    Omg

    Krian have read this entire thread of posts and everyone is right you ROCK:cool:, that is it and I am so glad to see that, I was afraid I made it up.

    Since you helped so much on that one I wonder if you can help with this other movie.

    Again when I was really little, I watched an animated movie I think by F.H.E and I think someone else asked about it. There was this guy who goes into this fairy world, with fairies, trolls, and this little Fawn creature half person half goat, that could shapeshift. At first in the show he could only shapeshift into small birds. Then the guy goes to fight this Shadow monster creature that lived in a tower, and he defeats it and then the fawn transforms into a really big eagle and carries the guy home. I really wish I could find this show.

    ok I have a movie I need help with

    Ok I watched this movie not to long ago about a few years about these highschoolers, who find this magnetic stone or something in this forest, and it gives them all these powers like one girl who goes bad had the ability to control peoples minds by telling them something, and the guy who beats her had the ability to control his body like he could make himself go deaf which is how he defeats her, he couldnt hear her commands. I am not sure what the other teens could do, I know one girl wore yellow I think, the colors they kids wore were noticable. I really need to start looking at the name of movies I watch LOL.

    My first thought is "The Craft", were they all females, or were there male characters as well?

    I Cant Remember..... Dang It.

    Ok I saw this really strange movie a long loooong time ago. I only remember these parts this girl is staying with this really sweet old couple (i dont remember how she came to be with them but she doesnt know them well) They have this big hot tub in their home and this girl swims in it all the time, the woman said her husband built it for their kids i also remember it having toys in it. Then the girl found heads in a cabinet downstairs and i think they were trying to eat her or atleast kill her or something. If anyone knows about this let me know PLEASE! LOL.

    Si-fi movie I've been looking for

    I've been trying to find this movie online for a while now, but since I only remember one scene, it's been hard. The movie must have been from the 80s or early 90s.

    The bad guys were a bunch of teenage-ish people who I can only describe as "future punk". I think they planned to zap themselves into a virtual world (which may or may not have involved destroying the physical world in the process). They needed the help of a genius hacker girl, who had written a big program, but it had been destoyed. They were forcing her to re-create the program in a very short time - so they gave her a computer that she could control directly with her brain via some sensors attached to her head.

    The main character (a guy) was trying to stop the evil teenagers and save the programmer girl.

    Is this enough for anyone to figure out the movie (or TV-movie)? It's been bugging me for years.

    Please help, been lookin for this for a while

    To anyone who may remember this movie and can tell me its title I would greatly appreciate it. Im sorry I don't remember very much of it but here is what I can recall.
    It was a fantasy type movie, and it had some kind of elfish like guy that could shoot arrows from his bow real fast. There were other characters Im sure that were part of his team or whatever, but he was my favorite. He or she wore a hood and the scene I remember the most was of him shooting arrows from a tree where he had managed to get into rather quickly.
    Im sorry i don't even remember the premise of the movie or anything, all I know is that I was amazed with this movie when I was a kid. Anyone have any clues?

    Thanks Doug:confused:

    That sounds like the "classic" fantasy movie 'Hawk the Slayer'. It was a bad British movie, but very entertaining. Great fun.

    HELP - What was this film called ??

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Back in the late 70's ? early 80's? a weird SF film was on the TV basically what I remember of it was:
    It was about a guy who was abducted by a kind of beam of light as he sat on the edge of his bed looking out of the window. He then found himself in a kind of transparent dome on what looked a kind of moonscape type planet with an audience of invisible aliens from then he seemed to experience all different transports in time one as a prisoner of war being marched through a frozen siberian land as a prisoner of ww2 ? germans.
    Then he was transported to a time when he was married to a very overweight girl.
    Then he was transported to a time when he was giving a seminar to hundreds of people about his alien captors where he gets shot by a crazed man who was a fellow captive on the frozen march.
    Then he is trnsported back to the alien planet to the domed enclosure where the aliens had peviously abducted and provided him with a famous female mate who was giving birth to his baby to the raptuous applouse of the invisible aliens !!!!
    Then he was told how the universe would end !

    DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER THE FILM ? WHAT WAS IT CALLED?

    I am trying desperately to remember the name of a movie I saw when I was a kid. It was ether on Nick or Disney, I don't remember which. It was about a furture world that is mostly desert and the people don't have much of anything. They live to gather in small city's and water is very scares. The air out side of the city's was poison I think, so no one could go out with out masks to protect them. I remember the world best because I thought it was so cool. The sand and the sky was orange and the kids that travel to find this Eden tiap paradise use wind surfing boards to get around. The boards had wheels on the bottom so they could roll on the sand. The only part of the story that I remember is that the main character, a teen age boy, runs away from home to find a place that every one says does not exist. The place is supposed to be like Edan, with lots of water and clean air. That is all that I can remember.

    If you know what movie this is PLEASE TELL ME!!!!!!!

    Need Help!!!!

    i have been searching the net for about one hour to find a movie i used to watch on tv. it was around the 90's

    all i remember is a mum and about 3 kids? in which the movie puts her house up for lease and the kids hate this idea
    so they try to earn enough money to stay by entering a competition.

    all i remember about the movie is a scene where the kids are at a shopping centre and there is an african american guy switching price labels on a leather jacket and the smallest of the children, being a girl, peaks under the dressing room door to catch him doing this. this man then takes the kids home and makes the girl and sandwich which she requests to be cut into squares....but as he does that requests for triangles instead and he then tries to playfully catch her and the mother comes home terrified of who the man is...

    that is all i remember!

    please help me think of the title or even one possible actor in this movie,
    its driving me insane!!!

    thank you so much for any help :) :)

    That sounds like it might be the movie of Kurt Vonnegut's 'Slaughterhouse 5'.
