Movie Trivia Challenge for Week of 02.07.2011

“Shall we play a game?”

And with that simple question, we’ll now engage in the online, movie trivia equivalent of thermonuclear warfare!

How you play the Insanely Difficult, Damn-Near Impossible Movie Trivia Challenge:

Each letter in the word picture below comes from a different VHS cover. All you have to do is identify which movie title each letter comes from based solely on the letter given.  Then, submit your answer(s) via the process below and you win. It’s as simple as that! Good luck!

Recap of the rules and how to submit answers:

  • Submit your answers via Twitter to @forgottenflix (use the hashtag #movietrivia) or leave your answers in the comments section of this post.
  • Submit all answers by 8 PM (EST) today (02/07/2011) via Twitter or this post’s comments section.
  • You only have to get one letter correct to win and I’ll enter your name into the next prize drawing (March 2011).
  • Your name will be entered into the prize drawing for every correct answer you submit for a total of 6 possible times (based on the word below).

One Final Note

The prize drawings will now occur once every quarter rather than once a month. This ensures the prizes are of a higher quality and that more people will have the opportunity to enter and win!

If you have any questions, are confused about the new game play, or generally want to vent your frustrations as you scour the Inter-Webs searching for the answers, please leave a comment below or email me at trivia@forgottenflix.com.

Remember ALL answers are due by tonight (02/07) at 8 PM (EST) and must be submitted via Twitter or the comments section to count!

Now that you know how to play, here’s your word for the week courtesy of Mr. Dale Lloyd (remember to check him out on Twitter @VivaVHS):

Movie Trivia Challenge word: TREMOR

UPDATE: Because Quiz-Maestro Dale was basing his quizzes on the “6 Movies You Must See” series which is coming to an end this week, we discussed taking a (hopefully) temporary break from the word quizzes as well. And while we can’t begin to replace those marvelous brain-boilers, starting next week, we’ll be trying out some different quizzes.

Hopefully, from time to time, Dale will honor us with one of his quizzes. But until that glorious day arrives, be sure to check out the ALL NEW INSANELY-DIFFICULT MOVIE TRIVIA CHALLENGE!

And until next time remember, a flick is only forgotten if you’re not talking about it!

Movie Trivia Challenge for the Week of 12/07

Quentin Tarantino knows his movie trivia... do you?

Previously on…

… the Insanely Difficult, Damn-Near-Impossible Movie Trivia Challenge:

We had our first-ever Movie Trivia Challenge prize-drawing winner @KyloDarf (see what awesome prizes she won here). Congratulations again!

I’ve also decided, with the help of movie trivia master Dale Lloyd (follow him on Twitter @VivaVHS), to change things up a bit.

A New Way To Play the Same Insanely-Difficult Game

You only have to get one letter correct to win. Yep. You heard me right! Just get one movie title correct, be the first to email it to trivia@forgottenflix.com, and you are the top winner of that letter for the week.  And your name will, of course, be entered into the next prize drawing.

Additionally, if you’re the first to get the answer to me for a letter, you’ll receive an honorable mention in Friday’s post and, once it launches (the first episode will be available on 12/15), you’ll also get a mention in an upcoming episode of the podcast. There will be one TOP WINNER per letter.

To increase your chances of winning, you can email in your answers for every letter in the movie trivia word. And for every movie title you get correct, your name will be entered into the prize drawing. But what if you’re not the first one to submit the answer for a letter? Well, all your hard work won’t be for naught… for every correct answer you submit, I’ll enter your name into the next prize drawing too!

Of course, only those who submit their answers first (before the deadline of Thursday 12/09 8 PM EST) will get the public kudos and the ego-boosting knowledge that they are, indeed, a member of team Awesome, possessing an almost supernatural capacity to identify VHS box art!

One Final Note

The prize drawings will now occur once every quarter rather than once a month. This ensures the prizes are of a higher quality and that more people will have the opportunity to enter and win!

So, there you have the new game “rules”. If you have any questions, are confused about the new game play, or generally want to vent your frustrations as you scour the Inter-Webs, please leave a comment or email me at trivia@forgottenflix.com. Remember ALL answers are due by Thursday, December 09, 2010 at 8 PM (EST).

