I was hoping for some gimmes like 'Titanic' or 'Casablanca'! Cool quiz as ever Movieguru

'On The Waterfront' contains the word water!

"Waterfront" and "water" are two different words. It's like saying "Horse" and "Horseshoe" are the same thing.

Agreed with WyattsTorch.. I just went through it completely blindly clicking words, not even reading them and got 32/40 at the 85th percentile..

If you really wanted to be mean, you could have included "Citizen" and "Saving".

Wish there was some way after the quiz when you click on a word to see what movie titles it is from.

It's been said before but I'm going to repeat it because I can, needs to be more decoys and also more obscure words to bamboozle the brain slightly, otherwise good quiz
Jul 16th, 2012 at 00:17 GMT
@save_ferris not to mention "raging."
Jul 16th, 2012 at 10:28 GMT
I think you should make it so that we have the movie title but with the word we have to guess out of it or somehow have the movie title come up after we've done the quiz so we can see what word came from which movie. Great quiz but you could just randomly guess at the words and you'll probably get 80% or more correct so maybe so more decoy answers. Tough

Having "water" in there didn't trip me up as that's very different from "waterfront". But....very tricky having "king" in there. I didn't know whether to pick it or not. I was debating whether king and king's would count as the same word. Without the apostrophe and s, I didn't know if it was meant to be for The King's Speech/All the King's Men or not. I was pretty sure The King and I or The Last King of Scotland didn't win, so in the end I didn't pick it. Thought it was a red herring like water. :)

@triviahapp, don't forget about The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. :]
Jul 16th, 2012 at 15:09 GMT
@MovieGuru: Oh yeah. My bad. I totally forgot about that. I should have known you wouldn't do that to us, Movieguru. Of course, my brain doesn't always work when I want it to; e.g., I picked "Show" thinking of "Greatest Show on Earth", yet I failed to pick "Earth" even though it's in the same title! I did the same thing with "Bridge on the River Kwai." Picked "bridge" for that movie, but couldn't think of a thing when I saw "river" a little later. Enjoyed the quiz. :)

Got about 25 pretty quickly. Carefully got through the next 10 or so. Took a few lucky guesses and got 4 of the last 5. Got skunked by Going (My Way). Great quiz!
Jul 16th, 2012 at 20:19 GMT
apparently everyone scores about the same on this quiz

Wow, this test really made me search the catacombs of my memory bank. Very fun.
