Name as many of the films as you can. 

All of the films shown in the collage below are somehow connected to Sparta, though it might not be as straightforward as one would assume: a storyline, a movie title, an actor’s or character’s name, a location, a deity, ... 

Open image in zoomable, high-res viewer.

You’ll notice that some are rather easy to answer, while others will be more of a challenge. Each of the 20 images has a point value between 1 and 5 (and one 10 point title!) assigned, depending on the difficulty. 

I won't be commenting on your responses so as not to give away which of these are correct and which are not, but you're very welcome to PM me your answers so as not to give them away to others :-). 

Have fun!

the quiz will end and the winner will be announced on Sunday, April 2nd, 12:00 UTC.

And the winner is: kjm !!

Congratulations, well done :-) Please send Alyona your player details so she can credit you with the winnings.

Here all answers:

  1. "Mourning Becomes Electra" (1947) - Eugene O'Neill's adaptation of Aeschylus' "Oresteia". 
  2. "Remember the Titans" (2000) - Titans: 2nd generation of divine beings, descending from the primordial deities and preceding the Olympian deities. 
  3. "Troy" (2004) - For obvious reasons. 
  4. "My Fair Lady" (1964) - based on Lerner & Loewe's stage musical, which in turn is based on a George Bernard Shaw play "Pygmalion", referencing the mythical sculptor from Cyprus who fell in love with one of his statues. 
  5. "O Brother Where Art Thou" (2000) - a satirical retelling of Homer's "Odyssey". 
  6. "The Hunger Games" (2012) - Gladiators, a Minotaur, a Labyrinth and the myth of Theseus all rolled into one. 
  7. "The Simpsons Movie" (2007) - Starring Homer. DOH! 
  8. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" (2002) - obviously. 
  9. "Cloud Atlas" (2012) - Atlas: Titan condemned to hold up the sky for eternity. 
  10. "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972) - Poseidon: God of the Sea, one of the twelve Olympian deities of the pantheon. 
  11. "Léon" (1994) - Leon: one of the lion-headed giants, killed by Herakles in the war against the gods. 
  12. "Apollo 13" (1995) - Apollo: the son of Zeus and Leto, one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities. 
  13. "Creed" (2015) - Apollo: the son of Zeus and Leto, one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities. 
  14. "The Cassandra Crossing" (1976) - Greek mythological prophet, daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. 
  15. "The Medusa Touch" (1978) - Medusa: a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with a hideous face and living venomous snakes in place of hair. 
  16. "Avatar" (2000) - Pandora: first human woman created by the gods, specifically by Hephaestus and Athena on the instructions of Zeus. 
  17. "The Matrix" (1999) - Morpheus: god of dreams. Winged daemon, said to be able to mimic any human form and to appear in dreams. 
  18. "Spartacus" (1960) - Spartacus: one of the escaped slave leaders in the Third Servile War, a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic. Yes, he's Roman, but his name qualifies him for this quiz :-).

Hello.  I followed the instructions from moderator the Irate Penguin. I sent my answers to the Irate Penguin.  Here are the instructions from above   "PM me your answers so as not to give them away to others :-)."   The instructions told us what to do exactly.


Here are my answers. I did not get all correct. But I got some correct. It was a fun quiz show.  Also I could find out about some new movies. If I get a chance, I will try to watch those.

Tonaya.


Please look at the game instructions.  It is the first post by moderator the Irate Penguin.  "PM" = private message.  Not public answer. It means, do not write answers on here. You send your answers to moderator Irate Penguin. Then moderator checks your answers. If the answer is correct,  1 point. If the answer is not correct, 0 point.  


I added my message to Irate Penguin here. You can see my message. I sent my message to Irate Penguin on March 27. That is not cheating. It is follow the instructions.

Now really, Tonaya, after your "extended" absence, this is the best you could do? :-).

Apart from the fact that, as already pointed out, answers could be handed in by PM, you yourself have contributed answers to previous quiz questions per PM. My suggestion, don't seek legal advice on this one, it's a non-starter :-). 

Cheers
P.

PS: But let me waste my time and yours and humour you by supplying an unnecessary screenshot:


PPS: I'm now closing this thread since no more good can come of it :-). Congrats to kjm for the win (!!) and any further complaints can be addressed here.
