I'm looking for a film from the 50s or early 60s, Hollywood - a mother, father and daughter go on a cruise, the daughter has an affair and ends up pregnant. The family all go to live in South America during the pregnancy and then the mother claims the baby as her own (i.e., the real mother pretends she is the sister).
I am looking for a film from possibly the late 80s, that somehow involves rich kids and horses and high school kids trying to sneak into college dorms. The film wraps up with a young couple who have been trying to be intimate with each other getting a fancy hotel room and trying to make the moment perfect, but consequently the girl gets food poisoning or the flu which botches their big plans. Right before the credits roll she finds him sulking on the shoreline outside the hotel and they sleep together there. Does this ring any bells?
A few years back me and my dad were in a motel flipping through the channels. We came across a movie staring Bruce Willis. For whatever reason, we didn't watch much of it and went to something else, but it has always stuck out in my mind and I'd like to find it. The scene shown had Bruce Willis and Jack Black in it. To sight his gun, Bruce had Jack hold out a cigarette pack so he could shoot it. He shot off Jack Black's arm, and then killed him. What movie is this?Quantom X
I'm trying to find a film I saw years ago, maybe late 90's early 2000's but can't be sure. It's a British film of a brother and sister who live with their father in the countryside, The father has become/is angry and abusive. The brother has developed feelings for his sister and attacks and kills the father when he tries to rape the sister. The only scene I remember is at the end, when the brother and sister are hiding and begin to kiss. I remember it pulling no punches.
I'm looking for the name of a movie that I saw on HBO in the late 80s or early 90s. It was a western movie with a teenage or young adult girl who runs away with a group of men on horseback for adventure. I want to say the name of her horse was something like Honeybelle and the title of the movie may have been "The Adventures of..." Any suggestions?
Hi, I watched a movie in the 90's (I think) which had young characters seeking to adopt a child, but the investigator came at the same time as either a drug deal gone bad or maybe a home invasion. This was a dark-ish comedy with the young male character moving and hiding a body and other things happening along the same lines, and at the end they decide to forget it or just go on vacation or move. I'm not really doing justice to the movie as it was pretty good. So if anyone could help me with this vague question it would be appreciated. My last question here was answered spot on, so you guys are good at helping out, and thanks for that help.barsoon
What is the movie where there was a kid having a birthday party and they live in the middle of nowhere, but these bad guys come and take them hostage and one of the boys saves the day? Unfortunately those are all the details I can remember. It is from around the late 80's or sometime in the 90's.Jennduhon
This is a movie I saw a couple years ago; I believe it was a Lifetime movie. I don't remember much. All I can recall was a baby crying in a high chair, kicking her black shoes, and the lady got frustrated and killed the baby. Then I remember her going to court. And at the end it was a big truck digging up dirt looking for the baby's body.
I have been searching for this movie for a few years. I believe it was made in the mid 2000's. All I remember is there is a pre-teen girl and boy. I think they have a relationship that their families disapprove of. You find out later the reason the family doesn't want them together is because the mother of one kid had an affair with the father of the other. The parents died in a trailer explosion that the kids witnessed. It is an indie movie. Any help would be much appreciated.
I want to know the title of this movie that I've watched sometime in year 2004 but I think this movie is from 90's. The scene that I remembered is that the girl is been kidnapped and raped. The kidnapper rapes the victim while in front of a camera that has a live-stream to the internet so that the kidnapper will earn money from it. Lastly, on the last part the girl was able to escape using the kidnappers' car.erasmus17
How does Blu-ray conversion better the quality of old movies? The "Film Foundation" or whatever they are called is going back and restoring countless old movies like The Red Shoes to DVD and Blu-Ray. And they keep saying that the Blu-Ray makes it better than ever and clearer. How is that? The original film was the original format. So how can changing the format better something that was in a lesser form originally?Quantom X
I am trying to identify a film. It's an animated film in Japanese or Chinese. The art style reminds me of Ghibli or Miyazaki. There's a girl standing on a bridge (next to another girl?) and she's looking down at some school-age boys her age playing in the water. They motion for her to come in, and she looks like she's going to jump in but then decides not to. Later there's a scene where that same girl (or another girl) takes shelter at what looks like an abandoned shrine in the woods (it might be raining). She hears some voices, and two spirits reminiscent of the ones in Spirited Away materialize next to her. Another spirit wearing a hoodie/cloak jumps onto her lap, and the girl screams and runs away.conquer987
Old Maid movie - I watched this movie about ten years ago. I think it's based around 1900 - 1970. It starts in a school where they are writing with quills and the main character gets bullied. Later on after the girl leaves school she works as a maid in a large house. Her job goes well here until the bully gets a job there and frames the girl for stealing a coin she found while cleaning. The girl gets a job at a factory and later on the bully does does too, though she acts nicer. Later on the girl marries a rich man and has children. Later on the girl and her children encounter the beggar whom the girl ignores. One of the girl's daughters runs in front of a horse and cart and is saved by the beggar/bully. Both characters are female. I appreciate any help. Thank you.
