Think Different 317 - Movie Mania (FINAL RESULTS POSTED!)

Post by gamawire » Sun Oct 16, 2016 8:00 am

Welcome to TD 317 – Movie Mania!

The goal is to give a correct answer that is given by the fewest other players. You will receive one point for each person who gives the same answer as you, including yourself. Scoring is additive, and low score wins. Incorrect responses will receive the sheep (most popular) answer +5. Ties will be broken by earliest submission.

As always, no cheating. No looking up any answers or visiting your psychic for help; all answers must come from your own brain.

There are two helps available to you:
-- You may use FREE ADMISSION for one question and receive zero points for that question – please use your drop as there is no benefit in not doing so.
-- You may also choose BLOCKBUSTER for one question; if used, you will receive the same amount of points on that question as the sheep response.

If there are any questions or clarifications, please either post in this thread or PM me if you think your comment could spoil a question for someone else.

Please submit your answers through THIS FORM. Deadline for entering is Monday, October 24, at 9:00 PM CDT.

Enjoy!

9. Legal Films: I am a librarian at a Texas law school, and during my tenure, I have curated a large collection of law-related films. For this question, give me the title of one of the legal movies for which I have provided a brief plot synopsis. For extra help, I have included the year of the film’s release (15 possible answers).
SpoilerShow
A. A small-town attorney in Depression-era Alabama defends a crippled black man falsely accused of rape (1962).
B. A chronicle of the hostile deliberations of a jury in a death penalty case in which a lone juror expresses his doubts about what seems at first to be an open-and-shut prosecution (1957).
C. A brash Brooklyn lawyer (who finally passes the bar exam on his sixth try) represents two California-bound college students arrested for capital murder after a short stop at a convenience store in rural Alabama (1992).
D. A realistic study of an Army lieutenant accused of murdering a bartender who allegedly raped his wife (1959).
E. A first-year law student at Harvard Law School struggles with balancing his coursework and his relationship with the daughter of his sternest professor (1973).
F. An attorney who specializes in whistle blower cases finds himself going up against his estranged daughter in a case involving a defective automobile (1991).
G. The story of three Australian soldiers who fight for the British Empire in the colonial Boer War in South Africa and are tried and convicted of war crimes (1980).
H. Sex comes to the Supreme Court in this dramatization of the famed First Amendment case Hustler Magazine v. Falwell (1996).
I. A law school student writes a legal brief speculating that two environmentalist Supreme Court justices were assassinated by a rich oil tycoon who planned to drill on marshland in Louisiana (1993).
J. A washed-up, alcoholic lawyer gets handed a medical-malpractice case and sees it as one last chance to get his career right (1982).
K. In 1924 Chicago, two wealthy law school students go on trial for murder in this version of the Leopold-Loeb case (1959).
L. Charges are brought against four German judges accused of allowing their courts to become accomplices to Nazi atrocities (1961).
M. Sir Thomas More is caught in the political struggle involving Henry VIII’s decision to defy the Roman Catholic Church and divorce his wife to wed Anne Boleyn (1966).
N. Two low-ranking Marines from the Guantanamo Bay naval base are court-martialed for the death of another, allegedly part of an unofficial punishment known as a “code red” (1992).
O. A legal look at the heated issues of office politics, sexual harassment and whether a double standard exists when such allegations are levied by a man or woman (1994).
10. Military Movies: When not working (and sometimes when I am), I spend a lot of time watching, writing about, and presenting on women in the military on film. For this question, name a movie released 2010-present that features at least one woman in the military with a speaking role (27 possible answers at least). Note: not all possible answers are American films. CLARIFICATION: I am looking for women who are actually in the military in these films - not militia, paramilitary, or the like; in all the movies on my list, the woman is in an organized military, even if that military is non-U.S. That said, as with the quotes questions, I tend to be fairly lenient, so if your response is not on my list, I'll check it out and try and give points.

Clarifications/Corrections:

I have changed choice I on the first question to correct an error.

Clarification for #10: I am looking for women who are actually in the military in these films - not militia, paramilitary, or the like; in all the movies on my list, the woman is in an organized military, even if that military is non-U.S.

Same thought. Many quotes have come to be known by various very similar versions. Will "close enough" to the original be "good enough?"

I think we should at least be required to come up with the exact quote for The Wizard of Ox.

It will be on a case-by-case basis, but, yes, I will be generous.

I hate to raise my own score, but I said Marisa Tomei, not Dianne Weist.
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.
