Boss texts that she’ll fire him if he kisses his date

So, I think this is a TV show. I saw it long ago, maybe between 2007 and 2015. Vague, I know. It was colour.

So, there’s this guy and a girl in a bar. The girl is a nerd and is wearing black glasses. She’s a pudgy. The guy is thin. Both are white. So, the boss of the guy, is keeping an eye on him while they’re talking. I think she likes him, or maybe was dating him before.

Then, the girl and the guy stand on their back to each other and start walking forward.. they’re playing some kind of a game. The guy asked, “Why are we doing this?”, the girl says, “I don’t go out much.”

In the next scene, they are talking and he gets a text from his boss, who is observing them from a distance. The text says, “If you kiss her, you’re fired.” The girl leans in to kiss her and he moves away. She is really upset and runs away crying. I guess, she felt that he rejected her.

Can you tell me which show this is?

Guy kisses girl out of pity

Hi,

So I saw a scene from this movie, it was somewhere in between 2007 and 2012. It was an English movie. They had an American accent. So, a guy and a gir were sitting on a table at the restaurant and talking about something. It was not a date, I think. I think they were discussing something important. While the guy is talking, he suddenly looks at his arm and sees the girl stroking it. Then he looks at her and she looks desparate. So, he kisses her, out of pity, I think. Then, she says “Thanks.” Both the characters were white and looked like they were in their twenties.

Please let me know if you know.

1970s or 1960s funky flick involving a surreal cavern with forearms/hands jutting from the floor and trying to grab the protagonist

I have this weird memory of a foreign movie (?) I saw on Finnish TV back in the early 1980s.

The scene I can recall is one with the protagonist — or possibly two protagonists (male and female) — escaping a surreal place which has a smallish cavern/basement with dozens of forearms/hands jutting straight up from the floor (!), spaced tightly enough it is hard to walk through them. While the protagonist(s) are walking/running across this field of arms/hands, the said arms are reaching for their legs and trying to grab them.

These strange disembodied limbs may not necessarily be human arms/hands but maybe something artificial, akin to robotic arm/hand mechanisms wearing long (yellow? white?) rubber gloves.

As I recall, the styling of the scene was somehow very 1970s “disco funky” (the cavern could have had a disco ball hanging from the roof or a small stage at the side, or heavy velvety drapes) or 1960s surreal comedy tropey and resembled either the 1978 Goldie Hawn / Chevy Chase / Dudley Moore comedy thriller Foul Play, or maybe something that would happen in an episode of Get Smart. The last time I checked Foul Play, I could not find such scene in it, though.

Was it in English – or an Anglo-American production at all? I think so, but cannot be sure. Could possibly have been French as well.

Science-fiction movie involving a rocket launch and a “ghost” woman

I have been looking and asking about this movie for nearly 4 years since I started here and still no luck yet unfortunately.

Nevertheless, I will never give up and I will try again no matter what.

The movie looks old, possibly from the 1980’s, 90’s, or 2000’s, I’m not sure. It’s an American movie in English I saw on TV in color twice in my adolescence.

In the movie, a scientist befriends a beautiful blonde woman wearing white who looks transparent and has ghost-like powers of sorts that only he can see.

He has a rival scientist whom he forces to cancel some sort of launch. At one point, the rival scientist was seen with his driver holding his enemy and his friend at gunpoint unaware that it was being recorded on camera. Then when the rival scientist is at some conference and after the good scientist and his friend escape with the help of his imaginary, ghost-like “girlfriend”, some reporters show the footage involving the gunpoint to everyone and they mention at one point that he actually “discovered New Jersey.”

At the end, after the rival scientist has been arrested, the good scientist closes his eyes and uses a special somewhat magic, space stone to turn his beautiful, somewhat ghost-like, imaginary woman girlfriend whom he is in love with into a real woman at the end of the movie.

man gets terrorized on road trip

I saw this movie on TV around 2000, so it was in the 1990s or possibly 1980s. A man is breaking up with his wife and clearly does not want it to end. He goes on a road trip and gets terrorized by another man. I can’t remember if the man doing the terrorizing was having an affair with the wife or if she hired him to kill her husband. I think she hired him. At the end he gets even with his wife.

Movie taking place in South America

From what I remember, the movie had John Rhys-Davies playing the role of a priest.

