Quiz: It’s Clobberin’ Time!

Welcome to the Over-The-Shoulder quiz! We’ve got another request this week, and it’s a good one: superheroes. It’s not an area I delve into that often, so I haven’t a clue if this quiz is gonna be any good at all, but, hopefully, it should be fun. As always, just name the film that the character or place features in.

But enough of my rambling. Here are the answers of last week’s quiz – it was a tough one, so I’m pretty impressed that 23 out of 25 answers were gotten!

ANSWERS:

  1. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
  2. American Psycho
  3. The Grand Budapest Hotel
  4. 22 Jump Street
  5. Mad Men
  6. Falling Down
  7. Wall Street (to be fair, that one was impossible)
  8. Ratatouille
  9. Pulp Fiction
  10. Midnight in Paris
  11. Tootsie
  12. Nashville
  13. Cocktail
  14. Goodfellas
  15. The Godfather
  16. Reservoir Dogs
  17. Good Omens
  18. Bad Times at the El Royale
  19. The Great Outdoors
  20. Lady and the Tramp (2019)
  21. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  22. The Blues Brothers
  23. Serendipity
  24. Big Night
  25. The Simpsons (One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish)

This one should be interesting to see how you do. For fans of this genre, it should be a breeze. Y’know, not to put the pressure on. Good luck!

And that’s a wrap! Last week, we had a very impressive debut performance from Experience Film, who managed to nab the win in a close run thing. This one could be even closer! The glaring hole made by Fraggle’s absence has left things blown wide open…

    1. I promise you, I searched everywhere: “Alex taking out the bins”; “Community bin man”; “Aberfoyle garbage disposal” – but, for some unfathomable reason, Google had nothing. Nowt.

      1. Huh. Well, I’ll have to see about that. Might be as hard as finding a team picture of the B-field Buttcoks though. Now there’s a t-shirt for any football fan’s collection.

        1. Pics, or it didn’t happen! I think a wise person once said that. I mean, have you ever even taken out your bins before? Perhaps it’s all an elaborate lie… Perhaps, it’s all in your head…

          The collector is incomplete without a Buttcok shirt. It’s the prized possession of anyone who can get their (usually very wealthy) hands on it. I suppose you saw I was banned from Dix’s for a week. Y’know, we should start a club.

        2. “What is this? Is this not the U.K.? This is not Blanefield! This is not Aberfoyle! This is not the place where they promote taut buttcoks! This is the U.K.!”

    1. Upon reflection, here’s a couple do overs and more:
      12) Guardians of the Galaxy?
      15) The crow, after thinking about it.
      17) Is that Swamp Thing? Holy smokes, I never would have guessed that without the superhero prompt!
      21) Looks like a pixar movie, so the Incredibles? but I don’t recognize that scene and since I haven’t seen the Incredibles 2, I’m going with that
      And that’s draining the well dry!

    1. First of all: yes, The Mask is a superhero! He can change his face and stuff! Sigh.

      Anyway, your score… 10 out of 15! Not bad at all. The wrong answers were 1, 11 (I needed the specific name), 13, 18 and 22…

  4. Yikes, I’m not at all as knowledgeable about superheroes as I though – which is possibly a blessing – and even less well informed on the cartoon front since I’ve stopped going to animated features since probably Toy Story 99. But you have captured some fascinating images here – 15, 17 and 24. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thank you Brian! Always a pleasure. I hardly know anything about superheroes either, but this was a fun one to put together. I like to think I know more about animated films, but like you, I don’t think I’ve watched one in years.

  6. I’m not really up on superheroes either (or cartoons …) but as no one else is, I’ll have a bash.
    1. This is definitely a film with Spiderman in it! That’s all I can say for sure. I don’t think its a Tobey Maguire one. Is it The Amazing Spiderman?
    2. I don’t remember this scene, but it must surely be from the 1989 Batman.
    3. The Mask
    4. Ooh, Liv Tyler in a wet shirt. Hmm … what was the question again? Oh, I remember, superheroes. Is it (wild guess) The Incredible Hulk? Was she in that?
    5. Obviously an Ant Man film. Haven’t seen either of them, so I’ll say, er, Ant Man.
    6. This is the infamous, the notorious, the series-ending Batman and Robin.
    7. Think this could be the 1978 Superman.
    8. Oh dear. I think this is a Marvel thing, but he doesn’t have his own movie does he? Wild, wild guess – Avengers: Endgame.
    9. I think this is The Dark Knight.
    10. Obviously Hellboy, I think it’s from the first one.
    11. Another wild guess – Batman Mask of the Phantasm
    12. Well it looks like a spaceship, so for another random guess I’ll say Guardians of the Galaxy (do they count as superheroes?)
    13. Must be The Toxic Avenger
    14. This is quite annoying because I think I recognise this. Is it Dr Strange?
    15. The Crow?
    16. No idea!
    17. It’s not Swamp Thing is it?
    18. Megamind?
    19. Is this Guardians of the Galaxy???
    20. No idea, but it looks like fun.
    21. Incredibles? (don’t think it is though)
    22. Looks a bit like Jennifer Lawrence. Is it Dark Phoenix?
    23. Genuinely no idea
    24. Oh my God, what is this? Wild, wild guess: Monsters vs Aliens
    25. No idea.
    Well, that went well!

    1. Thanks for playing! Much appreciated.

      Your score? The grand total of… 13! Not a bad score at all, especially if you don’t specialise in the subject. I’m sure you want to know your wrong answers, so: 1, 5, 8, 13, 19, 21, 22 and 24… I think that is enough to put you in joint second! Well played!
