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 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 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: I am searching for a movie I saw in grade school several years ago. The only thing I can remember about it was from the perspective of insects, played by humans of course. I remember a spider and a dragonfly, which gets caught in his/her web. The only other thing I can remember is a cigarette butt being thrown into the grass causing the insects to flee. Does anyone have any idea about the name and possibly if it is still available to purchase?
Question: I saw a movie ten years ago. It had a female house worker, or nanny, taking care of a family. The women is given a grandfather or cookoo clock at the start of the film and weird stuff starts happening. The father is attacked by a dog. The son kills the same dog and shoves it down a drain pipe. A person hangs themselves outside the house, and the father starts to bleed black ooze. The women eventually traces all these events back to the mysterious clock. The women goes inside the clock and destroys it. When she does, the lady wakes up at the start again, like the whole movie was a dream. A few minutes later, the women is given the same clock. she goes crazy and destroys it in a rage. Does anyone recognise this movie?
Question: O.K. nobody has been able to give me the title to this movie I rented about 12-15 years ago. The movie was about a woman who wakes up in a desert and has no idea how she got there or why. I remember her finding a resort with people there but either, they don't know her, don't recognize her, or maybe it was they don't acknowledge her. As the story winds it's way through the plot, you find out in the end, the reason the other people are ignoring her, is that the woman had died while parachuting in the desert. I don't remember the actress name, but at the time she was a recognizable face, as was her friend at the resort.
Question: I saw this on tv about 15 years ago. I'm not sure if it was a film or a 2 part drama. There was a male artist who had ginger hair and he married this woman (ginger hair also) who he did a portrait of on their first meeting, which I think was in France or Italy. They had a daughter but split up a few years later. The father began to drink while the mum became quite successful. The daughter died while out on a boat, she fell off onto the anchor. Not a common death scene. Thanks.
Question: I seen a movie around in the 70's, a family is at a park, they see a pregnant woman and take her in.after she has her baby she disappears and they adopt the girl. As the girl gets older one by one she kills off the real children, two boys and a girl. At the end of the movie, it shows the same pregnant woman leaving with another family. I desperately need to know the name of this movie.
Question: This is a game show that used to be on Nickelodeon. It had a jungle theme, and the players had to go through an obstacle course. In at least one episode, there was a part where they had to get gold pieces of a statue (I think it was of a monkey) and put it together before time was up. Does anyone remember the name?
Question: I'm looking for a movie from the 80's, possibly early 90's. There are two guys and one of them seems insane or delusional talking about aliens. The second guy doesn't believe him, but starts to wonder. The "delusional" guy sees an alien news story on the cover of a tabloid in a gas station store and he believes its true. Near the end, he pulls out a pen that transforms and flies around like a helicopter. Any ideas?
Question: There was a movie in the early 90s, it was a scary movie and it was about a woman who wanted to lose weight. She ordered this special diet package that came with ear buds, glasses, and finally a needle and thread. The ear buds make her hear the food, the glasses make her see the food, and when neither of them work she sews her lips shut. Help please?
