Being new, I started to read all the messages in this thread, then noticed that some of the questions I was replying to were asked back in 2006. Then some of the questions started making me go nuts because I remembered movies like the ones described and then could not think of those movies.
I have been trying to find the title to a movie for about a year now.
It is about an elderly widow whose husband was in the railroad biz. She is living alone now and is dillusional. Her life keeps getting upset by these two hobo women dressed in black Charlie Chapin like clothes. At first it is not clear the the Hobos are imaginary. She hides money in a bunch of books and keeps loosing her keys. She blames all her trouble on these Hobos. Her neighbor, a lovely, younger black women is a vegetarian. The neighbor brings her dinners and the widow always complains about the bad food. The widow tells stories about the rail road days and her life with her deceased husband.
Later, a long lost relative comes and tries to get the widow to sell all her belongings. The young women who I thought was played by Sarah Jessica Paker is an antique dealer and tries to put a monetary value on all the widow's belongings without raising her suspicions too much.
The Hobos take her car and crash it in the lawn. The widow talks about selling goldfish during the depression. The antique dealer and black neighbor smoke on the sidewalk hiding their vices from the widow. The widow always answers her door with a small handgun which she theatens to use all the time. The widow falls at one point and blames the hobos for pushing her and tripping her. Her house in on a corner lot in (I bleieve) an old part of N. California--possible by San Francisco.
The black actress is similar to Alfre Woodard. The widow is someone like Patricia Neal. One of the women hobos is heavy-set and the other is thin. The thin hobo is just like Joan Cussack. (I have even searched for Joan C. look alike actresses.) And the last thing is this nagging memory that the title of the movie is two women names--something like Benny and June, Ruby and Beth ----- argh. Please help!
I know this sounds stupid but I remember when I was a child there was this movie about little babies/toddlers that were secret agents and genuises. I have tried for forever to look for it and its not Baby Genuises.
I'm looking for the name of a film but I doesn't come to mind. It's a movie that divers constantly go really deep under the water (using a steal cable to brings them directly down/up) in the ocean on a stable dock in order to gather specimens or look at sharks (I can't really remember). They go down with diving gear and pressured air shells on their backs. The plot thickens when one of them dies because he goes too deep for too long and he runs out of oxygen.
It's NOT any of the following I have already checked them:
Deep Blue Sea
Into the Blue
The film was probably released around the late 1990s.
I don't remember much about this movie. I only remember a couple of scenes. I remember the plot, but maybe I made up the plot just by watching those few scenes. Anyway, it was probably an American movie. Probably shot sometime between 1995-2007. Genre should be one of: crime/drama/thriller/myster/action. So, its not horror, comedy or animation . The movie looked kinda known, perhaps not very well known, but I don't remember it like a very low budget movie. These are the scenes I remember; In a flashback, we see a house and in front of the house, a few men shoots another man and he dies I guess. And a kid(dead man's son probably) sees this. There must be a piano in the house but I'm not sure. It looked like it was 1960s or older in the flashback. But again, I'm not sure. And the other scene I remember; A man(perhaps the kid in the flashback, now grown up) is tied to a pole outdoors, he's kinda unconscious and somebody pours fuel onto him. But an old man rescues the tied man(don't remember how). And here's what I remember about plot: the tied man was looking for his father's killers. And at the end it turns out that the old man(who rescued the tied man) was one of the men who killed the tied man's father. But the tied man(not tied anymore, of course) forgives the old man. And it was a happy ending I guess. Or maybe I'm confused, maybe it was another movie's plot. Whatever...
Most of the movie was taking place in a rural area, I guess. It was sunny(like, Texas or Arizona) and I remember the old man's clothes looked like a villager a little bit.

id appreciate if any helps , thanks.
That sounds like 'Holy Smoke' with Kate Winslet and Harvey Keitel.
Been a few years since I posted this, hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about.
I need the name of what was possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. The entire premise of the movie was a man being stuck in a box for the whole film.
All I can remember is this guy trapped in a box on an airport tarmac, with rebel soldiers patrolling it and other cargo. The man in the box kept looking out through a peephole and at one stage a soldier almost notices him. This was the only memorable scene, as well as when a scorpion creeps inside the box with him.
It seemed to be a U.S. TV movie from the 90's, and I keep thinking it is called Stowaway or something similiar, but can't find any information on it anywhere.
Looking to find out the name of the movie, possibly from the late 90s, where the maih character (female) was walking down a hallway or something and apples started falling from the ceiling, and she wigged out...I am trying to help my son find this movie, and the only name the comes up is In Dreams, but that's not right..
