Couldn't the clue for Diamonds are forever also work for Die Another Day?

I suppose it depends on your definition of 'using.' In DAD, the weapon was funded with diamonds, but used mirrors to create the laser, in DaF, the laser was created through the diamonds.

I tried Die Another Day at first also. Not sure whether I'm for it being added or not, although you have a good point, plattitude.

"Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks."

Anyone else think that the clue here doesn't represent the film at all? It reads like someone hasn't watched it, it's not about a plan, it's about stopping the plan from being executed and lots of discussions about the consequences.

I also was confused because Christoph Waltz is Austrian but plays a German in Django.

Lastly, there's a misspelling of "inbred". I like this series though.

No, I think the clue is spot-on. Much of the movie may be about attempts to stop the plan, but the clue is absolutely correct that there is a "crazy American general" (Ripper) who plans to nuke the Soviets. Without that, there is no movie.

While dr. strange does wear a cape, and it could be argued that he fought his greatest foe in that movie, the name Caped Crusader is mostly used when referring to Batman

I was surprised that Dog Day Afternoon didn't make the list. I guess my age is showing again, but it was Pacino at his best.

I think there's nostalgia in the film world for mature movies of the 70s like Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, French Connection, etc. You can see that the new Joker movie tries to emulate them. If you're a young movie lover there's a good chance that you also like Dog Day Afternoon. Unfortunately, the rest of the generation is missing out.

The one that stood out for me was "The Day of the Jackal." You could do worse than watching nothing but movies from 1973, one of the best years ever for great movies.

Although I figured out the intended answer, the Darkest Hour also involves the allied forces evacuating from the beaches at you-know-where.

For me, Dumb and Dumber is the second best film ever made - just after Mulan (1998 version, obviously). Donnie Darko would be somewhere high up on the list too.

Sad to see Downfall leave the quiz (I believe it was here before), it always reminded me of those old YouTube memes that captioned Hitler's rant incorrectly

If the D is silent, should it still count?

Same question if nobody watched or wants to watch Drumline.

*neither serious.
