Question: I am not sure if this was from a movie or TV show and my memory is a little vague. There was a girl riding on her skateboard and a van pulls up and she gets abducted. Later, the girl is sitting in a chair and there is a man (villain, I'm guessing) and he is putting leads on her temples, like when they measure brain activity, and he licks her cheek to make it stick. It was kind of like he was trying to brainwash her or something. He also has women working for him, no sure if they are robots or something. That is pretty much all I've got and it's driving me crazy!
Question: I'm looking for the title of a movie that I've seen in the 80's. A young brainwashed adult woman leave her parents' house to go live in a sect with her boyfriend. At the end of the movie, her father is finally able to take her back home by using force (a kind of kidnapping). Another clue, somewhere during the movie everyone holds each other's hand and sing He's got the whole world in his hands. Thanks for your help.
Question: Don't know if this was a movie or TV show, but there is one scene that keeps going through my mind. A woman is forced into her best friend's apartment by a masked robber who tells the woman to give him everything valuable or her friend will die. The woman doesn't believe that she's being robbed but that it's just a practical joke that her friend is playing on her. She then takes the gun from the robber and puts it to her head thinking it's either a toy or that it isn't really loaded. The robber and the woman he is holding hostage are both shocked at this and they both try to tell the woman that it isn't a joke, but, the woman pulls the trigger anyway and kills herself.
Question: Looking for a TV show episode. A woman who was an informant in Iraq was killed. She was having an affair with her FBI handler. The guy responsible was interviewed early in the episode. He made a deal with the feds to escape prosecution, but was able to be prosecuted by the military because he was being treated for an injury at the VA.Greg Dwyer
Question: Looking for the name of a movie. A middle aged man sits at table in bar holding forth with various customers and the bartender. He orders champagne, at one point a young man plays a piano and sings. It was like a play that was filmed; may have been black and white, but I'm not sure. There were a lot of profile shots of the man at the table. Thank you.Guest
Question: What is the name of a movie (or serial) where the bad guys threaten Earth by cloning the sun. I recall stock footage of mobs of people fleeing in terror (presumably to jump into a body of water not yet boiling). Not to be confused with Republic serial where the bad guys were able to dim our sun and freeze the Earth. Any help much appreciated.
Question: I remember an animated (I think) TV series about a guy and his sister who try and find their mother. The main enemy was a bald woman. It also was about flying ships and dogfights aplenty. The last thing I remember is that they join a group of people on what looks like an old 19th century ship. Can someone please tell me what this is called?Dra9onBorn117
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie (possibly TV show) that aired in the 90s. It may have been a direct to TV affair. It possibly was a movie my parents rented and I only caught glimpses of. In it, a man's wife and son are in the final stages of moving out and leaving him. He jokingly jump scares the wife or something. The wife is scared and fed up with the man. We see them leave with their stuff in the car and he's looking at them leave, sad and lonely. Later, we see this man talking with another man in a cellar or basement. For whatever reason, the other man is killed by the father by having bugs crawl across his face - somehow. The father callously left the man to die. Anyone help me out on this? It's been bugging me most of my life, what the movie was and what was wrong with the dad.Supdude
Question: I've been trying to find this movie for months now, I don't know much because it was a while ago when I saw it, on TV, but it's about a girl who gets pregnant and her musician boyfriend leaves her. She ends up going to live I think with her family on a farm, and while she is there a guy shows up, and I think that she likes him. They draw her belly each month, and after she has the baby she starts running with her/her, and at the end of the movie she is on a rooftop with the guy - that's all I know!Emiir65
Question: I want to find title of a black and white British movie with the following plot: upper class Englishman visits a farm and meets a beautiful farm girl. Falls in love but then leaves and marries an upper class English woman but no children ensue. Later the Englishman returns to the village farm to see what happened to his earlier love, and finds that the girl has died but left a son. He meets the son but does not reveal that his is the father. This film was probably made in the 50s.
Question: I'm looking for a movie about a dark skinned lady who seems to have a mental illness and meets a girl online. That girl that she met sent her some photos of herself. Her said to be "brother" (he is actually the husband of the online girl) goes to the lady's home and wants to converse with her. The lady thinks he is a therapist and refuses to let him in. Eventually he gets inside. Later in the movie the lady handcuffs the man to her couch. She wants to get to know his "sister" and asks him questions. One of the questions is how his "sister" smells. He says she smells like rosemary. The "sister" ends up committing suicide by jumping in front of a train.
Question: I remember a film from when I was around 7-8 years old (I'm 19 now) and it involves a group of kids who go to a summer camp or something. There's one boy who isn't with them, but goes there and takes them all out of the camp one by one. There's also some sort of weird military guy who's the camp leader if I remember correctly. The only other part of the film I remember is the coach ride to the camp and all the kids sing that song "I know a song that'll get on your nerves." Please help!Josh Williams
