About This Quiz

Cinema changes with the times, or it dies. Film is the defining cultural art form of our age, and with its various permutations on TV and streaming platforms becoming more and more popular, we still define much of our cultural experiences by the major motion pictures we see, even if we end up seeing them on Amazon or Netflix.

When one hears the words "movie star," an image comes to mind. Who pops into your head? Is it a current celluloid heartthrob or someone from another era? Assuming you aren't a film student, it's very likely that the person you think of at those words is someone famous from your formative years.

The movies you absorb define who you are, how you speak, and the cultural references that allow you to understand dinner party conversations. The movies you see say a lot about you, your priorities, your tastes and even your positions on defining cultural issues. By telling us which movies you've seen, you allow us to pinpoint when you were born, and thus how old you are. Care to give this quiz a try? Remember, there are no wrong answers!
