Question: There was a TV movie about a man who was accused of raping a blind woman. He insists he's innocent but the woman claims that she could identify him by a scar on his face. The man goes to prison, and while he's there he makes friends with another prisoner who tells him that one prisoner keeps boasting about how he raped a blind woman and someone else took the fall for it. Ironically, the prisoner has the same scar as the innocent man. The woman, now a lawyer, receives a letter from the man informing her of some new evidence, and when a DNA test is done, the man is finally freed from prison. The woman then goes to the man to make amends for sending him to prison.

Chosen answer: "Blind Injustice" (2005 TV Movie): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0453348/.

Question: Looking for a TV show episode. A woman who was an informant in Iraq was killed. She was having an affair with her FBI handler. The guy responsible was interviewed early in the episode. He made a deal with the feds to escape prosecution, but was able to be prosecuted by the military because he was being treated for an injury at the VA.

Chosen answer: There is a scene like that in the the 1970 movie Little Big Man with Dustin Hoffman, who observes this while hiding from the army also. Alternatively Man in the Wilderness with Richard Harris. Made in the mid seventies. He plays trapper abandoned by his comrades, after being mauled by a grizzly bear. He survives and tries to catch up with his friends and has several small adventures along the way, including watching an Indian woman give birth to a child.

Question: Hi, I'm searching for a name of a movie that I saw maybe 20 years ago. I can't remember much, but I think it's in a small town, and there's this guy that hides in the woods (can't remember why), and either his grandmother or mother are helping him, they give him food, etc. I know, not much to go on, but I'd really appreciate if someone would help me. Thank you.

Question: A girl is in a foster home and the only friends she has are these little paper dolls. The other girls bully her, and one girl tries to drown her when she's in the bath. She gets told off for it because she wasn't supposed to get her hair wet, and then she pushes the bully down the stairs, who I think breaks her neck and dies.

Chosen answer: The movie name is "Dustbin Baby".

Question: Forgotten the film. I think it starts with a blond American young teenage boy driving a (possibly a red sports car (I think it's his step-dads or something, he's using it without permission). I think he's racing towards a cliff edge in a desert, but I think he stops it just in time for him to leap out, but I think the car goes over the edge. I think during this drive a futuristic police man (that I think may be a robot, not human?) is following him on a hovering motorbike, and manages to stop him and maybe return him home. Thanks.

Chosen answer: This is the introduction of James T Kirk in the 2009 Star Trek movie.

Question: A sad movie in the 70s where a girl gets sick, doctors have to freeze and keep the girl till they find the cure. Her boyfriend engineer waits for her and gets very old.

Question: I don't know if this is a TV show or a movie, but I know that there is a kid who gets in trouble or similar, and has to become another kid's tutor. The tutor goes to the kids house and eventually gets together with the kid's sister, I think?

Question: I kind of remember watching this episode of what I believe was The Twilight Zone, and the episode was about a woman who started to find stuff in her home moved after she was gone, or not the way she left it. Then at the end she finds out someone was living in her house during the hours she was working or something, sharing the same house and did not know until then... It may be something else.

Question: Looking for the name of a movie. A middle aged man sits at table in bar holding forth with various customers and the bartender. He orders champagne, at one point a young man plays a piano and sings. It was like a play that was filmed; may have been black and white, but I'm not sure. There were a lot of profile shots of the man at the table. Thank you.

Question: What is the name of a movie (or serial) where the bad guys threaten Earth by cloning the sun. I recall stock footage of mobs of people fleeing in terror (presumably to jump into a body of water not yet boiling). Not to be confused with Republic serial where the bad guys were able to dim our sun and freeze the Earth. Any help much appreciated.

Question: What's a TV show that is about a girl who crashes her car or something and winds up in a small town and she has to stay there until she serves her sentence?

Chosen answer: There was a Hallmark Christmas movie like this... Christmas Parade.

Question: I remember an animated (I think) TV series about a guy and his sister who try and find their mother. The main enemy was a bald woman. It also was about flying ships and dogfights aplenty. The last thing I remember is that they join a group of people on what looks like an old 19th century ship. Can someone please tell me what this is called?

Question: There was a movie about an older man who had fallen in love with teenager. However, the girl doesn't love him back and he becomes so angry that he uses astral projection to torment her and kill her friends. The more the guy uses astral projection, the more hideous his appearance. The girl then turns to a teenage guy for help. The movie ends with her friend getting killed and his astral form killing the man. When she tells the police what happened, they don't believe her and place her under arrest for killing the man. Bridgette Nielsen had a cameo appearance in it as a librarian.

Chosen answer: I believe this is 976-EVIL 2: The Astral Factor.

Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie (possibly TV show) that aired in the 90s. It may have been a direct to TV affair. It possibly was a movie my parents rented and I only caught glimpses of. In it, a man's wife and son are in the final stages of moving out and leaving him. He jokingly jump scares the wife or something. The wife is scared and fed up with the man. We see them leave with their stuff in the car and he's looking at them leave, sad and lonely. Later, we see this man talking with another man in a cellar or basement. For whatever reason, the other man is killed by the father by having bugs crawl across his face - somehow. The father callously left the man to die. Anyone help me out on this? It's been bugging me most of my life, what the movie was and what was wrong with the dad.

Question: Need the name of a movie where the main actress looks like Kat Dennings. Her BF is in a band and proposes on stage, she says no, and they break up. She gets a new red haired boyfriend, she loses her cat at one time and he looks for it. She is a cartoonist. Draws random events that happened to her and her present/past boyfriend. In the end she has an art exhibit of her drawings. Her sister is getting married at some point and I think she (main actress) gets pregnant. I'm interested in searching for the drawings she did in the film.
