2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3, Day 3

Post by DadofTwins » Wed Aug 14, 2013 1:08 pm

So, it's been quite the week here in the Fortress. A couple of inexplicably sloppy mistakes have created some RQ material. After nine years, you'd think I'd be better at this by now.

Anyway, here's what I'd like to know:

If you clammed yesterday's Presidential 8-pointer, please post in the Instant Replay thread and tell me why. I'd like a glimpse into your thought process so I can see where the clue went wrong. Thanks.

By the way, the RQ for Day 1 will go up tomorrow.

Here's today's set. I don't think there's anything weird going on, but there is some brilliant guest writing in the second category.

Good luck.

CENSORED MOVIES

by Magna. A well-earned 45 points. This is brilliant, y'all.

Each movie has a title made of two four-letter words. We've also bleeped all the four-letter words from these descriptions. Name the movies. (You don't have to name the other words.)

3: Though there **** two remakes, the original **** 1933, starring Fay **** as the ***'* **** interest remains a fan favorite.

6: Sci-fi reboot **** Chris **** as a young James ****, who meets future members of his ****, in their **** at the academy.

9: In a remote cabin, **** friends discover the **** of the ****, which **** use to **** forth the titular spirits.

12: After marrying a Quaker played by Grace Kelly, Marshal **** **** (played by **** Cooper) turns in in his ****. **** an outlaw returning on the **** train threatens revenge. **** **** **** the outlaw alone, without ****, it would ****.

15: Played by Helena Bonham Carter, the title character, **** **** ****, is forced to marry **** Dudley. **** her father, the **** of Suffolk (played by Patrick Stewart), **** her on the throne, but not for ****! It's **** **** **** before cousin **** takes control.
