Name a movie director who, according to IMDB, has used the pseudonym Alan Smithee for one or more motion pictures.

Harry Handhauser rose to cinematic success as a special visual effects creator. Name one film for which his effects are credited.

Both Qs have lots and lots of right answers, so if you don't know, you still have a good chance of guessing correctly.
Yeah, right.

Martin Scorsese, which I probably didn't even SPELL right...

Halloween, because it starts with an H like Harry and Handhauser...
I STINK!!!! Woo Hooo!!!
Excellent! That's good!

I believe I have five definite gaps in my vast supply of knowledge and I also believe you're going to manage to coincidentally hit all five of them tonight.

Hey Sprotsie, I bought the Plant/Krause cd today. Didn't listen to the whole thing, just a couple of cuts, but I think I'm gonna like it lots. Bought the Eagles, too. Woulda been terrific as a single disc..too much filler. Still pretty good..Eagles fans shouldn't have too many complaints..they just needed to trim the fat a bit.
Thanks for the tip! I'm gonna buy it tomorrow -- I have a 30% off coupon. Yeah, yeah, I'm cheap. I think I'll pass on the Eagles -- except for Lyin Eyes and Winslow AZ I can't really say I'm an Eagles fan.

The Plant/Krause cd is VERY rootsy..No hard rock, no bluegrass. It's quite "moody". A lot of it dark and mysterious sounding, from the samples I've heard. Only a few uptempo numbers.

Oh. My. Goodness.

AJ, because he does know these things, has pointed out that the name I typed had little in common with the name of the special effects creator.

Sheesh. This question will not count in the scoring, not that it will affect the scores a whole lot.

Please accept my apologies, guilt, stupidity, and insufficient thought processes. SOX should have been meister.

I wouldn't say it had little in common because I knew who you meant. I even looked him up to make sure that you weren't going for some variation that he had used.
No matter where you go, there you are.
