    The plot: basically some kid fails to get into university and so makes like fake letter heading paper to show his father to pretend he's at uni. His father then wants to visit so he hires a building next to a real university and gets it done up so his father can visit, and he makes an online website with enrolment. The issue is that thousands begin to enrol. Then basically at the end the kid gets local government permission to make his uni official and his father is real proud of him.

    What's the title?

    Cheers.

    I started talking with my family today about 2 films I saw years ago but I can't remember the names of them and neither can my family!

    First one, a man's wife and child get kidnapped and held hostage on a boat. The man is a cop/cia agent/ something like that, and tries to get his wife and child back. I know it was made in the 90s but I couldn't tell you who starred in it at all!

    Second one, I remember seeing it on tv when I was little and found it terrifying. All I remember from it was that someone was going round a city and kept finding small body parts with some sticky liquid on them. At one point in the film this person is looking in a dark room (possibly a tunnel) that has all this thick, yellow sticky stuff on the walls and suddenly a person/monster comes out of the yellow stuff and grabs onto the other person. I assume the person/monster in the walls was the one who was responsible for all the body parts all over the city. Then I can't remember anything that happens inbetween that and the end, but the film finishes with zooming away from the main characters up into a tree, which has a human finger dangling from a branch. Scared me to death at the time, but I'm curious to know what film it is.

    If anyone has any ideas as to what these films might be, please let me know! The second one has been bugging me throughout my life ever since I saw it and that was like 15 years ago!

    Hey everyone
    In our general studies lecture at college a few weeks ago we were discussing the death penalty. We got shown a clip from a film but I cant remember its name, its got this big black guy who is wrongly accused of raping and killing a white woman or something, in the scene he is executed by the electric chair. I think ive also seen him in daredevil.

    Does anyone know what the films called?
    It looked really interesting.
    Thanks in advance.

    Green Mile is incredibly over-rated. The book is a 1000x times better. After reading the book I couldn't so much as bare to watch the film. They completely butchered it.
