I'm looking for an original copy of the South Korean film Snowpiercer.

The film Snowpiercer is set to release in the US, but with twenty minutes shaved for American audiences. I am looking for a copy, online, or elsewhere, where I might procure a copy of the original film from South Korea. Thanks!

Movies that show the aftermath of a stylish party?

I'm looking for movies which show the aftermath of a hip or elegant party. There's a scene like this in Breakfast at Tiffany's, when Holly Golightly wakes up looking like a hot mess the morning after her swinging house party. Can you think of any others? It could be the morning after, or in the middle of the night when everyone's asleep or gone home.

Meme of tv or movie characters driving someone out to a remote location

How many instances in television and film can the hive mind come up with that involve a character driving someone out to the desert (or some other remote location) to kill them, often having the victim (who is usually someone who has wronged the character, or can't be convicted in a court of law), dig a hole, only ending up unable to actually murder them?

Name kids movie with a (maybe) hook handed villian.

My brothers are trying to figure out the name of a movie they saw when they were kids (in the early 90's), their description: A kid searches for a crystal (or diamond) using clues (or one clue) written on a scroll hidden inside a hollow cross, and is being pursued by a villian with a hook (or possibly a peg leg). They said it's not animated, and not a muppet/puppet movie (i.e. not the dark crystal). Any ideas?

Running my own midnight movie

I've got a notion to organize a movie screening of some sci-fi movie at a local theater, and sell tickets.

Assuming I know ahead of time what those costs are, Kickstarter could be the ticket sales mechanism. [actual question inside] [more inside]

How to get film footage from a film archive & film archive etiquette

I have identified a film clip in a documentary movie that is of professional interest to me; I also suspect that there may be other film clips on the specific location of interest. I would like to identify the archive which has this film clip and possibly find a way to view the whole thing. I would like to know a little about researching things in film archives - catalogs, accessibility to someone who doesn't have academic affiliation nor film industry affiliation. I do work at the location that I'm looking for footage of. [more inside]

Help me find this movie ...

When i was a kid in the late 70's, early 80's ... i saw, what i think was a movie (could have been a made for TV movie, IDK), on TV. It was about a bunch of school children living on (what i THINK was earth)... possibly even set in the future. It rained... all the time. And the 1 girl was a bit of an outcast... but she had remembered when it didn't rain (possibly from her childhood maybe being on earth). One day the sun came out for just a day.... and the other kids locked her in a room... ran out to play in the sun.... and later, forgot they locked her in the room... and at the end gave her a bunch of flowers they all picked .... I don't remember much more.... wasn't particularly special or anything, but i think my kids would like seeing it. Any ideas? It's a bit more on the obscure side for sure.....

Help me find the titles of two horror movies I saw when I was a kid.

Movie #1 I saw on Sammy Terry's "Nightmare Theater" on WTTV-4 in the mid to late 70s. It was set in a girls reform school (England maybe ?) and the only male at the remote mansion was the Headmistress's teenage son. He would spy on the girls and told his Mom that he liked some of them. His Mom would always tell him that they were not good enough for him and he needed to find a girl like her. Girls started disappearing, at the end he had made his own perfect girl using different girl's body parts so she would be just like his Mom. Very creepy movie. Movie #2 I may have seen on TV in Michigan in the early 70's. The movie started with some guys towing a guy on a square board with wheels behind a pickup truck, the driver took a sharp turn and the guy got shredded by a barb wire fence. Later there was a girl (deformed maybe?) chained up in the attic of a two story house. I have searched Google and INDB using keywords and I would appreciate any help. Thanks Hive Mind!

Looking for dialogue with a certain form

I'm looking for lines of dialogue from movies, novels, or elsewhere, in which someone says that something is not an X, even though it is an X, just not a mere X or typical X. An example of the type of exchange I'm looking for: "Wow, you spent a year's salary on a car?" "A car? This is isn't a car. It's a Lamborghini!" The second person knows that their Lamborghini is a car, but means to express that it isn't just a car. (It's important for my purposes that the person doesn't say 'just'.) There must be some recognizable instances of this type of speech, but I'm drawing a blank. Any ideas?

"What you look for in a bag was once found in a sack"

Is there a Swedish speaker in the house? In the Swedish film Call Girl, one of the characters utters a phrase that is translated in the subtitles as: "What you look for in a bag was once found in a sack." To me it's a total non-sequitur... Any idea what it means? Here's the clip on YouTube. Thanks!

There's a farm, and a widow...

Movie about a widow on a farm/ranch in Australia. It's historical, but I can't remember the period. She has red hair, and is shamed by her church for not having remarried. She's menaced by bad guys on horses, who tie up a young man (a cousin? brother?) to a fence and prepare to horsewhip him, but a mysterious man swoops in at the last minute to save them. It sounds like every romance novel ever, but I only caught a few minutes of it and was intrigued enough to try to find it again. Ideas?

Movie with a girl who turns into a star on a staircase?

I'm looking for one of those near-forgotten movies from childhood. I don't have a ton of info here. For some reason, I thought for a long time it might be a Sesame Street movie (or episode, or something), but it might just as well have been totally unrelated. The movie/episode climaxes on the top of a huge set of stairs (I recall it as stylistically over the top - sky at the top of the stairs, the stairs themselves were lit up, etc.), and a girl is turned into a star (a literal star, not a celebrity). It was a really sad scene. There were others there to say goodbye to her. It felt like a death, and I definitely cried. It's the only scene I remember, unfortunately. Anyone else remember something like this?

Good mystery movies to watch?

I'd like to get some good mystery movie recommendations from the 80s on. It's OK if they veer toward the thriller, like Michael Clayton, ridiculous like Ford Fairlaine, noirish like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, or are a more standard outing with a strong, interesting, well developed detective lead like Zero Effect. Drawing room mysteries totally A-OK too. Super bonus points if I can stream them now on Hulu plus or Netflix.

Looking for a specific Tarantino quote

Quentin Tarantino, in an interview, said something along the lines of, "The medium that I work in is the audience's emotions." I think that the interview was relatively recent, either about Inglourious Basterds or Django, and it may even have been referenced on Metafilter, but now that I'm looking for it, I can't find it. So, did he actually say something to this effect? If yes, where did he say it and what was the actual statement?

Documentary about a man representing himself in a lawsuit?

A friend of mine is trying to remember the name of a documentary they once saw and Google has failed them. I'm forever touting the skill and speed with which the AskMe community solves dilemmas like these, so don't fail me now! Here's what she asked me: I saw a documentary about a man who was representing himself in a lawsuit or series of lawsuits -- I think the government had filed them against him for sending threatening letters. Something about defending his land and eminent domain... He had a wife that he met in a foreign country. She was a lot younger than him and she moved to the US and married him. They were both chain smokers and used a plastic fork as a cigarette holder. They lived in a trailer that was a mess and full of document boxes of his "research" for his case. And they had a few big dogs.

I'm trying to think of a movie where a man is having an affair with another woman. During one of the encounters while he should be watching his child, the child accidentally dies I think by falling into a pool.
