  2. QUESTION:
    what was the name of this movie that used to come on in the 90s or early 2000s on mtv or vh1?
    about a gay teenager who was kid napped and killed by like 3 or two white boys and they like tied him up to a fince in the middle of nowhere?? any one kno the name of that movie?

    • ANSWER:
      I believe you are thinking of Anatomy of a Hate Crime.. it aired originally on MTV and the first night it was followed by about an hour where they listed the names of people killed or injured by hate crimes. (while not authorized by the family this one was about Mathew Shepard.. but they never really say so). around the same time another movie was aired on lifetime that was the Mathew Shepard story and authorized by the family.. (I can't remember the name off hand.. grr... it was about these people that go to the town to get information as they are writing a play.. and they interviewed people that knew him, and people that new the killers.. etc... this one had Christina Ricci playing one of Mathew's friends.. )
  3. QUESTION:
    What movie do you think this is?
    Ok I think the movie is a lifetime movie, but Im not sure. My parents watched it when I was a kid and I think it was made around the 90s or early early 2000s. It is where this teen guy and his blonde haired girlfriend kill this red haired girl because the red haired girl liked the boy. Lol I dont remember much about it but I just thought about it and it is buggin me that I cant think of it. If you have any suggestions on what this movie might be please list them. thanks
    Well I cant remember much about the movie but I think it is a lifetime movie and this boy and this blonde haired girl are together, but this red/blonde haired girl likes the guy. So the blonde haired girl and the guy murdered the red haired girl. If Im not mistaken, it may have been based on a true story. Anyway can you just suggest movies you think this one might be?

      Dead Before Dawn (1993 TV movie)
      starring Cheryl Ladd, Jameson Parker, G.W. Bailey, Kim Coates, Matt Clark, Keone Young, Hope Lange, Jensen Daggett
      IMDb synopsis:
      Rich and successful with two lovely children, Robert and Linda Edelman seem to have the perfect marriage. But Beneath the surface gloss lies another story: for years, Linda has suffered violent physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her husband. Finally, she summons the courage to file for divorce. But, with her marriage nearly over, the real nightmare begins. Enraged, Robert vows revenge on the wife who has dared to stand up to him. Determined to keep both his reputation and his children, Robert plans his own special "divorce": He hires a hitman. But only by becoming the live bait to trap her murderous husband can Linda have any hope of staying alive.
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      I watched this one quite recently, so I had it in my film journal. I knew I'd recognize the name when I saw the actors' names I included in my listing: Cheryl Ladd and Jameson Parker (who is fantastic as A.J. Simon in "Simon & Simon" TV series).
  5. QUESTION:
    Looking for the name of a lifetime movie?
    I know theres a ton of them, so its hard... but this one was from either the 80s or 90s.
    It was about a guy who either pretended to be a religious man, or was just a religious psychopath who killed his entire family to "protect them from sin" or something. I remember he killed his daugther in the kitchen while she was drinking a glass of milk, and the son while he was by a fish tank? He also killed his mother who lived at the home.
    I also remember him getting married after and getting caught 40 years later or something and having one of thos eprison visit phone calls with his new wife.

    Sorry I cant think of more details, but I'm wanting to think the movie had "stranger" in the title.
    Any guesses? x_x

  6. QUESTION:
    Help! What's the name of this movie?
    My mom thinks I'm insane, so I need to prove her wrong.

    I watched this one movie on TV with my mom years ago, probably 2006 or earlier, probably on Lifetime, but not sure. The movie was made probably in the 90s or early 2000s

    It's about this little boy, probably about 8-11 years old. He's well to do, and his parents are workaholics and never have any time for him. Everyday, he walks home from school, and he and some other kids go inside this one store. I'm not sure if it's a candy store or a toy store, but someplace a kid would go into. A blonde lady works there; she may even own the store. She's really nice, and I can recall one scene where she blows bubbles for the kids in the store.

