Anyway, the first movie (and I'm not sure if its 70's, 80's, or 90's honestly (when you get older, everything starts to just blend together) is I think about a boy and he lives maybe in the jungle, like the Amazon and there's this river and there's something scary in the river and he rides a dolphin ???? Any clue?
It's possible your getting movies mixed-up. But here are some suggestions:

'The Blue Lagoon':

IMDB Blue Lagoon

'Return to the Blue Lagoon':

IMDB Return to the Blue Lagoon

And for a 'monster in the lake':

'The Quest' (aka 'Frog Dreaming' aka 'The Go-Kids):

IMDB The Quest

Hi,

I've scoured the board and the site to see if the movie was there, but I couldn't find it.

I'm pretty sure this was an 80s movie-- my guess would be around 1985-1987. I remember that it starts out that there's a solar eclipse coming. This blonde teen girl has a kid sister and their parents are throwing a big party to watch the eclipse. The girl is in her boyfriend's basement and she gives up her virginity to him. Meanwhile, the solar eclipse occurs and seemingly everyone on Earth is somehow turned to dust (I remember a scene panning showing all the people clothes just lying on the ground). The teen girl and the kid sister reunite and try to figure out what happened. They meet up with some other people including a guy who works in a radio station. I don't remember much else- I don't think any of the actors were very famous and it wasn't a great quality movie or anything.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Thank you so much, atomik! For years I have wondered what this was. I didn't even realize that "Night of the Comet" was it when I read the summary page. I am so happy!

I was looking for this movie i remember watching about 20 years ago. It is about a man who was sent to this desert penal colony for getting drunk and cutting off parking meters. When he get there he somehow leads this group against another group of people for resources. The leader of the other group of people was a murder and thought the main character was too, and that is why he wanted to fight him or something. If i remember correctly it was futuristic.

I hope someone can help me, and im sorry about the bad description i was like 6 when i saw this movie so my perception may be a bit distorted. Anyways Thanks in advance.

The only thing similar that comes to my mind is No Escape. Doubt that is it though, it's from 1994.

ok so i've just got back into watching a while heap of movies i remember growing up with. Last Starfighter, Weird Science, Weekend at Bernies, etc. However there is one that i can only remember a little bit about and not the title.

The lead character pours some sort of chemical on pictures of girls and they come to life. That is all I remember from it and would appreciate any help finding the movie.

Don't think it had anything to do with DNA but it reminds me of the excellent movie Runaway starring Tom Selleck

Hey there all. I'm new here, I wanted to help out but also find out what a movie name was called! I looked and searched through this thread and couldn't find the name of this one, so here goes.

This movie I believe was from the late 80's. It was a pg-13 movie probably(maybe pg), about this young kid(maybe freshman in high school), who found out there were monsters under his bed - and the monsters could take him to another world under his bed - to their world.

In the monster world, I remember there being skateboarders and a lot of what I thought was cool stuff back then - I remember the boy going down to their world every night, and in doing so, i think he started becoming one of them, and during the day at school he had to wear sunglasses(because it was very dark in their world, and our world was too bright), and was very tired because he was up all night.

I remember only seeing this movie on TV, and only maybe 2 or 3 times in my childhood, but of course, the name eludes me, and I can't find much details on the all powerful Google.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks a lot, and I hope to be able to help in the near future.

Is it some sort of spoof? Because the first part about cutting off parking meters is straight out of Cool Hand Luke.

First off this a great forum...wish I found it earlier.

For the last 5-6yrs I have been trying find a movie that I saw on HBO, Cinemax or Showtime anytime from 1987-94. I just can't find it.

The movie is set around teenagers in high school. one scene they are in a gym for a pep rally or some sort gathering. I then remember a kid and his girlfriend getting into a black muscle car and racing around town. the passenger had a remote that could change the street lights from red to green.

I know I am not giving a lot of info, but any idea would great!

thanks

I don't know a movie like that, however, there was an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" in which that happened.

Its an 80's movie and all I can remember from the movie is there is a boy...maybe two boys...there in a house and they are looking out the window, the sky turns dark, they go out the window, then there is a scene change where it shows an old barbershop and an empty street. The boy(s) come up to a carnival...the carousel is on and they go over to it....there is a guy on the carousel with music comin from it....the sky has turned into a storm and this guy gets electrocuted on the carousel.. and that's at the end of the movie..anyone know?