Scenes I remember from it:

A South American girl with American parents visits a kind man wearing glasses with a magic flute that when played can bring a statue to life or change a mask’s appearance. Quite the artist too. One of his men scares the girl as some kind of silly joke with a mask. Eventually, the girl learns how to play a flute well.

Kind man is arrested under false pretenses that he “kidnapped” the girl.

A bad guy in white pretends to be a good guy beating up his minion who tried to feed something to the girl not meant for kids as pointed out by her mom in the marketplace. The minion also has the girl’s father take the blame for the destruction of the Jesus Christ statue during a mass ceremony.

Priest accuses girl of being a liar when she said she saw him last night doing something she thinks is bad when in fact, he was burying a statue as he had later shown to the parents.

Girl and two men go on a quest to find a magical golden disc which the bad guys tries to dispose of constantly until it kills and sucks him up wholly.

Building demolition documentary turned into comedy short

I saw this colour short on TV in the late ’70s or early ’80s but I don’t remember if it was part of a longer show like an anthology or perhaps one of the guest shorts they used to have on SNL. It’s probably American judging from the setting and language.

The original film is a static shot looking up a busy city street that documented the explosive demolition of a multi-story office or apartment building several blocks away.

Someone took this film and dubbed his voice over it, pretending to be the director of a dramatic movie. As pedestrians wander in and out of frame, the “director” yells stage directions to them to make it seem like their movements are part of a script. At one point he yells at someone that they’ve missed their cue; some guy hurriedly crosses the street while looking at the camera, only to be told, “that’s it, you’re fired pal … you’ll never work in this town again.”

The final punchline is when the “director” decides he doesn’t like the composition of the shot and yells at the crew to get rid of a particular building in the background, at which point said building collapses in a cloud of dust.

It was very creative and I’d love to see it again, if anyone can name it or point me to the video itself (my google-fu found wanting).

Anyone remember this one?

I saw this movie on TV around 1996, so I’m not sure if it was a TV movie or a box office movie. It starts off with a bunch of terrorists attacking some kind of workplace and shooting people. However, a group of robotic (I think) soldiers descend on the building and start shooting the terrorists. In the aftermath, I remember a guy saying, “The governor is pissed; Washington wants to know what the hell is going on!” Does this sound familiar?

Dystopian Pandemic TV Movie

This might be too obscure and I don’t remember a lot of details, but here goes nothing.

Very grim dystopian future. There’s a deadly incurable disease. The government is marking the infected somehow and locking them up in a hospital or section of the city. The main characters are some kind of freedom fighters. The main male lead is a black man. He is infected and locked up. His girlfriend breaks in and has sex with him, but has to leave him behind because he’s been marked. I think it was a TV movie or TV mini-series. It was aired in the late 1980s or early 1990s. It was in color. I saw it in America. It’s in English.

Trying to identify a older movie that I’ve seen only once when I was a teen and I was born in 1986 so I have a blemish memory when I saw…

…this movie.

  • 3-4 adults go inside a house and I can’t remember why
  • I believe there was color to the film but I know I seen this movie on VHS.
  • This old woman was in a wheelchair being wheeled by her granddaughter or help.
  • The old lady was a murderer.
  • one of the guys head was slammed shut in a window and he still began talking as if he wasn’t dead or was then a ghost I should say.
  • I remember one of the guys wore glasses out of the 3-4.
  • I thought this movie was called house on something or house something but I can not find the movie I’m looking for.
  • please help!

Movie Trailer from 2020/2021

Trying to identify the movie from a trailer I’ve seen multiple times over the past year or so. Hopefully I’m not combining multiple movies, but here’s the main points I remember from the trailer:

  • Couple visiting empty seaside town
  • Old man (thought it was Vincent D’Onofrio but not not sure) repeatedly tells them a story about something that happened in the town…maybe his story changes during the final telling?
  • Close up of clock changing time (I know that the name of the movie was a mystery to me several times I saw the trailer…but I had gotten the idea that maybe the title itself was a specific time [i.e. “6:30”] or something like that)
  • Nighttime, (on a dock?), the woman is standing alone and someone/something sneaks up behind her? Someone is watching and calls out to notify them of the danger

I think that’s all I have
