Who's doing the marketing for the upcoming Deadpool movie?

Is it Fox's interior people? An outside ad agency? Several agencies? The posters and tv/internet spots have been consistently hilarious with a particular tone, so I'm really curious, but can't find any answers via Googling.

Help me find two songs from the impossible soundtrack

Many years ago, back in 2008 or 2009, I watched a movie called The Bilbee Boys on some shady no-name video streaming site. It wasn't a great movie but there were two songs on the soundtrack that I loved. I am looking for those songs. [more inside]

Films that are similar to "All the President's Men" ?

I recent watched and loved All the President's Men. Journalists chasing the truth, 1970's aesthetic, Redford and Hoffman, it had lots of appealing aspects. I then saw and liked (but did not love), Three Days of the Condor. What similar films should I search out ?

What's that faint red glow on the movie theater screen?!?

Movie ID: Group needs to escape through orca-infested bay

I am trying to identify a movie I saw in the 1970s, perhaps in theaters or perhaps on TV and thus released earlier. It was in color. A group of people is on a cliff, looking at a bay, and worrying that the orcas that live in the bay will prevent their escape from---something. I'm sorry but that's all I have. Any idea what I was watching?

Cheese as a weapon of war?

Help! I have a scene from a movie (or possibly a TV show) stuck in my head, and I cannot remember from where it comes. A small country, whose primary export is stinky cheese, is at war with its neighbors. I'd thought it was The Mouse That Roared, but that's about wine, not cheese. [more inside]

Movie where meat was the gift

I remember one scene from a movie -- but what movie is it? A boy is sitting on the floor watching TV. We know that the kid's dad is a butcher. The boy is thinking about what he wants for Christmas (there's a narrator) -- typical toys. The Dad walks in with a large package wrapped in white paper and throws it on the floor and says "Hey kid, Merry Christmas" in a totally flat tone. We know the package is a side of beef or something like that, but I can't remember how we know that. [more inside]

Start making sense

I’m looking for suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat movies (horror, mystery, thriller, action) that are reasonably realistic and have a conclusive, unambiguous ending. When watching movies, I’m always willing to suspend some disbelief, but only up to a point. I’m turned off by gaping holes in the plot line, implausible twists, and puzzling endings. [more inside]

Need distracting movies/tv to get through the bad time

My husband left me out of the blue and my heart is hellishly broken and I am trying desperately to make the hours pass until it hurts less. I am looking for recommendations for tv or movies. I can't do too much violence or suspense or romance. I like sci-fi and fantasy, I like nature, quirky things and strong women. I watched a bunch of Elementary until it all seemed the same, then I watched Blindspot but I'm all caught up, then I watched The Lost Room and then rewatched Firefly for the umpteenth time, and Lucy, then some of Misfits. I read Ms. Marvel, I listened to the podcasts The Message and a bunch of The Black Tapes. I have Eat Pray Love cued up and then Howl's Moving Castle. I don't know if this is enough info to go on, but I need to get through the minutes and thought I'd ask. Maybe I'll watch the first season of Veronica Mars again. Help?

Trying to ID a 1940s-ish film

I’m trying to ID a film I saw, possibly in the mid-80s, but which was set I think in 1940s-ish England. I believe it was black and white.

ID this historic movie/TV show with a stabbing at a party

My wife has a very clear recollection of the following scene from a movie or TV show, but we can't figure out where it's from. The scene takes place at a 18th- or 19th-century fancy-dress party. A fop approaches a lady at the party and harasses (assaults? molests?) her. In response, the lady stabs the fop in the leg with something; my wife remembers the weapon as a small flag, but admits it might have been something else. [more inside]

What was that 1980s TV movie/show with an alien news show?

In the late 1980s, I remember seeing something on television that featured some kids picking up a signal/broadcast from outer space. The broadcast contained an alien news show. It was a standard type of news show with male and female aliens at a news desk with an inset in the top corner. The aliens were sort of heavy-set, not your generic, skinny bug-eyed aliens. I don't think it was intended to be scary but it kind of freaked me out as a 7-year old and it has stuck with me to this day. [more inside]

Does my live movie riffing show have to pay for film rights?

I ran (and hopefully will run again) a live movie riffing show along the lines of a Mystery Science Theater 3000. The first time I did it, we did a film from the public domain, but I know it would be a lot more popular were we to have a better class of film. I know you're not my lawyer and this is not legal advice, but is this something that could be considered a transformative work and I could sidestep licensing the films? [more inside]

How do I move an iPad movie file to a PC flash drive?

It sounds ridiculously simple, but someone videoed a performance of me. She thought she'd send it via e-mail but that would mean breaking it up into several pieces.

1980's Japanese movies set in Tokyo about the life of a salaryman?

My partner is fascinated by Tokyo in the 1980s, when the economy was in a historic boom and Americans were jittery about Japan's economic and cultural ascendancy. Can you recommend Japanese-made movies (with English subtitles) filmed during that time that were set in Tokyo and focused on the life of a 'salaryman', innovator or other rising professional? He's especially interested in movies that feature Japanese nationalism and favorable comparisons of Japan vs. the rest of the world.

i watched a movie where an American writer, disappointed in love, goes to some remote location to write and is assigned a Spanish (?) speaking housekeeper. Of course, they fall in love.

Please recommend some movies by African-American creators

My husband and I recently watched Dope and really enjoyed it. We'd like to seek out more movies by African-American creators. Any recommendations are welcome, but we are especially interested in movies made by and starring African Americans, and we prefer movies that are somewhat "fun", even if they have serious themes.

This is kind of vague (else I would remember it I suppose) but it was late 90s/early 2000s (?), with a separated guy with a young daughter (?), there is a fight with his wife at a gas station (?), somehow he meets a Kate-Winslett-ish character (pretty sure it was not Winslett though), and then they move somewhere north-ish and start to renovate/rehab an old house ...
