Get the initials: JJ, U, VW, SP, JL, RR, HM, CD, P, VH
  32. 32. ● An oven. A fireplace. A fire that probably started in the dining room of JL’s aptly named W Hall (maybe his favorite animal) gutted it before he could move in. ● The house also features in RR’s popular young adult mythological series. The house’s vestibule could be thought to lend it’s name to HM’s Booker Prize winning book about Thomas Cromwell often confused with a later Cromwell. ● Add a twist to his name to get CD’s famous second novel.

  38. 38. Q1. In a January 2013 interview, Sharen Davis said that much of the costume design for this film was inspired mostly from spaghetti westerns and art. One of the costumes in which the character X dresses up as a valet, inspired by a 1770 Thomas Gainsborough painting, stood out for audiences and the characters alike. Quoting the movie, Bettina: Are you actually a ____ ___? X: Yeah. Bettina: You mean you chose to dress like that? Another reason for this particular costume choice could be that in the 18th century, wearing this colour predominantly by a particular sect of people meant celebrating their liberation, which is again an underlying theme of the movie. ID X/Movie.
  39. 39. ANSWER Django Unchained (The Blue Boy)
  40. 40. Q2. This 2008 drama television series is hailed as one of the greatest of all time. Many of its episodes, especially from the last season, were the highest rated episodes of all times. A particular sequence in the episode “Gliding Over All” of the last season is inspired from a similar sequence in a 1972 crime film where a similar deed is carried out. The act is referred to as “harder than the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden” by characters who carry out the action in the episode. ID the show and the movie and a brief explanation of what sequence.

The painting came with a note, “Dear Sharon, thought you might like this, Love Melina”. Melina died of Kaposi’s Sarcoma Lesions as a result of better known medical condition.

After this movie was shot, the director then thought later, “What if this little guy never got back onto the ship?” This was then the basis of another movie whose main character was inspired by Puck. What are the 2 movies in question?
  47. 47. ANSWER ET: The Extra Terrestrial Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  48. 48. Q6. The answer to this question related to a certain type of movies and TV shows has been widely debated throughout many years. Some say it is done because of its mere ease of design while others say it is done as it simplifies the part as much as the entire figure is simplified. But in Japan, this trope has regularly been ignored for several reasons: 1. Yakuza members generally do this act (which results in this trope) if not able to pay back debt or as a punishment 2. This is taken as a derogatory reference to the burakumin class which is being compared to an animal 3. This also means death in Japan. What trope is being spoken about?
  49. 49. ANSWER Animated characters having 4 fingers.
  50. 50. Q7. This act was done generally in the army and when it was done it generally meant that if a Special Force member was going to die, he would do this as a warning to his fellow soldiers. What he meant was “Don’t fuck with me, I’m going over the hill.” In a 1976 film, a character does this in the middle of the movie and gets a major change in character development from then on. It makes sense as he was a veteran of the marines and might have been exposed to this while fighting in the Vietnam War. Which film? Also ID what is being spoken about.

The dinner held in honour of Gauguin before his departure for Tahiti in 1891 included the recitation of a certain piece of literature also called Y in which the word X is very prominent. Although Gaugin denied the fact that anything in the painting references the ominous creation in piece of literature, the reference seems very obvious. ID the name of painting.

  56. 56. Q10. A British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor is suing a certain artist and others involved in the video’s production, alleging that the gold print patterns that appear in roughly 20 seconds of the music video infringe on her artworks, which are painted in a similar style, using materials including 24-karat gold.

  79. 79. Gaming: Spending most of his time in the Curragh Camp, the main training base for the Irish Army, Brendan Greene developed an interest for cyberpunk RPGs including the likes of Metal Gear Solid in his formative years. When he was stuck in Brazil following an ugly divorce, he stumbled upon a survival shooter game Arma 2 , falling in love with a specific mod DayZ. He got his friend in Canada to rent a server for him, started running his own script and modding the game on his own. He took inspiration from a famous 2000 Japanese dystopian film (adapted from the novel a year previous to that), combining exploration and scavenging elements of a survival game with last man standing gameplay. Although the mod became widespread, he adopted an alias, presumably to keep himself anonymous. How has Greene’s alias seen a surge in popularity in the past year? What film did Greene use as inspiration, which inspired its own genre?
