Name that film

Asking for a friend, because this movie (TV show?) sounds fascinating. He says he watched the last 10 minutes of it about 20 years ago. What he remembers of the ending is after the cut. [more inside]

A movie with a kid-killing bull

I have a dim memory of seeing a movie on television in which a young person is killed by a bull after wandering into its fenced-off bull field, but I haven't had any luck searching for a film title. [more inside]

Good mystery movies to watch?

I'd like to get some good mystery movie recommendations from the 80s on. It's OK if they veer toward the thriller, like Michael Clayton, ridiculous like Ford Fairlaine, noirish like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, or are a more standard outing with a strong, interesting, well developed detective lead like Zero Effect. Drawing room mysteries totally A-OK too. Super bonus points if I can stream them now on Hulu plus or Netflix.

Do you know this movie from these few details?

Okay, I am trying to figure out what this movie is. If you know it please let me know. Sorry for the scant amount of details. The movie would be made in 1987 or earlier. It is a sci fi or horror that has a scene where a man comes into a room and sees a woman being sucked into an orb. He then kills another man who has the orb who bleeds green (I think) blood. That is all I've got.

British mystery TV shows/movies?

Great British mystery television shows/movies? My girlfriend and I are both rabid fans of good, old-fashioned British whodunnits. Nothing like a rainy Sunday curled up in the sofa to watch an insufferable amateur detective line up a bunch of eccentric upper-class Brits by the fireplace to expose their innermost red herrings: Poirot, Miss Marple, Jonathan Creek, Cadfael, Inspector Alleyn, Sherlock Holmes, Gosford Park -- we have pretty much watched them all, including numerous Agatha Christie movie adaptations. What else is out there? Must be British, or feature mainly Brits; extra points for smoking jackets, quaint little villages in Dorset, vintage automobiles and funny little Frenchmen. (We don't like modern police procedurals that much, though; Inspector Morse is all right, but not quite our cup of tea.)

What is the name of this movie?

I'm trying to find the name of a murder mystery movie (or TV movie) that I've seen a couple of times on TV. It starts out as a reading of a new play. As it goes on, it turns out that the guy who set up the reading is actually trying to solve the murder of his wife by staging a play of it with people who could have killed her. (More inside, including spoilers) [more inside]
