Film School Friday Lesson #15 - End of Term Quiz!


Last week, Film School Friday taught loyal readers how to invade the planet earth in a misguided attempt to defend the human race from invasion. Fingers crossed, angry alien forces didn't read that feature because if they did, then we're screwed. Oh and by the way, my alien overlords wanted me to let you know that you shouldn't worry. Enforced slavery won't begin until at least 2015 as they need to work out some kinks in their mind control technology. Reassuring news I'm sure you'll agree....

It's coming towards the end of our first term together here at Film School Friday, so I thought it was time to give all my loyal readers (hey Mum!) a treat. A film themed party would be great right?... except I'm not dealing with the clean up. What about a M Night Shyamalan marathon?... The first few hours would be awesome but then I'd have to mercy kill each and every one of you by the time The Happening comes on. Now what does everyone love most about the end of term? It can't be the holidays... I got it, a pop quiz! So sharpen your pencils, pick holes in your rubbers and get your paper airplanes ready for today's lesson.

Lesson #15 - End of Term Quiz

The quiz will work like this; Each question will relate to a previous edition of Film School Friday and will have three possible answers. For each correct answer you give, you will receive one point. The answers will be revealed at the end of the quiz. Once you've tallied your score, please tell me what you got in the comment section below. Now remember, participation is mandatory but prizes are not. Lucky for you then that the winner will instead receive the respect and adoration of my million plus readership.

Now don't think of this as a test to check whether any of you have actually bothered to read any of the previous articles in this feature. Think of it as a way to prove your superior knowledge over your fellow film lovers and revel in your own brilliance.  Cheating will result in a lifetime ban from Film School Friday Quizzes so think very carefully before you do so. I'm not saying I have surveillance on each and every one of you but I was one of the Spy Kids growing up. Keep it in mind.

If you got less than five right, you should be thoroughly ashamed. Go self flagellate yourself or whatever the kids do these days.

If you answered between six and ten questions correctly, that's better, but you still need to go back and memorise every Film School Friday word for word. Personally, I couldn't think of a more fun punishment then that so don't complain or I'll make you read every Twilight book instead. Scratch that. I'll make you read every Twilight parody book. New Moan is my fave.

Finally, if you managed to answer more than ten correctly, then congratulations! You now have permission to join my film cult. We meet on Fridays. Bring natchos. If by some miracle you got every single question right, then don't be so keen. No one likes a teachers pet. Pretend you got one wrong so the cool kids still like you.

Thank you for taking part in my mandatory quiz this week and don't forget to post your scores below! The winner will receive the kind of self esteem that money just can't buy. If that's not enough though, come back next week for a special Christmas edition of Film School Friday where we'll be learning something...Christmassy. I haven't worked out the specifics yet... don't rush me!
