I have a vague memory of a single bit of a movie I saw in the early 90s (don't know how old the movie was tho). Three kids, on the lip of a giant TV screen. The sky was orange/yellow/green stormy. The movie villain was threatening them, and they either pushed him into TV land, or they themselves jumped into it to escape him. Any guesses?

What is this quote from (filter)!?!?!?
"She seems cool, but she doesn't even listen to Bauhaus."
I have tried and tried to find the origin and I have failed miserably. I heard it while listening to 1st Wave on Sirius XM. I'm assuming it's from a movie. There is one person on twitter who used the quote, but she has failed to respond to my plea.

Looking for a movie I saw on TV in the 80s that was about a sad clown/mime who left his circus and was wandering around the city - a foreign city, probably Europe. It is NOT Children of Paradise, but maybe some remake inspired by it. I believe it was a foreign film and was probably shown on Nickelodeon - it was a color film. Very atmospheric and followed the clown wandering in the city. Any ideas?

Please help me find the names of three vaguely recalled movies from my past: a teen flick from the 80s, a dubbed (possibly Italian) horror film from the 70s, and a scifi adventure from the 60s (maybe)? [more inside]

Are there major concrete breakpoints in film quality/style over there years? Or are these more to do with the film to video conversion (I watch movies on television). Or are these perceived changes based on my historical memory? [more inside]

I'm usually the dude that answers questions like this, but for the life of me, I can't remember the title of the film. It was early-mid 80's, possibly a TV Movie, where two "righteous dudes" are kidnapped and brought to this town that looks eerily like small town Kansas circa 1950. It turns out that this city is a training ground for Soviet sleeper agents, and the dudes were kidnapped to update the training program. In the end, the dudes lead an escape from the town back to America.

What is the name of the movie or show with this plot?:
A young girl with an abusive father is given a black-robed doll name "the Viper." At night, the Viper comes alive as a human-sized version of itself with green, glowing eyes and helps the girl.
Near the end of the movie/show, there is a twist where the Viper is actually the girls father or something along those lines.

I'm looking for a movie that was possibly made in the early 80s. It had a similar feel of Jungle Book because it had a little boy in it with many animals including a kangaroo. It was part animation and part live-action, and I believe the entire movie was set in Australia.
I wish I could remember more details of it, but I was quite young when I watched it and I haven't been able to find it since.
