What's That Movie?

Updated on April 13, 2018

With a library of at least a thousand movies, I am a certified movie geek!

What Was That Movie Called?

"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, instead of languishing in agony, there are many different steps you can take to help you figure out what that movie is. I have outlined a few here in this article.

I have found that these steps are the most helpful:

  1. Think about the plot of the movie: What happens and what do the characters do? Is there anything important that sticks out in your mind? Something that separates the movie from others and makes it unique.
  2. Think about the setting: What period was the movie in? What cultural allusions did the film make? Did the movie reference any historical moment or any other film of note?
  3. Think about the music: Was any popular song used in the movie? It's very straightforward to look up things like that online, so even if it's only one song, you still have something to search with.
  4. Think about the actors: Who was in the movie? Anyone whose name you can remember? Perhaps you can only remember a character's name, that's still a big clue that can aid in your search.

How to Search Google When You Don't Know the Name of the Movie?

Sometimes all you need to find the movie is a well-formulated search query on Google. Try to type in keywords and concepts unique to the movie. The great thing about the internet now is that there are so many writers out there compiling movie lists that it makes it much easier to find obscure movies that you have forgotten the title of.

I recently watched the movie Waking Life, a film about lucid dreaming, so I tried searching for it on Google without entering the title, and I was pleased with how quickly I was able to find it.

You'll notice that the movie I was searching for, Waking Life, came up near the top of the first search page.

What Was the Name of That Movie?

If you have not had any luck using Google, there are other ways to search the internet to find what you are looking for.

There is a new site called What Is My Movie? which uses an AI algorithm to give you similar movies just by typing in a search phrase. The AI is the most accurate when searching for a title as it will tend to bring up movies with the search terms in their titles. Keep that in mind when using the search program as you can get some wonky results if you do not search using the correct keywords. It will take some trial and error to figure out the right search terms, but after that, the AI works quite well.

Tips for Your Movie Search

If you decide to search other places online for your movie, IMDb.com is a great database to use. There 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 the search engine's "Search Tools" or "Advanced Search" button. There you can use filters to narrow down your search. The site is also great for finding technical information on the entire crew of any given movie. So even remembering the name of a minor actor that does not have a Wikipedia page can help you find the movie on IMDb.

What Does IMDb Mean?

It an acronym for Internet Movie Database!

Famous Songs Used in Movies

If you can figure out a certain song from the film, Wikipedia or allmusic.com can be useful sources for finding out what movies have used the piece. For most famous songs Wikipedia contains a wealth of information about when the song was used in other media. AllMusic is good for finding technical information such as the soundtrack that a certain song has appeared on, which can help you immensely. Even a song that may not be popular enough to have a Wikipedia page will most likely have a page on AllMusic listing the albums it has appeared on.

A look at a typical Wikipedia page for a song, in this case "Neat Neat Neat" by The Damned. You can see that this song was featured in the movie Baby Driver.

        I’m looking for a movie I saw about a year ago maybe on Netflix. It’s about a group of people (I think applying for a job?? I could be wrong) they are left stranded in the Forrest and they have to make it to the end alive to get the job. Along the way there’s boob traps and people hung up on trees and they turn on each other etc. one guy makes it to the end and gets picked up by helicopter.

        Hey, I have been looking for this movie since the first, only and last time i saw this movie when I was younger. Its been on my mind ever since, likely close to 11+ years..And I truly hope this site and You can come to my rescue, because im in the lost. Thank You

        - Out of what i can remember from the movie:

        Im looking for 'a movie/ movie musical', Possibly from timeperiod 1950-1980+ (could be earlier, or older time) Its a colored

        movie, old quality, old fashioned actors, and older toned songs being sang.

        -Placement/plot:

        Is set in the forest, where 'actual people' are dressed up as common forest animals, with human clothes looking/made to simbolise the animal the actors play.

        Their animal makeup consist of the animals hair, fur, makeup on their face(no full face masks-only : example: a actor playing rabbit in this got cheeks,nose, teeth like rabbit.

        Aditional to this^, is the actors having their animals tails, feet, ears ect. But, The deer mother and the wolf specially, have their own face features, and only been painted in the face as their animals. The plot is Placed in the forest, where the main Characters live, the deer mother, and wolf. Together with all the other forest animals, like, rabbits, foxes, bear, squerrels family ect. They live in woodHouses build in the midle

        of the forest, and their lake got a bridge over it.

