  1. I’m a Jedi Master apparently. I would submit that the test should me much tougher though. The questions are mostly from mainstream movies.

    • Well done, sir. The force is evidently with you. PS: I deliberately make these quite easy, as my target audience is quite young.

      • Would consider myself a fan of TV SF rather than film, so won’t be getting 100% here, but…(1) must be Hitchhiker’s but don’t know which character; (2) I suspect is Yoda but don’t know from which film; (3) is either Spock or somebody speaking *to* Spock (doesn’t Spock claim that the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many?) from Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan; (4) is obviously Planet of the Apes but no idea which character of which version – will try Charlton Heston in the original; (5) not a clue.
