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.

      Looking for the name of a movie where a girl, in her 20's I'd guess, moves into a fairly upscale apartment and she is tormented by the women who lives above her. The lady is always pounding on the floor, claiming she is too loud, and making too much noise. I vaguely recall the neighbor trying to sexually assault the girl, or get her to perform sexual favors in exchange for her to stop tormenting her. I want to say it's from the 90's or 2000's. Sort of a thriller, low budget and independent possibly. Artsy, type film.

      It was a horror movie, similar to The Shining. A family kind of owns a hotel, and that hotel is haunted. Father of that family is affected by ghosts and he becomes mindless, and he tries to kill his wife and son. Later he becomes normal and realises blowing up the hotel is only way to end this, so he let her wife and son escape, and releases some kind of gas from tubes and blows up the hotel, sacrificing himself in the process. Many years later, son is graduated from college, and sees his father's ghost in the crowd

      I believe that movie is "Mortal Thoughts" (1991), with Demi Moore.

      "In flashback, Cynthia and Joyce are best friends who work together. Joyce's husband, Jimmy, is abusive, both physically and emotionally, and she expresses a desire to kill him several times. One night, Cynthia accompanies Joyce, and Jimmy, to a festival. When Jimmy becomes drunk and picks a fight with Joyce, he heads back to their van to go home. Cynthia follows him to make sure he gets to the van and to take the keys from him, to let him sleep it off in the van. Jimmy makes an advance to Cynthia, who spurns him and leaves him at the van. Later Jimmy is found dead in the van, with his throat cut." --Wikipedia

      I don't remember much as i was flicking between channels when watching but what i remember:

      I think movie was released 2000-2010

      The main character was a blonde woman maybe in her 30-40's

      She had married an older man who owned a pub or hotel

      She worked as a care nurse or something along those lines, she was taking care of an older lady and developed a relationship with her patients son when he came to visit a few times

      I'm hazy on the premise of the movie but I think that the son she was having an affair with proposed to her and she hid from him that she was already married and accepted the offer.

      Her husband was kinda suspicious of her and at one point she was going on a date with the son and her husband was snooping on her and she pretended she was going to work with her nurses uniform on and when she got out of the house she took it off with sexy date clothes like she was going to a nightclub or something hidden underneath

      I'm pretty sure the movie was produced or filmed in the UK as she spoke with an english accent

      Ok, my turn. I remember seeing a movie that I probably shouldn't have seen at my age - sometime in the 70's. It was present day (70's I think) and all I remember is a group of men (could be cops) are in the middle of stealing something from (I think it was a mob boss or a really powerful guy) in his house at night, lights off and they were wearing ski masks or something. Then the mob boss's wife or gf walked in on them and one guy pushes her over onto a desk and they struggle....him behind her, holding her arms/hands face down on the desk...she is fighting...and then she starts enjoying the "contact" and then he realizes that she's pushing back on him and enjoying it and so this goes on for a few minutes. They must've gotten away. The next scene I remember is the mob boss finds them and makes them stand in a line and asks his gf (or wife) to point out which guy she "fought" with. She goes up to the first man and (maybe more) realizing that she can't identify them by their faces, so she starts grabbing their crotches to identify "the one". And that's all I remember - being so young is why these scenes made such an impression on me, I'm guessing. Been looking for years.

      I'm looking for what looks like a late 80s, Femme Fatale type film. In the first scene there was a guy in a hurry to get to a Hotel Room while in that room a woman was having sex with a man tied to a bed. Basically the woman strangled him to Death during sex. And when the man in a hurry made it to the room, he started taking pictures of the dead guy tied to the bed. Then he leaves the room but before the woman left she lays on the dead guy while kissing him and says" I was good but you know What, You were good too!"

