It could have been late 70s or early 80s: this guy gets exposed to radiation I think and gained superhuman powers. They only thing that could drain his powers was the color red (or it could have been pink). I remember a scene where he was running to catch something or someone and he had a red scarf (or feather Boa) wrapped around his foot. Another scene had him blowing up a piece of gum the size of a hot air balloon. I know it sounds strange, but can someone help me out? Thanks.

Nevermind, after all these years, I finally stumbled upon the movie. . . AFTER I asked the question. It's "Super Fuzz" (1981).

I tried explaining this movie to people for YEARS!!!!!!!!! You remembered pretty much all I remembered about it. Everyone kept telling me it was Greatest American Hero, which I personally had never heard of until people told me that was it. I knew it wasn't, from their descriptions. Took me nearly 20 years to find out it was Super Fuzz. The way I finally found out was: I met my wife online (through yahoo messenger, not a dating thing!). She's Brazilian, and I lived there for two years with her. Turns out, she's a huge fan of Terence Hill/Bud Spencer films. So I was looking them up to rent for her, and came across Super Fuzz!

I came across it in a strange way myself. I was looking up hot air balloons, and somehow somebody posted about the scene from the movie. I was floored when I finally learned the title.

Here's one that's still stumping me:

I'm looking for a movie I saw late one night years ago, I don't know if it was from the 70s or 80s, but it was about a secret group of women who were trying to gain power of major companies and such. They worshipped I think the goddess Artemis, and their symbol was a bracelet, which had a bow and arrow charm on it. I remember the ending, where the group was destroyed, but one young girl was left and you saw her practicing archery. Can someone help?
