Bona fide or Bogus: '80s movies

Fact? Or Fabrication?


How well do you recall these rad flicks from the eighties?

Some of the best movies of all time come from this decade. Some of the worst probably do as well. But while the merits of any movie can be debated, the influence of the '80s can not. If the late-'70s saw the advent of the blockbuster, then the '80s saw its refinement and perfection. 

Special effects were at the center of some of the biggest movies of the decade. We hope you've got your 3D glasses on with a bucket of popcorn in hand! We'll give you a statement, and you tell us whether it's a bona fide fact or a bogus falsehood. It's as simple as that! Good luck, and be sure to share your score and your thoughts in the comments section below.

9/10. I only missed the Back to the Future question because I was never a big fan of any of the movies.

I couldn’t see O.J. playing The Terminator, I’m sorry. I’m glad they stuck with Arnold.
