Sheeeyat. 22. What was the answer to the Brando question? He didn't really write notes in his Gideon Bible about Revelation, did he? Did he?

I scored a very Discordian 23.

You can get the answers after you get your score, Billy.

18. Perfect on content within a movie, half and half on celebrity news crap.

28. Oh my.

Kind of a dopey quiz though. On a 30-question quiz they shouldn't have several repeat mentions of the same movie.
posted by surferboy at 3:48 PM on December 22, 2005


A robust 16. Which is really quite good since I've seen exactly none of the films they talk about.

billysumday, do you really think Brando would have a signed photo of the Spice Girls? That was an easy one.

19. Apparently I have a life.

I don't.

20. I guessed a lot.

23. I guessed on quite a few.

21. Lot of celebrity crap that has little to do with enjoyment of film.

8. I guess I could care a little less.

8 as well. I might have scored a slightly higher score if I had read all the questions. It was all guesswork anyways.

[celebrities suck]

18. I did a lot better on last year's, which is embarassing for several reasons.

12. but I only knew 2 for sure.

billysumday, do you really think Brando would have a signed photo of the Spice Girls?

Well, I did. I really, honestly did.
posted by billysumday at 5:04 PM on December 22, 2005


20. But contrary to the site's analysis, I, in fact, do not lead a healthy and well-balanced life.
posted by JeffK at 5:04 PM on December 22, 2005


23. Which is pretty good, I guess, since I've seen about two movies this year.

On preview: billysumday, I missed that one too; I wanted it to be true.

20/30/ Not bad since I don't get to the movies as often as I like. I flamed out on the celebrity-worship...
posted by orbis23 at 5:33 PM on December 22, 2005


15, and I haven't been to the movies in years. Most of the answers could be gleaned from the constant marketing barrage of the movies...and some were just guesses, or answers that I wanted to be true...ala Marlon Brando not owning a spice girls picture. :)

23/30, i guessed, a lot.

still beat a lot of you though, so ha!

20. Whoever wrote this sure liked The Life Aquatic.
posted by bobo123 at 6:27 PM on December 22, 2005


24. And I only saw one of the movies mentioned. I know way too much about celebrities.
posted by jrossi4r at 6:27 PM on December 22, 2005


20 from 30.

I like to think that it was the gossip-bits I missed.
posted by grabbingsand at 6:41 PM on December 22, 2005


11. But I got #2 right, which is all that matters.
posted by Foosnark at 6:54 PM on December 22, 2005


24, team effort, me and Marcy.
posted by muckster at 7:10 PM on December 22, 2005


20 out of a possible 30. Missed one in each category with the exception of Name that Movie and Hollywood Courtroom (which were perfect), and I missed two in Hits and Misses. Some of these questions were a little obtuse including some that only a movie media hog could answer correctly, but twas fun anyhoo.
posted by HyperBlue at 7:24 PM on December 22, 2005


21. But I had to guess on a third so it's just pure luck that I got them right.
posted by luriete at 7:28 PM on December 22, 2005


22 out of 30, guessing most of the way.
posted by thomas j wise at 8:08 PM on December 22, 2005


12, heh. The only movies I've traveled to the theater this year though was Batman Begins and Star Wars RotS. Well I did go to an animation film festival, but none of that was on there. Ah well.

25. But should have worked out the Jane Fonda answer.
posted by biffa at 2:59 AM on December 23, 2005


14, and quite satisfied with that.

21.

I'm on a film course.

Something may be wrong.
posted by feelinglistless at 2:58 PM on December 23, 2005


20. I faked myself out on the Brando estate question. And I've seen 13 of the films mentioned. I've got to get to the theaters more often.
posted by skoosh at 5:57 AM on December 24, 2005


billysumday, do you really think Brando would have a signed photo of the Spice Girls? That was an easy one.

If Mandela can be photographed with them, anything is possible. That's why I missed it, anyway.
posted by PinkStainlessTail at 7:18 AM on December 24, 2005


20. Which I was quite pleased with.
posted by MrMustard at 1:26 PM on December 24, 2005


20. Guessed a lot. Felt dirty.
