Help me be awesome and remember a movie title.

Help me help my friend remember the title of a movie. (Or documentary?) It starts out with a voiceover over a dark screen - and the voiceover is interrupted by someone saying that voiceovers are lame (or something) and they should cut it out. And the voiceover-over-dark-screen ends. The movie (or documentary?) then progresses in a similar manner, being "edited" in that way, as they go along. Some well-known actors or director was involved. Also, it may have been filmed by a cast or crew member the same time they were filming some big-budget movie. Er, and that's about all I know.

The vault of imaginary movies?

Did I imagine that reference? Cloverfield got me thinking. Someone somewhere perhaps mentioned to me many years ago another "fake visual document" movie, this one involving a tv crew, a lake, a monster (or just a vague mystery?), and it might have been shot in black and white (perhaps to fake olden times?). Treat all preceding details as suspect, but feel free to go wild giving it a go. [more inside]

My GoogleFu has failed me.

I've been trying to find an image of Helena Bonham Carter in the picnic scene of Sweeney Todd. Or, more specifically, the pinstripe corset she was wearing in that scene. Having no luck so far, as every image online is of the dress she wears for most of the begining of the movie. Am I stuck waiting for the DVD?

Movies similar to "incident at Loch Ness"

I just watched "Incident at Loch Ness" for the third time and seriously think this is one of the best movies ever made. The spoof-documentary is not so much the draw compared to the transition from serious film to comedy and the intelligent character humor. What other films do you think i would like?

British mystery TV shows/movies?

Great British mystery television shows/movies? My girlfriend and I are both rabid fans of good, old-fashioned British whodunnits. Nothing like a rainy Sunday curled up in the sofa to watch an insufferable amateur detective line up a bunch of eccentric upper-class Brits by the fireplace to expose their innermost red herrings: Poirot, Miss Marple, Jonathan Creek, Cadfael, Inspector Alleyn, Sherlock Holmes, Gosford Park -- we have pretty much watched them all, including numerous Agatha Christie movie adaptations. What else is out there? Must be British, or feature mainly Brits; extra points for smoking jackets, quaint little villages in Dorset, vintage automobiles and funny little Frenchmen. (We don't like modern police procedurals that much, though; Inspector Morse is all right, but not quite our cup of tea.)

Name that tune: I drive cars that shift themselves!

Anyone know the name of a hip-hop song that uses the quote "I drive cars that shift themselves. My cars shift themselves. They're luxury cars," from the movie Buffalo 66 ? I'm not sure if the artist sings this line or actually samples the clip from the movie. Oh, and the song seems like it might also sample Sir Mix A Lot.

Can't remember a movie!

Gah... I was just asked. There's a martial arts movie where one of the characters blocks a punch from an attacker and then walks his hands up the opponent's arm and body locking him in place (using pressure points). I can vaguely see the scenes (I'm pretty sure it happens more than once), but neither I nor my friends can remember the movie. Help me hive mind, you're my only help.
