We Highly Doubt That You Can Name 100% of These Movies From A Single Screenshot

There are many films that are considered true classics that anyone who claims to love the cinema must see before they go. These films are the films that shaped modern cinema as we know it. The films that created new genres or film-making styles. They changed cultural norms and challenged societal expectations. The films that we grew up with and made us the people that we are today. Films and media have the power to change us, to show us stories that we never could have experienced on our own and explain perspectives alien to our own. They teach us about the past, the future, and ourselves. Many write off the art of filmmaking entirely due to the negative connotations associated with consuming them but it is an art that requires a lot of hard work. And that work requires recognition.

This quiz is for the cinephiles of the world. The people who are happiest in front of a screen. The people who have seen more films than anyone they know and who have a list of their twenty favourite films that they spent endless hours narrowing down. The people who have a list of films they want to see before their time is up instead of a bucket list. This quiz is for the movie lovers of the world.

Question 1

Name this movie

Certain people are attracted to certain films. People who prefer to live a more quiet and subdued life generally prefer more relaxed and low-key films. People who love thrills are more likely to be drawn towards action movies. Those who wear their hearts on their sleeves are usually drawn towards romantic and emotional films. And that is the beauty of modern cinema. There are so many diverse, unique, and different films constantly being produced that every single person on this wonderful planet can find dozens of films perfectly tailored to their individual likes and preferences. A perfect film for each and every one of us.

Question 2

Name this movie

The greatest trend in modern cinema history was the trend that occurred in the late 1990s and early 2000s where every teen romantic comedy was based on a classic novel or Shakespearean play. Seeing these classic works of literature being adapted into a modern world was utterly thrilling and satisfying each and every time. Some films stuck to their source material as much as they were able to while other's created something almost entirely new. Both were wonderful and both were loved by all. This trend needs to make a comeback. There are so many other classics that require a modern adaptation.

Question 3

Name this movie

There are two types of people on this Earth. Those who like musicals and those who don't. When the aliens invade the planet Earth and decide to split the human race up into a binary, they will not do so based on our gender nor race. They will split us based on who likes musicals and who does not. Songs and elaborate dance numbers can be wonderful ways to communicate what a character is feeling in any given moment without having to create a weirdly forced dialogue that allows them to say those feelings out loud. These songs allow them to speak their mind freely and that is a wonderful thing.

Question 4

Name this movie

The best kinds of movies are the ones that remind us of ourselves. Of our experiences, jobs we have had, people we have encountered in our lives, and people that we have been or hope to be. These films exist as a bit of an inside joke between the filmmakers, characters, and the audiences as only people who have experienced the things depicted on the screen will truly understand how it feels to be in said situations. Everyone loves a film about how unfavourable it can be to work in retail, the food industry, or anything relating to the costumer service industry.

Question 5

Name this movie

There are films that are classics because they changed the game. They invented new styles of filmmaking or challenged establish norms. And then there are films that are considered classics because we grew up with them and shared them with our children when they were old enough to sit through them. The kind of films that bring one so much comfort that simply watching them makes one feel like a carefree child sitting in their family home again. These are the movies that stand the test of time. These are the movies that will truly never be lost or forgotten.

Question 6

Name this movie

Some movies don't have a happy ending and as much as this eternal optimist does not want to admit, sometimes the more realistic ending is the better ending. Sure, everyone wants everything to turn out well for our protagonist. We want them to achieve their every dream, win the heart of their romantic interest, and succeed in their every goal. But that is not always realistic nor is it the best ending for the plot at hand. If a film is based upon the things we must give up in order to get the things we truly want, then the character has to give something up in the end or else the theme falls flat.

Question 7

Name this movie

The best question to ask someone who one is attempting to get to know is what movie shaped them or had the greatest influence on them growing up. By asking them this question, one is able to glean such a wonderful insight into who they are as a person. This question can show what their goals are in life, what values they hold, what their general outlook on life is, and who they truly are at the core of their being. Plus, seeing someone talk about something important to them makes their face light up and that is a wonderful thing to see.

