There are a lot of these that are actually more comedic than dramatic. I won't name them because of spoilers, but Marge Gunderson, Ben Braddock, Vivian Ward, and John Bender are the clues.

In the Soprano family, that second movie is just called "Two."
Mar 25th, 2011 at 19:38 GMT
I'd argue there aren't really any "good guys" in The Godfather 2.
Mar 25th, 2011 at 20:57 GMT
I don't really think of Mrs. Robinson as a bad guy (or bad woman). Also, the Kane one might be a little obvious.
Mar 26th, 2011 at 01:49 GMT
Kane is also suspicious as a "good guy"
Mar 26th, 2011 at 09:13 GMT
"Protagonist" and "antagonist" might be better terms to use in this quiz...
Mar 26th, 2011 at 11:58 GMT
I think Mattie Ross would be a better choice than Rooster Cogburn as the "good guy" in their film.
Mar 26th, 2011 at 15:46 GMT
I originally made it Good Guys and Bad Guys for consistency with the other two quizzes I made (action and comedy films.) But protagonist and antagonist does make more sense for this one, so I've update it. Thanks for the suggestions.
Mar 26th, 2011 at 16:25 GMT
I did well but somehow missed Kane lol. Ridiculous. Agree that Mattie ross is the prime protagonist in True Grit but I think Rooster works too, especially as the movie progresses
Apr 7th, 2011 at 08:41 GMT
I think that Jeffrey Beaumont is the protagonist in Blue Velvet, not Dorothy Vallens, who is more of a somewhat sinister damsel-in-distress.

And Shawshank Redemption manages its way on to a quiz for the 487th time. Its becoming the Kyrgyzstan of movie answers.

"...They had to make sure they could go on working, but they also had to make sure they could never run away. The operation was called 'hobbling'..."
May 14th, 2011 at 05:03 GMT
Thanks for the nod to Contact...very underrated movie.
May 14th, 2011 at 05:32 GMT
Actually I think Shawshank Redemption is on more movie quizzes than Kyrgyzstan is in geography. (Unless you count "bonus" answers and the comment section;)
May 14th, 2011 at 06:26 GMT
Is there something in the Sporcle bylaws requiring that One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest be included on every quiz in which it is possible to reference it? Film, literature, fill in the vowel, things about birds... I'm tempted to set up some sort of keyboard macro.
Comment below threshold:
May 14th, 2011 at 06:27 GMT
I thought Breakfast Club for the "principal" clue, but then didn't type it because it wasn't a dramatic film. D'oh.
May 14th, 2011 at 06:38 GMT
Me for just about every clue: "Arroway... Arroway...
Arroway... Oh! Okay. Marge Gunderson... [nasally] Marge Gunderson... Got it!" For some reason saying the names aloud helps me on these types of quizzes. Lots of fun, can't wait for the next one.

I need to watch more films

By the way, can Michael Corleone really be considered a protagonist?
May 14th, 2011 at 10:04 GMT
@mmag, Is it the 487th time already?
May 14th, 2011 at 10:37 GMT
nice selction of films
May 14th, 2011 at 13:38 GMT
I really disagree with Walter Thatcher being the "antagonist" of Citizen Kane. Hell, if anything, Kane is his own antagonist.
May 14th, 2011 at 15:44 GMT
Haha, I saw "Braddock" and thought Cinderella Man...only to see the antagonist was Mrs. Robinson. Would have been a lot different movie if Braddock won his triumphant return in a bout against a lady.
May 14th, 2011 at 15:59 GMT
Surely Jeffrey Beaumont is the protagonist of Blue Velvet?
May 14th, 2011 at 16:21 GMT
Rooster Cogburn is NOT the protagonist of True Grit. Mattie Ross is. At least in the remake.
May 14th, 2011 at 17:13 GMT
I thought Roy Hobbs was a much more iconic name that it apparently is. I guess it's just iconic among baseball people.
May 14th, 2011 at 17:22 GMT
5 globes for including 12 Angry Men. I'm currently in the middle of exams, and doing an analysis of the jurors is the final for my gifted class :)
May 14th, 2011 at 18:05 GMT
@matt01: By definition, the protagonist is simply the main character, whether he/she is sympathetic or unsympathetic. Even with the flashbacks, Michael Corleone is most clear-cut as the protagonist in Part II than anyone is in any of the Godfathers. And then I would agree with Hyman Roth as the primary antagonist assuming Michael is protagonist.
May 14th, 2011 at 22:39 GMT
Excellent quiz. I didn't do as well as I'd've hoped, but there were a few that I plucked out of some deep, dark recess of my memory. Most enjoyable!
May 15th, 2011 at 01:21 GMT
@HonoriaG it's not only limited to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. No Country For Old Men is also on pretty much every movie quiz - as is There Will Be Blood (although strangely enough, it's not here for a change!) ;)
May 15th, 2011 at 04:27 GMT
A very enjoyable quiz! However, I immediately typed in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" just to see if I would get answer right away.
May 17th, 2011 at 02:31 GMT
I really don't consider John Bender as a protagonist. He was such a jackass to Molly Ringwald.
Sep 12th, 2011 at 17:20 GMT
if frank booth isn't the greatest (or at least most memorable) antagonist/villain in american cinema, i have no idea who is
Oct 12th, 2012 at 13:48 GMT
Vernon is the "Assistant" Principal.
