Evil Psychiatrists & Texas in the Movies?

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.

Mysterious island movie?

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)

Recurring in-jokes/motifs in film and tv?

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.

What Oedipus Rex movie was that?

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?

Four Shades of Brown: Swedish movie on DVD?

After seeing it at the Chicago International Film Festival a couple years ago, I've been -- to no avail -- waiting for / trying to track down a copy (dvd or otherwise) of the film Four Shades of Brown or in its language "Fyra nyanser av brunt".

What's the phone-like sound at the end of my video tapes?

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?

Best of the best movies lists?

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?

What non-BTTF 1980s time travel movie am I thinking of?

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.

Amp & speaker recommendations for outdoor movie series

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

airline movies

Why are movies on airplanes so bad? I just sat through 12 hours of oxygen-deprived mediocrity (Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Rumor Has It, King Kong, The Transporter 2). I mean, it is just simple economics -- do the airline companies get a better deal on movies that suck? But then why does it cost no more to watch or rent a good movie than a bad one? If they're aiming for wide mainstream taste, couldn't they at least have things everyone wanted to see -- movies that have won awards, or genuinely done well at the box office?
