Looking for a film with people frozen in a car

I saw this film on television in the 70s when I was young; it was broadcast sometime before 1979. Some people are stranded after a snow storm. At one point they discover a car in the snow, and when they look inside the car they see the people in it were frozen to death. I think someone cried out, "Oh, no, it's the professor!" (or something like that). At another point in the film they come across a cabin in the woods and try to open a can of something they find, but they have no can opener. The film was in color, so please don't suggest something in black & white. It may have been made for TV or it may have been an actual film; I remember there being a lot of commercials for it because we had just had the great "Blizzard of 1978" in Boston. Any help finding this film would be great! One person suggested to me it might be "The Untamed" directed by Archainbaud, but it is not that. PLEASE HELP!

Name that 1960's S&M Flick

My mom remembers going to a drive-in in 1964(ish) in Abilene, TX with scenes of a woman climbing innumerable stairs on her knees and a man sticking knives in his arms. Any idea what this is?

Looking for short film featuring mysterious black cube

I'm looking for an online video from a couple years back. It is a short scifi movie shot in the first person, which features a scientist waking up in a lab, looking out the window to see a giant tower shooting a beam into the sky, and then grabbing a black cube with lights on it, which appears to have some sort of strange powers. It was hosted on a website which had some other seemingly related material. I don't know if it was from an ARG, or a standalone video, or what, but I'd really like to watch it again.

90s japanese film about love in faceless corporate world

Looking for a Japanese film I saw prior to 2003. It was a dystopian picture of some people trying to have an office romance in the corporate office landscape of Tokyo - lots of shots of bleak urban concrete and highways and faceless office parks full of conformist white collar employees - in the final scene of the film one of the characters is stranded walking along the edge of a highway. It dealt with a complicated love triangle. I know this isn't the title, but it was something like "Kiss me twice, now hold me I love you" or something a little crazy like that- I believe this film was made in the 90s or the early 2000s. It was in Japanese language with subtitles. There is a slight chance it may have been Korean, but I'm pretty sure it was Japanese. This film may have been discussed by Fredric Jameson in one of his essays as it was screened in a graduate school class on Japanese cultural critique.

Should I read Hunger Games 1? I've already seen the movie.

Stupid question: Should I read Hunger Games 1? I've already seen the movie. This is normally a no-brainer because usually book >> movie: in this case, I have seen the movie first and have the book on-hand already, plus tonight I have a book swap and dibs on many other books that I don't know yet! Bonus: your opinion on reading parts 2&3.

Can you help me identify this indie film from the last half of the 90s?

Can you help me identify this indie film from the last half of the 90s? It was shown repeatedly on either IFC or Sundance in that period. Set in LA, it seems now like a precursor to "mumblecore" films with non-actors poorly recorded with only a bit of a plot. The protagonist was male, shorter, dark-haired, and kind of aggressive in the way he would talk to people; I especially remember he would mostly repeat what other people would say, maybe two or three times, rapidly, with this angry tone.

Can't find a scene from Batman Begins that I remember from the theater

I remember a scene from Batman Begins when Wayne is putting together the costume down in the cave. At one point he is working on the cowl and turns it over in his hands and you see two white dots near where his neck would be when he wore it. When I saw it and then I heard the voice in the movie I immediately thought they were voice modulators. I've watched the DVD, I've looked at deleted scenes, I've hunted through the internet, and I can find no reference to this scene. Was it possible I saw a miscut of the movie with a scene that wasn't supposed to go out? (Or more likely) Is it my faulty human memory playing tricks on me? Has anyone else seen this scene?

Character name in Play It Again Sam

OK Woody Allen fans, I've got a question for you. In the movie "Play It Again Sam" he has a date with a woman. What is her name? Her monologue goes something like this (I originally performed it in French) "Before tonight the doctors affirmed that I was frigid. Thank you for proving the contrary. When Dick and Linda spoke of you, they described you as a monster of intelligence, but they never told me that you were also a savage beast". I need the character's name for my resume. Thanks!

Legal thoughts for use of clips in a homeschool movie

My 7 year old son and I have been working to make a movie out of a story that he wrote this summer for a homeschool project. In making the movie, since we do not have an effects department, we found a few short clips (a few seconds or so) from movies - which we own copies of if that makes a difference - that we would like to use. Since this is a project for school, we want to make sure that we follow all rules and complexity of doing something like this and wanted to try to get permission to use the clips. [more inside]

Help me find a specific article/quote about sexism in the movie industry!

I recently read an article that contained a quote from someone in the movie industry about how it isn't currently worthwhile, or a priority, to make movies for a female audience/from a female perspective/ something along those lines. I have tried to find the associated article, but searching "movie industry women sexism" isn't very successful. I think I may have read the article at Jezebel. I may have even found it here. But I totally can't find it now. Help!