Here is this week’s trivia word and good luck!

Insanely Difficult Movie Trivia Challenge for 11/23!

UPDATE: Due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States, I’m going to extend the deadline for this week’s trivia challenge to Friday (11/26) at 8 PM. I’ll announce the winners in Monday’s post and the prize drawing winner will be announced on Tuesday. So, be sure to get your answers emailed to me joel@forgottenflix.com as soon as you can!

Here’s the Trivia Challenge for the week of November 23rd.

Remember, if you want to post your guesses in the comments section and help each other out, you are more than welcome to do so. However, only those who submit all the correct answers to me via email before Thursday (11/25) at 8 PM will be entered into the prize drawing taking place on 11/30.

You can play every week. And every time you win, you’ll get your name entered into a prize drawing at the end of the month. I’ll only be drawing one name, so you’ll want to get your name in there as many times as possible to increase your chances of winning! And speaking of the prize drawing, I’m creating more of a “prize pack” consisting of at least two or three movie-related items. I’ll announce exactly what the prizes are on the day of the drawing (11/30).

This week’s trivia word, Flash, is courtesy of Mr. Dale Lloyd over at DaleLloyd.com (@VivaVHS and @Dale_Lloyd on Twitter). Let’s give the man a hand (just make sure you get it back from him before you leave)!

And once again, here’s a reminder of the rules:

  1. I post a new movie trivia challenge word every Tuesday.
  2. The word is spelled out using letters from the VHS box art of several different movies.
  3. You study the letters and see if you can identify each movie based on the letter representing it.
  4. Once you think you know all the answers, email them to me (joel@forgottenflix.com) by 8 PM on Thursday (11/25).
  5. Everyone who emails me all the correct answers by the deadline gets entered into a drawing for a prize. The drawing will take place on 11/30!
  6. I’ll announce the quiz answers in Friday’s post and post the names of everyone who got them all correct. If you’re first, you’ll be this week’s Trivia (Beast)Master!

And remember, a flick is only forgotten if you’re not talking about it!

Good luck!

Insanely Difficult Movie Trivia Challenge for 11/16

Here’s the second Insanely Difficult, Damn-Near-Impossible Movie Trivia Challenge for November 16th. But first…

… since I never posted the answers for last week’s quiz, I’m going to get those out of the way:

M = Attack of the Killer Tomatoes; O = Halloween; V = Convoy; I = The Wiz; E = Up In Smoke

From here on out, I’ll give you the quiz answers in Friday’s post. So, be sure to check back then!

Remember, if you want to post your guesses in the comments section and help each other out, you are more than welcome to do so. However, only those who submit all the correct answers to me via email before Thursday (11/18) at 8 PM will be entered into the prize drawing taking place on 11/30.

You can play every week. And every time you win, you’ll get your name entered into the drawing. I’ll only be drawing one name, so you’ll want to get your name in there as many times as possible to increase your chances of winning! And speaking of the prize drawing, I’m creating more of a “prize pack” consisting of at least two or three movie-related items. I’ll announce exactly what the prizes are on the day of the drawing (11/30).

This week’s trivia word, Marion, is courtesy of Mr. Dale Lloyd over at DaleLloyd.com (@VivaVHS on Twitter). For extra credit, can you guess why he chose the word “Marion,” (and its significance to cinema history)? Did I just say extra credit? Yep, like the credit of knowing you’re a freakin’ awesome, walking, talking encyclopedia of trivia!

Finally, here’s a reminder of the rules:

  1. I post a new movie trivia challenge word every Tuesday.
  2. The word is spelled out using letters from the VHS box art of several different movies.
  3. You study the letters and see if you can identify each movie based on the letter representing it.
  4. Once you think you know all the answers, email them to me (joel@forgottenflix.com) by 8 PM on Thursday (11/18).

  6. I’ll announce the quiz answers in Friday’s post and post the names of everyone who got them all correct. If you’re first, you’ll be this week’s Trivia (Beast)Master!

And remember, a flick is only forgotten if you’re not talking about it!

Good luck!

