What's your favorite car rolling over stunt?

Car rolling over filter: I'm looking for movies wherein a car rolls in a spectacular (potentially test-able) way. Or for an interesting or counter-intuitive reason. Think along the lines of the car flip on the way down Fillmore in Jade. Or the Bond/Casino Royale flip of the McClaren. Hopefully even more spectacular.

Stop Motion Movie Actors Needed. Must Be REALLY Short And Cheap!

Help! I need ideas for two small figures (toys most likely?) to serve as the main characters in stop-motion movie clips. They should be under 6 inches tall, more or less. Ideas for a male and a female figure needed. The male character is a geek. The female is a girl-next-door type. [more inside]

This Is Your Script . . . This Is Your Script Unplugged

Looking for more examples of a plot. Well, more of a structure really. The one from Noises Off, where you are shown how the story should go, then they go through it again, only this time everything goes wrong. Bonus points if they go through it a third time, and it absolutely explodes. [more inside]

Name that movie!

Name that movie! I am trying to recall the name of a movie I saw in the early to mid 2000s. It was a thriller drama, maybe classified as horror (although I don't remember it being particularly gruesome). It offers an explanation for some of the thousands of unsolved missing persons cases by following a cross country truck driver who is a serial killer. [more inside]

Looking for Movie Scenes Shot in a Booth

Hi all! I'm in a film production class and I have to shoot an intimate scene set in a restaurant booth. Frankly, I'm having problems figuring out how to stage everything, so I'd like to take a look at some similar movie scenes. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any. YouTube has been no help (maybe I'm not searching properly). Can anyone suggest some specific movies with scenes set in a bar or restaurant booth? I'd prefer something film noir-ish but I'll take any suggestions. Thanks!

Is there a Japanese equivalent of Terminator Salvation?

So, you know how Hollywood sometimes makes big stupid films that flop at home (at times not making enough money), but then they release the films abroad and they do well (enough to make more money and sometimes merit a sequel!)? Does the reverse happen as well? Are their foreign films that do well in the US (and I'll include critical success as much as popularity -- and popularity among people who go see foreign films), but in their home countries, they are considered silly or stupid or just not good?

How can I put long-ish videos online without them being public yet accessible by computer illiterate people?

What are the options for making publicly available educational movie files, so they can be accessed by computer illiterate people, yet without making them publicly available/indexed by Google? I tried YouTube but hit its "video is too long" limitation (the movies are 35 minutes and I really don't want to chop them up into 10 min chunks). The movies are created by a charity and I have full permission of the copyright holder. The movies are not available online anywhere else. (Read on for more info.) [more inside]

What is this campy horror flick???

Mid/late 80s-90's comedy/horror flick. Seems very B movie esque. It actually reminds me of something that Troma would churn out. It had to do with a high school reunion. Everyone had quirky tendencies and maybe they were all murders? I remember a murder happening in a school cafeteria kitchen and think someone was decapitated with something silly.

What else has a set of rules like this?

What is this weird movie with regenerating body parts!

I remember a science fiction movie (or maybe a TV show?) that took place... in a space ship or very futuristic setting. There were aliens (I think, or man-created approximations of human beings?) that, when parts of their bodies were cut off, they would not only regenerate the limb but the spare limbs would regenerate BODIES. The atmosphere of the movie was very... orange? Dark? The details are all very fuzzy. I believe I saw it on cable TV, and I was definitely older than five but younger than twelve. So, 1989 to 1996. It scared the crap out of me when I was a kid and gave me nightmares for years. Help! [more inside]

Help me identify this movie.

What is the name of this movie? - man brings young boy off the streets to live with him and his girlfriend after boy is separated from his mother. Boy turns out to be incredibly talented artistically. I think the man has to give the boy up because he never went through proper channels and basically just kidnapped him, but I can't remember the details. I think it's a recent movie and it's driving me nuts that I can't remember more...

How realistic is drowning when shown on TV?

How accurate, from a medical perspective, is the typical TV/Movie representation of someone nearly drowning? I refer to the "Receive mouth to mouth resuscitation whilst unconscious, cough up a little water and regain consciousness then everything's fine again." depiction of drowning.

Can frozen river horses exist?

A recent Spanish film, Silence in the Snow, begins with a striking images of horses' heads sticking out of a frozen river. Apparently a herd has run into the river and the water has frozen instantaneously around them, freezing them into it. It is a beautiful image, not dissimilar from one in Guy Maddin's My Winnipeg, and it is just a movie and all, but I've been wondering: could it really happen?
