    HORROR MOVIE TRIVIA

    Happy Halloween, everyone! I thought that it would be fun to have a horror movie thread today. Here is the first question. In the 1978 movie *Halloween,* one of the characters is named after a character in another famous horror movie. Who is the character, and what movie is his name from?

    Ultimate Movie Trivia

    Here is the first question- What 1920 horror movie starred John Barrymore?
  4. In this new game, whoever controls the thread must write a short rhyming poem that describes a particular movie. Everyone else can then guess from the poetry what that movie is. Here is the first poem; can you name the movie? A movie actor walks alone by himself, Discovering that his career has been put back on a shelf. He then meets up with two of his perky friends, And soon becomes a part of many song and dance numbers that only musicals can amend. He meets a tall guy who is rather tough, But who'd probably rather watch "Faust" than act rough. Oh, these actors talk and dance both in the sun and in the dark, But they discover that the only place to use the darkness for music is in a certain New York park.

    Describe A Movie Based On Poetry

    Here's one: They said the sun never set on the British empire, And it can also be said that "good old Nick" would have been a fair umpire. This rule-abiding WWII veteran would probably memorize and know well every rule of the game bridge, Just as he'd most certainly build a big bridge. He'd think of the Geneva Code as quite groovy, Can you name the movie?

    name the movie

    That is correct. I've always tried to notice the engravings whenever I watch the movie, but I can never see them. Your thread.

    name the movie

    In Raiders of the Lost Ark, what sci-fi characters are supposedly engraved on the walls of the snake pit when Indiana Jones and Sallah are carrying the Ark of the Covenant?

    Favorite film soundtracks or film songs

    I think that Jurassic Park & Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom have beautiful and underrated soundtracks. The "Main Themes" from Jurassic Park are wonderful. As for Temple of Doom, "Short Round's Theme," "Slave Children's Crusade," and "Return to the Village" stand out. In my opinion, John Williams is the greatest movie composer in movie history.

    That is correct.

    Name the pre-1970 film

    Okay. A guy helps some other guys carry out a murder when he thinks he is just helping them push someone around, and he gets some moral and spiritual help afterwards from a young lady and a Catholic priest. Edited by: THEMovieman on Jan 27, 2013 7:54 PM

    Name the pre-1970 film

    That is correct; I think it's a terrific movie.

    Oscar nominations announced

    The nominations are decent, but there were definitely some snubs. I am surprised that Harry Potter didn't get nominated for Best Picture; not only did it get rave reviews, but I don't think the series has ever won an Oscar, and the Academy can be very sympathetic. The Best Song category is disappointing; "Life's a Happy Song" and "Star-Spangled Man" should have been in there. I thought that "The Artist", "Hugo", "Moneyball", and "War Horse" were all great movies, with "War Horse" being my favorite, although I think that "The Artist" deserves Best Picture. A silent, old-fashioned movie in 2011- great job to the people behind that movie. I am excited for the ceremony.
  20. Recently, the Golden Globe and Critic's Choice Awards were announced, and although they are not as big as the Academy Awards, I thought that there were some ridiculous nominations and snubs. My biggest complaint is in the "best song" category for both awards shows. Although "Life's A Happy Song" from The Muppets was at least nominated for a Critic's Choice Award, it along with the "Star-Spangled Man" were not nominated for Golden Globes. Captain America: The First Avenger was one of my favorite movies of the summer, and I thought that it was decently underrated. In my opinion, the "Star-Spangled Man" was a great song, and I hope that it along with "Life's A Happy Song" are not snubbed when the Academy Award nominations come out. What do you think?
