Question: I remember watching a movie about 4 teenagers who gain powers. Two of them are siblings and the sister becomes evil. I think the movie is from the late 1990s or the early 2000s. Other than that, I don't remember much. If you could tell me the possible name of the movie, I would appreciate it.
Question: I am looking for this comedy movie that I saw back in the 90s. I remember one scene only and it's about a guy who pretends to be paraplegic to get money from a very rich girl. He tells her that the only one who can cure him is a German (or Austrian) professor and that costs a lot if money. His other friend is trying to expose him so he pretend to be the German professor and started hitting his legs with stick or a sword, but the other guy keeps denying any feelings.Acmilan2007
Question: I have been trying for years to find the title or anything about a terrifying gorilla movie I saw in the early 50's. It was in color and the first scene was a detective in a destroyed apartment, kneels down by a fireplace and a dead young woman falls headfirst (has been pulled up). As the movie progresses, each young woman killed was given a bracelet with a little bell on it. As with King Kong, the gorilla won't kill the last girl and is killed by police. Can you help?
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie and all I have is a scene from it. I don't know the actors' names or even the time frame but the scene that I saw was a man in a white military looking uniform with blood on it stumbles out of the woods and there is a young mother on the side of a country road that is nursing her baby. The man then removes her baby and sucks her breasts until he is full and leaves her. The timeframe of the movie looked as if it were maybe WWII Russia or a foreign land. Can anyone help me?
Question: I remember watching a movie in the late 80's-early 90's that had a scene I can vaguely recall about a drawing of a house and a boy who gets trapped in it. Then the drawing gets thrown away and a garbage truck is about to compact it...and that's all I know. Do you know what movie this is? Thanks.
Question: I am looking for a film from possibly the late 80s, that somehow involves rich kids and horses and high school kids trying to sneak into college dorms. The film wraps up with a young couple who have been trying to be intimate with each other getting a fancy hotel room and trying to make the moment perfect, but consequently the girl gets food poisoning or the flu which botches their big plans. Right before the credits roll she finds him sulking on the shoreline outside the hotel and they sleep together there. Does this ring any bells?
Question: A few years back me and my dad were in a motel flipping through the channels. We came across a movie staring Bruce Willis. For whatever reason, we didn't watch much of it and went to something else, but it has always stuck out in my mind and I'd like to find it. The scene shown had Bruce Willis and Jack Black in it. To sight his gun, Bruce had Jack hold out a cigarette pack so he could shoot it. He shot off Jack Black's arm, and then killed him. What movie is this?Quantom X
Question: What is the name of the movie about a teenage girl who runs away, meets two men at a truckstop and then drives away with them in the truck? She starts a romance with one of the men who turns out to be a bit crazy, he later makes a plan with her to hold her hostage and ransom her parents as a way to get money, but then it turns serious and police are involved and she has to convince him to give himself up and let her go.
Question: I am looking for a movie that I remember seeing as a kid in the 90s. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of details but I specifically remember the main character who was a teen with brown hair zip lining from a construction-looking structure. I also want to say that there was an ape or gorilla of some type involved.
Question: How does Blu-ray conversion better the quality of old movies? The "Film Foundation" or whatever they are called is going back and restoring countless old movies like The Red Shoes to DVD and Blu-Ray. And they keep saying that the Blu-Ray makes it better than ever and clearer. How is that? The original film was the original format. So how can changing the format better something that was in a lesser form originally?Quantom X
Question: This is a movie that I got from Red Box a couple years ago or so. But for the life of me I can not remember what it was called. From what I remember, the basic jist of it was this swordsman wanted to become the greatest swordsman in the world and is Japanese. He challenges the current best and beats him in seconds right at the beginning of the movie. And it is his mission to beat that guy's full clan, which he does, killing them all except a small baby that he can't bring himself to kill. He takes it to raise, but this goes against his own clan's rules and so now he is hunted for dead. He leaves Japan and goes to America in the old west. He meats up with a dysfunctional circus group and mixes with them. This group has their own problems with local cowboys. And by the end of the movie, it becomes a three way battle between this guy with the Circus guys on his side, the cowboys, and Ninjas out to get the main guy. All fighting each other. This was the plot to the best of my memory. I can not remember the name and would love to watch it again. Does anybody know what movie this is?Quantom X
Question: I remember about five or more years ago I saw this movie about a girl or a guy who goes to Ireland and while there this older guy knocks their heads together. Later on he/she gets drunk and married and tries to get out of it, but falls in love. Oh and some guy lies too long in a tanning bed and gets badly burned.
Question: Please help. This movie was made around 1995-2001. Can't remember a lot of details. There was an old house and boy and a girl lived there. At the end of the movie we realize that they were possessed by spirits of two lovers, who died a long time ago. I also remember that the name of the boy is important, at the end of the movie he asks the protagonist to say his name aloud, and when he does, the boy dies.afisher1
Question: I'm trying to find the title of a movie I watched in the early 1980's about a poor military family whose daughter is killed by a train while playing on the train tracks, and money is donated to the family for the funeral. That's pretty much all I can remember, but would love to see it again.
Question: I don't know if it's a show or a movie but there's a scene where a boy and a girl are at the movies and the girl is really into the movie. She keeps reaching in the bag of popcorn which is on the boy's lap. The boy then proceeds to dump the popcorn so the girl can touch his penis. The bag has red and white vertical stripes.Lobos88
Question: When people point out a movie mistake, a lot of the time it is answered as a "character mistake" and not a "movie mistake?" What difference does it make? The scene was written for the movie and filmed. The mistake was not noticed during filming or when editing, the mistake was not noticed and they could have used another footage without the mistake. So how can the producer/director/editor leaving a mistake in post production considered a "character mistake" and not a movie mistake?" This question was answered earlier but the answer still makes no sense to me.lartaker1975
