• Hi! And welcome to my Definitive Movie Trivia Bad-ass Test. This test is all over the place, and I tried not to focus on any particular genre or period. But this test will deal mostly with older movies, because let's face it, most current movies suck. It's 50 questions, but if you're a true bad-ass, you'll whiz right through it! A couple of these answers should come very easily, just because of the overexposure of those movies on television. But be warned -- these questions get pretty nerdy.
