Picture your greatest enemy. Don’t have one because you’re an adult? Make one up then. Are you picturing them? Okay, good. Now think of the best way to beat them. No, that’s just murder. No, you’ll require a masters degree to do that. There’s only one way to truly defeat your foe: through movie trivia.

Beating your sworn foe at movie trivia is the best way to thwart them. Think of all the bar trivia nights you can ruin for them. Think of all the movies you’ll ruin. Think of the torment they’ll go through, knowing that there is only one ruler of all of pop culture and it is you!

They’ll go crazy. They’ll be self-destructive. Or maybe not. Who is to say one way or the other? In any case, enemy-foiling or not, movie trivia is still fun to know. Here are some behind-the-scene facts about some movies that should at least impress someone somewhere.
