You’re up against it with this quiz. Literally, up against the glass. So I’ll even help you out with a bit of a hint, though I’m sure you won’t need it. One director is responsible for three of the movies represented here! You might almost call it a signature motif. Now the rest should be easy!

Is is Gnomeo and Juliet or Sherlock Gnomes?
Definitely one or t’other. But I already gave one clue for this quiz and I’m not giving any more!
I’m beginning to see a gnomic pattern….
Surely 9 could be ANY Resident Evil movie?
Could be, yes, but there is only one that it is! How easy do you want me to make these for you?
I’m just saying, if I show you a pic of, say, a leprechaun, and ask you which film is comes from, it could be any from the boxed-set, right? There has to be a clue which pins down which film it comes from. Or an Ewok, that could be from any Ewok-related film, right?
Actually, you may even see a leprechaun here:
But in order to complete the quiz you’ll have to work your way through the entire box set. I’m not just giving you the answers!
It’s number 15, that’s the Lep! what have I won?
No, 16, got the pictures the wrong way up!
No, it was 15, you had it right the first time. And you get nothing, not even a set of steak knives, because you can’t just identify an actor or character. You have to correctly name the movie.
*sigh* I can’t believe I’m explaining the rules of a quiz.
Ok, 15 is Leprechaun, right? That’s the name of the movie? So what have I won?
No, the Leprechaun did not go to a bar in the first movie. The only prize that seems fitting for such a wild guess is a box of old VHS tapes I have lying around that I have taped over several times and which are now just anthologies of ’80s television programs.
I’ll take the cash alternative, then. Right series of films=right answer.
The cash alternative to the box of tapes = you owe me money.
What kind of competition is this? Find out how much it’ll cost to send me the box, then just send me the cash. No messing about.
Since so far you have only provided one incorrect answer, your account is currently in debt. I’ll just have to hold on to the tapes. Which may be a good idea anyway because I’m no longer sure what all is on them.
I’ve got a good idea what’s on them. Little Irish gnomes with big hats. Am I right?
No, the Lep was a CD-ROM guy.
BTW, I just noticed that your earlier Resident Evil guess was also off the mark because you got the number wrong (the number of the picture is above the picture, as the header picture has no number). So technically you are 0/2.
Are there participation prizes?
Everybody goes home a winner around here.
What about Jennifer Anniston?
She survived, and got out with her dignity intact.
So has anyone aced your quiz, got them all?
Nope. I think there was one a while back that got 20 out of 25, but that was more than one person. So far none of them has been completed.
And what did they win?
Since nobody has completed a quiz, I haven’t had to determine that yet. But surely the pride of accomplishment is its own prize?
But if I say Lep 4, you could say, no it’s Lep 6. or I say Resident Evil 2, and you say Resident Evil 6. It’s a rigged game! Impossible to win!
I would never cheat like that. There is a correct answer for every image!
I heard there were Korean battleships dropping off massive dumps of correctly described images, it’s so sad, this quiz was compromised and corrupted, it’s all fake news!
The joke’s on you, because the real fake news was that report out of Korea. The other was fake fake news. You were taken in by the Deep Fake.
Curses, foiled again. And I know who is behind this ruse….
Hmm I think David Niven in Casino Royal, Rowan Atkinson in Bean, and Tom Cruise in Oblivion but not sure on that. That’s all I got apart from resident evil which Ol’10 already called.
Yeah, but Eddie didn’t know *which* Resident Evil it was. So he got zero points.
I am beyond impressed at how you got Bean from that blurry image. Is Atkinson’s mug that recognizable?
BTW, you have to number these! I’m giving you credit for
3) Casino Royale
8) Resident Evil
Very good, but not quite the full pot of gold!
Yes Atkinson came straight to mind, or rather Bean did.
20) Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
25) The Graduate
All good, Tom!
These quizzes are so odd. Nobody has gotten the one I would have picked as the easiest . . .
15) The King of Comedy
Yep, that’s another.
That’s the one I was waiting for!
Sorry for doing this in dribbles.
7) The Master
Good catch on that one.
