Question: I would like to know the name of a movie. It was made a while ago and it had three brothers. They wanted to help their mom out by going on a trip to the mountains to make a movie about bears. On their journey they passed a crocodile scene and an eagle scene.
Question: I'm trying to remember the title of a film that came out in the late 80's or early 90's (I think; could have been a little earlier) about a group of young adults who engage in philosophical banter. The dialogue is very rich and several story lines are dealt with simultaneously. It might have "Hampton" in the title or take place in the Hamptons. Thanks.
Question: I am trying to remember the name of a movie. I think it was about aliens that look like human beings and infect new ones to try to take over the Earth. In the final scene, two aliens, a man and a woman have a human baby in the back seat of a car. They turn around and speak to it in gibberish, showing us that they are aliens.
Question: I would like to know about a movie/tv show about a little girl who sat on a swing with her cat and used to sing a song in a differant language. She used to blame things on her cat when she got in trouble. The show aried in the 50s or 60s.
Question: A movie as I recall is a horror/thriller. A man brings his newlywed wife home where his father and grandfather live. The marriage was a farce as the family needed her for some experiment, possibly to bring someone back from the dead. One scene I can think of that someone would remember is where the grandfather (who is dying) asks his grandson's wife to undress for him.
Question: I saw a movie in the 1990s it may have even came out in the late 80s. All that I can remember was that it is a cartoon with the characters living underground. I remember they are running away from something and that there was lava. Also, at the end two of them fight a dragon and eventually reach paradise. I am also pretty sure that they got caught somewhere along the movie and something happen to make them slow and groggy. Anyone know what it is?
Question: I'm trying to find a movie made in the 90s, in the movie there was two guys (one had curly hair I believe (not 100% sure if he did or not). One of them was with a girl in the beginning of the movie, but she left him on a row boat, so him and his friend had to get home on foot. On their way home, a guy picks them up but pulls out a gun and makes them undress. So they have to get home on foot now in their underwear. Anyone know the title?
Question: Hello. I wonder if anyone can help me find the name of a film that was on tv around 25 years ago. It was the same story as Incredible Journey, but involved two little dogs: one looked like a fox and the other was white and hairy (short). Every holiday I have looked for it but, it has as far as I know never been on tv again .
Question: I think this may have been an episode from a sci fi/horror anthology show from the 1970's. A young girl has a doll house that is a replica of the house she is living in and a doll for each member of the family. The dolls were very strange looking. Kind of round and flat. Whatever she made the dolls do, the family member did the same. One night the house caught fire and she dropped a doll while getting out. I think it was either the doll for her grandfather or uncle. The person ended up burning to death.
Question: In sci fi movies it seems (mostly) there is one scene with a rotating fan or fans. Usually they are backlit and slightly foggy, but they usually serve no purpose. Sometimes a duct fan, sometimes a stand-up room fan. One film had 20 of the things in a 'wall of fans'. Does anybody know the significance of throwing a meaningless fan into a movie?
Question: I need the title to a movie seen on TV about 30 years ago. The movie ends with a battle between armored knights and a host of archers. I think the archers are supposed to be English longbowmen. The knights get surrounded in the open and the archers kill them all with volleys of arrows.
Question: I am trying to remember the name of a cartoon movie from the early to mid 1980's. It is about a prince and a princess who fall in love but they can't be together because one is the child of the sun god and the other is the child of the sea god. Neither of them are able to live in the other's world. Does anyone have a clue as what this might be?
Question: I remember an old 80's horror film where the kids use a skeleton key to enter a door in the basement. I also remember the villain was trapped in a statue and gets set free. It's live action. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie that i saw years ago,it was probably made in the 60's or 70's,about a free spirited girl who is in an unconventional relationship with a man. She has a cat she named "mouse". I think in the end scene of the movie she turns around three times saying "i divorce thee, i divorce thee, i divorce thee", i'm not quite sure, but i think in the beginning of the movie she marries him the same way saying "i marry thee" three times while turning around.
Question: Can anyone help me with the title to this movie? I remember only the final scene, in which two boys (one from Cambodia) and a girl are riding in a train. The boy from Cambodia is really worried about his mother, who is still in their native country, so he says he's going to go home and marry her so he can take care of her. I don't remember anything else. I must have seen it in the mid-1980s. Does anyone know what this movie is?
Question: I remember seeing a movie in cinema when I was very young (about 1996-1998 I think). It was set in Medieval times and the main character was a boy. The movie had to do with hawks - I think the boy wanted to become a hawk-trainer. I remember a scene, where someone was hiding under a rug, and some guards came in and were looking for that person. They were told that there was a bear under the rug and they ran away. Also, the movie ends with a scene of the boy running in a field with a hawk.
Question: Can anybody help me name the movie I saw quite a while back? The film is British. It was about a series of murders of young girls. The crimes get solved by a young noblewoman and a police officer who of course fall in love. And the murderer is a quite mad wife of a local priest.
