Question: I'll try to be as detailed as possible. This is a late 70's, early 80's movie. Tenants at a high rise apartment building were being killed off 1 by 1. The police thought the killer was the night doorman whose name was Vincent, but it turned out to be the day doorman who was jealous of all the attention the night doorman was getting from all the tenants. The night doorman and his catatonic mother were the last victims before the police found out the truth. Also the night doorman had a rich female tenant who had a crush on him and was always trying to invite him up to her place for cake.SAZOO1975
Question: I seem to remember seeing an animated movie when my kids were small, mid 90's, that had a scene with an overweight, lazy dachshund rolling around on a skateboard. If I remember correctly the dog was owned by the "villain" in the movie but I'm not sure. My kids have been laughing at me for years because no one else remembers it and they say I dreamed it. Can anyone help me get the last laugh?
Question: I'm trying to figure out what movie this is from: "I used to be an optimist, but I'm not anymore". The main character in the movie is a young girl and is told early on that she is an optimist, and learns what this word means. A lot of messed up stuff happens in the course of the film and when asked by a teacher to write an essay under the topic, "I used to be, but I'm not anymore" she writes her essay beginning with the above quote and reads it aloud to the class. Can ANYONE help me with this? It's driving me nuts.
Question: I'm trying to remember the name of a movie. All I can remember from it is the bad guy laying on the ground almost dead. Then the good guy (or girl, don't remember) comes over to put him out of his misery by suffocating him. They say something to the effect of "This is more than you deserve" then before the person is dead the good guy changes his mind and the bad guy lives. Can someone please help me?
Question: There is this movie that I can't remember the name of - I saw in on TV back in the mid 90's. It was about a little boy who kept killing his family members. I don't remember much of it but there was a scene where the boy's grandmother was in the hospital on one of those breathing machines and the boy went and unplugged it so she died. I think he also pushed someone else into a pool who drowned. I know it's a long shot but if anyone can help me name this movie, I'd be so appreciative. Thank you.
Question: I am looking for the title of a foreign film I saw in the late 60's or early seventies about a man with three testicles. I believe it may have been an Italian comedy. My recollection was that it was titled "Man of the Year", but I am only coming up with the contemporary movie of the same title.
Question: Google can't seem to help me with this, so I'll have to ask you. A movie I saw sometime in the early 2000s, I think, featured a woman who has a little girl. This girl, who's autistic, is obsessed with building towers from playing cards or building blocks, to reach her father, whom she thinks is in the moon. The father had died in a climbing accident. Ring any bells? The movie's probably filmed between the years 1995-2002.
Question: Does anyone remember a movie, probably made in the late 70's early 80's somewhere in that time. All I can remember is that its a horror movie, about a little girl who fell in a well and died, its got some rhyme that goes with it but I cannot remember. I also believe that it has some type of clown doll in it also.
Question: I would like to know the name of a tv show that I saw a few years ago. All I can remember is, in one episode this woman (main character?) went to see the famiily of her boyfriend, and he has a brother who pretends to be retarded after an accident the brother causes, and he feels quilty and looks after him and wears a helmet of some sort. In the end the family find out he is faking it.
Question: There's this movie that I've been trying to find that I can't really provide a lot of details about, because I watched it as a kid. I think it's an early 90's movie (definitely before 1996, anyway) or possibly late 80's (89 maybe). It's kind of an action film (sort of), and has a dark-haired, handsome young guy in the lead. The only thing I can remember is that in the movie, he gets a red convertible, and that towards the end, there's a burning (fire) scene, and he has these special shoes that help him stick to the roof (so that he doesn't fall). I know that's a very bad description, but it's all I can remember. Hopefully you can help. I watched it dubbed in French.
Question: I am looking for information on a movie possibly filmed 1995-2002 that featuring a woman with a little girl who is autistic and is obsessed with building towers from playing cards or building blocks. She hopes in doing this she will reach her father believed to be on the moon whom died in a climbing accident.
Question: I am looking for a title of a movie that I believe was made in the 80's, possibly early 90's. All I can remember is that there was a boy who had a lot of junk, and wanted to get rid of it, but someone didn't want him to and told him it was valuable. I also remember there being a little rat-like creature, and them using the term "scuz-bucket" quite often. I believe at one point there was a tunnel of some sorts, and the creature coming out of behind a dumpster? I vividly remember a point where the boy was at a gas station, and had a station wagon type vehicle full of all this supposed "junk." I appreciate the help.
