I didn't like that almost all of these accepted a very simple answer. I understand that there are 100 answers and that it's not always easy to remember these things in full, but "don" is acceptable for Vito Corleone and "John" for John McClane? Can we make it somewhat of a challenge? Maybe give more time on the clock? Still a great quiz. I'm just picky, I guess.

Ten minutes is plenty of time and the average score is around 40, so I think the quiz is already challenging enough.
