Well, as everyone else is doing it, I thought I'd give a quick quiz too. These are games we used to play when we were bored at work (I worked in a video store)

The first is a subtitle quiz, I will give some subtitles of movies and you guess the movie. For example:

Protecting the earth from the scum of the universe
=Men In Black

There is an extremely handy website out there that will tell you all the answers in 3 clicks, but it's more fun to think about it, isn't it??

And the second is a simple steps quiz; we called it 6 steps to Kevin Bacon. We played it naming 2 film stars with an obvious connection ie, Michael Douglas/Catherine Zeta-Jones or Tommy Lee Jones/Will Smith. Then you have to connect them again without using that link ie:
Will Smith - Wild Wild West w. Salma Hayek - Dogma w. Ben Affleck - Armageddon w. Liv Tyler - Lord of the Rings w. Cate Blanchett - the Missing w. Tommy Lee Jones!

You can use family ties, directors, any link. We used to pride ourselves on the most obscure links possible rather than the number of links. (We liked to show off our independent film knowledge - snobbery is everywhere lol)

I don't think I've seen any of those films. Horrors aren't really my thing. The last 'horror' I saw was 'The Blair Witch Project' which, quite frankly, was very horrific at all : o )

Right, request of Blaise; here's a new quiz that's not totally scary. There is a theme connecting them all:

1. Two men enter. One man leaves.

2. Something wicked this way comes.

3. Trapped in time. Surrounded by evil. Low on gas.

4. Adventure Is Reborn.

5. The West just got wilder.

6. A New Power Is Rising.

7. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

8. All the power on earth can't change destiny.

9. Break The Silence.

10. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the movies...

11. A little SQUIRT makes a big SPLASH!

12. The Gang's All Here.

Hmmm ... one of the themes being that I don't know any of them! I'll have a go anyway.

1) Don't know.
2) Isn't that the title of a film?
3) Resident Evil?
4) Tomb Raider
5) Wild Wild West
6) Power Rangers
7) Don't know.
8) The Day After Tomorrow
9) Don't know.
10) Nope.
11) Nope
12) And nope.

Sorry Llolly ... all that work and so few answers : o ) I really should go to the pictures more - or at least pay attention to the adverts.
