Question: I'm searching for a movie that I can't remember the title of. I'd say it was released late 90s, early 2000s. I can't remember much about it but I remember a boy befriending another boy who was bigger, may have had something wrong with him. I remember the bigger boy giving the smaller one a ride on his shoulders and the small boy gets hurt. The small boy's mother is a Darryl Hall-type character. I also remember the bigger boy gets upset and he hurts his friend, even though it was an accident.
Question: What is the name of recent film or TV series pilot with woman who can read minds and by the end of the film reluctantly teams up with a policeman. She saves his life from being shot in a building, which was a trap to kill him, but she felt that. Up to that point she had tried to hide that she can read minds, even though, I seem to remember, she had caught some thoughts of that policeman earlier.
Question: I can't remember the name of a movie I saw years ago. I thought it was called "Captured", but it's not. In the movie a female celebrity is kidnapped - I can't remember if she is a movie star or a model. She goes to a night club with her dog and gets drugged by someone there and then kidnapped. When she wakes up she thinks she's at home, but she not. She's in a room that was set up to look like her place. She gets tortured by if I remember right having blood forced down her throat. At some point she finds that there's another room beside hers separated by glass with dirt on it. There ends up being a guy in that other room. They both scrape the dirt off and try to communicate. Later she figures out that the guy in the room next to her is the one that kidnapped her. And she figures out a way to get out of that room and ends up killing that guy and his brother that helped him take her. At the end of the movie it shows that she had became a vigilante of sorts and shows she had drugged a guy that had done something bad and she had put him in a full body cast, then took a sledge hammer and bashed his head. Can anyone help me remember the name of this movie?Angel Christian
Question: I'm desperate for help remembering this film I watched in my childhood. I'm pretty sure its from the 80s or 90s, probably rated U or 12 and it was an American film. It was about a young girl who was in a car accident with her dad who was driving, it was winter. She enters an imaginary, fantasy world which is the basis of the film. I remember she was wearing a pinky/red coat if that help! Sorry it's so vague! Thank you in advance for your help.Jinesc
Question: I'm looking for a movie that I saw years ago but can't remember the name. A couple hires a babysitter who tells the two children (a boy and girl) about a secret island. I think she may have had an affair with the husband. In the end of the movie she tries to kidnap the children on a raft telling them she is taking them to the island, she throws one of them out of the raft. In one of the end scenes the mother of the children slaps the babysitter on the beach.
Question: I can not remember this movie - the plot was that someone was trying to capture a human soul. A boy dying of cancer was in the movie and so was a girl; it was on the former Sci-Fi channel some time between 1983 and 2000. One of the lines was that when the light pluses she speaks. I have no idea of the title or who was in it.
Question: I am trying to find the name of a particular movie and am not sure how old it is. The plot is this: a husband finds that his wife is sleeping with his best friend. In reaction he begins counting cards in blackjack and building an alternate identity. Ultimately he ends up faking his own death off a bridge and running off with a woman and 1 million dollars. At the airport he switches briefcases with a man in front of him that ends up getting arrested. He then finds millions of dollars in the man's briefcase that he stole.
Question: I am looking for a movie title that I used to watch as a little girl. I'm thinking it is from the late 80's or early 90's. All I can remember is there is a little girl in a school uniform with short brown hair. She is with a couple men who do bad things. I don't remember if she is the daughter of one of them. At the end one of the men gets shot and she is crying over him. Sorry, that's all I can remember.Aharkins
Question: There was a movie I watched a couple of years ago on LMN and it involved a woman who was house sitting, She had tried on the owner's clothing and wore it when answering the front door to a guy who planned on stealing something in the house. I also remember a scene where the guy has the girl tied by the wrists hanging from the shower thing in the greenhouse, and then they end up making out with each other.
Question: I saw an old movie or TV show when I was a kid, possibly from 60s or 70s but don't know the name. What I do remember is someone changing pictures on a wall that was on a staircase for the purpose of driving a woman insane. I remember she would continue to see different pictures on the wall and think she was losing her mind. Does anyone know the name of this show or movie?
Question: I'm looking for the title of a movie. I watched it as a kid, on TV, sometime in the 90's. It was based on a mom and her two daughters. The youngest daughter was really into swimming. She walked around with a swimming cap on. I want to say the mom drank a lot, but I don't remember that for sure. I believe the mom went out with a guy that her oldest daughter had a crush on. The older daughter leaves one night with her younger sister, to meet a guy. Possibly the same guy. The younger daughter almost drowns in the river while her sister is up in a tower with the guy. I don't believe the little girl dies. That's about all I can remember. Kind of vague, but I hope someone can help! Thanks!Spk0930
Question: I am looking for the name of a movie about a girl who lives in a small town, and when a local girl is killed she starts to obsess about the murder and eventually kidnaps a boy who may or may not be the killer. I saw a review of it 3 years back - it was starring an up and coming young actress. I thought it was Winter's Bone, but it's not.
Question: Trying to remember a certain Christmas movie. A woman stops celebrating Christmas because when she was a child, she was going to mail a letter to Santa and I can't remember if she did or not. As an adult she loses her faith in the holiday and suddenly, all of the lights in her neighborhood go out. It's not until, with the help of an angel, that she mails the letter renewing her faith in Christmas and the lights come back.
Question: I forgot the name of this one movie that I saw back in 2007 on cable television (I believe it aired on AZNtv) the film is set in India and centers around a woman whose family owns a restaurant from their home. Her (rather mixed) family arranges for her to marry a man of good economic standing, but through the length of the film, she begins to fall in love with a woman.
Question: I'm trying to find a film I saw years ago, maybe late 90's early 2000's but can't be sure. It's a British film of a brother and sister who live with their father in the countryside, The father has become/is angry and abusive. The brother has developed feelings for his sister and attacks and kills the father when he tries to rape the sister. The only scene I remember is at the end, when the brother and sister are hiding and begin to kiss. I remember it pulling no punches.
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie. I believe it was in the 80s, and I could swear Meredith Baxter was in it. It was about a woman who was married but fell in love with another man (I believe he was her cousin?) they both went crazy. She had children from her husband and they were in a delusional state. There is a part in the movie where they blow themselves up in the car/jeep they are in (entire family).Kristen
Question: Looking for a movie I watched on HBO about ten years ago, can't find it anywhere. It's about a kid (10-13 years old?) who works in a restaurant and he steals all the money one night. He gets caught and gets to keep the all the things he spent the money on, but at the end of the movie he goes to jail. I want to say that he buys a record collection with the stolen money (or he might have stolen the record collection), which he hides under the porch, but I could be mixing that up with another movie. At one point in the movie, a kid who bullies him comes into the restaurant while he is working, so he pees into his dinner. After watching him eat it, he vomits. Another scene I can specifically remember, he orders a lot of food with the stolen money, and half way through the meal he stops and vomits and can't eat anymore.
