I've set a Sci Fi quiz before, so I've checked back and am pretty sure there are no repeats in this one. Answers relate to Sci Fi movies (none too old and are in colour and have sound). Not too hard I think but as usual two answers per person per day until I see fit to say otherwise. Quiz setters decision is final so there'll be no stewards enquiries. Any points awarded are for kudos only and not exchangeable for Green Shield stamps or shares in Newcastle United Football Club...

1 Between two lagers... Interstellar

2 You must be specific... Gravity

3 Keeping watch over a chocolate bar... Guardians Of The Galaxy

4 To make it work, you might need a cleaner. Contact

5 Made man from clay... Prometheus

6 Not funeral directors but... Men In Black

7 When the pilot blacks out.... The Flight Of The Navigator

8 Dive deep!!.. The Abyss

9 Sounds like a short list for a 60's pop group... 12 Monkeys

10 Gets lacerated feet... Blade Runner

11 Not in the works.... Ex Machina

12 Potato mountain... Close Encounters Of The 3rd KInd

13 To begin... Inception

14 Ones and zero's... The Matrix

15 No man is one either... This Island Earth

16 Gabby's out for a jog... Logan's Run

17 Sting in a buggy... Dune

18 I should remember this... Total Recall

19 Like a low blow from a heavyweight... Deep Impact

20 Means of identifying cumulonimbus... Cloud Atlas

Needless to say they're both wrong but in one case very close...I think you may have given the answer away there. The Bo Derek movie sounds intriguing....is it from your secret video stash??

Only got the first on tape. It was peddled as Sci-Fi but I think I should dust off the player to verify it is a worthy sequel.
