I really enjoyed this. It was taxing enough to be a fun challenge, but not tooooo difficult. Thank you for your work in creating it. You did a good job as I had never heard of the movie 'Grave of the Fireflies' but managed to guess it from your clue.

Fun quiz ! I went completely wrong on some of these at first : Swift and the livid => Quick and the dead Fuschia Jaguar => Pink Cadillac ^^ Not complaining, just commenting :) It's nice to be able to guess your way through some of the ones you don't know

Grave of the Fireflies is an excellent (but very sad) animated film made by Studio Ghibli, who can best be described as the Japanese equivalent of Disney. It's well worth watching.

I couldn't get "The Quick and the Dead" out of my head for the 1st clue, even though I knew it didn't fit. Once I saw the answer I was glad I didn't get it. I believe the "Fastchise" to be an American catastrophe, slightly above that city in Ohio or its river that catches fire.

As others have said, kilometer is not a synonym for mile. A kilometer is a good 2,000 feet shorter than a mile.
