Movie Identification (Post here if you're looking for the name of a movie)

Ok, there's a lot of threads from people looking for the name of a film, it's a nearly daily occurrence, so right now I'm thinking it's best to have just one sticky for that purpose, like the what's that song thread on Music.

Movie Title Needed

This movie I saw when I was about 7 or 8. Very dark, set in a monastry, monks, one simple/disfigured, one disturbing scene with fat naked monk, lying in old bath tub after slitting wrists. For some reason 'War of the Roses' is always at the back of my mind, but is obviously not the Michael Douglas movie. It may have some connection to the actual War of the Roses Civil War.

If anyone has any idea, it would free me from this annoyance. It was also quite a good movie from what I remember.

Help!

I watched a movie about a year ago but I cannot remember the name of it.

The story line, if I recall correctly, is about a lawyer who goes around killing gangsters as they have hurt his family.

One scene is when the lawyer guy nearly dies when his car rolls off the top of a car park but escapes.

The DVD is in black and red cover.

I cannot for the life of me remember the name of it. Any help would be appreciated.

What is this film

Hi, going a bit nuts here trying to remember what this film is, apologies as the details I have are sketchy but basically its a teeny/college film. From 2000 forward. There was a creepy character that had assembled a doll from various items belonging to a girl that lived near them. His mate was trying to date/was dating her. It was a comedy out of the Van Wilder/American Pie school. Its driving me crazy. The film ended with the song that creep boy had written about her, possibly a girls name. He played in I think keyboards in the movie as a part of the story but it was in for the closing credits. I think that he kept trying to scupper his mates chances with her as well. The song got steadily more agressive too.

I think the actor that played him was in a few of those type of films too. Help!!

Anyone know of this movie title at all?! It stars the oldish guy that used to be in the herbal tea ads and seemed a tad gay lol
also starred emma thompson as a very simple loved up woman in it!
and the intro has a well known 80s song in it, cant think of what itis though
its an 80s movie, comedy, and all his friends are invited for dinner in it, and he tells them at the end hes dying.
also theres some black girl in it with an 80s hairdo and black slinky dress.

iv seen this on tv a few times before, always find it funny , but never find out the name!
any info on this would be great thanks!
