MTOS Questions on The Greatest - 29th of June 2014

This Sunday, the 29th of June 2014, I will be hosting #MTOS (Movie Talk on Sunday) once again. This post will contain the questions of the night released at ten minute intervals, starting from 8pm BST (British Summer Time). For those who are unfamiliar with the format of #MTOS, it's very simple to join in! Every Sunday at 8pm, an assigned host prepares a topic and releases 10 questions every 10 minutes, ending at 9:30pm. The conversations, debates and community feel of #MTOS is unrivalled. It helps many people find new films or even get an outlet for their love of a particular film, actor, director or whatever is linked to the question. It often is trending on Twitter because of the high volume of tweets from the film community that gather together for that hour and a half. It's always a pleasure hosting and taking part so please do join. This week's topic is The Greatest and the questions were written by my good friend Paul Furr (@JustCallMeFurry). Simply, his questions and topic were better than mine so please follow him as well. Follow me on Twitter @ashleyrhys where I will be posting all the questions. Also follow @MovieTOS, the official Twitter and the creators of the fantastic idea @askimrach and @raghavmodi who gather the fanatics together week after week to make sure they have somewhere to share their passion for film.

Important things: remember to tag your tweets with #MTOS so everyone can see them. Format your answers like so "A1. Your answer to the question here. #MTOS" so everyone knows the context of your tweet.
