Never played before? Here's some praise for the game:

"woohoo!" - Venusian

"This is the most stirring display of gallantry and sportsmanship since Mountbatten gave India back to the Punjabs." - wishbone

"These have been really fun." - Tracer Bullet

"Bus, I know it has been said before, but you really do a great job with these threads." - orangecrush18


<ul>Rules<br>
<li> The object of the game is to out-think everyone by picking answers to questions that are the most common (<FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #F9DF00">Sheep</font>) or least common (<FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #A3D867">Reverse Sheep</font>), but still correct.
<li> Example <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #F9DF00">Sheep</font> question: "Name a movie starring Sacha Baron Cohen." A good answer would be Borat and a bad answer might be Spyz.
<li> Example <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #A3D867">Reverse Sheep</font> question: "Name a movie with killer robots on Earth". Transformers might be a bad answer, but The Stepford Wives might be a good answer. (Unless everyone is trying to go as obscure as possible).
<li> Sheep scores are tallied as negative numbers. Reverse Sheep scores are tallied as positive numbers. The lowest score wins.
<li> The answers to each question are tallied up. Wrong answers in Reverse Sheep are scored two points above the most common answer. This penalty is multiplied by the Lightning Round Multiplier. Wrong answers in Sheep are not penalized.
<li> Certain rounds are considered Lightning Rounds (designated by a multiplier, such as <b>×2</b>). In these rounds, scores are adjusted by the <u>number on the multiplier</u>. A wrong answer still gets a +4 penalty in a x2 round and a +6 penalty in a x3 round. In a sheep round, a wrong answer scores normally.
<li> You may not cheat by using Google, Wikipedia, IMDB, etc. Use only what's in your head.
<li> Please send in your answers to me via PM. Place only one answer per line, without numbers or the question itself. Those who do not do this will be penalized 7 points right off the bat.
<li> For your convenience, <a href="http://www.fantasticdamage.com/blog/MoviesR1.xls">I've made an Excel file</a> where you can prepare your answers. When finished, just select the column of answers and send that in as text via PM. Don't email me the Excel file, that would be silly. (<a href="http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=r6XdV4Q49GOYN8Z5XJEqmiA">Google version here</a>).
<li> Note: Unless specifically mentioned in the question, all "film" answers have to be theatrically released films, not straight-to-DVD releases, TV films, promotional films, TV episodes, etc. Foreign films are always OK as long as they fit the question.
<li> Sheep questions are marked by an <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #F9DF00">S:</font>, Reverse Sheep questions are marked by an <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #A3D867">R:</font>.
<li> You have until at least Tuesday, June 23, at 9:00AM EDT to send in answers. The game will begin sometime that week.
</ul>

You've got 31 questions listed above but 32 in the excel spreadsheet.While the question on the first line ("The Question") might look difficult, the answer space is already filled out with "The Answer", so presumably we'll all get the same number of points for that one.

I filled out my answers and sent them before seeing that 27 was sheep instead of reverse sheep, but seeing as how I could only remember one disaster film and it's very well known, I think that'll work out just fine. Nice job on putting yet another of these together Bus. That x5 on the last question could be a real killer.

You may not cheat by using Google, Wikipedia, IMDB, etc. Use only what's in your head.What about movie titles that we may have seen inadvertently on the main page while navigating to this thread?

I'm asking hypothetically... of course. http://i42.tinypic.com/nzod9l.gif

Yeah, i had an answer or two pop into my head because of that as well. Luckily me and soem friends were talking about where some obscure film festivals were just last week. Hopefully the one I was able to remember was in the International federation of producers.

Gah! There's one question were going super-obscure would've helped me so much. I figured this was one of those questions were people would go for the super-obscure but that's not the case.Isn't going super-obscure always the best idea? If 10 people come up with the super-obscure answer, then it's probably not very obscure... or at least not superlatively.

Not necessarily, in one of the video game ones someone answered Madden and nobody else did.I've played these games a few times too. ;) Going obvious is risky, but going super-obscure is a much better idea if you can. The problem is when you think what's super obscure really isn't.

Thank God. When I saw all those wrong answers getting 22 points, I was sure I would wind up a member of the 20 Point Club.

AllMovieGuide lists both Big and The Terminal as romantic comedies.

What about <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0430770/"><b>The Women</b></a>?

Haven't seen it, but imdb doesn't list a single male in the cast and I don't think the movie's about lesbians.

I really hope there's a "favorite bare chested male movie" question in the Movie Talk Sheep II: Electric Boogaloo.

Weekend at Bernie's FTW!

They do not list The Naked Gun as a romantic comedy. I've not seen The Terminal.
