This Quiz Can Prove You’re A Genius -- Or You Need To Go To Movie “School.” Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sylvester Stallone. Mel Gibson.

Movies produced in the 1980s had some great actors, didn’t they? OK, we didn’t actually say that Schwarzenegger, Stallone, and Gibson were great actors, but there were great actors AND great movies in the 1980s!

Can you name the movies that won Oscars in the 1980s? I bet you know friends who say they can. Are you tired of them acting like they’re intellectually superior because they've memorized some facts? Now is your chance to beat them at their own game -- a movies trivia game.

Trivia Boss has found dozens of photos from 1980s movies. The game is whether you can match the movie with the photo. You can test yourself or compete against -- and beat -- the friends who think they know more about movies than the late Roger Ebert did. The game also gives you a chance to learn a lot about 1980s movies because the answers include information about the plot, stars, and other trivia.

Playing the game by yourself NOW before you go to a movie critic friend’s house also gives you the chance to become the Trivia Boss of movies so YOU can talk about 1980s movies as you and your friend are watching one. Thus, YOU will feel smarter than your friend.

Here’s some information that will help you -- the Best Picture Oscars in the 1980s were won by “Ordinary People” (1980), “Chariots of Fire” (1981), “Gandhi” (1982), “Terms of Endearment” (1983), “Amadeus” (1984), “Out of Africa” (1985), “Platoon” (1986), “The Last Emperor” (1987), “Rain Man” (1988), and “Driving Miss Daisy” (1989).
