    Hey all, this seems like a great thread. Hopefully someone will know something about this film that I've been trying to find out about for years.

    So I know it's rather old, I seem to remember it having a sort of faded colouring to it like an old carry on film would. There is only one scene I can recall and it goes something like this:

    There are a group of knights/adventurers traversing through some sort of underground dungeon. Accompanying them is a sort of gremlin/goblin creature who they are not on terribly fond of. The group reach a large chasm from which arise numerous, tall, round platforms. Some are coloured red and some blue. The gang discover that if they step on the wrong colour platform they will die, (fall to their deaths or something) so they send their goblin companion to a nearby goblin king creature who lives inside this subterranean complex to try and ascertain what colour is the safe route. The king however, with promises of treasure, convinces the goblin to tell the group the that wrong colour is safe, sending them to their deaths.

    Here is where it gets hazy. The goblin returns and lies to the knights but I seem to remember that due to his rudeness and erraticness they discover he is lying, throw him on one of the coloured pillars which sends him to the depths of the chasm, allowing the knights to continue their voyage.

    I've tried so many times to find this. I don't think it was that Monty Python film, it was far too serious and I've watched it since. It's not this 'Labyrinth' film with David Bowie from what I can establish. It might even be a television series for all I know, I'm rather useless so if anyone has any clue as to what this scene could be from I'd be so grateful.

    Cheers!

    Not sure from some parts of your description if I'm right, but it sounds a bit like "The Princess and the Goblin".

    It wasn't animated and from what I can recall it didn't have any children in. Thanks for spending time trying to find it for me though, never mind!

    Alright, I have tried to track down these 2 films to no avail. The bad news is that I only remember one scene (two max) from each film. So, here goes:

    1). I only remember one scene where there were two women sitting on their sunloungers by the pool. One of the women (who was in a bikini) was talking to someone throughout the entire scene. During the scene, another woman in an orange one-piece decided to have a short dip in the pool and came back to her sunlounger once the scene ended.

    2). Another film - I remember two scenes. One was when two women were having a road trip and one woman dropped something. She bent over to try and pick it up, revealing some of her underwear and a motorbiker came into view. He and the other woman made silly faces until he crashed into a set of cones. Once the woman picked up her item, she asked her friend if everything was okay (I think).

    Then, another scene had two people stuck to each other and a crowd of people helped to separate them.

      I don't know if this is English or foreign, it's a Nazi film;
      Basically I remember a scene where there's a drinks reception for Nazis that are moving up through the ranks, in the same film I also remember a scene at the train station when he's trying to buy a ticket for himself or someone else (I can't recall) and he's stopped. Does anyone know the film?

      Similar, but it's definitely not one of the Saw plots.

      Hi all,

      In 2005, I watched a film late at night, and it was really good, I'd like to watch it again, but I cannot remember what it is called. Unfortunately, I can only remember two things about it:

      - there is a black guy, and at one point, he seems to have some form of bug crawling through his skin. I think he had a white vest top on.
      - at the end, there is some sort of dinner dance, where a man is dancing with his wife, and he gets shot. I think I remember this being planned? I recall him being the president maybe.

      I'm pretty sure the word 'american' was in the title.

      Does anyone know what film I am going on about?

      Thanks.
      omg ive seen this film I remember the bit about the black man in the vest top and the bug under his skin but I cant remember what it was called and I really want to know now

      This is a bit of a long-shot, but I saw this film years ago, and it's been bugging me for a while that I can't remember the name of it!!

      I'm sure it was released sometime in the 2000s. The main protagonist is a guy who is raised in a very working class family (in England somewhere) and abused by his mum (but has an OK relationship with his dad). It starts off with him as a child, and follows him into his teenage years, and then adulthood.

      He's picked on in school (I think he has a positive relationship with one of the primary school teachers) and eventually taken into care (but his other siblings aren't), then is eventually fostered into a good family. He ends up on the wrong side of the law a few times, and then ends up getting into cagefighting (I think) and is really good at it. A great deal of the film is focused on his fighting career.

      At some point, he gets into gambling, and there's something with another man and a pub, but I'm not too sure what.

      Near the end of the film, the guy goes back to his old house and is sleeping on a bed against a wall, potentially injured (I think due to the cagefighting??). I also think he used to draw on his wall as a child (but I'm not 100% about this).

      Again, it's been bugging me for a while, so any ideas/suggestions/knowledge is gratefully appreciated!

      Basically this guy gets a mexican fired then employs him to mow his lawn and his arm comes off in the lawnmower so he needs to get loads of money for the operation to get his arm back on.

      He pretends to be a retard and fix the special olympics in a betting scam by winning it but the real retards find out that he is a fake retard and that is as far as I got but I want to watch the rest of it!

      Does anybody know what is is?
      "Retard"? What decade are we living in again?
