    What are you talki- HEY! :mad: :oops: GK!!!

    Oh, well... that Trvia isn't gonna post itself...

    Okay, rise and shine! It's time for Quiz #4! Scores are re-set! Newcomers are welcome, as always! And awaaaay we go...

    As usual, we'll start things off slow: a trio of themes with some granduer to them. I'm looking for film name and composer for 1 point. Name the track for a bonus point. An easy 6 points to start things off.

    The first couple of rounds may be lightweights... but I've kept some of the best rounds in store for this quiz, so watch out!

    And, of course... have fun!

    Oops. this seems to be SNAFU day all around, I guess. It's been a while since I compiled all of these clips, so a certain detail escaped me...

    As Darth_Vader-Anakin pointed out to me, clip 3 is in fact from a compilation album, not the official soundtrack- so the orchestration is slightly different. Bonus point eliminated from that one, obviously.

    Sorry. [face_blush]

    I think for pointing it out, I should get a bonus point. ;)

    Well, that was easy. Though I must say I expected a few more people to take a stab at some nearly-free points! I mean, come on- the Jurassic Park Theme? Anyway, for those that guessed and those that were just curious, here are the answers to Round 31: This One?s REALLY Easy?
    1. Stargate, by David Arnold. Mastadge Drag.
    2. Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones, by John Williams. Departing Coruscant.
    3. Jurassic Park, by John Williams. Compilation Track.



    So, congrats to those who guessed, and a heart ?what happened?? to those that didn?t. As for those in the former category, they fall into the following ranks- oh, and those of you breathing a sigh of relief, be wary... 'cause guess who's back:
    Well_Of_Souls ? 5 points
    Darth_Vader-Anakin ? 5 points
    Outrider462004 ? 5 points
    HookLineAndSinker ? 5 points
    Scoot ? 4 points
    TheBoogieMan ? 3 points
    MrUnderhiII ? 1 point



    Which also happens to be our Quiz Total, at the moment. Not a bad start! Now then, onto the next round?

    ?How bad of a sign is it when you play back the clips for the week and you can?t recognize one of them yourself until you use process of elimination based on the category? Hopefully, it was just an off-day for me, but just in case, I?m offering triple points for clip #97- in I.D. and bonus.

    Now, as for the category? it really couldn?t be much easier, actually. After all, how do you get much simpler than ?They?re all from summer blockbuster? of this year?? Narrows things down quite a bit! Of course, they?re not the main themes, so we?ll stick with the last round?s setup- 1 point for film/composer, 1 bonus point for identifying the track. (But don?t worry, oh ye in the lead who fear the other ranks closing in- the penny- er? point-pinching begins next round- so those of you looking to make some advancements in status may want to focus this round!)

    Here you go!

    Well, you needn't have seen an episode of Stargate- the track was from the film itself. I learned my lesson about TV show scores... [face_blush]

    Perhaps it's time I re-stated the rules... it's been a while.

    This OFFICIAL Film Music Trivia Quiz is a weekly quiz (formerly with Thursday updates, now moved to Saturday) in which I post the clips, and you PM the guesses. You can submit more than one guess if you wish, to correct earlier guesses- but if you talk yourself out of a correct answer, I won't count it.

    Newcomers are welcome at any round of the game- you don't ahve to wait for a new quiz to join, just submit answers. In addition to the 10-round quiz and it's winner, a second contest is running based on cumulative points from all of the quizes since I took over, so even if a round's points won't get you to 1st in the quiz itself, they'll still add to your overall cumulative score.

    Other than that, the point values as I announce them are self-evident in the individual posts. And now, thanks to our generous moderator General Kenobi, the winner of each round gets a temporary VIP-ship, and the cumulative total winner each round gets an usual music track of a random nature, one of the many I've encountered in my internet wanderings, to add to their collection.

    Any questions, feel free to post 'em and I'll do my best to answer 'em- but I believe that sums up the OFFICIAL (I don't think I'll ever get tired of saying that...) Film Music Trivia Quiz!

    All right! [face_pumpkin] The Blockbusters are done and fall is in the air (at least, over here on the West Coast, USA.) Sounds like a good time to cap off Round 32: Summer Scores. So, without further ado:
    1. Superman Returns, by John Ottman. Memories.
    2. Pirates of the Caribben: Dead Man?s Chest, by Hans Zimmer. Dinner Is Served.
    3. Cars, by Randy Newman. The Big Race.


    Those who successfully busted these blockbusters were:
    Darth_Vader-Anakin ? 10 points
    HookLineAndSinker ? 4 points
    Scoot ? 4 points
    Outrider462004 ? 4 points
    Mr. UnderhiII ? 3 points


    This puts out totals at:
    Darth_Vader-Anakin ? 15 points
    HookLineAndSinker ? 9 points
    Outrider462004 ? 9 points
    Scoot ? 8 points
    Well_Of_Souls ? 5 points
    MrUnderhiII ? 4 point
    TheBoogieMan ? 3 points



    Not bad for this early in the quiz! And now?

    ?it?s our birthday, precious! [face_dancing] Yes, indeed- this batch contains the new Official Music Trivia Quiz?s 100th clip! Hooray! To celebrate, I?ll make this a 5-point each round!

    Or maybe that?s ?cause it?s pretty tricky.

    These three somber, brooding, openings may be from any film, any era, and anywhere in the film. To collect your points, you?ll need to give me the film, composer, and track. Except for clip #98, which is a re-orchestration.

    I?m betting I?ll get several clip 99s, but I?m curious to see if ANYONE will get clip #100, which remained as a mystery track on my IPOD for so long, I almost considered making it a bonus ?Can anybody tell me what this is? question in the quiz before I finally recognized it. So good luck with that. [face_devil]

    Your points are my points. I didn't even listen to these clips. I decided not to waste anymore blank cd's. That was the only way I could hear the last rounds clips since the soundcard is dead on my comp. Though from the answers, I would have gotten 2 of the 3. Oh well.

    So it should read...


    Darth_Vader-Anakin ? 10 points
    Well_Of_Souls ? 4 points
    Scoot ? 4 points
    Outrider462004 ? 4 points
    Mr. UnderhiII ? 3 points

    This puts out totals at:
    Darth_Vader-Anakin ? 15 points
    Well_Of_Souls ? 9 points
    Outrider462004 ? 9 points
    Scoot ? 8 points
    HookLineAndSinker ? 5 points
    MrUnderhiII ? 4 point
    TheBoogieMan ? 3 points

    ...um... yeah. I was just... testing you... [face_blush]

    :oops:

    Okay, this is not my month. Sorry, WOS. HLS is right- I'll fix that in my notes and post based on the corrected stats next round.
