Question: I am looking for the title of a movie...I believe from the late 80s or early 90s it is a period drama...turn of the century. A young woman marries an older man with a beard. They have several children and one of the children is injured in I believe a hunting accident and becomes blind (I think).
Question: I am looking for a movie from late 80s or 90s. America. There is a girl and two brothers (maybe step-brothers). The girl is in relationship with one of the brothers. Girl lives in big house (kinda wealthy). She cheats on her boyfriend with her boyfriend's brother. I can remember some scenes: girl is dancing sensually in bar; one of the brothers goes in jail and when the girl visits him, she says "I want you inside me right now"; hotel scene at the end where the boyfriend finds out that the girl is cheating on him with his brother - there is also shooting in this scene. There are very many sex scenes in this movie. In the storyline there was some issue with the girl's family and at the end it's revealed that the girl had a plan and she played a game, and the brothers were somehow part of it. I hope somebody recognizes the movie and knows the name. Thanks.
Question: I need a title of a film that's very old, probably from late 80s or 90s. I can't remember the actors' names since I was very young when I first saw it, so this is going to be hard. A guy moves into (or passes through) a small town, possibly south USA, where he encounters a gorgeous young raven-haired woman, who is married to an abusive man, who turns out to be her step-father. Sometime during the movie in a climactic scene she realizes that he (her step-father) is the one who killed her own mother with an axe, and with the help of the guy from the beginning, she kills him, and then dumps his body in a car and off a cliff.
Question: This story appeared on a "short story" type of thriller/scary show (i.e. "Night Visions" or "Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction"). A younger man is married to an older, wealthy woman. I am very sure that the woman had short hair of a red/auburn shade, but I might be wrong. The man is cheating on her with a younger woman. The man and younger woman kill his wife - I forget how - but accidents with tools or household objects cause them to end up being killed themselves. Does anyone know what show this was on?
Question: I need help in identifying a movie, please. The only scene/moment I can recall, is 2 huge things (ships, or something) one on each side of the earth. And there was some type of gravity pulse going back and forth between them. You would see a momentary rise of the buildings, rubble, etc. Into the air, then crashing back to the ground. I believe it was inevitably trying to match earth's gravity with the gravity of some other alien planet. Any thoughts?Thairen Finley
Question: Looking for a "time travel" movie in which the two main characters, a man and woman, communicate across time. He lives in "Aniston", while she lives in "Anne's Town." She can see the future through his eyes, but not vice versa. She is shocked/awed by seeing an airplane. Most likely a TV Movie and from the late 70s to early 80s. Thanks.
Question: I'm looking for a movie where a husband and wife are kidnapped by two men, one middle aged and the other one was younger. I'm not sure if it was in a cabin or a boat that they were on. Anyway, the wife is raped by the younger kidnapper and apparently falls in love/feels attached to him. The movie could have been made in the 90's I'm assuming. I believe it was an American made movie. Grateful for any assistance rendered, thanks.
Question: I've been desperately trying to find the title of a film I saw a few years ago and really enjoyed. I can't remember any of the actors' names and the main plot line is a bit hazy, but hopefully I have enough information for someone out there to recognize it and tell me what movie this is. It's a drama with comedic elements, it's the story of 2 or 3 siblings, I remember the brother having some emotional issues (he smokes too much, stays up all night, never gets out of his pajamas or walks around completely naked) and having recently moved back in with an older sister (perhaps after a parent has died?). The younger sister (an actress with a Lizzie Caplan, Zooey Deschanel type of look) returns from out of town and sees her ex-boyfriend, now in a wheelchair. They'd broken up, she left town, he got drunk and wrapped his car around a tree and lost use of his legs. He's now engaged to an overweight pretty redhead who was his nurse and perhaps physiotherapist. Does any of this ring a bell to anyone? Toward the end of the film the younger sister character runs to the ex-boyfriend's house, breaks down crying, sits on his lap and he holds her, and eventually (after they've shared a kiss, I think) she falls asleep, only to wake up to find him hanging out with his new fiancee by their pool in their backyard. The chubby redhead fiancee invites the younger sister to the wedding with an invitation, I think. I remember the families of the ex-boyfriend and the younger sister used to be close friends, there is now some bitterness between younger sister's siblings who stand up for her, and the ex's parents. I hope this helps.
Question: Looking for a movie title that was or appears to be set in Alaska or an area somewhat like it. A man is new to a small town, maybe an outsider to the people that live there. He might be a writer. There was something about a boy. Not sure if he kidnapped or found out about a kidnapping. It was a slow paced movie. I think it came out late 1990's or early 2000's.shhark
Question: I am searching for the name of an old comedy, I believe, possibly black and white I saw as a child. Part of the story centers around a woman trying to lure a man to marry her. To do so she refuses to take off her white gloves until he becomes so obsessed with what is beneath them he marries her.jackrabbit1313
Question: I watched a movie years ago about some young brothers playing (1800's) and they take a little wealthy girl for fun. They are afraid to return her so they raise her as their sister. Years later, after some of her brothers die, she's told the truth about who she is and returns home. She looks exactly like the portrait on the wall of her mother. I can't remember any more.
Question: There was a movie I saw maybe in the 80's. It was about a boy who ends up with some pirates that travel to different planets. During the movie the captain's crew is getting killed by several enemies. The captain is seriously injured so the boy takes some tools to save the captain's life. The movie ends with the captain living and either leaving the kid on another planet or returning him to his home planet.
