Synopsis-Name the Movie Quiz.

Postby baggygreenmania » Sat Feb 04, 2017 12:13 am

Something for all you movie buffs here on CF that like quizzes.

What you have to do is name the movie from the given synopsis.
The movie can be of any genre.
Rules are post and if answered correctly then that person posts or calls Open Floor.

I will get the ball rolling with a sci fi classic .

Synopsis is as follows: A meteor like object crashes to earth outside a small American town.

Guys, it's been a while since we've had a movie quiz here. Or even much of a discussion on movies.

So this is a welcome thread - let's see how good all of us are, at cracking the quiz questions here.

This "any genre, any time period and from any nation" looks scary - certainly for me :-) , I tend to forget a movie 5 minutes after watching it. :-)

But I'm sure you guys are much smarter than me anyway, so please do take on the challenge, and participate.

Will be good for BGM too - he's new here and is already making his mark here.

Am glad to have him and Mick here on the forum.

Raja and Going South thanks fellas for joining the quiz. Scary for me too raja. I removed, era and nation. Could also scare others. Those 40 odd looking are they allowed to play?
We could change things to make it interesting. Perhaps one week have only films of a certain decade, films by certain actors.. directors. Lets us be flexible. Above all let us have some fun. Hope we have some others come along. I know Mick will be here. What about Verity and Katto. C'mon.. the more the merrier.

Good guess Going South but no kewpie doll. This is a couple of decades earlier. A real Hollywood sci fi classic.
Clue: the leading actor played a popular tv detective.

Thank you kindly for those words Raja... and your help getting the quiz off the ground. Yes Mick and I like it here..friendly little forum. Have not enjoyed a sports forum or for that matter any opinion forum, before or since The Crowd.

Have a guess at the movie. I will put up a Bollywood movie for you and squarecut sometime..

I almost forgot. I am also running a Name the Actor/Actress topic .

No squarecut. That definitely is another classic. This is earlier.

Clues: One of the earliest American-made color sci fis I understand. Featured ground breaking special effects for its time.

Thanks for playing. Have another guess.

Here are the clues so far people. Lead actor in the film played a tv detective , early colorised picture. Clue: Academy Award for special effects. More clues: Made in the 50s. Directed by George Pal. Based on a H G Wells book. Remade in 2005. Remember the original clue. (Meteor like object crashes to earth ouside a small American town).

. No qualifying criteria. Do you want parameters? You can restict your movies to a certain decade if you wish...or a certain genre. Entirely up to you. Whatever you are most comfortable with. I do suggest you do not make them too obscure so others can not guess it.

So pleased to see you playing raja. ..and you said you were dumb. No one else knew it. Good film. Did you see it? Can you name Nicholson's Oscar winning films? This was not one of them. I had to look them all up .. so I will name two Terms of Endearment, AS Good As it gets. What is the other?

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
It was highly-acclaimed, I remember seeing it all those years ago - and it did make an impression on me.
I think it won that year's Best Film Oscar, not sure Nicholson won Best Actor though.

According to his bio he did. It was his first. Do you want a go or do you want me to remain quiz master? I do not mind.

Well, am completely out of touch with films of the last 25 years.
Have hardly watched any movies.

But yes, I used to watch, and enjoy watching, older movies. :-)
In fact, I love watching old Black-and-White films of the 1930s/40s/50s.
Not so much the westerns or war films (though I've watched some of them too) but more the film noir types - very popular through the 1940s/50s.

I gotta say I am also out of touch with most films of the past 20 years too. Or rather they are not to my taste. I also like the film noir genre and many others from that era up to the say the 80s. My fave are whodunnits, sci fi and something with a touch of the occult. Also a good rollicking adventure.

Ok seeing as you like the film noir. Here is one of the best in my view.

SYNOPSIS: A NY detective investigates the brutal murder of a beautiful and successful advertising executive. Clue: Made in 1944.

I've a strong feeling I should be knowing this, but I don't. :-)
That's my problem - if the plot sounds familiar, the name of the film completely escapes me.
If a name sounds familiar, for the life of me, I can't remember the plot. :-)

I give up. Maybe somebody else can have a go at this one.

OK have a think about it anyway. Meanwhile see if you can name the famous Hollywood actress on the other quizz. She is a legend in my eyes.

Synopsis quiz clue: Dana Andrews plays the NY cop.. Also in the film is Australian actress Judith Anderson of Reberra fame as the victim's aunt. Respected actor Clifton Webb as a conniving newspaper columnist is also in the cast..

bolero. There is already a quizz running. Answer that first . If you can not then I either post again or call Open Floor. We have to have some rules.