      Then later in the movie there's a scene where a guy is killed with an explosive golf ball. Any Idea what this film is? Get back at me. Thank You

      I watched this movie about 5 to 10 years ago. It was about a girl who was living with her boyfriend -if i’m not wrong- and when he wasn’t home she found this mirror in the house that she could go behind and i guess she was trapped there! but on the other side the mirror wasn’t actually a morror and looked like a glass which she could see the bedroom. and she realized that her boyfriend is cheating on him.

      i remember the movie started with a scene that a girl was staring at the sink and there were some waves on the water.

      also i think it was an italian movie but im not sure.

      any help would be appreciated cause i’m actually looking for it in a while with no results!

      I watched a movie as a young kid that my biological mom really liked. Plot was as follows: 2 women were friends and go to carnival with one of their boyfriends. He is a gambler and goes back to the van for more money(I think). Theres a scene with a roulette wheel in slow motion. While his gf is at wheel, hes in the van and tries to rape his gf's friend. She finds a boxcutter and slits his throat. They dispose of the body together after freaking out. I've been trying to find this movie for years! Thank you!

      Looking for a movie I saw in the last 5 to 10 years. All I can remember is that there was a group of dirty cops who met in a building to suit up for a bust. Then they drove to a project type apartment across town in a different district, so they wouldn't be made, to pull a fake raid on a gang/drug pad. One of the the cops got shot and killed, the rookie maybe. I also think I remember that one of the dealers grabs a bag of cash from inside an emptied out air conditioner stash spot and jumps out the window. I think the cops wore ski masks during the raid.

      Any help would be really appreciated. I have tried to find this one for a while now.

      This is a recent short movie with a famous young male actor (just can't recall who). He's playing a coming-of-age boy in a wheelchair who leads a dysfunctional life. he wants to go live with his brother but the brother doesn't really want to be bothered to deal with him. The main character meets a girl and he tries to have sex with her but he has a colostomy that gets in the way (or something like that). I can barely remember the details, but can't recall who plays the main character or the name of the film.

      I'm wondering what the name of a 1990s TV movie is where the main actor is a husband whose wife is in a coma. The man looks like Craig T Nelson, although I can't be sure it was him. He falls in love with another woman and she asks him to marry her. He refuses to leave his wife who is in a coma and so they break up. They reunite many years later and he tells her and admits to her that she was the love of his life. The backdrop for a lot of the scenes that they have together is in a cabin in the woods.

      Please, help me to find out this one:

      It's an early 90's thriller, maybe late 80's. It could be a made-for-TV but it had some nudity so I think it's probably a feature film. I remember the scene of the wife hiding behind a table, livingroom table or home office table and she is scared and crying because a few steps from her, her husband is having sex with his mistress, and I think the mistress is his secretary.

      A lot of things happens and her husband is a dangerous man, the mistress tries to help the wife and the husband hangs the mistress right at the stairs of their house. They are rich and it's a big house if a remember it right.

      Thank you if you could help me.

      The movie I think it's a late 80's or even very early 90's (probably late 80's) slasher movie. It's set in a house and I remember a white man wearing black shirt and black pants walking around the house to see if he could find friends, he has brown hair and blue eyes.

      Some of the Young folks die and their bodies are displayed in the attic. The killer I think uses a mask or his face is not shown and he seats in a rocking chair in the attic.

      One of those who die, is a blonde girl, she has curly hair shoulder length and she was wearing a moletom White shirt. I also remember a White guy dying, brown hair and I think he's wearing blue jeans and maybe gray shirt.

      One of the dead bodies had a big throat injury.

      Thank you so much for whoever can help me.

      I saw a scary movie when I was young. I think it may have been a British movie made in the 60's. It was about a librarian stuck in a library after hours. There was someone in the library with her trying to kill her. When she tried to get help by yelling outside through a window the year turned into the 1800's. She was being hunted by the killer who had killed a librarian in that library back in the 1800's. If anyone knows this movie, please let me know? I would love to see it again...

      Movie may be from (2015-2017 range):

      I saw this movie a couple of months ago. An older guy (late 50s) meets a younger woman (may be in her late 20s), while they are stuck in traffic. The actress is very beautiful. He is instantly mesmerized by her, and communicates using notes; they're both in separate cars.

