    Here's one from a friend of mine:
    The main character is in prison and forced to be in some kind of virtual game, and if he gets a certain amount of wins he'll be let out of prison. Some kid is "playing" him through a computer. It's apparently a fairly recent movie. That's all the details I have; any ideas?

    Nope. Something to do with acorns. Or at least we think he said acorns, and he seemed to nod when we said acorns back.

    Too bad, my knowledge of Soviet animation starts with that and ends with Russian Winnie the Pooh, who, incidentally, is pretty bad-ass.

    Well, it had either the possessed corpse or evil ghost of an old woman threatening someone with hellfire in a church, so I feel confident in saying it was at least a thriller/horror.

    I google it every few years. I haven't come up with any leads yet, unfortunately. And I can't remember anyone because I was like, seven and half asleep.

    The name that popped into my head was Demon Knight, but after a quick read-through of the synopsis, I can't find any mention of ghosts, old ladies or hellfire. There is a demon in a church with fire that I vaguely remember, though. Guess that isn't what you're looking for?

Nobody plays any music. Nobody sings. There's a scene where he tries to make music with a glass, and someone breaks the glass. He pushes, and pushes, and at the end of the story the entire village is singing, and a giant cloud monster eats all of them. Then the narrator talks about respecting other peoples' beliefs.
    It could be an episode of one of those shows, it could be a movie. I don't remember anything else about it. Anyone got something?
    This is the plot of an episode of the 2001 anthology series Night Visions.

    The cloud monster shows up around the 41 minute mark.

    It's funny to see familiar actors. Also funny to see that my memories are much scarier than the actual cloud monster. And the narrator is much more overdramatic... I need to take this to a bad movie night.
    My nightmares have been completely shattered, BTW.

    I have been saying "How about some willing suspension of disbelief, you redneck?" when appropriate for years. I vaguely remember this coming from an episode of All That. There were hand puppets involved. Can anyone else's Google fu verify this?

    A kind of fantasy movie, live-action.

    In the end the hero defeats the villain.

    Then the old guy who was advising the hero comes and takes a gemstone? heart? out of the villain and puts it in his own chest. The old man says something like you don't appreciate eternal life and walks away.

    It was at least a decade ago so my memory is faded. It might have involved two comic relief characters becoming invisible and a talking horse.

    Dragonheart, maybe? The heart exchange actually happens at the start, though, and it wasn't the villain's, unless you mean... and the old guy's... I dunno. Does it have a dragon in it?

    There's a sequel to Dragonheart subtitled "A New Beginning"; I've no idea how it compares but if Dragonheart itself doesn't match, check that next.

    Here's one. It's a live-action film about these two guys who I think are chefs and own a restaurant or something. A big part of the film is them trying to get rid of a mouse and slapstick ensuing.

    A few random scenes I can remember is there's a part where there's a cockroach in one of the food items and a guy eats part of it, and there's a part where one character gets his clothes caught in some yarn-making machine. Anyone know what this was?

    Okay, two very very vague memories from me:

    One is about a cartoon (probably anime, but not entirely sure) about a team of people with outfits that had a white/yellow-red-orange colour scheme. Either the entire team or one member had a bird motif thing going. They (or again, maybe just one of them) had a weapon that consisted of a segment of a disc that would fold out to a full disc when it was thrown, it had sharp edges so they it could cut through stuff. I remember one episode being about a member of the team having died and being replaced, and the other members of the team not liking the replacement because "he/she could never replace the dead team member".

    The other one is possibly even more vague, it was about a group of mechs that transformed and combined into a spaceship or a plane I think. It was being powered by moonlight or starlight or something and one episode they were running out of the stuff and couldn't keep using their mechs. The name macross is associated with this show in my head, but none of the Super Dimension Fortress Macross spinoffs (that I could find) fit, so that might just be my memory being weird.

    Ok, so I saw a movie a LONG time ago.

    For a long time I thought it was a sequel to "A Christmas Story" because from what I can remember, the family and character dynamics are the same, just this story takes place in the summer (I think.)

    The father figure takes the older son (the protagonist) fishing and I am fairly sure there is some narration over the action, similar to A Christmas Story. They both catch some fish.

    Later, the younger son feels left out, so the parents suggest the younger son fish in the fishtank at home. Younger son catches one of the fish, named "Gepetto." The parents tell the younger son they will cook Gepetto for the younger son, but instead slyly put the fish back in the tank and tell the older son they will slice off a small portion of the older son's fish for the younger son to eat.

    Can the playground name this movie?

    I'm familiar with the book "The Body Snatchers", which was made into two movies named "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and a third movie called "Body Snatchers", and a fourth named "The Invasion". The book and all of its movie sequels are about alien pod-people.

    What I want to ask the apparently nigh-omniscient Playground crowd is this: has there ever been a work (probably a movie, but possibly an Old-Tyme Radio program or the like) which had the exact title "The Body Snatchers" and was not about alien pod-people? What it was about I don't recall, but I remember someone drawing a very clear distinction for me during my childhood, between the movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", which was about alien pod people, and "The Body Snatchers", no "Invasion", with nary a pod in view.

    A team of people with bird-themed outfits? Sounds like Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, which was mentioned earlier in the thread: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7cK79wKCZY

    I'd like to ask about two shows myself. One is a children's show about two factions of fighting robots, I think? At the end of the show, the robots would play tic-tac-toe using themselves as the O's and X's. Sometimes the evil faction would cheat and replace one of the good faction's symbols instead of making a legal move.

    The second is a live-action movie, I think, about kids in a house where everything has become animate. I remember the (male) incarnation of fire doing an elaborate dance with the (female) incarnation of water, at the end of which they embraced, and he was extinguished.

    There was a movie on tv in the dining hall about a month ago, which none of my friends knew of either.

    It appeared to be a (parody?) slasher movie, and the scenes we saw involved a blonde teenage girl with a stuffed tooth doll going to brush her teeth with an enormous amount of toothpaste, then having her wall punched through by a gloved hand and a drill with a giant drill bit shoved down her throat. It made a huge amount of what looked like foam/whipped cream, for some reason.

    Another scene had a guy on a trampoline practicing for something, and the same arms with the gloves used a plunger detonator to explode dynamite underneath the trampoline, launching him out of the window. Then the scene cut to a Japanese airline with the flight attendants dressed as godzilla, with the trampoline guy flying up to the window and screaming to help him before falling down.

    EDIT: Also, there were Canadian police that had a horse inside their building.

    This one is ancient. I've seen it very young, so it had to be in the mid-80s, and I think even back then it was already an old movie.

    All that I know is that it was about some kids somehow being in the age of the dinosaurs. And the only scene I remember is one tyranusaur fighting some other dinosaur in the sunset while the kids watched in horror and fascination from the distance. I think it was on some kind of plain and the dinosaurs were on the other side of a river.
    I also think it was stop motion and possibly even black and white.

    There was a sequel called It Runs in the Family also known as My Summer Story. I know fishing was involved, but not sure about the goldfish thing.
