Four people at a small cocktail party discuss hypthetical perfect murder, body then shows up in a trunk

Saw the opening of this movie on TV in the early to mid 1970s. Possibly a made-for-TV movie. Four people at an informal cocktail party, possibly in someone’s home, discuss how a perfect murder might be carried out. The conversation seems to be in the nature of a parlor game or thought experiment. There may have been men and women involved. No faces are seen. We hear only voices, and see drinks, cigarettes (maybe) being held.

The idea proposed is to compartmentalize the crime into separate tasks. To assign different parts of the murder four playing cards are used and drawn at random. Each card represents a different action to be taken and nobody knows what cards/actions the others have drawn. Each step, while being described, is depicted in a vague “flashback” style while the discussion continues. Again, no identities are known of either perpetrators or victim.

The steps are, to the best of my memory:

  1. Lure victim to murder scene

  2. Kill victim (a hand holding a revolver is shown firing the pistol)

  3. Load body into a trunk

  4. Ship trunk somewhere

Cocktail party concludes, fade to black.

On screen text: ‘X’ Months later: Hong Kong (maybe 8 months, or some other number)

Black fades and we see the trunk depicted in the hypothetical discussion on a loading dock.

That is all I saw of the movie.

Teen Comedy

I remember a gang of 4-6 people driving in a van and i also think it was one fat funny one. The thing i remember is they are on a miniature golf course (crazy golf) near the end of the movie. Mayby they hunt to get in time for something or find something in the whole movie because i had a feeling they run up to someone in the end in a building. Not sure about it. I saw the movie somtime between early 80:s to early 90:s on VHS.

Need help Escape Desert Town??

Hi guys ,been searching for this movie everywhere can’t seem to find it.its an older looking movie 80’s i think..

I saw it maybe 6 months ago streaming for free. I would describe it as a post apocalyptic dark comedy i guess.

Its about this young guy he has a van and he meets this girl as he is driving. he picks her up and they have sex a lot as they are on there road trip. they have sex in his van near the beach. and he basically tries breaking up with her. So she gets mad and punches him in the face and knocks him out.

He then wakes up chained to a bed. and she is wearing a wedding dress. i think they got married while he was passed out. and she shows him the wedding pictures. the town he wakes up in is run by some big pa guy that has a gun and kills anyone that tries to leave. the town is in the desert surrounded by mountains.

the young guy eventually escapes with another girl he ends up liking in the town. I thought the movie was called something like “welcome to boom boom city” but nothing came up.

hopefully you guys can solve the mystery lol. thanks.

90s Sci fi teen movie

Hi, there’s a movie I saw long time ago, but barely remember anything but some flashes.

Probably a American movie, there is a “nerd” boy trying to contact something in the sky with a machine he somehow created.

By some way, he and a bunch of 5 or 6 other teens, are in some kind of museum or something, they can see strange creatures behind the crystals.

Maybe at the beginning of the movie there is a party, I guess this kid travels somehow to the space with this group and became friends at the end.

Children trapped in snow

I think the movie is from the 90’s, I saw it in television around 2005 maybe?

Two children, (maybe siblings) an older boy and a younger girl must go to a near village to pick up some stuff, but on their way back home they get lost in a snowstorm.
A scene I remember strongly:
– they take refugee in a cave and decide to drink the alcohol they’re supposed to take home. They get drunk and sing and clap and fall asleep there

USB memory stick…

Hi movie gurus!

I have a challenge, I remember this film, but only the beginning. It was in a hotel, where a woman (maybe Angelina Jolie?) that must take some data from a hotelguest’s laptop. She put in a USB stick and it copied all data. Meanwhile the owner of the laptop gets distracted by someone.

Later they went to a hotelroom where they had some gadgets build in a wall to transfer the data. But I am not really sure I remember this part correctly.

Thanks!

Farm Theft!

So, in around 2010/11 (estimate) i used to watch a movie on video tape. I used to think it was called pets but now i have no idea! It was in colour, but i don’t remember any actors.

I remember that there was a family, with a teenage girl (ginger haired) and her little brother (geek). They lived on a farm. They always bickered cos the boy would steal things from his sister. then one day their parents go out, and they’re left home alone. Some thieves come (i think) to attempt to steal, so the siblings work together to get rid of them (I distinctly remember a machine they made to collect eggs to ping at them). they managed to catch them and the police came, and i remember people cried st the end! it’s a family movie! please help!!!!

Super battery

hi! I have been breaking my head about this:

searching for a movie, I only remember that there is a small battery, hidden inside a toy-puppet, sort of lego figure. Inside there is a powercell that has enough energy to power up big citys. Two people designed the powercell, one good guy that has it now. And one person that wanted to sell it to ‘bad’ people. In the end it gets blown up in a helicopter (it was stolen by some bad guys).

 

t.y.i.a.!

