What makes a “bad” movie? That’s just one of the questions we’re tackling in this week’s film quiz: best of luck.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £1: right here!

Film tastes differ all over the place and one person’s “bad” movie might be another person’s classic. Among this week’s 30 questions though, we’ve got a few questions on truly, objectively “bad” movies, but don’t be upset if one of your favourites is in there. Fortunately, there’s no such thing as a “bad” score – just remember that the only loser here is found frantically writing film quiz questions every Thursday evening.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. You might also say it’s a “bad” quiz this week, but let’s hope not…
