I didn't see any of the Star Wars movies until college when a boyfriend forced me to... they sucked, just like I said they would.

You checked off 130 out of 170 on this list!

Some of those were way not iconic

148/170 and probably a few more that were more forgettable than iconic.

134 of 170. Plus, I own several of them, some on VHS even. Ah, good times, good times.

I already forgot my score. It was in the 60s I think, but at least half a dozen I only watched recently in an attempt to become more au fait with references made by my American friends. Or you lot. Ah well.

25 out of 170 and some of those I didn't watch on purpose, and many of the others I wouldn't watch on a bet.

... I would find it hard to limit my favorites on that list to a mere twenty-five films.

NEW QUIZ

The New York Times asks can you read a person's emotions by their eyes.

It's hard for me, only 23 out of 36, of the small, B&W, poor resolution photos, but I found I did better with first impressions than trying to think about them.
Good hunting.

Heh... that test was originally developed for people on the spectrum. I've taken it before, and not surprisingly, I did fairly badly on it. But I fervently maintain that I'd get a great score if they made a similar test for mouths.

34 of 36, but I couldn't believe I was getting one after another correct, because I often wasn't sure. So I deliberately answered one wrong, just to see if I could. So it should be 35/36. I'm surprised I did so well, because I often don't get people.

32/36

there were a couple I couldn't read at all and a couple i felt were ambiguously similar, like mistrustful and worried or something like that pair.
