Man rips out his eyes in front of a crowd. (A church congregation?)

I’m guessing this movie (or TV show?) is from the 50s or 60s.  Probably black and white (but I’m not sure, because I saw it on a black and white TV, in around 1980!).  This must have been the end of the story, which is the only part I caught:  A man walks into a big room with a big seated crowd (seems like it was probably a church congregation or something similar), and somehow they’re aware of whatever bad stuff he’s been up to (I don’t know what that is).  The crowd starts chanting something like “rip them out! Rip them out! Rip them out!” and the man rips out his own eyes with his hands.  Anyone know it?

Edited foreign film about a tumultuous love relationship

I saw a foreign film many years ago, I think it was French. It seemed to be from maybe the early ’60s. It was in color, and there was a scene that may have taken place in a bedroom with an attractive woman in a fairly close shot, like an upper body or a head shot. I think she had shoulder-length blond hair. If I remember correctly, there was an unseen man–in voiceover only–speaking harshly to the woman, talking about her despising him and cheating on him, something along those lines. There may have been some nudity or very strong language in the scene, because it had several cuts in it, and I think parts of the man’s monologue repeated.

Sorry it’s not much to go on.

Kid returns

Looking for a movie or tv show about a boy who went missing and returns like 5-10 years later and looks the same with no memory of where he was. he soon finds that he has some weird powers and a cute girl with black hair is protecting him from some evil force. Early 2000’s to mid 2000’s movie. American.

Apollo program dramatization featuring the postal covers scandal

I remember a scene from a movie about the early days of the space program, most likely about the Apollo missions, that featured briefly the Apollo 15 astronauts and focused on the fallout over the postal cover scandal (they took postal covers up with them to sell later).

I was sure this was HBO’s From the Earth to the Moon, but their Apollo 15 episode focuses on other, more positive parts of the mission.

Some details:

  • I’m 99% sure it was dramatized, but it may have been one of those half-dramatized documentaries.
  • It seemed to be in the same vein as The Right Stuff and From the Earth to the Moon. Perhaps a little less prestige and more low budget.
  • It featured a scene of the Astronauts looking sheepish at a very minimal celebration, showing that their received much less attention than the other crews as a result of the scandal.
  • It was probably made in the 90s or 00s.

80s Post apocalyptic movie

What I remember of the movie: I saw it in the early 80s, but maybe it was made late 70s. Post apocalyptic, water is the most valuable and rare resource. The scene that always sticks out in my mind is a woman with really frizzy hair stabbing an elderly stout man in the abdomen with a metal device she wears on her knuckles, kinda like brass knuckles, but with sharp pointy things sticking up.

I know it’s not any of the Mad Max movies (as I own them all). Thank you for your help 🙂

Guy wakes up next to dead woman

I remember watching this movie in the early 2000s on tv. I don’t remember anything except this one scene.

the main character wakes up next to a woman in his bed. He leaves the room, comes back and notices she hasn’t moved. He puts his hand on her shoulder and turns her over. He sees that she is dead and has something tied around her throat. He panics and decides he needs to move her body back to her apartment which is down the hall from his apartment. He picks up her body and starts to head towards the front door.
someone knocks and he lays her body on his couch facing the back to make it look like she was just sleeping. He answers the door and talks to the person. He shits the door and picks the body back up. Another knock at the door scares him and he drops the body. He slides her into his closet, sits her up and closes the door. The person comes in and stand right in front of the closet. The closet doors starts to open but the guy shuts it immediately. The person that knocked leaves. The original guy opens the closet and her body falls out. He picks her back up by placing his arms under her arms. He drags her body into her apartment and gets her on the bed. Someone knocks on her door and he hides under the bed. The person comes into the bedroom and panics. I don’t know why this scene has stuck with me for so long. But I would love to figure out the title of this movie so I can finally finish it.

The movie is about an orphan, I think

 I watched about half an hour of it, so I don’t remember much. I believe it was released between 2000-2014. It tells the story of a 10-year-old boy, possibly an orphan or living in an orphanage. I don’t recall how he ended up there; it’s the beginning of the film. The actor playing him is probably quite popular. The boy narrates about his parents’ youth, how they met, ended up on a rooftop, and slept together. The girl found out she was pregnant with the boy but didn’t tell the father. I don’t remember anything else. Please help 🙏🏻😢

Sniper movie late 2000s early 2010s maybe?

Hmmm, my comment didn’t get posted for some reason, here we go again!

The movie starts with a sniper shooting what seems to be random targets out of a van. The targets are (from what I can remember) A woman and her daughter, a man with flowers and/or a ring, a woman with a ring and/or flowers, and a guy with a popcorn or hotdog stand. He makes the shots then gets in the van and drives away. The police are called in and one of the main characters, a female FBI or Police officer contacts another sniper she knows, the other main character. She talks to him to consult on how the shot was made and why the bad sniper did it. Later you find out that the targets the sniper killed were actually all made for very specific reasons and weren’t just random targets.

