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!

WWII movie

Looking for a movie and I think it is from the 80s. American movie (in color) and I believe it is set in WWII. I thought Jeff Goldblum was in it but not sure.  I remember there was an American soldier and a Japanese soldier, and they were both stuck on an island. The Japanese soldier came over and beat him up a few times throughout the movie. I believe it was a drama/ suspense.

help me find the movie

I remember very little ((the film ended with the woman being locked somewhere. And only her eyes were visible through the cracks. And there was also a large guillotine in the film. And it moved like a pendulum. Hanging in some kind of castle from ceiling to floor

Pls help to find movie

A couple moves into a new house, and something strange starts happening there. It’s as if someone lives there. Like in the basement. Or coming out of the basement. They have a room with mannequins dressed in clothes. In one scene, they drink wine and listen to music. They have large doors. There seems to be a dog. Someone dies in the end. I’m not entirely sure, but the main characters are quite popular actors. It’s not the movie ‘The Barbarians.’ Please help me find it.

circa 1970 science fiction movie, space alien, stop-action disembowelment.

Science fiction B movie, circa 1970 plus or minus a few years.   In a scene toward the end of the movie, a space alien in human form stopped the car, stepped out, and his intestines fell out of his abdominal cavity (in a close-up, stop-motion). He staggered back to the car.  A female human was a passenger in the car.  He was trying to escape the authorities, not sure why the female was with him.  Saw this movie as a late-night feature on TV, half asleep, at around the age of 11 or so, and it creeped me out for many years afterward.   May have been one of the 5o0 or so movies with John Carradine.  In English (dubbed?).  Could have been color, but I saw it on a B&W set.
