I remember a TV movie from the 1980s (perhaps early 1990s) whereby a sister and brother (I think) come across a medallion. They somehow realize that the medallion belongs to a king (everybody seems to be puppets, like the Muppets but NOT the Muppets, except for the sister and brother). The movie involves them trying to bring the medallion to its rightful owner, however, there are bad guys who want the medallion themselves. I cannot remember much else besides the fact that the sister and brother (who fought a lot at the beginning of the movie), become closer and better siblings by working together in returning the medallion to its rightful owner.
I cannot remember much of this movie but I loved it as a kid. It might have been a 90s movie. I don't think it had any popular actors in it either. It's about a young girl who was kept in a shed by her dad for most of her life. I believe she was mute because of it. Some kids found the girl and sneaked her out with them a few times. The girl and her mother were abused. That is all I know. I hope someone can help. This has been bugging me for months. :) Thank you.
I'm looking for this movie, and I can't remember much but it's been nagging at me for ages. I remember this boy, and he's in a hamster ball of sorts, I think he's sick or something. He ran away, was happy, and he got chased by an animal or something - I really can't remember anything else. (02:06:15)efaridah
I am searching for a movie I saw a long time ago. I do not remember much about it other than there was a young girl and a man and I remember them dancing on top of a truck to Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark. I also remember a scene where this man kills a dog and wraps it in a flag (I think) and the younger girl sees it and runs away in a field.
Movie help: I cannot remember the title or any actors. All I remember is a teenage girl runs away from home. A man picks her up hitchhiking, they talk for a while, I think he is about to drive her home, then a truck hits them in an accident and she is killed. The man now knows where she lives and he goes to see her mom. That's all I can remember, if anyone knows what it is called please help me.alfinchison
I'm looking for the title of a heist movie. I don't have a specific time frame of when it was made, but I do remember that I watched it somewhere between 2001 and 2005 on DVD. It had a (subtle) sex scene in it which took place in a sauna, and I think it ended with the main character putting someone on a weight bomb in a white van, and after that he got out via a secret hatch in the bottom, parked over a sewer.Friso94
I watched this movie a long time ago about these young kids and they all went out on a boat on the lake for this boy's birthday. The boy couldn't swim and got knocked off the boat and he drowned and died. The teens took the body and went to bury it - they all swore they wouldn't tell, but then they got guilty and told the cops.
I am looking for a movie that played on the scifi channel between 2002-2004 aired very late at night. I caught the last 15 minutes which showed two men fighting in an old west looking indian fort. The men stabbed and beat each other repeatedly and one had a small sickle stuck in him during the fighting. The film ended when the 2 men wrestled each other and rolled into a bear trap which killed them both, then some people rode to the fort, opened the room the men were in, looked at them, and then closed the door. The credits rolled then. Last thing that might help, no one said a word during the entire last 15 minutes as I remember.
I am looking for a movie (probably from the 80s) where a boy makes friends with a girl he believes is a witch. The girl has long brown hair and may live with her grandmother. The boy is stung by stinging nettles in the film and at the beginning has a plate of food sneaked up to him in his room. I am pretty sure I saw this on the Disney Channel growing up.
This is a movie I saw in the 90's - I can't remember its name but it was about a little girl who can't talk and uses sign language. I remember a scene where she was sitting in the garden with her nanny or teacher, I think learning the word love in sign language, and wrote it on her hand.Talhaqari
I saw a short animated film back in the 80's shown at an animation film festival. About 2-3 minutes long. Basically simple pen & ink with almost no color. A drawing of a muscular man, chained to a concrete slab, who is dragging it through a desert for some unknown reason (to reach a destination to be freed of it?) and all the while he is tormented by a creature (ghost? goblin? spirit?) riding on that slab who tries to give him words of encouragement, but is way too happy to do the man any good. The end of the film shows that the man dragging the slab is, in fact, going around in a perpetual figure-8. Any idea what this short animated film is called and where I can see it again? YouTube?CCARNI
I am trying to recall a movie with the following synopsis. It is a family (mother/father) with two daughters. One (I believe the younger) is playing outside and gets hit/killed by a car, while chasing her ball into the street. The family's grief is strong and they try to reach out to her in the "spirit world" which triggers the dark side as well. The only other detail that I can recall is that at the end of the movie, her family is in trouble and she returns (in Spirit) to save them from the evil forces. They are able to see her and her them. Please help me! I have been looking for this movie for over 7 years now.ahill
I am looking for the title of a movie about a man from the future who falls in love with a woman in the present. He knows she will be struck and killed by a taxi at a certain corner at a certain time. He is forbidden by the time travel rules of his future society from saving her but he tries to anyway, and in fact his attempts to injure the taxi driver the night before are the cause of the accident. But in the end he turns out to have a rare mental ability to alter events simply through the intensity of his love.
What is the movie where there is a boy who moves to a new town and has to attend a new school. He likes to skateboard and has a half pipe at his house. He either gets or finds a dog and falls in love with him. In the end of the movie, the boy is taken with current in a river and the dog saves him. The dog ends up being taken over the waterfall and they think the dog is gone for good, but the dog shows up waiting for the boy outside his school days later? Time frame for this movie is 1995 to 2005.
Trying to remember the film name. I remember a film where a woman is in an abusive relationship and at one point she's taken out on a fishing boat and she's chucked into the river with her feet in a bucket of cement (or it may be chains). She's saved by the police, I think. (They may have been bad?) Also, she looked to her male neighbor for help, who also turned out to be bad, I think! I remember the scene where it's a field near the water, and there's a dock. Sorry, it's all I remember.cementlover
I am trying to find a name of a movie in the late 80's possibly early 90's with a little girl who doesn't talk to anyone and isn't allowed to have toys. She has a nanny, the nanny makes her a doll with button eyes and the little girl then only talk to the nanny and the doll. The nanny has a boyfriend who wants to marry her. In the end the nanny steals the girl.
I am looking for the title of a movie. I watched it on Lifetime and I remember some of the details. There are 2 girls. One of them becomes friends with the other. One of them had a sister, who had a disease that lead to mental illness. The sister was killing people so the dad had to kill her with a rock in a shed. The one who had the sister is now being possessed by the sister and doing the same things as her. She tries to take peoples things and if they say no she harms and kills them. The other girl finds a victim tied up in the shed which is covered with oil. She helps her and they try to escape but the door is jammed. It starts to catch on fire when the dad saves them. I think it was from around 2009 or 2010 but I'm not sure.
