Are you a '80s film aficionado? Take this quiz to find out.

The '80s were chock full of movies that drew audiences into theaters. Some movies were purely for fun, and some ignited fear into moviegoers. Regardless of the outcome, these '80s movies were good enough to be remembered for decades. So, whether you saw them when they first came out or caught them recently on Netflix or Hulu, you're likely to recognize these movie titles.

'80sblockbuster films included "The Terminator," starring Arnold Schwarzenegger; "Pretty in Pink," with Molly Ringwald; and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," starring Harrison Ford.
