Animated Mermaid movie
Hey, everyone. I need help finding the title of a movie I watched when I was a kid. I watched it in the late 80s or so, but I don't know if that's when the movie was made.
This is what I remember about the plot:
It's very similar to the plot of the Little Mermaid by Disney. The mermaid falls in love with a human, but instead of getting a happy ending, she ends up dying at the end. And I can remember her fish (I think it was a fish) companion swimming through the ocean, jumping out of the water and crying her name, which I'm pretty sure was Serena. I'm not sure of the spelling though. Also, I want to say that she was blond.
I appreciate any help, as this was one of my favorite movies when I was younger.

movie i used to own on vhs
There a title for a movie i just can't recall, and its one of those flicks that wasn't a huge success that I know of. I think it started with a "T". It starts off with a young girl who always came in second place at singing contests and longed for that first prize. She lived with just her mom in a farming town. A very rich man ends up buying up a rather large and beautiful mansion in this town. the man himself had a disfigured face and was said to be a prince, but he had a very bad temper. It was also said that he was banished from his homeland, or too ashamed of his appearance to return. Anyway, somehow he comes across this girl and hires her to be his maid, to work off some debt or something. Through her evening of working for him, he ends up teaching her a song. Meanwhile the town becomes angry as their land begins to get bought up. Thinking this his doing they plot against him. Later on the girl goes to the singing competition to win first prize, while back in town the folks raid his home and chase him into the dam which kills him. Only after this occurs do they find out that he was not the one buying up their homes, but was in fact spending monstrous amounts of money giving them what they needed.. Medical attention and such.
Anyone out there know anything about this movie? or the folktale it stems from?

90's Pirate Movie
Hi, I'm looking for a movie from the 90's that had to do with pirates and treasure. The main thing I can remember about the movie is that the parrot in the movie was old enough to be the pirate's parrot so he helped lead a kid to find the treasure which was I believe buried under a tree in a resort. The resort had been built around this tree.
Thanks for any help.

I've been racking my brain for over a week now on what this tv show was, and I can't remember.
The scene that stands out the most was of a male character who melts a necklace or bracelet with special powers, and turns them into metallic liquid orbs, which he then floats in a circle above his hand.
Anyone have an idea?

1980's or 90's television series pilot
I've been trying to remember the name of a pilot for a television series that was not picked up, probably in the 80's or possibly the 90's.
The program was about a post apocalyptic world in what appears to be a desert landscape and the story revolves around people in a futuristic city. So far, sounds like a ton of movies, etc.
Here are the specifics I recall:
- When they leave the city by ground vehicle there is a paved road outside the city and a section drops down and it is used as a ramp they can drive up.
- Everyone in the city was issued a piece of jewelry with a colored crystal. To avoid mutations or something similar people could only have children with people with either the same color crystal or a different color or something like that.
- They had a medical center with an ER like area and when they needed to move supplies, equipment or patients between different medical centers quickly they "phoned" the person/etc. "over" meaning a teleporting window appeared and they slid whatever through it. Sort of a short range Stargate-like thing without the F/X effects. I think the main doctor character was a woman.
- The outside world was infested with mutants (or violent people) and there were non-mutant survivors spread around the area who were all trying to make it to this city. I think the main character was in a police or military unit whose job it was to keep the mutants at bay and to rescue non-mutants and bring them to the city.
- One of the subplots is a young attractive woman arrives at the city and her attractive sister is happy she made it. The first woman is attracted to the military guy who brought her in but she finds out they have incompatible crystal colors which I think pleased the sister because she had a compatible color. I think the first woman jokes with someone about trading crystals.
Several people I know recall it, but no one remembers the name, etc. I don't think it was any of the Roddenberry Genesis, Genesis II or Planet Earth pilots (I think they were too old and I don't recall any subshuttles in this program).
The fact it was a pilot for a series that wasn't picked up probably means it's pretty obscure but people here seem to know a lot of obscure titles.

Help to find name of kids using telepathy to make gumballs on spaceship
Hi, I need help to find out what tv show or tv movie this was. It must have been late 70's to early 80's, it was two kids, i think a boy and a girl and they found a spaceship underground i think at a beach, they went inside the ship and by using telepathy with the help of the ship i assume created a bunch of gumballs that flooded the floor with gumballs. That is all i remember, any help finding out what the name of this program was would be greatly appreciated, its been on my mind for some time now and keeps coming back into my mind. Help please. Thanks.

80īs Scifi show. Three robot spaceships combining into One big one.
Hi, I need a bit of help figuring out what an 80īs "puppet" show was called.
I remember it to be a puppet show (maybe an animation though). I thought it was starfleet but it turns out its not (at least from the episodes ive seen of starfleet now there is no spaceships joining)
What I remember from it is that there where 3 spaceships combining into one big (flying?) spaceship robot used to fight off the enemy.
Can anyone help based on these loose memories ?

Trying to remember the name of a movie
I saw this movie years ago, and I believe it might have been on the Sci-Fi channel. I only remember a few things about it. Time was used as currency, rather than money. All monetary transcations were performed with time, because they had solved death. At birth each person was given a timer with 1000 years of time on it, and when it ran out you died. I remember one scene where a "rich" guy was in a casino and a woman next to him got a warning that she only had 10 minutes left, so he lent her some time. I also remember a scene with a young girl smoking and her friends asking her how much time she had left. When she said a couple of years her friends asked her if she had told her parents yet.
I can't remember the name of the movie, nor when or where I saw it, but I do remember that it was on tv, and not in a theater.
Hope that rings a bell to someone.
Thanks in advance.

I have been trying to remember this movie for literally YEARS and it's driving me crazy. I want to say it was an 80's movie and it was based in the future (terminator style future if that makes sense) I don't remember any of the actors but what I do remember is that there was a long line of cars and they were headed to this checkpoint with a lot of guards and they even had guards walking on rafters above the cars keeping an eye on them. A male and female got out of the car and the female was pregnant but was wearing a flak jacket to hide this and the corner of her flak jacket was sticking out by her collar and the male character motioned for her to hide it and they got caught and sent to prison.
In prison the males and females are separated and they wear magnetic boots to keep them under control (much like in face off but that isn't it). That's about all I remember unfortunately I was really young when I saw it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

A mere player
Could this have been the movie Starman with Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen? The did do a short run TV series with Robert Hays (the guy from Airplane!)

Mystic and Misfit
Could it be Voltron? An early 80's Anime. There was also kind of a power rangers type live action show of the same vein that I do not remember.

Damn fool idealist
This sounds a lot like The Phoenix, which aired on ABC back in 1982.

I remember The Phoenix because the guy who played the main character was Khan's second in command in ST2:tWoK... didn't he use an amulet or something though as his power? I remember liking the show, as bad as it was... of course, I was much younger then, and didn't appreciate fine, well acted television like Buffy or Full House.
