    These two have been bugging me for a while:
    1) An '80s sci-fi film about alien invaders who "take over" homans. They do this by putting them in some sort of odd contraption that pokes them in the back of the neck. The characters then know they are aliens because they have band-aids or marks on their necks. This MIGHT be the Tobe Hooper version of "Invaders from Mars."
    2) This one is really bugging me. I know it was a big release, since I saw it in the theater with my parents. A boy is away (at camp?) when he wakes up to find his first morning erection. He is embarresed, and so he tapes himself to his leg. Later, he sees the girl he likes, and you hear tape ripping, and he runs away.
    HELP!

    Thanks for the idea, but I don't think that's it. I'm almost sure this was an 80s movie, since my memory is so fuzzy.

    The second one I believe is Indian Summer starring Elizabeth Perkins, Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Kevin Pollack, and Julie Warner.

    The first one does sound like Invaders From Mars and a possible suggestion for the second one is Book of Love, although I don't remember a scene like the one you mentioned.

    I checked out the trailers at imdb, and I think those are the two films I'm remembering (though I can't remember when exactly I saw Indian Summer).
    Thanks!
