Black & White Chinese movie

About 40 years ago I saw on TV a dubbed in English, Asian movie. A witch in the employ of a warlord, warns of a young traveler and a meddler;an old  sorcerer who can turn himself into a fly.  The sorcerer has a curse, when he sees a pretty lady, he finds himself unable to move without serious concentration.  The young traveler knows how to  fight. He befriends the sorcerer.

One of the major scenes is when the witch goes after the sorcerer.  He becomes a fly and she becomes a small spiked orb.  She sees a fly go inside a bottle and she (as an orb) becomes smaller to go in after the fly. The sorcerer puts a cork on the bottle she is trapped for the rest of the movie. (She chased the wrong fly into the bottle.)

 

Help with movie title, please!!!!!!

Hi. If there is any way you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

I am looking for the title of a movie that I saw on either IFC network, Lifetime, or Sundance channel.  I believe I saw it in or around 2098-2008?? From what I remember, there were no famous actors in it and maybe only had 2-3 people in the movie. I will
give you a description from what I remember happened.

Basically, it starts off with a young woman (blonde, I think…looked maybe a little like britney murphy??) in an apartment and I think she is fresh off of a break up with a boyfriend. Anyway, she lives alone in an apartment and might be some type of college student or grad student working on a thesis?? Somehow, a detective gets involved, I think her ex was reported missing or something. The detective stays with her in the apartment (I think because she was getting creepy phone calls) and the two eventually become involved romantically. I’m pretty sure the whole movie takes place in her apartment building (kind of seemed like a very low budget film). I also remember there were like electricity problems and she would have to go to the basement in the building to fix it. It ends up with a twist at the end that she had actually murdered the “missing”
Ex boyfriend because I believe she caught him cheating in the basement of the apartment building (maybe in an abandoned old pool??). And I think the other twist is that the guy who was the detective really didn’t exist, she was just imaging it.  All of the pictures in her apartment of her and her ex boyfriend had his face either cut out or a red X or something over his face, but at the end you see that the “detective” is the one in the pics with her.  She had imagined this whole scenario with the detective the whole movie.

Any help would be great. I’ve been trying to figure this out for years.

***nobody famous in this movie

movie set in a private school

I think the movie is made in 2000s or 90s.it takes place in like 50s or 60s and in a school.
I remember that in the school there was a rule that if a student did something wrong he had to fight the two senior student and usually the two older student beat the poor student who had to fight them.but one time the main character fights the two and defeats them.
He also had a friend that fought the two guys and lost and left the school but I think they met again in the end of the film.
in another scene the main character was tied to the ground in the cold weather at night by the other students and left there.

Weird western with kids

So I’m pretty sure I saw this movie 8 years ago on Netflix. It’s in English and in color.

It starts in a small town apparently in the middle of nowhere. The main character is a grocery store clerk/stalker talking about how he started carrying a gun and how strong it makes him feel.  Somehow his friends also find guns and they have a shooting range in a mine. In the end the kids help an old woman cross the street and…there is a shootout all the kids die.  I also remember the main character falling in love with his gun…?

Alice though the mirror kinda action movie

Hi, its been years im looking for this movie.
I saw it like in 2006 maybe, when i was 7.
I saw it various times in tv (i think in iSat, or something like that), It looked like a 2000 movie, it wasnt too old. It looked like an action movie and has this blue or green cold color palet.
What i remember is a woman that found a mirror in an alley or backstreet, she gets through that and enter to this world that look like a big big kinda abandoned city. I think she meets up with a men that wears a rabbit head, that knew that everyone was looking for her and that she was in danger, so he helped her. I remember an scene where they were like walking by a giant building like in the corner because there was a big void or something, it was huge and they were filmmed like from an up view In a part of the movie they both meet this weird pot druggy guy that has like a place with a lot of plants or something along that lines? This guy i think give them something. Then the next thing i remember is this girl and the rabbit man running from something, and they get into a train and the rabbit man was hurted 🙁  and something wanted to kill them but the rabbit man sacrificed himself to save ”Alice” (she had another name, but everyone called her Alice) OH! and another thing that i remember was this weird human chess game, with  powerfull people that controlled the people on the chessboard with electrodes in their heads, and this ”Alice” whats to liberate them but she get in trouble.
Sorry if my english is not that good, my main languaje is spanish 😛
Thank you in andvance!

