BSG Movie Trivia (worth 25,000 pts) (Due Sunday Aug 18th at 6pm)

Recommended Posts

This is the part of the game that some like and others hate.  I like it, as I think it's fun and since I love movie trivia, I have incorporated it into the game since year one.

 

For those of you playing this game for the first time, this is very simple.  

 

I will ask you a series of trivia questions all about movies.  Most of the answers can be found on line, I concede that.  There is nothing I can do about this in today's information age. However there will be a couple of questions that you might not be able to find on line, which means you will actually have to know the answer from seeing the film.

 

This is different in that you will have a week to send me your answers,  and yes, you send me your answers by pm, you do not post your answers here.  Everyone has the same questions.  As soon as you send me your answers, I will give you one chance to change an answer.  So if you send me your answers and I tell you that you have one wrong, you have one chance to get it right.  After that, you do not have a second opportunity to get any corrections.

 

As soon as you are scored, I post your score and add it to your current score.

 

Now someone here is going to have to give me questions.  I expect them to be fair.  Last year they were not and I scored very poorly.  I'm open to pretty much anyone giving me trivia but again it has to be fair.  Don't ask me what Simba had for breakfast at the 98 minute mark of The Lion King.  

 

If you have any questions, you ask them here.  No one is to help anyone with this.  This is 25,000 points.  

 

Good luck!!

Isn't the point to do it without any internet search?

 

I can change up a couple if baumer thinks they're too easy.

 

(Out of curiosity, which ones stump you?) :P

 

Strange days and the movie cast one.

 

The point may be to do it without Googling but too many points at stake to stick to the point  :D (Not that I would ever Google the answers - I believe in the games integrity :ph34r: )

Yea, but that's hard.  Almost everything is googleable.

 

Try this.

 

When is Michael's birthday in Jaws?  They never say it but if you know the movie, you can piece it together.

It would be interesting (and challenging) to come up with un-googleable questions.

that would be too harsh, for me at least. I only watched Titanic and Halloween of those movies somewhat mentioned in the trivia, even these questions I had to google
