Anyone remember this super hero short or film (revised)?

I saw this on video during the summer of 1987, so this would have had to have been made before then. A single mom with a young son is dating this abusive guy who bears her. One night he beats her in front of her son and they both fight back, but he clearly has the upper hand. Anyone, a super hero jumps in and saves both of them by either killing the guy or knocking him out. Does that sounds familiar?

Anyone remember this weird movie?

Hi,

I saw this movie on cable in early 2003. Basically there were two beautiful women traveling cross country and meet up with a professor from Julliard. They wind up staying at some guy’s house; I think he was a judge but could be wrong. One of the women also comes on to him. Anyone, I believe the guy gets murdered and they tried to cover it up. I remember the professor complaining that he just wanted “some excitement in his life” but never expected this. Does this sound familiar?

movie where two ladies were abducted

I remember seeing this movie on TV around 1997. Two ladies (I remember one was married with children)  go out on the town to celebrate. They were abducted by a deranged man who was stalking one of them. I think he felt rejected by one of them. I believe he bumped into her once, and she apologized, and he said, “Pretty lady like you should never be sorry.” He put them in the trunk of his car and actually filtered carbon monoxide into the trunk. When they tried to push the carbon monoxide out, he started sticking a knife through the trunk. Anyway, I believe one of them survived. She continued to speak at his parole hearings. When his parole was denied, he said, “It’s not over.” And that’s where the movie ended. Does this sound familiar?

grandmother with 2 kids going cross country

I saw this movie on TV in the late 1980s so it had to be the 1980s or earlier. So this grandmother said to her grandchildren (one teenage girl and the boy was younger) “We’re moving to California.” When one of them asked about school, she said, “I’ve already spoken with the principal.” On the way there, the grandmother was overwhelmed driving. When the granddaughter offered to drive, she said “I’m a tough old merch.” The grandmother died shortly after and the grand-daughter continued to drive. Later they got pulled over, and the cop looked at their license plate and said” Where you headed?” Does this sound familiar?

thriller from the 1980s or earlier

I remember seeing this movie on TV in 1985-1986. There is this nerdy guy with glasses who is trailing this guy, who I think is a killer or at least a really bad guy. I think the nerdy guy is foreign because he does not know where things are and he meets this woman who says “What did you do? Put a pin in a map? When the bad guy finds out who the other guy is, there is a scene where he removes the guy’s glasses and then punches him in the face.

anyone know this movie?

Here is what I remember. A old woman decides to take her two children (or two grandchildren ?) and move to California. They set out in their car. The old woman is getting stressed out driving, but she says “I’m a tough old merch.” Shortly after, she dies of a heart attack. Then, the daughter continues driving. I remember they got pulled over by the police. He sees the license plate and asks “Where are you headed?” Does this sound familiar?

man jumping over pillars

I saw this movie on TV in the 80’s so it is an older move. There is a man who has jump over these pillars to get to the other side. There were black spaces in the middle of the pillars. He  calls out “there has  to be a ground.” He then takes out a quarter and drops it but does not hear it land. He then says, “there is no ground!” He then proceeds to jump from pillar to pillar.

traveling salesman serial killer

Hi. I remember seeing this thriller where this traveling salesman, who has a wife and family back home, picks up this weird guy. He eventually kicks the guy out but the guy continues to stalk him. You also keep hearing about a serial killer on the loose. It turns out that the traveling salesman is the serial killer and he says he kills for “the fun of it.” He then kills the weird guy. The traveling sales man then returns home to his normal life.

HBO special

I posted this a while back but I think I have more information. In 1986 HBO used to air children’s specials. But a lot of them were former After School Specials or episodes of Insight. In September of 1986, I remember seeing this special where this young boy (about junior high age) somehow goes ahead in time to high school. On the first day, he is walking down the hall feeling overwhelmed. He is carrying all of his books and then drops them on the floor. He is in class and the teacher is asking what everyone did over the summer. The boy has some long dramatic story. He then runs into some friends who ask him “how is high school.” At the end the boy’s father asks what he wants, and the boy says he wants to go back before the summer to when he was not in high school. I went through some old TV guides and I think the name of the show may be “R.W.” I looked it up and can’t find any information. Does anyone know of a show named “R.W?”

 

woman trapped in building by crazy security guard

In this movie this woman works in some high security building. There is a buff security guard that is obsessed with her. The security guard has cameras everywhere. The security guard gets upset when he sees the woman making out with her boyfriend in the parking lot. The security guard then traps the woman and her boyfriend in the building. Most of the movie is just cat and mouse with them trying to escape. She finally is able to break the glass but he threatens to kill her boyfriend. Does this sound familiar?  I want to say that I saw it on TV in the late 90’s.

Anyone recognize this scene?

I don’t remember the plot to this movie. But there is this scene where this teenage boy comes to this girl’s house to take her on a date. He is greeted by her father, who is a large man. I could be wrong, but I think here father was played by Ron Karabatsos. Anyway the father introduces the boy to his sons and daughters. One of his son’s names is Frank. The father asks the boy what they will be doing on their date. The boy says they are going out for some sushi. The father says that the girl likes home cooked meals. The boy says , ” I can smell it from here.” The father says, “You’re going to eat it here” implying that they will eat dinner at the house. After they finish dinner, the father shakes the boys hand giving him approval to take his daughter out. Does this sound familiar?

super hero movie or short from the 80’s

So this was either a super hero movie or some kind of short from the 1980’s. I saw this on TV or video in July of 1987 if that helps with the time frame. This single mother is getting physically abused by her boyfriend and she tries to hide it from her yer young son. One night the boyfriend slaps the mother in front of her son. The boyfriend then attacks both of them. Suddenly, this super hero comes in and either kills or severely injurs the boyfriend. Does this sound familiar?

Does this sound familiar

I saw this in July of 1987. There are two men in a fenced-in field. One man is talking and backing the other man up. The other man is walking backwards. The man who is talking is saying something about spending 30 years in prison. Finally, the man walking backwards is backed up against part of the fence. I don’t remember anything after that. I thought it was “From Noon Till Three” but I don’t think so.

disturning scene that has been driving me crazy

I saw this around 1986. I used to think it was an episode of Little House on the Prairie, but now I think it was a movie. I think it took place a long time ago. There is a new boy at a school. At recess, the kids form a circle around him. A girl bully forces him to pull down his pants. She even says “down with the undies.” And they all look at him with his underwear down. The girl bully says “And we are going to do this tomorrow, the next day, and the next.” Anyone remember this?

wacky alien movie

I saw this movie during the daytime in 1988. I think it was an alien invasion comedy film. There were two men and a woman driving around in an alien invasion. The scene I remember the most is they got hungry and decided to go to “Burger World.” They got to the drive thru and were arguing about what to order. The male driver, who was clearly the leader of the group, finally order ed three burgers, three fries and three soda shakes. He repeated it a couple of times, but the guy taking their order was killed by an alien. The three then go in the restaurant to investigate. They are about to leave and the woman says “But we didn’t get our order.” The lead male yanks her away and the scene ends.
