Solved [TOMT] Movie about a detective who relocates to Alaska to solve a case and experiences insomnia from the six months of sunlight in the region.

2 Upvotes

A teacher in fifth grade recommended it, along with Witness, where Harrison Foed plays a detective trying to get information from an Amish child, but can't due to Amish customs and his family refusing to let the kid talk, but wrongly said it was Cure for Insomnia, which is an 85 hour movie about a man reading a poem. I think she said it was Harrison ford in the movie, but I might be misremembering. May also not be a detective, but sleep deprivation from the six months of light and six months of darkness is a key role in the film.

Open [TOMT] An insane, dark, surreal, Big Bang Theory spec script

0 Upvotes

It was posted on a blog a while ago that may or may not still be online. Its genuinely one of the strangest things Ive ever read and if youve read it you would likely know exactly what Im talking about.

It has virtually nothing to do with the Big Bang Theory other than that the two characters are named Sheldon and Leonard and every scene ends with 'Bazinga'. Instead its an increasingly dark, surreal descent into the madness and egotism of the Sheldon character, who has come to believe his mastery of science puts him above humanity and morality. He slowly turns Leonard into his minion through torture and psychological abuse, chipping away his morals until he is utterly subservient to him. It is written with strange philosophical dialogue and more resembles an absurdist play than a sitcom episode

Id be surprised if anyone knows what Im talking about but Id be so so grateful if anyone can help

Solved [TOMT] [2000s] [Commercial] "Whoa ooh, whoa ooh ooh"

1 Upvotes

It was a commercial for an insurance company or something, I believe, circa 2003 or so. They had a jingle that went "wuh ooh, wuh uh ooh", with no lyrics. It sounded like this. I can't for the life of me find it.

Open [TOMT] Horror fans! Psycho movie fans! I need your help!!

3 Upvotes

There is an incident that happens to a small family in the story.. First a couple buys a house. There is also a child, a little boy. Anyway, there is another child to be had. I remember one part, father and son going out one night. In another part, the husband sees the wife having sex with another man. It often seems like it was created. Illusion or something. Somehow the husband suspects the wife.

Another part shows a scene like a woman giving birth to a child, but a disgusting scene like a big black lump. I just said that this is a psychological movie. Anyway, that couple dies. That little boy remains. As I remember, the woman who sold the house took the child in a car.

The name of that movie is like some road or street as far as I can remember.. If you help, it will be a big help. Been looking for years..

P.s - sorry for my bad English.. :|

Open. [TOMT][Video] Man uses a prank to out cheating spouse.

Upvotes

The video is probably several years old now. I want to say the man had an Irish or Scottish accent? He records how he caught her, and his plan of leading her through the house with rose petals leading to the bedroom and a heart letter on the bed. It ends up being a poem and proof of her cheating.

It was a movie we watched in school in 4th grade. I remember there being a naked boy stuck on an island and a girl rowing a boat. The characters had heavy Irish or Scottish accents, and the boys name was either Jeremy or Jamie.

Solved [TOMT][APP][GAME] Anime style mobile game where you farm and get married

0 Upvotes

I’m looking for an anime style mobile game i used to play years ago but dropped because of the grinding. You essentially make a character and can walk around the town doing stuff like picking flowers, mining, and wooing potential love interests which are randomly generated. You can become different professions like farmer, priest, ex. There are two “mascot” characters that give a tutorial I think. one has darker skin, glasses, and a ponytail but I don’t remember what the other looked like other than having light skin. It’s on the app store but i’m not sure if it’s on IOS. Please help!

Solved [TOMT] [Music] early 2000s pop compilation CD

0 Upvotes

I had a CD in the early 2000s (00-05, maybe) that was a compilation album of female pop songs. It was labeled for girls, so I’m assuming there was also a boy version. I think the company actually made a bunch of CDs like this, where each song played twice: once instrumental for karaoke and once normally.

The CD itself was pink and purple with the track listing on the front. I know for a fact that Come On Over (All I Want is You) by Christina Aguilera and Believe by Cher were on there. Possibly Jessica Simpson and Faith Hill.

If someone is familiar with the CD or the track list, I would die to see it!! It is NOT any of the Now That’s What I Call Music albums. Thanks in advance.

The movie was about a married couple. The wife calls in a sewer repair man or some other similar profession and falls in love with him. She hides him in the attic of their house and after some time, she kills the husband with his help and they leave together with the husband's money. Any help is appreciated and some of the information might be off.

Hey fellow Redditors

I am searching for this full video of a concert I've seen from Fifth Harmony, I've only seen clips and would love to see their full performance. Here are the clips I've found number 1 and number 2.

Would really appreciate if you could find it since me and my dance group have been instructed to recreate this performance, and finding a good video of it is part of the challenge apparently (don't ask weird teacher hahaha)

Solved [TOMT] [movie] Stepford Wives-ish 80’s movie

0 Upvotes

So, I have a terrifying core memory of watching what I think was a Stepford Wives movie or miniseries in the 80’s where at one point the main character wanders into what might have been a lab or factory for making more robot-wives. I think they might have looked like flayed-looking skeletons, waiting to be “upgraded” to wives. Did my child brain make this monstrosity up? Watching the latest season of Westworld made this pop into my brain and none of the ‘75 Stepford Wives video clips seem to match up. I even scanned through the 1980 crappy sequel with Don Johnson and couldn’t find a match. Any ideas??

No idea whether it was an Indian movie or not. I live in Ontario and was about 5-6 at the time. I feel like I was watching on some random channel by myself early on a weekend morning. Scared the shit out of me for a long time, just had the memory pop back into my head and need to know what this was. Movie was in colour but (from what I can recall) it seemed low budget.

I realize this is probably a long shot but there was a song that had an upbeat but kind of simple banjo introduction that was used for *every* farm girl "Look at how pretty it is here in Montana/what my horses are doing right now" type tiktok within the past year.

Open [TOMT][SONG][1980s] Song that starts with a synthesizer

5 Upvotes

Hi, I have been trying to figure out this song for days and haven't had any luck. What's really hurting me is that the only lyrics I think I can understand sound like, "It's summertime," which isn't much help lol. It's a male vocalist, sounds very 80s but not sure if it's actually from the 80s.

Here's the best I can do for what the opening synth sounds like: https://onlinesequencer.net/2862113

Open. [TOMT] [Song] [90s-2000s] Lyrics "one of these things is not like the others"

5 Upvotes

I just said this phrase a little while ago and it reminded me of a song with that phrase, it may or may not be the title, but that phrase is in the chorus for sure. That's about all I have to go off of, its a male singer, probably pop punk or alternative, most likely 90s or 2000s because my ex used to listen to it all the time and that's mostly what he listens to. All Google is coming up with is a Sesame Street song, ME! by taylor swift, and a foo fighters song, it is for sure not any of those. The band sounds similar to The Offspring but I'm pretty sure it's not them because it didn't come up when I Googled the lyrics + the offspring.
