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!

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 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
