Movies, a wise man once said, are really good. How good, you ask? Good enough to obsess over. Good enough to warrant a trivia test — a test that will determine, once and for all, your celluloid savvy. Good enough, in other words, to merit a big ol’ geek-out. Speaking of geeking: To honor the very last Star Wars prequel (and the closing of the now-depleted Jar Jar Binks Joke Mine), EW has included an all-Star Wars quiz, which will separate the truly a-droid from those with Fett of clay. Also note our shamelessly self-referential EW quizzes: It is our 15th anniversary, after all. And not one of you sent flowers. Actually, we’d prefer to go to a movie.
