The Movie Game with Guest Host Passionofthemom


Today I have a special surprise (well not a surprise cuz I told you about it on Monday). Passionofthemom is guest posting the movie game. She won the movie game so this is her prize. Now she worked hard on creating these questions so even if you don't know them you should still leave a comment for her. You will be emailing her your answers, not me. Email answers to Passionofthemom@gmail.com. Answers will be posted on Friday.

RULES: I present you with two movies, for example: The Matrix and Miss Congeniality. The object of the game is to link them together to another movie by connecting the actors/actresses. The link in this case is Speed using Keanu Reeves from The Matrix and Sandra Bullock from Miss Congeniality. Another example is: Link Top Gun & The Shining. The answer is A Few Good Men, using Tom Cruise from Top Gun and Jack Nicholson from The Shining. Get it?

Now they all aren't this easy and sometimes there are multiple answers. The questions range from easy to hard and sometimes I like to throw in a challenging one to test those true movie buffs. You earn points for correct answers and I keep track of every one's points on the side of my blog. There is going to be a prize awarded to the winner. Try not to use the Internet. This is a game of memory and skill. I ONLY ACCEPT ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF AN EMAIL, DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWERS IN A COMMENT, LET EVERYONE HAVE A FAIR CHANCE AT PLAYING. EMAIL ANSWERS TO Passionofthemom@gmail.com. GOOD LUCK!!

Easy -- The In-Laws (2003) to EdTV (1 point)

Medium -- Better Off Dead to Beethoven (2 points)

Hard -- Soapdish to Wayne's World (3 points)

Challenge -- The Good Shepherd to Tenacious D in The Pick Of Destiny to Primal Fear (5 points)

Here is the new addition to the game. It's sort of like the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon but instead of using Mr. Bacon I am going to give you 2 random actors/actresses and you have to find the quickest link using movies. For example: Will Smith to Al Pacino. The answer could be: Will Smith in Men in Black with Tommy Lee Jones who is in Batman Forever with Chris O'Donnell who is in Scent of a Woman with Al Pacino. If you finding a quicker link than good for you. The less movies you use, the more points you get.

Link: Anton Yelchin to Justin Bartha

Link: BJ Novak to Kristen Wiig

Points are as follows:
In same movie together: 5 points
Using 2 movies: 4 points
3 movies: 3 points
4 movies: 2 points

Wow! For some reason these all seem hard to me. I like the addition of the 6 degree questions.

Congratulations on winning the game Janet!

Have you ever been so terribly unprepared for a school exam, that you just sat there and looked at the test questions like they were written in Sanskrit? That's me! That's now!

And I don't read Sanskrit...
