HOLIDAY MOVIE QUIZ

aka PROFESSOR HUBERT FARNSWORTH’S ONLY SLIGHTLY FUTURISTIC HOLIDAY MOVIE QUIZ


Another great quiz by Dennis Cozzalio.

Giorgos Lanthimos's DOGTOOTH

.





2) 2ND-FAVORITE POLANSKI
THE TENANT (1976)

I love both these guys' on screen persona but I prefer The Rock more by just a smidge

.







4) FAVORITE MOVIE THAT COULD BE CLASSIFIED AS A GENRE HYBRID
ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004)

.







5) HOW IMPORTANT IS FOREKNOWLEDGE OF A FILM'S PRODUCTION HISTORY? SHOULD IT FACTOR INTO ONE'S REACTION TO A FILM?
No it shouldn't factor into one's reaction in my opinion. Should be a general rule of thumb that you judge a film by what the final product is. What's on the screen

.






6) WILLIAM POWELL & MYRNA LOY 
OR CARY GRANT & IRENE DUNNE?
Def Cary & Irene

.







7) BEST ACTOR OF 2010
Edgar Ramirez in CARLOS

8) MOST IMPORTANT LESSON LEARNED FROM THE PAST DECADE OF WATCHING MOVIES
We've got to make cinema more diverse in front of & behind the camera. There's been decent progress over the past decade but I would hate to reach 2020 and have the industry be pretty much as it is now

21) THINK OF A MOVIE WITH A NOTABLE MUSICAL SCORE & DESCRIBE WHAT IT MIGHT FEEL LIKE WITHOUT THAT ACCOMPANIMENT
