Posthumous narration

Ok ive spent the last 5 years trying to find this movie and im at my wits end.

I remeber watching it as a kid in the early 2000’s so im assuming it came out in the 90’s or at the very least before 2007. The story was basically this- a teenage girl(blonde if remeber) tells the story of how she died, and throughout the movie it would hard-cut to the girl talking to the viewer either explaining or making some morbid witty remarke before cutting back to the movie. Its essentially a “who-dunnit?” Movie as the entire time the movie makes you suspect a handful of people before it cuts to the girl explaining how they weren’t. At the end its revealed that she was killed on accident by two boys as soon as she walked into the Building(i believe it was dorm because they attended private school, uniforms and all) they “liked” her and were her “friends” but it was obvious they just wanted sex. Im almost positive it was a head wound. Either something fell on her, or she fell and hit her head. But i remeber it was the boys fault and they did try to hide the body. I remeber the death scene was in slo-mo and the boys were shocked, i think she was on drugs.  The movie takes place largely in winter. And throughout the movie the people looking for answers learn that this good girl wasnt as good as she lead people to believe(drugs, drinking, sex).

Im about ready to just give up. Lol plz help

3 men in asia meet and smoke joints. one gets into prison, if the other two accept going to prison the first one will be saved

I watched a movie long time ago

3 guys (who don’t know each other) meet in a country in Asia (maybe Thailand?), they smoke joints have a nice evening and each one continues its way.

After coming back home (I guess the US) the main character is contacted by a woman lawyer because one of the other was caught. She manages to reach both of them.

The caught one is in prison and condemned to death. If they agree to go to prison the time for the first one is lower or it will be forgiven.

One says no and the main character doubts a lot, he ends up having a relation with the lawyer who was in reality the sister of the caught one.

In the end he agrees but the caught one is finally killed


Nasally-voiced girl in possibly 80s-early 90s movie

I watched this in the late 90’s but my guess would be it came out in the 80’s. Unfortunately I only remember one strange line. A nasally-voiced girl (or possibly a woman acting like a childish girl) is wearing a frilly dress and says something along the lines of “sometimes I put alka seltzer in the toilet… I like to watch them bubble”. For some reason I thought it may have been the Incredible Shrinking Woman but after watching it isn’t. But it had similar vibes and the woman/girl may have looked kind of like Lily Tomlin? All I know for sure is the thing about the alka seltzer :/ Help!

Psychological horror about a college professor and a group of his students

I have this posted on reddit as well but it seems like everyone’s pretty stumped so. If I had to guess the movie was probably made late 90’s early 2000’s, I watched it around 2003 on It didn’t have any notable actors that I can remember.

It wasn’t the entire class that went, just five or six students, and I don’t think it was punishment for failing or anything like that. I remember them in a classroom at the start, rounded room with bleacher type seating, then I want to say they spend a brief night together before the trip, which is when it shows the professors ulterior goal of using the outing as a social experiment. I can’t remember if the students read the entry that night or the morning after but they immediately go on the trip. The middle of the movie is pretty vague for me, I do remember them going missing one by one and there being evidence of foul play but I don’t believe they ever saw any “bodies”. Towards the ends, before it’s just him and the female student left, he finds the harpoon gun. I can’t remember if it had some sort of significance as to why they were in that particular area for the school trip or if it was completely random but, as I said, it did strike me as particularly odd. When it’s just him and her left he asks her what she’s done (or something along those lines) and instead of answering she smiles and reaches behind her. Assuming she’s reaching for a weapon he shoots her only to realize she was reaching for her cellphone. I’m pretty sure he drops the harpoon gun, before running out of the woods and to the closest town. It’s either a diner or a bed and breakfast, I really want to say it was a two floor B&B, but he runs in and spots his missing students sitting at a table laughing and eating. They ask what took so long, then where the female student is, while he just stares at them in horror before the movie cuts.

Only one person dies the entire movie! I’ve already crossed off after dark, after midnight, the fear, april fools day, cry wolf, silent scream, the philosophers, the geographer drank his globe away.

A detective/thriller movie

I watched this movie a couple of months back. It’s in color and anywhere between 1990-2018. It’s set in America, in winter time. A policewoman’s father gets killed by mistake by 2 junkies who lost a note with the address of their victim and got the name of the town wrong. They were looking for something at his place, and possibly torched him, but haven’t found it. While investigating the murder, she also searchers through his house and I think she finds a book with comics or something and discovers that he was a well-known comics writer in his younger years.

I recall at one stage the 2 junkies have an argument and one of them, together with his girlfriend, kills the other by dropping an aircon on him from their window.

It’s a bit Fargo-like.

I hope you can help me as I’m out of my mind trying to remember the name!

Martial Arts Movie

This is a movie from the 80s or 90s, I am leaning towards 90s. The movie is in english and from what I recall semi low budget so I can’t remember any actors.

