Roadmap

  • This game is very simple as all you have to do is play and have fun!!! You will get majority of the achievements just by playing either with friends or by yourself.
  • For the LIVE achievements, either do them yourself and dominate the competition or boost with a friend.
  • Glitched Achievements: For odd reasons, some of the answer "x" Amount of Questions related to certain genres won’t unlock. This happened with me and the Sci-Fi achievement. You can even look at my gamercard and see how late I unlocked it. You will know when this happens to you as it will never unlock even when you get Sci-Fi Questions. Unfortunately, you must delete your save and start over. Once I did this I unlocked the Sci-Fi achievement after 3 long games.
  • For DLC Pop Quiz achievements, Pop quiz will always pop up before the end of Round 2 of a short/long game. If you only need the Pop Quiz achievements, after the end of Round 2 (it saves after every round) you can press start and quit and then start a new game. The achievement progress will be saved so don’t worry if it is taking quite some time.
  • Last but not least, if you are having trouble, questions will repeat themselves (a lot at times!), so take your time and you will master this game. Have Fun!

See "Video Store Clerk".
Video Store Clerk30
Win 15 games in any mode. 
Simply win 15 games of any mode. You can get this achievement playing short or long games by yourself, or you can play games online and get this at the same time as the All on the Line achievement.
Short Film10
Play a Short Game. 
Play a short game either by yourself, with friends, or online. Make sure you finish though.
Background Artist10

See "Supporting Role".
Bit Part25
Score 40,000 points in a Short Game. 
See "Supporting Role".
Supporting Role35
Score 60,000 points in a Short Game. 
If you can’t manage this the first time around, its alright. Eventually, the answers will repeat and you can answer them immediately. Also, if you have the DLC, the new Pop Quiz puzzle block can give you a maximum 20,000 points which will definitely make this achievement much easier.
Epic Feature20
Play a Long Game 
Play a long game either by yourself, with friends, or online. Make sure you finish though.
Lead Role20
Score 45,000 points in a Long Game. 
See "Award-Winning Performance".
Star30
Score 60,000 points in a Long Game. 
See "Award-Winning Performance".
Award-Winning Performance40
Score 85,000 points in a Long Game. 
If you can’t manage this the first time around, it’s okay. Eventually, the answers will repeat and you can answer them immediately. There are also five puzzle blocks per round, so you will have plenty of questions to answer. Also, if you have the DLC, the new Pop Quiz puzzle block can give you a maximum 20,000 points which will definitely make this achievement much easier.
Director20
Get 10 questions correct in a row in any game mode. 
See "Producer".
Producer40
Get 15 questions correct in a row in any game mode. 
Easier than it sounds. If you do not know an answer to a question, simply don’t buzz in or answer. Make sure you get the ones you are definitely sure about and skip the ones you are unsure about. Again, if you are having trouble with this, eventually questions will repeat and by the end you will be a movie buff.
It's a LIVE10
Play an online game. (10) 
See “All on the Line”.
LIVE and Kicking15
Win an online game. (3) 
See “All on the Line”.
All on the Line20
Win 10 online games. (56) 
Either boost this with or friend or become a movie buff by playing this game constantly. If your opponent quits, just make sure you finish the game, as you will still get credit for a LIVE win.
Home Alone40
Score 300,000 + points in a Solo Game. (5) 
To start a Solo Game just go under "Custom Games" and select "Solo Play". Solo Play lasts about as long as a long game, but its not divided into rounds and you only get the "Movie Clip" game once instead of four times. Every time you get a question correct, your multiplier will go up, but if you get anything wrong it will reset back to 1X. It goes up to 10X, giving you the chance to earn up to 20,000 per question asked. Also, if you have the DLC, there is only a very limited amount of DLC questions, so if you play a DLC only Solo game, the questions will repeat often thus keeping your multiplier high at all times.
Cameo Appearance30
Answer one question correctly from every puzzle type. 
This will take a few games but eventually you will play every puzzle block. This is the list of all puzzle blocks that game with the game (no DLC).

