          Some movies are based on true events somewhat faithfully and others aren't evn close to telling the real story. Here are some entertaining "based-on" movies, although some aren't too true to life:

          - Fear and loathing in las vegas
          - From Hell
          - Apollo 13
          - The Untouchables
          - The basketball diaries
          - Spartacus

            no movie is all true...unless maybe its a documentary..but even those can be edited to fit a viewpoint.

              Goodfellas is based on a true story, so is Casino. Both directed by Martin Scorsese.

                  I think Goodfellas is more of a true story than Casino.