Tech spy/office killer movie from 80s

Color movie probably from the 80s by the clothing and hair. Saw on TV on weekend afternoon. Possibly a B-Movie since I dont recall any actors. Made for TV?

Man hired to break into office and steal “tech info” (industrial espionage) soon finds that a former employee (?) has come to kill the office workers. He eventually meets up with one of the female workers. An attraction forms while together they elude the killer. Man foils killer, gets her free and escapes so he isn’t caught by police. She goes home to find the man in her home waiting for her.

Help!

Ive been trying to figure out this movie for over a year now. I hope somebody could help me! It was between 2010-2014 and a horror movie. I only remember bits and pieces. A man kills his dad to take over the business, I believe a restaraunt. The scene I remember that would set this apart from others is:

A guy that’s overweight, well hung  and a virgin, has sex with an Asian lady who’s trying to get back at her boyfriend who’s the owner of the restaraunt. Just as the guy gets into it, she’s cuts off his penis.

I’m not sure if there people are eating other people but I think so.

Please help me! Thank you!!!!

Movie from the sci fo channel seen 2003-2005

ok so if anyone could help I’d greatly appreciate it! I only remember snippets so here we go…

the movie starts off with two kids in I think it was a backyard and anyways the kids were talking about creepy stuff and I want to say one of the two had a jar full of eyeballs. There is a noise coming from outside the tent and the kids start to get scared and I remember shortly after like one of the kids sister comes down stairs in the house to get herself a glass of milk and this disfigured guy kills her by I think slamming her up against the wall. The only other thing I can remember about the movie is there is possibly a jail setting and one guy is cut in half swinging from beam to beam down the hallway still completely alive kind of like kids on a monkey bar and I want to say it was from some green goop or something. Sorry I couldn’t give much more info but any help or leads is appreciated

movie about convict redemption

I remember seeing this movie in the early 2000s. A former convict is released from prison. He lives alone in a sort of run down apartment. It’s based in LA or California. He befriends a young black kid and basically mentors him. I believe this film was made in the mid to late 90s.

Pretty sure this wasn’t a dream…

Hear me out on this one, but I am pretty sure this was a real movie:

Martial arts movie where the human is fighting aliens. Obviously not a fair fight, so there was a way that they adjusted their strengths so even the whole thing. I think there were big puppets for some of the aliens. I had to have seen this movie in the mid-90s, if in fact it is real.

Family adventure movie with giant and magic blowing dwarf

I remember watching this movie when I was quite little:

There’s some kind of adventuring dude, and he’s travelling around with some companions, one of which is a ridiculously strong guy (maybe a giant?), and the other is dwarf who can blow out of his mouth with the force of a strong wind. When recounting their adventures, he mentions a king who rewards them for something by saying ‘you can take whatever gold you can carry’. The giant is able to carry all of the gold, at once, which pisses off the king.

Then, several years (maybe?) later, something happens, and the main dude has to get his gang back together. I vaguely remember that he finds the wind-blowing dwarf on a boat – I think.

Banquet where men and women forced to strip and tied together, woman kidnapped, falls in love with one of thieves- comedy?

I saw this movie at a friend’s house in approximately 1985-86.

It had some slapstick elements but seemed to be more of a romance later on.  I think the lead actress had dark curly hair.  The lady was at some fancy banquet (maybe a fundraiser?) when a band of robbers shows up.  The people are forced to strip and give up valuables.  The robbers are tying men and women together at each hand and foot.  (Could you possibly come up with something that could take longer to accomplish?). I don’t think there was any nudity.  The lead hides behind a table stacked with food and grabs this napkin the size of a towel to wrap herself in.  She gets tied to someone she really doesn’t get along with.

Somehow she is chosen to be taken as a hostage.  She ends up falling in love with (or at least sleeping with) one of the thieves.

