Welcome to Pointless: the 80 Movie edition. I'll be hosting this one (but go easy as it's the first one I've done!)

As always the point of Pointless is to guess the LEAST popular answer - with ZERO points up for grabs for anyone giving a unique correct answer.

Here are the 10 questions for you to answer by the end of MONDAY 16TH MAY with results coming soon after. PM all your answers to me, Richie.

ALL ANSWERS MUST REFER TO FILMS RELEASED IN THE UK BETWEEN 1980 AND 1989 AND MY DECISION IS FINAL!!!

Can you name...?
1. A historical figure Bill and Ted takes back to San Dimas for their book report.
2. Anybody who performed a cameo in Ray Parker Jr's video for Ghostbusters.
3. A movie from a George Lucas franchise.
4. A song from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
5. A non-animated Walt Disney motion picture.
6. An actor from the Breakfast Club.
7. Any member of the Cobra Kais in The first Karate Kid film (1984)
8. A reference made to 1980s culture by Marty McFly in Back to the Future which a 1950s character doesn't get.
9. Any film written by John Hughes.
10. Any film featuring at least two members of the Brat Pack in its cast list.**

* - This may be extended if people need more time, but move quickly as if we've enough players by then the opportunity window slams shut!
** - Wikipedia limits this Brat Pack to a core of: Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy

PLAYERS
1. HarryEzra
2. Regina
3. SamJudd
4. Chez Wombat
5. Jimmy Jam
6. Ultraviolence1989
7. Iz
8. Jonjo
9. Alex!
10. Josh
11. princess_lotti
12. Joe
13. J▲hq
14. Mack

Question 8 is the best one! And not just because I can pretty much recite that film by heart (<3) but also because it's a lot harder to find a list of possible answers. So more challenge.

Oops, so sorry everyone - I'm extending the deadline to the end of Monday 16th due to my inbox being full.

I'm quite glad question eight is requiring a bit more thought! Those that have come in so far are all really well observed.

Think I've gone too vague for Q8, had trouble finding potential answers / couldn't be bothered to read into too much detail.