Question 8

Name this movie

The best thing about movies which are considered "classics" by the film critics and cinephiles of the world are the ones which are deceptively funny. Many people live their lives with the false assumption that previous generations were not as funny as the youngest members of our society or that the cultural and societal expectations and norms held in previous decades prevented frivolity and silliness from seeping into their media. But that is simply not the case. The best thing about classic films is the absurd amount of humour and silliness that is snuck in in such subtle ways that one might not even notice such things on their first watch.

Question 9

Name this movie

Adapting a cartoon or comic book for the big screen can be a big task. As many know, sometimes the more cartoonish character designs simply do not translate to the big screen properly and filmmakers must decide between creating a more realistic style or sticking to the original design; regardless of if it looks "off" or not. Usually, the best decision is to create the most realistic version of the original design without changing any of the core crucial and identifiable character traits. Doing so can result in making the dedicated fans of the character/source material feel uneasy about the adaptation itself.

Question 10

Name this movie

There are some movies that only those who have seen them will know about and there are other films, like the one in which this question is referring to, that are so deeply embedded in our culture that one can easily identify it from a single iconic frame, even if they have never seen the film before themselves. Such films have transcended beyond the label of classic and are now considered cultural icons in their own right. And that is the best thing that can happen to a movie and is definitely something that each filmmaker hopes for when working on their latest film.

Question 11

Name this movie

Though convention can be a wonderful thing, defying such things can produce amazing and poignant art that stands out in a wonderful way. Everybody loves a good love story. There is a hidden romantic in all of us and such films nurtures them in the best way. But sometimes we crave something different. Not a film of a different genre entirely. But rather, a twist on a common trope. A love story that is not about love at all. A story about two people who think that they are in love but are actually only in love with the idea of each other.

Question 12

Name this movie

Every single person in our Western society has a fictional character that they have always held right beside their heart. A character that they discovered in early childhood, that they quickly attached themselves to and shaped who they grew up to be. This character shared the same values, beliefs, and personality traits that said person was shaped by and embodies every single thing that they wished to be when they grew up. Even if, once they did grow up, they ended up being someone else entirely, this fictional character and the film to which they belong will always hold a special place in their hearts.

Question 13

Name this movie

Regardless of the period of time which has occurred since a film has been released, it is important to never spoil the ending of a film (especially one belonging to a beloved and massive franchise) for someone who has not seen it. Even if the film is decades old, if someone expresses that they have not yet consumed the film to its conclusion but are planning to do so in the near future, discussing the ending or twist of said film with said person is just not nice. Give people the space to consume and enjoy films in their own time.

Question 14

Name this movie

There are a lot of things that filmmakers must consider when writing a script for teenage characters. Do they risk using modern memes and references that may be long since deceased by the time the film is released? Do they clean up the language and behaviour and risk creating a falsely pure image of teens or do they go all out and risk creating a dramatized and unrealistically mature representation of literal children? Do they hire adult actors in order to avoid child-labor laws and the other difficulties that come with younger actors even though that creates an unrealistic expectation of what a teen should look like or do they deal with the issues and cast actual teens?

Question 15

Name this movie

Is there such thing as an objectively good movie or are such things entirely subjective? Let's say that two people watch the same film and one declares that this film is their new favourite film while the other would be much happier had they never seen it in the first place. Is one person right and the other wrong in their opinion? Or are such things purely subjective? One man's trash is another man's treasure and there are enough films out there for everyone to find their perfect picture so there is no need to yuck someone else's cinematic yum.

Question 16

Name this movie

Seeing a film in the theatre is such a wonderful experience. Though incredibly expensive in the modern world, there is still something so special about traveling to the local theatre, queuing up to buy tickets, getting the snacks, finding the right viewing room, picking a seat, seeing the trailers, and enjoying a movie with a room full of strangers who are just as excited to watch the story unfold. There is something so wonderful about consuming a film with this room full of strangers. The best theatre experiences are the ones where the audience is oo-ing and aah-ing and laughing at all of the right moments.

