The movie where the father put different things on his son’s hands (I remember exactly there were TVs on his hands) so that he wouldn’t hit…

…anyone at school

This movie was somehow perhaps teenage or parodic. High school setting, most likely American. It was released around 2010. I can’t really remember much, but there was a very vivid scene of a father dressing his son with a kinescope TV on both hands, and the son is angry and it seems he was wearing a plaid shirt at the same time. Help please, been wondering for years what this movie is 🙁

A girl is being dragged by her hair from the car

Help to find the film!

Trying to remember the film with the scene, where a girl is being dragged by her hair from the car at full speed.

The scene, as I get it, looked like this: a hand is stuck out of the car window at right angles, it holds the girl’s head above the ground as the car is moving.

I didn’t watch the film itself, but remember the scene from the trailer I saw many years ago. I could assume the film was of asian origin.

A movie where a road sign is stolen, which causes an accident

The film is old, from about 1980-1980. It seems like a comedy.

I remember only one scene from it. Night, road, a road sign falls at the turn. It was broken by two teenagers, 17-20 years old.
A car with an open top appears on the road - and, since there is no sign, it falls over the edge of the road at speed into the abyss.

Teens look at each other:
- Maybe we will return to the place?
- Come on, cool sign! Dragged!

The scene was episodic and did not affect the plot.

English is not my first language, so I apologize for any mistakes. And thanks in advance for your help!

Hitman love movie

I remember seeing a movie between 2014-2018. It was probably on Netflix or redbox.  A girl working at a grocery store falls in love with a guy who is a hitman/assassin. He ends up reading her dairy/journal and finds a list of people she wishes were dead. Slowly the people start to dissappear and she finds that he is taking them out one by one.  They ended up in the last scene in a field burying a body while the girl is holding their new baby. Hopefully someone can help. It’s been driving me crazy trying to find it. Mr.right is all that pops up in Google and that’s definitely not it.

The film about a professional fraudster

The movie was filmed around the 1980s: a crook hires 3 crooks to cheat the same crooks. it seems the main character and director of the film is one man.

The crook raised by his uncle (the uncle had a noticeable buckle on his belt). He hires three crooks to deceive other crooks. The scam succeeds. Deceived fraudsters buy hectares of land in the desert dearly after hearing that a shopping center will be built there. The real estate agency is fake, the blueprints for the construction site are fake too.
Hired and subsequently deceived scammers: a cool beautiful bright blonde, a brunette programmer, a tennis player – handsome gigolo. The blonde has a beautiful sports car and boasts that she was paid a thousand dollars for one night.

In the finale, the protagonist imitates his own murder using his uncle’s invention. To do this, he creates a supply of his own blood in the refrigerator.
I remember the phrase addressed to the uncle: “each of your next wife is younger and more beautiful than the previous one.”

I remember another phrase: “a cool fraudster will make you see what was not”

Man in rowboat records mental images to 8mm cine film

TLDR; Man on a boat holds a one-hand 8mm cine tape camera to his head, and transfers mental images to the tape using psychic powers.

I think I watched this in the 80s – probably a 60s film. I can only really remember one scene, but it’s a pretty standout scene.

Style of the outfits and boat were very Cambridge / Oxford boating, but the scene may have been on a London lake.

I think the man was gay and persecuted for being so which lead him to take actions to punish his tormentors.

The cine camera looked something like this:

post-1976 King Kong TV commercial of girl in his hand eating candy

As a huge Kong-phile, I’ve been trying to find a TV commercial I remember seeing shortly after the release of the 1976 King Kong film. I don’t know exactly when it was released, but it seemed to air constantly for a good while, sometime in the mid to late 1970’s.
It simply featured a woman in a white dress simulating Fay Wray, sitting in what I believe was a mechanical hand from the 1976 Kong film. She’s eating some sort of national brand chocolate candy, Hershey kisses, M&M’s, or it could have even been Bon Bon ice cream chocolate balls, I can’t specifically remember. The entire commercial was her lying in the hand eating the candy while Kong grumbled, and I remember at the end she looks up and says something like “Calm down, big boy”.

Cop falls for crazy lady

This movie was from the ninety’s, i think. I can only remember two details. 1st is a cop who falls in love with this crazy blonde criminal who he is supposed to be in charge of, and they end up going on the lamb together. The 2nd is that the movie ends with a police chase where cops end up shooting and killing the ex-cop in a truck, and the woman getting out of the truck and killing herself right after.

A man who needs to catch a flight to Brazil with his gf, shenanigans ensue

I am trying to recall a movie title and my google searches aren’t producing much useful.

So I have the following criteria:

1. The opening theme song is “Give me Just a Little More Time” by the Chairmen of the Board (and it is their version). The graphics involve a small cartoon man hanging off a clock, jumping between the hands, stuff like that.

2. The movie came out prior to 2003. The Internet was not a thing here, nor were cell phones common. I’d even place the date earlier. Early 90s?

