0-3: Wrangler
You have enough knowledge about cinema that you can be trusted with all of the stuff on a set that can’t talk. Congratulations!

4-7: Gaffer
Every filmmaker needs electricity to make a movie, right?

8-11: Cinematographer
With the right moves, you might become the Roger Deakin of movie quiz-taking!

12-15: Assistant Director
Your knowledge is impressive, but alas- there is still much to learn before you can make the next level.

16-18: Director
Your movie knowledge is unsurpassed and it’s time to start thinking about a move to the director’s chair.

  1. Yeah Man I am happy with my Cinematographer. That’ll do 🙂

    (this is Custard btw I am trying it out without my moniker)

  2. Dude's Wife

    I’m a Gaffer…..I think I’ve found my calling

  3. This is awesome, John… unfortunately, I only got 4 right… so I guess that’s epic fail, eh? 😀

    • Not at all! After I put it together, I realized that I’d sort of overdone it. I’m starting to think that 4 is a pretty good score and that Custard/Scott is the only one who’s gonna break above that.

    Cinematographer and given the difficulty of this quiz, I’m damn proud of it.

  5. Yep, I’m a Roger Deakins too! I can’t believe I thought that Fighter tagline was Inception! Great quiz, John. Very clever!

  6. 1 shy of Assistant Director! I’ll take Cinematographer. Liked the inclusion of the MALLRATS tagline, I hadn’t seen that one before.

  7. The guy who met Kevin Meany

    A few of these could apply to multiple movies….Where’s Olive?—Popeye. In Little Miss Sunshine, I don’t recall Olive being lost whereas in Popeye, Olive Oil was kidnapped. Yippee Ki Yay all over again could apply to Diehard 3 and Diehard 4. I’m just saying…

  8. Damn, I only got 4: American Beauty, Idiocracy, Groundhog Day and American Pie 😦 This is hard!

  9. MJ

    I only got 6 (3 men, Groundhog Day, Snakes, Bill & Ted, American Pie), but considering I’ve only seen 3 (Groundhog, Bill & Ted, Men in Black) of them (I’m an adolescent), I’m pretty proud of myself. Besides, ‘gaffer’ is fun to say.

  10. Kelly

    I made A.D. Great quiz.

  11. Cinematographer. It’s scary how I remembered some of these taglines.

  12. 50% – not too shabby! I would love more tagline quizes in the future, they’re a lot of fun!
