Please help me remember the title of movie?

Asked by mrmijunte (1159points) March 23rd, 2011

I watched a movie when I was 8 or 9 years old, I believe is an American movie and is about a race. A guy is put in what looks like it might be a European town and the other contestants are trying to kill each other, there are dwarves, and what I think people that looked like moors. The main guy I guess is blonde kinda like Chuck Norris, but I don’t know if it’s him. I really don’t know if I imagined this movie but I hope someone cab help me with this. It is not the Jean Claude van Damme movie that is similar.

What year approximately were you that age? Was this in a theater?

More than likely I watched it on the mighty Betamax or VHS So more than likely is an 80’s movie, I probably watched between 1990–92

Movies from that time period with dwarves are limited.

Here’s on most kids saw I know I did called Time Bandit

I’ll continue to think of what it could be.

I was thinking maybe one of the Mad Max movies. I dunno.

My first thought was Time Bandits too @SpatzieLover. I still have it in VHS. lol

It’s not Time Bandit, thanks for the link to it though.

I think it is a gory movie if that helps.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@bkcunningham I was too…but not sure?

Maybe this one? Mad Max 2 There aren’t dwarves, though.

Ahhh…gory??? Mad Max movies are gory.

@jonsblond Whenever someone says “movie…childhood…dwarves” It’s the first one I think of ;)

Beyond Thunderdome had a dwarf, but it isn’t the plot @mrmijunte described.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@bkcunningham That’s what threw me off. The plot isn’t anything I recall.

mrmijunte's avatar

I checked the imdb and it’s not mad max but you guys have given me a great recommendation,
thanks a lot! I might be wrong about the plot, it is very hazy in my mind.

bkcunningham's avatar

The James Bond movie The Man With the Golden Gun has a dwarf. It is 1974.

bkcunningham's avatar

The earlier Mad Max movies are really good. Sort of bloody like @SpatzieLover said, but I loved those movies.

ugh…..why did I look at this question right before I need to go to bed. Won’t be able to sleep now. Hope you all have it figured out in the morning. Good luck! ;)

It’s not James Bond, good movie though.
@augustlan It might be The Running Man! It’s just not in a Town or Village though, so that is to prove how bad my memory is.
