I saw part of this movie on TV about a year ago and I can't find it anymore. Set in the future, these scientists had an alien that was red headed and looked like a human in a glass container. She escaped it and climbed out of a window. She was very high up, she jumped off, and she landed on a flying taxi cab that I think was being driven by Adam Sandler. She didn't speak English, but saw a sign that said "Please Help" so she said "Please help" in poor English to the taxi driver. He was then chased by the cops in flying police cars, and when he and the alien escaped, he brought the alien to his house. That's all I remember of it. I don't remember the year it was made, but judging by the special effects it had to be made sometime this decade or maybe late 90's.
I can only remember one scene from a movie. People are fleeing to get onto airplanes when it shows a man and a woman. The man says that everything unnecessary must be left behind to make room - there's a pile of purses, books etc. The woman asks if she can take a picture of her parents, and the man agrees. Then there's a shot of people in the airplane watching something blow up on the earth below. For some reason I mentally associate this with Power Rangers, but that might not mean anything.
Why do a lot of new movies/TV shows have exclusive content that is only on the Blu Ray disc versions? Don't the movie creators still make money if you choose to buy the DVD?
The only scene my sister and I remember (from what we think was a film) shows a girl walking through the woods. There's a pond, with (I think) lots of water lilies floating on it. A small submarine rises from the pond, and the girl gets in, then it submerges in the pond, which although small from the outside is extremely deep under the surface. No one else remembers this film and we think we may have made it up, but it is very vivid in our memories. I think it was dubbed, as it may have been Dutch or something, and probably made in the early 70s perhaps. We've been trying to remember for years. Please help us, thanks.
I am looking for the title of a movie in which a guy goes around killing people and takes a piece of them (arm, leg, head, etc). Eventually the police find out where he's been hiding and why he was taking the body parts (at the home of the first murder, and to "recreate" the body Jesus). Thanks for the help.
I am looking for a documentary about volcanoes that was made no later than 1997. I thought it was by National Geographic but I can't find it on their website (I have watched their film Volcano: Nature's Inferno, and it is not the one I'm looking for). All I can remember about this film is that it included the song "Hot hot hot", possibly as the opening music, and at least part of the movie was about volcanologists Maurice and Katia Kraft. It talks about how they eventually died in a volcanic eruption (ironic, I know). Can anyone tell me the title of this documentary?
I would like to know the title of a movie, probably from the 70s or early 80s, in which a car crashes into a tanker truck and becomes covered in a molten cheese-like substance. There may also have been a scene with a room full of balloons. Thanks for the help.
Would like to know the title of a comedy, probably from the 90s or early 00s, in which a cop asks for a blond Asian woman. Thanks for any help.
I've seen a movie if I remember right it was in the late 90's, very strange, all I can remember is that a woman is getting a pizza delivered and she starts hallucinating or something, the pizza starts talking and she goes crazy putting it in the sink grinder, dark ambiance, I was younger and it scared the crap out of me.
I don't remember much about this movie, but in one scene there is a group of about four people who enter a building and talk to some guy, who then opens a trapdoor under them. The people fall onto some roller coaster, which dumps them onto a conveyor belt, that feeds them into a machine that grinds them up and spits out their bones. I think the protagonist may later enter the machine himself and somehow escape it. There also may be a scene later in the movie with a lot of fire, but I don't know for sure. Can anyone help me with the title of this movie?
I only saw a few minutes of this movie on TV once. It's probably in the sci-fi genre. There was a high school or college-age boy with very white skin and red lips, and I think he was bald. I saw a scene where he was in a classroom and the other students started making fun of him. Thanks if you can make a guess.
I remember watching a movie on TV in the 50's or 60's, I think it was in black and white. There was a young woman throughout the movie keeps in a sing-song manner mumbling what seems to be gibberish rhyming. But it turns out she is giving clues such as something like 'on door knob is, in drawer key is'. Hopefully someone knows the name of this movie?
I am looking for an American commercial advertisement (I 'think' it was for a car or something in the 1990s perhaps) that features a man standing in front of a chalkboard, his right hand is solving a complex mathematical problem, while his left hand is simultaneously drawing a beautiful work of art. I am haunted and tormented by my failure to find this epic work. I would be most grateful to anyone who can help stop my pain.
A few years ago, I watched a movie on TV about a girl who has been teased in high school, by one popular guy and especially his girlfriend. About 10 years later, the girl has a great job, and the popular guy, who now owns a restaurant, needs her help (promoting it?) only he doesn't recognize her. She decides to make him fall in love with her and then break his heart, like he did with her. Only she herself falls in love with him too. Does anyone knows the title of this movie, or who plays in it?
What is the movie where a cop gets shot in the face and then has to put eye drops in for the remainder of the movie?
I am trying to find the name of a TV movie that I saw back in the 80's. It featured Ken Berry and Sean Marshall (who starred in Pete's Dragon). In the film, Ken's character sees Sean fishing on a beach and they strike up a friendship. Sean lives with his brother and divorced mum who works in a bank. Ken eventually becomes close to the family. At the end whilst in the bank, Sean's little brother dares him to step into the open safe and as a joke promptly closes it, locking him in. They are told that the safe is on a timelock and can't be reopened until the next morning. With no other option, Ken Berry attempts to open it with some tools and is successful. I remember that Max Showalter played the bank manager. I have been unable to find anything on IMDB that links all 3 actors but I know that the film exists. Has anyone else seen this film and knows which one I am talking about?
Can anyone tell me the title of a fantasy/sci fi TV movie that aired on Nickelodeon at least once in the late 1990s with a plot involving a brother and sister in a ravaged ghetto like city full of corruption where they lived with their grandfather. People there are taken for bizarre mind experiments all the time, so the grandfather send them on a journey through a desert to find some utopia like haven. The grandfather can't go because of his failing health. The brother and sister set off, all the while being chased by the evil authorities. Along the way, they pick up a few friends, including a couple younger boys, a teen-aged desert drifter, a big bald guy, and a girl from the city who lost her boyfriend to the evil mind experiments. After escaping capture at least once, they make their way through a maze filled with poison gas and find a beautiful safe haven on a beach to live happily ever after. Last image being a grave stone/monument on the beach engraved with the grandfather's name. Do you know the title? Thank you.
I'm looking for a film I heard about in drama class in high school. It takes place on a steamboat or river paddle boat. The main character is a woman that sings on the boat, but is kicked off for being half black. If this sounds familiar please please please let me know! Thanks.