3. The plot: a guy who works at an airline ticket counter is at his last day at work. He has a flight to Brazil to catch that very night. He is going to embark on this trip with a woman he has been seeing who is married/involved with a guy who is Bad News. A subplot is a radio show where they call you up, and ask you questions about a maze (you answer “left” and “right” to a sequence of questions) and you get money if you win. One particular scene is this man gets the right answers and can’t give his name because he is hiding out in the woman’s (or someone’s) house. After several misadventures he ends up on a flight, by himself, but instead of Brazil the flight is going to Lebanon. (When this movie was made it was still in a low-level war I guess?)

I know this is odd but it’s been bugging me for a while now.

woman stealing clothes

hello, i remember only one scene and i hope to place it somewhere. seen around 2013-2016, color, english, movie or mini-series, was recent at its time. the scene portrayed a woman shoplifting at the mall. earlier she may have escaped from somewhere/someone, entered the mall wearing a tank top and shorts maybe, went through several stores stealing from each and then calmly left the mall fully dressed (jeans, work jacket, backpack and a cap/beanie) ignoring security chasing her and screaming. for years i was convinced that it was jessica from utopia but i rewatched utopia today and it’s not it. also the mall and clothing style had some 90s feeling so the plot may take place in the past.

Scene unrelated to the movie

So the only scene I remember is this guy goes to a strip club, and there is a table of guys speaking ill of the performers. Maybe something about how they have no feelings. Protagonist says that he can walk over and get a kiss with just a rose and not saying a word, which he does. She says, “welcome back” and then kisses him. I think he is wearing a grey turtleneck and looks like Tim Robbins?

It had very little to do with the movie. I want to say it was 90s action. Help please!

Fairly recent sci-fi western

There were a handful of people outside some sort of mine. The costumes (and setting, and budget for that matter) reminded me a lot of Firefly. There was some sort of explosion in the mine. A person ran out and was revealed to be a woman. Someone seemed to be surprised by this. There’s a man with a partially disfigured face (similar to Two-Face, but I think only the bottom of one side). There was a man that seemed to be the villain that looked like Jeff Fahey. The disfigured man knocked him to the ground and started beating on him. The scene seemed to change rather abruptly and there was a train speeding along and then a large silver/metallic man (Colossus from X-men) stepped on the tracks and tried to stop it.

This could have been either a movie to TV series, but I’d lean toward TV series. It was in English and I’d be very surprised if it was older than about 2000.

Desert Island Dancing

I don’t remember exactly when I saw it but it was probably some time in the 90’s when I was a little kid. It was an animated short (I think in color) and I don’t remember it having any dialog but instead just had sound effects and music.

I don’t remember the plot but I do remember it had to do with a guy being stranded on a desert island and about him dancing to music. Somewhere a long the way a skeleton shows up and they dance together. That’s all I remember unfortunately. For some reason it stuck with me all these years and I’d love to find it again just for curiosity’s sake.

Two friends kill drug baron with his

An American action movie released before 2000. I’ve seen it on a Russian TV channel when I was little kid, but it can be a new movie or some ancient from 1970th

Two friends – a tough white (possibly a cop) and his afro friend. They learn that a powerful drug has appeared on the street. In one of the first, a girl who seems to be involved in sports (running? or just school classes?) dies because of this drug.

There is a mafia boss behind the drugs. The drug lord lives in a wildly fashionable mansion. He has a bed in his office that hides in the wall. There’s an afro girl, who is his beloved or maybe a girl from escort he hires a lot. She also may be a sister, or maybe just a friend of a afro friend. Through her, friends learn that the boss is behind the distribution of drugs.

(this piece may be from another movie)
The friends begin to take revenge. Among other things, one of the key people in the syndicate named Luca, an Italian with a slicked hair with hair to his ears. They find out where he eats spaghetti every day. White friend pours laxative into the spaghetti and puts a bomb in the toilet cistern of the same establishment. Luka leaves to take a shit, flushes off the water – and BOOM happens!

Then they somehow still harm drug dealers. The boss realizes that the afto girl can be a spy and slaps her in the face.

Closer to the finale, the drug lord gathers potential partners to discuss the distribution of promising drugs. And the white man and the afro man cut off the telephone connection and go to storm the mansion.

When the assault begins, the boss blocks the exit from the conference room with iron doors, iron blinds fall on the windows and waits for reinforcements. But the hero his friend had found a warehouse of drugs in the house. They make respirators out of T-shirts and bluntly blow directly into the ventilation. All mafia bosses are killed.

As a result – the mafioso is dead, and the main characters are just ok.

Arms dealer shoots a hole through a car

I remember seeing the beginning of a TV movie at my grandparents’ house in the late 80s:

Two guys drive up to an industrial looking location. One guy seems like a fussy type who is really concerned about the car getting scratched. The other guy approaches some guys at another vehicle to make an illicit arms deal. The guy inspects the goods and says something like “No bullet is worth 20 bucks a pop”. One of the arms dealers points a gun at the car, where the fussy guy is wiping a spot, and blam! shoots a hole clean through the engine.
