You're looking for the 2004 film based on a series of books called Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The story is exactly as you describe (well, there's three kids but one is a toddler, so we can pretend she doesn't exist): Violet Baudelaire (Emily Browning), her intelligent brother Klaus (Liam Aiken), and their baby sister Sunny (Kara ...

This sort of sounds like The Arrival from 1996. The signals they use to communicate are embedded within radio/tv satellite signals, but I don't remember any secret written signs. The aliens were unique in that their knees bent backwards, and they definitely make a horrible crunching noise when they do so. You can see/hear ...

It's called Bumble Beeing (The Butterfly Effect). A bumblebee hits a windshield and talks to a butterfly that's stuck under the wiper before being wiped to death, and it turns out to be a kidnapper's car when he crashes it and a little girl pops out of the trunk. Here's the full short: And here's the butterfly's commentary ...

The date and the description don't really match, but the scene you mention reminds me a lot of a scene in the The Fifth Element where Zorg presents the new gun that his company developed. He demonstrates the replay function of the gun, a system where the bullets automatically reach the last target. He does so pretty much as you said: by shooting in the ...

Sounds like Source Code (2011). U.S. Army pilot Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal), last aware of being on a mission in Afghanistan, wakes up on a commuter train to Chicago, at 7:40 am. To the world around him – including his traveling partner Christina Warren (Michelle Monaghan) and the bathroom mirror – he appears to be Sean Fentress, a school ...

The first part of your question make me think of They Live. In facts, aliens take the appearance of humans, but can only be seen in their true form wearing some special sunglasses, if I remember correctly. Also, those sunglasses allow one to see that, for example, billboards are signs for the aliens, saying things like you must reproduce or consume. ...

Thanks to Krazer, this is the anime that featured 'Boa Juice' which dissolved people when they drank too much of it. Searching by 'Boa Juice', I found the film's actual title: Flying Phantom Ship (1969). From IMDb: Hayato's peaceful life with his parents and his dog is brought to a dramatic, terrible end when a giant robot, said to be sent from a flying ...

I'm pretty sure you're describing the plot of the German folktale Der Zwerg Nase (Nose the Dwarf), where a boy has to serve a witch for seven years and when he goes back to his family, they can't recognize him because he has a hump and a huge nose. He later runs into a princess that the witch turned into a goose. As for the version you're after, that's a ...

When Ho-jung's daughter Young-ju answers an anonymous phone call on Ji-won's new cell phone, the girl screams and begins to show a disturbing attraction for her father and jealous rejection towards her mother. [...] Ji-won also discovers that Jin-hee's dead body was hidden ...

Probably Exam: The film is set in present-time United Kingdom in an alternate history. Eight candidates dress for what appears to be an employment assessment exam; they enter a room and sit down at individual desks. Each desk contains a question paper with the word "candidate", followed by a number, from one to eight. The Invigilator, a ...

Sounds like The Big Ask from 2013, but the guy isn't dying. Three couples head to the desert to help their friend heal after the death of his mother. They would do anything for him - except for the one thing he wants. That one thing is to sleep with all their girlfriends. I can understand your confusion, though, because the phrase 'dying of cancer' ...

This is the 2014 release of Godzilla. I remember that scene well. Great movie. (And if you're a fan of Once Upon a Time, you'll recognize the small town.)

How old a movie? "Clockwork Orange" comes to mind, with the bowler hat and assault connection. There's a scene where a couple of droogs overpower a couple and sort of drag the woman away from her husband, though they never abduct her from the apartment.

Not B&W, but Frankenstein's monster, here named Viktor, travels with a dwarf played by David Rappaport in The Bride, (1985). I remember a scene in which a tavern owner doesn't want to serve the dwarf, but he has Viktor demonstrate his strength as a show of force, and they are served. However, Viktor drinks too much and passes out, and then they are ...

Zoids include 2 elephants and a mammoth, all sentient robotic vehicles. There are four anime series and at least one unofficial and recent movie, which isn't mentioned in the Wiki. The big elephant, Elephander, is from 2000 so can't be it: Mammoth is part of the 1983 line:

I think it's Quest for Camelot, which was released in 1998. The scene happens a little differently than I remember it, but here is the video of it on YouTube. I recognize the evil knight's face from my memories of this scene. I refused to watch the rest of the movie and made my mom take me home from the theater.

Carly finds that some of the women living ...
