Tough Questions for the Real Movie Nerd!

This challenge takes you back to some of the most influential films of our time. It’s a tough set of questions for the real movie nerd.

A Quick Guide to Winning Movie Quizzes

If you want to win a movie quiz, one of the best things you could do to prepare is to watch as many films as you can. Obviously. Learn to summarize the plot, look for classic lines used by the main characters. Read reviews. Check for recognition, like nominations and awards. The more buzz a film created, the more likely it is to find its way into a film quiz or trivia challenge. Getting into the habit of connecting actors, main characters and films will help you get a structure to your movie knowledge.

Pay special attention to the small obscure things that could catch a quiz master’s eye. Information is always more memorable if it is unusual and fun. Fictional countries in films, as an example, are an endless resource for quiz makers. So are film characters based on real persons or plots based on real events.

Modern quizzes also tend to include the kind of associative or relationship thinking that computers aren’t very good at. Instead of just rattle off facts, you should learn to see interesting connections that make a good quiz question.

In other words, the kind of connections or cryptic definitions you won’t find by just searching online. Remember, quiz makers, especially the ones creating pub quizzes, try hard to make it hard for you to simply look up the answer with your cell phone. Quizzes should pick one’s brains, not Google’s or Wikipedia’s.
