Does anyone know the title of the movie, that this scene of a man hailing a cab is from? Here is the man's voice hailing the cab - but there is also some music mixed in that was not from the original film. Thanks in advance!!
I'm going to show a YouTube video to a bunch of people in a context (DIY MST3K) where we need to have constant access to the accurate playback clock for the movie. I.e., I want to show the timeline bar that appears at the bottom of the screen when you wiggle your mouse, constantly, but without constantly having to wiggle the mouse. Is there a way to do this? Bonus if it can work with Chromecast.
I like movies, tv, books and music. Is there an iPhone App that lists upcoming items in these (and/or other) categories, allows me to select favorites and then will send me a notification a week or two before said media becomes available? Yeah, I can go through various websites for movies or tv and then add'em to a watch list, but ideally, I'd like it all in one website or app. [more inside]
"Split," the new film by M Night Shyamalan, comes out on January 20th. If you've seen the movie, please spoil the ending below. I would like to know what the Shyamalanesque twist is, but do not wish to see the movie. This thread will contain spoilers.
What are some commercial action/thriller/sci fi films where the main character either wakes up with amnesia (a la Bourne) and has to discover his/her identity, or else discovers midway through the film that his/her sense of self is falsely implanted (a la Total Recall?)
My FiL wants to watch a Christmas movie with a beach theme. Think Elvis / Frankie Avalon & Annette Funicello, but he might be perfectly content with something more modern.
I was thinking holiday thoughts, and a movie memory came to the surface after many years of dormancy. The only thing I remember about this movie was that it was about a black youth who was asked what he wanted for Christmas and he said "I want me this cat I found". [more inside]
Howdy good people! I've been tasked with adding ideas to a film and speaker series surrounding the local foods movement. So, I'm looking for recommendations for films to show to the locavores Please offer me some suggestions of your picks of this type of movie that has been released since 2014. [more inside]
There was a TV show or movie in Britain in the late 90s/early 2000s that was centered around two women (comedians) who played teenage boys. I believe in one of the movies they go to the seaside. What was this show? Who were these comedians? My parents are insisting I made this up.
I'd like to watch the old documentary but his official website says it is currently unavailable and googling has turned up very little. Does anyone more savvy know? Mind Traveller: Oliver Sacks
I’m seeking suggestions for steamy books, fanfiction, and videos/shows/series because I'm simply awful at picking these myself. Snowflakes divulged in the extended explanation. [more inside]
I am currently watching a lot of old sci-fi movies and went through some (best 70ies sci-fi movies, best 80 sci-fi movies) etc. Children of Men reminded me of another movie I saw many years ago. The story is similar. All women are infertile, except one that has somehow to be rescued. [more inside]
I just watched Arrival last night and want to know more about the Chinese dialogue at the end. I'm a heritage speaker so I caught the gist, but does anyone know exactly what was said, especially the recitation near the end of the scene?
I have a bunch of early Hollywood silent film clips that I am looking to ID. Any idea what films these clips are from? Thank you in advance! [more inside]
Here's a screenshot of the unicorn print in question. Is this familiar to anyone? Is it an actual replication of renaissance art than I can get my hands on?
I'm trying to remember a movie I saw maybe ten years ago that was two different threads: one involved a man who traveled a lot, had various affairs, and eventually reconnected with his wife. The other involved a white woman and a black man awakening in a Garden of Eden and exploring their new surroundings! [more inside]

The late 80s/90s seemed to be a golden era for "message" movies. Not after school special but "let's explore a theme" type movies. Why is this? [more inside]
Can you think of any movies with characters that dress up for halloween? Thanks!
What is the (John Hughes?) movie in which a pompous kid is lecturing someone else and -- instead of punctuating his/her points by saying "One", "Two", "Three" -- instead carelessly separates those points by saying something like "One", "B", and "Four"?
Trying to remember a movie I saw when I was a kid. I think Michael Caine was in it, and he went to a massage parlour. [more inside]
I remember a movie where there was some supernatural, evil being. Maybe a zombie, maybe a demon? He would have sex with women and midway through the women tried to protest, but he continued. Afterward, the women were almost catatonic, very cold and distant. Also maybe under his control? Anyone remember what movie this was?
I saw bits and pieces of this movie on a bus on a route through Denizli, Turkey, in August 2011. I don’t speak Turkish. I only have a few details. [more inside]

