These questions will be non-photo related...  It's as simple as this:

"Between the wind
and the clouds,
between a silent boy
and a beautiful girl,
lies an amazing secret
." 




1 - Name the movie

2 - Name the lead actor and actress names (character names as well)

3 - Who played the female lead's little brother?

4 - What other 80's movie did he star in, and spent the entire time he was on the screen in bed?

Enjoy!

Only some limited responses to the two questions from yesterday...  I may need to call the cast of ER in here to shock us back to life!  Spread the word - 80's Trivia is back!  So here is a two for one.  As always, comments are screened until the answer is revealed:

 

First photo questions!

  Who is this handsome fellow in the movie, and in real life?  (Please list name of the actor and the role as it was credited in the film)

  He is associated with a band, reknowned for one song only that has never been released by any label.  What is the title of the song, and the name of the band?  (Bonus points if you know the lyrics of the song)

  This gentleman has gone on to work with a pretty famous troop of characters, beginning in the late 80's.  By what name are they commenly refered to?




Look at that old school Mac...  Makes me wonder if Steve Jobs knew about product placement or not back in the day...  

  What substance/product we see created by the  molecular matrix displayed on the screen above?

  What is the name of the company that will benefit from this information?

Lastly, to tie these two photos together...

  What is the name of the film these two photos have in common?

  Who directed it?

  What year was it released?

Bonus Question 
 
  As the film was originally pitched, what rising star was supposed to be a member fo the cast (and thankfully was passed over)?

I have yet another bit'o trivia to share!  Once again, comments are screened and shall be revealed once the answers are confirmed/shared.  Happy answer hunting!

 














This is a piece of a movie poster (believe it or not).  Looks like the tattoo of an angry Microsoft Employee if you ask me.  Anyway, here are some questions for you faithful 80's Movie Buffs!

What is the title of the movie represented by this photo?

What year was it released?

What are the names of the primary three characters (the third name revealed toward the end of the movie)?

What is the mistaken name for the primary character used by the third referred to in the question above?

Who was the voice of our mysterious third character mentioned in the above two questions?

Two of our characters have occupations - what are those occupations?

Feel free to creat and share your own trivia questions for the community - I like to play as well (as if you didn't already know that).

Take a gander at the photo below and answer the questions that follow...  Now me personally, I think there are some clues in the questions but that is because my head is a repository of useless information (with the exception of 80's trivia of course).  Answer in comments, which are screened so that nobody gets the answer for free.  I will uncscreen the comments after the answer is revealed.  Enjoy!

 
























Such a lovely little artifact we have pictured here...  Now for some questions!

What 80's movie did this artifact appear in?

What is inside of it?  (Be specific, name it properly, and spell it right)

Who brought this artifact to the meeting shown in the film?

Where did the meeting take place (name the place)?

What is the origin of the name of the place?

What marriage resulted between someone in the cast, and someone in production?  (Name both parties)

Whattayathink - Was the question hard enough for you? (You don't actually have to answer this one)

Hey all you 80's Fans!  Sorry we have been a little short on games here in the community.  Previous volunteers to run games fell through, and life has kind of taken up much of my time since the family expanded a bit.  I still love the 80's, and i still love trivia, and I know all of you do as well.

So with that said, it is time for a change.  I am opening up the doors to anyone who has trivia questions.  Want to show that you are the master of arcane and insane trivia?  Want to make a name for yourself as the 80's Movie or Music Guru?  Post your questions, challenge your friends and community members , bragging rights go to the first person that answers any questions submitted!

Let's all share with all of us.  Let's get the some blood pumping in here and ask some questions!  IF you have just been a lurker, join the community and have fun.  Posting access is there for all to enjoy who are members of the community.

In the immortal words of Tom Cruise in Cocktail, "Bars Open!"

Hi all! Looks like I'm back for another round or so! In case you were wondering, I believe the answers to McBarnes' last question were: MIG 31 Firefox, undetectable to radar and can fire weapons with thought impulses, Clint Eastwood, and Firefox (the movie).

This game will consist of 10 rounds with 10 points possible. There may be a variance in the amount of questions asked per round, but the points will always add up to 10.
