Was this really a film?

Hello. Does anyone recall a film featuring a young lady (white female) lost/trapped in a fantasy land with notable characters being an ape called ‘monkey’ (actor in ape costume) for a companion to the lady,  and a blind artist/painter played by a black male.

The artist had a desire for gold and was lured to his death by a villain (i cant recall the detail of the villain) down a manhole with the promise of gold when the surrounding landscape appeared to catch fire. The landscape was sandy, possibly sand dunes were present (maybe small volcanoes..)

As the land burns the young lady is rescued by a floating small submarine in the sky which drops a rope or ladder down to her to climb. When the young lady asks how the rescuers found her, the rescuers claim that “The man in the moon described the way”

This would have been filmed at a guess no earlier than 1970 no later than 1990. I believe it was filmed in color and English language though it may have been colorized and dubbed. My sibling recalls the film but nobody else from that time in our life can recall it, so we are wondering if this was a figment of our joint imagination.

I would like to find the move I’ve seen 10-15 years ago on TV.

It was about two teenage school girl friends. One showed old score on her leg, another one gets compassionate. And then they become VERY close intimate friends to share everything, not able live out of each other. They could even get a bath together. But the mother once found this goes too far, and forbids the one friend to see the other so makes obstacles. The girls hiddenly meet and invent to destroy the mother as she is the obstacle in their relation. The final subtitles on the screen that this was real story: the sentence for this crime was to set teenage apart and restrict to ever see each other to do this destructive addicted relation. One girl was taken to America, last episode the ship with her leaving the shore… Very essential! Please help me to remember the TITLE!

In which movie is a car pushed on a railway track by an SUV?

Around 2005 I saw a movie on TV in which the bad guy pushed the good guy on a railway track with the train approaching. The good guy tries to brake and shift to reverse, but the bad guy’s SUV is too powerful. The good guy dies.

Later in the movie, the bad guy tries the trick again, but now the good guy (another one) first tries to brake but then suddenly puts the gear in forward as he speeds over the railway track with the bad guy behind him. The train slams into the bad guy’s car.

The scenes happen in the dark, and that’s about what I remember. I’m almost sure it was english spoken, and almost sure it was a movie and no TV-show. I think it was filmed in color (seem to remember a red flashing light at the railway crossing).

I looked on the web and there’s an episode of CSI (s2e7 Caged) where something like this happens but no, that’s not what I’m looking for after reading the plot. I seem to remember it was a movie and the pushing happens twice.

I moreover remember that this happened in the movie Training Day, but I watched that one last night and the pushings didn’t happen. Memory seems to be failing… Still, these scenes might have been cut because in 2005 I watched some kind of deluxe DVD-edition with lots of extras and yesterday I saw a plain version.

Any suggestions?

What’s the movie

What’s the movie, where a terrorist put in four bombs. Three were blown up and in order to define the place of the 4-th, FBI team cheats on him by showing the time if a day/night in the window. Later we guess about the cheating because the time was added and it seemed the bimb gad blown up . But it’s not so. And terrorist tells the place. The team has time abd they disclaime the bomb

2 movies I can’t remember

I have 2 movies floating around that I can’t seem to remember much of besides a scene or two. The first one was some SyFy movie from the early 2000’s about these shadow creatures or demons that I think come from another dimension/gateway from inside a military base and destroy everything as they escape

The second is some space related movie from the same time where these people start waking up in pods and there is something taking them or dispatching of them until a couple manage to get out of the pods.
I know these are vague descriptions, but they have been bugging me for years and I can’t seem to find anything about them anywhere

Film from the 2000s.

Film from the 2000s. One boy was fat and unlucky, the other more self-confident. Both were in love with a girl. I remember several scenes. When they ate at the train station, the fat boy got a sandwich in a huge roll of foil. When a woman took them in, the boys were swimming in the pool, the woman came in and they sat down under the water, and the woman said, they say, what I didn’t see there. Then the three of them went to sleep on the same bed, and the girl lay down between the boys so that one of them would not be offended.

Movie

There’s a movie/short or something about a young boy’s birthday party want to say his name was Billy or something basic like that. remember him light hair possibly brown. I remember there being balloons and presents and remember watching it on a vhs tape in 90’s 00’s and the look of the production looks 80’s or 90’s.  I think his mom helped him set up for the party. For some reason the memory comes up every so often and try to find it but no matter what I search can’t find it anywhere.

Black & White Arthouse Film with Selective Color

Hello,

I am trying to locate the name of a film (possibly a foreign film) that was black and white with selective usage of color.

I cannot remember much else about it except that it was mostly a black/white film that seemed to end in full color.

Please NOTE: This film was not “Pleasantville” or the That is a common response when describing the film’s motif, but this film was more arthouse/independent.  Possibly French.

Thank you!

I can’t remember this movie I watched when I was a kid

I remember watching a scary movie when I was a kid but I can’t find any information at all!

From what I can remember it was a telethon show about a haunting or something similar and supernatural stuff started happening on the telethon. I’m pretty sure it ended with the host being possessed or something. If anyone knows please respond its driving me crazy.

Romantic movie with great family sentimental value

I am looking for an old romantic film that has great sentimental value to my family, and would be grateful if you could help me find it.

Movie details:
.
Was viewed on TV in May-June 1981, so if ever was theatrical likely to have been released before 1981. Likely: much before as it was probably B&W. At least, part of it is.

Movie description:
The protagonist goes back in time to an earlier century, meets a woman there who we remember has something to do with Pianos, Piano playing, or singing. They fall in love.

Turns out the woman has some malfunction of the heart: deadly in her century, easily solvable in the century the protagonist came from.

So, he goes back to his century (alone) and looks for her there… identifies her as a flight attendant and convinces her to come with him to a hospital right away. She of course didn’t even know of her heart malfunction, which is then easily cured. He then reappears baring flowers to re-introduce himself…

Need Help! Driving me Nuts!

OK, so I was telling a friend about a crazy movie scene that I watched the other day, but cannot for the life of me remember the movie/show/series it was from….I can’t even remember the actor/tress involved, nor anything else from the movie!

The scene is as follows.

Husband and wife are getting it on (barely), and the wife tells the husband that he can “finish anywhere he wants.” He clarifies by asking her “anywhere?” And she confirms. He gets up, and finishes on a framed photo of his mother in law.

I have checked my Hulu, Netflix and Prime viewing history, googled key phrases etc and cannot figure this out! Help!

Guy kisses girl out of pity

Hi,

So I saw a scene from this movie, it was somewhere in between 2007 and 2012. It was an English movie. They had an American accent. So, a guy and a gir were sitting on a table at the restaurant and talking about something. It was not a date, I think. I think they were discussing something important. While the guy is talking, he suddenly looks at his arm and sees the girl stroking it. Then he looks at her and she looks desparate. So, he kisses her, out of pity, I think. Then, she says “Thanks.” Both the characters were white and looked like they were in their twenties.

Please let me know if you know.
