So, there is this app called 'QuizUp' and it's number #1 on the free iPhone app store.

It is a user-submitted (after approval) trivia app with a vast amount of content. The movie section is pretty cool but THERE IS NO FILM SCORE SECTION?!?!

Of course, I immediately sent off to request that a category for 'Film Score' trivia be added.

I received an e-mail back stating that, for a new category to be added, 300 or more questions must be submitted, so, I figured this was as good a place as any if anyone wanted to add some film score questions!

The template I received had these requirements:

Every question needs to have 4 answers choices, 3 wrong and 1 correct.

Delivery: We need to get the questions delivered in a spreadsheet (Excel, Numbers, Google Docs, Open Office) where the first column contains the questions, the second column the right answers and the next three columns the wrong answers.

Character Length Limits: The questions should not be longer than 130 characters with spaces and the answers 30 characters with spaces.

All of the Answer Choices should start with an upper case letter.


So, I have a few of the following:

1. Which of these films was NOT scored by John Williams? (first choice must always be correct answer) Batman, Superman, Jaws, Star Wars: A New Hope

2. Which film composer received his only Oscar for his scoring of the 1995 film 'The Lion King'? Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newman, Elmber Bernstein, John Williams


You get the idea - I'll be working to add some to the list, if any of you guys want to help with the 300 necessary to get this thing on their app, let me know! You could write the questions in this forum, or private message me, e-mail is cool too, I suppose.

Who has been called the Mozart of film music?- Georges Delerue, Alfred Newman, Dimitri Tiomkim,Jerry Goldsmith.

So what is the answer? I'm guessing it's Jerry. I've also heard Morricone dubbed the same. And my own impression is that Williams is actually the closest to a Mozart of film music.

The Beethoven of film music? That would have to be Herrmann.
