“You’re breathtaking!” This week’s film quiz has 30 more questions about movies, some of them featuring the most excellent Keanu Reeves.
As Keanu Reeves once said… “Whoa” – sorry, but does the man really need any more introduction than that? With more than 30 years on screen, he’s rarely been far from his next big hit. In the week that he celebrates his 57th birthday, we humbly dedicate this week’s specialist round to a movie star whose very name means cool (it’s Hawaiian, look it up). And on a much less cool note, there’s the usual jumble of cinematic trivia to untangle in the other two rounds.
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. And remember, be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!
