    Not really I'm afraid. I'm not very familiar with the horror genre.

    I'm not sure what you mean. I'm fairly sure the book was talking about hydrogen generation and the presence of a 'float bladder' type organ inside the dragon which allowed it to become lighter than air (or at least light enough to soar).

    In the scene from the movie, the older dragon explains that dragons 'eat' gemstones and store them in the craw (a gullet-like section of their digestive tract), to help them grind up and digest the white fire rock (limestone), much like birds eat grit to grind seeds.

    The only bit about bones I can remember is the fact they have to be hollow, much like a bird's, and it was reinforced about their head to help protect it.

    In the last sequence I think you see him jump off of an office building then a cut and then he is a dribbling maniac in the streets, presumably a lot more loops have happened and he is now completely insane and not the "funny" I do stupid stuff insane, but the broken human being insane incapable of doing anything anymore.

    I remember a cartoon from the 90's (might have been anime; but I am pretty sure it was an american or Canadian production) in which the main character was a red-headed swordsman who also wore a trench coat over a green outfit... does anyone has an idea of what I am talking about? Sadly that is the only thing I remember about that cartoon and not knowing it's driving me nuts.

    Various reviews all say the film was shot in black and white, so if the film you remember was black and white, it's probably it (how many black and white films featuring time travel as a central element can there be?).

    With regard to The Omega Factor, is that was it was actually called? 'Omega factor' and 'anime' throws up a lot of Astroboy links, which probably isn't what it was.

    Can you remember the style of the animation(80s, 90s, etc)? It'll give me an idea of what time period to start looking through for dubbed anime (the older it is, the easier to find).
    I would say 80's, though I am not an expert on anime styles, and I am based in Canada. As far as I can remember, yes, that was what they called it in the movie.
    Also, there was a fair bit of nippleless female nudity.

    Sorry, I'm drawing a blank.

    Edit: wait a sec, fair bit of nippleless female nudity? Lead male character first seen ogling female tennis players? Sounds suspiciously like an ecchi anime.

    There wasn't a large amount of *cough* compromising situations in the show, was there?

    The film's about a big blonde guy getting drunk, fighting and molesting several women with his bunkmate and a simultaneous investigation into a recently discovered serial killer.

    You'll never guess who it is.

    I'd go into more detail but that's really all there is to it.

    This sounds like Death of a Soldier.

    Well, I should note that I've only read the book once and that was quite a long time ago, but from what I remember the idea was that the dragons were sort of massive blimp things that were honeycombed with fast-growing bone which was constantly broken down by acids which produced the gases that let them fly. As a side effect, they also needed to regulate the gases in a safe manner, which resulted in fire-breathing. I have no idea what they did in the movie.

    There was this animated series, it was about giant robots piloted by kids with some kind of superpower. Yeah cliche I know. It wasn't hand drawn and it was either cheap as **** or old as **** because RTM was showing it when I was in primary school. That's all I know.

    Some idea of what the year was when you were in primary school might help.

    Was it dubbed in Chinese, Malaysian or English? Depending on when you were in primary school, it could range from Gundam, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Dual, Macross or anything later.

    2002 - 2007. Can't be 2008 because it was a really stressful year. I would remember it then.

    it was dubbed in English surprisingly.

    EDIT: cut 2002 and 2003.

    The only one I remember was when Hades sent the main character to where the Queen was and it turned out to be her shower. He immediately went to yell at Hades for this.
    Ranma 1/2 had more nudity than this.

    Given your age and lack of any other details, I'm going to guess the original run of Evangelion. It'd certainly fall under the old as **** for you and later episodes show their lack of budget, thus the cheap as ****.

    Only catch is the 'not hand drawn' - a look on the list of CGI TV series on Wikipedia doesn't throw up anything of interest, which suggests an imported dubbed anime which first came to the US and later sent to Malaysia.

    The problem is, a lot of anime has been coloured by computer since about 2000, so whether you're confusing that for 'not hand drawn', I don't know.

    Well the fact it has nudity at all indicates it was definitely anime of some sort.
    Aside from 'Omega Boy', are all the character names accurate?

    As far as I remember, yes. It was a dub, so the names could have been changed in the process.
    I think the hero was from Singapore, strangely enough.
    The explanation was, I think, that the more powerful countries were destroyed first, the hero having woke up all muscled up on a slab of concrete, surrounded by destruction.
    Also, the first princess had a lizard like comrade with her at one point. She and him in little fighters took out a ship they called 'The Goliath', but he died in the process.

    OH! I wanna post some descriptions! Okay, I got two:

    1. This one's an online movie. It's not that long. Like 45 minutes or an hour. It's presented in 3 acts and they even tell you the acts. Anyway, it's a musical, a SING-ALONG, and it's about this DOCTOR who's HORRIBLE. Any, this doctor has a BLOG where he posts stuff. The story's about how the doctor has this stalker-ish crush on this one girl, I think she was in this other online show. And the arch-rival of the doctor - I think he's an admiral or captain or something - starts to date the love interest of the doctor. I have no idea what it's called.
    See what I did there?


    2. Okay, this story is about this one character, I think he's the protagonist. The story's mostly about him and he's in most of the scenes and has the most scene time. Like I said, I think he's the protagonist. And he had blonde hair. Or maybe it was red. Though he could have been a brunette. Or he was bald. One of those. Anyway, there's this other character. I think that guy's the antagonist. These two characters don't get along. I think they hate each other, or at least dislike each other. Point is they're not friends the protagonist and antagonist. I also remember there was a conflict. The story definitely had some sort of conflict, then a climax, and a resolution. OH! And an ending. It wasn't one of those never-ending stories. Also, and this part is really important - the release date: it came out in the past. It was definitely made and released in the past. It wasn't one of those future movies. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    When I was a boy, I watched a movie about two kids and a basset hound (and has a song about it), who got teleported into the world of coloring book. Then they met a woman whose clothes are plain white, in coloring book sense. One of the people they met are a family who dances.

    Could do with more information if you can think of any. (Was it a full blown horror film? Any of the actors familiar? etc) as I can't find anything so far.

    Customer she had one day:
    "I'm looking for... I think it's a film. It's around 30 minutes to 3 hours long, I don't know I wasn't really paying attention and I was stoned at the time. Anyway, it's got that guy, he's got that hair thing going on, darn, what is his name again?
    Anyway, he goes to a place, shoots some guys, explosions, etc. I think there was snow?"
    When she tried to pry for more details, the customer was rather indignant and said something along the lines of 'if you don't know movies why are you working at a movie store'
    As the story goes, she got it in two guesses. Apparently this person was looking for Die Hard 2. Had no idea there was a part 1 and 3, with a part 4 (about that time) heading to theaters.

    Then there was the guy who would come in and ask about some cartoon from Poland? Super thick accent that made his english incomprehensible at best, asking about a cartoon from I think the 1970s or 80's, you know, when that thing called The Cold War was going on and practically nothing moved in or out of that area of the world, nevermind culture like cartoons, nevermind that videotape wasn't exactly a thing back then either. And every time he would leave he would walk out swearing.
