I remember seeing the top 4 all in movie theaters. I think. Maybe not Die Hard, I would have only been 9 years old. I definitely saw Die Hard 2 in the theater. GhostBusters and Gremlins I can't remember if I saw at the theater or not. Again, though... I remember seeing Ghostbusters 2 and Gremlins 2 at the movie theater pretty clearly. I guess I'm only kind of old.

American English uses story/stories for the levels of a building, even if the rest of the English speaking world uses the spelling you indicated.

btw the Top Gun tag line is really dumb. I know it's a line from the movie, but what does it actually have to do with anything? It was just one throwaway line. Irrelevant to the plot.

What I find fascinating is that I missed The Little Mermaid the first time I took this quiz, but now every time I take it again I get it right away. Though it is also a weird tagline and I can see why so many other people missed it.

My favourite line from Highlander: "Ladies and gentlemen, I have something to say! It's better to burn out, than to fade away!" And The Blues Brothers: "Why we have both types of music here: Country and Western!"
