Film for Vintage Cameras

I'm getting a bit more into photography and I'm thinking about picking up some vintage film cameras (still and possibly movie). There is no shortage of inexpensive cameras available on eBay; however, it isn't clear to me what film formats are still available.

Help! My door knob is stuck and I'm trapped in my room!

Help! I'm stuck in my bedroom. The knob won't turn much either way and won't come unlatched. The only person who has a key to my house is out of town, so I can't even call a locksmith and have him let in. How can I get out of my bedroom? The door knob is the kind with screws only on the exterior. I've tried to slide a credit card in, but that did not yield results. Anyone have any advice to help me get out of my room?

How to cut veggies so they're totally cut?

When trying to cut vegetables with my new, sharp Shun santoku knife, I find that a simple chop is not cutting through all the way through the skin. So for example, I'll have slices of diced bell peppers that are diced 97% of the way through, but still hang together. I think it's a problem in my technique. After I push down all the way, am I supposed to slide the knife backward to complete the cut? Or wiggle the knife a little left and right (though this produces an unpleasant screech as the knife grates against the cutting board)? Or just slice harder? Or get a different cutting board? Thanks for helping an amateur.

Looking for a movie title

There was a movie from about the 80s, I think, about researchers who had invented a helmet of some kind that allowed its wearer to record their experiences and then the helmet could be used by someone else to experience what had been recorded. The lead-up was putting the helmet on a person who was dying. Can anybody tell me what that movie was called? Thanks!

Can you help me find this line dance?

Can anybody help me find a video I saw online a long time ago? I'm pretty sure it was Japanese, but it involved a sort of line dance starting with one person doing a set of moves, then adding another person doing the same set at a different time, so everybody is in line forming this interlocking dance thing. Thanks!
