Question: There is a movie I can't remember much of, and it's driving me bonkers. I think it is a parody of superhero movies, but I'm not sure. I only remember two scenes: in one, a guy opens a 'tornado in a can.'I think the can was green with white letters. In another, a man literally gets fried on a chair by the villain. Can anyone help me remember the name of this movie?
Question: A clothed man is running on a beach being chased by huge balls. They seem to be giant inflatable balls, all yellow, with evil purpose. He is older and not athletic and I have the image of Peter Davison which makes me think its from a Doctor Who episode. I've searched every Doctor Who episode though and cannot find the scene. Does anyone know what episode or movie this is from?
Question: I saw this film about twenty years ago and was wondering if anyone else has any idea of information on it. It was black and white about a fort set in old west and it was a comedy. It had a song saying something like "if you could only hear the hoofbeats on the ground" which was accompanied with footage of a horse running. Anything that comes to mind would be greatly appreciated. I saw it one time with my mom and the ten year anniversary of her death is coming up, and I would like to watch it again. Thanks.razoprill
Question: This has been driving me crazy! I want to watch a movie that I saw about 10 years ago, but don't remember the title or actors. Briefly, a man's wife and child have just been murdered, and the murderer commits suicide right after. During his grieving the man stumbles upon a home video of his child taping his wife driving. The man that murders his family is shown on tape jumping out in front of the car and saves them from an accident. Turns out that the man who killed his wife and child had gotten the ability to see when people were about to die, and they would be shown with a bright aura around them. However, anyone he saves from death becomes demonic and starts killing people. When the man realizes this he goes back and kills everyone he's saved, thus explaining why he murdered his wife and child. Sound familiar to anyone? I really hope so 'cause this has been driving me insane.chinothe1285
Question: I'm looking for the name of a 1980s animated movie which I saw on TV when I was little about a young dinosaur whose mother dies near the start of the movie. He goes on an adventure with other young dinosaurs. I think it might be a Disney movie, but I'm not sure. I can't remember the exact plot. I was wondering if anyone has any idea what this movie is.
Question: Okay it is a 70's-80's movie. I don't now how it starts, but the story leads to two girls kidnapping a older guy and holding him hostage in a house and making him their "sex slave". If I remember correctly, one of them says something like this "I want to check, it is possible f*ck a men to a death?" I also recall him speaking at the end - something like "more, more". IT WASN'T A PORN MOVIE. I watched it on normal TV. Anybody know the title?drvampire
Question: I am looking for an old black & white mystery movie about an old miserly woman whose family is fighting over money or a will or jewelry (pearls or something). She owns a house with a large walk in vault. There is a ventilation system inside the vault, but she has the vents closed up and the movie ends with her walking into the vault and the door accidentally closes behind her, trapping her, presumably suffocating her to death. Any idea the movie name?
Question: I am looking for the name of the film I saw a long time ago. It is some sort of drama which is set almost entirely in an apartment of one guy, who apparently has two girlfriends and a sick mother, whom he has some sort of psychological, incestuous relationship with. At some point, his girlfriend visits him, and after a while of talking, another girl comes, and this unusual trio starts talking about various things, and at some point, talking about sexual intercourse (which only happened between him and one of the girls ultimately). I don't remember the end, but remember him talking to his mother on the phone, and one of the girls left, and the other stayed to the end consoling him about the death of his mother.Komle
Question: What is the name of the movie where one of the main characters has the ringtone on his cell phone set to the wicked witch of the west when his wife calls? The only other thing I remember about this movies is that one of the characters is completely bald except for a blonde ponytail on his forehead.Hope somebody can help me out.
Question: I am looking for the name of an old film, the only thing I know is an scene in which a clown tries really hard to make a little kid laugh but it doesn't matter how hard he tries the kid doesn't laugh, at then end the clown gives up and began crying at that same moment the kid begins laughing because he has never seen a clown crying., My father has talked about this movie since I was a kid but he does not remember the title or anything else, and through the years I have been looking for it, but I have never been able to find it. He claims that the main character was Jerry Lewis, but I an not sure about that, so if anyone can help me it will be great, I really want to give him that movie as a present. Thanks.
Question: Looking for a movie that has a cartoon within it. It's a 1960's movie with real actors doing a scene which is then reproduced in animation in front of us, the audience. The production of the comic strip is part of the story line. It may be a made-for-TV movie rather than a Hollywood film. The only other thing I remember is that the cameras that the audience can see (that are used to film it for the animation) are mounted on gunstocks which are aimed at the actors. Anyone know what the name is?
Question: I watched this movie maybe 10 years ago but I can't remember the name or any of the actors. The only two scenes I remember is in the beginning there are a lot of people in this big warehouse/laboratory type room and in the middle is this circular glass room with a little blond girl inside and she seems frightened, I think she may have been crying. And off to the side these two men are looking at the glass room and talking about how the girl is a fantastic scientific discovery or something like that and one guy seems to be worried that the room isn't secure enough and the other says the glass is reinforced super glass and there's no way in Hell she can escape. At that moment the girl punches a hole through the glass and escapes, killing or injuring a few people along the way. The girl ends up outside and she sees a train but I can't remember if she gets on it or not. The other scene I remember is the girl is an adult and she's kissing this guy and her tongue some how busts through the back of his head killing him. If someone knows this movie or knows where I can find it I'd greatly appreciate it, It's been killing me for years.apple0999