      They have an affair, and he likes to ask her history questions and she gets turned on. There's a mast**bat**n scene in car. She isn't interested and like football, but he doesn't know anything about it.

      There is a scene where the actress is lying on her belly, naked and the guy puts the tea cup on her lower back.

      Once she gets an answer wrong and they break up. Please help.

      Long shot but here it goes;

      I'm looking for a movie that may have been based in the 90's. The ONLY thing I remember is it's about a couple who rob a bank I believe. Toward the ending I remember the woman and the man stop at an abandon-like gas station, the woman goes inside to use the bathroom I think, and when she comes back outside the car and her boyfriend (may he was her husband) is gone. Then I remember he was driving down the road very fast thinking that he has the money in a bag in the front seat, as he's driving he looks for it in the bag and realizes the money isn't there. Furious, he turns the car around and ends up at the gas station to either look for her, or the bag of money. when he comes back outside the car is not longer there, then the scene flips to her in the car with the money and she's smelling it as she's driving. She laughs and says thanks spud (I think that's his name but I could be wrong)

      I've been thinking a lot about it for a while now lol also from what I remember this movie is sexually explicit

      I need critical help! I can't find this movie, for so many years, now, it'a a 90's tv movie perhaps, no well-known actors but the star looks like a young JOE MANTEGNA. He drags his male friend arround town meeting girls to erase the memory of his ex girlfriend, although every girl has the same name, wich I can't remember and provably the name of the movie! I've a feeling that it was a short name like Eve, Jane, Barb, Jenny, Jessie... The girl is that nineties prototype, blonde, kinda southern style, Alicia Silverstone or Brittany Daniel type. This two guys where often on a golf course and I guess the leader work on house maintenance

      I saw this movie within the last few years, but have been completely unable to track down the name of it since. I believe the movie is set in pre-WWII Japan (?). A young British military wife has met and had an affair with a Japanese military officer and they have a son. He returns to Japan and sends for her. She moves to Japan and soon her lover takes their son, who was living with her, and places him with another family but refuses to tell her where he is. Refusing to abandon her son, she ends up assimilating into the Japanese culture and getting a job where she helps the local women dress in modern European fashion since the styles the shop offers are twenty years old. At one point, her lover’s wife, knowing this British woman is her husband’s mistress, comes to her for a complete European wardrobe for her trip to Europe with her husband, only to cancel the order later. The movie ends with the British woman fleeing the looming war. She pleads with her lover to tell her where she can locate their son, and he makes it possible for her to meet her son for a few short minutes.

      This is driving me crazy that I can not remember name of this movie.....I believe the main character is a psychiatrist of some sort and he later learns that his patients are dead/ghosts. He finds this out by following a man, who is a patient or friend, to a train station or something and that is where he finds out that the people were actually dead the entire time that they were his patients. In the end he goes home to his significant other, I can't remember if it's his wife or girlfriend, and come to find out she was actually dead the whole time as well. She has blonde hair and she ends up leaving after he has realized that she is dead and that he will be ok if she leaves. It's not the sixth sense and it's not backtrack but by god if I can't remember the name I may go crazy lol it's not scary or spooky at all and I believe that I have watched it in the past year or so..... please help!!!!!

      Hi I saw a trailer for a horror movie back in the early 2000’s and i’ve been looking for it ever since. I believe there’s a teenage boy in his room and he’s looking out his window (maybe through binoculars) at his neighbor’s house. His neighbor is a male and has guests over. I can’t remember if the teenage boy’s parents were some of the guests or if they were somewhere else, but they weren’t home. Anyway, the neighbor brings the guests downstairs and straps them to tables or something. The neighbor then catches or almost catches the boy watching him in the window. That’s all I can remember. Please help it would be amazing!! I’ve been looking for this for so long.

      Hi, there. I'm looking for a movie from the early 2000s....I think the plot was three men who all end up meeting the same woman at different points throughout the movie, and each falls in love with her. The film is similar in tone and style to Keeping the Faith, and I believe the movie title has the name of the characters in it; at least, the names of the three men. It's driving me crazy that I can't find it, lol.

