What's That Movie?

"What's that movie with that guy that did that thing with that one girl? Oh, and it was set in high school back in the 80s?"

Have you ever asked someone a similar question? Well, I might need a little more information than the above to come up with the answer, but I am pretty good at identifying movies. Lord knows I've seen my share of them, and then some!

Test My Knowledge!

With a library of at least a thousand movies and an incessant urge to perpetually expand my collection to infinite proportions, I am a certified movie geek!

So be my guest: Utilize my useless knowledge and ask away. If I do not know the answer off the top of my head, I will do my best to find the it for you (or someone else might beat me to it by answering in the comments section ).

Just type your question in the comment box at the bottom of this page. Sorry if it takes awhile for me to answer. I am not on the Web 24/7. Your question could be answered in mere minutes, or it may take a few days. Bookmark this page and keeping checking back.

All in Good Fun

I know what you are thinking, "I'm on the Internet where all answers are just a click away, so why in the hell do I need to ask Imadork about a movie?!?!"

You probably don't need to ask me. I just thought this would be fun. Who knows? Maybe you are too lazy to search or don't know how to go about searching with the info you have. I don't care. I just enjoy movies and find pleasure in helping people rid themselves of that frustrating total lack of recall.

So go ahead, ask away!

Tips for Your Movie Search

If you decide to search online for your movie, IMDb.com is a great database to use. Tthere are lots of ways to search on this site: by title, actor, plot, or keywords. The latter two are the best, if you have that pesky unknown movie in your head. It may take some time and patience, but you will find the movie most of the time.

Also, click on your search engine's "Search Tools" or "Advanced Search" button. There you can use filters to narrow down your search.

Some Friendly Requests

  • Be nice!
  • Scroll through other people's questions. If you know the answer, post it. Just make sure you specify the name of the questioner to eliminate confusion.
  • If you post a question but then find the answer on your own later, please come back and tell me. That will save me from wasting time searching for your movie.
  • Finally, (I'm starting to develop a pet peeve about this one), when posting a question, if you know about how old the movie is, please add that bit of information. Telling me that it came out when you were young does not help when I don't know how old you are.

Hello everybody,

So I am also looking of anyone can tell me this movie. don't have a whole lot to tell about it though so sorry for that.

I watched the movie early or mid 2000's, so it was made then or before that.

It is a ''sword and sandels'', and the scene I can remember was in the middle/end of the movie where a (I think roman) general/legion leader who was fighting against rome, switched sides early or mid battle with his legion and again fights against who they first helped.

hard to explain since it was like 10 years ago that I saw it and I was young, and I have wondered what the title was every since.

Thank you in advance in case anyone wants it ^^.

With regards,

Edwin

This is a pre 2000's movie, possibly make around the time as the spaghetti westerns due to the sets and overall look. It may be an Eastern European due to what the lore is of the movie. A family living in what I'm thinking is the 1800's is being plagued by a monster out in the countryside, the father goes out hunting for it, but becomes affected by the monster and comes back to hunt his family.

Hey I'm looking for a movie that I think came out in either the 80's or 90's. Its about a high school boy who gets invited over to the girl of his dreams house because she wants to repay him for something he did for her. As he goes to leave his house to go to hers his parents toss him the keys to the car he ends up falling in his attempt to catch them. He gets up and goes over to the girls house and spend the whole time there making little mistakes in his attempt to impress her later when she say she wants to repay him she invites him into a bedroom only to leave him and in walks a prostitute. He then wakes up at his house where he realises he's dreamed the whole evening and when he goes back the second time everything happens in the same way bUT he's learned from his mistakes and impresses the girl and when the prostitute comes he turns her down to go and comes his love to the girl who finally sees him the way he wanted her too.

Not sure if I'm a hundred percent on that movie but that's the best of my memory oh and theres a part when he first goes over to her house and asks about an item that apparently has something to do with her grandma that he was insensitive about the first time but fixes the second time arround

@Aeyt you're almost describing The Call. Movies around 2013 starring Halle Barry. She worked at a 911 call centre. Girl calls for help and Halle answered. Before she could lock the address in the system the call got disconnected....Halle filled with guilt used what little information she got to recreate the convo before it got cut to pinpoint the location. Remember the cops are now not involved because "no location no help"..she went herself to track the kidnapper/murderor.

