Looking through this @Mi-Amigo 

This is what I think so far

 

Kings/Queens ~ good

Bird ~ good

Movies no good

Food ~ good

Q5 ~ maybe this one

Rodents not my fav. but ok

Movies ~ I may know this but it's only maybe

Fruit  Good

I may get better than 1 if I read the question properly cool

Well make them good guesses @LukasB
I know some but others may be a stab in the dark
Which could make a good title for one of Cleoriff's stories!