I have been wondering what my friends’ parents made us watch for 30 years.  Help me confirm it wasn’t porn.

Summer Camp Movie! 80s maybe 90s

Okay, so I used to watch this movie CONSTANTLY when I was around 5 (I’m 19 now) I’ve been trying to figure out what the title of this damn movie is for as long as I can remember.

I remember that I would watch it on TV. I had Videotron and it was on the free movie channel which was either 900 or 999 and they had a free children’s movie selection and thats where I would watch it.

So, this movie I believe was in English but there is a high possibility it was in French and probably came out in the 90s I’m really not sure what the release date. What I remember is that it was two camps or two different vacation spots and they would rival. They were also kids, but it may not have been a camp because I clearly remember the rivals were two groups of kids and they would go home to their parents. And the “leaders” of these two camps or whatever fell in love and would sneak out late at night to spend time together. I remember one scene where he kissed the other team leader and he mentioned she tasted funny and she said it was because she was wearing bug spray.

Another scene that I remember was when they were at “war” and they were sling shooting mud at each other, but one guy put a rock in the mud and it hit the girl in the face so they had to forfeit.

Also they were all fighting in one scene but they stopped to help a drowning bee in a barrel.

Obscure SE Asian Movie

I remain intermittently haunted throughout the years by the memory of an obscure SE Asian movie I saw at a festival once as a teenager about a lonely bike courier who falls in unrequited love with a streetwalker, and eventually abducts her corpse after she is murdered for doublecrossing her pimp, then takes said corpse home and lives with it.

This scene of him sitting at his kitchen table with her blank-eyed flyblown corpse, saying: “Those other men; they don’t love you. But *I* love you. I’ll always love you.”

1996-1998; it was southeast asian; best guess Vietnamese; it was undoubtedly a movie; I saw it at the Canberra Film Festival; I ushered the screening of it; it was relatively new at the time; it was in colour

If I never find out the name of this movie it will plague me to my grave

A animated film (probably stop motion film)

Hello everyone.
I remember this scene, a girl was chased by some toys (probably dolls, carts, etc) and things (like chairs, wardrobes, tables, I don’t know). I remember that, this girl went up the stairs and locked herself in a room. The lively things began to break the door, and she, frightened, threw herself out the window. That’s the only memory I have of that movie. It’s from the 2000s (or older), and it was color.
I thank you very much if you helped me find the name of the film.

Black and White Comedy Movie??

I saw a clip on facebook from a black and white unknown charlie chaplin sort of movie in which there is sort of hilarious mayham when two people wearing a horse or mule costume are running around and people are trying to catch them and they kick a few individuals probably guards and finally run away in same horse costume riding a bicycle. Can anybody please tell me which movie was that which has got this scene.

Thanks and regards

Demensional shift

ok, this is a movie I have been trying to find for about 20 years

It was mad in the late 70’s or early 80’s.

possibly a made for TV movie or and episode of Twilight Zone (or something similar)

 

All I can remember from it is this:

there is a scientist that creates a machine that (I think) accidentally makes a link to another dimension, he invites his assistand and the assistants girlfriend to see it. To prove it works he turns the machine on and places her compact on the platform, the reflection is of a tree. Somehow they get pulled in one at a time, firs the scientist, a few minutes later the assistant, then a few seconds after him the girl. When she gets there she wanders for a couple of days before finding the assistant, discovering he had been there for a week, then they find the scientist and find he had been there for a year.

This has been driving me nuts for years, if you can help, PLEASE! It was a good movie and id like to see it again!

 

Small time cinemahouse loses soundtrack

There is a small time cinema house trying to compete and they manage to get hold of a really up to date, fantastic film which everyone will want to see.  I know there is a scene with ?Spartans?  So they advertise, get lots of interest and finally the film arrives.  However, they are about to open their doors when they discover that the sound track has not come with it.  They have to go on, so they make up the soundtrack whilst the film is playing. I only remember the trailer, and there’s a bit in the film where a very muscular guy is talking and being given the dialogue “And I can make my nipple go up and down like this”.  I have looked for this film for ages, but you guys can tell me, I know