What's that movie that came out fairly recently, I believe, it starts off in an art class, an older woman and a teenage-ish aged boy, they're drawing a naked woman who is posing in the middle of the class, the woman and boy start to get along, he starts coming over to the woman's house, she has a boyfriend (i think a cop) and a teenage daughter, blonde hair, can picture her face but can't think of her name, the guy starts to fall for the mother, and the daughter starts to fall for the guy, the guy has sex with the mother, daughter gets mad, runs away to a dangerous guy, they come and rescue her, eventually the mother gets into drugs like she was in the past, her life is falling apart, guy is still hopelessly in love.

I saw this movie when I was pretty young. I think the movie was made in the late 80's early 90's. It's about a woman that follows a kidnapper/murderer along a fairly rural road. There's a stop at a gas station where he kills people inside but takes a picture of a young guy to take back to his kidnapped victim, that's a little girl he has locked up. He also kills a highway patrolman or cop. The woman eventually rescues the little girl, and at the end of the movie she's trying to get custody of her.

Gripping French ? 60s thriller ? filmed in black and white. Basic plot - girl employed by family as nanny. Husband kills wife, frames nanny for murder.

This one is actually from a collection of short movies. I think there were 6 -7 short movies bundled into one. A black woman (whom I thought was Halle Berry at first) gets followed to her house, then gets raped in her living room. It was around Christmas so there were Christmas lights in her home, which she fixates on. After the assault the guy leaves, but the woman starts obsessing over him, tracking him down, stalking him, while keeping Christmas lights up in her home still, in order to get him to recreate that specific scene. At the end the guy was about to lose his mind, came to the house and had sex with her again. I'm not exactly sure about the age of the movie, it's at least 3-4 years old.

Hi. A fairly easy and blockbuster-ish film I would imagine would be no trouble to you film guessers. A post-2000's fairly big budget hollywood (I suspect) 'horror' film where a group of youngish people discover/come across a backwoods mutated, possibly incestuous and probably canniballistic family. One of the first encounters is around fixing a car in the cannibal family's garage from which we find that the cannibals are harder to kill by gunshot than ordinary human beings. The final third/set piece of the film revolves around the 'humans' escaping up into trees in the nearby wood or forrest, being hunted by the mutants. They try to be silent as some have their throat cut and others escape. Definitely post 2000's big budget, possibly low ratings but hard to find due to the abundance of that trope! Do you know the answer??? Please help if you do. Thanks

The movie has an all African-American cast.

It 's been years since I've seen it. All I remember is a grandmother who gets a call that her grandson was left alone in a hotel room. The grandmother takes the child and watches him until the mother comes back. after a while the mother leaves permanently, leaving her son in the care of her mother.

The only other significant scene in the movie that I can remember is the end, where years after the son has grown up, the grandmother turns 90 [I think] and every member of the family whom she's ever helped pins money onto her as their way of paying her back for all that she's done. The son is the last person to pin money on her and thank her.

What's that movie?

It's taken late 90s. A guy with his sister move to a new school. School has a bully that gives him he'll but likes his sister. The guy decided to dress up like a girl and go to school with an alias. The bully went crazy ove "this new girl" and do anything she wants and sort-a-like works for her for a price of a kiss. The girl plants him I kiss and the bully was happy...it's like a funny movie...my late grandma really likes the movie...I need it pls.

My second movie. Taken 70s or 80s, it's a post apocalyptic movie. There is an island that come out of the sea engulfed in a bubble like sphere that opens up when emerged. One scene is a guy riding a bicycle and was cut is half as there was a wire across the road as a trap. The other scene was this haunting sound, always repeats itself and later found out to be a hanged body swaying from side to side caught by a light breeze causing the sound...

Third movie takes place in the Pacific Island. Movie taken around 60s to 80s. A white guy washed up in an uninhabited pacific island. He lived there for a while and little by little he uncovers signs of him an activity by the natives. The natives do not live in the island but do visits occasionally....he didn't want them in his new home and at the same time he discovers a huge tiki head statute...he starts to set a trap to scare the natives from the island for good. At the time of the trap, he used a microphone for a booming voice and gasoline from a fiery breath from the statute. That caused the natives to think the gods were angered of them setting foot on the island and they left for good....and no, it's not Robinson Crusoe or The Silent One.

@Hugo Robb ~ It sounds as if someone copied "I Don't Buy Kisses Anymore" (1992). I'll see if IMDb lists connections.

