5. Fill in the blank: X-Men: First Class is typical _____ _____ that Zeppo wouldn't watch in a million years.

6. Fill in the blank: iCM is run by Erik, Piet, and Marijn, also known as "The _____".

11. The main character of It's a Wonderful Life likes to listen to music, but who is his favorite musician of all time?

I think Russian films here is supposed to be short films.

I don't know the answer to the first two questions, but they're not really forum questions anyway.

I'm pretty sure he's seen more Russian films than anyone else on the forum, so it's still correct. I didn't say that it would be the best possible match for each person.

I've watched more anime films than themagician, and themagician has watched more Japanese films than me, so your answer was correct (but it's true that both of us have watched a lot of both).

Edit: To clarify more: I think Rad82 is the only forum member who has seen nearly as many anime films as me (but Rad82 has watched a lot more anime series than me).

For the last question, actually what I meant was total checks (both official and unofficial). I edited my post to clarify that.

I think we should add one more question:

According to Mightysparks, which film is in the same league of Ed Wood's Plan 9?

That could be applied to any film I've rated 1/10. I've used the Plan 9 comparison many times.

What about "According to Mightysparks, which critically acclaimed film in the TSPDT top 100 is in the same league of Ed Wood's Plan 9?"

Nope, I guess that too has multiple answers.

I've only rated 1 film in the top 100 1/10. The whole point of the Plan 9 comparison is that a film I rate 1/10 has NO REDEEMING QUALITIES. Except that Plan 9 is one of my 1/10s which is universally considered as having no redeeming qualities.
According to Mightysparks, which one of the following films are scary?
1. The Shining
2. A Nightmare on Elm Street
3. Psycho

5. Tokyo Story
Tokyo Story isn't scary, it's just crap. I don't know why this thread has come back around to me again. Please obsess about someone else.

Because picking on you for not liking acclaimed movies is one of the things people do on this forum.

Suggesting Mighty's well-known quirks of taste might be part of a 'how well do you know the forum?' quiz is by no means picking on Mighty. You and she have apparently chosen to take it that way, but one could just as easily take it as affectionate tribute to someone who's a major fixture on this forum, especially given the context.

That's what I meant, that picking on her for her tastes is a notable part of the forum so it's no surprise that it comes up. I think mighty sees the very fact that her quirks of taste are well known and a fixture of this forum as a negative, though. She quite a bit less vocal about disliking things than she was several years ago, but we all still bring it up.

Wait, wasn't themagician part of the anime fansub/release scene? I seem to remember a post from him describing in great detail the work involve in getting the newest episode of [series] subbed, checked and posted online. Or maybe I'm mis-remembering.

mjf314 - Japanese films; themagician - anime

Armoreska hs more checks than anyone in the Multiverse.

As I said to mighty: Although it's true that I've seen a lot of Japanese films and themagician has seen a lot of anime films, the correct answer was the reverse.

Actually blueboybob has more checks than Armoreska, but he's not on the first page of members, so your answer is correct.

Wait, wasn't themagician part of the anime fansub/release scene? I seem to remember a post from him describing in great detail the work involve in getting the newest episode of [series] subbed, checked and posted online. Or maybe I'm mis-remembering.

That might be true, I don't remember, but the "correct" answer that I had in mind was based on how much each person has watched. I'll edit the question to clarify that. Also, the question was specifically about anime films, not anime in general. If it was anime in general, then Rad82 has watched about 3 times as much anime as me and Armoreska has watched slightly more than me (in terms of total time). I don't know how much anime in general themagician has watched.

Edit: I found this post by themagician about translating American TV series to Finnish, but he doesn't say anything about translating anime.
Edit: I numbered the questions.

It looks like 9 was one of the harder ones. I guess it's easier for people who have seen the film. I recognized monty when I watched it, and then I never forgot the scene.

Too lazy to type it out...
Don't know 1 and 3, know the rest.

I'm surprised even some regulars have missed the enormous amount of repetitive jokes about my alter ego.
Well, I guess my alter ego and myself are the only once making them still and the rest is fed up with it. :lol:

Well, I guess, that in-joke is not too well known outside the Film WC section.

I think mjf should add this one:
Who are the No.1 fans of Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung on this forum respectively?

joachimt actually has 2 alternate identities. He also happens to be the guy who directed this film.

"Which director is Arthur's alter ego?"

ambiguous. he's one of two. depends on the lighting. and how much vodka and time sculpting he's had that day.

Because picking on you for not liking acclaimed movies is one of the things people do on this forum.
I could redirect some of the member's butthurt if it relieves mightysparks of some stress. I'm good at disliking acclaimed movies.
