I did this quiz last year and it got a good reaction. Here are fifty more films for you to try. If you didn’t do that well last year then hopefully you, um, boned up for it this year.
Here’s a little quiz to see how well you know your Oscar nominees. I will list a series of real film names, grouped by related titles. Some of them will be ones nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and others will be on AVN’s list of the Top 101 Adult Videos. Can you tell which is which?
