After nearly a year spent focused on a manuscript, The Christian Hipster’s Guide to the Movies returns. This merits a celebration (cue the dancing Ewoks). And what better celebration than a Star Wars reference in the post’s title, and some interactivity?
Are you really a Christian Hipster Cinephile?
Take this 10 question quiz and find out. Remember to keep track of your points!
1) Give yourself five points if you’ve ever had a conversation about Quentin Tarantino while standing in a church.
2) Five points each if you own any of the following: the books Blue Like Jazz or Irresistible Revolution -or- the films Little Miss Sunshine or 500 Days of Summer._
3) If you’re still recovering from Disney/Walden Media’s attempt to make The Chronicles of Narnia into a film series and you:
a) would rather the entire world forgot about everything to do with that except Tilda Swinton’s performance as the White Witch (5 points).
b) really had the biggest problem with the bad theology in that terrible attempt to bring Voyage of the Dawn Treader to the screen (3 points).
c) would rather that the entire world forgot about everything to do with that except Tilda, and Liam Neeson voicing Aslan…and James McAvoy as Tumus..and that cute kid who played Lucy…oh, and James Broadbent as the Professor… (1 point, you’re not fooling anyone).
8) If you’ve given instructions (or planned to) to a significant other to be more like (2 points for each name) A)(For a male significant other) Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Ryan Gosling, or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. B)(For a female) Audrey Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Zoe Deschanel, or Anne Hathaway.
Now total it up:
0-15 points: Look up the word “cinephile,” you might need a refresher.
16-30 points: You’ve earned the right to wear some hipster glasses, but it’s time to update your Netflix queue.
31-50 points: Not bad, Christian Hipster. Now that you’re done with this quiz, go back to posting on your tumblr.
51-70 points: Film snobs and Christian Hipsters rejoice! But don’t get too uppity, elitism is so mainstream…
