  • Are you a movie spoiler? Could you be?

    This test assesses two things. It quizzes you on your specific knowledge of a variety of often-spoiled films in all genres, revealing your overall cinematic knowledge. It also examines your ability/inclination to stay quiet with that knowledge.

    Based on your two scores, you will be placed into one of 19 possible types. Nineteen!

    Also, since this is for OKCupid and there's no date more classic than dinner and a movie, there are some recommendations for which movie-going types you should seek out and date. And for some of you, there will be tips for self-improvement. It's all in the spirit of good fun, I promise.

    Obviously, this test may contain spoilers. However, since it is multiple-choice, and most movies tested have been out for some time, you should be (mostly) safe.

    UPDATE: 1/13/10 -- added a new personality type. Also, scores were adjusted slightly to compensate for an apparently broad general film knowledge. Nice work, guys, but you'll really have to earn those Cinephile stripes.
