My wife (raised Catholic) and I (raised Jewish) were watching The Exorcist the other day, and she turned to me and asked me if there was any movie where Jews were depicted as secretive, mysterious, and spooky. The best I could do was Lenny Meyer and his fellow Hasids in Pi. [more inside]

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?
looking for the name of a movie - opening scene is some guy who goes back to his hometown for a funeral - meets a high school friend who is working in the cemetery digging graves -- can't think of the name of the movie.
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?
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.)
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.

If it is well known, what is it? http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=O29IITBox2c (starts around 2:53) [mild expletive warning for the clip] I bought the soundtrack, composed by Marc Shaiman, and it's not on there.

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.

Just saw Eastern Promises. Kirill was sporting an interesting looking watch. It often happens that some item of clothing, a watch, a doily, or slipcover catches my eye in a movie, and then I spend way too long trying to track it down online. What websites do y'all rely on to answer these and other harrowing questions more expeditiously? Many thanks in advance.
