Really have no idea how I've done in this, expecting anything between a few Pointlesses & a string of wrong answers laugh.gif

1. Name a movie that has won 'Best Picture' at the Academy Awards since (and including) the year 2000

Slumdog Millionaire (2009)
Jahq

Argo (2013)
Josh

A Beautiful Mind (2002)
Nelly

The Kings Speech (2011)
Johnkm

Chicago (2003)
Tim

No Country For Old Men (2008)
HausofKubrick

The Departed (2007)
randomfurlong

The Artist (2012) (1)
Benzy, Froot

The Hurt Locker (2010) (1)
Dobbo, Leonardo

12 Years a Slave (2014) (1)
Jonjo, Chez Wombat

Million Dollar Baby (2005) (1)
Ultraviolence, Spinning Adam

Crash (2006) (3)
Mack, Rooney, Joe, Acidburn

Gravity *INCORRECT* (19)
Bre

The majority of possible answers were given here, with a couple of exceptions being the current 'Best Picture' holder, Birdman, and Lord Of The Rings: Return of the King which may crop up in the next question.

We have seven pointless answers, a few picking up a single point and Crash, being named by four people. Just randomly picking from the middle of the time period maybe?

Bray makes a good guess, Gravity was of course nominated last year but eventually lost out to 12 Years a Slave.

Oh yay, starting how I hope to go on. I really should watch more of those as they are clearly good movies, so far I've only watched 12 Years a Slave from the whole list and absolutely loved how the story, the script and way it was filmed that just created such a sad atmosphere while watching it so hopefully the rest of the list is just as good.

2. Name a movie from either the Lord Of The Rings, Twilight or Hunger Games franchises

Breaking Dawn: Part 1 (Twilight)
Ultraviolence

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games)
Josh

Mockingjay: Part 2 (The Hunger Games)
Chez Wombat

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug (LOTR)
Joe

The Hunger Games
Nelly

Return of the King (LOTR)
randomfurlong

The Two Towers (LOTR) (1)
Rooney, Tim

Breaking Dawn: Part 2 (Twilight) (1)
Spinning Adam, Bre

Twilight (1)
Leonardo, Froot

New Moon (Twilight) (2)
Jahq, Benzy, Acidburn

Fellowship of the Ring (LOTR) (3)
Dobbo, Jonjo, Mack, HausofKubrick

The Divergent Series: Allegiant Part 1 *INCORRECT* (19)
Johnkm

Six pointless answers here. 'Part 2' appears more popular than 'Part 1' counterparts, Twilight: Eclipse was snubbed and Joe goes for a loophole that I wish I'd closed off. I decided that The Hobbit movies are technically part of the Lord Of The Rings franchise, if only the phrasing of the question had been series

John was wondering whether I'd be accepting movies that have yet to be released, personally I'd be more concerned about naming a movie from a franchise/series that I was asking for tongue.gif

I had the same idea as Chez but decided to go for my favourite film in the end. Not watched any LOTR/Hobbit or Twilight films before which maybe I should change because they're clearly v popular.

At least it wasn't the 1996 auto-erotica film of the same name.

Love Actually, what a wonderful film to watch around Christmas heart.gif Ten possible answers, love is all around for Bill Nighy as he proves most popular. But what can I say for poor Martine McCutcheon who played the love interest for Hugh Grant and ends up being the only one snubbed. kink.gif

I was between Osage county and Julie and Julia for that one so it turns out it wouldn't have made a difference whichever one i went for *.*

And Keira Knightly- the best of the bunch- being pointless *.*

5. Name a movie that has topped the UK Box Office in 2015

Fifty Shades of Grey
Dobbo

Taken 3
Acidburn

Big Hero 6
randomfurlong

Furious 7 (1)
Mack, Rooney

Avengers: Age of Ultron (1)
Chez Wombat, Froot

Jurassic World (1)
Joe, Leonardo

Minions (2)
Benzy, Nelly, Johnkm

Inside Out (2)
Jonjo, Bre, HausofKubrick

Home (4)
Jahq, Ultraviolence, Josh, Spinning Adam, Tim

So animations dominate our top (or is it bottom) 3 here with Home being the highest scorer thus far sob.gif

Our three pointless answers happen to be the first three (out of those named) that topped the box office this year and the three biggest movies of the year so far (unless Minions happens to have already overtaken Furious 7 by now or it may just be on the verge) all score a single point.
