Question: I am trying to find the name of this movie. It was made around the late 70's to mid 80's and is a horror movie about a giant swarm of bees. The only thing I remember from it was the final scene took place inside the Louisiana Superdome, and the bees were swarmed around a car sitting in the middle of the football field. The main characters figured out that they had to freeze the bees to death, so the had to lower the air temperature to below 39 degrees which killed the bees. But the final scene reveals one bee was still alive, hinting that the swarm would rebuild. I have tried and tried to find the title of this movie and I can't. Please help.New Orleans Guy
Question: I saw this movie recently on TV. The only thing I remember is a bunch of guys dressed up as workers, and one of them was up a pole as a construction worker and another was a cop. They were on some sort of stakeout, and when they were spotted they ran into a club. The guys chasing them ran in after them, but couldn't find them as they had taken to the stage and were performing as the Village People. Any ideas?
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie that was released in the 70s. A man and his wife are in a car accident and her wicked mother-in-law wants him to believe his wife has died. The mother-in-law has his wife's identity altered with plastic surgery and makes the daughter-in-law believe that her husband died in the accident. The son believes his wife died in the accident, but later sees a finished painting that his wife had not finished prior to the accident. He discovers that his mother had deceived him and his wife. I believe this movie was being played around the same time that Cabaret was released. Thank you.rubyscuetime
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie (it probably came out in the early to mid 90s) about two kids that steal a car and go on a joyride. If I remember correctly, they were young, like 8-10. I could have sworn that the title was two names like Sam & Mike, or something like that. I've just about given up hope of finding the name of this movie. Thanks for your time.
Question: I'm looking for the title of a movie I saw on TV in the mid-90s, which must have been produced in the late 80s or early 90s. The film is set in California and is about a man who rescues a woman who is being pursued by some kind of cult (satanic I think). In one scene the man has a strange encounter in an occult bookshop. The twist is that the woman is in fact a member of the cult and the man is the sacrifice; the cult's ritual requires that the sacrifice arrives at the sacrifice site voluntarily, which the man does thinking he is helping the woman. In the final scene, the woman approaches another man for help, and the cycle is about to repeat itself. Does anyone know this movie?triplewin
Question: Years ago I remember watching a two part movie on HBO, STARZ or some other movie channel like that on Comcast's on demand cable. It was about two people who (I think) were having to stay awake because creatures in the dark would come and get them. I think the creatures stalked them and branded them or something, like how we tag animals to track their movement. The creatures branded or tagged them by a red blemish on the skin, which below the blemish was a bone-hook type thing. These monsters lived in the shadows and I can only remember a few scenes so bare with me please. 1. There are 3 characters that I can remember; a guy, his girlfriend and, I think, his ex-girlfriend. In one scene, the guy thinks the creatures have "tagged" his girlfriend because she has a weird mark on her. She's missing the next day. 2. The "ex-girlfriend" goes to a bathroom in a bar and pulls out the bone from her temple. 3. In the final scene the ex-girlfriend ends up in an asylum. The camera pans into a closet and you see all these monsters and then she is dragged into a closet by the creatures. Sorry for the giant post, but I have to find the movie again. Thanks for the help.
Question: I remember a movie when I was a kid that I can't find the title to. I remember things like there was this device. I think it was rectangular in shape. In one scene, a guy is driving with the device in his car down a desolate highway and the power lines are like blowing up because he has the device in his car. I think I remember things like a guy walking into a building only to find fog, and barbarians. There might have been something with a high school too.fyrmn14
Question: I remember seeing a movie on TV once. It involved these hijackers who hijacked a plane (no 9/11 movies). This guy on the plane, when threatened with a gun by the hijackers tells them he has a family but they kill him anyway. After that, all I remember is a part where the hijackers are at a fair, looking for someone. Something about a ferris wheel. If anyone could help me, I'd greatly appreciate it.MooCow
Question: I once saw an old (1930's) comedy movie with a train. I remember two specific scenes: 1. A donkey was standing too close to the track, and could not be made to move. So the engineer gets off the locomotive and pulls the track aside, and the train made a curve around the donkey. 2. At one point the wood that the locomotive used was almost gone. So the engineer and the fireman started throwing rocks to people living close to the railroad track. These started to throw back wooden blocks because that was all they could find. In the next scene, the fireman and the engineer would collect all the wooden blocks with which the train could continue. The train had a caboose at the end and the guy had a horn that he would blow when something was wrong. I always thought that Buster Keaton played in it, but I've checked all his movies and I can't find it in the list. Does anybody have any idea?
Question: I saw this movie in the 80s, but can't remember any of the actors' names or the title. It is about a bunch of criminals, like drug dealers, car thieves and stuff that get caught, sent to jail and then instead of going to prison they get sent to this island, where they have to survive, work together and eventually go back home to LA, I think.
Question: I cannot remember a movie that I watched sometime ago. I think it was about a son looking for his father, or going to meet his father, and he has his mother in the car. She is remembering his life since his contraception, which was in a car, and then later with her in the hospital giving birth to a son instead of a daughter, which she wanted. Her best friend gives birth to a daughter. The mothers are still friends, but the one who is remembering is always frustrated with her son. I cannot remember the title, but I think it has something to do with 'surrounded by boys' or 'living with boys'. Can anyone help?
Question: For any scene that involves someone either standing in front of or walking casually away from a massive explosion, what's usually done to ensure the actor isn't burned from the heat or deafened by the noise?
Question: How are food scenes in films and TV shows catered for, so to speak? Does the crew ready a set number of portions of what will be eaten in the scene beforehand and just hope they get a good take before supply runs out?
Question: I saw a film from the 1990s or early 2000s. I only remember the end where the FBI, mafia, cops, a wanted fugitive (I think), criminals, and one of the main characters all get tricked into meeting at a cafe or restaurant. There is a massive shootout, and I think it was all set up to kill one guy. Thanks in advance for the help; this has been killing me for years.prettyez
Question: I saw a movie in the early 90's about a German concentration camp. It was a disturbing movie depicting happenings in the camp. I remember seeing people being led in to gas chambers etc. One particular scene I remember was a little naked boy trying to run away. The German guard let his dog loose and let it chase down the kid killing him. I need to know the title.Mortug
Question: I saw a movie quite a few years ago about a man getting killed by accident before his wedding and he fights against death, then comes back for his girlfriend, but she gets killed just after the man gains his life back. Can anyone tell me the name of this movie?
Question: I remember an episode of Looney Tunes or Merry Melodies which I can't remember its name; throughout the entire episode, a wolf is following Little Red Riding Hood to her grandma's house and keeps seeing this little fellow with a funny walk and a big nose (I think it's egghead but I'm not sure) who passes through the scene and whistles a tune. At the end, after reaching grandma's house, he sees the whistling guy once again and asks who he is. The guy knocks him out with a large hammer and says: "I'm a hunter". Can someone please tell me the name of that episode?
Question: Trying to remember the title of a movie. Its animated, intelligent and most likely in the Drama-genre. Its got like 4 or 5 main characters. And a key sentence that gets brought up is "Less Theory, More Action" . Also, one of the scenes is them trying to explain dreams, and goes like "To figure out if you're awake or its a dream, try turning off the light switch in a room, the lights don't change by a switch in a dream." Time range of production, 2002-2008 maybe? Anyone seen it? Know the title?
