Help! What's The Name of That Film?

With such knowledgeable folk on the site I thought a list topic helping others remember the names of long forgotten films might be of some use.

If you are trying to remember a name of a film you watched 40 years ago or only 40 minutes ago then ask in here and let the Letterboxd community help you.

If somebody does solve your problem can you please confirm they have the correct film so I can add it to the list.

  • Sounds like the Coens' Millers Crossing to me

  • Yes! Cheers for that Phips, I just recently bought a Coen Brothers box-set and thankfully Miller's Crossing is one of the three films featured (along with Fargo and Raising Arizona). I actually had a feeling that was the film.

    And I'm sure you'd figure it out as well Adam so many thanks to both of you.

  • Adam for sure wouldve gotten that

  • Hey any ideas? Seen this film a few years ago never seen it before or since.
    British film made about 1970 I think. Main character is a man with long hair who gets a job working in a busy pub and just smokes a lot. Someone he knows is murdered, think its a doctor or and accountant and I think one of his friends tries to set him up. He goes into hiding at a hotel with his girlfriend from the pub. Think his friend was the owner of the markets and in my head its michael caine but cannot find anything in his filmography like this!

  • That sounds a bit like Hitchcock's second last film - Frenzy - and one of his best in my opinion.

  • I've been racking my brain, and the internet, for a movie from the 70's. It was a B movie comedy, where a biker gang saves the town from evil. Problem is, the gang couldn't afford bikes, so they walked everywhere. At the end, someone buys them all mini-bikes as a reward, then the leader leads the gang down Main St. yelling the phrase "We Got Wheels!... We Got Wheels!". The leader of the gang looked similar to Dr Frank-N-Furter.

  • Okay, so I'm trying to remember this film. I think it was suposed to be scary? And the only bit can remember was like a school in like japan or something, and all the school girls defeat the evil thin by like singing a song and turning it into a frog? but like, the people who made the evil thing are doing it all over the world and filming it all. That kinda made no sense, but help if you can!

  • Cabin in the woods

  • ^ this

  • Ok, I have scoured the web to no avail. Hopefully one of you knowledgeable people can help. I watched a movie a few years ago about juvenile delinquents who were sent to a boot camp. At one part in the movie the juveniles are taken to a small town that is in danger of being flooded. They stack sandbag after sandbag, but cannot stop the flood. Oh, there is also a part in the movie where one of the juveniles hits an officer and says, "I hit hard don't I!". For the life of me I can not remember the name of this movie. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
