Movie about a guy who can’t see his girlfriend

I saw it somewhere between 15-20 years ago. On tv it was color and seemed modern for the time. (So maybe 90ish setting and release)

From what I remember of the plot there was a guy and a girl who liked each other but for some reason weren’t allowed to be together. I think her father had placed a restraining order on him or something. I believe the guy was under house arrest.

I remember 2 scenes. One was the girls father and his friend checking the mattresses with a black light to prove that the couple had had sex again.

And the guy getting his mail and having a bunch of fan letter type mail and one was an envelope full of photos of a girl undressing herself. ( I kinda remember someone walking in on him looking through the photos and him dropping them)

Gay Asian Film with Bathtub Scene

I remember very little about the movie but I’m sure I will have no trouble recognising it if someone can find out what movie this is.
There are two main things I remember:
  1. There is a scene in the movie where the two young asian lads are in the bathroom. One is in the bathtub. The other one slipping and falling causes some kind of sci-fi phenomenon to occur that moves the plot along (time travel? alternate worlds? that kind of thing, I think- or maybe not as drastic as those). The film isn’t very sci-fi-esque but I do believe it had some kind of magic/sci-fi aspects mostly somehow to do with that bathtub scene where one of the lads slips. I do believe we see that scene somehow more than once- I think twice, (which is why I’m thinking it might be time travel).
  2. (I hope I’m not confusing this second one with another film…) The movie opens with voice over narration from one of the two main characters- I think with just a pictures of a sofa against a wall (? not confident about this one- but definitely we’re not just looking at a blank screen while the opening narration is being heard).
If I think of more details I will post them, otherwise that’s all I can remember for now.
And to reiterate I do believe this film is a gay-themed (romance?) Asian (asian characters, asian language) film probably from 2007-2014?

personal assistant in an egg

This is a modern movie and rich people can buy this egg with a personal assistant. It’s an actual person in it (or a person’s mind). I believe it can even operate a toaster. I believe later in the movie, a person (or its mind) can be transferred to such an egg. As a punishment, they increase the speed of time inside that egg to make the person inside the egg bored to death so to speak.

Lake / Sea Creature Movie

When I was a kid, I saw a movie at our local library about a lake creature, possibly a dinosaur, that was trapped on one side of a dam.  The creature would follow the lights of the boats at night.  A teenaged boy figures out the creature is trying to get to the other side of the dam and helps it get there.

After the creature gets to the other side of the dam, we find out it’s mate was on that side.

I would have watched this movie in the 1980s or early 1990s.  It was in color and in English.

Thanks for your help!

’50s movie husband of famous theatre actress accused of murder, culprit is friend living in flat below

Hi I am looking for a movie, likely ’50s, in which two couples live in to very posh flats one above the other. The two couples are friend and the lady of the flat above is a famous theatre actress while the man living in the one below is her manager (?).
The husband of the actress is accused of murder and all evidence points to him but the real culprit is the other man, who had a relationship with the victim. Very elegant ’50s interiors.
Any one remember the title?? Thanks

Black and White Mystery/ Thriller set in mansion

I caught this movie on television over a decade ago, and I think I only watched a few scenes, so apologies if the plot is wrong.

I think a group of people were searching this big mansion after the owner had died. The only scene I remember involves a woman becoming trapped in a small, secret air-tight room. The others eventually notice she is missing and save her, after she is freed by a man she had a quote saying “how sweet the air tastes” now that she knows how it feels to go without it. Like the title says, it was in black and white, possibly 40s/50s.

Thanks in advance!

Odd Movie with possible Magic Circus

There was an old movie I rented once that was a story about a boy and a girl who end up in another land. I remember them not really knowing each other but then coming together to survive this new world. It had a really weird story line and there was a magic circus, especially at the end. They do something in this magical world and suddenly are back to their regular lives though one of them is on crutches. There is also a scene where they are getting ready for a ball or a preformance of some sort.

Thriller maybe from the 90’s

Hello, I’ve been trying to remember this movie for a long time. It’s not famous and I didn’t recognize any actor. I saw it long ago, one night that I was half asleep on the couch so I can’t give you much to work wit.It looked like something from the 90’s. The plot was about this girl, a college student, living a very private life (I remember clearly the scene where her friend tells her that she can’t just spend all her time studying and eating too much ice-cream and then go swimming to burn the calories, that she should try to live a little). Eventually (I don’t remember how, that’s probably the moment That I fell asleep X-D) She becomes the center of attention of a maniac stalker and she starts to work with the police to catch him. She also gets assigned a personal agent/bodyguard with whom she has a fling with. In the end they catch the guy but I don’t remember the details (again I was falling asleep). Now, I know it’s not much but I had to try because for some mad reason this has been obsessing me for years. I have these images of her swimming at night alone in the pool of the building, dark and ominous, it’s just stuck in my mind. I really hope someone will save me from my obsession.
PS. Forgive my mistakes I’m not native speaker.

Scene similar to movie “The Golden Child” but NOT The Golden Child

So this is a bit of an older movie I believe, I saw it was I was a kid, so it could’ve been from the 80’s up to the early 2000’s, a bit of a wide gap I know, Im sorry. It was in english and in color. Now, I wanna say the actor was Jackie Chan, but honestly with all the searching I’ve done Im not so sure anymore. Anyways, what I remember of the scene is that the character has to do this trial. He has to go through this cave while holding a glass full of water without losing any of it, (sounds exactly like the golden child I know). Now one of the differences I believe this scene has from the one in the golden child, is that the platforms the character has to cross are just kinda floating, flat spire surfaces, unlike the golden child which were supported. The other difference, is that the cave had a small tremor, (or maybe he slipped, Im not sure.) But either way, in this movie he actually DID spill like a drop of the water, but he did this like crazy flip or something and caught the drop of water he spilled in the glass before it fell into the bottomless pit he was standing over. That much I know didn’t happen in the golden child as I’ve watched it a few times to confirm it. So if anyone has any idea what movie I may be I would greatly appreciate it as I’ve been looking for years and have had no luck. Oh, and a side note, it’s not the movie “The Medallion” either.

Man in desert saves older man and then assassinates him back in civilization

Hello all.

I cannot remember the name of a movie I saw many years ago; maybe 30 years ago.

I am a bit splotchy about the details but it is about a man (who is dressed in all black Bedouin flowing garb and has a full dark beard) saving an elderly man in the desert.  They go through tough times together, including almost dying of thirst.

But eventually they end up back in civilization and it turns out that the man in black was actually out to kill the other older man.  But because he did not know the name of the older man and a face that goes with it, he did not put 2 and 2 together in the desert.

But then at the moment of him carrying out his assassination of the old man, he realizes that it is the same man that he had saved in the desert.

Any ideas…??

Thanks in advance.

It played on Disney but it’s not escape to witch Mountain

Okay so I remember this moving playing on Disney channel when I was a kid.

It has 2 kids, a boy and a girl. They are orphans I believe and twins I think. They get adopted by this man or woman but the person is rich and trying to buy everything to make them happy but they’re not. There’s this mountain that glows green and they’re attracted to it for some reason. I believe the person buys them a pony. I know the details are scattered I’m sorry.

A children/family film.

A boy works in a shop and is then taken to an orphanage where the owner is a wrestler/boxer.

A scene where a woman character sings on the stairs while the owner jumps around the boxing ring.

The owner connects with the boy by placing a note with chocolate into his cell, he later brings up when walking in assembly line with another orphan. who says something along the lines if ‘there is no chocolate here’

At the end of the film the boy goes back to the shop and looks outside to see the the orphanage owner has now become a clown, from a poster on the side of a vehicle.
