Question: Looking for a "time travel" movie in which the two main characters, a man and woman, communicate across time. He lives in "Aniston", while she lives in "Anne's Town." She can see the future through his eyes, but not vice versa. She is shocked/awed by seeing an airplane. Most likely a TV Movie and from the late 70s to early 80s. Thanks.
Question: I am looking for a movie from late 80s or 90s. America. There is a girl and two brothers (maybe step-brothers). The girl is in relationship with one of the brothers. Girl lives in big house (kinda wealthy). She cheats on her boyfriend with her boyfriend's brother. I can remember some scenes: girl is dancing sensually in bar; one of the brothers goes in jail and when the girl visits him, she says "I want you inside me right now"; hotel scene at the end where the boyfriend finds out that the girl is cheating on him with his brother - there is also shooting in this scene. There are very many sex scenes in this movie. In the storyline there was some issue with the girl's family and at the end it's revealed that the girl had a plan and she played a game, and the brothers were somehow part of it. I hope somebody recognizes the movie and knows the name. Thanks.

Question: There was a movie I saw one time. The movie was about a woman whose car had broken down. She is taken in by an old woman and her family. At first, everyone is nice to but when she joins the family for dinner, they don't approve of her dress as they deem it to provocative and ask her to remove her lipstick. Eventually, she realizes that the old woman's family intend to hold her hostage for the rest of her life. She tries to have one of the woman's relatives mail a letter for her but instead, he shows it to the old woman and she reacts by locking the woman in her room. The movie ends with her husband coming to the farm and rescuing her.
Question: I doubt anyone will know, but here goes; I watched a movie years ago and all I can remember is that it was about two female friends, one of the friends is sort of jealous and even possibly in love with the other one, who works in some kind of performing arts (stage actress?). They briefly live together, but then have a falling out. All I can remember is the ending; one of the women is in a car with her male partner and drives by the other woman who is walking alone through town, then the screen goes black. I think it might have been foreign (French?) and probably mid to late 90's. That's all I can remember, please help! I think it's set in the 1940s.
Question: This is from an early to mid-1970's movie. A woman in a sheer dress is walking along a beach with a green-colored man with green curly hair on a leash. She stops, removes her necklace that has a large diamond on it and gives it to the green man, who then walks out to a rock outcropping and looks at the sun through the diamond. Anybody have an idea as to what was the name of this film?Scott215
Question: I watched a movie years ago about some young brothers playing (1800's) and they take a little wealthy girl for fun. They are afraid to return her so they raise her as their sister. Years later, after some of her brothers die, she's told the truth about who she is and returns home. She looks exactly like the portrait on the wall of her mother. I can't remember any more.
Question: Thought the actor was Anthony Hopkins but cannot locate the movie. Wife thinks she's dying of cancer. They agree to jump off a cliff. He gets a message from the doctor saying it was all a mistake and she's not dying, but he doesn't tell her. She jumps off the cliff and he inherits lots of money. Last scene he is in big city exhibiting his art.Rosy Gott
Question: There was a movie I saw maybe in the 80's. It was about a boy who ends up with some pirates that travel to different planets. During the movie the captain's crew is getting killed by several enemies. The captain is seriously injured so the boy takes some tools to save the captain's life. The movie ends with the captain living and either leaving the kid on another planet or returning him to his home planet.
Question: I am searching for the name of an old comedy, I believe, possibly black and white I saw as a child. Part of the story centers around a woman trying to lure a man to marry her. To do so she refuses to take off her white gloves until he becomes so obsessed with what is beneath them he marries her.jackrabbit1313
Question: I'm trying to identify a movie I saw in the 1960s or 70s. A girl's mother is trying to make her think she's crazy. There's a scene where she sees her dead father's body in her playhouse and she runs away through the woods. A hand reaches out from leaves on the path and grabs her ankle. Freaked me out as a child and I'd like to see it again.lyleo
Question: I am after the name of a movie where a woman goes through a day trying to escape people after her. In the end it turns out the whole town has been acting to scare her. In the end she is tied to a chair and we find out she murdered a child and as punishment she receives an injection at the end of each day and when she wakes up she has to relive the same traumatic day again. I have searched everywhere for this movie.deniseward
Question: There was this film I watched a few years ago that isn't very well known. I do not know any of the actors in it, but it's about this new girl at this school who comes between two best friends. The new girl is obsessed with one of them, so she invites the other one to a fake party with them and when they get to a warehouse, she murders the girl so that her and the girl she's obsessed with can be best friends. Stabs her. The other girl who the killer is obsessed with wants to tell the dead girl's parents but she's being forced not to, so the dead girl's mother investigates and ins out herself. Does anyone know what this film is called?kira250
Question: Please help me remember the name of this movie. It is from the 1980s, possibly the early 1990s. A teenage girl, maybe college student, is following newspaper stories about a criminal and fantasizes about him. I am mostly sure that the girl is blonde. I remember a scene where she is in her house's kitchen. Her stepfather/mother's boyfriend makes romantic advances. There is an implication that he has sexually abused her, or that she willingly slept with him before, but regrets it.
