Its a sci-fi film, the main character is I seem to remember one of them space going rogue type people who gets given a mission to rescue some important people (girls ?) that have been captured. I can't remember much of the middle of the film, except there is a fight scene that revolves around some sort of old battered train or long caravan type vehicle. The end of the film has the captured girls in some sort of circular metal cage along with other captured people. The people in the cage are forced to go through some sort of assault course full of nasty spikey things and traps !! Sounds bizzare I know, not sure if there was an adult theme to this film as I can remember my mum wouldn't let me watch it until my dad came home from work and said I could !!!! [Smile]

Thanks
Becky

Hello!!
Found you're site purely by accident but its fantastic, and i've relived a lot of my childhood reading up on the films i miss!!
However, there's one film i remember seeing as a youngster..that neither myself nor my mum can remember the title, so hoping one of you can help.

Its a bit sketchy, but all i remember is that theres a kid (reminds me slightly of Henry Thomas but that could be my memory playing tricks n thinking of frog dreaming!!) Anyway, this boy somehow meets a man..and it turns out this guy can heal himself if wounded. I think the young boy cuts his hand at one point, and it goes to a close-up shot, n the man touches the wound and it heals up instantly.

The only other bit i remember of the film is that the young boy has either ben told to wait, or hs followed the man, n he has to climb up a ledge/cliff and as he gets to the top there's a snake, n the man is talking to people in the background (Possibly the bad guys!?)

Sorry i don't have much more information. I always thought it was called XMan or something, but current research says i'm wrong. Its also not "Hearts in Atlantis" as my friend suggested, fairly certain it was an 80s film.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Great site!! [Big Grin] Many thanks!!!!!!!!!!! *Mwah!* Jodie xxx

I was curious about a movie I saw some time ago. I saw the movie in the 80's but can't be sure from what time it is from. It was about some guys that were flying over a jungle in a cargo plane, when it crashed. I remember there being two huge twins on board and a small man wearing a sailor hat. To escape from where they were, they built these cars, kind of like a Mad Max thing. I don't remember too much more of the movie except the main character stole this enemy generals (or something) car and was using it during the escape. Thanks for any help.

Update on my previous post. I have since found the movie I was curious about. It aired in 1989 and is called: The Road Raiders. I found an old recorded tape and watched it last night. Now I need to find a VHS or hopefully, DVD of it.

Okay, I only THINK this movie was '80s. It might've been '70s. Definitely no earlier or later than that though. I don't remember much about it, so bear with me.

I think the ending is what will tip someone off to exactly what this movie is. It's been driving me NUTS for YEARS, so PLEASE HELP! [Big Grin]

It was about a group of kids in a classroom. Somehow they ventured outside (I think) and ran into a killer. The killer wore some kind of Halloween mask. I think they entered a cave at some point, but I could be wrong, so scratch that part if need be.

Now the ending: After they were all safe, the "killer" appeared at the window of the classroom, but it was really just one of the kids fooling around with the real killer's mask.

Anyone know? I've been wondering for years.

Thanks!

Devo, WOW, from what I'm reading about the movie now, it sounds like you are right! I wish I could order a copy of this to verify it, but it's out of print everywhere. [Frown] Even if it isn't the same movie, it sounds darn cool. Thanks a million!!!

I was pretty young through the 80's, but I distinctly remember a movie somewhat similar to short circuit or flight of the navigator that had a bunch of smaller robot-type things in it...I don't really remember alot about it, but it seems there is a younger boy in it as well...I have been stumped on this one for a while...it may not even be an 80's movie...but any help would be appreciated...I do remember that the smallest robot would sort of remind one of a crab....round, flat body...Help!! Thanks!!

i think you maybe talking about this film, made by Steven Spielberg and of course hit has a very typical spielberg feel to it...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092494/


*batteries not included (1987)

A group of tenants in an apartment block are being forced to move out so that it can be demolished. The tenants are reluctant to move, so the developers hire a local gang to 'persuade' them to leave. Fortunately, visiting alien mechanical life-forms come to town. When they befriend the tenants, the aliens use their extraterrestrial abilities to defeat the developers

Alright, I'm not sure if this movie was from the 80s or early 90s, and I have never seen anyone inquire about it here before. My memories of this movie are very vague. What I do recall was a group of people who all had special powers. There was a guy, a musician who had the ability to harness electricity and shoot it out of his hands. In one scene, He takes on enemies, allthewhile dancing to some rock song while blasting everyone. Also, For some reason, I recall there being some sort of Yeti in the movie... and maybe a woman was could shrink. But the Musician was in it for sure. Any help would be appreciated. I've been wondering about this movie for years. Thanks.

