Generally, you either know something or you don't. There's not a huge amount of difficulty in that. The difficulty is defined by how many people will know them. If you knew them all, congratulations; many others clearly didn't.

I always mix up Seventh Seal and Seven Samurai, so I tried spelling "Kurosawa" seven different ways. Ditto for John Carpenter and Wes Craven; I can never keep them straight. I knew WALL-E was "Andrew...something," and I only got Terminator 3 because I remember Christian Bale kept shouting "McG!" in that video in which he goes completely insane on the cinematographer. Fun quiz.

Wasn't it just some poor lighting technician that he went mental on? I don't remember him shouting McG but I only listened to it twice.

Only got 6. Was trying to write Almodovar over and over again. Though quite so proud I remembered the Matrix brothers.

I only know McG as the director of Supernatural. Never knew he did movies.

The Home Alone director is just Chris Columbus, not Christopher. I checked the film credits on IMDB, as well as his Wikipedia page, and I can find no reference that he has ever been called Christopher.

The first 500 years or so were fine, then he had to change his name from all the modern backlash.

True! From The Guardian (2013), "His father, Alex, the son of Italian immigrants, named him “Chris not Christopher, because of a long-lost wish by his father to have a Chris in the family.” (Columbus’s grandmother had refused to inflict the name on any of her 12 children.) “Most people think I’ve changed it to Chris and I say to them, ‘Are you insane?"