When I was younger I vaguely remember flipping through channels one night and witnessing a horrible death scene from a horror movie. Can you help me figure out what movie it was? [more inside]
Along in the late 1970s when I was in grammar school, we watched a film in class that had a catchy tune about "Mecology" -- the idea being that ecology is relevant to you and "me." What was this film? (Could it have had something to do with being on a spaceship, or is my memory playing tricks on me?) [more inside]
My grandparents used to rent movies from an independent video store, that mostly carried Christian stuff. I've got a bee in my bonnet about one of these movies, because I can't remember what it was called. [more inside]
I'm trying to think of indisputably iconic movie quotes from the 90s to the present, and finding it surprisingly difficult. One example is "You're a wizard, Harry". Any others?
The TV show Fargo is great. I really enjoy it. But aside from the great storytelling and filmmaking skill, I realized it ticks some boxes that I want more of: 1) crime 2) in flyover country 3) during the winter Can you suggest books, movies, or TV shows that meet these criteria?
In the film The Big Short, the three central characters - (Steve Carell's) Mark Baum, (Christian Bale's) Dr. Michael Burry, (Brad Pitt's) Ben Rickert - are shown as profiting tremendously by betting against the housing crash, yet all are shown as being pissed off about it to greater or lesser degrees. I have a hard time buying into this. If you spend all this energy playing the game and making a massive profit off it, can you really be said to be opposed to the game? [more inside]
Is there a database that could tell me which actors are currently on-screen for a specific movie at a specific timecode? Ideally one that allows public access or is crowd-sourced?
Can you provide examples of movies that end with a particular kind of reveal? [more inside]
It was either in French (most likely) or German (may have had English subtitles). It was about a poor kid having grown up to be a rich man, and the story was being told via flashbacks. The detail I remember is some scenes about him being invited to a rich kid's house for a dinner. He took homemade baklava as a gift, which was looked down upon. His family may have been Turkish immigrants to this European city. [more inside]
Our friends host an annual weekend gathering for our geeky circle, and for the third year in a row I am in charge of the Bad Movie Showing and riffing. I'm on the search for this year's feature. Snowflakes below. [more inside]
Looking for stuff in the itunes store with Korean subtitles, the shows/movies don't have to be Korean. Is it right to assume that Korean-produced movies will all have Korean subtitles? What other stuff has subtitles? Any way to search for this?
I've been using snippets and samples of sci-fi/horror/weird movies for station IDs on the weird late night radio show I do. I'm bored with the current crop... help me find some new stuff to sample! [more inside]
For a friend's birthday, we are looking for good recent (last 5 - 10 years) biographies or autobiographies. Books are best (and available as paper rather than ebooks), though if there is an excellent movie available as a dvd that would work also. [more inside]
Okay, so I'm working on new subtitles for Robert Aldrich's noir classic "Kiss Me Deadly". Around 50 minutes in, Mike Hammer drops in on a character named Carl Evello, and encounters a sexy girl who introduces herself like this:
"I'm Friday. I'd have been named Tuesday if I'd been born on Tuesday. I'm Carl's sister. Half sister. Same mother, different father."The thing is, while her voice said "father", her lips were obviously pronouncing a different word, that was later overdubbed as "father". [more inside]
I've been reading about Hollywood accounting. If the numbers are made up, what good are the accounts? Why doesn't the government mind?
Asking for my boyfriend: What is the name of the movie in which a ragtag bunch of people search for a buried treasure? These people are competing to find this treasure, driving recklessly, and attempting to stop the others from finding it. I think the treasure winds up being buried by palm trees, having to do with a certain geometric pattern (an "I" beam shape, or perhaps an "H"? I don't remember). The whole debacle winds up being a misunderstanding if I remember correctly, and the treasure is something priceless or worthless. Thanks!
These were printed schedules, I think four color, listing the monthly movie schedule for the Ogden Theater in Denver in the 80s. They were everywhere at the time, and are apparently nowhere now. But there must be some floating around somewhere, scanned or no, and I need them. It's, um, an emergency. Yeah, emergency! [more inside]
It was the early 80s and I remember watching a fascinating kids adventure movie. But then I got scared from one scene and turned it off. I've never been able to find the movie since or learn how it ended. The scene I remember is of one character running up the stairs of the magical castle/dungeon to escape something terrible and the stairs disappearing as he tried to outrun them. Other things I remember: [more inside]
I barely recall it, but the ending haunts me: There is a guy sitting in a small cabin in the woods. There is a body on a rough table in the middle of the cabin. It is night. The man falls asleep, and when he awakens, it's morning, I think the cabin door is now open, and if my memory serves me, the body (a woman?) had been defiled in some way. The man screams, the scream echoes through the woods, the movie ends I think. I cannot recall what movie this was...any ideas? [more inside]
OK, knowing the answer will probably not make me a better, happier, wiser person, but I've got to know: in some random Tumblr surfing I saw this picture, apparently a still from a movie... [more inside]

To settle a bet: can anyone determine, from any particular props, signage, etc., in what year the movie "Midnight Run" took place? We know it was released in 1988, but we want to know if the setting was contemporary. I say yes, it took place in the late eighties; my friend thinks it took place in the early eighties.
I have a vague memory of watching a movie on local TV Saturday afternoon (this would have been in the late 90s). Family hires a new babysitter, she turns out to be a witch & does witchy stuff. I remember she was blonde and there were lots of yellow & orange tones in the shots. I'm also pretty sure there was a shot of her levitating. I already have determined it is NOT the 1990 Friedkin film "The Guardian", though the witch did look similar. Any ideas?
I´d like to know exactly where the crash scene was filmed in the film "Abre los ojos". YouTube video provided inside. [more inside]
I was tremendously moved by Pixar's Inside Out and went online to read reviews. While not taken as a pillar of the film community, I noticed on IMDB when you clicked on user reviews, you were greeted by a full page of 1-star reviews. This seemed... suspicious. Are there any groups that would perhaps see the film Inside Out as worthy of a targeted campaign to deter people via imdb? [more inside]
My mother-in-law remembers seeing a movie where William Powell was shaving on a train, singing the Ohio State song ("It's round on the ends/ and high in the middle/ It's O-hi-O.") She thought it was in one of his Thin Man movies (with Myrna Loy) but she recently rewatched them and didn't see it. What movie is she thinking of?
