Movie Talk (Reverse) Sheep, Round 2 Eclectic Vindaloo



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

"These things are the most fun way to waste time at work since GemCraft." - maxfisher

"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


    Rules

  • The object of the game is to out-think everyone by picking answers to questions that are the most common (Sheep) or least common (Reverse Sheep), but still correct.
  • Example Sheep question: "Name a movie starring Sacha Baron Cohen." A good answer would be Borat and a bad answer might be Spyz.
  • Example Reverse Sheep 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).
  • Sheep scores are tallied as negative numbers. Reverse Sheep scores are tallied as positive numbers. The lowest score wins.
  • 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.
  • Certain rounds are considered Lightning Rounds (designated by a multiplier, such as 2). In these rounds, scores are adjusted by the number on the multiplier. 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.
  • You may not cheat by using Google, Wikipedia, IMDB, etc. Use only what's in your head. NEW! A few questions () contain links to resources which you may check to answer that question.
  • 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.
  • For your convenience, I've made an Excel file 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. (Google version here).
  • Note: Unless specifically mentioned in the question, all film/movie 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.
  • Sheep questions are marked by an S:, Reverse Sheep questions are marked by an R:.
  • You have until at least Monday, June 29, at 8:00AM EDT to send in answers. The game will begin sometime that week.

Multipliers that big basically render a number of the questions meaningless, especially when there are so few possible answers for the high-multiplier questions. A reverse sheep question that has many possible answers and no multiplier is going to get someone maybe four or five points max, which is still less than a one-person difference for the last question.

I considered that, but this will makes the end more exciting.

Bus, for #21, must the third word be a word that would be capitalized when adhering to conventions of the English language? You say it must begin with "W"; you don't say it can begin with "W" or "w".

It can begin with a "w" or a "W" the letter is important, not the capitalization.

Is it OK to use movies we see on the top 250 list to answer other questions?

Sure. Just don't click through to see if they fill the requirements of other questions.
