Depends on whether the implied verb before "shot" is "is" or "was."

Exactly, since shot is not past tense.

So few got There Will Be Blood.. good flick.. maybe if the clue was "had his milkshake drunk by Daniel Day Lewis" more people would have gotten it right. Most obvious one I missed was Fargo... I guessed a few other movies with woodchipper deaths in them and then gave up.

I saw the movie and thought it was good, but it was too long ago for me to remember the bowling pin death. I agree the milkshake might have jogged my memory, but I'm not complaining. I should have gotten it.

Awesome quiz! Got all of them except the 2 lowest-guessed. Loved the clues for Fargo and Rocky IV.

I liked the Rocky clue, too. If I make a variant of this quiz I would do movies by absurd death and include My Name Is Khan.. in which a character dies because he is hit in the stomach with a soccer ball kicked by an adolescent boy.

I finished my quiz.

Movies by Absurd Death

Thought it took me so long to get around to completing it that I forgot Dr. Strangelove was on this one, too, and duplicated the answer. The rest are new, though.

Michael did not watch Fredo die: he is looking out the window contemplating, but cannot see the boat. It is implied that he HEARS the gunshot, but there is no evidence that Michael saw it happen. It was his plan and his doing, but he didn't personally witness it.

Whole lot of "OOOhhhhhh" on this one. Guess I don't remember movies that vividly. Great idea for a quiz, and good movie choices. Just wish the sequels weren't required-- godfather and rocky didn't take at first.

"Beaten to death with baseball bats..." And my first thought was the copier in Office Space.

Someone also died drinking from the wrong grail in that famous scene from THE PRINCESS BRIDE. It should be accepted.

It still could be the Princess Bride. The trick was that the choice wasn't between the goblets, but between drinking and not. You should just take it as a type-in.

Say shipwreck. Boat wreck strays the mind away. The Titanic wasn't a boat. It was a ship

Ships are boats. Aircraft carriers are boats. Punts are boats. Trimarans are boats. Submarines are boats. Jet skis are boats. You sound as unknowledgeable as Vince Vaughan in Starsky and Hutch. She was a boat.

Got confused by the boat wreck in the Atlantic. Got it eventually but it was a shipwreck not a boat wreck. I knew the Russian Roulette and zombie ones, even the names of the actors who died but couldn't remember the films!

I thought FOR SURE "chose poorly, and drank from a fancy goblet" was going to refer to The Princess Bride! Never bet against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

Nope. Vizzini didn't "choose poorly". It didn't matter which cup he chose. Both were poisoned. Westley had built up a tolerance to the poison, so he was able to survive drinking the poison.

He spent so much time deciding which one to choose, never realizing he had already chosen poorly by agreeing to the game in the first place
