I'm desperately trying to find two movies that I *believe* are from the 80's, as I have vague recollections of seeing them on TV in the mid 80's when I was a young child. All I remember are snippets, so any help would be great!:

First movie: I think it's a horror/psychological thriller type movie. All I can remember is a woman living in a large house. There are many shots of a swimming pool in her backyard with lots of leaves in it. She has a statue of a dwarf (I think it's one of the Seven Dwarves) at the bottom of her stairs. She one day looks at the statue and finds that it's wet (it presumably went in the swimming pool???). That's all I can remember.

Second movie: I have no idea what the actor's name is. He would have probably been in his 40s or 50s, he's got a round face, he's bald, and har piercing blue or green eyes. He may even be British. He has starred in other movies, and is quite an intense character. He plays (I think) a college professor and all I can remember is him giving a lecture to his class and talking about bees, and either showing his class a film clip of bees or projecting images of bees on an overhead projector.

These two films have racked my brain for so long, any help would be great!

Thanks!

Ok, I have been checking this site out for awhile, but I joined the forum, because I watched this movie a bunch of times when i was a child, but cannot for the life of me find it anywhere on the internet...1st off I wanna say it is NOT "Just One of the Guys"

I have checked every page & I think one other person might have been talking about it, but there was no response, so i'll give it a try.


Ok, it is about a girl who wants to be a boy, & in order to become a male she does some sort of ritual on the roof of her house (or outside atleast) during an eclipse, and when she wakes up in the morning she is a boy, & that is about all I remember...other than the girl had dark hair...(and she may have had a sister--but that is sketchy in my memory)

I have another one...but it may be from the late 70's, it is about a female figure skater, and a boy whose family owns a rolling skating rink, anyways they become partners & hate each other, he drops her & she is in the hospital. They fall in love during the recovery. He has to get on a plane & before he leaves she shows him that she got her braces off. And he ends up dying in a plane crash & she ends up going to the olympics solo. Both of the leads are blondes I think.

What is the name of the movie that has orphan girls singing yakety yak and cleaning the kitchen. This is the only part of the movie that I can remember. I know it's not Annie.

What is the film I think it was a horror movie where someone got trapped in a house in a grate/fire place which had bars stopping them getting out of the fireplace. I know it's vague worth a try though.

Can somebody please tell me the title of a sci-fi movie? Here's what I remember: Bad guys in white space suits & helmets with flamethrowers fighting against human resistance. There may be horses or motorcycles but can't remember who's riding what. Thanks for your help.

This forum is AWESOME. I have an obsession with eighties movies and music so I'm siked! I was actually looking for a movie title and was going to post, but I found it -Anyone see "My Best Friend Is A Vampire?" I'm bummed out because there is nowhere for me to purchase it [Frown] . But that's OK because I ordered my second runner up on Netflix ("Once Bitten"). By the way, I'm Amy [Big Grin]

First off, i'd like to say hi to everyone here that shares my obsession with the eighties. I was still in kindergarten then, but I remember the second half of the decade as a wonderful period. Anyway, I have two questions:

1) I'm looking for the title of a summer commedy, the plot was about a girl band, kinda like The Bangles, a lot of the scenes tale part at the beach... I've seen it on TV in Croatia (on Sky and Filmet back in the day on cable) a couple of times, but I was like 5 then, so I don't remember much of it, just that the girls were super-cute

2) ...and I'd like to know the brand and the model name of those Blues Brothers sunglasses, they were popular at the time, Corey Feldman wore those in Burbs, Redman even weras them today. but I don't know who manufactures them.

So please help me out, thanks!

2) During the Blues Brothers Movie, Jake wore Ray-Ban 5022C15 Sunglasses (a.k.a. Wayfarer I), with brown frames and black lenses. Genuine '5022' Ray-ban sunglasses have the '5022' written on the frames.

Oreb, sounds like the movie you are talking about is Satisfaction. I love this movie! Could be wrong, but it's about a girl band and most of the scenes are on the beach. The main character falls in love with Liam Neison (sp?). Julia Roberts is also in it...Hope that helps.

I don't remember movie exactly, and I don't know is it belongs to the 80's or 90's. I was kid when I watch this, so I don't remember exactly. Anyway, there is some king of SCI-FI movie, where kids have remote control (I don know is it remote control exactly), and can see on TV that they parents are on cartoon, and, with this remote control they traveling trough time. I remember, that some negative guy, worked as DJ somewhere..
Anyway, the story is about click on the remote control, and travel through time, or places...

Thanx!!!

Hi, Im trying to think of this 80s comedy, in one part the lead character is caught having sex in a shop window and there are loads of people on the street looking in, the only other part i remember is a character who is a bum lives in a big carboard and spits a load of toothpaste(or something) out each morning-i know this description is vague. All i know is that its defo not either "mannequin" or "down&out in b hills" though.

I come to the site periodically, but i've never been in the forums before. This is some really good stuff here!

My question (which I hope it will be answered) has been bugging me off and on since I last saw it around my Kindergarden years:

Anyone know a movie that was about this girl in a yellow dress (I think red/orange hair) who'd go outside and have adventures? I remember it was animation most of the time and in the end she's turn "real" again after the adventure was over. She was accompanied by a Koala bear with glasses, I remember once scene where he did something and she had to put eye drops on him.

I've found most of my childhood movies on my own but this one is pretty much unatainable without some help. Last I heard there were more movies like it, but I don't remember any of them. I have a feeling its a UK or Canadian production as well, if that helps.


Thanks in advance!

There were several of these films, actually, and they were frequently shown on the Disney Channel throughout the 80s. The girl's name was Dot, and she had various animal friends from film to film--Australian animals, so it makes sense to presume the films were made there. As I recall, only one actually had her in live action bookends; in the others she was completely animated (although one that featured her going underwater, presumably off the Great Barrier Reef, to help the whales featured live action whale footage during the end credits). As for their exact titles, I don't remember at the moment.

Ah, I had no idea there were more australian animals in there. I just remember the Koala, guess I should've known then.

Using the information you gave me, I found out the movie was called (I feel like slapping myself) "Dot and the Koala" (1985).

Thanks. [Smile]
