Thread: Help with a couple of movies that I just can't remember

    First Movie:
    I'd probably have to place this one late 80's early 90's. It was shot in a large old house with probably 4-6 mature couples living in it for a reason i can't recall. Through-out the movie pieces of the house would bacially come to life. The scene i can remember most is a room with very intricut cutouts of a ship, waves, and it was storming out. All of the suddun the waves start moving and starts raining and splashing, then all of the sudden the guy gets tangled by a tenticle where he then has to fight it off. I think then somebody here's his screams and comes it to find him wrestling with i think something stupid like a rope or stuffed animal. That's kind of the premise of the movie. Unexplained things keep happening and i can't remember but i think they start to disapear and become part of the scenary of the paintings and what not.


    Second movie:
    This movies also follows that same style of fantasy. The scene i remember most is this guy is swimming accross the ocean and comes accross a ship. On the head of the ship of course is a woman that looks to be just wood but comes to life, skin is still wood but talks to him. Other things like mermaids and another scene where he's in a cave and this huge burley nasty looking guy has this hot wife. Well this guy works in a coal mine or some sort and can crush with his hands the pressure needed to make diamonds. He gives it to the women to impress her but she just tosses it.


    I know there isn't much to go off of but that's all i can remember of them. I loved these two movies years ago but this was way before digital cable and only one channel of HBO and Showtime because that's the only time I ever got to see them and was too young and stupid to write down the names. I hope you can help.

    Thanks,

    Sounds like the scene in which the Baron and friends
    meet the god Vulcan and his beautiful wife Venus the
    goddess of love,..

    Try,..

    The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