        -Scenes:

        1.All the forest animals gather up in the big house in the middle of their little ?thown?/comunity, where they discuss/or talk about plans for a celebration, or possibly express/discusses their conserns about the wolf that ''give them all fear''.

        2.The deer mother live alone with her four-five children, and the wolf wishes to lure her kids out of their house a late evening when the deer mother is out of the house getting food/a basket ?of apples?.

        The wolf stands outside the deers house, while he sing to the deer children, trying to lure them out while they run inside the house hiding, while some of them are trying to look out from the windows. The wolf almost succseed luring a kid out of the house, but the deer child then realises its not their deer mother and manages to lock the wolf outside. Then the wolf goes away, and when the mother deer comes home, its dark/night and the weather is bad, and the children are still scared. They believe its the wolf again, and not their mother so the deer mother stands outside singing in dispare, but trying to convince the children its her. She succseed after her good words in the song, and all the kids lets her in and hugs her thight.

        3.Towards the end of the movie/movie musical, the deer mother and the wolf gets together singing together, and ice-skating over the frozen lake by the small bridge that goes over it. The wolf have through the whole

        movie wanted to get with the deer mother, and his crafty nature is pressent under the way he sing with the deer mother, together with how he try to seduce her. But the deer mother know his play, and ?towards the end of their dance, she stomps him by the foot and gets out from his grip? and the wolf fall though the ice, right by the bridge, and the deer mother stands by/on top of the bridge saying something together with all the other animals in the forest living there who had gathered around the lake they danced on. After the wolf have fallen though the ice, and get soked with ice cold water ?he manages to get out himself/ his fellow wolf-followers/ some of the forest animals helps him up?

        (the sentences(details) that have been described, and marked between two ??, is details I am not entirely

        sure on, and can not remember clearly)

        Enonumus, thank you for your time. I searched different ways on that website also. I can not recall actors, too young at the time. I can not remember if I had seen it here at home or when visiting my Grandma. Here at home (rural) we only had CBS and PBS, but at my Grandmothers in Chicago - she had all channels at the time. It could have been on Svengoolie WFLD Chicago or late night CBS at home. I can only remember the guy was paralyzed scarred and he couldn't get any ones attention while he was conscious of everything around him even his burial.

        Alaric, I couldn't find anything else closer on that search engine website using the information you provided, but you might recognize an actor, tittle, or something else in the search results that others who haven't seen it would be clueless about. I'd suggest using that site and providing the best but narrowest details you can. The link is higher up on this page. Are you sure it was a movie, and not an episode of Night Gallery or some other similar show? I don't know if that website provides hits for television episodes.

        Alaric Might be The Curse of the Living Corpse (1964). If not, and if nobody else responds, try visiting the link higher up on this page to the A.I. driven website and searching for "buried alive", and ignore anything made after the mid 70s obviously. That will narrow the results dramatically.

        In the 70's as a kid, I remember a movie about a guy walking down a hallway and something fell on him or jumped out frightening him into a coma (pseudocoma). His heartbeat was undetectable and he was pronounced dead. He was later buried alive then rose up out of his casket and killed people. I can not remember if it was in B/W or color. I also remember his dialog trying to get people's attention, but he had complete paralysis and you could hear the shovels throwing dirt on his casket. Some how he got out of the casket and killed people. Does anyone remember this movie??

        Thanks a million!! Seriously, the scenes with Michael Caine were wracking my brain! I had John Hurt and Ian McKellen rolling around in my head, and you’re absolutely right, it was Michael Caine. I totally had the story line mixed up with another film as well and would have never remembered Clive Owen.

        I’m needing help recalling this movie, I’m going to say it probably came out in the 90’s, could have been early 2000’s.

        The premise as I recall was a lead male trying to save the world, or take down some bad guys. He has a female side kick he met along the way. He takes her with him to the home of an older gentleman who was an old friend and was able to help in someway possibly with information and a place to rest and regroup for a bit. The elderly gentleman had a bohemian little home out in a rural/woodsy area that he shared with his wife who was sitting in a chair staring out the window, possibly Alzheimer’s...he was playing old 70’s rock music for her on vinyl. The Elderly man and wife met their demise, if I remember correctly by bad guys maybe? Who show up after lead male and female leave to finish whatever it was they were trying to do. The lead was possibly an action film type who had done lots of similar roles....Bruce Willis comes to mind, or someone very similar.

        Thanks!!!

