures are hard to make out at the small frame sizes, but that's only like 2 of them. Other than that, really good quiz.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 06:17 GMT
I'm disappointed that Shawshank didn't make this quiz. I love the ending scene to that movie.
Although it's probably good that you didn't use it, as people would complain about how it is used in every single movie quiz.
But, this is another great quiz, Hejman.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 06:20 GMT
@sunshine423- thanks for the kind words. There were several other movies that ended with pictures that were hard to see at this size that I left out because of that. The two included here (Twister and Jurassic Park) I left in on purpose because they are also the two that have credits over the final shot. It's my hope that people will squint at the picture and then say, "Hmm... Jan de Bont. What films did he make? Speed? No, there's no bus in this picture. Oh! Twister!" or "Well, Michael Crichton wrote screenplays based on his books, what books of his got made into movies?" Since this obviously isn't Congo or Sphere or Rising Sun, they'll stumble on Jurassic Park. It was my way of trying to make this more than just about picture recognition, but also (at least on those two) about broader movie knowledge too.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 06:21 GMT
Thanks, enough- and now that you've mentioned Shawshank, I would LOVE to hear other people's thoughts about movies for a sequel because I'd love to do one.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 10:29 GMT
Good quiz, nominated.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 11:04 GMT
@Hejman: Jaw-dropping as usual. I assume you got admin assistance with the formatting? Or is there some new option I'm not familiar with?
Jul 26th, 2010 at 12:12 GMT
Thanks, MichaelB76. @rockgolf- You're the Sporcle game creation expert- I don't think there's anything that you're not familiar with. Since you're in Canada, would that be a Moose Jaw that dropped? (Wow, that was a groaner- my apologies to Canadians everywhere.)
Jul 26th, 2010 at 12:57 GMT
Great quiz, well done! @rockgolf: I think he formatted the picture this way to make it easier for the admins to publish it once it gets published. Sneaky...
Jul 26th, 2010 at 14:59 GMT
Very good quiz. My only complaint is that the small size of the pictures made me have to pull the computer screen to my face. That said, it looks very nice from a formatting perspective
Jul 26th, 2010 at 16:40 GMT
@TeganX7, during the credits of League, the (older) women are playing a ball game, perhaps at the field in Cooperstown.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 18:21 GMT
Fantastic quiz. I'm kicking myself for missing MP.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 18:36 GMT
Thanks, RC_Cola. It's always fascinating to watch the results. I assumed that Ghostbusters would be easy but thought that quiz takers under age 30 or so might have trouble with Planet of the Apes. Apparently not. I also thought Jurassic Park might be harder and Twister easier. I am most surprised, though, at the low percentage getting Harry Potter. With the Hogwarts Express, Hagrid and Hogwarts itself in that shot, I thought that one would be easier than it's been. Always a challenge to try to keep my personal biases out of the quiz making process.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 19:04 GMT
very good quiz, I liked most choices except for Twister - it's very difficult to see anything in the background

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO UPLOAD PHOTOS FOR A SPORCLE QUIZ?
Jul 26th, 2010 at 19:56 GMT
@Kleinman44- there are instructions in the quiz creation f.a.q. You can find them here: http://www.sporcle.com/faq_create.php. If you're still having issues, feel free to email me, my address in is my Sporcle profile.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 20:03 GMT
Stellar quiz (as usual), Hejman. Great variety, great images... great great great. I expect nothing less from you- you've never given me a reason to!
I particularly loved seeing "ALoTO" up there. It's not an iconic image- it's just random and fun, and I was happy when I knew it right away.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 20:06 GMT
...But wait, how did less than half of everyone get the second image on the bottom row?! Seriously, people? That's one of the most well-known ending images in film history! It's a classic!
Don't you forget about me...
Jul 26th, 2010 at 20:07 GMT
@Hejman: 12 Angry Men would be a good one for a sequel. The scene where the last juror is walking down the stairs is pretty classic. Psycho, the scene where they are lifting the car out of the swamp, would be good, too.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 20:37 GMT
@Hejman: That FAQ you linked to explicitly says the user creation tools don't support the kind of image quiz where the answers are directly below each image. So, I'm with rockgolf - how did you format the quiz like this? Is there some exploit now that allows the use of HTML within the answer boxes?
Jul 26th, 2010 at 21:05 GMT
@Gjarble- rockgolf was right- this kind of display requires intervention on the part of Sporcle. Generally, I upload a picture to a tinypic.com account and then use the embed code. If Sporcle is kind enough to want to publish it, they've contacted me about using Photoshop to make the conversion to the format you see here. In this case, through a combination of other events it happened to get done before the quiz went live, but that's definitely the exception not the rule.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 21:09 GMT
@Kicking222 - I agree on the Judd Nelson photo you mention- but what about the one above it with all the crates? In my mind, that's just as well-known a film ending, but perhaps I'm dating myself. And thanks, Ben, for making this an editor's pick!
Jul 26th, 2010 at 21:12 GMT
@Hejman Thank you very much! play my quiz then http://www.sporcle.com/games/Kleinman44/90smoviequiz
Jul 26th, 2010 at 21:32 GMT
I knew Jurassic Park immediately because the font, and well, the fact that it was Michael Crichton. For A League of their own, I looked at it, said, hmm, there's no way that's A League of their own, and then didn't bother typing to see. Stupid me. Great Quiz.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 23:34 GMT
Back to the Future would be a good one for a sequel I believe
Jul 26th, 2010 at 23:41 GMT
Excellent suggestion, Tom007- as I recall, the first one ends with the DeLorean hovering over the street and flying off. Definitely a good one.
Jul 26th, 2010 at 23:53 GMT
WHY DID I MISS INDEPENDENCE DAY?!?!?
Jul 27th, 2010 at 00:32 GMT
I'd like to see a sequel.
Jul 27th, 2010 at 00:50 GMT
You accept just Lord of the Rings for the Return of the King but not just Harry Potter for the Philosopher's Stone. Not a huge deal, but when I got LotR right away the inconsistency of typing Harry Potter and having nothing happen made me think I was on the wrong track. Great selection of movies though! :)
Jul 27th, 2010 at 01:19 GMT
@jennyemelie- I actually did that on purpose. The Lord of the Rings was written by Tolkien as a single story and broken into three books by the publisher. In fact, Tolkien himself objected to the title "The Return of the King" fearing that it gave the story away. (If the book had to be broken up, he wanted to call the third volume "The War of the Ring.") The Harry Potter series, on the other hand, was conceived, written and converted to film as a series of stories, as J.K. Rowling intended. As such, the quiz accepts "The Lord of the Rings" as that's the title of the entire work but not "Harry Potter" as that's the title of none of the individual works or movies but just the lead character's name. ('Return of the King' by itself is also accepted.) I realize I'm combining literary and movie issues, but that was the reasoning behind it.