Main character met a pro wrestler/fighter etc as a child and the wrestler gave him a keepsake (might have been a medal, or a picture) Fast forward, main character is grown and goofs off practicing his martial arts in a warehouse on boxes or something like that. Gets discovered and is subjected to cutting edge training in a weird room so as to have a chance against his opponents. There might also be performance enhancing drugs involved. The bouts are all pretty much full contact and the fighters don’t seem to have alot of animosity towards each other after the fights are over, near the end the main character becomes a big deal in the organization, one of his co fighters that he considers a friend (the friends stage name might have been budda guy or budokai?) is put into a fight to the death against a crazed drug enhanced fighter that might have been wearing a shock collar to keep him in check, there’s a cage i think and weapons maybe involved, the friend is killed by the crazed fighter who turns out to be the main characters childhood hero from the beginning of the movie, main character is forced to fight his hero, he shows him the keepsake and the crazed fighter mellows out and seems like hes in a trance remembering his former self before he is killed by the main villain…..good guy goes onto win etc etc.

Cheesy Romantic Movie with Faking Cancer In a Restaurant / Diner

I remember seeing this movie maybe last year or so, it may have been on netflix i’m not too sure – It was on color. I don’t remember any major plot details other than this one scene where a couple goes to a restaurant and they the male calls the waitress over and orders some alcoholic drink to which the waitress says they can’t serve them without ID – the male pleads and lies that the female has some incurable illness like cancer and this is their last meal together – The waitress responds with ” I’ll see what I can do ” and brings a bottle of wine / champagne and then after she walks away the female laughs and says something like “I can’t believe you did that!” It was a very romantic restaurant and i believe they weren’t 18, maybe 17 years of age. they were well dressed if that helps.

Movie where woman politely spits out bad tasting drink back into cup

A friend and I are trying to remember a movie or show where a woman is drinking a hot beverage given to her (coffee, hot chocolate, unsure…) She does not like the taste at all but politely opens her mouth and lets the liquid dribble back into the cup. When the person looks at her, she just says, “It’s hot”. I can’t remember the name of said movie/show for the life of me and hoping someone could help. Thanks!!!

American (or Canadian) movie about a man in a mental institution who claims to be an alien but turns out to be the son of Jesus

My girlfriend and I can’t remember the name of this movie. It was low budget, with no big names in the cast. Mental patient claims to be an alien with supernatural powers and takes an interest in the lives of other patients. There is an evil nurse who murders people, and the main character grows particularly close to a young woman who was abused by family (or something). Eventually, after he learns about the cruelty and evil of people, it is revealed that he is the son of Jesus. Jesus appears and tells him that this cruelty is why he turned his back on humanity.

1980s – kids use an arcade game to travel in time

I found part of an American, color movie that my mom captured from TV while capturing all of the family VHS tapes to the computer. Characters Nicky Louden and Eric Morgan were part of a group that used software and a video game from an arcade to send one of the kids through time. They watched him on a monitor. Usually they traveled by bike, but in one scene, they talked a used car dealer named Mulligan into lending them a car. In one of the times that the traveling kid visited, he got to interact with the creators of one of the first automobiles. The Arcade or the video game may have been called “mirage”. One of the kids said, “you get things done my doing.”

Dance Battle Movie

These guys used to have illegal dance battle regularly. But then there is a police raid and the main dancer is jailed for illegal dancing. The guys best friend is hospitalized due to some thing. And later he commits suicide. The main dancer gets out of prison and takes revenge by dancing the battle and winning it. But does not kill the opponent. However, the end is with some mutual friend killing the guy who lost. This is not a Hollywood movie, I guess.

australian i think?

a young girl has run away from what i cant remember, she get caught stealing from a petrol station/truck stop i think. later that night she breaks in and spends the night sleeping in the bathroom. the guy a red head i think then picks her up from the side of the road? and takes her home with him, they end up falling in love but not without there battles. they go swimming at a water a hole and he throws her in and i think she trys to run away again…. i think its an Australian film festival film….?

Raw Chicken Breast with Knife Movie

So I was watching Poltergeist under the assumption that this scene was in it, but now that I’ve discovered that it’s not I’m really bothered and Google won’t give me anything besides chicken recipes.

I don’t remember the scene context — just kind of a still image of a whole chicken (like one you’d bake at Thanksgiving, Head gone wings whatever whatever) and it’s holding a big kitchen knife. The scene itself is similar in lighting and color to the kitchen in Poltergeist with the meat coming to life (thunder possibly) but then again memory is weird and this may not be in a horror movie.

I can confirm this is not Poultrygeist, despite the weird connection.

I was definitely very young when I saw it (so probably an 80s or 90s movie).

I saw it on TV but I’m pretty sure it was a film, not entirely sure though.

Anyways, this is really bizarre and I can’t figure it out. Looking forward to hearing responses!

strange movie

Hello friends, I have returned after a long time. Sadly my two prior movie memories still has no takers. Lets move on the third one.

This one I have the least memory of but can testify its being late 80s/ early 90s; lots of flashy red and bluish-indigos through a foggy lens. It seems like a horror-thriller and involves two hitmen like characters, one of whom has a very scary face. But they are not the main characters nor villains.

