Note: The answers I remember are included in the comments (I am not going to take the time to look up answers from a game I played a few days ago). Also, though I “try” to include the answers for all of these games, occasionally I may get too busy and forget to do it right away 🙂
Team ‘Pods – including myself and Mike and team Sparty On (Kimberly, Brent) – merged for a “virtual double trivia date” Friday night and attempted to answer a bunch of questions about ’90s movies. The result were some questions we were overly excited to answer because “OMG I KNOW THAT,” “Oh, I never even SAW that movie,” and “Why didn’t we listen to the answer that Mike blurted out when the mic was on for the entire group and put that one down? 🙂
As always, it was a fun way to reminisce about the movies we actually saw – and enjoyed! Even if it meant making up inappropriate alternate titles, such as “Saving Ryan’s Privates.”
1. Taglines – “Love is in the Hair” is a tagline used by what comedy, released in 1998? One of the rejected names I’ve suggested for 90s movies trivia teams in the past was “Is that hair gel?”
2. Producer-Directors – Steven Spielberg served as producer AND director of only three films in the 1990s. Name two of those three films. Big miss, should’ve listened to Mike…
3. Bond – Who plays 006 in the 1995 film GoldenEye? Kim didn’t know who this guy was, but Brent had a vague idea, and commence Mike talking about one of the best movie death scenes ever involving this actor (who would not travel by helicopter for his location scenes in one of the movie franchises he was in, meaning he opted to scale mountains on foot rather than get into a helicopter – how bad ass is this)! Bad ass? Or just a fear of flying? You say potato…
4. Rom Coms – Melvin Udall and Carol Connelly are the main characters in what romantic comedy, the sixth-highest grossing film of 1997 at the domestic box office?
5. Gotta Go Fast – What form of transportation is the focus of the 1997 film Speed 2: Cruise Control?
6. Sequels -The 1992 Disney film Aladdin spawned two direct-to-video sequels. Name either of those films.
7. Kids – Give the first name of either of Peter’s children in the 1991 film Hook. Nope, none of us ever saw this or paid enough attention if we did see it… Though Mike did read Peter Pan a couple of years ago after I “assigned” it to him for trivia purposes (he enjoyed it, reading the book wasn’t a “chore” for him)! He talked at length about how Tinkerbell hated Wendy so much that she tried to kill her…
8. Quotes – What 1999 film features the following lines? “You thought she didn’t come see you dance. She did. She hid in the back so you wouldn’t see. She said you were like an angel. She said you came to the place where they buried her, asked her a question. She said the answer is ‘Every day.’”
9. Habits – In addition to Whoopi Goldberg’s character, who was disguised as Sister Mary Clarence, three nuns in the 1992 classic Sister Act have names that begin with Sister Mary. Give the second name used by any of those three characters. Nope all around…
10. Title Characters – Christopher Lloyd, Christina Ricci, and Jimmy Workman portray secondary characters who are members of what title group in a 1991 film?
Mystery – Identify the 1990s movies – all with one-word titles based on the following definitions of the title words.
1. (1996) “A tornado, waterspout, or dust devil”
2. (1990) “A disembodied soul”
3. (1998) “The site or time of a final and conclusive battle between the forces of good and evil”
4. (1996) “A device used to remove marks”
Got all of these.
Final War Tom Hanks and Tom Sizemore play the characters who lead the title mission in the 1998 film Saving Private Ryan.
Name two of the six actors who play characters who are chosen to accompany them on that mission.
Brent was the “war hero” for this question (woot)! Still not enough to put us in the top tier (still a fun game)!
As always, Go Pods, Sparty On – and stay classy, Jafar!
