Almost certainly this is A.I. Artificial Intelligence. The scene with the robots in cages is below.

'Annihilation' (2018) Some weird scene worth watching where Natalie Portman fights her shadow image (not unlike Link vs Dark Link in the Water Temple). From IMDb: At "Area X", a government facility on the southern coast of the US, Lena, a cellular-biology professor and former soldier, is in quarantine. She undergoes a debriefing about a four-month ...

The Philadelphia Experiment (1984)? From IMDb: In 1943, the United States tests an anti-radar system to make the U.S. Navy ships invisible to the enemy. Dr. James Longstreet uses his experiment in the destroyer escort USS Eldridge that disappears from Philadelphia. The sailors David Herdeg and his best friend Jim Parker are projected to 1984, where they ...

From that brief description, it sounds like the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers

He didn't run away from the Dursley's (not for good, it was just after that... issue, which was soon before the start of the year in Hogwarts), he's living there even in the beginning of the seventh year. This part of the book was just omitted in the movies. The first chapter in the book is The Riddle House, which is Harry's dream about Voldemort in the ...

Avril et le monde truqué (April and the extraordinary world, 2015)? From IMDb: In 1941, the world is radically different from the one we know from history books. Geopolitics has developed strangely: Napoleon V rules France and, for the last 70 years, scholars have been mysteriously disappearing, depriving mankind of their inventions. Without radio, ...

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone The vehicle (with dome and bungee cord tires): The villain (Michael Ironside) who is bionic and attached to his robot arm: A trailer from YouTube queued to the swamp area: The cast is actually quite good with Michael Ironside, Ernie Hudson, & Molly Ringwald. Summary: ...

Most likely The Love War, a 1970 TV movie. From Wikipedia: Two warring planets choose to settle their conflict over which of them will take over the planet Earth, each sending a trio of soldiers to Earth to fight to the death. The combatants, disguised as human beings, can only identify each other by using special visors. Kyle, one of the combatants,...

I have a feeling this is Runaway (1984). The movie starts with a plague of household (and industrial) robots running wild. Tom Selleck's character has to go into a house after a couple flees one such malfunctioning robot and [I think] rescue a child in a crib - I'm just not sure about the child though. The suburban neighborhood, police cordon, etc, are all ...

This image is from Around The World Under The Sea (1966) or rather, it's a set photograph from the Michael Ochs Archive. Various other photos of similar scenes were taken, presumably as 'continuity' shots. Marshall Thompson looks like a giant monster on the ocean floor in a scene from the film 'Around The World Under The Sea', 1966. (Photo by ...

The film is based on a short story ("The Wandering Earth") by Liu Cixin. Liu Cixin, the Chinese science fiction writer who wrote the eponymous, responded to the CCTV (China Central Television) interview and answered some questions, many of whom wanted to know the answers. Many people cried when they saw this movie. Has this been your case? CL: ...

Maybe a long guess, but could it be Invasion of the Body Snatchers from 1956?

This is Curse of the Black Widow (1977). From IMDb: An old legend about a woman transforming herself into a human-sized black widow spider and preying on victims during the full moon comes to life in this thriller. Twin sisters Lee and Laura are plagued by the deaths of people close to them, and a savvy cop and a cocky private investigator begin to ...

In the Avengers Assemble episode "Savages" (Season 1, episode 17) Tony Stark has "Stone armour" which he used to fight dinosaurs. This armour didn't have rocket thrusting boots and was literally a martial arts suit. It came from Captain America challenging Tony to go without his tech for a full day.

In the 616 (comics) universe, his first two armours (the MK I & MK II) had air-pressure boot jets. The MK II was considered to have limited flight, but the MK I was considered to power extended jumps as opposed to flight. All subsequent 'main' armours, had flight capabilities. There are many specialist armour to consider though and it's not always ...

Bearing in mind that your teacher showed it to you, I reckoned it might have been an educational programme, and googled the BBC's "Look and Read" series to try to find a match: "Zzaap and the Word Master" was originally broadcast in 2001. Wikipedia's synopsis reads: "Josie and Peter get transported into an educational computer game at their school. Once ...

I believe this is Return of the Living Dead 3. From the Wikipedia plot outline: The corpse is exposed to 2-4-5 Trioxin gas, which re-animates the corpse into a zombie. The military hopes to use zombies in combat. However, they are impossible to control as their hunger for human brains causes them to constantly attack. To deter the zombies' vicious ...

Liquid Sky Space aliens develop a taste for a chemical that's secreted in human brains only at the moment of orgasm. At one point the lead character actually says "This pussy has teeth." Forum: Great Vagina Dentata Moments In Cinema...

Could this be Quest for a Heart? It's got dwarves (actually short trolls), an elf and plenty of questing. And hearts. When the most mischievous resident of Rolli Village befriends a beautiful elf girl, the hopelessly mismatched pair embarks on a magical adventure to save the Forest of Elves by traveling to the Land of Winter and recovering the mythical ...

I don't know that the information is out there on how much he made on the cameos specifically, since he's more than just the guy in the background. But I do have an answer on what he was paid in general. Stan Lee sued Marvel in 2002 and that lawsuit tells a lot about the contract he had. He entered this contract in 1998 and I'm not sure if he ever ...

That's Avengers: Infinity War. The character is Scarlet Witch:

It's Avengers: Infinity War, specifically this scene near the start of the film where Scarlet Witch and Vision are attacked by Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive.

At the top of the stairs was a coat-rack and, presumably just hidden from view, a shoe-rack with at least one pair of boots. Since she had time to put on the coat before opening the door, there's obviously a very slight time-jump where she would have had ample opportunity to put her feet into some (laceless) mens boots before exiting onto the rooftop.

Could it possibly be Spy Kids 3D: Game Over? It features children being pulled into a video game. It released in 2003 so it's from around the same time. Additionally it's live action with CGI components and the players trapped in the game are aided by the outside world. However this film doesn't, to my recollection, feature a blue sprite, the spelling of '...

Some of this (notably the bad special effects) seems similar to The Giant Spider Invasion -- originally in the top 50 grossing movies of 1975, it ran on network TV three times and eventually got roasted on Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 1997. The exploding, car-sized spider is pretty distinctive.

Is it Tomes and Talismans? We watched this in the library in the late '80s in Maryland. I actually missed the final episode because I got into a fight with Chris Carroll on the way to the library.
