We were lucky enough to bag a spot at the Empire-Magazine-Film-Quiz-at-the-Jameson-Apartment last night, and what an excellent film quiz it was too. Joining Saf and I as
Team Glass Eye 1.21 Quizawatts was a formidable formation of film fact fetishists, taking the form of Mr Lee Thomas (AKA @londonfilmgeek), Mr Antony K. Antoniou (AKA @_AKA_) and Mr Fraser Bensted (AKA Fraser Bensted), whose combined knowledge of all things cinematic was enough to propel us to a mighty 3rd place in the final figuring, scoring 68 out of an available 100.
Kudos must be given to the eventual winners, a team named ‘Cheval’, who romped home with a towering tally of 93. Soundly beaten as we were, we were nonetheless happy to place in what was a very well put-together and hard-fought frenzy of filmic factoids, against a backdrop of free-flowing whisky sours and the Twenties furnishings and finery of the Jameson Apartment Cinematic Speakeasy.
