I'm looking for the title of a heist movie. I don't have a specific time frame of when it was made, but I do remember that I watched it somewhere between 2001 and 2005 on DVD. It had a (subtle) sex scene in it which took place in a sauna, and I think it ended with the main character putting someone on a weight bomb in a white van, and after that he got out via a secret hatch in the bottom, parked over a sewer.Friso94
I am looking for a movie that played on the scifi channel between 2002-2004 aired very late at night. I caught the last 15 minutes which showed two men fighting in an old west looking indian fort. The men stabbed and beat each other repeatedly and one had a small sickle stuck in him during the fighting. The film ended when the 2 men wrestled each other and rolled into a bear trap which killed them both, then some people rode to the fort, opened the room the men were in, looked at them, and then closed the door. The credits rolled then. Last thing that might help, no one said a word during the entire last 15 minutes as I remember.
I'm after the title of a cartoon. I remember watching a cartoon when I was young i.e. in the late 90s (animated film) that had hillbilly style animals that would play bluegrass music. I remember the grass actually being blue in the cartoon. I remember one scene where the 'good character' was versus the 'evil character' in a musician's competition and the evil character was playing so hard that the guitar smoked and blew up. Another scene was when the good character was being told to keep on practising and he would get better at playing his banjo. This sounds really vague, I know, but any help would be appreciated.
I can't remember the name of this movie - maybe it is a kid's movie. But the father of this family creates a white teddy bear that every kid loves. I think the teddy bear would say "i love you" or something. Then, this nice teddy bear get mass distributed across the country. The very first bear that the father made is actually completely evil and wants to take over the world or something by controlling all the teddy bears. The teddy bear get red eyes when he's evil. What movie is this?
I am looking for a foreign film about a woman who lets a stranger who is also a woman live with her while her husband went off to war, I believe. I just remember at the end of the film the stranger kills the woman and takes her child. The husband comes back from war to find his wife dead in a tent outside of there home. The movie ends with the stranger woman on a boat with the child. I would like to know the name of this film.lismcy
I watched this movie a long time ago about these young kids and they all went out on a boat on the lake for this boy's birthday. The boy couldn't swim and got knocked off the boat and he drowned and died. The teens took the body and went to bury it - they all swore they wouldn't tell, but then they got guilty and told the cops.
I'm trying to remember the name of a movie from the late 70s that I saw while I was in a Children's hospital here in Nova Scotia, Canada back in 1978. I believe it was a TV Movie, probably on CBC or CTV. It was about a white cobweb or some sort of white substance that spread and no one could touch it or they would get sick or hurt. I believe the setting was a cabin in the woods type setting(centered around a family), with a lake, canoes.etc. I remember there is a point in the movie where they think they have gotten rid of the white substance but then it comes back as part of the anti-climax of the movie. It haunts me to this day. Would really love to find out what it was called.
This is a movie I saw in the 90's - I can't remember its name but it was about a little girl who can't talk and uses sign language. I remember a scene where she was sitting in the garden with her nanny or teacher, I think learning the word love in sign language, and wrote it on her hand.Talhaqari
I don't know if it's a show or a movie but there's a scene where a boy and a girl are at the movies and the girl is really into the movie. She keeps reaching in the bag of popcorn which is on the boy's lap. The boy then proceeds to dump the popcorn so the girl can touch his penis. The bag has red and white vertical stripes.Lobos88
I'm looking for the title of an classic animation movie about people living in a space consisting only of clouds, with no gravity, and the people travel using aircraft. The story is about a young boy who got trained to be a soldier, wearing a glider suit to movie about the clouds, and then later on met a professor and helped him build a jet engine which he used to power a jet plane to fight against a giant robotic monster that was apparently also a creation of the professor. The story is a little blurry, but that's all the information I have.
I am looking for the title of a movie about a divorced father with a teenage daughter who live in a apartment, and the father has a female neighbor he doesn't get along with at all. They often had arguments, and she wants him to move out of the apartment. One day the father got an invitation from his ex wife to attend her wedding - she was getting remarried and asked if he would bring someone with him or not, he then said that he would bring someone just to let his ex wife think he moved on. He spent days calling women to see if he could get a date to go to the wedding with, just to impress his ex wife, but all the women he called rejected him, leaving him the final choice to ask his female neighbor. At first she didn't want to, but later she told him she would do it if he agreed to the terms to move out of the apartment. He agreed and she even had him sign a agreement contract...and I don't know the rest! Please answer if you know, thank you.
I saw a short animated film back in the 80's shown at an animation film festival. About 2-3 minutes long. Basically simple pen & ink with almost no color. A drawing of a muscular man, chained to a concrete slab, who is dragging it through a desert for some unknown reason (to reach a destination to be freed of it?) and all the while he is tormented by a creature (ghost? goblin? spirit?) riding on that slab who tries to give him words of encouragement, but is way too happy to do the man any good. The end of the film shows that the man dragging the slab is, in fact, going around in a perpetual figure-8. Any idea what this short animated film is called and where I can see it again? YouTube?CCARNI
I only remember bits of the trailer for this British film of the 60's or 70's (?). It's an espionage or a possible spy spoof that starts by showing a man running down a street wearing a formal British teacher's robes (like "Mr. Chip's"). A voice-over says, "See this man? Very good. Carry on." He is then in a classroom with all beautiful college-age girl students. He asks a question to the class and then, after they answer, he exclaims, "Right, my children!" He then asks one girl a question up close, to which she replies the teacher's name, which spells out on the screen, AND is also the name of the film. Any help here?
I'm looking for the title of a very old Asian film. At the beginning, a man was running from a mob who shot him on a dead end alley. The movie resumed with a young man looking for his kidnapped blind sister. He eventually finds her within the kidnappers' fortress where she was instantly shot by machine gun. Toward the end of the movie, the hero and villain fell off a cliff where the hero inserts a diamond in the villain's eye.srknightjohn
I saw a movie when I was little, but I can't find out what movie it was. I think it was made in the 1990, based on a true story. There's a girl that's a little crazy and has a control issue, and another girl gets in trouble with her. The other girl likes to paint, and in the middle of the movie she is really afraid that the first girl is going to kill her, and she paints her own grave, believing she's going to die. But at the end she believes it's all over and paints over her grave, but sadly she dies at the end (killed by the other girl). The only thing I really remember of the other girl was that before, nobody noticed her, but then she changed - she had brown eyes before but used lenses to be blue-eyed.miamia
I'm trying to find the name of a movie I saw in the 90's, about this drifter who's a musician and goes to a bar where a fight ensues. The musician starts playing guitar and he stops the fight as everybody is having a good time, and ends up working for the bar owner. He starts having an affair with the owner's wife, eventually plotting with her to kill the owner. They become the bar's owners, but the woman starts plotting against the musician.Samael77
I am looking for the name of a movie made in the 70s or early 80s, I believe set in Italy, in which, at the end, a woman's lover boards a plane after kissing her goodbye, and as the plane takes off it blows up due to a bomb which she placed in his luggage. I believe the song "All by Myself" played over the closing credits.