There is one scene, when these two walk into a house wielding automatic rifles or SMGs where lots of people have gathered, and naturally cause panic. One lady screams on seeing the scary face causing him to fire warning shots.

Another scene, the climax or penultimate. A smaller house where a lot of scared people have blockaded themselves in from zombies or cannibalistic aliens and there is a pretty little boy (this one might be the lead cast) who seems the least scared. Them this hitman duo turn up in their bikes, shoot the place and the zombies/aliens down and rescue the rabbits, sorry people. The little boy very bravely runs after them and mumbles his gratitude. The non-scary one then acknowledges his thanks and hands over something liked a medallion or similar talisman and tells him to take care. Then they drive on again for the next shootout zone maybe. THE END.

And there my memory ends too.

Superhero-journalist with Gangster boss with hard to pronounce name and double-headed pistol adopts name blood-something

I am having a weird moment where I can’t remember who the primary protagonists and the primary antagonists are, but I remember some side characters and a few scenes…I would really appreciate if any one of you can help me out. I saw this I’d say around 2 years ago, and it was on the plane so by then it already left theaters if it was a new release…pretty sure it was a new movie

The first scene I remembered was this old gangster guy stepped out of a car carrying a suitcase walking into a fancy building. He sits down in a room with the (casino I think)’s boss, “Danny”, and is apparently there to display his authority in the turf because this guy is running a business in his turf without his consent/involvement. The Danny guy makes fun of him, mocking his age and his “boringness”, and his name (which I remember is hard to pronounce and has the syllable -Judd)…and insinuates that he needs a catchier name like a superhero (I think he referred to the protagonist), which genuinely bothered the gangster (which is comical). He also flaunts about how he dresses his bodyguards beside him with name brands such as Gucci and etc….only for them to suddenly be gunned down by the boss with his double-headed pistol, and he sincerely asks “danny” if the pistol is boring, and said it was really hard to make. Danny was piss-scared at this point and begged to be spared, saying he will spread the word on how great he is if he lets him live. To this, the gangster leader “spares” him by walking out of the building…only to blow it up with the suitcase bomb seen in the beginning which he left in the room.

I also remember he’s not the “main villain”, but that he joined forces with the main villain (which I also forget who), and is now quickly taking over the city thanks to that…he also ended up adopting the monicker Blood-anotherpartofhisname, there was a scene where the protagonist is trying to steal back/destroy some files from the news office which is closed or something? I remember a theme where this blood-something guy who now dons a mask has the Protagonist pinned down on the ground in a dark/dimly lit journal office with his double-headed pistol…and the superhero theme somehow connects me to the fact that the Protagonist was some kind of super hero, but I remember it also being not very surprising when he was pinned down by a guy with no super powers other than a doubleheaded gun…so he was either not very strong or the power was new to him and he’s not yet proficient at using it. I also seem to vaguely remember that a car/motorcycle or some kind of vehicle managed break through the windows in the building and crash into blood-something which caused his demise.

I unfortunately don’t quite have any actor names…I can only recall that the guy who portrayed “blood-something” is an American actor and I was so surprised since he had such a convincing slavic(?) accent in his role…his name MIGHT start with Gary, but I can’t find him

I know I know it’s pretty dumb I don’t remember the protagonist or the antagonist…but I think that goes to show how much this character struck me





Waiting room

I remember seeing a movie about a patient (women) settings in a waiting room and she is looking at everything and later the doctor asks her questions about what she remembers recently and she starts describing the waiting room in details even a glass cup with a cracked corner.

-In colour, saw it around 2011-2014 might be older, in English, might be horror can’t recall

Children’s drawn cartoon with man who lived in a wooden house in the snow?

I don’t remember too much of this, however I probably watched it in around 2005/06 when I was very young. It was a colour British children’s cartoon which was drawn in a way that now makes me think of the old Winnie the Pooh movies (but I don’t think it was that as there were no human characters except for Christopher Robin). I’m pretty sure it was a movie. I only remember a few parts- there was a man who wore a brown flatcap and he lived in a small wooden house. It was snowing a lot and I think he walked home but I remember there was footprints in the snow. He got home and had a tea and cookie, which he dropped in the drink so he said something along the lines of “come back” and he couldn’t get it out. This is really random but I always remember it for some reason and wonder what it is?

Movie where girl brushes off her crush and he drowns

The movie was in color, English language, probably saw it around 1998-2002 and the word “moon” or “moonlight” may have been in the title. Im almost certain i got it at a video rental store. I can almost see the cover in my memory. (Possibly a girl looking out an attic window at a moon?) The main actress was a young girl (8-14yrs?) and she had dark brown or black hair. There was a boy who was quiet that liked her, and wanted to kiss her or told her he liked her, and she turned him down. If i recall correctly she wasnt very nice about it either. A few scenes later the boy is at a lake and slips in and drowns. She proceeds to feel horrible and I think I remember a funeral scene as well. There was a camera angle from the boys perspective as he was drowning, as well.