Hi I'm trying to find a movie that was on netflix but cant seem to find anymore. It is a romance movie about a girl who moved to new York I think, she lost her mom a few years before that and now her father is ill so she goes back home to her childhood house and while she is there she meets an old friend who is a doctor or paramedic I don't know. At the end I'm pretty sure she hurries her mother and father together and her and the guy fall in love.

If you could find the movie that would be awesome, thanks.

@Abz ~ I've seen it, so it isn't tough to identify. My brain is packed with what I've watched!

My One and Only (2009) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_One_and_Only_(fil...

From Wikipedia: The film is loosely based on a story about George Hamilton's early life on the road with his mother and brother, featuring anecdotes that Hamilton had told to producer Robert Kosberg and Merv Griffin. Kosberg pitched the idea of this true story to screenwriter Charlie Peters, then Merv Griffin shepherded the project from screenplay to production, until his death in 2007.

The movie is about a mom who left her husband and took with her two teenage boys. Then she went through rough times, married a man who was abusive to one of her kids. Also one of the boys aspired to be an actor. That's all my sister can remember

@John ~ Virgin Territory (2007) starring Hayden Christensen

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virgin_Territory

From Wikipedia: The film is set in Tuscany during the Black Death. As in "The Decameron" by Giovanni Boccaccio, 10 young Florentines take refuge from the plague. Instead of telling stories, they have lusty adventures, bawdy exchanges, romance and swordplay. There are randy nuns, Saracen pirates, and a sexy cow.

Any remakes or similar films to The Wraith (charlie Sheen?) i know there was one which involved a female version but with a motor bike (where it was the woman who came back from the dead for revenge etc? but cant find anywhere ... unless just hearsay and rumors? lol)

Now i am desperate, but this will be my final ask about it lol

2 movies (early 00s) roughly when alone in the dark came out.

Both ghost stories:

1 - girl movies into/rents/nannies for this house, there are a few spooky going ons (like piano playing downstairs, no one in house etc). Turns out SHE is the ghost and is buried in the garden next to a pond/well; she realised she just wanted to say goodbye to her mother and brother/sister

2 - Girl owns a motel in some countryside state (New England E.G) or works there, the motel is kindof dark (gloomy) and only has one guest, a man... only other things i remember is phone keeps ringing, its her mum, but there is static so can never get through lol... Fake mem?... Turns out the guest was the one who raped and left her for dead in the woods nearby... end of film = her *spirit* getting back in her body and taking revenge

I know these are not fake memories because i watched them with my uncle years ago... sorry for the long post (try microsoft edge, i can always read all the posts on that)

A film set in, I guess the Middle Ages where they use a lot of swords. This might not be 100% accurate but I saw the film a year or two ago and I want to re-watch it, the film is more than two years old though. It's about a young man who falls for a girl and travels to meet her and there is a bad guy who I think want to marry the girl himself so the young man fights him and in the end wins. It's quite a funny film and there is a scene with the young man in a bath and two topless nuns are with him. Any help would be appreciated thanks guys!

Movie of young teenager who lost her parents and due to the trauma she pretends to be deaf only to find out that her male guardian (godfather) is molesting his own daughter


Sorsaka 46 hours ago

There was this animated movie, probably japanese. There was this girl that would fall asleep and then end up in another dimension or in another world you could say. There there was this I think white floating creature that showed her around everywhere. The other dimension/world is in a sort of forest. The creatures and the characters are drawn sort of like the ones from totoro. It is hard to explain and I saw this animated movie in 1999/2000.

But she was at first afraid of the world she got into, but then all she got caught up into it.

Does anyone know which movie I am talking about?


Kayla 2 days ago

Movie where there was 2 long time friends. A boy and a girl. At the end of the movie, the boy kills the girl. The girl was deaf so she didn't know anything was happening. Throughout the whole movie, she had hearing aids and the boy was violent and tried killing is parents. The girl was explaining what was happening.

Hi everyone,

Let's challenge you on this one Imadork !

It's a movie settled in an american college/university. The plot focus on the relationship between two students, male and female, which started, if i recall well, when the girl starts to help this kinda loner boy to be himself, or/and more popular.

Nothing crazy here. The thing is, by the end of the movie, we finally understand it wasn't what we thought it was.

