Film Quiz Friday | Blunt Force Trivia

Share this Article:

This week’s film quiz features 30 quick questions on subjects ranging from quotes and taglines to Emily Blunt movies.

They say that beside every great Ryan Gosling performance, there is a great woman, and this week, it’s Emily Blunt in The Fall Guy (read Simon’s 4-star review here). Over the last 20 years, Blunt has established herself as one of those movie stars who can do it all – comedy, horror, sci-fi, romance, period drama, musicals, thrillers, and that bit in The Five-Year Engagement where she bosses a Cookie Monster impression, so Round 2 is about all those and more.

Once you’ve completed this week’s film quiz, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is all just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. If in doubt, remember, “C” is for “Correct”, and that’s good enough for me.
