Quiztastic Vol 1

One of the things that I do that I rather enjoy is run a monthly pub quiz at a very civilised venue in Didsbury. I run it with Eyan and Dan, we do a round each, have a laugh and drink beer - often at the same time, resulting in much spluttering. Eyan has posted his round on famous James' from this month's quiz on his blog here. I have decided to shamelessly follow suit as I did the picture round this month and I am very proud of it.

Using the medium of magic pixie dust I have removed the titles from these posters of the best movies of 2006. Your task gentle reader, is to guess the missing title. No cheating now (and I'll mystically know if you cheat) and the person who gets them all right first will win a prize.*

*no actual prizes on offer

Answers some time later in the week!
*edit - don't look at the comments till you've had a go as the answers are in there!*

Welcome Laurahd!

An excellent effort, way better than anyone on the night. 12 out of 15....

Have a virtual Penguin biscuit:

LauraHD said...

So go on tell us the rest! It's driving me crazy... or do we have to wait till later in the week?

9/10ths Full of Penguins said...

I will majestically unveil the answers on Friday afternoon...

Although, because I am kind, I will give you a clue on one of the ones you're stuck on. It is Sanctus' film for this month I believe

LauraHD said...

OOoooo as soon as I typed that I had a flash of inspiration - is that left hand middle one Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada? And is that one near the bottom right Inside Man?

9/10ths Full of Penguins said...

Sorry, I tell a lie, its the sanctus movie for Feb.

And respectively no and yes...

I want to come to your pub quiz but I couldn't do Eyan's and I couldn't do yours. Has Dan posted his anywhere? I'm only prepared to come to pub quizzes where I can astound people woth my brilliance on at least one question.

9/10ths Full of Penguins said...

Sadly Dan is a less of a geek than myself and Eyan, so he doesn't have a blog.

I may have his music questions somewhere though. If I have I will post them on his behalf...

We do also have a general knowledge round which is easy! Bring a sanctus team to the next one, let us see the emergent church in action ;)