Question 17

Name this movie

Not all sequels were created equally. Some sequels are perfect additions to the established universe. They fully round of the story and add the perfect amount of new information without destabilizing the old. Some sequels end up being better than the original films and they are the films we turn to instead of the first movie in the series. These are the best kinds of sequels. And then there are the sequels that were utter mistakes from the start and that the audience does everything they can to ignore the fact that said poor sequel even exists. If one were to ask the fans of the film in question, they would all agree that it has no sequel.

Question 18

Name this movie

Don Bluth makes a good film. He is the mind behind so many beloved classics and one would be hard pressed to find a single person who has not seen or even heard of a single one of his projects. And though he does use a similar design for a few of his male romantic leads, that design is objectively aesthetically pleasing so there are no complaints here about the similarities. Every little girl had a crush on Dimitri growing up. That is a fact which nobody can deny. Either one crushed on Anastasia herself or they fell in love with Dimitri.

Question 19

Name this movie

Each and every film contains a message, lesson, and/or moral in which the plot is centred around. These morals speak to those who consume the films in which they are contained about the issues and the societal norms that affect and occur in our lifetimes. Common morals include the importance of clear and honest communication with the people around, never pretending to be something that one is not especially in order to gain platonic and/or romantic approval, and chasing one's dreams at the earliest possibility for the regret that will occur if one dashes said goals aside will be far greater than the failure that could result from said endeavors.

Question 20

Name this movie

There are some movies that, though intense, warrant at least one viewing due to their status as utter classics. Some classic films are not for everyone, and that is okay. Some classics can feel undeserving of the title to most and begs the question of what makes a classic film? Is it the plot or characters? Are films that break the norm considered classics in all cases or are some diversions from convention more celebrated than others? Do critics decide what is a classic and what will be lost to time or is that up to the fans to decide?

Question 21

Name this movie

There are some movies whose endings are spoiled before one even gets the chance to view the film for themselves. For some, knowing about the ending to a movie can turn them off from the idea of seeing said movie entirely. But for others, knowing what happens during a film's runtime can excite them and make them more eager to see the film in question. Since the internet is always brimming with spoilers of every sort, those who belong to the latter group of people are lucky individuals. The only way to avoid spoilers nowadays is to turn off one's phone until the film in question has been watched and enjoyed in full.

Question 22

Name this movie

The best films are the ones that make the person watching them feel good. The films that fill those watching them with wonderful feelings that tell them that everything is possible and that nothing stands in the way of them achieving their dreams. The movies that feel like sitting in the living room of one's childhood home eating their favourite snack from their youth. Nothing is better the films that evoke the same sense of nostalgia that driving through one's childhood neighbourhood does. Films that make us long for a life we once (or never) had. Studio Ghibli films manage to do just that and we love them for it.

Question 23

Name this movie

When watching classic films that were created in vastly different times than our own, is it fair to hold them up to modern standards? Due to the rate at which cultural norms and societal expectations change, is it fair to hold these classic films up to modern social rules and ideologies? The best way to consume these classic films is to recognize that they are a product of the time in which they were created and not hold them up to rules that changed long after filming ended and to recognize how far we have come, as a society, since their release.

Question 24

Name this movie

One of the greatest aspects of the movie watching experience is to contact those who have also seen said film after the fact and discuss the film together. Dissect its plot and themes in order to unravel what one has seen and the events that have transpired on screen. Break down characters and compare them to common archetypes to see how their individual stories and identities were handled. Compare the film to movies of a similar genre or with similar story-points to discuss how each film handled the comparable issues. There is nothing better than positively dissecting films with friends.

