This is a cause for much debate, but I believe the general consensus is 'Moonchild'. That's what the English translation of the German book has him saying.

She then meets a boy that she develops a friendship with but he thinks she is a 'he'. And then, da dum, she falls in love with him but find herself in a dilemma as she wants to remain in the school but loves this boy so much so she finally does tell him, and he's shocked as you can imagine but I am sure that it was a happy ending. I would so love to see it again and I remember watching it when I was about 10/11 so thinking about 1985/6 time. Anybody know the film?

A: "Just One Of the Guys" from 1985


This is not Just one of the Guys, It is another movie but i think it might be late 80's early 90's. Just one of the Guys, the girl wants to win an intern ship for a newspaper and feels by being a woman she will not get the postion, so she pretends to be a guy, she goes to a new school and falls in love with her nerdy friend.

it sure as heck sounds like JUST ONE OF THE GUYS. i just think the facts might be mixed up a little. cause i cannot think of any other movie it would be.

I missed all this but I do know the movie!!!The movie is The Saint of Fort Washington. It's a great movie.....little known but very good. From 1993.....I think thats what my vhs says.... [Wink] It's Danny Glover and Matt Dillon.
It tells a story of two homeless men and it's sad, but more into telling a story of what it's like to not have a home and lose your family and gaining freinds as family....I loved it! Hope this helps!

Think Big - Starring the Barbarian Brothers

The funny thing about that chant is that it used to be something bus drivers used to time their starting of cold diesel engines [so that the glow plugs would get warm enough]! It goes like this:

Chicken bone, chicken bone
Lucky lucky chicken bone
Chicken bone, chicken bone
Lucky lucky chicken bone
Rabbit rabbit, treat 'em good
Lucky lucky, knock on wood
Yogi Bera, Tub McGraw
Fire 'em up!
Kumbaya!

I have a question about a movie. I'm pretty sure it's a 90's movie though, but most of guys seem to know your 90's movies as well.

I don't believe this movie was ever in the theaters, but for awhile they played it a lot on HBO. It was a scary movie, and I think it had something to do with the cable. The TV would start up on it's own, but other weird stuff would happen too. The title might have something to do with electricity or circuit or something like that. I remember that the house burns down at the end.

Hope somebody can help me out...it's not a bunch to go by...thanks...

thunderstealer, this might be a stretch, but I believe the movie you are looking for is:

Shocker (1989)

It's from Wes Craven and played often on HBO in the 90s.

Hello,
I'm trying to figure out the name of this (I believe) made-for-tv movie from the early 80s. It was based off a book about a twisted and cynical blonde-haired teenage girl (I want to say her name was Robin, but I'm not sure) who lives with her recluse writer father in New England. She kills her step-mother, and a few others and buries them in the backyard. She also has this dorky boyfriend who's convinced he's a magician. It's not a horror movie or even a thriller. She seems to kill off these people rather matter-of-factly...just because they're annoying.
I've been going crazy trying to figure out the name of this movie, and would be eternally grateful to anyone who would know the title (or could point me in the direction of finding it out)
Thanks!

Its sounds like Over The Edge to me. I found the name of this film from people on this site too after seeing it once on UK TV along time ago.

If it involved kids getting involved in drugs, LSD - Acid, then this is your film..

Hey guys, I have another movie name I'm looking for. I'm fairly certain it's an 80s movie. I believe it was supposed to be based on a true story of a man being obducted by aliens.

I watched it when I was a little kid, so I can't remember a whole lot of the pictures in the film. I do remember one part though where the guy wakes up after having been obducted and he finds himself in this weird sticky/messy chamber thing, kind of like a cocoon or something. He rips it open and he floats out and sees a bunch more of these things along the walls and he's in kind of a really tall long cylinder shaped room.

I hope this makes sense to someone. Sorry I don't have more of a description. Thanks a bunch.

Hey, I believe I just figured it out.

I think it's "Fire in the Sky," but it's not an 80s movie, it's from 1993...

Hey, I was wondering if you guys could help me out with an 80s cartoon. I remember watching this in school when I was in kindergarten. Several different cartoon characters were all in this one cartoon together, and it was basically a drug awareness cartoon. I remember seeing it on television once after I had watched it in class, but then I never saw or heard of it again. Can anybody help me?

I have a movie question, think it's from the 80s but not entirely sure. It takes place in the 30s or 40s. This man and woman buy and old farmhouse. Murders had happened years ago, in the 20s or something, kind of gangster style. A couple of the characters in the movie actually had something to do with it. Does anyone remotely know what I'm talking about?? Thanks! [Confused]

Help! I am trying to remember what the name of a movie is. In the movie, it keeps replaying a ghost scene where, I want to say the custodian of a school or someone one like that kills a 8 year old girl. He throws her body of the cliff and then the mother comes out and I think jumps off the cliff also. The custodian or the killer keeps whistling and singing some song about dreamin a day dream or walk like a daydream or something like that. This replys until I believe the kids figure out who the killer was. I don't remember much more that that. Thanks!
