Question: Does anyone know what TV show this episode is from? It was a scary anthology/short story type of show. I saw it on TV a couple of years ago, but it was made in the '90s or possibly '80s. A woman visits her pregnant sister. The sister is either trapped or basically stuck in a room. The woman sleeps with the sister's husband/serious boyfriend. It turns out that he is a monster. I think he had insect-like qualities, but I am not certain.
Question: This is something I watched as a child so my recollection of it is incredibly vague. I believe it was 80s or early 90s movie. Main character is a girl with thick glasses. I remember a scene where she puts her face into a mask looking thing on the wall and it gave her instant makeup. Then, I think, she ended up going to an underground city or something.
Question: I am trying to identify a movie that I saw a part of as a child. I only saw the ending, and this was back in the 90's when I saw it. It was at least a late 80's to early 90's film and I saw it on TV at my grandmother's house. But I only remember once part. That there were two cars racing down a street, but towards each other for some reason. And there was some distance between them as there was not direct line of sight, but they went over hills and around corners. All I can remember is one car was like a purple Lamborghini or such. Or it might have been black. It's hard to remember. But as they two cars drew near to each other, it would cut back and forth to the other driver's face, and then his point of view. And for some reason before the cards met, the point of view of the other driver was seeing the Lamborghini as a man and not a car. Just standing perfectly still but moving towards him in the street. But this man, to my memory was in a full classic diver outfit. Like the old time ones from Scooby Do cartoons where it's like a big metal bowl on the divers head with a window on the front. However he was all purple. And the other driver only saw this, but as they hit. It was a head on collision and both cars exploded. This is all I can remember, and it was 20 years ago so my memory of the exact details is probably off.Quantom X
Question: I only remember bits of the trailer for this 60's (??) British film. It's possibly an espionage or spy spoof that starts by showing a man running down a street wearing a black and white graduation cap and gown. A voice-over says (sic) "See this man? Very good. Carry on." He then is in a classroom with a bunch of beautiful college-aged schoolgirls/students. He asks a question to the class and then, after they answer, he exclaims, "Right, my children!" He then asks one beauty a personal question to which she replies (in letters) the man's name, which spells out on the screen and is (I think) also the name of the film. Any help here?CCARNI
Question: I'm trying to remember where I have seen the following scene in a cartoon as a young child in the early 70s... the scene is an animal (either large cat or bear or something) captures a tiny baby fish in the water and the fish cries out "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" and then the big father fish attacks or destroys the large animal, freeing his son. Anyone know what cartoon this was from?
Question: This is a TV movie from the early or mid seventies. A lady is in a sculptor's loft with several disassembled statues. A head of a statue sitting on a table starts speaking, saying to her, "you killed me, Rachel, you killed me!" She screams, picks up the head and smashes it on the floor. Anybody have an idea what the name of this movie was or who was in it?Scott215
Question: There was a movie that had Jerry Lewis and some other guy but I can't remember his name. In the movie, the guy is a famous performer who isn't getting many people to attend his show. Jerry plays a guy who is the man's biggest fan and during one of the guys shows, Jerry appears on stage and starts doing things that make the audience laugh such as wearing girls clothes and giving the man a flower. They prove to be such a hit together that they start performing and become celebrities. The guy falls in love with a woman and eventually gets angry at Jerry causing Jerry to leave. When the guy tries to get a show done, it doesn't go so well but Jerry reappears and helps the guy and the guy makes amends with Jerry.
Question: In the 80's I saw on TV a movie/TV show. A boy and an older man are sitting on a boat. The boy sees numbers tattooed on the man's arm and says "I thought you said we weren't allowed to get tattoos?" The man answers that he got it in the concentration camp in the holocaust. Any idea what this is from?bomboler
Question: Trying to think of the movie where this Giant troll thing is helping this girl. He scoops up some water in a seashell and offers it to her but she refuses. And then he screams "DRINK!" The scene looks like it's in the woods. There's a small pool and small waterfall. The troll scoops the water out of it. Might be enchanted water or some kind of super healing water. Also I think the troll took her to that location while she was unconscious and she woke up lying near that pool.
Question: There is a common trend I have noticed time and time again regarding many of Pixar's film releases. This is that many of Pixar's summer released movies, when they are given a release date for the US, they are given a release date somewhere in the middle of June. However, when they are given a release date for the UK, they are given a release date at some point in July, possibly a month or over a month after release in the US. For example, Toy Story 3 was given a June 18, 2010 release in the US, but took until July 19 to be released in the UK. Cars 2 was given a June 24, 2011 release in the US, but took until July 22 for the UK release. This trend for release dates has been continued with Brave, Monsters University, Inside Out, Finding Dory and Cars 3, but why exactly is this? Why exactly does it take about a month after the US release for Pixar's movies to be released in the UK?Harris
Question: I have a memory of one great movie I really liked when I was a kid (during the 90s). Unfortunately, I have never again bumped into it, so till this day I have now idea what film was it. I don't remember much of it; I would say it was filmed during the 70s or 80s, but don't know for sure. I think it was kind of those rockabilly movies, there were some cars and some dancing involved. The main character is a young man, I even think he is an outsider and gets in conflict with some popular clique. I remember that one girl gets her hair on fire (no idea how). Anyway, what I do remember are bloopers after the end. It was the first time I saw bloopers and I'm guessing that is why I liked the movie so much. The scene I particularly remember from bloopers is when the main character is sitting on the car hood holding pack of cigarettes. He takes one cigarette and throws it in the air, toward his mouth, and is supposed to catch it with his lips. But he fails. And fails again. And again. Finally, he manages to do that, so he takes a lighter from the pockets and tries to light it, but it doesn't work. He smiles and says something like: "It's hard to be cool." So, if anyone has an idea what movie is that, I would really appreciate the information. Thank you! P.S. It is not Footloose, Crybaby, Cannonball Run, Smokey and the Bandit.
Question: I remember watching a movie in the end where a woman framed a public official who cheated on his wife with several women for murdering a former friend who used to blackmail her, or something like that. There was a guy who knew about it and then asked what she would do for him to keep him quiet. She stabbed him to death and framed him as the murderer while a neighbor looked on through a window. Thanks.
Question: Movie I'm looking for is a movie about a female cop who gets suspended because a robber's gun was stolen by a guy in the store after she killed him. He then begins killing people and coincidentally runs into her and begins a romance. When she finds out about him committing the murders with the robber's gun, she is unable to prove it and he kills her friend, cop friend, and rapes her.
