A few I got wrong even though I knew the answer but thought it was a trick question.
Yes...Some interesting bits in there.

26/30. Only missed the movie questions, because I don’t watch many movies.

I obviously watch too many movies. The Mark Hamill question almost got me though. I've never actually seen the movie in question but I know of it.
The hardest question for me was the one about the European code name but a little bit of logic and some understanding of the Euro car scene helped.

I went by the memory of the Opal always being referred to as the poor mans Corvette.