I am trying to find a movie for my wife, which she says is from the 80's. All she can tell me is it is about a little girl, who goes back in time to the great depression, and tries to stop it with knowledge she has about what causes it. This is all she can remember about it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi, first of all sorry for my not very good English. The movie I’m looking for turns around a girl who had an imaginary friend in her childhood. This friend is similar to the mask (from what I can remember) but without a green face: he also can do “crazy” faces, etc... I know she could make him appear by saying his name three times (not beetle juice). I’m not sure but I think that at the “present” the girl refuses to grow up so her imaginary friend appears again. At another time she is angry with her friend and wishes he could just disappear and then he is hit by a firetruck, leaving only his shoes (that look like the ones of a clown I think) but doesn’t die (he’s imaginary). There is another scene where they (the girl and the crazy friend) are at a party and he peeks under a woman’s skirt, his eyes pop out (like a cartoon) and says “haaaa no panties!” (or something like that). At the end is quite a sad part because the girl has grown up and is leaving his friend, the scene has a surrealist ambient with stairs and smoke…

Thanks for any help you can give [Smile]

Not 100% sure here..because its a long time since i've seen it...but I think the film you refer to is 'Drop Dead Fred' - and if it is, then its 90's, not 80's

My brother and I are desperately searching for a SF-movie title:

This is the scene we both remember:

Two members of the group are speaking to each other via the intranet. One gets startled by the cat and says so. The other one answers something like “how can that be, the cat is here with me”, which means that one of the cat appearances actually isn’t the cat but the monster. (It’s about a monster that can change form).

We don’t remember much else about the movie, that is we believe to remember only some other “facts”:

• The whole movie plays in some kind of subterranean laboratory on EARTH.
• It’s a movie produced between app. 1970 – 1990 (most likely in the 80s).
• There are NO soldiers within this underground facility, it’s neither a military experiment nor a military complex.
• Only a small group of people is working in this place. My brother thinks they were scientists, doing research on some kind of parallel worlds or time shifting. As to me, they could also have been maintenance workers. I remember those wearing blue overalls.
• I remember a brown-long-haired woman to survive and reach the surface again where she is expected by other people.
• It’s a science-fiction and/or horror movie, most likely both.
• As mentioned above we both remember a transforming monster, being able to adopt other forms, like e.g. the cat.

We know that this movie is NOT “The Thing”, “X-tro” or “Alien”.

We would really appreciate your help!!!

ok...this is a cool post and I like how it is all together for people to look up...but it needs to be monitored and consolidated every once in a while, because some questions get over looked and it gets all jumbled up...just a suggestion...

I had post a question a while back about a movie I cant remember...it is about a group of kids training for the olympics...the main character is in love with one of the girls and has problems with his father...any help would be appreciated...

thanks

Not sure if im in the right place plz forgive me if im not, im not even sure the film was made in the 80's i just remember it was around 83/84 i saw it.The nature of the film is quite sad and again forgive me there is a reason y i am looking for this film.What i remember is it's about a young girl possibly a teenager who was abused by her farther, her mother didn't believe her and from what i remember its the story of her fight to be believed, eventually her mother believes her.One scene i remember is the mum,daughter and sister are sitting at a table and the younger sister is saying 'she's lying she's lying'.Right at the end of the film you see the child as a baby in her dads arms in the nursery and he's singing the lullaby ' HUSH LITTLE BABY'. I really hope you can help

You're talking about the very funny National Lampoon's Senior Trip!

Great site and forums, was able to find most of the movies I don't recall their names but one I can't find here or online.

Q: Movie featured a robot dog (but looked like a normal dog). The few things I remember: At one point the dog was guarding/chasing some crooks at a store. Dog responded to special codes to go into different modes or commands? One common word caused him to jump someone knocking him over. The dog had a problem where he would go crazy when someone blew a dog whistle. At the end I think there was several of these dogs or perhaps robot puppies with the same issue and that is when the inventor figured out the problem.

I finally found out it's C.H.O.M.P.S. which come out in 1979 (close!).
