3)   Name the two actresses who co-starred with Michelle Yeoh as two-thirds of the Heroic Trio.

Special thanks to Dragon Dynasty & Special Ops Media for the prize.



Eragon/Eldest: Like Dragons?  Well, get two for the price of (n)one in this omnibus edition of Christopher Paolini’s first two entries in his Inheritance Cycle so generously donated by the wonderful folks at Random House. All you have to do is answer three simple questions:

1)      Name the greatest Dragon in Japanese Kaiju film history and three films he’s been in.  Totally subjective, but if you’ve been reading this site, you’ll know who I mean.

2)      Angela, the witch character of the Inheritance Cycle has a companion. What is its name and type of creature is it?

A)     A werewolf   B) A cat  C) A dragon  D) A werecat  E) A ferret

3)      One of the most beautiful cinematic dragons was actually created for a surprisingly violent live-action Disney film.  Name the film that also starred a Peer of the British Realm.


The first correct answer gets the Eragon/Eldest omnibus.

James Brown:  I Got the Feelin' DVD sets:  Yes, babies, we’re handing you the 3-DVD box set of the Godfather of Soul in the 60’s.  The sets (generously donated by the awesome folks at Shout Factory) include the documentary The Night James Brown Saved Boston, a concert disc of the GFoS Live at Boston Garden and JB Live at the world famous Apollo Theatre in New York.  Also included are extra performances including a clip from James Brown’s iconic 1964 performance on the T.A.M.I show.  Here’s the quiz.

1)      Which upstart British band said that following James Brown at the 1964 TA.M.I. Show was the biggest mistake of their lives?

2)      “Night Train” was the favourite workout song of which legendary boxing champion?

3)      Name the title and position of James Brown’s highest charting Billboard Hot 100 single.

My Blueberry Nights DVD:  Heavens to Wong Kar-Wai (- who graciously allowed us an exclusive interview here!),  thanks to the kindness of the good folks at Special Ops Media we actually have a copy of the legendary Hong Kong director's latest opus, starring Jude Law, Rachel Weisz and Norah Jones.  All you’ve gotta to do grab one is answer these queries.

1)      Name both the international singing star who made her debut and the legendary Hong Kong actress who made her film exit in WK-W’s Chungking Express.

2)      What is the name of the fictional detective WK-W wants to bring to the screen with Tony Leung Chiu-Wai in the starring role?

3)      Name the martial arts figure Wong Kar-Wai is filming his next project about and that person’s most famous student.


The first correct answer grabs the pie.
