Film Quiz Friday: Settling Martin Scorsese

Killers Of The Flower Moon
Share this Article:

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to ask 30 questions about movies. This week’s film quiz highlights the films of Martin Scorsese.

We wouldn’t be the first to observe that Martin Scorsese is on a heck of a run with his last few movies. This week sees the cinema release of his 26th feature film Killers Of The Flower Moon (read Ryan’s five-star review here), and we’ve got questions about some of the other 25 movies in Round 2. On either side, there’s a big mix of trivia about all things cinematic.

Once you’ve completed all three film quiz 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 give us any other lovely feedback. It’s time to find out if you know your Mean Streets from your Wolf Of Wall Street