        This movie was probably made around 2000-2005. I believe it was set in a desert or extremely remote barren location, perhaps somewhere in Europe or the Middle East.. The entire movie take place in and around this huge (round?) building, made entirely of cement I think, designed by some fictional famous architect. The building itself was effectively a work of art, but also a residential building. For some reason is going to be demolished, but there's still at least one family living in there and perhaps a caretaker. Anyway, some bizarre stuff happens, and I think one or more people ends up being trapped/held captive in the building, unbeknownst to the people doing the demolition.

        I'm looking for a horror movie or thriller and I cannot remember which one it was. I only remember that somewhere near the end, a woman gets unwillingly hung from a tree. In my mind, she's wearing a raincoat, but I could be wrong. That part of the movie took place near an open field with one tree and I think the movie was (partly?) set in the woods, where they were running from something? Someone? Does this sound remotely familiar to anyone? I've been searching for days and I cannot find anything about it.

        Hello all, i can't find this anywhere and it's bugging me. I saw a weird movie on tv when i was a child and i can't find any information on it. I'm wondering if you can help but my details are a bit sparse

        Here's what i remember

        - There is a Flower that grants immortality

        - The main character is a lady trying to keep it away from a bad guy

        - She runs into a biker (i think) she doesn't get along with but needs help

        - He teaches her to 'fight' by showing her the 'ol one-two' which is basically him kneeing someone in the groin and uppercutting them, she uses it later in the movie

        - The bad guy catches up to them and takes the flower but it turns out the main characters sister switched the flower with some flour

        That's all i got.

        None of these are really 70s/80s, but comedy duos that kind of match your description:

        Laurel & Hardy

        Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

        Hope & Crosby

        Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly

        Chris Farley & David Spade

        In the 70s/80s, but don't really match your description:

        Lemmon & Mathau

        Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor

        Eddie Murphy & Nick Nolte

        Mel Gibson & Danny Glover

        There are also the other 2 cops (Judge Reinhold & John Ashton) that Eddie Murphy antagonized in the Beverly Hills Cop movies.

        I do not know what time this movie came out but I was first a child when I saw it so im presuming it came out in the 2000's. It starts out with a group of friends in a cabin and then during the night they are kidnapped, but one girl almost escapes and hides under the porch, she looks up and can see one of the kidnappers foots walking and looking for her. I cannot remember if she ended up being kidnapped as well but the next thing I remember is the group waking up in a horse stable, chained and held captive. A man, who owns the house walks in and says something to them all and one of the boys is angry and he lashes out. The guy gets angry and then punishes him by whipping him with something used to whip a horse. That is all I remember so please help me out!!!

        This was a TV show back in the 80s or around there. I don't recall if it was Alfred Hitchcock Presents or Tales from the Crypt, but I'm trying to find out more info. Synopsis is a woman is raped and at the end of the episode (they're in the car in a parking garage) she tells her bf/husband that she sees the rapist so he runs over & kills him. When he returns he is shocked to see that now every man that walks by she screams "That's him!" The man is now realizing that not only is she not mentally stable but that he had just probably killed an innocent person. What was the name of this show and the episode?

        Hoping you can help me with this one i’ve been looking for ages! I feel like this movie was from the 90’s that’s when I think I would have seen it.

        Not sure of the setting. The main character is a man who lives alone, possibly estranged from his wife. Or maybe she’s away.

        A woman moves in across the street. He watches her from his house and eventually meets her. I feel like there was a scene with him in her kitchen, asking her questions while she cuts lemons. (Making lemonade?) They have a one-night stand (or affair). Later, he sees her murdered body in her bed. (Through his window? In a video?) It appears he may have been set up for her murder.

        Everything else is fairly sketchy. I seem to remember a scene with a gravel pit? Where the bad guy is trying to kill the main character by burying him alive by dumping a load of dirt/gravel on him?

        I think it ended with the main character in a coma. And it feels like maybe the entire movie took place as a memory in his coma as he was trying to solve the mystery of who tried to set him up and who tried to kill him. I think it was revealed then that he was a cop that had been on a forced leave (by his commander) after something had gone down in the job. It was in the coma that he realized it had been his partner setting him up all along.

