01. Name a film that finished in my top 10 of 2015.

'Me & Earl And The Dying Girl' **POINTLESS**
Ultraviolence1989

'Kingsman: A Secret Service' **POINTLESS**
J▲hq

'Ant-Man' (1)
Acidburn; Mack

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' (2)
Jonjo; Joe.; Regina

'Inside Out' (2)
Josh Josh Binks; Chez Wombat; HausofTroye

'Spy' **INCORRECT** (11)
Dobbo


Here is the first question and we have two pointless answers. One being my absolute favourite film of last year with 'Kingsman' and the second one being 7th place, 'Me & Earl And The Dying Girl', so congratulations to the two moderators for winning this round! 3 other answers, 2 of which are Marvel films. The under appreciated 'Ant-Man' and the film which ended up being my 2nd favourite film of the year, 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'.

The correct answer that scored the most points was the incredibly genius, beautiful and emotional as well as the first of two Disney Pixar films of the year, 'Inside Out'. But poor Dobbo. Going for a complete guess and misfiring completely by not only going for a film I've not seen in full, but also a film I actively avoided due to Melissa McCarthy AND Jason Statham.

Nobody seemed to go for 'Star Wars', 'Mad Max' or 'Big Hero 6' though!

The full list can be seen HERE btw. Feel free to add your own!

02. Name a full length feature film that Disney Pixar have CONFIRMED for a future release (i.e. one that hasn't yet been released & has a title)

'Toy Story 4' **POINTLESS**
Dobbo

'Cars 3' **POINTLESS**
Chez Wombat

'Finding Dory' (3)
Jonjo; J▲hq; Joe.; Regina

'Coco' (4)
Acidburn; Ultraviolence1989; Josh Josh Binks; Mack; HausofTroye


Onto the next question and I really couldn't do a round of movies pointless without a Disney Pixar question. This time I asked you all to name me a film that had been confirmed for release, that hadn't been released yet. Dobbo & Chez both scored pointless this round with their pretty "risky but paid off" answers. 'Toy Story 4' which is scheduled for a 2018 release and 'Cars 3' which is pencilled in for 2017!

This years Pixar release 'Finding Dory', which is a sequel based on one of Pixar's best loved films (and one of my all time favourites) 'Finding Nemo'. Scores 4 members, 3 points! But the biggest and most popular answer comes courtesy of 'Coco'. Another ORIGINAL Pixar story which is scheduled for a 2017 release too! It's set to be directed by Lee Unkrich ('Toy Story 3') and (according to wiki) "Coco is about a spirited 12-year-old Mexican boy named Miguel, who lives with a big family in rural Mexico and discovers a generational mystery revolving around Día de los Muertos that will change his life.". Exciting, but it cost 5 members points, as they each score 4 points!

03. Name one of my favourite actors (someone who's name would drag me to watch a film)

Kevin Spacey **POINTLESS**
Jonjo

Joseph Gordon-Levitt **POINTLESS**
Josh Josh Binks

Chris Pratt **POINTLESS**
Chez Wombat

Leonardo DiCaprio (1)
Dobbo; HausofTroye

Ryan Gosling (1)
Acidburn; Joe.

Michael Fassbender (1)
Ultraviolence1989; J▲hq

Colin Firth **INCORRECT** (11)
Mack

Sebastian Stan **INCORRECT** (11)
Regina.


A question in which, I admit, I probably had the upper-hand over most of you, but it's not like I've not expressed my love for Kevin Spacey over this forum before. We also have two more members with a pointless score as both Josh & Chez go for some fairly inspired choices. The turning point for Pratt for me was obviously 'Guardians Of the Galaxy' and for Joseph, it was ever since I saw him in '(500) Days Of Summer'!

Dobbo & Haus both go for my all time fave (and currently Oscar-less) Leo DiCaprio! 'Inception' and most notably 'Shutter Island' were the deciding factors for me! Ryan Gosling & Fassbender are also answers, but not pointless ones as they score points for those members! Mack probably had the 'Kingsman' is fave film of the year, so Colin Firth might be a fave... but in all honesty, as charming as ol' Firth can be, 'Kingsman' was the first film which really peaked my interest in him and he was more than an actor "for the oldies". Poor Regina. Trying to make Sebastian happen. I like him, but he isn't what pulls me in to see a film.

