Question: I think the film I'm thinking of is pretty well known, but I only actually know one scene from it. There are men in a desert (I think) and they all stand up claiming to be someone - saying "I am!", and "No, I am!", but I just can't remember the name they say. I think the name is also the name of the film. Hopefully someone can figure out the name of this film from this information.
Question: I'm trying to remember the name of a Christmas movie that I think was on Nickelodeon around 2000, or so. It was about a bunch of toys who desperately wanted to see what kind of new toys would be coming to the house. They were lead by a stuffed lion. It had basically the same premise as 'Toy Story', but this one was more puppet-y, kind of like Sesame Street puppets. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.Danelle Williams
Question: I saw this movie what seems like a long time ago, but I don't know how long. I don't remember it well at all, but I can remember little bits. There was a bus that sank in a river or lake. There was a character who had baseball cards taken away by the principal of the school. At the very end of the movie, the main character is grown up and looking at the grave of his friend that died. Any help?
Question: The only scene I remember from this movie, is that one or two boys who liked science created something that looked like a little glowing blue circle of light. It flew around and went through a shelf of books, putting holes through all of the books. I thought it might be Weird Science, but I haven't seen that whole movie before, so I'm not sure. I saw this when I was younger kid, so please forgive me if it's a really popular/obvious movie.
Question: This movie is set in the eighties, probably made in the nineties. The two main characters are girls who reunite after some time. They keep quoting and referring to the Bronte sisters. One of the girls fall for a guy who wears a Smiths t-shirt. The setting is gloomy and in the UK. The copy I saw had "demo copy not for resell" scrolling on it. I have never seen this movie for rent or sale.
Question: This was an episode of a cartoon show that I saw sometime in the 1990's, probably not later than 2002. Two kids, who I think were friends and not siblings, were in a magical place where they got to create their own worlds. There was a river dividing their pieces of land. Their parents are watching this from some kind of room, and as the parents argue and won't get along, the children also argue and begin to create more scary and negative things in their worlds. I remember that the girl started with a pet kitten and the boy had a pet puppy, but after they started fighting over who was going to come over to whose side of the river, they got impatient and angry. The boy made his puppy into a wolf and the girl made her kitten into a big cougar/wild cat. Does anyone remember what show this was?
Question: I can't remember if I was watching Tales from the Crypt or Twilight Zone or what. But it was about this lady and a man (let's just call them Bob and Mary). Well Mary was cheating with Bob and on one occasion the husband was watching them and they were saying to each other "I want your body." So the husband knocked them out and when they came to, he had attached Mary's head to Bob's body and Bob's head to Mary's body. And then the husband sai,d "Well you said you wanted each others body." Does anyone know what I was watching and the name of the episode?
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie, probably from the 60's or maybe early 70's. All I can remember is that during the film (maybe the beginning) there was a scene where several children had a huge gun battle with toy guns firing plastic bullets. Can anyone please offer any information?
Question: Trying to figure out what I saw on TV the other day. I get to see what my neighbors are watching since our cable seems to keep getting mixed up with theirs. Anyway, there was a blond lady, about upper 30's, who somehow gets trapped in a house near a lake. She's dressed like she's on an Australian safari or something, then out of nowhere there's also a man in the house. Well, they both see they're dopplegangers (but this movie is not Doppleganger). The woman's doppleganger chases her into the closet and she runs out of the house. The man comments on how when you see your doppleganger it means you're going to die. The house starts to shake and everything cleans itself up and goes back to normal. And that's all I saw because the neighbors changed the channel to porno. Can anyone tell me what I was watching?
Question: Movie from the mid-90's or early 2000's. A creature from the deep attacks a cruise liner in the South China Sea. A team of thieves board the ship to raid the vault as part of some insurance fraud plot. Violence ensues, good guys escape; they use some jet skis to get to nearby island. Please help me think of the title.
Question: I'm trying to recall the name of a TV show I watched when I was little. I think it was a kid's show; I seem to remember funny skits or cartoons and in between was a little song with the lines "Bibbity bobbity, that makes good sense, good old nonsense!" and "Pennies are pence to me." Does anyone else remember this?Jeff Swanson
Question: I saw a movie probably at least 15 years ago - though it could have been an older movie then. The movie was about a man who time traveled from the future to the present (around the time the movie was made). I don't why he time traveled but while he was there he met his grandfather or great grandfather and ended up helping this man become a hero by gettting him (as he was destined to do in a predestined paradox) to save a bunch of people from a fire. Does anyone know the title of this movie? It's definitely not Frequency.Lori Kaminsky
Question: I saw this episode of a TV show once, although maybe it was a movie on TV. A woman's mother had been murdered. There were flashbacks that showed the woman as a girl, and her mother was abusive to her. The flashbacks showed the mother threatening to kill the girl's cat (while the girl was sitting at a piano), saying the girl looked like a "fat little pig" in a certain dress, and the girl hiding in a dark room (I think a cellar or garage) while her mother was looking for her. There was also a scene where the adult woman finds a teddy bear that she owned as a child in her mother's house. Does anyone know what TV show or movie this was?
Question: It's been about 8 years since I've seen the movie but all I remember is that in the beginning a girl comes down the stairs and tries to talk to her mother who is having a party around a piano and singing songs. As the girl stands there she urinates for a very long time. I remember it was about exorcism, but not "The Exorcist". I appreciate any help as I have searched and failed to find out what this is. Thank you.
Question: Is there any reason why a lot of new movie previews (at least where I live, in the USA) have a black bar across the top of the screen during the entire preview, which displays the movie title and the date it opens in theaters? Two of the movies I have seen previews like this for are Twilight and Lakeview Terrace, in case that helps.
Question: A movie question. I thought that when a movie goes straight to DVD/video/Blue Ray instead of being shown in theaters first, it's because critics gave it very bad reviews. However, there are some movies that continue to have several sequels coming out on DVD, such as the Beethoven dog movies and the Bring It On movies. Why do movie companies continue to produce them when the previous two or three sequels didn't make it to the theaters?
Question: I watched part of a movie years ago. I don't remember the name of the movie. Please help! All I remember is. there is a guy on a computer (let's name this guy Bob) looking at famous historical photographs, and he notices in the background of each picture, there is the same guy (let's call this guy John). John is super ugly. I think later on in the movie Bob is trying to track down John.
