Share this Article:

In this week’s film quiz, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk? Good luck.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £1: right here!

As usual, we’ve got 30 questions about movies, with the key difference being that 10 of them are also quotes from those movies. On either side of that round, a selection of trivial teasers about movies old and new, on subjects ranging from TV-to-film spin-offs to foreign-language remakes of American films, with the odd movie-star birthday thrown in for good measure.

Once you’ve finished 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 give us any other lovely feedback. Any questions? Cos we’ve got a few…
