I'm working on creating my own film production company, but the problem is that interferes too much with another passion: ballroom dancing. (I just love a good tango!) I'm a writer, but also have done programming and other types of work.

comment Identify this sci-fi movie in which a scientist and his family move into a new house
Do you remember anything about the movie other than what was in it? What country was it from? Was it a feature film, or just made for TV? Could it have been just a TV episode?

comment Woman in white wakes up in an empty space ship
Any meta-information can be a HUGE help. As pointed out already, country of origina, for example. Also, was it only this one woman for the whole series? Was it on network or syndicated? All this kind of information helps.

comment 1990s sci-fi tv show with invading humanoids and dull crosshatched eyes
Can you include information like what country this was in, whether it was syndicated or on a major network, or anything else along that line?

comment Strange and haunting Science Fiction Film
What makes you so sure it's not Silent Running? While the ending is different, that scene you describe might be from earlier in the movie. Also, are you sure it was a movie and not on a TV show?

@DavRob60: Is that a partial answer or a guess?

@GorchestopherH: I think that'd count. I'm trying to find out if he does this whenever he can, or if it's only SW.

comment What Else (Other than Star Wars) Has Lucas Retconned?
@DVK: No. It's "Han shot." Not first, since Greedo never shot at all, so Han didn't shoot first. He shot and that was the end of it.

Cross posting is discouraged. You've posted this exact same question here and on SciFi and Fantasy. It really should be posted to only one site, not both.

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
As a competitive ballroom dancer, I get a lot of big band music when I'm on the dance floor. Just love it. I'll have to check that out! Thanks!

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
I haven't seen much of Jerry Lewis, but as a competitive ballroom dancer, I was interested in his fight scene (that was also comic) since it was almost like a dance, but there is no real plot and the whole spy thing didn't even start until about 10 minutes or so before the line in question. I guess a Jerry Lewis fan might want to see it, but otherwise, it's plotless, nothing memorable in the writing and pointless. I agree there's a chance the use of the line in Sad Sack may be a parody -- which makes me wonder where it was originally used. But searching produced no other references.

By the way, any chance it was used elsewhere? Maybe Sad Sack used it as a reference?

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
I wish you had posted that about 50 minutes earlier -- I just got through watching Sad Sack. (It's quite lacking in many ways!) I had thought it was on normal Netflix, but saw it was on streaming. I had intended to watch or listen while packing up for an event tomorrow, but was tired and sat through it all. (It wasn't worth it!) On Netflix, that line is about 1:20 (as in 1 hour, 20 minutes) in, and it's repeated within 2 minutes and repeated again at about 1:34 or so by another character. So that's it - thanks for your help! (Just wish it was early enough so I didn't watch that movie!)

@GlennFerrell: So you're sure it's not The Sad Sack? I can verify it is NOT Arsenic and Old Lace. I just watched that last night.

@Advicer: I really wish I knew more about it. I just finished watching Arsenic and the Old Lace because a friend said it was in there. While I enjoyed the movie, as AidanO pointed out, I can't watch all 112 movies he made! (A friend also tells me it was a movie he was in with James Cagney -- everyone has a different suggestion!)

@Nobby: Definitely not The Maltese Falcon! I just watched that a few months ago.

comment Seeking a circa 50s/60s science fiction movie with a Portal
For those that say story-id questions aren't helpful to others, I've wondered about it since the 1980s, when I saw bits of this at a Star Trek convention.

comment Does George Lucas have a plan for how The Clone Wars series will continue into the movies?
Lucas stated, years before The Clone Wars hit TV that he had two TV shows based in the Star Wars universe that he was interested in producing and back then he stated about how long each could run. I forgot the figures, but the live action one (which they've been planning) could, according to Lucas, run as long as 10 years.

comment Which film was the first to show us the face of God?
@iandotkelly: I'm not sure of Old Grey Hare shows the face, I don't think so. The main reason I included it was because of the humor of thinking of Mel Blanc, so famous from Looney Tunes and the Jack Benny Show, doing God's voice.

comment When was the Star Wars Chasm Fail edited out?
@TylerShads: It's an opinion thing, it is not significant to everyone, but to some it's a huge deal because of the memory games. If it helps, consider this: people finding this question are likely those searching for it, so, they'll be glad they found it. (And thanks!)

comment When was the Star Wars Chasm Fail edited out?
@AndreiFreeman: Also see the two comments I added above. Having a beloved childhood movie edited so it plays games with your memory is something that can't be understood unless it's happened to you and a movie you remember from 20-30 years ago is not what you know you saw.