Now Playing
Pictogram
Movie Clip
Sequentials
Credit Roll
Genre X
Celebrity Ties
Who Am I?
Anagram
Sound Clip
Songs and Slogans
Props
Invisibles
Distorted Reality
Which Is Which
Visual Puzzler
Quotables
Sketches
Pixel Flix
Child's Play
Mise-en-Scene20
Successfully answer every Now Playing or Pictogram question in one puzzle block. 
Now Playing is the puzzle block that wants you to guess the movie poster. Eventually, the poster will reveal the name of the movie, thus making this much easier.
Reviewing the Dailies20
Successfully answer every Movie Clip question in one puzzle block. 
There are tons of movie clips in the game, so you will likely get this without even trying. If you are having trouble and have a computer handy, use imdb.com while the clip is rolling and if you know the movie, the majority of the answers will be on that particular movie page.
Flash Forward20
Successfully answer every Sequentials or Credit Roll question in one puzzle block. 
If you are struggling with this achievement, I suggest letting the whole credit roll clip to play for "Credit Roll" and for "Sequentials" let 3 of the 4 dates come up.
Multiple Exposure20
Successfully answer every Genre X question in one puzzle block. 
Most of the questions asked in Genre X are usually recent films, if you are having trouble just keep playing and eventually the questions will repeat.
Method Acting20
Successfully answer every Who Am I or Celebrity Ties question in one puzzle block. 
If you are struggling with this achievement I suggest letting every hint pop up for "Who Am I" before answering.
Working Title20
Successfully answer every Anagram question in one puzzle block. 
Anagrams are annoying, but to make this easier, you need to use process of elimination. Eliminate any possible choices by noticing if a letter doesn’t appear in or as often as the anagram. Just take your time and you will eventually master it.
Dialect Coach20
Successfully answer every Sound Clip or Songs & Slogans question in one puzzle block. 
Songs and Slogans is pretty straight forward as the questions give you plenty of hints to the possible answer. They use taglines, quotes, and songs that we all know and love.
Soft Focus20
Successfully answer every Distorted Reality question in one puzzle block. 
If you are struggling with this achievement, I suggest waiting till there is only a few seconds remaining so the image can fully appear.
Finding the Macguffin20
Successfully answer every Invisibles or Props question in one puzzle block. 
Props is pretty simple as there are not that many questions related to the Props puzzle block, so the questions will often repeat.
Viewfinder Master20
Successfully answer every Which Is Which or Visual Puzzler question in one puzzle block. 
Which is Which is your best bet here as there are only two possible answers. Again, there are not many questions for this puzzle block, so the questions will appear repeatedly.
Running Lines20
Successfully answer every Quotables or Crosswords question in one puzzle block. 
If you are struggling with this achievement, I suggest waiting till the last few seconds on "Crosswords" so the extra words are filled in.
Drawing Up Storyboards20
Successfully answer every Sketches, Pixel Flix, or Child's Play question in one puzzle block. 
Pixel Flix is fairly simple as most of the questions are from recent films. If you are having trouble, again, Pixel Flix questions are very limited so they will repeat more than others.
Sneak Preview20
Answer 30 questions with the maximum amount of points. 
If you are having trouble with this, simply buzz in and/or answer A for every question you see. Eventually you will get more than 30 correct by doing this method.
A Spine-Tingling Splatter-Fest15
Successfully answer 25 questions about Horror movies. 
Fairly good amount of Horror questions to get right.
Movie Clips with Horror: Child’s Play, Tremors, Rosemary’s Baby, etc.
A Rip-Roaring Good Time15
Successfully answer 50 questions about Comedy movies. 
There are a ton of Comedy movie related questions in the game.
Movie Clips with Comedies: Monty Python films, Top Secret, Airplane!, Something About Mary, Shallow Hal, The Jerk, etc.
A Gritty Epic of Redemption15
Successfully answer 15 questions about Western movies. (2) 
Not too many Western questions in the game, but be on the look out for questions related to films such as; Shane, Three Amigos, 3:10 to Yuma, and a Genre X puzzle block about Westerns.
A Visually Stunning Mind-Bender15
Successfully answer 25 questions about Sci-Fi movies. 
Fair amount of Sci-Fi questions to answer.
Movie Clips w. Sci-Fi films: Aliens, Firefly, ET, and a Genre X puzzle block about Sci-Fi’s.
An Edge-of-Your-Seat Thrill Ride15

Girls' Night Out15
Successfully answer 15 questions about Chick Flick movies. (2) 
You will easily get this before getting the romance movie achievement.
Leave Fan Boys Drooling for More15

Not too sure what category “Nerd” films fall in but I would assume that anything Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, or Comic Book related is classified as a “Nerd” film.

DLC: Award Winners
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 8 Points: 250
 
Streaming Video25
Play a DLC-only game. 
Go to Custom games, and simple choose Short or Long, but select DLC Only. As long as you finish the game, you will receive the achievement after the last round.
For Your Consideration30
Successfully answer 150 DLC questions. 
Play a custom game with DLC only. DLC questions repeat constantly so this will be easy as pie to achieve when going for the other DLC achievements.
Motion Blur40
Successfully answer every Pop Quiz question in one puzzle block. (1) 
This will take a few tries. Pop Quiz pops up right before the end of Round 2. They include 10 True/False questions either related to Actors, Actresses, Directors or Best Picture winning films. Using the list of Best Pictures below, you will eventually get this with ease.
And the Winner Is...30
Successfully answer 60 Pop Quiz questions about Oscar Best Picture winning movies. (2) 
This one is very time consuming, as the Best Picture block does not pop up as often but there are about 7 pop quiz blocks related to Best Pictures. So you will get across them eventually and repeatedly. You must get the True/False questions correct; it doesn’t matter if its true despite the achievement description stresses “Best Picture winning movies.” Just be patient and it will come.

Also here is a list of all Oscar winning movies:
http://www.tif.ro/movies/oscar/lista.htm
And the Nominees Are...30
Successfully answer 40 Pop Quiz questions about Oscar winning actors and directors. (1) 
Same as above but with Actors and Directors. Remember, there are some Pop Quiz question blocks related to non-Oscar winners. Some people to look for are:
Actors: Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, etc.
Directors: Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Clint Eastwood, etc.
Lifetime Achievement Award35
Score 80,000 points in a Short or Long Game with only DLC content. 
Go to Play, Custom game, DLC only (yes), and set the length to long. DLC questions repeat more than the questions that came with the game do. If you are having trouble, you will eventually remember.
Formidable Opponent35
Score 330,000 points in a Solo Game with a mix of standard and DLC content. (7) 
More tough than the achievement that came with the game. You will get help though from the Pop Quiz block if you have a 10x multiplier before the round begins. You can get a max possible 200,000 from Pop Quiz alone. So you could obviously get this within reach. To help you, the DLC questions repeat often as there are only about 200 DLC questions.
Online Quiz25
Win one round of Pop Quiz while playing online. (14) 
All you have to do is get more corrections right than anyone else you’re playing during a LIVE game. The people you are playing must have the DLC; you can tell if they do as there is a check mark next to Award Winners in the lobby before you start the game. If you are having trouble, use the achievement trading thread to find a friend that has the DLC.
