Movie quiz #2

A few months ago we did a movie quiz with questions written by Vern Snackwell. Thanks Vern! It's time for another quiz! The prize this time will be the book in the photo--Violent Screen by Stephen Hunter. In this collection of film reviews Hunter discusses over 100 films, some he likes (The Wild Bunch, GoodFellas) and some he hates (Blue Velvet, Tombstone). 

Like last time, e-mail me your answers ( and I will post your score in the comment field. Also, no cheating! We're on the honor system here so no going to the computer. This book must be won ethically. The contest will last until July 15th. I think this one is a little tougher than the last one so good luck!

There's a lot of wimps out there afraid to take the quiz? Only three people? Weak.