This relationship she developped with the guy, was just part of an experiment, as she was working on her final exam or something. I remember a scene where the guy walk around displays showing items of his life and relationship with her throughout the movie...

I found it back once, but this time can't put my hand on it!

I would say it's from the late 90's or early 2K. What do you think?

Thanks for your help anyway.

I was at the gym and caught the last 10 minutes of a movie. The man was packed to leave and wanted to take a painting that the woman had bought him, but she said no. Later she accidentally stuck here foot through the painting. And hit the man with the painting and he pretended to be passed out.

While the man is packing, the husbands mistress comes to talk to the wife and reveals that she has a black eye and has been married.

Hey everyone, hopefully someone can help me out

The movie was a newer, independent film. I had to have seen it a few years ago. It was about a kid (young, male Caucasian) who was homeless trying to get somewhere (presumably back to his family) and took place in the southern alligator country. Anyway the only parts of the movie I can really remember are a few scenes at the end: there's a scene where the main character gets high and screws around in a grocery store; a scene where the main character, very desperate to go 'home' and all out of money, makes a sexual advance towards a bus station ticket clerk in order to get a bus ticket. The clerk refuses him angrily; and lastly, a scene where the main character, now very desperate, finds a gun and uses it to take hostage an airplane pilot at some small airport. He forces the pilot to take him up in the air on one of the smaller planes. The very final shot is if the main character, looking out the plane window, to something below him off-screen with a worried look. Hope somebody knows what I'm talking about. Thanks guys

@Bella That should be "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones". Since the movie series was not continued it came out as a tv show this year called "Shadowhunters".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mortal_Instrumen...

@Izac Sounds like "Murder by Numbers".

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0264935/?ref_=nm_flmg_...

From IMDb: Two gifted high school students execute a "perfect" murder - then become engaged in an intellectual contest with a seasoned homicide detective.

Women is about to be married to this guy. He's bought this new car. She asks him what he can do for her? He says, "anything" or something of that sort and she asks him to throw his car down the hill. He goes on to do so. She eventually leaves him for the other dude in the film.

This other guy is your typical alpha male. Extremely charismatic. He projects extreme dominance and she finds it extremely attractive. He is also a painter and she's fascinated on seeing his painting during their first meeting.

It's a pretty old movie. Could be 50s or 60s. Not sure. Anyone got a clue? Thanks!!

This is going to be a bad description of the movie I'm looking for cause I watched it a long time ago but it is about these 2 brothers or friends who go on a murder spree and I think they used plastic bags to choke their victims and wore gloves. At the end they end up having a stand off with another lady cop. One of the brothers worked at a pet shop and choked puppies I think. Thanks for reading :) sorry it's a bad description

Girl is drawing all these weird symbols in her sleep and just normally but she doesn't know what it means, so she goes to her best friend for help and he doesn't understand either..

then she sees someone and he explains that she is special and can see things that others can't, like werewolves and magic. they do stuff with shadows I think

Her mother is apart of it too but she dies and the girl falls in love with the mysterious boy.

it's only a couple years old

@Emily That sounds a lot like one of the final scenes of Deep Impact (1998) to me.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_Impact_(film)

Two of the main characters, the teenagers Leo and Sarah, are send to high ground to save themselves and Sarah's baby brother from a tsunami wave caused by the impact of a comet.

@Frankie ~ The Outer Limits (TV anthology series~revival of Sixties series), "Stream of Consciousness" (1997 episode)

From Wikipedia: Due to a brain injury, Ryan Unger (George Newbern) cannot enjoy the benefits of a neural implant that allows other people to tap into The Stream—a direct connection into all human knowledge. He tries unsuccessfully to keep up with everyone else by using a long-forgotten skill: reading books. However, The Stream has been erroneously programmed to crave information instead of knowledge. Soon, it begins to turn the human race into its slaves to attempt to locate and process every single bit of information, a process that will lead to the human race's extinction as people stop doing everything to obtain the desired information. Ryan's injury keeps him from falling under the sway of The Stream, leaving him the only person who can stop it.

This movie was about a maid or housekeeper who would come and take care of elderly couples then she kills them. Each time after she kills one couple, she goes to another job and do the same thing. The end of the movie, one of the couples she killed had a son who suspected her of killing his parents, but couldn't prove it. The movie ends with her taking care of an elderly couple in the bed and she looks out the window and sees the son who accused her of killing his parents. This movie went on to have at least 2 sequels to it.
