About This Quiz
Hollywood pulled in about $12 billion in ticket sales in 2018, so it's safe to say the world is in love with movies. And it's worth remembering that the $12 billion only reflects box office takes. Movies that go directly to streaming, like Netflix originals and films that never hit theaters, don't factor in. That means thousands of movies are being made every year. No one could watch all of them, but sometimes movies come out that you just don't want to miss. They're hyped beyond belief, and critics love them, your friends love them, the internet loves them, and you need to be there.
If you let us know a bit about the movies you love — your go-to films for whatever mood you might be feeling — we can probably start to paint a pretty detailed picture of who you are. The things that make you laugh, that make you scared, that get your adrenaline pumping or make your eyes get a little bit misty all tell a story about who you are. Most importantly, if we find out what your favorite movies are, we're pretty sure we can guess just how old you are. Take the quiz and see for yourself!
