The last time I had a chess quiz I confessed that I was a lousy chess player. Since then I’ve been playing a lot of chess online. I haven’t gotten any better. I’m still a lousy chess player. I’m much better at quizzes.

13) The Thing
19) 2001: A Space Odyssey
23) His Kind of Woman
…that’s all I got.
I thought The Thing and 2001 were gimmes. Who can forget Russell pouring his drink into the computer? But good catch for His Kind of Woman! I didn’t see anyone getting that.
“Cheatin’ bitch!” says MacReady. Thing screenwriter Bill Lancaster (Burt’s son) has one of the most understated bios on all of IMDb:
Bill was known by his friends as “Billy”, when he was a youth. He attended “public” school, as many actor’s sons and daughters did in the 1960s. He was never athletic since he was stricken with a childhood disease. He was well liked at Emerson Junior High School in West Los Angeles, California. He graduated from Emerson in June 1962. He was known as a friend to everyone, rich or not. After Emerson, he went on to University High School in Los Angeles.

17) Time After Time
Yes and yes. That’s five in total. Which I think is very respectable. My bar on these is usually 2 or 3.

10) Night Moves
You are on fire!
Didn’t see anyone getting Night Moves. Not much for you to go on there.
