Ok i figured i'd start this for people like me who cant remember where i put my car keys let alone a movie i saw 20 years ago.

Maybe we can make this a sticky or long running thread.

this will basically be a thread where if you cant recall a movie or film you saw, then come here and ask us and maybe we can help you remember it.

1.
Be as descriptive as you can, tell us approximately when you saw it last or when you think it was made. Actors or actresses in it, and anything else that will help us help you remember.

2.
When replying to a person with whom you want to help address them directly so people know you are trying to help that particular person with their movie question

3.
If possible post a link from www.imdb.com so we can look to see if its the one we are thinking of.


So i'll start this off.


This is a movie i saw a couple of times when i was a kid. Early 80's maybe even 1978-80 maybe 82-84 i dont recall.

Its about a woman who develops a growth on her back and the Dr's can't figure out what it is.
The go thru this and that and cant remove it. When they try and remove it, i THINK i remember the Dr's being hurt by IT.
She's in the hospital and this growth just keeps getting bigger and bigger until its like she is giving birth from her back. She later on becomes somewhat possessed by IT.
What it ends up being is this ancient Indian Medicine man trying to reincarnate himself. And he does from what i recall.
As a kid i thought this was a very freaky scarey and good movie and i have for years and years been trying to figure out wth this movie was.

I cant say for sure when it was made or who was in it, all i can say is i saw it on TV when i was a kid, but exactly when i cant say,, probably sometime between '78-'84.

Anyone want to take a stab at this and try and help me remember what movie this is.

There are two movies here that I cant remember:

1. This was a mech warrior or macross style movie, except with live actors in it. I can remember they were working on one of the mechs, and they went out to fight, and a mech got thrown in the audience. That about all I can remember of that.

2. This was a Disney or a Neverending story style movie. I remember there was a kid inside a house, and he walked up some stairs into a ceiling door. The movie opened with a kid inside his house doing choires or something, then he started dreaming. Later in a movie, someone jumped out a window and flew with their pants or shirt....


Sorry about the lack of details, these movies have been going through my head for years and Ive wanted to see them since. I must have been about 4 or 5 when I saw them.

anyone remember a movie that was set in the future in space where this guy was a boxer of some sorts and he had to fight aliens. I think the aliens lived among the humans. I don't remember much else except that there was a handicap system in the form or a red or blue light.

I remember this movie from over 10 years ago or so but have never remembered the name.

*edit* I don't remember any actors names *edit*

Sounds like journey to the center of the earth. It's been remade so many times I don't know which version you are talking about.

hmm there was this movie I saw on TV when I was young... there was a bunch of high schoolers they had a big pickup truck and got lost in the woods... There was some shack there and a crazy guy who killed them off one by one. Probably early nineties. I keep thinking the name is "The Zero Boys" but it can't be because I can't find any move by that name tongue.gif
