I really liked the quiz. Some suggestions to make it better: Accept guerilla film and other guerilla/guerrilla movie as alternates. (Both spellings are commonly used.) Spoof should be an alternate answer for parody. Screenwriter should be an alternate for writer. For miscast, take cast out of the clue - maybe "has been chosen for." Good job overall.
