This was YEARS ago like back in the 90's when I saw it(movie might've been from the 80's most likely), but I remember this old movie about a cop/US Marshal/lawman what have you where he has a Twilight Zone moment where he gets sent back in time to the old west and fights some supernatural outlaws. Some things I remember were that the Outlaws can only be killed by the same gun or bullet that killed them the first time over, the main bad guy was this masked outlaw guy who I think gets killed by taking a sheriff star to the head like it was a shuriken, and that the movie cover had a skeleton dressed in cowboy attire.

I thought I might have somehow imagined a grittier version of Delicatessen but I don't believe that's the case, the film I'm talking about was pretty bleak and I think the little girl dies in the end or maybe one of the other women in brothel or whatever it was does. I'm not sure.

It was more recent and I also think it was foreign? I don't think you saw much of the outside world in the film but whatever you did see looked war torn/post apocalyptic, and the building she was in was nasty and filthy.

I saw a movie when I was young that ended with two characters arguing about how to end the movie. One keeps bringing up popular endings to other movies they could ape, only to be shot down by the second character who says stuff like "Casablanca did it," or whatever movie. And in the end, one of them suggests, "what if we just duck out of the frame and crawl away?" And they do. And the movie ends.

Anybody know it?

Wayne's World comes to mind immediately, but I've got a feeling some other movie aped it more the way you say, too.

Also a late episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus where one character shops for endings and tries different ones, finishing on "perhaps just cut to black?"

I don't think it's Wayne's World, though they did similar gags where they tried out different endings.

Not the answer, but anyone who hasn't seen Adaptation should definitely do so. It's like that movie smashes the fourth wall almost inconspicuously, builds a fifth wall, and takes that one down, too.

Looking for a film about a dinner party, probably black and white, proobably British. There might've been two ghosts observing things, but I might also be mixing two films up... It might've been filmed in real time, but I honestly think that's a third film I'm mixing in. Either way I can't find any of them. It wasn't a horror film.

It was sad because they were all getting older and it was most likely the last party where they'd all be together. I found it very boring, but my mum made me watch it, I kinda wanna go back to it now I'm older, but she's dead so I can't ask her what the film was.

It wasn't The Shooting Party, but she made me watch that too.

The "two ghosts" thing makes me think of Max Ophüls's The Tender Enemy (1936), but that's kind of an obscure movie and in French

From my boyfriend: A late night movie, I believe it was British, or possibly just British actors in this particular scene. A man and a woman (I think the woman was Black) are in a bathtub together, having a conversation. I don’t remember what it was about, but at the end he’s like, shifting his legs around, and she smiles and goes “mmm, leave it THERE”. This would have been late 80s or early 90s.

This has been popping in my head for years now, so why not give it a try.

Horror movie, I think I saw it roughly 25-30 years ago. I recall a test facility blowing up / or something escaping. A scene with a woman looking through a window and I think the monster's head is looking between potted plants.
Also I somehow recall a washing machine.

Apologies in advance that this is a fragment of a memory of a film, but something where someone is being observed/tracked by a chain smoker and the protagonist sees a shitload of cigarette stubs in one spot (hallway? street corner?) to indicate they've been there all night?

edit: I want to say that this was in a neo-noirish dark comedy but I really can't remember anything about the plot or setting. I'm dreading it being something I was huge on and have somehow forgotten.

This sounds like something I seen in a police procedural, but I couldn't say which. If there was any series you regularly watched might be among the episodes.
