British movie, NOT Bedknobs and Broomsticks [Jun. 8th, 2017|10:23 pm]
What was that film?

So my roommate, who is not on LJ, needs help remembering a movie. We don't know how to Google it. Here is the description:

British movie 1980's to 90's. Color.
It is about 2( 1?) boys some maybe kidnappers, the occult, a creepy 1940's black vintage flying car that has metal wings that pop out. It is like a rolls royce style car. takes place in England. There is a running and hiding scene in the English country side.
There is a metal bed that also flys or time travels/ teleports
there I think is a room with a masnoic (her misspelling, probably "masonic") occult looking stone at one point. Some of the adults have magic ?
It was a very dull rainy shot movie. (as in "shot darkly / shot in dark lighting")
At one point the magic bed is in the woods.
At the begining the boy or boys are kidnapped. by a man in a 3 piece suit and bowler hat and a creepy lady in black clothes.

I could be mixing up/ combining a few movies? not sure
This was on cable TV in Virginia in the late 80's - early 90s. like 86-93 ish? Possibly on Showtime or PBS?


Despite the reference to a flying bed, she insists it's not Bedknobs and Broomsticks, that it wasn't a Disney movie but a British movie.

Anyone have any idea?

80s/90s for Children [Oct. 31st, 2016|06:23 am]
What was that film?

I have no idea what this was, but it has been bugging me lately and is one of the few things from my childhood I can not identify.

I'm pretty sure this was short, probably aired on TV and recorded (but could have been rented).

It featured a young man. He started out in the kitchen, but the kitchen gradually turned into a jungle. Could still see like the refrigerator, but it was covered in vines. He sang to various animals, who were puppets, like monkeys and birds.

I think the guy wore a safari outfit - tan colored with a hat.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I was born in 1982, and probably watched it late 80s to early 90s, but don't know if it was a reair or not.

TV show or movie... [Aug. 8th, 2016|06:51 pm]
What was that film?
Hi all,
I read a plot for either a movie or a TV show and I am hoping someone can help me find out what it is...

From what I can remember - A big firm hires a lawyer to represent a client who they have set up and want found guilty but as they lawyer goes along she/he is thinking the client isn't guilty and wants to help the client.

Can't remember much else.

Thanks heaps in advance for any help.

A 90s thing about a witch [Jul. 12th, 2016|07:03 pm]
What was that film?

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

Hi all, I'm currently trying to find what I think was a made-for-tv movie for young adults from the early 90s.
All I can remember is it was set in an English town on the coast. The young girl protagonist was a bit of a loner (I think she was bullied) and she was fascinated by a stone statue which was said to have been the statue of a local woman who was a known witch.

Not much to go on I know, but I think it aired on the children's channel Nickelodeon in the 90s.

Film with a woman used as cast with molten metal poured while she's still inside the mold! [Jul. 9th, 2016|04:22 pm]
What was that film?

The film I am looking for is about a sculptor that kidnaps women and uses them as base for his sculture but he locks them up inside the mold before pouring molten metal in it with the woman still inside (!). The scene at the beginning is a shot of a woman's eye, closed at first and then suddenly opening, peering out of the pouring hole. Then you see the melting pot come and pour the liquid metal in the mould. Then, the opening credits start with bronze statues of women standing along the text... The film is quite old maybe 50s or 60s? I didn't watch it back then and only saw the beginning so I don't know how the story goes, I only remember a few scenes at the beginning. I would gratefully receive your suggestions and any pointer as to what the title is.

Jurassic Park? [Jun. 28th, 2016|10:10 pm]
What was that film?

Okay, this is strange. I loved the JP movies when I was a kid, and I am working on rewatching them all. Watched the original, then Lost World, and am currently watching JP3...but there is a scene that both my Mom and I remember that we haven't come across yet (unless it is somehow at the end of JP3).

But I thought the film started out with the Dinosaur eggs hatching, and the baby dinos are kept around and raised by a family, or the lab people or...something?

Do I have my movies mixed up? Not that I gave you guys much to go on lol.

Documentary style movie with geeks arguing vigorously [May. 31st, 2016|07:38 pm]
What was that film?

from what i remember it was a whole bunch of geeks or scifi fans sitting around a large round/oval table arguing about scifi, specifically about Star Wars and the Star Wars legacy. Made after the prequels at a point where the first 6 films exist.

i remember the arguments getting more and more heated as the movie wore on.
Noone was in costume, just regular clothes.

can anyone remember what this is?

thanks in advance

HELP [Jan. 30th, 2016|08:07 am]
What was that film?
I have tried for over a decade to identify this movie with no luck. I don't know anything significant like actors or such i only recall a few scenes since i didn't see it in full length.

There was a male and female lead and first i saw they were at some fancy get together like a dinner party, very first class.

Next came a sex scene, nothing special.

Then another get together nearly identical to the first but the woman got upset with the man and made a scene by telling at him and last thing i remember was they were taking a subway train together and she apologized to him. I wanted to go back and give this film proper attention. I know it's practically nothing too go on but i would appreciate all help. Even if i get 50+ suggestions i will tenaciously check each one.

Found a movie here but now it's gone? [Jan. 9th, 2016|12:34 am]
What was that film?

[Tags|, ]

Someone else originally asked for this, and I saved their post so I could look it up myself, but now the post has been deleted and I can't remember what it was called?

It was something about a "live" news broadcast about something, might have been something space related (meteor/asteroid/?) and it ran like a news session and then it stopped like some disaster had happened?

I really want to know what it was *headdesk*

Any suggestions are welcome?

SOLVED! It was Without Warning.

Gelfling-like Creature Guy [Dec. 5th, 2015|07:42 pm]
What was that film?
Hello guys. My name is Jessie and I hope this community might help me to find that movie. I think it's either late 1980's or early 1990's, but it's probably PG or PG-13 rated. It's a movie or TV film, so I'm not sure which it is.

I only remember a little about that movie as a child. I remember the creature looked like a sort of human being but he reminded me of Gelfings who are from The Dark Crystal. He can talk like what humans do, and he did wear clothes. Maybe, it's plain and strange clothes, but the setting started in Modern time (1990's/1980's). He had blonde/brown (maybe tawny) hair and had a sort of light brown fur. I think his color eyes are black or brown, so it's about 3'5" to 4" height (or maybe shorter). He can dig in anywhere under the ground, so I remember he dug toward to police station (or some office business building?) to find a jail cell room. I don't remember why he was after to who or whom.

Also, I remember a police/agent man studied the naked creature boy in the office for something, but I'm deaf and those kids would complaint about closed caption "distraction" at my old babysitter's house. So, I had no clue what they said... Anyways, a woman (maybe an assistant officer) came in and looked at that creature, and she was confused. The police/agent guy said something, then she seemed to say, "Oh, my apology!" She left the room. But, I definitely remember the creature boy did wear clothes the most of time, anyways.

After that scene, I don't remember the rest of that movie, but I really want to watch that again. It'd been long time ago. Do anybody here remember that movie? I had searched for a few weeks, so I would be appreciate your help if you know what it is! Thanks for reading! =)

-- Jessie

EDIT: I forget to add something information. The creature was a puppet doll like what handlers did with The Dark Crystal, but I don't know if there was some done by 3D graphic or animatronic something.

UPDATED: I now remember that the creature boy who seemed to hate flash lights. I don't remember why he was captured or arrested by polices. A woman tried to take a mugshot picture of that creature guy, she told him to stand still. But, each time, she clicked a picture, he dodged a flash light. She got so frustrated with him, so it ended up to have double mugshots of the creature's only side face.