Scary Santa-Claus movie from 90s

Hi all, I watched this on a TV some afternoon in the 90s. I think it was aimed for teenagers, yet it freaked me out a bit.

One protagonist was a man playing Santa Claus in the stores. At some point he enters the train and he is alone in the wagon, apart from a single passenger in a hat, face invisible. He says sth like “I don’t want to end up alone” and some creepy voice answers “you already did” and the single passenger turns out to be a skeleton :O Both phases were not exactly like that in English, as I watched it dubbed.

Another scene I remember is when he was on duty playing Santa Claus, he asks a boy on his lap “what is your name” to which the boy rudely answers “Jack the Ripper, you fat man!” and tears his fake beard off. Another boy then runs home yelling that “[Name] torn Santa Claus beard off!”.

Long shot, I am aware 🙂 Thanks everyone!

Martial Arts movie

I posted this before a few years back but never really got any responses, this site has some real sleuths on it so hoping I can get some hits this time.

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.

Weird Movie

  1. What is the name of the movie where a group of friends went to a house or cabin for the weekend or Getaway, when they take a can of drinks from the fridge, the drink replace itself and when they try to leave they cant leave, they would either end up in the Attic, the Basement or the Bedroom of the House, It was about 5 of them but only one survived and she was able to leave in the end

Life raft scene but not a life raft movie

I’m looking for a film which starts with a scene of two or possibly three US military personnel in a life raft, I believe after bailing out of an aircraft. They have run out of food and the main character is fantasizing out loud about what he would like to eat when they are rescued (a steak and a baked potato I think). Soon after, they are rescued and the next shot is of a steak and a baked potato on a plate…but being given to another character than the one who was fantasizing about it; instead he is given a poached egg floating in milk by a nurse. They are all in the hospital and she explains to him that since he gave his ration to the other characters, he is not ready to eat solid food yet. This sequence was maybe five or ten minutes at the beginning of the film, I don’t remember any details of the rest except it was about his getting used to civilian life after the military.

Other information: The film was American, in colour, probably from the late 1950s or early 1960s. I saw it on television in Canada, probably in the mid-1980s. It is not a more recent film such as Against the Sun.

Dog cartoon with duck

All I can remember from this cartoon in color was 2 dogs dressed like hunters, one big and one small trying in vain to hunt a little green duckling with an annoying laugh. The rest is blank because the power went off after that for 3 days a few years ago.

Like in my previously solved post, if the name can be identified, please let me know if the full cartoon itself is available online to watch too and so on……

Note: Since I mentioned the duckling being green earlier, therefore, it is safe to assume that it’s not something Daffy Duck related.

Bear cartoon with chicken

All I can remember is part of this cartoon in color where 2 bears, one big but dumb and one small but smart try to catch and eat a chicken, but to no avail.

If the name can be identified, please let me know if the full video can be viewed online in excellent HQ quality somewhere too.

I tried on YouTube, but to no avail since there were hardly any results matching my search. Not even Google helped much other than the fact that my country is suffering a temporary wifi connection problem for a few days until resolved.

Movie with two men and a Little Boy

What is the name of the movie where two men went to a House and kill a little boy parents and his mother was begging them not to kill her but they still kill her and took away the little boy, they were going to bring him to someone and they were driving for most of the movie and one of the man, the younger one was getting annoyed by the little boy and wanted to hurt him but the older one keep stopping him, in the end the police stopped them, the two men died, one shot himself at the end, the other one got injured or something, the boy was ok in the end, the police came

Middle East Smart Action Movie

I’m looking for the title of a movie I saw about 5 years ago. It was made it the last 10-20 years.

A more or less typical terrorist organization – investigation – action film. The few details I remember:

– starts with an explosion on the street-facing part of a restaurant by a plaza. Slow motion,  fountain on the plaza, a kid on a bicycle.

– the film ends with the exact same scene, the camera follows one of the main characters from inside of the building and it ends up on the terrace of the restaurant by that plaza just before the explosion happens.

– there is a young local lady who develops some friendship /  relationship with the main character, if I remember correctly. Her little brother is the one on the bike, who ends up by the fountain at the end. It might be the reverse and the little sister of an older brother. The point is, the young one is always on the bike and ends up in the wrong place at the end. The older one (or their parents?) turn out to be associated with a terrorist org.

– the location is Middle East, maybe Iran or Iraq?

It was a pretty high budget movie, I can’t believe that I haven’t been able to find it for years.

Thanks much for any help in advance!
