I am looking for a movie from the 80's or 90's that I believe is set in Australia. It features a boy in a mining town that has a legend of a beast living in a lake or deserted and flooded quarry. At the end of the movie we learn the beast is actually an old, sunken mining back hoe or other large piece of mining equipment.
I saw a European movie circa 1970. It was a comedy about a henpecked husband who unexpectedly becomes a widower when his slave driving wife dies. He decides to go to bed and stay there which he does for the majority of the movie. He sends his dog to the store to get supplies and has ropes set up to get things around his room without having to actually get out of bed. The name of the movie was the name of the character and I can remember neither. It was a single word like "Arthur" but it wasn't that.
I watched a movie (in the nineties, maybe late eighties) and I could have sworn a character was played by Kevin Bacon, but I have checked his films. The movie was based on a young woman who moved or arrived back into a town and she keeps on seeing a ghost of a little girl. There was also maybe an apparent murder or mystery in that town and Kevin Bacon was a young local who worked in a car workshop. From my memory she was warned off him, he was somewhat frowned upon, maybe from locals? She eventually got into a relationship with him and as I recall they had a love scene in a lighthouse? I just cannot remember the name of the movie or any actors. (This is not Stir Of Echoes as previously answered. In Stir Of Echoes Kevin Bacon and his son see the ghost of a teenage girl murdered in their house. He was already married and no scene in this movie took place in a lighthouse). So another answer to this question will be appreciated.SAZOO1975
I'm looking for the title of a movie about a racist black man. He even goes as far in his racism as joining the KKK. However, he doesn't know he is black because he is blind.Friso94
What is the recent movie(2007-2010) where a guy is at a wedding and has to sit at the kid's table because he has no date?

There's some movie (or it could be a TV episode, but I really can't remember) where two army recruits who aren't very good are dropped in the middle of the desert with a missile being sent at them. It is a test of a missile sent by the army they are training with. Somehow one or both of them manage to escape alive. Does anyone know what this scene is from?
The main character is an elderly man who can't speak. He has some kind of device which makes it possible for him to speak and eat through his neck. He lives alone in what I remember as being a big old house. His wife is dead and he somehow keeps her body in her tomb in his house. The tomb is very beautiful. It's a very special tomb because it keeps her body fresh. It is build down in the floor and he can somehow open it and look at her. It sounds very freaky, weird and perverse but this is not the mood at all. You really feel sorry for this man. He still loves her very much and in a scene he watches a kind of slideshow with pictures of her. I think she was a horseback rider and this is the cause of her death but I'm not sure. A young woman visits him. I don't remember why or what their connection is but I think it is a friendly relationship. They have dinner together. In the end he lies down next to his dead wife and dies beside her. I don't know what year the movie was released but it was in color and was shown on Danish television some time between the years 1995-2000. I was very young at the time and didn't understand English very well so I don't remember any quotes, but I don't think there was a lot of talking. I really hope you can help me - thank you.
I saw this film 15-20 years ago. There were giant ants in the Amazon jungles. I think the forest is eaten. Then the ants came to the city and I think the ants were eating humans. Finally they died by fire or being drowned under water (maybe dam water). Does anybody have any idea?cabbage
I remember seeing a movie a long time ago about a woman who sleeps with a country singer at a concert and ends up pregnant with his baby. She chases him down to tell him and I vaguely remember a scene in a diner where the pregnant woman is eating a lot of food and the waitress says something about being careful to always feed a pregnant woman to the country singer guy who was across from the pregnant woman. I really want to know what movie this is from because I liked it a lot. Does anyone know?
What is the name of a movie in which the plot is basically about a young girl who lives by a river. A boy her age is a little chubby but really likes her and tries to become friends with her, but she rejects him. He ends up drowning in the river toward the end. The girl also tries to go swimming in the same river afterwards during a storm and almost drowns. She then ends up seeing the boy's face in the moon or something along that line. I believe this movie is somewhere around the 80's or 90's?lehua1645
I saw a movie in the late 1970's (prior to 1982 anyway) about two boys who were best friends. I think it was set in Africa, possibly South Africa, since the movie focused a lot on the difficulties of their inter-racial friendship. One memorable scene is the two of them rolling down a hill in large tires. I believe one of the boys ends up in an American city (New York?) looking for someone (his friend?), but he can't speak English, which is a problem until he encounters another person from his country. Any ideas? I can't place a date on it, except probably produced sometime between 1960 to 1980. I think it was in colour.
So I've been trying to find this movie. It is a cartoon movie and I don't really remember much from it. I remember something about a girl getting lost and I remember a scene where she is at some ladies house and the lady was giving her milk and she noticed the girls face on the milk carton. It's not Face On A Milk Carton. Then I think her dad might have flown planes or something, I'm not really sure.
Today (9/29/10) I caught a little bit of a movie or show on TV, and I would love to know what it was. It was about this neighborhood where one house was a mental hospital or something; multiple "ill" people had recently moved in. The neighbors threw rocks at the house, and discussed that it was dangerous to live near those people. A few of the neighbors started interacting with the "ill" people, specifically, a neighbor-woman was friendly with one of the ill women at a supermarket, and only later realized she lived in that place.Heather19
My wife is looking for the title of a film involving a deranged old man and a little girl going on different adventures, on of which involving a giant floating head. The old man also has a horse and gives the little girl a rose. It looks as if they're journeying through different dimensions or time periods. Any thoughts?
Need help remembering the title of this film. An American film, possibly late 80's early 90's, in which a grandmother passes away but she is a main character in the film as a ghost, and she guides her grandchildren into burying her body where she wanted to be buried, not wanted to be buried where she died.
Looking for movie title or actors: a comedy duo, one short and fat, one tall and thin, in Europe. Once at the Vatican dressed as monks, once in a Ferrari driving at 200 mph, and once they were asked to take a picture and ran away with the camera.Thundering1
I watched this movie when i was small (in the 90's),wherein the lead actor or the villain (I'm not sure)has a severely burnt face and wears a mask always.towards the end there is a scene showing him without his mask, his lips have been burnt off and you can only see the teeth. The last scene shows him walking away as the woman he rescued (not sure) stares at his retreating figure. I really have to know the name of this movie. I know it's not adequate,but this is all i can remember. Hopefully you can help. Thank you.
