Reverted to my original answers by permission from Vandal due to the ambiguity of "bogus"...

"The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal" by Ben Mezrich became the movie - The Social Network
"The Executioners" by John D. MacDonald was filmed twice as - Cape Fear
"Flowers For Algernon" by Daniel Keyes became the movie - The Minority Report Charly
"The Hoods" by Harry Grey became the movie - Casino
"My Posse Don't Do Homework" by Louanne Johnson became the movie - Dangerous Minds
"Nothing Lasts Forever" by Roderick Thorp became the movie - The Minority Rerport Once Upon A Time In America
"Shoeless Joe" by W. P. Kinsella became the movie - Field of Dreams
"We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick became the movie - Total Recall
"Wiseguy" by Nicholas Pileggi became the movie - Goodfellas

Movies (two of these are bogus):



Bonus: Identify the two bogus titles (one point each) - Charly, Once Upon a Time in America (At first, I thought by bogus, you meant there were two distractor titles here. Now I think you mean made-up titles, and these are the only two titles that I can't say for sure weren't real movies. This made me redo my answers!) Die Hard and The MInority Report were my original two bogus answers before I read too much into the instructions. It apparently bothered me so much that I notice I put Minority Report into the game twice when changing my answers the first time...

BookWorm Bonus: A three-book series is called a trilogy. What is a two-book series called? (two points) - A two-book series. Duh!
