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?

Q-..It was an 80's movie about a girl that turned into a guy. She went to some old store or something like that, and came out with this piece of chalk. When you draw a circle around yourself, and wish on a star, your wish is granted. I think her name as a female was "MILLY". When she changed over into a boy, it was "Willy". It came on HBO back in the early 90's alot when i was a kid. But i know its not the movie called "Just one of the guy's".

I have been racking my brain trying to figure this out. I think it was possibly a made for TV movie, but I'm not sure.

Don't remember much, but, it featured deaf school children being terrorized by a couple of males with guns. Their teacher is trying to protect them.

That's all I've got. Haven't seen it in years. Any leads?

Looking for a movie, either from 1970s or 1980s, i believe its the 80s.

Its in medieval times. I specifically remember there being a little troll that protects a child from some sort of evil empire. Can't be sure if the child was merlin or maybe arthur. Hope thats enough information to get an accurate answer.

thanks so much

I believe that you are talking about the movie Willow, which was directed by Ron Howard and written by George Lucas. An 80's classic, in my opinion:

Looking for a movie i watched a long time ago, i think it was in the mid eighties, cant remember much of it but basically it was about some kind of an astronaut whos filming solar flares and gets him by a freak solar wave, later he wakes up in the hospital and finds he has these powers where he can run fast and read and write fast too. His eyes also change colour from yellow and then to red depending on how much solar energy he uses up.
Can anyone suggest what this movie was called please?

Hey Nick, it looks like you really know your movies, maybe you can help me with this one. It's an 80's movie with a boy in a city that swings around like Tarzan, the kid kinda looks like the the boy from Quiet Cool, if that helps but I don't think it's him. At one point in the movie he spies on a couple making out and then later relates it to a female character in a ridimentary way as "body bump". Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hello all, my brother just reminded me of a movie we used to watch when we were very little. all I can remember from it is 1 scene where a guy is swinging on a horizontal pole, and another guy was riding his bicycle underneath, he didn't see him and kicked him in the head knocking him off his bike. I remember it was a scary movie set in some old village inhabited by some sort of crazy arab people or something. I only remember that scene because we used to rewind it literally dozens of times and laugh all the way through it. Please help me remember the name, I'm sure it was made in the eighties.
Thanking you in advance, Dan.

Hello everyone! I recently started a list of all the movies I would like to own and racking my brain for any ideas. I remembered a movie from the 80's (I think) and the details are a bit sketchy. So there are two boys, brothers, and I think they are leaving mom to go to dad, or something like that(maybe not), but the younger boy believes he is a robot/android(part of me thinks that he believes his father is responsible), another part they are at a tanning salon and the younger boy gets very red. Um,... another part the boys find a woman to give them a ride and the police show up and the boys say their mother is deaf and needs a special telephone device to call her. At some point the younger boy tried to prove he's a robot by throwing a bottle at a specific letter on a billboard. Sorry my details are vague and scattered. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot everyone.

Hi all, you guys are amazing with your movie knowledge. I hope you can help me remember a couple movie titles.

The first one I'm certain was from the 80's. I don't remember too much of it except I think it kinda loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood. It had a very surreal, dreamlike quality to it.

The second. It must have been from 78-79 because I remember seeing it at the drive in along with Laserblast, which was made in 78. All i remember from this movie was that there were these very small alien spacecraft. (very similar to those in Batteries Not Included) And these aliens were not friendly. There were some people on a farm being attacked by them. Thats all I can remember of it.

Not a whole lot to go on.

I hope someone can id this movie for me, in this thread. Been searching the lead actor, I'm sure he has light (blue?) eyes and brown(or dark) hair because I remember his eyes really stood out. The story is about a man in the military whose job was a driver for a senior officer and so there were lot of high speed driving scenes, and they were in a foreign country. There was a ballroom scene and I think he drove past the Berlin wall with a woman. Near the end he rides a motorcycle behind an 'active' military base to find out that it's not and that apparently there was an accident (a flashback) and everyone got killed in an explosion. He took some pictures for evidence then had to escape from people guarding this secret. He reached his superior officers but was told to hand over the film because they wanted to keep this cover-up, he gave them a fake and gave his friend the film.

Okay I am not sure if anyone knows or has already named this movie but, it's been driving me crazy because I can't think of the name or who stars in it or the plot. All I remember is a scene where the boy is working on a bike seat for this girl and he shrinks down very small, ends up inside her panties and while she's in class causes her to have an orgasm by tugging or climbing on her pubic hairs. The whole scene is hilarious and I truly can't remember if it's from the late 70's in the 80's or very early 90's. Any and all help would be great, Thanks.

Help!!

My spouse described a 1980's movie to me, and though I pride myself on my knowledge of the genre, I am thoroughly STUMPED! Here is what was described:

Story of a boy who grows up in an upper class home with 2 loving parents, basically an entitled life, and when he is a teen he is killed somehow, but he is reincarnated, this time to a poor, low-class family. He looks EXACTLY the same in his second life as he did in the first life. The only other thing that can be remembered about the film is a part sometime toward the end of the movie where the boy is not quite a teenager anymore and is hitchhiking, and he is picked up by the now-older parents from his first life. They look at him in recognition and look at each other, unbelieving...and other than that, total blank.

Please help me redeem myself!!! Thanks!

Need help with this one.. Can not remember the title of it at all !!

Early to mid eighties (hopefully not 70s) but it was about a group of kids that hang out in abandon houses and have problems at school and their is a big town meeting concerning all the kids and they end up over taking the school and at the end of the movie they are all taken away on a bus and you see the main kid looking out the window of the bus and he is smiling and all the kids are waving on the bridges and cheering..

Hopefully someone can help - I have always remembered this movie but no one knows what the heck I am talking about !!
