This was a B Grade 80's movie, where it was about a little boy who was adopted by a rich family. I remember he had an older adopted brother who was a monk and sat in his room praying with his swords.
The kid meets this teen brat who kinda takes him under his wing and teaches him how to do the wrong stuff. They then organise to rob his adopted parents home and tie up the whole family. There are scenes in the movie where the little boy swallows a spoon and is then held upside down so it will come out. Anothere scene is where the older teen swallows a fly in class and the teacher puts him in detention. And another scene where when the family is tied up, he rips off the top of the adopted sister.
Anyway, i hope all this helps as im dying to remember the name of this movie....thanks [/LIST] [/LIST]

Q. I have two movies that I have been searching for. First is a movie about a girl BMX'er along the lines of BMX Bandits. I believe it's from New Zealand but could be wrong. All the guy BMX'ers pick on her until she beats their leader in a race. The second would be about a Victorian era little girl that dies in a house and becomes a ghost that sings the Fair-uh-jaques-uh song. I think there's also something about a well. Thanks for any help with these flics.

I'm looking for a movie which may have been made for television. It's about a girl who uses a spell to turn into a boy. The next morning she wakes up and it worked. Her best friend becomes weirded out, but they eventually fall for each other (i think). Any ideas?

jedi-nite, I believe you're talking about the film called "Willy/Milly" aka "Something Special". Somewhat rare, no DVD release but I did manage to get the laserdisc of it though.

Devolution here,

Sounds like Born American, but I don't think that's it, it sounds more like a story from Kurt Vonnegut that might have been made into a movie.

Here's one that's not on the list, that I don't know if anyone will be able to help answer...

It's one of those Comedy/Murder mystery movies, NOT CLUE, MIND YOU, that has like teams of two trying to figure out who killed a person. I believe the team that managed to figure out who the killer was would win cash, posibly. What I remember for a fact is that at the end 1 team would run up, and say that the host-like-guy was someone else, and another team would say he's really a different person... it continued untill the last person, where the accusee removed a mask and was really the person that died, basically canceling out the whole moving. As everyone leaves, one team, An older Asian guy, and his grandson, i believe get in a car, and the old guy blames the grandson for loseing it for them.

It was a story about a high school girl (and if i remember correctly I think she was a babysitter too) who wants to be popular so she visits this lady (possibly a fortune teller or something? She looked old and dressed like one) and that lady helped her wish come true and she became popular. Then another part in the movie she showed the old lady a picture of a pretty woman that she wanted to look just like and it happened.

She ends up with a popular guy and goes and makes out with him in some abandoned house. Thats all I can remember.

Can anyone tell me the name of this movie?

ye it is Teen Witch

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!

This sounds a lot like the movie I was looking for. I think the killer had a clown mask, but i thought their wa several killers.

i'm looking for a movie title. In the movie there was a college kid who was driving i believe it was the Pennsylvania turnpike. He had a calculus book next to him. he was pulled over for speeding, and the cop proved it to him by using the mean value theorem.

Ok, not srue it is an 80's but think so. It was about a girl who was taking guitar lessons on the sly with this guy and fell for him. He was a little older and had a band. She had to get on a bus to get to the lessons. It was a tv movie. thanks. been driving me nuts for years.

It's a 70's film. I think someone answered this in another thread, it's called 'Sooner Or Later':

IMDB Sooner Or Later

Hey, everybody! I need help trying to find the name of these three particular movies...

First, an 80's movie that had 4 teenages that had mutant powers (similar to Misfits of Science, but made into a movie). In the final scene, the girl had to use telekinesis to bring down a helicopter.

Second, a love story about a man who froze himself and thawed out 40 years later and still is in love with the same woman. I originally thought the movie title was "Frozen In Time," but I was wrong.

And lastly, there was a short cartoon special that played on Halloween night that starred several arcade heroes. One of them looked like "Silver Surfer" but his weapon arm was like a pinball. At the end, the evil Space Invaders surrounded the arcade heroes and won. And in the final scene, all that was left was a boy's smoking shoe. I originally thought this was from a "Heavy Metal" cartoon, but this aired so long ago.

Thanks in advance!

Well, 'Misfits of Science' actually was a movie before it was a TV show:

IMDB Misfits Of Science

The other one might be 'Forever Young' with Mel Gibson:

IMDB Forever Young

Don't recognise the third.

I think the movie with the students(kids) might 1993 TV movie They've Taken Our Children: The Chowchilla Kidnapping that aired on ABC Based on an actual 1976 kidnapping where 26 students are commandeered on their school bus on July 15, 1976, near Chowchilla in the San Joaquin Valley.
The three men transferred their hostages to two vans, drove about 100 miles north and put them in a moving van they had buried in a quarry,(Might be the "cave" you're thinking of?)
While they were trying to arrange for the ransom, bus driver Ed Ray (played by KArl Malden"Streets of San Francisco")and some of the older boys dug their way out of the truck and summoned help.

OR THE ENGLISH ACCENTS COMMENT IT MIGHT BE"

FORTRESS 1985
Plot Outline: An Australian school teacher and her students are kidnapped. She and the children fight for their lives and try to escape from their captors.
Plot Synopsis: "Fortress" explores a shocking concept which shows how easily a borderline between a victim and an attacker can be crossed. The children and the teacher, calm and peaceful by nature, when driven beyond their limits by the kidnappers, eventually respond with a cruelty and fury extending that of their oppressors.

Okay, I don't remember much of this movie, it was a horror and was about a group who gets lost on a road trip and find themselves in a seems-to-be abandoned town and the name of it was something like Goblin or Goblins backwards. Anyway they start getting picked off one by one by hideous goblins. Know it?

Meesh 26, could you be thinking of that ultimate classic beyond-bad movie, "Troll 2" (1990)?

I'm almost positive it wasn't Troll 2, I specifically remember it involving Goblins not Trolls. But thanks anyway.

There is this movie or afterschool special I saw when I was little that was a gender bender but I do not think it was just one of the guys. Maybe I am mixing up movies..but the movie I saw was about a girl named millie who liked to go up on her roof and look at stars in her telescope. She had a best friend who was a blond. She was in high school or late middle school. She could get on her roof from her room. One night she wished to be a boy and when she woke up she had a penis? Then her named changed to Willie.

What am I thinking of? Am I mixing up movies?
Thanks
Meg