 

cheers

 

Sci fi film from the early 2000s

Hi there! I’ve been wanting to find this film for many years now, sadly I don’t remember much of it… It’s si fi, and it features a group of people travelling on a space ship, possibly to other planets but I’m not too sure. At some point, the main character gets imprisoned or locked in a cell (on the ship), but then the others from the group get into trouble and are forced to temporarily release him if he agrees to help them solve the problem they’ve ran into. I remember that when they open the door of his cellar he’s very dirty and has grown a long, shabby beard, he looks haggard and angry. I also remember the ending of the film: the main character (the one who was imprisoned and grew that beard) speeds away on a ship into space with two women. He’s smiling, clean shaven and smug (possibly managed to trick and get away from the people who imprisoned him and then demanded his assistance).

Really sorry for the scant detail! It must have been around 2000-2004 when I watched it. It’s in English.

Regretted Life Choices

Independent film. English language. Saw it on Showtime or HBO in 1994. Set in Victorian era. Most likely set in Ireland but could be New Zealand or Australia. Was in color. I don’t believe there were any cars in the movie until the last scenes and they were 1910 era vehicles. The town that was visited was a small port town.

A young aristocrat (university student) and his domineering fiance are on holiday in the country and a port town. They are somehow separated and he suffers some memory loss somehow and ends up on a farm. He becomes a laborer on the farm and eventually falls in love with one of the farmers daughters. He works there for quite a while and is very happy. He is content and has a wonderful, simple life.

Somehow his memory returns and for some reason he returns to the place where he was separated from his fiance…and finds her. He returns with her to his old life. It is obvious that she is a domineering shrew and he returns anyway.

Maybe 30 years later he and his wife are driving by the farm where he had worked while on another holiday. He recognizes a person he used to work with as they are delayed for a road repair. Actually, they recognize each other. He learns that the girl he loved died in childbirth with his child…and then he sees who could only be his son as an adult as part of the crew that is repairing the road. His wife is totally unaware of the impact this is having on him.

He realizes he would have been much happier staying on the farm rather than returning to what was familiar and what was expected of him. The film ends with him looking over his shoulder at his son as they drive away.

I don’t remember the title

So I saw this movie when I was a child in one of those casettes for dvds. It was about a little boy with his brothers (there were quite a lot) living in a poor family I remember the parents tried to leave them multiple times cuz they couldn’t raise them but this boy kept leaving a trail of bread. Also at one moment they go to a place like a castle where a monster lived. He had many daughters and he killed all of them in their beds because he thought they were the boys. One of the daughters helped them to escape together. Also I remember the boy had some magical boots who helped him escape by flying. He flew over a battlefield and one of the soldiers gave him a letter for the queen or king I can’t remember. It was a happy ending the boys were playing in the water in the end. Also I’m 99 percent sure the movie wasn’t english but I don’t know the language it was in. My guesses would be either french or greek.

MOVIE ABOUT A SUICIDAL MAN

(THIS MOVIE IS FROM ABOUT 2013 I THINK) THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT A MAN THAT USED TO WORK IN A PET STORE or supermarket, I don’t really recall, but I know he had a job that he was not pleased with, and his girlfriend dumps him. So he decides to go to his hometown to see his parents (mind you he was around 30 something). I think he had a gay brother or relative I don’t remember but he caught him drawing private parts of men in his notebook because he said it was helping him with his sexuality. He gets beaten by some bullies at school because of his relationship with a boy, he ends up wanting to kill himself and that is when the main character the 30 yo guy i mentioned before jumps in the water and tries to save him, but that’s when the movie stopped loading and don’t recall much anymore.

I can describe this whole film but I cannot find it anywhere

So a very mentally ill man and another male who was dressed as a woman. She played a kind of parent to the ill man, babied him loads. They break into a house and kill the mother and tried to take her two daughters,  although the film for ages makes out as if the daughters escaped. This turned out to be an escape mechanism in the form of dissociation. The mentally ill guy is using the girls and dressing them up as dolls, torturing them etc. The girls eventually escape and they are running through a field towards a cop car, they think they are saved and suddenly an ice cream truck pulls up. The two psychopaths hop out of the truck and shoot the cop and drag them back into captivity. They endure some more torture and actually finally escape

flying horse movie

well friends I am back with another movie memory.

Here’s this movie about a non-animation movie about a flying horse, where I remember a short scene, and a production still.

A group of soldiers (infantrymen) are looking at a hill/mountain and suddenly one holding a bino shouts “There it comes(or something similar)”; then I see something white charging down the hill/mountain. The camera zooms and it is a horse with wings and appears in extreme fury. What happens later that the horse reaches ground level and then goes in flight mode, but the cadets attempt it to lasso it down, perhaps only planning a capture not slaughter.

Now this maybe a dubbed Asian movie as the picture quality was dull reddish, and I could not see the faces of the cadets, but they were not whites. I have tried to look for non-anime movies based on flying horses and receiving data only on racehorses or war planes. Kindly help.
