Movie Math Quiz
This week's “Quiz Issue” movie quiz covers the subject of mathematics. You must figure out the movie-related numbers contained in the following sets of parentheses to come up with a total. Send that final sum on a postcard to: “Movie Math Quiz, Weekly Alibi, 2118 Central SE, PMB 151, Albuquerque, NM 87106.” One grand prize winner will be chosen at random from all the correct entries. Grand prize includes: Two tickets to the Guild Cinema, a $20 gift certificate to Louie's Rock-N-Reels and a Club Membership to Burning Paradise Video.
Solve the Following Equation: (The total number of Rocky films—not including Stallone's newly proposed sequel) x (the total number of Halloween films—not including Halloween: Retribution, which will be released sometime next year) ÷ (the total number of Friday the 13th films–not including Freddy vs. Jason, which is more of a spin-off) + (the no-longer-futuristic year in which Keir Dullea encountered psychedelic space aliens) + (the historic year in which John Belushi battled the Japanese) x (the cinematic year in which Robert De Niro joined forces with Bernardo Bertolucci to fight fascism) ÷ (Bo Derek's “perfect” movie designation) + (the number of weeks Mickey Rourke spent fooling around with Kim Basinger) – (the title of Federico Fellini's semi-autobiographical pic—which just happened to be the number of films he had directed up until that point).
