Will it be much longer before books go the way of phone booths and pyjamas, not to be seen outside of old movies? That’s the way things seem to be heading. So let’s take a moment to recognize the importance of the printed word. See how many of these movies you can identify by their covers.

If I ever see anything to do with Terminal again, I’ll scream. So what is a book anyway? If my ipad got stiuck on one page, would that be the same as a book? This is easier than usual because there’s actual information to read, but theres a few tricky ones. Number 9 foxing me…
No, if your iPad gets stuck on one page it’s just an expensive piece of e-waste. And Robbie was good in Terminal, which was quite an accomplishment.
Given that Robbie is good in most things, I wonder is Terminal is worth another look. Remember it being desperate at the time, but was a fan of everything from I Tonya to Promising Young Woman, so she’s got something going on….
Well come on, what are your other guesses?
Basic Instinct, Limitless, Poltergesist, come on, nothing to tax us here…
Number 1 isn’t Basic Instinct, 2 isn’t Limitless. These have to be numbered.
Fake news. Correct answers! Not counted! Massive dumps! Stop the count! I win! Witch hunt!
4 out of 25 isn’t really that impressive is it? And you work in the business! Should be ashamed really.
Don’t want to ruin it for the enthusiastic amateurs like yourself; wouldn’t be right for me to just rattle through the correct answers, would it? WOULD IT?
Well duh! I’d rattle them all off if I knew them, so those with less knowledge would be edumacated, instead of being all hoity toity ‘I know but am not sharing with the likes of you’. Sharing is caring!
made to be broken. My answers were right, droopy-drawers doesn’t want to admit that I ACED his quiz!
How do you know he has droopy drawers?
That’s private between me and Alex. But his public demaenour is also a droopy-drawers, so it’s not indiscreet to say it…
I’m rubbish at these. I think 24 was the Bond movie set in Japan. 🤣🤣
You are good at these! You got one, and this is not an easy quiz!
Haha you are too kind, instant Japanese is a big give away.
She got half of one? You don’t have to be a flippin’ rocket scientist to know that a book by someone called Tennenbaums might come from The Royal Tennenbaums. Or have seen Rosemary’s Baby. Stop flattering malcontents like fraggle and hail the genuis of film eminating from Bonnie Scotland! Pfft! Blerk!
You’re just making up names now. Flailing wildly.
You’re just in denail because you’ve been outsmarted! You KNOW that I’m right! Landslide victory! Everyone knows I clearly won!
De nail is something struck with de hammer. I’m not sure you’ve seen any of these movies. I think of myself as a great educator of uncouth Caledonians though, so I will persevere.
Look, Bunty, if I had to correct every typo in your ramblings, I’d be here all day. So just accept that I aced your quiz, anything else is just fantasy on your part….
The computer has graded your assignment and given you an F. And that’s not for Fantasy.
Well, at least you spelled colour right.
Let’s have a look.
Not in any meaningful way.
6) The Royal Tenenbaums
10) Rosemary’s Baby
Alex, I miss the pre-troll days of your quizzes.
I respect your appreciation of the rules Tom! And all of these are correct. You are the big winner, thus far.
Is he calling me a troll????
I don’t think so.
OK I won’t offer to fight him then.
He probably meant Ol’10, couldn’t disagree if he did.
