In recent months, my roommates, K, and assorted Baltimore friends have begun a daily trivia contest. Each of us creates quizzes for dedicated days of the week (I have Tuesday), and then we e-mail them to each other. It's a great way to kill time at work, or to realize how dumb you are.
1.) You must know the knowledge off the top of your head.
2.) Ten questions
3.) As many bonus questions as you want.
4.) New theme every week (i.e. food, sailing terminology, Harry Potter)
5.) No looking up the answers when you're taking the quiz.
So, I decided that every Tuesday night, I'll post my quiz from the day. If you want to participate, leave your answers in the comments. Maybe if this catches on I'll give away a prize or something.
1.) Three movies have won 11 Academy Awards in the same year. Name two
of them. (.5 each, 1 point bonus for the third)
2.) Match the famous quote to the film:
Gone With The Wind
“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
“Here’s looking at you, kid.”
“You talkin to me?”
"You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do
3.) What is the name of the shrimp company Forrest opens in the 1994
film “Forrest Gump?”
4.) There are four Indiana Jones films. Name them. (.25 each)
5.) Which of these four films did Martin Scorsese NOT direct?
a. Gangs of New York
c. The Departed
d. The Godfather, Part III
6.) What was the first feature film produced with sound? (One point
bonus: What year was it?)
7.) In the 2007 classic “Hot Rod,” what flavor punch upsets Rico’s stomach?
8.) What speed must Doc Brown’s DeLorean reach to time travel in the
Back to the Future films?
9.) What were the names of the two burglars in Home Alone and Home
Alone 2: Lost in New York? Character names, not actor names.
10.) What is the highest grossing film of all-time, worldwide?
Bonus #1: The movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High featured three future
Academy Award winners for Best Actor. Name them. (1 point each)
Bonus #2: Name as many members of the Ocean’s Eleven crew as possible.
Actor names, not character names. And I mean actual members of Danny
Ocean’s crew, not any other characters. Oh, and from the recent
Ocean’s Eleven film, not the one with Frank Sinatra back in the 60s.
Those are all the stipulations. (.5 each)