    One morning, the little boy wakes up and his parents don't notice him at all. It was like he didn't exist. When he goes outside, this is confirmed; nobody can see him. At the end, he witnesses his birth or something, and the blonde lady is holding him as a baby, in front of open hospital doors, wearing scrubs with a blinding bright light behind her, and it turns out she's his real mom.

    I hope that was helpful. I really need to prove my mom wrong! Serious answers, please; I don't want to end up on chatroulettetrolling.com.

      Amazing Stories (TV anthology series)
      "What If...?
      IMDb synopsis:
      Ignored by his self-absorbed, social-climbing parents, 5-year-old Jonah Kelley (Jake Hart) wanders his lonely, sterile house then the outside world, searching for someone who will see him, while things and people disappear in his wake. // Also in the cast are Susan Swift, Clare Kirkconnell and Tom McConnell.
      IMDb review:
      Jonah asks his parents not to leave him alone, but they want to go to a party. Jonah is afraid and asks what if they don't return. His parents don't seem to care about him very much. It seems to be more important to them to tell him not to leave his things lying around than to reassure him. The babysitter isn't very friendly to him either. Then, strange things begin to happen. First, Jonah's toy firetruck disappears, then other things and even people disappear. It seems Jonah's parents don't even notice him any longer. What is happening? // As you describe, there is a happy ending in which he does end up with parents who will love him.
      TRIVIA:
      The story was written by Anne Spielberg, sister of Stephen Spielberg, who created this TV series.

      No wonder I couldn't recall this one because I've only seen it one time, and I don't recall seeing it listed when syndicated episodes are shown. Generally, they show the same ones repeatedly. I'm going to see if it's available at YouTube.

  7. QUESTION:
    What are some good old movies?
    I know it's a pretty ambiguous question...it can be as old as you want it to be, or a recent 90s movie. A 90s movie I really loved was The Long Walk Home and this movie that usually airs on Lifetime about some woman running away from her creepy, abusive husband. I've only seen two black and white movies but I didn't like them. One was 12 Angry Jurors and the other some movie about some court case on Creationism in schools. I'm willing to give it a shot, though. I think I'm gonna get Casablanca, Citizen Kane and The Grapes of Wrath to watch. Action movies aren't my type.

    Any advice will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      Casablanca is a great on to start with. I would save Citizen Kane for later though, its not good to start with until you really know how to appreciate film - but it's still amazing.

      Heres some films i think would be good to start with (best to least):
      -North By Northwest
      -Notorious
      -On the Waterfront---you have to see this one at least
      -To Have and Have Not
      -Suspicious
      -The Pride of The Yankees

      If you're just getting into black and white and you dont know, just get a bunch of Humphrey Bogart and Cary Grant films.

      Once you're really into film studying watch these:
      -Gone with the Wind
      -The Maltese Falcon
      -Psycho
      -The Big Sleep - my favorite, its confusing as hell and you gotta watch it more than once to understand it.

      good luck with your list!

  9. QUESTION:
    How (not why) can Democrats still support the Clintons?
    It is obvious that they will do and say anything to win. After reading Primary Colors, watching The War Room, observing their sickening attacks on Obama-a fellow Dem. throughout this process, and paying attention to this process for awhile, I have come to the conclusion that these two individuals are not concerned about our country, but about how to win and that is all. How can any Dem. want to go back to this diviseness? Bill Clinton is like a bad ex-boyfriend. He looks good with a few years of distance, but if you get back together with him, all the bad things that went along with the Clinton administration will come back. Furthermore, If Hillary is the nominee, the general election will be very tight. She does not have the support of the Independents. What are Dems. thinking? The 90s are over!!

    • ANSWER:
      Primary Colors was a great....Movie....I liked it very much & am a big fan of Emma Thompson....

      Now....aside from a fictional, "based on" account....

      It is a shame that Bill's indescretion w/ Lewinsky, et al is all that people seem to remember about his Presidency. You forget that for the first time in years, our country was paying off it's debt and there was a surplus of money in the budget. The US was a respected leader in the world. Small businesses thrived, education was valued and there was a renewed interest, on the part of young people, in going forward and improving their lives and the community.

