    Hi, a friend of mine (honestly) needs help with the title of a film. We can not think of it, it is starting to bug me probably more than him...

    1. About 1 or 2 people, definately not a group
    2. They are trying to win a contest
    3. They have to search/find letters, like Scrabble
    4. The word is long, and probably makes no sense
    5. It may begin with an S
    6. Probably came out between 1985-1995
    7. Not an action, comedy, family or sci-fi
    8. Possibly a mother and a boy

    Any help would be appreciated, please feel free to post your own queries for films as well.

    Ryan

    Here is today's flicks! Any help would be appreciated.

    Both are Sci-Fi related.
    Movie #1

    Made between either the 60's or the early 80's.
    Dystopia (post-apocalyptic) kinda film with one hero
    Man is in a brown leather bomber jacket for most of the film
    There is a monster he must kill (I believe a guy in suit kinda thing)
    Has to find or put together this gun which fits over his entire arm.
    Film takes place almost entirely in a desert wasteland.

    Movie #2

    Made in the 80's or late 70's
    Hero is either a time traveler or from another dimension
    Man has black hair and tight black garb, complete with black sunglasses, wristbands, and tight black wifebeater.
    Man falls in love (or must save) a ballerina.
    Man is being chased by some Datth Vader copy cat in a cape or something.
    Takes place in a city like NY or LA or something.


    Could it be Escape from LA or NY?

    I am not purposely trying to bump this thread to recieve attention, I honestly forget that I already made it.

    If anyone knows the answer to the previous movies, it would be really appreciated!

    -

    Ok, I have another movie.

    -

    Came out in early 1990's.
    British movie, or atleast takes place in England.
    A kid's spy movie.
    Rated PG-13 in America
    In the end, one of the kid's is in a giant egg.
    One scene with frank sexual dialouge (which got me introuble with the parents. [​IMG] )
    All the kids are white, with only one black male in the cast.
    It is not Robert Rodriguez' Spy Kids.

    Thank you in advance!

    Thanks Brett -

    I tried "If Looks Could Kill" on IMDB, and got 3 results. But none of them sound that close to the movie I have in mind. This is a kid's movie for the most part, and I do not think that any guns were involved, sorry Richard Greico. [​IMG]

    Ryan, are we playing a game here? It certainly looks that way. Please advise, or I'll move the thread over to Polls within an hour.

    Came out in 1975
    Hollywood movie, takes place in Amity, Long Island.
    An adventure/thriller about a killer shark.
    Rated PG in America.
    In the end, a character named Quint slides into the mouth of the giant shark.
    One scene with spooky dialouge about the sinking of the Indianapolis.
    The shark is a Great White, with only a Tiger Shark the cast.
    It is not Robert Rodriguez' Spy Kids.

    I saw this movie once about a bus that had to speed around a city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, it would explode. I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

    I am sorry, I was not online at the time... It could be a game if you want, but I am really looking for the title of the movie. I do not know the answer at all and it is seriously getting on my nerves. [​IMG]

    Steve, I saw that movie. It was good.

    That reminds me of this movie I saw a few years ago. It was about this videotape, and if you watch it, then the spirit of a dead girl crawls through your TV set and kills you. I think it was called, "Change the Channel, You Dumbass".

    Well, since no one has any idea about the last few movies, hopefully I will have better luck with this one:

    1. Kid's sci-fi movie,
    2. Family orientated
    3. KIds build some sort of ship in basement and fly to outspace
    4. The radio plays a big part in the movie
    5. It takes a long time for them to actually make it into space, and they do see aliens eventually
    6. Made in the late 1980's
    7. 4 boys

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    This last one should be the Explorers with River Phoenix.

    Of course, the other one was Jaws

    YMMV
