Tell Me the Movie, Get a Free DVD Part The Second

Post Tell Me the Movie, Get a Free DVD Part The Second
Hello all. Again.

Did you like Sin City? Me too! So much so that I replaced my bare-bones copy with the deluxe all-you-can-eat version and now have a pesky bare-bones copy on my hands. I'd like for you to have it.

The DVD is as naked as Jessica Alba wasn't in the movie: A behind-the-scenes promo fluffernutter and that's about it. It boasts a DTS 5.1 Digital Surround Sound (the better to hear Mickey Rourke breathe heavily), a widescreen 1.85:1 transfer enhanced for 16x9 TVs (the better to see Mickey Rourke breathe heavily), a handy dandy French Language track (the better to hear Mickey Rourke's French doppleganger breathe heavily), and Spanish subtitles. Why not French subtitles or an English subtitle? The world will never know.

In exchange for the DVD I ask for the name of the following movie described by three vividly remembered scenes:

*Boy falls off roof of house, quick cut to 'mother' dropping a watermelon on the kitchen floor
*A pizza cutter is ominously rolled up a stairway banister
*Girl dies in fire because shoelaces are inconveniently tied to one another

Submit the movie title and you get the DVD -- it doesn't matter where on this earth you're located.

Lemme know what you find.

Please post all entries below and I'll let you know just as soon as I've verified it.

Hmmmm. I'm not even sure why I did this, but a quick search revealed a made-for-TV flick called "Don't Go To Sleep".

Assuming I'm right, a better prize would be to explain how this lovely movie came to be in your consciousness . . .

A hearty congrats to Young Eli Wallach for identifying the movie in question thus ending a search I went about for several years. Apparently half-heartedly.

I must have Googled incorrectly when my search for "Jessica Alba" "nude" and "tea party" failed to bring me my long-sought answer. I really should have tried "pizza cutter up banister" "watermelon" "fire shoelaces tied together" and "Alba nude tea party". Live and learn, folks, live and learn.

Don't Go To Sleep it is.

I must have spied this movie when I was all of 2 years old when ABC/CBS/NBC/other aired it in 1982. I may have seen it two or three years later in a rerun... hard to say. I do know that it scared the holy living hell out of me at that time and I've never forgotten the images I could have easily plugged into Google in order to sate my curiousity.

Again, congrats to Tuco for mastering Google for me. Congrats, also, to Robert Holloway for his correct (correct submission + obfuscation =) answer.

The DVD is Tuco's for the taking.

Important Update!

Do you want a free copy of Sin City? Tuco has declined the disc and so I offer it to anyone the world round. First person that says they want it gets it mailed to them -- again, no strings attached.

I'd first like to take some time out to congratulate the posters on this thread for taking an innocuous post and tying a fetish porn reference to it. Kudos. That kind of nimble thinking and quick-wittedness are but two of the things that make Reelviews Forum such a special place.

And now for the meat: I'm not going to offer much in the way of soothing words that will convince people that, although this offer may in fact be somewhere between 5 and 10 on the creepiness scale (1 being creepless and 10 being a reference to a man defecating on a video disc), I'm not going to use your address for bizarre, unwholesome means.

If you're interested in the disc then please send me a PM or a quick email to majoraphasia@gmail.com to let me know where in the hell I can send it. I don't care if you give me the address of your mother, uncle, the grave of J. Edgar Hoover... it'll be sent to where you say. And only the DVD. I won't be sending you smallpox or religious literature. Just the DVD.

It's oafolay's if he wants it. A PM or email to majoraphasia@gmail.com, please. If he's been convinced it's a joke and wants no part of it, anyone else.

Hey man, I am definitely still interested and I just sent you my info (in case you didn't already check you g-mail inbox).

Hey man, I just sent you my info. Thanks again for the DVD. I'll be awaiting its arrival with baited breath.

Bait your breath, sir. It'll be in the mail tomorrow. The mods might as well lock this thread up because Sin City is gone, baby, GONE!

This is truly a weird and wonderful place. In what other movie forum would you practically have to beg people to take a free DVD? Kudos to oafolay for being the only interested party.

I would take it but I already own it.

It's one of two things for most of the people that took a look at the thread and decided to go elsewhere. The first is that many many many of the people here already have the DVD in one form or another. The second is the understandable disbelief/distrust they have for such an offer. I don't take insult.
