Here in Oxford, every second lamp post has a coded sign on it, indicating that there is a movie filming location nearby. Sometimes, it's obvious which movie is involved -- e.g. 'LWS LOC' refers to the TV series 'Lewis'. In other cases, it's pretty hard to work out -- e.g. 'The Golden Compass' was signed by a jumble of letters that I've forgotten ('ICHR LOC' or similar). I remember seeing a similarly obscure code on Santa Monica Pier. I'd like to know what movies are being filmed where. Is there an online resource that would tell me which location code refers to which movie? I couldn't find this information in the IMDB.

There's a western from probably the mid to early 70's. I don't remember much except that the main cowboy character ate entire raw onions as a way to prove how badass he was. There was also a scene where he was stuck in the desert with some woman I think. Does anyone know what movie this was?

In April (or May....or March) of this year, there was a movie on one of the expanded HBO channels around 2 or 3 in the morning. I don't think it was one of those type of movies, but it might be.

What horror movie is this? Guy goes to cabin...his bride comes back from the dead to find him because he promised to always love her. Her disembodied head haunts him. She's in the mirror at some point. I think there's a storm. Sounds kind of like Evil Dead I or II, but it isn't. It's scary. That's all I remember...I saw it sometime in the late '80s on television. Anyone?

Brace yourself for another iPod question. Purchased and downloaded movie from iTunes. Got all excited to watch it on the plane on my iPod. Was crushed to find that upon re-synch-ing my iPod with my iTunes, the movie doesn't seem to have downloaded onto the iPod, which I assumed it would do automatically just like it does with new music that I add to iTunes.
