Movie Trivia Challenge for Week of 12/14

December 14, 2010

“Shall we play a game?”

And with that simple question, we shall now engage in the online, movie trivia equivalent of thermonuclear warfare!

Here’s a recap of the rules:

  • Email your answers to
  • The deadline is Thursday 12/16, 2010 @ 8 PM EST.
  • You only have to get one letter correct to win, and your name will be entered into the next prize drawing.
  • If you are the first to get the answer to me for a letter, you’ll receive an honorable mention in Friday’s post.
  • There will be one WINNER per letter.
  • Anyone who enters a correct answer for any letter, whether they are a top winner or not, will have their name entered into the next prize drawing.
  • You can submit an answer for each letter in this week’s word.
  • Your name will be entered into the prize drawing for every correct answer you submit.

Of course, only those who submit their answers first (before the deadline of Thursday 12/09 8 PM EST) will get the public kudos and the ego-boosting knowledge that they are a member of Team Awesome, possessing an almost supernatural power to identify VHS box art!

One Final Note

The prize drawings will now occur once every quarter rather than once a month. This ensures the prizes are of a higher quality and that more people will have the opportunity to enter and win!

So, there you have the new game “rules”. If you have any questions, are confused about the new game play, or generally want to vent your frustrations as you scour the Inter-Webs searching for the answers, please leave a comment below or email me at Remember ALL answers are due by Thursday, December 14, 2010 at 8 PM (EST) and must be emailed to to count!

Now that you know how to play, here’s your word for the week courtesy of Mr. Dale Lloyd (remember to check him out on Twitter @VivaVHS):

Good luck, and remember, a flick is only forgotten if you’re not talking about it!

    I hate to say this, but I’m completely at a loss here… At least right now! It might change, you never know, but it doesn’t look good!

    • Hey man, don’t give up! This one is definitely difficult, and if need be I’ll give out a few hints tomorrow (especially since I’ve only had one correct answer submitted!).

  2. Okay, here are some hints to help everyone out:

    W = John Travolta could buck with the best of them.

    O = If you’ll ‘meet me halfway,’ I’ll take you for a ride in my big rig.

    P = Boooooooooooooooooooy!

    R = She’s a real beauty. She’s pristine. But if you piss her off, you’re dead, ’cause her name’s…

    That oughta do it! 🙂

  3. Damn it, i’ve only just got seen this and got 3 straight off!
