Friday Movie Trivia -- your last chance to play before the Winners are Announced! Can't Post

This is the last Trivia Contest for this Opening Week of our new Board!

Here are today's questions:

1. On what day does Gandalf tell Aragorn to look for him to return (at Helm's Deep)?

2. What color eyes do the specters have in the Dead Marshes?

3. Who takes a nap by some ruined masonry when the Fellowship camps by a Lake?

4. Where does Gandalf lose his hat in the FOTR?

5. How many warriors has Legolas killed at Helm's Deep when Gimli has slain two?

6. How many Academy Award nominations did TTT receive?

BONUS ROUND:

I seem to have confused many of you with my spellcheck question last time. So, here are two "normal" questions, taken from other Trivial Pursuit cards:

7. What color wax does Gandalf use to seal the ring inside an envelope?

8. How many shooting units were filming concurrently at the height of the Trilogy's production?

I'll tally these up by NOON Saturday (US EST) and then post the answers and the rankings for all who played.

I will also have my math checked by an independent panel of judges before posting.

Have fun!

My guesses [In reply to] Can't Post

1. On what day does Gandalf tell Aragorn to look for him to return (at Helm's Deep)? On the fifth day, at dawn, look to the east. (P.S. Does this remind anyone else of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and the "Right, you stay 'ere, till I come back. And don't let anyone in." scene?)

2. What color eyes do the specters have in the Dead Marshes? Hmmm. White?

3. Who takes a nap by some ruined masonry when the Fellowship camps by a Lake? I'm lost. Bill the Pony??

4. Where does Gandalf lose his hat in the FOTR? Moria?

5. How many warriors has Legolas killed at Helm's Deep when Gimli has slain two? Seventeen?

6. How many Academy Award nominations did TTT receive? Agggh. I'm not doing well here. Another guess: 11?

"I stepped out of my body to let God slide in; although I'm still dressed in flesh that I spiritually died in. Alive in Christ a new creation started breathin', Life exists and through this came completion. ... I'm not that person anymore (more!)! That's what blood was shed for! No longer a failure, livin' life more abundantly, therefore you'll never see me livin' less than victory."
John Reuben.

"Desperation, needing You; every last breath I scream for You. Shatter me into a million pieces, make me new. ... Break me, mold me, make me what You want me to be; I am Yours, for You to use, so take and replace me with You."
Family Force 5.

"Under a light in Bethlehem, I was sifting through the sand; the saline burned my eyes, I was looking for Your hand. I gave up on myself, and left my pride disarmed; I cried out 'I'm alone!' and found myself in Your arms. 'Rest in Me, oh, My love; I have loved you before the world began. Rest in Me, oh, My love; you'll never wander too far to reach My hand.'"

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

TGIF- these quizzes are getting harder and harder [In reply to] Can't Post

Brain's tired.Tongue

1. On what day does Gandalf tell Aragorn to look for him to return (at Helm's Deep)?

On the 'sun'day.

2. What color eyes do the specters have in the Dead Marshes?

a whiter shade of pale

3. Who takes a nap by some ruined masonry when the Fellowship camps by a Lake?

Well Sam snoozes by the RIVER Anduin. Do they even stop by a lake?

4. Where does Gandalf lose his hat in the FOTR?

The Moria Texas Holdem off at the bridge. Lost the shirt off his back too.

5. How many warriors has Legolas killed at Helm's Deep when Gimli has slain two?

You mean warriorcs? Well we know he shot quite a few with arrows but were they killed? No way of knowing.

6. How many Academy Award nominations did TTT receive?

Not enough, stupid Beautiful MindMad.

7. What color wax does Gandalf use to seal the ring inside an envelope?

The color of blood, Frodo should have taken the clue.

Well, if you count Viggo's non-stop camera shoots and Sean's little-big shoot that would be six.

Oh you suck lemons big time... [In reply to] Can't Post

And I say that in the nicest possible way... WinkHeart

1. On what day does Gandalf tell Aragorn to look for him to return (at Helm's Deep)?

On the fifth day. "At dawn, look to the east."

2. What color eyes do the specters have in the Dead Marshes?

Dead white.

3. Who takes a nap by some ruined masonry when the Fellowship camps by a Lake?

Depends on how you look at it. In certain frames, Sam is sleeping, in others, he's awake. *tsk tsk* Continuity, people!

4. Where does Gandalf lose his hat in the FOTR?

Balin's tomb. Trying to wield a sword & a staff while trying to look like you know what you're doing is hard enough... try making a fashion statement while you're at it!

5. How many warriors has Legolas killed at Helm's Deep when Gimli has slain two?

17... it's hard to forget the comedic parts of a war.

6. How many Academy Award nominations did TTT receive?

They were nominated? I thought those were consolation prizes. Um... four?

7. What color wax does Gandalf use to seal the ring inside an envelope?

Dark red.

8. How many shooting units were filming concurrently at the height of the Trilogy's production?

You're really asking too much now... I have no idea... I would say seven, but my first guess is usually wrong, so I'll guess five?
