Thought I'd give you quite a broad question to start with. All correct and pretty much everyone bags themselves a pointless, barring Joe. & SamJudd who tried to bluff and go for a musical actor. One of two main ones and no one opted for Prince, which surprised me. Recency won for me with Anton Yelchin ending up a pointless answer. Yay. His death still plays on my mind and has really struck with me </3 A lot of actors and actresses I'm not too aware of, but I've checked and they're all correct answers. Alan Rickman ended up being a pointless which was quite surprising!

Well that's annoying. I thought I was being smart and end up getting the only answer which gives points. The rest of my answers I stupidly answered as Family Fortunes so that's me out of the game.

Ooh I was quite close to going for Alan for the double-bluff so I'm glad going with Frank instead paid off more. Good start! cheer.gif

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR **INCORRECT** (14)
Regina

ALICE IN WONDERLAND **INCORRECT** (14)
Ultraviolence1989

Hooray. Some points being added up now! Just one pointless answer that round, unsurprising really as it seemed like the most likely option to be pointless. The first, huge 3D film & the highest grossing film of all time, 'Avatar' gets 2 people guessing. Recent box office hit 'Furious 7' ties with the classic 'Titanic' & most recent BO smash 'Star Wars: Force Awakens' with 3 people each answering! Regina flopped though. 'Captain America: Civil War' is #12 and UV also nearly got away with it, but 'Alice In Wonderland' is in fact not top 10 #blamejosh! The other films available to be answers are 'Frozen', 'Jurassic World' & 3 more Marvel films: 'Iron Man 3', 'Avengers' & 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'!

I was close to going with Anton, horrible loss sad.gif

I wavered over choosing some ancient Argentinian actors but decided to play it safe in case their obscure 50s films wouldn't count as feature films. kink.gif

I went with Avatar there as I wasn't sure if the link I was on was definitely right so thought I'd play it safe kink.gif At least it was still low scoring!

A MAN FALLING DOWN SOME STAIRS **INCORRECT** (14)
richie

Of COURSE I had to have a question referring to one of my favourite horror films in recent times. Ethan Hawke's character is writing a crime novel and finds a box in his new home, in the attic. Unbeknownst to him, they're snuff films! All varying shades of "HELL TO THE EFF NO!" However, the most prominent one for me is Lawn Work '86! Where the victims end up getting run over by a, yeah you guessed it, lawnmower. Proving the most popular answer here and providing us with our highest score yet! BBQ Time '79 & Sleepy Time '98 are the two pointless answers here. Everyone else scores points and richie gave an incorrect answer! Sorry!