      This a movie possibly from the early 2000s. In this movie, a woman must go into hiding from her abusive/murderous husband. The husbands choice of killing a person is by tying them up and putting a bag on their head sealing it so they die from carbon dioxide poisoning. At some point, the woman meets an Asian man at the bar after he saves her from being harassed by some other men at the pool table. At some point, she falls in love with him and they take down her husband together.

      This is a UK film, made maybe in the 1940's about an army officer who sends home the very efficient & charming soldier serving under him to his country home to help his wife fix up the house and prepare for his arrival. This soldier is very attentive to the wife who at first finds his presence a bit uncomfortable but then gets used to his efficient running of the house. There is another man who drops by to try and seduce the woman...which the soldier discourages... I guess it's a comedy.

      I'm wondering what the name of a 1990s TV movie is where the main actor is a husband whose wife is in a coma. The man looks like Craig T Nelson, although I can't be sure it was him. He falls in love with another woman and she asks him to marry her. He refuses to leave his wife who is in a coma and so they break up. They reunite many years later and he tells her and admits to her that she was the love of his life. The backdrop for a lot of the scenes that they have together is in a cabin in the woods.

      Hi again, unfortunately @LizzieSalander that wasn't the movie I was looking for. It's not a horror film or to do with vampires or lesbians for that matter. It's a very gentle French film which I've been told was the inspiration for Thelma and Louise. It's slow moving and the cinematography is beautiful, of the French Alps or somewhere in France with rolling hills and mountains. There are 2 bored teens/young 20's girls who decide just to drive off one summer, and see what they encounter. From what I can remember towards the end two blokes appear to be helpful (maybe they've broken down?) but then try to rape them, and one of the girls gets a rock and concusses (she thinks she might have killed him) the one on her friend. They flee. At the very end they're in a cafe/bar drinking coffee. They've heard on the radio they're wanted and when the barman pops out to make a phone call one presumes he's ringing the police (he's not, he can't get through to whoever he was calling) and she shoots him. I'd love to know the name of this film, which I saw in the late 70's maybe early 80's. Thanks

A young woman comes home very early in the morning and goes in the bathroom and quickly changes to go out again to work. She sees her sister before she leaves and another man who she does not get along with (cousin/uncle).

      Mafia movie, older than 2001. There's a scene where a family is getting revenge on another family. The mother or grandmother is brought outside to a truck that sells food products (bread?). Looks like a small U-Haul. As the back door is rolled up, the camera switches to the inside of the truck.

      You see the bad guys with the mother (grandmother) dive off to the side, and the mother and I believe another family member gets shot by two guys in back of truck standing up and shooting with automatic rifles.

      I had searched for a long time this movie and already asked here, but I think nobody saw it or answered so, here I go again..

      I think it's a foreign film from the 60's or maybe from the 70's about a married laboratorian who falls in love with his young co-worker and he eventually during a dinner tells his wife the situation and she reacts quite calm but sad and accepts the fact. Then the husband decides to escape to another country with his young lover but before that he tells his wife while she's in the bedroom and she, apparently, lets him go..

      and that's all I can remember about it

      Movie; A man returns to his hometown, I think he was a writer. He was raised by his grandmother because his mother died when he was young. There is a local unsolved mystery that happened in the fifties in which a young girl went missing and all they found were scraps of her bloody clothes in the woods. He unravels the mystery, realizing that his mother's premature death and that of the missing teenager are connected. Apparently the young girl had been sleeping with a prominent man in town and gotten pregnant. Our protagonist's mother performed secret abortions, however the young woman died during the procedure. On the way to dispose of her body, the protagonist's mother gets into a car accident and the car catches on fire. Thus, the mother dies in this accident and no one ever connects the other body with that of the missing teenager. Throughout the course of the movie the man unravels this mystery, looking back over old court documents and speaking with locals such as the doctor (who the girl originally asked to perform the abortion). I believe this movie is from the nineties, or maybe the late eighties.
