Well this lady and her husband go on a road trip to this town where they think the author lives and as they are entering the town (at night) they pass this kid on a bike. Further down the road they hit this old man on a bike and when they get out to see if he is ok, the old man is wearing the same cloths as the kid and says "He won't let me get off"

I'm pretty sure that is "In the Mouth of Madness".

>>DING DING DING!!<<

That's it! In the Mouth of Madness.

Now Doozer, make sure you credit GreenCIne member DLeonard with solving this one. ;-)

"In the Mouth of Madness" ties the "Village of the Damned" remake for my least favorite John Carpenter films.

"Village of the Damned" is easily his worst film. "Ghosts of Mars" would maybe be the only contender for me. VotD had that moment where Kirstie Alley sneaks off with a dead baby. That scene approaches Ed Wood territory.

I actually thought "madness" was interesting enough to appreciate, though I don't know how much I enjoyed it... Damned Village or whatever was pretty bad indeed. Ghost of Mars was also bad, and often made no sense, and yet I was kind of entertained by it, though often in more of an MST3K kind of way.

Help! I'm trying to remember the title of a movie I saw that was "similar" to DISTRICT B13 or BANLIEUE 13. Simailar in the way the characters moved meaning they "jumped, slide, tumble through buildings, windows, etc. The actors are young kids who steal and break into peoples homes, usually "high profile people" and give back to the neighborhood.

One of the characters hurts themselves and ends up in the hospital and they decide to pull one more job to help their friend. There is a scene where they break into a rich persons home and have to try and avoid a couple of doberman dogs. Any suggestions??? Thanks!

Hmm, is this a French movie, or American? Or...

Sounds vaguely familiar...

I can't remember, but I think it might be a French or British film? For the life of me I can not remember the title. It was not as gritty as B-13, but had the same kind of energy. Any suggestions??????

It's a Luc Besson movie: Yamakasi - Les samoura´s des temps modernes.

Wow, from way back in 2001. When did parkour become popular?

You're welcome, but Underdog says that the DVD isn't available in the U.S., so Greencine doesn't have it.

Help! I'm looking for the title of a movie that involved a man getting a job at a company and being told that there are "coporate spies" trying to steel info. In the begining of the film we do not know who this guy is, only to find out he IS THE SPY and he had his memory and identy erased so he could be hired by the "other company". We don't find out the particulars untill the end of the movie when it's exposed that he is the master mind behind it all. Ring a bell anyone?

Hey, that one sounds a lot like CYPHER, with Jeremy Northam. And Lucy Liu! Is it?

Not a bad movie at all.

That's it! THANK YOU!!! And GREENCINE has it. I just put it in my queue. I saw this movie when it came out (2002?) and it left a lasting impression on me to this day. I've yet to find a movie with a story this tight. I've seen A LOT OF MOVIES were I know the story is going but this one was a mind bender. GOOD JOB!!!

No problemo! glad to help. Yeah, it's a pretty underrated movie, dunno why it just faded into obscurity. You can help raise it to cult status.

i don't have much information to go on, but who knows, hopefully someone might be able to name this movie:

i'm pretty sure it was a US release (fairly certain).

Late 1980's, possibly early 90's

At least the first half of the movie was a road-movie type plot. Two guys, a car, the road. i believe the destination was something like one of the guys was going to break up with his girlfriend/wife.

i know it's not much to go on, but anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

A real shot in the dark, but could it be "Patty Rocks" from 1988?
