Hold On To Your Butts! The 3rd Monthly Movie Quiz at Duke's @ Komedia

O.K. folks. For some reason I missed the March quiz but they are now going to be on the first Thursday of every month. Movie buffs required, any takers?

Get there early is my advice as they had to turn people away from the last one.

Meet in the upstairs bar.

    Very obtuse quiz designed for the more nerdy section of film buffs. Also needed a gay male chorus to help with one of the musical lines round

    Not bad but not great. Too many dull questions-- e.g. they give a character name and what film is it from? No talking point to questions like that. Better questions were like 'in what film did Kubrick use a lens he got from NASA?'-- the name of Kubrick provokes discussion, memory of his films. The movie quotes were pretty obscure too. Yes, they have some regular buffs and 'Of all the gin joints in all the world she walks into mine' is too simple, but a better midway between famous and obscure could be struck, considering how popular this quiz has turned out to be. I would go again but they could make a better night out of it with a bit more thought to the the quiz. They must sell a lot of drinks so it would seem worth it for them to do so.

    The good news is, we didn't come last. Frankly, that is pretty much all the good news. Six of us had a pretty good time and the consensus seems to be that we will give it another go next month - watch this space.

    Right folks,
    It is brilliant that this is proving so popular BUT people need to be aware of two things.
    1) The place was absolutely packed last time we went, I think we had one stool between us and were perched on the end of the side bar thingy by the door. If you want to sit down you'll have to get there early - we won't be able to hold a table! the quiz starts at 7.00 so get there for 6.30 at the latest is my advice.
    2) If we all come I think they'd make us split into two teams - which would obviously be fantastic, especially if we cheated.

    We also need some good ideas for a name as there is a prize for that even if you get every question wrong. Can I propose, to get the ball rolling, "F**k it, that's your answer to everything!"


    See you all on the 4th if not before.

    Colin

      Hi Richard,

      I MUST remember not to press return! Not sure exactly what you mean but the quiz is held in the upstairs bar with teams of various sizes. People get food and/or drink as and when they feel inclined, it is all fairly laid back. It isn't a knock out competition if that is what you mean and you don't have to answer anything on your own.
