It’s a place for us to share each month’s film quiz rounds (soundtracks, trailers, picture rounds) so that those of you outside London can play at home, as well as our specially created video montages (or 'supercuts' as the kids are calling them these days). We also hope that the Bigger Blog will become an online repository of all the interesting (and otherwise useless) movie trivia we’ve compiled during more than ten years of writing questions to test London’s most formidable film nerds (some of this has previously been published online at our old blog the Movie Miscellany, and we'll be gradually moving this information across, updating and expanding these old posts where possible).
Once all our May quiz nights are done, at the end of this month, we'll upload our soundtracks and trailer video rounds, and the picture round, so you can have a go yourself.
Hope to see you around!
Simon & Lee-Jay