      We now have the failed No Child Left Behind educational policy w/ teachers being forced to teach to test requirements and not the individucal child's needs. As a country, we have lost the respect of most of the world. We have a Pres. who can not speak properly AND a lot of middle class families who are one healthcare crisis away from bancrupcy and that's WITH "INSURANCE"!

      Hillary has been working, in particular, on educational, healthcare issues and women's issues all of her life - in many cases - pro bono. (I have printed a short list below.) Do you think that the "attacks" against Hillary are not from the Obama campaign and perhaps some from Republicans who would love Obama to win? If you really believe that both candidates campaigns are not slinging the mud, then you are truly naive.

      Hillary does have the support of Independents and she, more than Obama has the strength and experience to face a Republican candidate. Obama may grow to be a good candidate in another 4 to 8 years, but he is not there yet....he has stepping stoned his way to his current position & was lucky to have had the opportunity to make a great speach at the last Dem. Convention....but he needs to be present and actually vote in the Senate....he needs to declare and stick by his positions....

      Hillary has been active in a number of organizations concerned with the welfare of children after law school ---often worked for FREE and was the first female partner at Rose Law Firm in 1979 and was listed as one of the one hundred most influential lawyers in America in 1988 and 1991. Hillary advised the Children's Defense Fund in Cambridge and joined the impeachment inquiry staff advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives.

      President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the board of the Legal Services Corporation She chaired the Arkansas Educational Standards Committee, co-founded the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, and served on the boards of the Arkansas Children's Hospital, Legal Services, and the Children's Defense Fund.

      Organizations:
      Co-Founder, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families
      Board Member, Arkansas Children's Hospital
      Board Member, Children's Defense Fund
      Awards
      -Humanitarian Award, Elie Wiesel Foundation
      -Women Who Make A Difference Lifetime Achievement Award, Family Circle
      -President's Award, League of United Latin American Citizens
      -International Women's Philanthropy Award, Lion of Judah Conference of Combined Jewish Philanthropies
      -Distinguished Bridge Builder Award, Leon H. Sullivan Foundation
      -Recognition, Military Order of the Purple Heart
      -Distinguished Service Award, National Association of Elementary School Principals
      -Bully Pulpit Award, National Council for Adoption
      -Black Women of Courage Award, National Federation of Black Women Business Owners
      -Martin Luther King Jr. Award, Progressive National Baptist Convention
      - Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service
      -Woman of Steel - Role Model of the Year, United Steel Workers of America
      -Arkansas Woman of the Year-1983
      -Arkansas Mother of the Year-1984
      Hillary won many admirers for her staunch support for women around the world and her commitment to children's issues.

  10. QUESTION:
    How would describe the humour on the 1980s? 90s? American comedy movie called "Airplane"?

    how it is funny?? how tries? what are examples?

    bizzare?
    what was the name of the actor that starred in it? how he was funny? can give examples from movie? or other situations?

    • ANSWER:
      Robert Hayes starred in "Airplane"......arguably the FUNNIEST movie EVER made.!

      It also starred Robert Stack, Leslie Neilsen, Lloyd Bridges (in the most memorable scene------"Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue!" ) and many, many other stars. .....and had an endless list of cameo's .....including Wilt Chamberlain.

      The type of humor was mostly PARODY, and SPOOF...........mocking all other airplane disaster movies..........and other pop culture references of the time........like the "Saturday Night Fever" scene....with a good deal of slapstick, and word play thrown in.

      There were also COUNTLESS sight jokes....in the background.....from posters on the wall, to the air controller guy, loading his laundry into one of the radar screens.

      You could literally watch it 100 times, and see something NEW every time.

      Julie Hagerty was the female lead......in the role of her lifetime.........and Beaver's mom........Barbara Billingsly was one of the cameo's.......the old lady who spoke "Jive".

      The film is a classic for 100 reasons........and has never been successfully duplicated or surpassed in amount of sheer, genuine REAL laughs.

      The sequel was GOOD.........but the original is priceless.