Question 25

Name this movie

The most wonderful thing about the film industry is the fact that there are so many unique films available to consume. There are dozens of unique genres and sub-genres as well as those films that somehow both fit into a specific genre and yet defy each and every convention associated with said category. There is a film for every demographic in the world and that means that there is no point in spending one's precious time moaning on about the specific films that one does not like online when they could be spending that time consuming the films that they do like instead.

Question 26

Name this movie

One film trend that has gotten tired in the modern era and that should be retired is using the movies female characters as plot devices in order to further the male character's journey. Eliminating them in order to give the male character some depth, allowing them to be taken in order to motivate the male characters, or even creating one dimensional and disposable female characters whose only purpose in the film is to teach the male character about the infinite wonders of the universe around him before quickly disappearing after her use has worn out. No thanks. Write better female characters.

Question 27

Name this movie

Movies like this one are proof that sometimes, critics have no idea what they are talking about. Critics tend to prefer artistic or high concept films and those who talk about the deeper subject matter while keeping the tone light and accessible often get ignored entirely. It is possible to discuss intense subjects without creating an intense film and the film in question is proof of that. Themes of confusion, lies, and family ties are explored while keeping a playful tone throughout the majority of the film. Not every film which deals with such topics needs to be so "gloom and doom."

Question 28

Name this movie

Here a question that each cinephile must consider at one point or another: just how important is historical accuracy in period dramas? Is historical accuracy something that must be stuck to at all costs? Even if doing so results in a boring or lack-luster film? Or can the real facts be twisted, altered, or even dismissed entirely in order to create the best story possible? How far is too far when it comes to changing the facts? How many changes does it take for a film to no longer be allowed to claim that it was based on true events?

Question 29

Name this movie

Another question one must ask oneself when viewing films set in another time period is just how important is accurately depicting said time period to the viewer? Can films get away with including modern fabrics and sneak in technology that may have been released a year or two after the film was set? Or should everything be strictly representative of the time in which it was set? Should costume and set designers be expected to study photo representations of the time and recreate those as accurately as possible or will they be forgiven for making tiny and barely noticeable errors in accuracy?

Question 30

Name this movie

One of the best film genres in the world is the biopic. Sure, biographies can be exciting to read but seeing modern actors alter their appearance in order to represent great figures from the past is just so rewarding. Watching these actors change their voices, postures, and mannerisms in order to bring a historical figure to life is so utterly fascinating. Arguably more fascinating than the plot of the biopic itself. The more accurate the portrayal, the more interesting the film becomes. There is nothing more satisfying than watching the actor and the historical figure themselves side by side and seeing the actor nail each quirk and mannerism.

Question 31

Name this movie

The best films are those which include whimsical characters who never lose their inner child, no matter how old they get or what life throws at them. They remain kind, soft, and wide-eyed as they navigate through the adult world and never lose that child-like wonder. These are the best people both in the fictional and the real world and we must protect them at all costs. They make every day and every film a bit more magical than the others and their spark is always welcome. Never lose that inner child. As long as one pays their taxes and honours their responsibilities, they never have to grow up.

Question 32

Name this movie

The best classic films are the ones that are nothing like one would expect but end up being wonderful in their own right. Some films, though popular and well known, have somehow managed to evade casual conversation for lengthy periods of time; keeping their plots somewhat secret and spoiler-free. While some classics have their plots exposed like dirty laundry for the world to see, others are able to keep the details of their plots secret no matter how well known and watched they become over time. These are the movies that are never what one expects them to be, but are wonderful anyways.

Question 33

Name this movie

There are movies that entertain us and movies that make us think about the world in a different way. And then there are the movies that change or even save our lives. And these are the best movies to watch. When consuming said movies, one can feel a spark inside them ignite and light a fire beside their heart which will provide them with the warmth and motivation needed to change the direction of their life and become the person that they were always meant to be. And that is why filmmaking is an art. Because it has the power to move us.

