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 saw a movie like 5 years ago with a really interesting concept. But don't know the name.

      A mom is going crazy and sees someone trying to break in her house but it is actually her reacting to herself.

      I remember the mom locked in the bathroom with her baby and realizes that no one is after her leaves the bathroom to check then does everything the "intruder" was doing.

      Anyone know the name?

      Apocalyptic end of the world movie with only 3 people left, two men and a woman. I think it was in black and white. I only remember 2 plot points: 1) the woman ends up sleeping with the other man and when her husband/boyfriend finds out she says "he didn't rape me"; 2) one of the guys hits the other in the head with a rock. I think he dies eventually, but it takes a while.

      I think it's an asian movie, well it's set in asia! There's this school going boy that is sad and depressed due to pressure from his family to study hard. One day, an orange coloured (it was animated in the movie the rest are humans) creature(?) secretly comes to be with him.It has magical abilities. He's freaked out at first but later they become best friends! One thing I remember for certain is that the boy does poorly during an exam and this creature looks over his bench from a tree just outside the window of the class. The boy tells the creature to help him and it transfers all the answers from the boy's friend (a girl) to his while the girl walks over to the teacher to submit. The boy submits the paper as well only to realize the name of the girl also transferred to his paper which was completely unanswered before. Eventually, the creature gets ready to leave. The boy begs it not to. But it says it now has to go help another boy like him or something along those lines. The creature goes up into the sky and flies away as the boy watches with tears in his eyes. Btw his family never find out about it!

      Sorry for my English. It's my third language.

      I have a memory of a horror movie, whose lead character I think, experiences sort of delusions, which lead him to kill his wife and burying her. The plot in the beginning shows both of them driving on a highway, eventually they pick up a hitchhiker psychopath (one of the main delusions). Another I can recall is a bee swarm near a house.

      i think this movie is came out around 2012 now bear with me i hardly remember the details. basically i saw this film around the time the place beyond the pines was being promo’ed. anyway, i think it was about this group of friends who in the 70’s were part of a riot and they got away with it but they were being looked for by cops (or fbi or something) and when the cops finally caught to the main characters one of them left his little daughter in the hotel and he just kept running away. one of his old colleagues got caught while trying to escape in a yatch by the end of the movie. and i think he turns himself in.

      I am trying to think of this movie I ran across when I was younger. I am starting to become convinced that it was a dream, and I am having a Sinbad/Shazaam moment...

      I think this movie came out in between 1987 to 1994. That’s when I saw it. A guy climbs through a window (he’s in a cheap suit like a salesman). I think he was wearing a hat. Maybe not. A woman is in her bedroom. She has short hair and bangs I think (maybe like Uma in Pulp Fiction only red). They’re both a little older. He’s giving her a massage (uses lotion). He then massages her breasts. She asks him if he’s enjoying this and he says something like I’m having a great time. I think another scene in the movie is a blonde woman on stage and a guy comes on a stage and takes her white dress off.

      I have tried to find this movies for years!!! It was released in the 2000's. There wasn't any famous actors or else I'm sure I would've at least remembered one. I remember it is about a very rich American family (Dad, son, and teenage/young adult daughter). They live in a very nice house that is very techy and some how a man manages to break in. I remember he wears a mask thorough the whole movie. I think the dad gets locked away or something because the movie followed the boy and girl the whole movie. There is a scene where the kid runs to his closet and climbs it to hide in the air vents and another scene where the girl (i cant remember if the boy was there to) are hiding in the closet and they somehow light the house on fire so the man can burn. The closet had a glass window and it is fireproof/bullet proof. The man tries to break it, but he can't. Help!!!

      I am looking for a Horror movie, from the late 90's, early 2000's, I guess. There was a young man who met a girl in a bikers bar. She lived alone with her mother, who didn't allow her to go out. I remember, the mother killed the Sheriff an tied up the young man in a barn, pouring candle wax over his eyes. Then bringing him to a secret/ hidden garden, where she tied him up and the girl should kill him. There were a lot of mumified bodys of men, the mother had killed before. I think, the girl killed her mother instead and drove away with the young man on his motorcycle.

      I think the man came into town, looking for his father and one of the bodys in the hidden garden was his father...

      Hi

      I’ve had a movie stuck in my head for about 5 months. It’s about a teenage girl who’s mother dies and she is sent to live with her step father. Every morning when he goes for a jog she clears the living room and dances. (It seems to be ballet/modern dancing.) She hates her step father so decides to live with her real father instead. They let him know to fetch her at the car park one evening and wait there for ages and he doesn’t pitch up. She decides to just go home. A while later he pitches up at their front door and the girl goes with him. He is not wealthy or hygienic and is very harsh. She later runs back to her step father and finally appreciates him.

      Please help

      Thanks

      This is as n old movie 40's 50's 60's 70's I don't know. But it involves 2 white guys broke and is going on a date with 2 girls. There are 3 scenes that I remember. 1. Apparently the 2 friends were owing another man money and was in a store with the girls so one friend whilst speaking with the girls asked the other " how is the weather? " the other friend then looked outside and said words to effect "its terrible, thunderstorm "

      2. The 2 friends had to take the 2 girls on a date, in an effort to impress the girls hired a horse and carriage with a driver. On reaching the restaurant both friends had to make up money on the spot to pay the driver, whilst attempting to hide that they're broke from the girls.

      3. Whilst in the restaurant the friends were ordering food for themselves and the girls. One of the friends looked outside the enclosed area they were seated and was thinking how to pay the bill. Whilst he was doing that a lady in the restaurant found a bag of money and saw him looking out looking worried and gave him the bag of money thinking it belonged to him.

