I’m constantly in search of another great movie at the movie theaters that is based on fact.

Yep, “true stories” are my favorite.

Here’s why, plus some of the fact-based movies that we would recommend…

I realize the degree of truth always differs, as some movies are more based on truth than others.

In fact, some are merely fictionalized accounts of something that happened in real life.

That said, I’m still a sucker for anything that’s fact-based in some way. And the phrase “based on a true story” will get me to the movie theater every time.

Here are some true stories that are our personal favorites:

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I'm truly passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).

One thought on “True Stories Told In Hollywood Movies… The Ones We’ve Enjoyed The Most

  1. The Exorcism is the most iconic on the list. It’s a nightmare-inducing film that left me paranoid for days.
