    I only remember a scene from this film. I saw it as a kid in the 1970s and it felt like it was a 1960s or 1970s comedy. It was set in Ancient Rome, the scene I'm thinking of was probably the end of the movie, and increasingly slapstick as the camera pulls away. The scene may have been sped up, like a Benny Hill skit, but not as fast. As part of the comedy, someone was running into a fat man and bouncing off his belly with a comical boing or bass drum boom sound. One of the actors might have been Roy Kinnear (the comedian, not his son Rory who has been in recent Bond movies) although I could have that confused with the episode of the Goodies where he is the Roman Emperor. I am child of the 1970s and this is a hole in my entertainment memory I would be grateful to have filled! Reply

    I believe this one starred Clint Eastwood, so it's definitely not from any recent western.

    The scene is outside, somewhere on a hill. I'm thinking there was a nearby tree or something. The movie's protagonist is doing something, probably farmwork, when he is approached by four men, all on whom are on horseback.

    They talk for a bit, and a gunfight ensues. As is classic for the genre, our gunslinger shoots down all four pretty quickly before they can get a single shot off. Another character comes up and is surprised the gunslinging hero was fast enough to outshoot four people. The hero responds by pointing out a couple of things he observed, assessing the overall experience of the men he just shot, taking in the type and position of holsters they were wearing and such. Then he quickly figured out who would have the fastest draw and shot them all in order, from highest threat to lowest.

    For what it's worth, I believe this was some kind of second-act scene. There was still a lot to the movie after this scene, at least.

    That's all I've got. Reply

      The Quick Draw page mentions Eastwood shooting four men in one draw in the Dollars Trilogy. Unfortunately it doesn't say which of the three films that happens in, and neither do the films' pages, but assuming it's the same incident that at least narrows it down some.

      EDIT: But if they're talking about this scene from A Fistful of Dollars, it doesn't seem to be the same incident after all.

      Yes, sadly that is not the scene I'm looking for.

      That's The Outlaw Josey Wales. It's probably the most iconic scene in the movie.

      (It's even on the Quick Draw page, I just didn't keep looking after I found what I thought was the answer.)

    This is a live-action movie from the late-90s/early-mid '00s, I think. From what I recall, it's about a Shakespearean actor who typically plays female roles, but is replaced by a female actor (I think it was set around the time when women started performing on stage, rather than just men). The one scene I remember is them practising the scene from "Othello" where Desdemona is murdered. The male actor, I think, performs the role first, with the typical swooning and exaggerated death; however, someone (the director?) complains it isn't realistic. The female actress performs next, making the death scene realistic (screaming, fighting off Othello, etc.). Not much to go on, but I know it was a fairly mainstream movie (rented it from the video store). Reply

    There was this movie that was in American theaters a while back. It was animated, and about a boy, and as far as I could tell from the trailers there was no spoken dialogue. There was music, though. I was looking forward to going to see it here in Sweden, but it looks as if it won't be in theaters, so I need your help finding out what it was called. Reply

      Do you remember what the boy looked like? Any of the things he was shown doing in the trailer?

      How long ago did this movie come out?

      It came out in the USA earlier in 2016, I think. The boy was walking around, looking at people. Jut to be clear—the visual style was very unusual.

      EDIT: Never mind, I found it. It's called Boy and the World.

    I'm not entirely sure if this is a film or a TV show, but I remember channel surfing one evening and found this scene: A man is outside, perhaps in someone's rather large backyard. He is seated on a bench in front of a piano. There are lots of people watching him. The scene takes place at night, and there are tiki torches (?) lit around the backyard/courtyard. Everything is going well, until suddenly, the man's right hand freezes, and a Scare Chord is emitted (I think). The camera is now close up on the stiff right hand, where the viewer can see a ring on the man's finger. The ring has a dark, possibly black, gemstone in the center of it. It could be possible that the ring is causing his hand to freeze. It looked like the scene was slowly fading to another scene or a flashback or something, but about that time is when I changed the channel. The movie looked pretty old, probably from the 60's or 70's, and was in full color. What is this movie/show? Reply

      The Mephisto Waltz, maybe?

      Hmmm...it looks like it could be, but I couldn't find a ring on the guy's finger in the trailer. Do you know if that scene occurs in the movie?

