Fun Trivia : Quizzes : Movies : Quiz Creation Notes for Movies : Interesting Info Sections

dateNew helpRandom


Quizzes are required to have interesting information for every question. This must be factually-based and it should support the question/answer, not repeat them. If you don?t have any interesting info to add, your question probably won?t be of interest to players either, and you should replace it.

When writing interesting info for quizzes on specific movies, assume your players have seen the movie. When writing info for mixed quizzes, take into account that, for any given question, a number of players will not have seen the movie you?re asking about.

The Movies category has additional info requirement for specific sorts of quizzes/questions, as follows. In any of these cases, if the information needed is given in the question, then the author can put something else in the info field, but the required information must be present somewhere.

Quotes Questions
Info must put the quote in context (who said it, when, to whom, why, what the response was). A really good quiz might discuss the subtext or relevance of the quote for the characters involved. This section, when well written, will remind players who know the movie but got the question wrong about when the quote is said.
Quote: ?They call me Cha Cha because I'm the best dancer at St. Bernadette's.?
Info: Just after Cha Cha said that, Rizzo shot back, ?With the worst reputation.? Kenickie, Rizzo?s boyfriend, was taking Cha Cha to the American Bandstand competition, so Rizzo took Cha Cha?s old flame, and the rival of the T-Birds, Scorpion. At the competition, when Cha Cha and Kenickie were disqualified, Cha Cha pushed in on Sandy and Danny, sending Sandy off the floor and winning with Danny. This of course drove a rift between the young lovebirds!

Lyrics Questions
The Movies category treats lyrics like quotes and requires the same info for them as for quotes questions. If that cannot be provided, it might be better to submit your quiz to the Music category, where the focus is on the music itself.
Lyric: ?Look at me, I?m Sandra Dee.?
Info: Rizzo was making fun of Sandy at the sleepover, comparing her virginal image to that of screen start Sandra Dee. She also compared her to Doris Day in the song. At the end of the song, Sandy walked out of the bathroom and asked if Rizzo was making fun of her, to which Rizzo replied, ?Some people are so touchy.?

Name the Movie Questions
Info must include a plot synopsis (in your own words, of course!).
Movie: Grease
Info: ?Grease? told the story of a group of high school seniors, the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies, who navigate classes, dances, and drag races. The central lovebirds, Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson, must overcome social posturing and peer pressure to find a middle ground where they can be together.

Name the Person Questions
Info must discuss the importance of the person in question playing the role/directing the film/etc. Why did it matter that that actor, rather than any other actor, played the role?
Question: Who played Danny Zuko?
Answer: John Travolta
Info: Travolta was just coming off ?Saturday Night Fever?, so was already well-known for his dancing talents, but here he got to show off his singing as well. He?d put on his dancing shoes again later in his career, though, in films like ?Pulp Fiction? and ?Michael?.

Tagline Questions
Info must explain how the tagline applies to the film or what parts of the film it refers to.
Tagline: ?Grease is the word.?
Movie: ?Grease?
Info: Taken from the song sung during the cartoon title sequence, the phrase sums up the attitude of the film, that ?grease? is a time, a feeling, an unconventionality, and a faith that we can make it far if we start believing in who we are.
