I lost so much time on the Lord of the Rings Movies. I wrote them in anyway possible except with a colon. Please consider accepting without a colon. Good quiz otherwise.

Strange, the colons were not showing in the Type-Ins. I have removed them from the answers, so it should work now. Thanks!

I had the same problem. Can you maybe just accept The Two Towers and The Return of the King without the whole title? It's a lot to type and a good deal of time wasted.

Level 56
Mar 15, 2016
The colons shouldn't matter, but I couldn't get them to work either. I typed them in every way I could think of, including how they were displayed when the answers were revealed. Would definitely be good to accept The Two Towers and Return of the King.

I’m not sure why or how there would still be an issue. “The Two Towers”, “Two Towers”, and “Return of the King” are all acceptable answers.

It never matters whether you write colons on Jetpunk. Must have been something else. But could you accept "Andrey Rubliov" or "Andrey Rublyov"?

Personally i would have put Schindlers list a lot higher and also added se7en and saving private ryan to the list, however understandably it is a newspapers opinion.
