    I’ve got half so far, but I’m in need of a break.
    Very fun though.

    I did this before, and that woman at the bottom with the books confused the heck out of me. I still can’t figure it out… hints?

    Clue: She’s standing in front of a pulp machine.

    This is a pretty old quiz. It’s brilliant though.

    I did this a few weeks ago. Entertaining, although the difficulty curve on some of these is just plain awful (it took me FOREVER to get the “woman and the books” clue, as well as a few others).

    Anyone need any help just post your question and I’ll do my best to give unspoiler-ish hints.

    I’m surprised at some of their movie choices. A lot of them aren’t exactly considered classics.

    Parker,
    Here’s a clue to 3:
    It came out in 1999 and its related to mathematics.
    I can’t figure out 1,2, or 4 either.

    Just figured out “the two guys with kids”
    Try to figure out other words for guys and kids.
    Movie came out in 2006.

    Fighting girls in the graveyard was a highly anticipated movie that came out in 2002. It was the only movie of its series that wasn’t the highest grossing film of the year.
