I was sure the Costner flick would be Prince of Thieves. Not my favorite actor, but can't argue with either of those soundtracks.

Glad QM included the word impact in the clue or I would never have gotten that one. Finished all with 1:58 left - I think this is the first movie quiz I've gotten 100%.

I still think there must be a better movie-related question for 2006 than Mel Gibson's real-life bad behavior.

Plenty of interesting movies available for a movie quiz instead of some random tabloid story about a director that already appears in the quiz. But there's always Apocalypto if you love Mel so much. Lives of Others, Prestige, Children of Men, Pan's Labyrinth, Little Miss Sunshine, The Departed, Babel, Borat, The Queen, The Last King of Scotland, Volver, Zwartboek, Blood Diamond, Letters from Iwo Jima etc.
