Okay, there's this old movie maybe from the 1990's or earlier and I don't know the name of it. It has this scene where there is a bullet-shooting small toy tank shooting at this young man in some building/house. The man I think puts a blanket over it to stop it. There's also a wild cat ready to jump at him when he enters another room. The man was young and had black hair... Btw it wasn't a cartoon, it had real people.

    Is there anything else you can remember form the film? It sounds vaguely like Small Soldiers, but I don't recall this particular scene. – James Sheridan Jul 26 '14 at 1:18
  • Not really, it's like a really old movie... The only insignificant part I can remember is the man calling some other guy on the phone, looking tired and worried... – Kassie Jul 26 '14 at 1:22
  • Was it a cartoon? Live-action with CG? All CG? Live-action with stop motion/puppets? – Hypnosifl Jul 26 '14 at 2:15
  • It put me in mind of "Cat's Eye" (1985) but I don't remember whether the baddies used a toy tank? – Valorum Jul 26 '14 at 6:27
  • Reminds me of "Battleground" by Stephen King. But only matches partially. It was aired in 2006, the man wasn't young. Another one is the movie Toys (1992) with Robin Williams. – ShadeOfGrey Jul 28 '14 at 6:50

It sounds like you are referring to the movie, "Small Soldiers".

Plot line:

When missile technology is used to enhance toy action figures, the toys soon begin to take their battle programming too seriously.

  • Do you recall if the movie had scenes like those mentioned in the question? – phantom42 Aug 22 '14 at 17:53

I'm pretty certain you're talking about Xtro, an absolutely insane British Scif Fi horror from 1983. I saw it on VHS a few years after it came out. I was only 11, I think. It was one of the first horror movies I ever saw.

  • Which of the recollected scenes from the question match up with scenes from Xtro? – phantom42 Aug 26 '14 at 18:49

  • @phantom42 Which scenes match up? The bit with a bullet-shooting tank chasing a (not-so-)young man with black hair through a house. Oh, and the bit where said man throws a towel on top of it before encountering a puma that jumps up at him. Like I said, batshit insane. I posted a link to this scene above. – Gav Aug 28 '14 at 0:00
