Quote from: Leon on 12 February 2024, 04:58:03 PMI'll post my answers seeing as I think I've only got 4 of them!

New Round - Pubs, Bars and Taverns

1   During which Musical does inn-keeper Monsieur Thénardier sing the show-stopper 'Master of the House'?

No idea, I don't think I've ever seen a musical other than Grease?!

2   In which soap opera is the 'The Bull' the village pub?

I'm pretty sure it's not the usual Eastenders, Emmerdale, Corrie ones.  So either a 'modern' soap like Hollyoaks, or The Archers maybe?

3   In which fantasy city is the inn 'The Broken Drum' – You can't beat it! After it is burned down and rebuilt it is renamed 'The Mended Drum' – you will be beaten.

Bah!  It's a Pratchett question but I can't remember the name of the town!

4   Which movie starts in the Club Obi Wan?

Temple of Doom!  (I read too much IMDB!)

5   Which movie, the third of the 'Three Flavours Cornetto' trilogy, is about a pub crawl of twelve pubs that ends up at the titular pub, interrupted by an alien invasion.

The World's End.

6   The Prancing Pony sees the meeting of important characters in which seminal book?

Lord of the Rings.

7   George Orwell described his ideal pub in an essay in 1946. What was it called?

Not a clue on this one.

8   What is the name of either of the pubs located in the village of Hogsmeade in Harry Potter? I only want one – no bonus point for both.

Never read a Harry Potter book or watched a movie either...

9   In which movie does the lead character propose the plan "Let's go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over" more than once?

Shaun of the Dead.

10   The Black Prince, in Black Prince Road, Kennington, is a real pub that appears in which 007 pastiche, where the mentor character is shown using a lot of hi-tech weaponry during a pub fight?

Only a guess going from the word 'pastiche', it must be either Johnny English or The Kingsman?

2 is the Bull in Ambridge Leon....you dona listen to Radio 4 much?

3   White has Twenty possible moves in chess. (16 for pawns, 4 for Knights)


The pedant in me would like to point out that technically white has 21 possible legal moves - 20 as you describe and laying down his king to give up and resign  :D

Go away.
Then go away again.
and again.
Keep going away until you reach a big sign that says "Do not Go Away past this sign"
Then I want you to be a Brave Little Soldier...

And Go Away anyway!!!!!*

The 'I said it first ' in me would like to point out: 'I said it first'! :D
QuoteThat's what I thought - 20 as described - but you could (although why you would want to I haven't the foggiest) resign - so 21?
But of all those you are only allowed to carry out one move. So possibly only 1 legal move from all the above possibilities.

Pubs bars and taverns answers
1   Master of the House is performed in Les Miserable.
2   The Bull is in "The Archers"
3   The Drum is an inn in the bifurcated city of Ankh-Morpork.
4   Club Obi Wan is the nightclub at the start of 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'.
5   The titular pub in the pub crawl is 'The Worlds End', staring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Ironically the exteriors are filmed in Letchworth, which was founded as a 'dry' town.
6   It is Aragorn and the hobbits who meet at the "Prancing Pony" in 'Lord of the Rings' – I'll accept 'The Fellowship of the Ring.
7   Orwell's ideal pub, and the essay titled after it, was 'The Moon under Water'.
8   The Harry Potter pubs are "The Three Broomsticks" or "The Hog's Head". Just one needed for one point.
9   The plan to go down the Winchester is in "Shaun of the Dead", the first of the Cornetto trilogy.
10   The Black Prince is in Kingsman: the Secret service. It is Eggsy's local where Harry beats up the gang.

Round Four (I think)

Movie Mashup

I will give the actors in a film, and a basic plot, I want the film. However, I won't give you the actor's names, but rather other famous roles they have played.

1   James Bond and Han Solo try to find the secret of immortality before the Nazis get it. So work out the 2 actors, and give the film they starred with that plot.

2   Gandalf and Captain Picard fight over the future of mankind.

3   Ethan Hunt and Jim Morrison compete to be the best fighter pilot.

4   Jacques Clouseau, Evelyn Tremble and General George Patton try to stop nuclear war.

5   Henry II, George Smiley and Alexis Zorba fight the Turks in the First World War.

6   Mr Darcy teaches Eddie the Eagle to be a suave spy, while Nick Fury attempts mass murder.

7   Santa Clause and Forrest Gump voice the action figures trying to get to their owner's new house.

8   Shakespeare's lover Viola de Lesseps does the paperwork for Sherlock Holmes, while he wears a hi-tech suit of armour.

9   Agent Kay chases Deckard, who is trying to find the proof he is innocent of his wife's murder.

10   Drunken superhero Agent Jay fights his ex-wife, Queen Ravenna, the step-mother of Snow-White.


And if 1 and 2 are not the greatest 'Elevator pitches' ever, then I don't know what is!
