One Star Movie Reviews Quiz - Round 18

Postby D.J » 13 Mar 2013, 09:59

Hey folks, i've decided to launch a new quiz which will be similar in both rules and format to Crisps/Fabong's sensible quiz.

The twist here though, is that each question will be an Amazon one star movie review (of varying difficulty), and the idea of this quiz is to guess the film that the reviewer is talking about.

Each round will consist of five one star reviews, and like the other quiz, there's no signups so you're free to just dip in and out whenever you feel like it. That said though, there will be a leaderboard so be sure to try and guess as many as you can.

Below, you will find round one, and to enter, simply PM your guesses to me.

Leaderboard

rukaio101 - 74.5pts
garfield.01 - 57pts
ChaosControl - 45pts
TheImprobableOne - 35pts
Tailisjoy - 22pts
beserker - 10.5pts
LilMissFirefly - 10pts
parametakoopa - 10pts
superthingymabob - 5pts
BicycleShirk - 4.5pts
Cheesemonster - 4pts
MamoswineTamer - 2pts
KingoftheSocks - 1pt

Might as well give this a try, even if I am having to guess for some.
Is it worth having a sig for just a month?
Come November, I'll still be on Steam and maybe Facebook if you ask nicely.

Okay folks, round 1 has come to an end and i'm pleased with the amount of entries received.

The answers to our first batch of reviews are as follows, and 1 point is to be awarded for each correct answer...

1. Independence Day
2. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
3. The Matrix
4. 300
5. V For Vendetta

This first set were all fairly easy ones to get things underway, though in regards to no.2, those who simply gave the answer 'Lord of the Rings' will be awarded half a point as full marks are only awarded for naming the specific installment.

Still, here's how you folks did...

rukaio101 - 5pts
LilMissFirefly - 5pts
garfield.01 - 4.5pts
ChaosControl - 4pts
TheImprobableOne - 4pts
superthingymabob - 3pts
Cheesemonster - 2pts

EDIT
--------

Round 2 is now over, nothing to see here.

Far too many guesses for this round... I think I'll be lucky to get two.

Number 1 is the only one I am really unsure about.

Other than that, I'm pretty confident

Number 1 has me stumped as well. There's only one film that comes to mind but neither the actor or character is from Idaho.
Hopefully, I'll do okay at this round.

Wait, are we talking Rambo: First Blood here? Because John Rambo was from Arizona, not Idaho, and he arrived in town on foot, so how did he get a parking ticket? That was kind of an unfair entry.

Except it's not a continuity error. He never got a parking ticket in the film, despite what the review claims.

Had to do quiet a few random guesses at the end for this one, though I do rather like the longer rounds.