04. An actor or actress, who has already appeared in 2 or more Star Wars films. (NOT characters and not including future SW films...)

Peter Mayhew **POINTLESS**
Jonjo

Samuel L Jackson **POINTLESS**
Dobbo

Alec Guinness **POINTLESS**
Acidburn

Billy Dee Williams **POINTLESS**
Joe.

Joel Edgerton **POINTLESS**
Regina

Eric Bauersfeld **POINTLESS**
HausofTroye

Mark Hamill (1)
Chez Wombat; Mack

Carrie Fisher (2)
Ultraviolence1989; Josh Josh Binks; J▲hq


I'm really surprised more people didn't opt to go for actors in costumes as opposed to "real life" characters. Chewbacca manages to score me a pointless! Samuel L Jackson also manages to score a pointless score for Dobbo and Regina gets one for a very, very well thought answer in, JOEL EDGERTON! Really impressed me with that guess for some reason lol! Luke Skywalker himself only gets 1 point for both Chez & Mack and obviously on Buzzjack, Princess Leia is the one to score the most points, scoring 2 points each to the moderators and Josh!

Nobody decides to go for Harrison Ford though. Maybe everyone thought he'd be an obvious answer! Also Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen and Darth Vader himself, David Prowse didn't manage to become answers!

05. Name a song which has WON the Oscar for "Best Original Song".

'Man Or Muppet' (The Muppets) **POINTLESS**
Jonjo

'I Just Called To Say I Love You' (The Woman In Red) **POINTLESS**
Acidburn

'Baby It's Cold Outside' (Neptune's Daughter) **POINTLESS**
Josh Josh Binks

'Say You, Say Me' (White Nights) **POINTLESS**
Mack

'Glory' (Selma) **POINTLESS**
J▲hq

'It Might As Well Be Spring' (State Fair) **POINTLESS**
Joe.

'My Heart Will Go On' (Titanic) **POINTLESS**
Regina

'Let It Go' (Frozen) (1)
Dobbo; Ultraviolence1989

'Colours Of The Wind' (Pocahontas) (1)
Chez Wombat; HausofTroye


This is one question I wish I re-asked and thought about a bit more. It was far too broad a question and I'm just surprised that there were TWO answers, that weren't "Pointless". Poor flops. Some incredibly inspired answers here though. Notably Joe. & Mack. Regina risking it by going for one of the biggest songs of all time, let alone Oscar winner and even Ultraviolence1989's fave got a mention as John Legend manages to help 'Glory' score as a pointless answer for J▲hq.

'Let It Go' is one of the biggest Disney songs of all time and if I was to guess a song that'd not be pointless, I guessed it would be this. A great song all round though! Chez and Bal, both clash in their answer as they go for another Disney classic, 'Colours Of The Wind' from the movie 'Pocahontas'!

06. Name a David Fincher film.

'Zodiac' **POINTLESS**
Ultraviolence1989

'The Social Network' **POINTLESS**
Josh Josh Binks

'The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button' **POINTLESS**
Chez Wombat

'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' **POINTLESS**
J▲hq

'Full Frontal' **POINTLESS**
Regina

'Alien 3' (1)
Acidburn; HausofTroye

'Se7en' (2)
Jonjo; Mack; Joe.

'I Am David Fincher' **INCORRECT** (11)
Dobbo


I was always gonna have a question about my favourite director! He's supposed to be a tough director to work with, but boy does it pay off! Everything is always precise and dark with him and he's such a perfectionist! 'Zodiac' kicked us off with a pointless for UV! His most underrated film I think. His more "tame" movies in 'The Social Network' & 'Curious Case...' also manage to score pointless along with 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' remake and Regina manages to find a successful loophole! With the question, I meant "directed by David Fincher", but I was stupid and didn't specify, so he scores a pointless for being a clever little sod!

His most notoriously bad film and his best/one of the VERY best films of all time are the ones to score points! 'Alien 3' is known for being dreadful, but he is not at fault for that. 'Se7en' is one of the most critically acclaimed and appreciated films of our time and it's absolutely fantastic. It's my favourite film of all time <3 And it is Kevin Spacey's best role to date!

Poor Dobbo for scoring incorrectly and saying "I Am David Fincher". I'm surprised NOBODY went for either 'Fight Club' or 'Gone Girl'!
