ID: scene from a movie where a man hails a cab

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!!

How can I make YouTube constantly display in-video time during playback?

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.

App for notifications about upcoming media?

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]

What was this TV show?

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.

Zombie Sex? Help me remember this movie

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?

Explain the protagonists' angst in "The Big Short"

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]

Identify this film which is ruining baklava for me

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]

What did Mickey Spillane mean by this word?

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]

What is the name of this movie?

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!

Please help me find a (horror?) movie from the 1970's or 1980's

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]

70s/80s movie about a babysitter who's a witch

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?

who HATES Pixar's `Inside Out` enough to organize against it?