Question 34

Name this movie

Everyone on the face of this Earth has seen a movie that they were a bit too young to see. Maybe they hid behind the couch, hours after they were supposed to be in bed, and snuck a sneaky peek at the film that their parents were consuming. Maybe their uncle, brother, or babysitter misread the rating and showed them a movie that was intended for a much older audience. Maybe they insisted that they were mature enough to handle the content and then quickly realized that that was not the case. Whatever the case may be, we have all seen films not intended for us that, most likely, gave us nightmares for years to come.

Question 35

Name this movie

Adapting a beloved book to the screen can be an arduous task as certain changes will need to be made in order to create a smooth story both visually and narratively. Not every single detail and moment can make it onto the screen without the film being several hours long and somethings simply do not translate properly from the page to the screen. That being said, not all adaptations are made equal and sometimes it seems as though the directors and scriptwriters have completely ignored the source material and have decided to create their own story entirely. Luckily, the movie in question is one of the greatest film adaptations of all time.

Question 36

Name this movie

Is changing details of the story unfair to the person in which a biopic or historical period drama is based? Or are such things expected when adapting someone's life story into a film? Sometimes the details of one's life need to be twisted and rearranged in order to create a more cohesive narrative arc but is doing so unfair to the person whose life is being edited? Real life rarely includes the happy endings and perfect moments that one expects in a film and audiences are more likely to want to consume a happier film. But is altering these details unfair to the person in which the film is based?

Question 37

Name this movie

Should filmmakers hire bigger actors for certain roles, even if the character description needs to be altered to fit said actor or should lesser-known actors who fit the established character description get those roles? Though one may be inclined to advocate for the little guy in said situations it is important to note that certain names and people get audiences in those seats and some people are unlikely to see a film if they are not familiar with any of the actors in it. So should casting directors alter the descriptions to fit more well-known actors in order to ensure a larger audience or stick to the script and go with the underdog, even if it costs them?

Question 38

Name this movie

Spooky films can truly be hit or miss. Those who rely entirely on jumps and sudden loud string music can get boring very quickly as their novelty wears off and are rarely good enough to warrant repeat viewing. And then there are the films that merely hint at something being amiss and slowly build upon those feelings of unease until the audience is telling the characters within the film to leave and evacuate the situation in which they are in because things are going to take a turn very quickly and they should not be around when it does. What is this film?

Question 39

Name this movie

There are some children's movies that fill audiences of all ages with a feeling of warmth and joy. And there are some children's movies that make those viewing them question how anyone consulted in the process of making said film could ever think that such things would be acceptable to show a young and impressionable audience. Some films contain scenes that are simply brushed off by children but can have the adults who view the film reaching for the tissues at an alarming rate. It is important to note that these themes and moments simply go over the heads of the younger viewers.

Question 40

Name this movie

Though the jokes are often missed and underappreciated, there is just something so wonderful about the parody and satirical genre of film. Some films take the parody a bit too far and end up becoming the thing that they are poking fun at themselves while others can be just a touch too subtle leaving many wondering whether it was satirical (or not) in the first place. But in most cases, parodies are an accessible type of comedy that provides a wonderful mix of levity and cheeky social commentary to those who consume them. And that cheeky levity is what makes them so special.

Question 41

Name this movie

Sometimes the reboot of a beloved film or television show overtakes the original and becomes the go-to fan favourite in the series. Such shifts are a wonderful thing though fans of the original material may feel a little put out with the fandom shifting from one version to another. Said shift can also prompt filmmakers to return to said material time and time again when they are running out of ideas as recreating something so well known and beloved creates a project with a guaranteed audience and fandom provided with minimal effort and/or marketing. But they must be careful as any large changes may provoke Twitter and that is the last thing anyone wants.

