From MST3K to the Big Silver Screen at AMC or any other Movie Theater, YDKJ Movies is a pretty good CD-ROM Cinema Triva/Digital Download Game. Don't forget the Popcorn, Candy & Snacks before you take your seat in your Local Movie Theaters, New Releases or Classic Movies.

This YDKJ is for the hard core movie goer. Wow, it is hard... And I watch/watched a lot of movies in my 40 years on this planet. A challenge for sure.

I would recommend only for HARD CORE MOVIE TRIVIA crazyness!

This game is really for hardcore movie buffs. I've watched probably close to 3000 movies in 3 decades but this particular YDKJ game is still quite hard. I wouldn't recommend it to a casual player, more for the super hardcore quiz / movie buffs.

On a note to the game itself, I'm pretty disappointed. There is no option to play full screen, no choice of screen resolution or similar. Looks crappy, it's a old game and to be expected. The commentator is funny for the most part but sometimes I'd rather just play than to listen to him.

Hate the fact that you always have to watch the intro which takes like a minute until you can actually play. There should be an option to skip the intro.

Verdict: Good value game for hardcore quiz (movie) buffs. Terrible integration on steam as in no achievements, no nothing, no option for screen resolution etc. The "Millionaire" games may be better suited for the casual player.

The title says it all, when you play you really do find out you don't know jack about movies. The game was obviously made quite a while ago without HD resolutions in mind and it's definitely not a game for kids with all the adult humor which was definitely a good thing in my situation. This has made a great addition to my party game line-up.

This is one of the best video game franchises in history, just because it actually requires you to know things. As in, really know them. You can't just be all "oh, I like movies" and expect to get by in this game. You have to activate your brain and fork out hard facts about really tough Hollywood jive.

Get this game if you want to both be intellectually stimulated and humiliated.

I really disliked this game for so many reasons I can't even begin to pick out the most prevalent.

Crass, random, irrelevant and obscure. I'm pretty sure I'd rather stab myself in the foot than play this again.

Dreadful and poorly executed

I've loved this game and the original one since it came out back in 1997, so it is awesome that Steam has it available. I could play my original disc version, but Win 7 doesn't like Windows 3.1/95 games. This have never been an easy game series to master. The questions are often time quite difficult, and crazy (but that's the fun of it all). It would have been nice it the host, Cookie, had continued through into the rest of the games, but he stepped down for another actor after this outting. Everything about the first three Jack games are great. The humor, the setting, the difficulty (which can ♥♥♥♥ you off at times since you come away saying to yourself, "Crap! I knew that! Why didn't I choose that answer!?" Even the credits are hilarious with the fake commercials. If you love quirky, fun and challenging trivia games, don't miss this or Volumes 1 (the Xtra Larged Edition) and 2, the Volume 4 - The Ride. Skip Volume 3. It got bad reviews back when it was first released.