        I hope I’m not confusing two movies. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

        I'm looking for an old movie black and white from mid 1930's or early 1940's about a young man, in Victorian time, where he goes to schools and meets a young rich student and becomes friends. then he brings the rich friend to visits his friends from where he is from and introduces a young girl who is engage to be marry to a young man but the rich guy falls for her and run away and then abandoned her. father searchers for her and find her and bring her back , years later the two friends meet again when he goes back to his hometown and witnesses a ship in trouble in a storm so they tied a rope around his waist and swims to the ship and encounter his rich friend on the ship and eventually he drowns at the end.

        with a particularly funny scene where the groom ditches his wife on the aisle and jumps over the fence and bushes, running to his friend who had busted his wedding and they both get on the car and run away.

        The friend was wearing a Hawaiian type shirt iirc.

        The movie was probably from late 1900s or early 2000s.

        Unfortunately I don't remover anything else except this scene which I found particularly funny cause not many grooms run away from there weddings :D

        I’m trying to find a movie.

        1930-1940s era

        Black and white

        Plot: Two siblings enter a town (8-10ish) they end up with a nice young couple, they later find out everyone in the town is immortal and thus cannot have children. There is a scientist in town that turns people immortal, the children befriend him.

        The towns people try to convince them that being immortal is great, a woman tells them how miserable she is. They don’t want to be immortal.

        The children go to the scientist he convinces them he won’t hurt them, he try’s to turn them immortal.

        Additional: The couple gives them childlike humanoid robots to play with, one boy, one girl. They are a plain white and speak programmed lines.

        I could go to more depth if needed.

        This has been bugging me for years. The only things I can remember is that a woman frames a man for raping her by having sex with his relative to get "evidence" then using an elaborate system of ropes and a winch from a truck or jeep to hang herself in the middle of a large room (not dead, just strung up like the man she slept with tied her and hung her up). Think vitruvian man pose. Big house, mansion type.

        I believe she was trying to get money from this somehow. Its bothering me because I don't exactly remember it and I want to know how the rope thing was supposed to work. I saw this in the 90s late at night, probably hbo, but it might have been older than that. Either 80s or early 90s release. I keep getting it confused with "The Last Seduction" if that helps narrow down the time frame.

        Thanks!

        Looking for the name of an independent movie which I saw broadcast on our local PBS station about 2 years ago. I subsequently looked it up on the IMDB but forgot the title. There were no name stars in it. In fact, the male lead had only been in a few other things, mostly guest appearances on TV shows. No other non-indy films.

        The movie came out sometime between 2010 and 2014, from what I recall. Plot concerned a guy in his 30s who went searching for his old girlfriend from many years ago. He discovered that she passed away. He then runs into her sister, who reminded him of the old gf. He befriends her, but never tells her who he really is.

        I think "forget" may be in the title. It was a drama.

        I don't know that anyone will ever get this answer because I only know one scene out of this movie but they used to play it at this bar I'd go to so everyone could get a good laugh at how campy it was. I'm hoping you might be the one to put me out of my 20 year misery. All I know for sure is that it's set in the 80s and cheap looking. The woman is at dinner with this man and she begins to tell him this story about high school. As she talks she gets more and more wound up speaking faster, more loudly, and acting dramatically, which is scaring her date. She talks about her and her friends and when she does she sings out this "theme" song for them as the film flashbacks. ("Bomm baah da, bomm bah da") as well as when she talks about the nerdy girl with glasses who they either plan to prank or kill and I believe the tables get turned on her and her friends as the nerdy girl becomes the killer (to which the woman sings out frantically too.) By the end of the clip she's relaying the story in a hysteric fashion. I want to say someone comes to escort her out as her date stares horrified at her embarassingly dramatic recollection. It was only that clip, it was hysterical, and I could never decide whether it was a bad B movie or a comedy of a bad B horror movie. I know it's not a lot to go on but if you or anyone does know I'd love to hear from you.

        I am looking for a move I think was done in the 90's, it should be a made for TV move where a teenage boy that was running with the wrong crowd either lost his parents and got sent to another town or was sent there because he was acting out. He gets into trouble and ends up running away for somebody and falling into a big hole. When the boy wakes up he can't hear and he then goes to a school for the deaf that turns his life around. At first he's reluctant to join in with the other kids but slowly he starts to interact with the kids their and becomes friends with them and turns his life around in the process. It could have been a episode from a TV show but I don't think so. I remember it being a made for tv or after school special kind of thing and not knowing what the moved was called is driving me INSANE. Thanks for your help!!!