I'm with you on that. I would say last 15 years though.
Current movies all seem to be propaganda and CGI. Not worth my time.
Older movies are more enjoyable.

Just thinking, since we're now active on movie quizzes, thanks purely to BGM, how about we keep this thread purely for his quizzing?
We'll create a separate thread for movie quizzes by others.

Just an idea. Of course, we could have it all in this one thread, but it could get unwieldy.

If others want a dedicated thread to their quiz, that's fine too. Each person can have a thread for himself. :-)

Only thing is, if you do have a thread for yourself, please try to keep it active with quizzing. :-)

I rate wall-e and finding nemo, they were great in the middle order, and Up was very good with the gloves. But the other mass produced animated or cgi films currently are pretty dire and there are endless remakes or sequels of everything these days

I mean Shane Warne was a great movie but the sequels Doherty, Marcus north, agar, all pretty average. Only really Lyon that was any good

And the string of Strauss I, II, III, IV and V were pretty crap.

raja. This quiz site is for all of us. Reason I set it up. I just think we should have a set of rules as it could be tricky if everybody wanted to post at once.

If you wanted to set up a separate thread specialising in movies that you preferred then I would also join that as we have similar tastes.

If you wanted me to do the quiz mastering I am ok with that as well. Is that what you meant by "keeping this thread purely for my quizzing"?

My film noir quiz has not been answered. No takers? Answer was Laura. You remember it now raja? Good mystery with the delectable Gene Tierney who "came back from the dead". I have dozens of these film noirs to post for starters.

I outlined the types of films I prefer. All mysteries.. not just film noir.. supernatural, sci fi, adventure films up to the 90s. Not only one specific genre Katto. I am off to bed.

What I meant is, if everyone starts posting quizzes and responses randomly in the same thread, we might "lose the thread" (pun unintended). :-)

So, yes, we need some rules.

Either, we wait for one person's quiz question to be closed before another gets his turn to quiz, or, we run parallel threads. So this thread could be for BGM's quizzes alone, another one for another person (or the rest) and so on.

I'm ok with anything as long as we don't make a mess of it. :-)

Laura! Yes, I remember seeing it a long time ago. At that time I saw a lot of b/w movies - this was one of them.

Gene Tierney! Yeah, I remember her not just from this film, but also from "The Razor's Edge".

And I think I saw her in another film, some sort of carnival-story film, can't remember the name now. With Tyrone Power.

Can't remember the name now.

Sorry, just checked.

I got confused.

It was Tyrone Power with Gene Tierney in The Razor's Edge.

The other film (carnival-based story) I'm talking about does have Tyrone Power, but not Gene. That was Nightmare Alley (1947).

The other Gene Tierney film I meant to refer to (but confused it with this carnival film) was The Mating Season (1951). Good fun film.

Now you know how bad I am at this.

Just can't remember anything properly. I remember bits and pieces, and make all sorts of wrong connections. :-)

So, yes, we need some rules.

Either, we wait for one person's quiz question to be closed before another gets his turn to quiz, or, we run parallel threads. So this thread could be for BGM's quizzes alone, another one for another person (or the rest) and so on.

I'm ok with anything as long as we don't make a mess of it. :-)


I totally agree " we wait for one quiz to close before another gets his turn to quiz" That is the point I was trying to make with bolero. I hope I did not come across too harshly with him..but as you and I agree we must have some rules.


MOVIE QUIZ RULES: (if everyone agrees):
Once a quiz is answered the winner has the option of either posting his own quiz ( YOUR FLOOR) or calling (OPEN FLOOR). This means any member can now post. If a thread is left open for too long and is delaying moving along (CLOSED FLOOR) then anyone can step in and post. How does that sound?
We do need to determine how long before a CLOSED FLOOR as we are not all from the same time zone.

Gene Tierney! Yeah, I remember her not just from this film, but also from "The Razor's Edge".

And I think I saw her in another film, some sort of carnival-story film, can't remember the name now. With Tyrone Power.

Can't remember the name now.

I too forgot the name Nightmare Alley.

raja you are no better or worse than I at this caper. How about you posting a Synosis or the Actor/Actress quiz on the other if you have not already done so.
By the way same rules apply with that quiz if everyone agrees.

Turner Classic Movies closing down has removed access to a lot of those black & white films. Luckily I have built up quite a library over the years. So I watch what I want at my leisure. I only watched Laura a couple of months ago. I will watch Razors Edge this week.

I dunno

I like to guess the answers, but I'm too lazy to provide the clues

I am not sure I would be providing you with the types of movie you like if I was to be the sole quizmaster on another thread.