Insanely Difficult, Damn-Near-Impossible, Totally Awesome Movie Trivia Challenge!

by Joel G. Robertson

UPDATE: Honest and open. It’s how I try to live my life and it’s what I want to be with you. So, in the spirit of letting it all hang out, let me tell you straight up that before last Friday (Nov. 5) I had no idea I’d be posting Dale Lloyd’s fantastic movie quizzes.

But once Dale offered them up, I wanted to get them to you post haste. And while I knew that the quiz winners would get bragging rights, I still wanted to take it to another level. It also occurred to me that if people put in all the hard work to figure these quizzes out, it wasn’t fair to only acknowledge one person.

Then, my lovely wife Heather had a great idea. If you submit all the correct answers first, you are the undisputed, heavyweight, (Beast)master of the Insanely Difficult, Damn-Near-Impossible Movie Trivia Challenge. And in my Friday post, I’ll acknowledge you as such. But the game playing goodness won’t stop there!

ANYONE who submits ALL the correct answers via email (joel@forgottenflix.com) before 8 PM (EST) on Thursday will also get mentioned in the Friday post. So, every week we’ll have one Trivia (Beast)Master (a title you can use to shame your friends and influence no one) as well as all the Trivia Warriors who submitted all the correct answers before the deadline.

Clear as mud? Well, here’s the best part: At the end of every month, if you earned the title of Trivia (Beast)Master or Trivia Warrior, your name will be entered into a drawing for a movie-related prize. What prize you ask? Well, nothing too fancy. After all, the budget’s tight around here at the Mall Twin ever since those new-fangled multiplexes came to town. They’ll include things like posters, movie pins, DVDs of movies new and old, even retro VHS or some other obscure movie-related memorabilia.

In other words, prizes will vary, but hell, it’s a free prize and you could always hoc it on eBay. But even more important than winning mass-produced crap something amazing will be the warm fuzzy you’ll get from knowing you wasted hours, nay, days of your life trying to figure these quizzes out.

Also, you are more than welcome to post your guesses in the comments section or to help each other out, but only the participants who submit ALL the correct answers to me by email before the deadline will get entered into the drawing.

So, keep at it… time is running out!

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

Every Tuesday here on Forgotten Flix, I’ll be posting a movie trivia challenge word courtesy of Dale Lloyd. Dale, you see, is a VHS aficionado and connoisseur of great video box art. When he contacted me to let me know about his quizzes, I jumped at the chance to feature them on this site. You should definitely follow him on Twitter (@VivaVHS) and check out his blog dalelloyd.com!

And this ain’t your momma’s movie trivia game folks! No, this sucker is for the hardcore fans. For those of us who shuffled, Walking Dead-style, through our local Armchair Theater or Lackluster Video stores, starring down at those clamshell boxes, our wide eyes taking in lurid, sensational, and dare I say it, even wholesome video art!

So, here’s how the game works:

  1. I’ll post a new movie trivia challenge word every Tuesday.
  2. The word is spelled out using letters from several different movies’ VHS box art
  3. You study the word and see if you can identify each movie based on only one letter.
  4. Once you think you know, you can post your answers in the comments section or email them to me.
  5. I’ll announce the answers in Friday’s post as well as the name of the person who got them all correct first.

You can get the answers any way you see fit. If you want to cheat look them up and take the easy way out not strain your brain, you could do that. Or, you could man-up and take these bad boys on the way the good Lord Vader intended, by staring at those retro fonts and stylized designs until your eyes bleed!

And then, after the sizzling between your ears subsides, you can look down at your answers with pride, finding no solace whatsoever in the knowledge that most of them will be wrong. J

So, without any further fiddle-farting around, here is this week’s word (followed by a hint): 

Hint: All the movies contained within this word have one thing in common; they’re all from the same year. And that year just happens to be the one I’ll be talking about in this Friday’s “6 Forgotten Flix You Must See Before You Die”. Good luck!

If you still aren’t quite sure how this game’s played (because my directions suck), or you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to email me at joel@forgottenflix.com. Oh, and don’t come around begging for hints, ‘cause you’re not getting any!

So, until next time, remember, a flick is only forgotten if you’re not talking about it!
