View Full Version : Help Me Remember Movie? [Solved]

I have been searching high and low and cannot find this movie. I figure this might be a good place to try because most of you are like me. :)

Most of it took place in a dream, then the people in the dream became aware that they were in a dream and decided to escape before the dreamer woke up. If the dreamer woke up with them still in the dream, they would die.

I remember they did escape and there is a scene in the dreamer's bedroom where they are examining him and trying to figure out how to keep him sleeping.

(Even more vague)
I may recall some sort of "kingdom" in the dream, maybe a person had to convince the rest of the dream-word that it was indeed a dream?

I also vaguely remember them building some really strange contraption to "crawl" out of the dream... They may have escaped his head via the ears, nose, or mouth. I remember a lot of people in the room, the dreamer is still asleep in the bed. He seems really boring to me. Boring room, boring bed.

It could have been animated... I saw this as a child in 1992ish and can only recall little bits. It seems more "lighthearted" than "dark" in nature. Like a "Never-ending Story" vibe.

It is not:
-The Cell
-Little Nemo's Adventures In Slumberland (closest one so far.)
-Ghost In The Shell
-Monkeybone
-Cool World
-Flatliners
-Dreamscape
-Brazil
-The Crying Game

Thank you SPUF!

*********************************
SOLVED! It is called "Rarg"! It is a 30 minute short animation. Thnkas for trying you guys!

No, good guess tho, great movie!

This one was more family friendly if I remember correctly... Not as dark.

This is a tough one. Here's (http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/5569158/10_movies_about_dreams_like_inception.html?cat=40) a list of movies about dreams. Any of these?

Yeah I have already looked at as many top 10's as Google could produce... Cha Cha keeps telling me it is Inception... Even after I specify I watched it before 1995. :)

None of those tho... :(

Do you remember any other significant plot elements or character names. Any occupations that would be distinguishing for characters.

Or Cool World (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104009/).

Haha, I have only seen parts of Monkeybone... I could not watch the whole thing.

Nope, not it. :P

Not Cool world either.

Flatliners? no...

sounds more like Dreamscape: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamscape_%28film%29

Those are the only concrete things I can recall... If I try for more I might be straying from reality (ha it is a dream...)

I may recall some sort of "kingdom" in the dream, maybe a person had to convince the rest of the dream-world that it was indeed a dream?

I also vaguely remember them building some really strange contraption to "crawl" out of the dream... Maybe a giant tower or scaffolding? They may have escaped his head via the ears, nose, or mouth. I remember a lot of people in the room, the dream is still asleep in the bed. He seems really boring to me. Boring room, boring bed.

It doesn't quite fit your description but it's a classic movie about entering dreams called Dreamscape (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087175/) (1984).

Not Brazil, Dreamscape or Flatliners... :( I am almost hoping that I made the whole thing up so I can make an awesome movie ;)

But I am pretty sure it is real and I want to see it again :P

Sounds just like something that'd be in the twilight zone (or one of the post twilight zone shows).

I did watch a lot of TZ, but it really seemed a lot more cheery than TZ's usually are... I believe it had a happy ending.

What are the post TZ's you speak of?
