I'm trying to remember the name of a movie from the 70s or 80s which featured a woman who met up on a ski slope with an amputee gentleman (please pardon if that is not the correct term); he skied with one ski, and had a line, "Even bad sex is still pretty good" which he delivered with a French accent

When I was about ten when I saw this movie about a family trapped in a house. Their windows and doors were bricked in and they could not get out. Whenever they turned the television on a strange logo appeared. I think I remember the mother accusing the father of having done something to cause this situation. The thing that sticks in my mind was a scene towards the end of the movie where tons of black goo comes down the chimney and out of the fireplace. [more inside]

A friend is trying to remember the name of a movie she saw on Bravo in the mid-to-late 90s. She remembers it as being either in French or Italian, with the plot as follows: "it's about this couple that gets married and they're not meant to be together or something like that,so they're never in the same room together. if the husband walked into the living room the wife was in the kitchen, if the wife was on the stairs the husband was in the basement... it was really weird. they kept disappearing." If anyone can remember it, the hivemind can!
A few months ago, there was news that Kevin Smith would release a director's commentary early, so fans of Clerks 2 could rewatch the movie in a theater with an iPod. Clerks 2 has come and gone from my local theater but I'm still wondering if this audio ever came out, because I'd love to hear it and watch the movie again (have to catch it at the $1 theater now). Anyone ever heard what became of this? I don't see any mentions of it online

I'm looking for movies featuring evil/bad psychiatrists. I'm also looking for movies that feature good (West) Texas accents. An example of the first would be Michael Caine in "Quills,"an example of the second would be Sissy Spacek in "Badlands." Bonus points for contemporary time frame and female actors, but not necessary. Comedies are fine too.

I have one of those help me figure out this vaguely remembered movie questions. I would be so happy if someone got this but since I was around ten years old or so when I saw it, I have my doubts. Here goes - I remember that there were three guys as the main characters. They were something like secret agents. (For some reason I have one of them looking like Richard Dawson from the opening credits of Hogan's Heroes. They all wore that kind of outfit). They were on a mission to some island that was run by a mysterious man and woman. There was a castle or haunted house on the island.They had to uncover some mystery on this island. The one part I remember clearly was a scene where they kept hearing a baby cry during the night and then there was a scene where they discovered some secret room on the basement of the castle/haunted house. I'm guessing the movie was made in the late sixteies early seventies. Any ideas? All help greatly appreciated. ( I have had other half remembered movies that I have been able to find using Google or IMBD, but this one has eluded me)

Examples of recurring in-jokes or motifs in film and television? Examples I can think of are the appearances of "1138" in George Lucas's movies (referring, of course, to THX-1138), and the numbers 1013 and 1121 (and, subsequently, the times 10:13 and 11:21) in The X-Files, being the birthdates of Chris Carter and his wife.

Years ago, I had an English teacher show our class a film version of Oedipus Rex. The prof explained that the director had taken pains to make the movie has period-accurate as possible, as far as the production design: costumes, sets, setting, etc. I think it was made in the early 70s or late 60s. What was this movie called, and/or who made it?

So I've been watching a bunch of older movies on VHS like Wait Until Dark (1963) and Sword in the Stone (1967). At the end when everything's black, right before it turns to the black and white noise, there's a sound of a phone dialing very quickly, or something similar. Anybody else ever noticed it? Out of curiosity, any ideas on what that is, how it happens, why it's there, or anything at all about it?

So I'm a fan of movies. A little over a year ago I watched the top 100 of IMDB's top 250. I enjoyed almost all of them. I've since looked through many other lists, but I can't decide if any of them are worth working through (although I have seriously considered the writer's guild's top 100 screenplays). Are there any other lists out there that any of you have enjoyed? Are there any I should particularly avoid?

Looking for a time travel film: I rented it in the early 90s but it seemed to be an 80s flick. Took place somewhere warm, probably CA to save on budget. I recall a strong element of family in it, but it's obviously not BTTF. I think it had two brothers (cousins? best friends?) heading back to the 1950s. I remember them in a nice old car with chrome and fins, but for all I know I may be making that up. It was as much drama as it was anything else. Sorry I don't have more to go on.

Outdoor cinema-fi - I'm running an outdoor community movie series in an urban park. Should attract up to 200 people. I need recommendations for an audio set up. Last year I used my NAD amp/receiver with some home-made speakers; this set up occasionally shorted the amp (it switched off). This year I have a budget of about $1k for amp, speakers and wiring. Any suggestions? What are the major considerations? Thx
