Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Inception

Answer: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo DiCaprio plays an "extractor", a thief who enters the subconscious of a person and steals information. "Inception" won many awards, including the 2011 Hugo Award (given for science fiction or fantasy) for best dramatic presentation, long form. In a career that started in 1979 with an appearance on TV's "Romper Room" and including some blockbuster movies, DiCaprio finally won a Best Actor Oscar for 2015's "The Revenant".
2. Toy Story 3

Answer: Tim Allen

Tim Allen voices the iconic Buzz Lightyear of the "Toy Story" franchise. Unusual for an animated movie, Allen and Tom Hanks (Woody) insisted on recording their lines together to capitalize on the chemistry they had together. Although he has made a few dramatic movies, Tim Allen is mainly known for voicing characters in animated movies or in live action screwball comedies. Allen won a Golden Globe in 1995 for Best TV Comedy Actor for his well-known role in "Home Improvement".
3. The Social Network

Answer: Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg was nominated for, but didn't win, both the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network". Shortly after receiving his Oscar nomination, Eisenberg hosted "Saturday Night Live".

His opening monologue was interrupted by an audience member - Mark Zuckerberg. The movie's tagline is "You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies."
4. Black Swan

Answer: Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis stars with Natalie Portman as dancers competing for the prima ballerina spot in the production of "Swan Lake". This ballet has one dancer that plays both the role of the innocent White Swan and the sensual Black Swan. The obsessed dancers twist their actual personas to attempt to win the parts. Natalie Portman won an Oscar in 2011 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.
5. Shutter Island

Answer: Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo and Leonardo DiCaprio play U.S. Marshals investigating a strange disappearance on an island hospital/prison for the criminally insane. This tense psychological thriller is known for the number of "jump shots" - scenes where things change from shot to shot.

Some think that veteran director Martin Scorsese may have deliberately done this to add to the tension or the surreal setting. 2010 was a big year for Ruffalo. In addition to "Shutter Island", he also starred in "The Kids Are All Right" and won a Sundance Film Festival prize for directing "Sympathy for Delicious".
6. True Grit

Answer: Jeff Bridges

Jeff Bridges played a credible Rooster Cogburn, reprising the iconic role played in 1969 by John Wayne. The prolific Coen Brothers wrote and directed the 2010 version, earning 10 Academy Award nominations but no Oscar wins. Both Jeff Bridges and John Wayne were nominated for Oscars for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for playing Rooster Cogburn; only John Wayne won the Oscar for that role.
7. How to Train Your Dragon

Answer: Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler voiced the character Stoick the Vast, head of the Hairy Hooligan tribe, in 2010's "How to Train Your Dragon". Stoick is the father of the film's hero, Hiccup, an unlikely leader who nonetheless prevails against the real threat to their village - ignorance, not dragons. Butler is of Irish descent, born and raised in Scotland, and he and other actors voiced their characters with Scottish accents, not Scandinavian as would be expected for Vikings.

However, Vikings did settle in parts of Scotland, including the area of the Inner Hebrides islands where the fictitious village is shown to be located.
8. Winter's Bone

Answer: Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence, known in some circles as "JLaw", got her big movie break playing Ren in "Winter's Bone". This is a stark story set in a rural Missouri plagued by drug abuse and other social ills. Ren is fighting to keep her family intact and her absentee dad is her biggest challenge. Dad puts the family home up for collateral to post bail then disappears, some say permanently, while his teenage daughter searches for him to help the family keep a tenuous grasp on survival as a family.
9. 127 Hours

Answer: James Franco

In this movie based on a true story, James Franco plays wilderness adventurer Aron Ralston who is trapped in a desert canyon for the title time (over 5 days). The real Aron became a motivational speaker and continued his wilderness adventures. Although the movie portrayed Aron cycling in Canyonlands National Park, a statement at the end of the movie credits says, in part "The filmmakers wish to make clear that neither Aron Ralson, a dedicated wilderness advocate, nor James Franco who portrays Aron in the film, cycled or condone cycling outside of the authorized trails within National Parks."
10. The Fighter

Answer: Christian Bale

Christian Bale is known as a chameleon that can powerfully portray a wide range of characters. His role as Dicky Eklund is based on an actual person who did fight Sugar Ray Leonard and who also was featured in an HBO documentary about drug use and other issues in his South Boston neighborhood.

The 1995 documentary was titled "High on Crack Street: Lost Lives in Lowell" and Dicky Eklund is the only credited cast member.