Question 42

Name this movie

Are the best classic literary film adaptions the ones who focus on historical accuracy or the ones who decide to put a modern twist on things? Both versions of the same story have their merits but if one is tasked with choosing the best version, then several things must be considered. The biggest concern being dedicated to the question of if changing the time period affects the themes that are present in the story? Does a more modern setting enhance said themes or does changing the time period remove the historical context needed to understand certain nuances to the plot?

Question 43

Name this movie

One of the greatest film periods in modern history was the witchy-themed period that popped up in the mid 90s. Following the Satanic-Panic of the 80s, Hollywood decided that the supernatural beings of the night needed a family-friendly make-over. And, seemingly overnight, dozens of films popped up centred around several creatures of the night; depicting them as fun, silly, and offbeat people with wants and needs just like us in order to show that we are not so different after all. Maybe it is time for another flood of witchy and supernatural-themed media to hit the market since the Superhero trend is on the decline.

Question 44

Name this movie

If one grew up in a house with parents who love consuming media, one has undoubtedly spent the majority of their childhood's hearing their family talking about a series of classic and beloved films. It is important to note that the films which one's parents deem classics may not actually be classics in the eyes of the film world. But rather, the films that one's parents personally feel are classic regardless of critical reception. And that is the best way to decide which films are classic. Base one's film opinions on one's own personal taste and not the taste nor opinions of others.

Question 45

Name this movie

The word "cringey" needs to go away, especially in regards to the actions of young teens both fictional and real-world teens. These young people are trying to figure out who they are, what they believe, and where they belong in the world and judging their actions from a more experienced and settled place is simply unfair. Let people explore themselves without judgment. Let them like what they like without having to explain themselves. Do not judge one's past self for that self still exists inside them and that sort of meanness helps nobody. End cringe culture and just let people be.

Question 46

Name the movie

There are a few select films that do a wonderful job of portraying the true modern teen experience and those films are pure gold and should be protected at all cost. It can be very difficult writing about the teen experience from an adult perspective as we tend to immediately forget what it was like to be a teenager the moment we turn twenty as the hormones calm down and we gain a bit of perspective on the issues that used to take up our entire headspace. But some writers are able to tap into that youthful mind and create realistic and nostalgic art that should be cherished.

Question 47

Name this movie

One of the more difficult tasks in the filmmaking world is adapting a Broadway production to the big screen. The limitations of the stage are no longer present in such a format and though that does sound like it should be liberating, it can actually affect the storytelling as many elements of the original Broadway production simply exist to circumvent those limitations. So, with them removed, those elements must be adjusted as well. However, being able to change sets and environments easily can be a true asset to the storytelling process and can create a much more dynamic visual experience.

Question 48

Name this movie

Portraying certain less than ideal aspects of the real world can be tricky. Filmmakers need to make sure that they are respectful of the thing itself as well as the people who are dealing with said thing while also making sure that someone outside of said community can still engage with the film. The line between making a realistic and entertaining film that portrays said issues and less than ideal aspects of the real world can be an arduous task as such issues are often sensitive and need to be handled with care. If they focus on entertainment value too strongly and lose some aspects of realism, they could wind up misrepresenting a serious issue.

Question 49

Name this movie

Some of the best movies are the ones that snuck under the radar at the time of their release only to become incredibly popular in certain circles years afterwards. These films build a large following of like-minded individuals who worship the film and the stars within it for years. They recreate the film on Broadway, cosplay the characters at every chance, and make inside jokes based on references from the film with members of the fandom. The film in which this question is based is one of those movies. And anyone who saw, and loved, it when it was first released is over the moon about its new following.

Question 50

Name this movie

Which romantic comedy is better? The kinds that include lengthy, elaborate, and expertly crafted speeches that no one would ever recite in reality but makes us yearn for such things regardless of how unrealistic they might be? Or the ones brimming with witty banty and quirky jokes far wittier than any real person could muster but still entertaining all the same. How would real life be affected if we were all given the opportunity to write out everything we saw beforehand so that we could have the time to rehearse and perfect each joke, romantic declaration, and speech we perform?
