All About the 80's

Last weekend we had a combo party: Housewarming (yes, we've lived here 6 months)/my birthday/ethnic food/80's. Oh, the food was soooo yummy! And the 80's rocked! The tunes were great (just ask Elijah). We dressed up (J and I raided VV the night before). After we got ready, Jonathan looked at me and said: "Wow, it's like high school"...fair enough, I admit to being in high school from '88-'93. And, of course what would be a party at my house without party games and prizes (think 80's prizes: Nerds, Jelly bracelets etc.) The games included solving Rubix Cubes, moonwalking, breakdancing and trivia. How many of the top movies of the 80's can you name by year? (BTW, 1984 was a great year for movies - think The Karate Kid, Ghostbusters and Footloose). For those interested here's my 4 part quiz (and no, I didn't make up the questions myself, I searched 80's trivia sites for the questions, but it was fun...and I felt smart). How many can you answer without looking up the answers? Jeff, I'm thinking of you specifically!

All the music lines were too easy - the TV came as well, not so much the movie stuff, and --- Isn't - name 5 members of NKOTB music trivia as well ---

Well, if I hadn't done the music part as lyrics only the NKOTB probably would have been there instead of misc. Aren't you being just a tad picky Jeff?
