Movie in Three Clues


Happy random quiz Friday. It's summer. What's more summer than movies?

I found this quiz on Mental Floss. They give you three words. You type in the movie title:

Name the Movie in Only Three Clues


A few tips if you haven't tried a Mental Floss quiz before: 
  1. You don't have to answer in order. If the first one you know is somewhere in the middle, just type in the correct answer for that one. It'll automatically fill in the correct blank.
  2. Don't worry about capitalizing anything. 
  3. You can leave out "the" or "a".
  4. A partial title will work, but only if the movie is commonly referred to as that title, such as typing in "Star Wars". The program will automatically turn it into "Star Wars: A New Hope". 
  5. But, you must spell it correctly. One letter off and it won't read it as correct. 
I missed three. One of which I should have known. (The other two... They weren't coming to me.) Which is 90%. Did you do better?

  1. That was a fun quiz, I'm going to send it to hubby; he'll do better than me. I got 9/30 and gave up. I knew the movies they were talking about for some, just couldn't think of the names of them :)

  2. That was tougher than I thought. I missed a bunch. With a lot of them I knew what movie it was, I just could not for the life of me remember the title.

    1. Your head has to be in the right space, I think, for some of these quizzes.

    1. Many of these movies are iconic. I'm sure you've seen many of them.

  5. I only got 25 out of 30. Three of them I never saw, and one I just totally didn't get because I don't think "emotions" when I hear 2001: A Space Odyssey. I do however feel proud of myself for getting The Deer Hunter when I've only ever seen it as a reference on The Simpsons.

    1. Grrrr! Is Blogger being difficult? I've been toying with the idea of installing a third party comment section, but I'm not sure if that won't just exacerbate the problem.

    1. That one's getting several commenters. Funny. That's one of the ones I got. Although, I didn't catch it until the third or fourth pass.

  13. I tried. I think I hurt my brain. I got a beer. My brain still hurts. But, I don't care as much.

  14. I got 15/30, which I guess wasn't too bad since I had only seen one of the movies I missed.

  15. I missed quite a bit more than I thought I would...guess I need to have some movie marathons to improve my skills ;)

    1. Yeah, you have to be in the right frame of mind for these sorts of things.

  17. LOL Nope. I am TERRIBLE at that. I got 9 of them. 10 but it said one was wrong though it wasn't. A few I missed I did know I just couldn't place but there were some I never would have figured out.