      It’s been a long time since I watched it. I barely remember most of it (I kind of got bored with it). The main thing I remember is a masquerade party scene in which someone’s walking a dog with a human-faced mask on it. But the “demonically possessed pianist” trope has been done a bunch of times. The Mephisto Waltz was probably the most high-profile from that era.

      Bump.

      Bump.

      Gettin' bumpy over here.

      Bump. If anyone can actually confirm that it is indeed The Mephisto Waltz, then I may close this once and for all.

      Two thoughts, both very tentative as I haven't seen either one of the films in its entirety.

      It looks like it might not be The Mephisto Waltz. I scanned through the film, and it doesn't look like a scene like that occurs. During the masquerade party scene Bananaquit mentions, there are basically no shots of the main character's hands on the piano, and no freezing hand as in the OP. There's an outdoor party scene later, but without any piano at all. I didn't notice a ring at any point.

      I have another suggestion that's an even greater stretch: the 1960 version of The Hands of Orlac has a concert scene in which the performer stops playing after he hallucinates that he is wearing gloves. What's interesting is that there's a different scene with a black ring (the character tries his old ring on after a hand transplant, and is upset that it no longer fits). Both of these are rather off from the situation in the OP — but whatever the real answer is, I wonder if it might have been influenced by Orlac. The 1960 film is the third of three versions, but all of them are in black-and-white.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Maso Tey! I don't think it's The Hands of Orlac, though. This was definitely in color, and the concert was outdoors.

      Bump.

      Bump.

      BUMP!

      Bump.

      Anyone?

      Savages? Or the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby?

      I don't think it's Gatsby, and there's not enough info on the internet to determine if the scene occurs in Savages. You didn't happen to see these films yourself, did you?

      I did, but it’s been a while (since high school in the case of Gatsby).

      Bump.

      How long ago did you see it.

      Man, I dunno, maybe 6-8 years ago? It was a long time ago, but the film looked like something from the 60's or 70's.

      Bump.

    I remember an old fire safety video that was shown in Elementary school, back around 2002-04, about a bunch of kids who trespass onto a guy's property. Basically, they enter the house and note how dusty everything is, how there are rags scattered about, that the guy has a space heater, stuff like that. So then one kid finds a box of Count Chocula cereal, which activates a hidden doorway, leading to the discovery of a Friendly Neighborhood Vampire , whom they leave with a fire safety instruction video. We watch the Vampire watch the video (One scene recommends calling for help, at which point he starts howling like a wolf), and the kids come back later to find that not only has the vampire made his house safer, but he also joined Transylvania's Fire Department. Does this sound familiar? Reply

      Nothing? At the end, the Vampire has to go to Frankenstein's Castle, as per his new job.

    I saw part of a movie on TV two or three years ago, and I chiefly remember it for one moment of Black Comedy. I think the overall plot was something to do with a group of siblings coming back to their old home town to stay with their parents for a while. In the scene I remember, the setup is that their father has this very old, sickly dog, and one of his sons is concerned for its well-being and wants the father to have it euthanized, which the father refuses to do. The father is fond of feeding the dog treats by hand, so one day the son surreptitiously replaces the dog treats with poisoned ones. He sees his father coming to give the dog its treats, and seeing how much affection the man and the dog show each other, has a last minute change of heart and tries to distract his dad so he can get rid of the poisoned ones and replace them. While this is happening, one of the poisoned treats falls to the floor and the dog of course immediately eats it. Reply

    American movie, where there is a very large luxury house at the sea. A lady who lives there is married, and her husband abuses her. She decides to leave, and throws her ring in the toilet. And at one point she pretends she's drowning. Then she goes away, and begins a new life in a different state. She meets a bearded man, but she's reluctant because of her past. She also has a blind mother whom she visits. The original man finds out she lives, and goes after her (also meets the blind mother), and finds her. Reply

    Live action film/musical about a guy who's performing and his girlfriend and they're alternating between mushiness and angst (or something) and there's one scene where another girl is telling Girlfirend that when Boyfriend gets up on stage he will forget all about her and go after other people. There is also a scene where a bunch housewifey women sing (or at least lipsync) to 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot', and part of the number is them singing the song in church and part of it is them beating their husbands.One of the main character's names began with a D. Reply

      Something about this reminds me of Rock of Ages, but I can't remember for certain if any of this is actually in it.

