Movie Trivia Time!

Ok all you fans of Lentari!  I’m looking to create a new contest for some signed copies of my books and thought this would be the perfect way to do it.  Now, seeing how I fancy myself a connoisseur of virtually all types of movies, you can see where I came up with the idea of a movie trivia contest!

Now, to be fair, I will admit that I haven’t watched many horror movies as I haven’t found that many that I really like.  I think Aliens is my favorite, and not just because I became friends with one of the actors.  So I think I need to see if you guys have just as much useless movie trivia in your head as I do mine.   Therefore this one will be a trial run!

The rules:

  1. No using Google if you don’t know the answer.
  2. Try to avoid looking at what everyone else has answered.
  3. If you know the answer and it’s clear that others don’t, no gloating!
  4. Be respectful.
  5. No spamming allowed.  Spammers will be deleted and their IPs will be added to my Troll list (it effectively blocks you from accessing all aspects of the blog)

So what movies am I going to draw from?  Well, here in my office/man cave, I have several bookshelves FULL of movies and anything is fair game.  Chances are it’ll be fantasy/sci-fi related but anything sitting on one of those shelves could be used!   Mwahahaha!   Let’s see how you do with these.  We’ll start with an easy one then each question gets a little harder!

Question #1:   What’s the name of the creatures in Tremors?

Question #2:  What type of ship did Boss Nass give the jedi when they left the Gungan city in SW:  Phantom Menace?

Question #3:  Which Star Trek movie did Christian Slater have a cameo in?

Good luck!  Again, this is a trial run so I can get a feel for how good you guys are!

  • You’re more than welcome. Good luck! Stay tuned. New movie trivia questions will be posted tomorrow!

    Good night!

  • it does say VistaBasic on the sticker.you’re right. that product key is not for the program.thanks for the help. i really appreciate it. goodnight.

  • Ah. I see the problem. In all the years I’ve been working on computers, which is approaching the 20 year mark, not once have I seen a product key for MS Office on the side of the computer. The official product key for the operating system is 99.9999% there all the time. Read that sticker. Does it say Windows XP Home, or Vista Basic, or maybe Windows 7 Pro?

    The codes may look the same but they are only intended for that piece of software. And, believe it or not, it gets even more technical than that. If you’re using MS Word 2007 then it’s going to want specifically the product key for MS Word 2007, not MS Office 2007 Home & Student edition, or MS Office 2007 Small Business edition, and so on.

    If I were to take a guess, your computer came pre-installed with a DEMO of MS Office 2007. The trial period has ended and now it wants the code. Check the documentation that came with the computer. If you have a product key for MS Office 2007 then you’re home free. Otherwise it won’t work.

    If you need to write a paper for school you could always use Wordpad, which is free and installed by default on all Windows computers.

    Did any of that make sense?

  • im not sure if i remember correctly, but i dont think a system restore ever took place

  • it was never reinstalled. the only version i have is 2007.

  • i also have ms word processor and it works ok. i never really used ms word when i got the computer so i never noticed that it asked for it. i wanted to use it to write a paper for school a few years ago.it wouldnt work and i couldnt find anyone that could help until now and i need it to work.i entered the product key that is on a sticker on the side and the computer said it was incorrect. i tried a few more times and got the same result.

  • Still here. Ok, we’ll do this here.

    Do you have any other versions of MS Word on your computer? Word 2003, or 2010, or even 2013? Have you been able to use MS Word 2007 without any problems before?

    I’m curious why it’d be asking for the product key again. Usually that won’t happen unless it was uninstalled/reinstalled, or maybe a System Restore took place. Anything like that happen?

  • are you still there?

  • i dont have an email either. im sorry. i dont mean to make this hard.im only 14.

  • For those of you that mentioned it, thx for the birthday wishes!

  • Whitman – email me. Describe as much of the problem as possible. Tell me about the computer, the specs, o/s, etc. Problem with MS Office? Any other versions of Office on it? Use: jmpoole (at) gmail dot com.

  • i dont have a facebook. is there any other possible way? my mom is on your facebook,so you might be able to reach me through her. (not tonight. she thinks i’m asleep.)

  • The correct answers are:

    1: Graboids. Tremors is my all-time favorite movie!!
    2. Bongo. WTF was George Lucas thinking when he created the Gungans?
    3. Star Trek VI – far and away the best classic Star Trek movie, IMO.

    Several of you got ’em all right! Congrats! Stay tuned. Round two of the trials is coming sometime tomorrow! Should I make the questions harder and from more obscure movies? Brett, remember who you’re challenging, my friend! I worked part time at a video store for several years! :)

  • Whitman – come find me on Facebook and I’ll give you a hand. That way the thread doesn’t turn into tech support. :)

  • 1.Graboids
    2 IDK lol
    3 IDK
    well I know one answer!!

  • By the way, i need you to help me with a computer problem. whenever i open microsoft word 2007, it asks me to enter my product key. i entered it, but it wouldn’t take it. i already checked for typing errors and didn’t find any.

  • 1-graboids 2-bongo. I watched that movie yesterday. 3-Star Trek VI. Mom is a big star trek fan.

  • I love Sci Fi too… but while seeing the movies honestly couldn’t tell ya

  • 1 – which tremors? There was more than one. Ass blasters was one of them. Hubby thinks the other started with a g or c. Grabites?
