Quentin Tarantino turns 60 years old this weekend, so this week’s film quiz spotlights his nine or ten movies to date…

Like Doctor Who and the smiley face icon, Quentin Tarantino is 60 this year. Accordingly, this week’s film quiz has a round about his filmography so far. His movies have plenty of quotable questions like “Do you find me sadistic?”, “They speak English in What?”, and “Are you gonna bark all day, li’l doggy, or are you gonna bite?”, but we’ve gone a different way, more in keeping with the rest of your weekly movie trivia tombola.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week) and leave us any other lovely feedback. Bonus points if anyone knows what they call Film Quiz Friday in Paris…
