Question: There is a Mary Chapin Carpenter song called "10,000 miles" that was used in a movie, maybe as the theme song? It has been driving me nuts, as I keep hearing the song on a CD we have at the office and I can't place the movie. It is a very plaintive song that starts off "Fare thee well, my own true love."
Question: I remember either a TV series or a movie from at least 8 years ago, I remember an angel (I think this was the main focus of the series/movie) who was rather unorthodox, I remember her smoking, and some scene on a bus (when the angel had completed her task) where she disappears from the bus. Does anyone know what this is?
Question: I remember a futuristic TV-show from approximately 15 years ago. It was about a battle between the good guys and the bad guys and they all used some kind of light guns to fight each other. All of them wore some form of (plastic-looking) armour with one important weak spot: a glass-like orb, which if hit resulted in the character being completely disintegrated. The good guys never seemed to get hit, the bad guys always were but had clones of themselves to allow them to come back again and again. The battle was about either dimensions or planets and it basically came down on whose side managed to find and hit the key glass-like orbs of that dimension/planet with their light guns first. All of the main characters appeared to be teens/young adults, for as far as I can remember. Does anybody know what I'm talking about and can give me the name of this show?
Question: I'm looking for the name of a TV-show, which I saw about 15-20 years ago on IIRC a British channel. It was a futuristic puppet series in outer space, and there were three pilots in three mainly red ships who could combine into one big red Megazord-ish robot (one ship became the head, the second became arms plus torso and the third was the legs). The three ships belonged to one mothership which could lift its cockpit to fire a giant laser. I have no idea about plot or stories as I was too young to understand English back then and there were no subtitles. Does this sound familiar to anybody?
Question: What movie originally had the following quote in their advertising: "This time it's personal"?
Question: I am trying to remember the name of a TV show that was on in the early to mid 80's. It dealt with day-to-day life on a US Army post (Not Marines or Navy, I'm not thinking of Major Dad or JAG). It was set in the present day (present day for when it was on-the mid 80's), NOT Vietnam. I think the word "Honor" was part of the title, but I am not sure. Anyone? I seem to remember the closing credits focused on the flag pole in front of the HQ while the credits rolled.Grumpy Scot
Question: I am trying to find out the name of a cartoon that used to come on back in the 80's about a guy who had the powers of animals. I think he was a sheriff in the show and his rival was a old skeleton looking dude in all black. I think it took place like in the desert although I could be wrong about that but his power as far as I can remember came from a bear, a hawk, and I think a cheetah or something?Rollin Garcia Jr
Question: If you ever aim a video camera at a TV screen or a computer monitor, you can easily notice how the screen is refreshing itself. But in almost any show or movie I watch, you don't see this effect. My question is: how are TVs/monitors filmed so that the refresh rates don't show up?
Question: I saw a movie on TV a few years ago and I didn't catch the title. There were kids living with a grandmother who didn't like them. There was an uncle living in the basement and an aunt that may have been mentally disabled. The uncle had a tunnel that led outside. I think it took place during a world war. Does any of this ring a bell?
Question: Quite a few years ago I watched a movie about a young girl who was called to be a nun. While she was a novice she met a man and fell in love with him. After he left, she left the convent in search of him. While she searched him out she met up with other men who all died before she could get too close. While this young girl was searching, the statue of the madonna disappeared and the town was going through a drought. I have no idea what the name of this movie. Does anyone know what movie I am talking about?
Question: I saw an indie movie about ten years ago which featured two young boys, one of whom I think was called Francis, and it dealt with their fears about nuclear war. A central theme was that after the bomb went off, people turned into pigs. I thought the movie was called Francis, but I can't seem to find anything that matches this description. Does anyone remember this movie?
Question: I used to watch a reality show that took place in a castle. Couples competed against each other to win the chance to retrieve gold for a chamber; however, after a certain amount of time had passed, tigers came out. The couple had to get out before the gates closed or they would be trapped with the tiger. What was the show?
Question: I am trying to remember a film I saw on Sky 1 a few years ago. It dealt with a cop or ex-cop or somebody of that sort, and an evil guy with a very bad blonde mullet. The only scenes I remember are as follows: there is a small blonde girl standing over a well with a barb wire crank running across it, and the evil guy tells the girl to hold the wire and she her hand starts to bleed as one of his minions cranks the wire; then she looks into the camera; the other is where the guy, he has dark short hair and is crucified on something. He is bloody throughout most of the movie, but for the life of me I can't remember its name.
