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.

any info on this would be great thanks!
Sounds like Peter's Friends.

I heard that there was a film similar to the King of Kong but based around Pacman, does anyone know the name of it?

Thanks

I'm trying to remember the title of a movie I saw awhile ago on TV.
It was a 70s or 80s movie that involved a group of people camping in the woods, or maybe a camp and they all get killed off one by one by a killer.

That could be about 50 films from that era, can you narrow it down a bit? Any other details at all?

If you can find this movie it will be a miracle.

I remember seeing part of a movie when i was a kid. must have been the guts of 18 years ago now but god knows when the movie was made.

Remember seeing it as a kid and we recorded it as it was on too late. When we went to watch it the next day only 1/4 of the movie had recorded


Themes:
Time Travel i think
Dinosaurs bring in the present (mainly a t-rex if i recall)
Military

The main scene i remember is a small group of people, a guy and two girls i think hiding behind a crate as a dinosaur comes walking through the warehouse that they are in.
Guy is armed with an assault rifle. I cant remember if he started shooting or not.
There is very little else about this movie i remember

I know its very little to go on but ive been on and off looking for this movie for years.

OK, guys, here's another for you...

About 10 years ago or thereabouts, on TV, so who knows how old it was, I saw a movie set in a prison. The warders were in a circular central viewing station of what may have been a 4 or 5 'wing' system with all round visual access into each wing.

There wasn't really much action throughout, mainly dialogue, but you could sense some tension building. At the end, there was a breakout which involved motorbikes, which, I think whose riders had broken in to release their mates. That may or may not have been the case, but the motorbikes were definitely part of the breakout

That's all I remember, really. But I do remember thinking I'd love to see it again. I've tried to google it, using motorbikes prison movie and all sorts of combinations, but alas, nothing. And then this thread comes along! Thanks, Karl, by the way. A great idea for a thread.

I live in hope. And that hope is that after someone here finding it, that it's not a pile of crap that I have wasted all this time thinking about.

Go to it, boys!

Okay a weird one, but i'll see if anyone knows:

Late 80s-early 90s film that I saw ages ago. I only caught the end of it mind, and it was fairly madkap.
It had some guy stealing either the trophy or prize money (possibly both) from a body building competition. What ensued was an army of greased up underpants clad muscle men (Arnie may have been among them, Im not sure) chasing a guy doewn a busy street.

Any takers?