        Hi Guys,

        (sorry for my English)

        Does anyone remember the movie Im looking for by only one scene (Im sorry I cannot remember anything else)

        It's about few guys (friends in their fifties) and one of them is telling the others that in the elementary school he was beaten by a classmate. And they persuade him to revenge now , and they find the guy in a pub. But the revenge is funny. First they talk, the guy doesnt remember this guy, and he looks like he got tired of life (drinking). Then he says : I am sorry that I was bad with you, u can hit me as hard as u wish. But he just hit his shoulder very carefully, saying: It's okay. It's done. .. and he leaves.

        Anyone remember this scene?

Also there's a spaceship that on the inside looks like the Nevada desert. Also some kids find an alien, possible they spot it in some video footage they shot. I'm thinking it wasn't Samuel L Jackson though. Any ideas?

        This is driving me nuts! I saw an episode of a TV series in the early 2000's that was very much along the lines of The Twilight Zone or Outer Limits genre.

        A soldier unexpectedly returns home from a combat tour in the middle east to his wife and teenage son. The son is having a lot of problems and his dad has come back to help but his son sees him periodically talking to a group of other soldiers, all in combat equipment. Long story short, the father had been killed in action the day before and this was his last chance to come back to help his son. I definitely remember the song "All at Once" by Pete Yorn as part of the soundtrack but none of Pete Yorn's websites give him credit. I originally thought the actor playing the dad was Robert Urich but he died in 2002 so it couldn't have been him. Any ideas?

        Starring: Kim Novak and Doug McLure.

        There might be variations on this theme and shot in a later movie and referenced in the pages on IMDb.

        All I remember is that it is a horror movie or a thriller and there was this scene where people where driving in their car and were stopped by the police, but it wasn't actually the police, like they were just pretending to be. They took the people out of the car and brought them in a forrest I think. They were held captive in cages and I think they wore these orange prisoner outfits. That's all I remember... I really hope someone can help me with this!

        Hello. I am a 30-year-old woman living in Korea. I hope you understand my poor English.

        I wanted to find this movie, so whenever I thought of it, I looked up Google, but I couldn't find it for 20 years.

        Only my younger brother and I remember the contents of this movie.

        It is a horror movie that I watched on videotape from 2000 to 2002.

        The characters were speaking English.

        Teenagers, men and women, grandfathers and grandmothers will be trapped in buildings. (Except for teenagers, they don't know each other)

        The building owner's son was a friend of a teenager and invited him to play a murder game.

        The building owner's son talks to them through a small robot called the messenger.

        Whenever I solve a mission, I get tokens, but when I collect all of them, they say they will let me escape the building.

        Overall, the movie is bloody and cruel.

        Everything happens in the underground parking lot and the cell phone doesn't work.

        One of the Teenage men puts his head in a hole to get a token and his neck is cut off.

        Grandfather sees the cross section of the messenger robot as it cuts its ankle with wires.

        Grandmother is bad-tempered and has left the group, but she is killed by a messenger robot while she is pooping.

        The blonde teenager woman was called Monkey.

        Another teenage woman was wearing a green dress.

        She has made friends with adult men and women, and promises to go to the mountain with them if they escape from the building.

        She is brought all over from the ceiling on a wire with hooks.

        But I get rid of the hook from my body, screaming that I will escape from this building and go to the mountains.

        A man-shaped monster with a body of iron beads comes out and tries to kill them, but an adult man burns it with a flame thrower.

        So the game is over and the screen turns to the building owner's son.

        The monitor's line was connected to the belly button, and the blood-like black substance was sticky.

        He calls another friend and asks if he will play a fun game.

        When the movie is over, the overall contents of the movie, along with the name of the producer, are made into a cartoon, showing a cartoon with an ankle cut or neck cut.

        Hi,

        Cool site you have here.

        Thanks for the leads above to try to locate a movie - very useful.

        I'm in the UK and recently discovered a TV station that just plays older movies from the 1930s to 1980s (Talking Pictures). One a few weeks ago that triggered a memory of a late 60s, 1970s movie (or TV movie) that's been gnawing away - hope you can help.

        It's a British movie set in present day France (from memory), The plot involves a corporate heist and double cross. The closing sequence is when one of the ringleaders who thinks he's in the clear (thought this was Ian McShane) is confronted by the female lead at his villa (memory of beautiful cars and scenery). After she leaves, he puts on a motorcycle helmet and charges up the road on a high powered bike. As he's ridiing he replays the events and last conversation, then releases his helmet and deliberately crashes into a tree. Credits roll.

        Thanks - any pointers gratefully received.
