Question: There was a movie I saw on TV several months ago. It took place in Britain at a school with a student. In the movie, there is some kind of group or band who is popular among kids but for reasons unknown, anyone caught wearing a shirt of the group is arrested. The kid is asked by two fellow students to bring them shirts of the group. He does but when he hands them the shirts, they deny asking anything of him or that they even know him. When the boy turns around, he sees that he's face to face with a cop and his family has to bail him out of jail. What made this movie shocking was that the boy, his sister and his parents were werewolves.
Question: I saw an animated movie in the 90's (maybe an 80's movie, Secret of NIMH style) where I only really vaguely remember the beginning scene (I think). *At night, possibly raining* Two characters in a small room when a knock at the door comes, the older of the two knew it was threatening so hides the younger behind a cupboard door, then a struggle between the older and intruder ensues (Holding a knife I believe), the light swings about and young'n witnesses this. Any ideas?
Question: What's the movie? A jungle village, a single nurse/missionary meets a roving doctor touring remote tribes, They fall in love, after he is long gone she finds she is pregnant, aghast at the situation herself, but the tribe welcome her as family and together they raise her son. The doctor returns after 5-6 years, finds he has a son but can't let the stigma soil his family's name. He plans that they should marry, she being a widow, and he adopts her son so they can go back to civilization, out of the savage jungle with nobody knowing the details. She tells him off and stays.Cat Nell
Question: Just saw "outbreak" on TV, also saw it several years ago. There's a scene where the camera is passing through the various levels of a bio lab increasing in danger to the higher levels. I remember as the camera passed through each door it would list the various viruses (Ebola, anthrax, etc) that were worked on. When I saw the movie recently it did not list the viruses as it passes through each level. Did something change or am I thinking of another movie?
Question: Okay so I would like help finding out the name of this movie. I think it was made in the 80's maybe the early 90's. The only thing i remember is it was about a girl who is rich and I think she complains about her life, and so she switches lives with a poor person. I also only remember that there is a scene where a girl skinny dips.
Question: What is the name of this black and white movie? A cowboy has himself thrown in jail to break out another cowboy (his son?). The younger cowboy won't leave, so the older one breaks out and heads for Canada until the heat dies down. It's a lighthearted, funny movie until the end, when he crosses the border. He and his horse are hit by a car. The police have to shoot the dying horse and he's taken away in an ambulance. The film ends with a shot of his bloody cowboy hat in the middle of the street.Brian Katcher
Question: I only remember what I think is the beginning of this movie. A dad makes a bid at a silent auction on a house. They win the house but the dad dies before they find out. The house is a real mess and I remember his family standing outside looking at it ready to move in, realising how much work needs to be done on it.
Question: I wondered if any one can help me figure out a film I watched when I was a kid - it was about a truck driver who gets killed out on the road, and the man's dad drives around and searches for who it was. At the end of the film it turned out to be a woman - I don't know if it was a true story.Sarah Perrins
Question: I'm searching for the name of a movie I saw when I was about 11 yrs. Old (I'm 52 now), it was a black and white movie, maybe British. It involves a young boy (he sang in a Catholic boys choir) and he sees a man (I think he was in the military) and he kills someone in the boys apartment building. The boy witnesses the murder while he is hiding in the closet. I hope someone out there knows the movie.Lynn
Question: There was a comedy film I saw sometime in the 90's. The movie was about a guy who gets a traffic ticket and loses his license. He is ordered by a judge to go to traffic school to get his license back. He meets other people that are also taking traffic class and they end up getting into crazy adventures. The end of the film has all of them graduating but as the lead guy drives down the road a few minutes later, he sees his friends getting traffic tickets.
Question: Don't remember if this was a movie or TV show I saw, but I remember the husband is some kind of liberal lawyer scared of the fall of society. He has a hidden gun safe in his home office and his wife finds out about it, and forces him to choose between his family and his guns.Captain Defenestrator
Question: There was a movie about a teenage boy and his girlfriend going on some sort of trip. The boyfriend, while doing something, is bitten on his left arm by a snake. His girlfriend takes him to a hospital for treatment. While asleep in the hospital bed, a nurse notices his left arm is moving in an unnatural way. When she removes the bandages, she is shocked to see that his entire arm has turned into the head and body of a snake, which then kills the nurse. The end of the movie has the boy standing in a field in the rain begging his girlfriend to help him. Suddenly, his mouth opens extremely wide and a snake comes out. The girlfriend is left with no choice but to kill the snake with a shotgun blast to the head. This isn't Anaconda, but I know it was from sometime in the 80's.
Question: There was a movie that I believe had John Shea in it. In the movie, a woman becomes angry at a driver for almost running her down and throws something at the car. The driver responds by actually putting the car in reverse and knocking the woman to the ground. The woman lives but ends up with amnesia. While her husband helps her recover, she not only begins to remember the accident but starts to accuse him of sexually molesting their daughter.