      Definitely not the Rock of Ages stage musical ('Hit Me With Your Best Shot' was performed by a German real estate apprentice and an American community activist in c. 1980's workout gear) - but the 2012 film adaptation had a musical number featuring religiously conservative women singing 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' in a church. Also the main guy's name is 'Drew Boley,'

    I have this memory of an animated film (could have been a TV show) that I saw a bit of when I was younger. I remember a creature that MIGHT have been a koala, and he (I think it was a he) had no idea where his parents were. They'd been missing for a while, and the animation then shows what looked like animal slave labour underground and the koala-thing's parents were down there as workers or prisoners or something and they needed rescuing (as the animation moved underground I remember there was a worm). I think the plot was the koala-thing setting off to rescue them. No-one else has heard of this, and now I think about it it could have been a dream, but I've always wondered what was going on and what happens next, and because I know nothing about it I've never been able to find out. Do any of you remember this? Reply

    ...with some Mel Brooks-esque humour like random anachronisms and homages to films like Titanic, such as in one scene when a female character used an axe to free the male protagonist off a post which he was tied on. Another scene had an attractive woman being filmed on by a bunch of males, with one brandishing what appears to be a modern camcorder. A dubbed version of it was aired on GMA News TV in the Philippines some time ago. Reply

    I watched it in 2001 but the movie was 60s, 70s or early 80s. I remember seeing a film about time travel, Agroup of scientists use a "claw" or "footprint" of a "lizard like" humanoid that lived among dinosaurs to fix the "position in time" and go back in that time... After some time there they kill a Tryranosaur Rex (don't remember if it was and accident or not), they try to come back and the Present is ruled by those "lizard" creatures... Quickly they defeat it and they manage to go back to the T-Rex time and kill the humanoid-lizard (or not kill the Trex, can't remember), in the end they come back to their original time and everything is fine.

    It's "vibe" is like 'The Time Travellers' but it is NOT, nor 'A Sound of Thunder', 'Journey to the Center of Time', any 'The Land That Time Forgot',

    Hi guys, I was hoping you guys could help me find out this movie i watched quite a bit in the past but i lost it and can't remember the name of.

    Now from what i remember about the movie it had some teenage actor in a metal leg support help at the beggining of the movie a football member to win his match but the guy didn't say who he got the advice from and took the credit. Later after some talk with an asian man in some restaurant who later gives him a book that becomes a plot device later, is forced by the football person to go into a sewer like area as part of some trial of courage by going across a pipe and signing his name upon the other side and making it back before the water flushes down. Now while the kid got across and did sign his name, when he went back the water came and pushed him into the drain, to which he wakes up in the middle of some forrest being tended to by an anthromorphic rat ninja to which he scares the kid away to which the kid comes into contact with 4 other rat ninja's, an old man, and a female. The rats are apparently based off of the chinese elements (Fire, water, earth, wood, metal.) and the ninja who helped him earlier was of the water.

    My memory gets vague here so i cant provide anything else, i just know its an old movie in color that was on vhs. Can anyone give me help here please? Reply

There was a boy or girl, or both can't remember, who had a mother who went out with a man who was actually the Devil. The film revolved around horses. There was a scene in particular when the child saw the man in a room talking to the mother, or someone else I can't remember, and the man looked back at the child with a smirk and we could see the Devil's tail reflecting out of his pants. I know it's weird. The son or daughter, sorry can't remember, kept on telling the mother that he was the Devil, but she did not believe it, until the end of course. Please help, thanks! Reply

    So I saw part of a movie a while ago, and even though I have no real interest in watching it (being somewhat arachnophobic), I'm still curious as to what it was called. I know at least part of it took place in a jungle, and the spider itself wasn't seen much (at least in the part that I remember). There's a group that goes looking for it, and at one point, webs shoot out of the trees without the spider being seen and someone gets hit in the face. The only other thing I remember is that some researcher finds the spider's web and starts examining it, but the spider sneaks up on him (only showing the shadow). The group finds him tangled in the web later, and I think he tells them that the spider is using him as a host for baby spiders before he dies, kind of like in The Mist. I can't find it in the Giant Spider section. It might have been a SyFy movie, but I'm not sure. Reply

    This movie had an Indiana Jones-like character. He has a private collection of legendary artifacts in an apartment including the Fountain of Youth, and a sword that was alive, and could fight by itself. The one scene I remember was him buying a vase in an auction and destroying it so he could get a stone inside, and then got into a fight with his archenemy. Oh, and his old butler was in the Fountain for a while, as a young man, and when he stepped out of it, he reverted to his proper age. Reply