      It's animated. I think it might have been a movie trailer before the sailor moon movie "promise of the rose" . Someone/something evil is taking/kidnapping all the children from this town (maybe causing them to sleepwalking or possessing them in some way at night) and they're on some sort of floating ship or boat that's hovering over. It's such a vague memory but I'd love to see it again.

      Movie where a man forces another man to drive a car while sitting behind him with a gun in the back of his seat. They stop to switch license plates off of random cars and the driver compiles them behind his back so when the kidnapper eventually shoots him through the seat at a traffic stop the plates block the shot.

      I'm looking for a movie about a man and his son who recently his lost wife. Because of this their relationship was damaged and they didn't really live well. Then a man comes into their lives and started living with them. The stranger, who somehow didn't get kicked out, did things that the dad and the kid didn't like and at times do bad stuff when he was out. But he ends up helping the father and the kid fix their lives and relationship. the stranger leaves with the father and son thankful since he helped them out. As the movie ends there's a far shot of the house above with the strangers name on the roof. This movie was probably filmed in the early 2000's or late 1990's and the name of the movie might be the same as the stranger if I remembered correctly.

      Hi all, needing your help in finding a film -

      looking for the film where a child stalker is driving to reach a young girl in some type of park, and is hit hit and killed by a tractor trailer on the way there, at end of the movie...

      Guessing this was made in the 90's or early 2000's (?) - There's a man (lead character) who early on observes truck stopping by this girl and figures something weird is happening, but no one will believe him as he's known as a recluse and drunk. He finally gets an officer to pay attention to him in the end, and they are in park where child is at end, but stalker never shows up as he has been hit/killed on the way there...so no one ever realizes he was accurate and telling the truth.

      I believe the main character was played by a 'name' actor but I can't quite bring to mind who it was...I've looked at a few I thought it might be but didn't come up with the film. My searches are coming up with nothing close. Anyone remembering this film??? -any help is appreciated, my film buff friend thinks I'm crazy :)

      I'm trying to remember the name of this movie i believe it came out no earlier than 2000. All I remember is these people in breathing suits (almost halo looking) go into this "non-safe zone" to collect kids and bring them back to their colony. there is also this huge holographic security wall the lead girl escapes though. there's a scene where once brought into this safe colony they enter a sanitization room then head to a training room where some people are given guns and others are in chairs in an 'O' shape where part of its a hologram map or something. I also remember the lead girl gets chosen to go "upstairs" via a white elevator and enters a white futuristic room.

      I saw this movie in the early 2000's but I'm not sure when it was filmed. I'm a bit cloudy on remembering the plot but I'll do my best.

      The plot was about a black kid who was living in the ceiling space of his highschool. He took his friends up there to show them a mural he'd painted on the wall. A security guard catches them or something and the kid ends up taking him hostage and the police are called. The kid doesn't want to surrender because his dad was shot and killed by police for taking his Asthma inhaler out.

      Hopefully someone can help me out.

      Thanks.

      Hi there, I've seen a movie(with episodes) a long time ago where a woman gets married with a Muslim guy and has children with him and then herself converts to Muslim, meanwhile her father is like Christian or Masonic person. He's a powerful person. He kills his daughter's husband by throwing him off a window. He joins rituals where they kill babies and drink their blood.

      Her daughter converts to Islam and does the things Muslims do, meanwhile her father hates it and I think if I'm not wrong he wants to kill her daughter as well.

      Her father also has a bodyguard, it's a man that has problem with his back(he's curved) he also has white hair and it's called Samuel.

      I don't know any other names, nor the TV Show's name.

      I also think it's a Turkish TV Show, but an old one. Please if you find out, let me know!

      s a movie where people are out in the woods and are hunted by what I think are monkeys. And some of the people running in the woods robbed a bank I think. It was on the SYFY channel when I watched it as a child. In the end I remember a sheriff caught one of the suspects and they drove away in a truck with the suspect in handcuffs waving his hands in the wind out the window.

      Hey, the only scene i remeber is the ending (i think). The mom wakes her child up and hides them underneath thier bed and tells them to be quiet. Then, the mom leaves and you hear a man come into the house and the they start arguing and you hear a gunshot (man probably killed the mom). Then you hear footsteps of the man's boots and he comes into the child's room (i guess looking for thm to kill them too) and once he realizes they are not there he sits on the childs bed and shoots himself. In that whole sceen you see it from the child's view from underneath the bed.

      Boy wonder 12 days ago

      I saw this film in the 90s, I am not sure who the main character is but he is into guns. He lives with his wife and kids I think he’s got a daughter and 2 sons. I think the daughter has a boyfriend and he acts a little weird when he comes to the home for the first time. A couple of days later the boyfriend comes over and takes the family hostage but the father isn’t home he’s out shooting. The 2 sons escape into the air vents and go to the front of the house but it’s only a small vent hole so they can’t escape. Then there dad comes home and they start shouting him but he doesn’t know where all the noise is coming from so he shrugs it off and walks in the house anyway only to be taken hostage with his own guns. Please someone help it’s driving me crazy.

      Foreign dramatic film from the 80s/90s. Lead lady character spoke 4 to 5 languages in the film. One tragedy after another, including someone being set on fire. Great acting by the lead. I have searched everywhere for the title. Hopefully someone can help.

      There is another movie I'm trying to remember the name of: it involves a bank robbery wherein the robbers leave the bank pretending to be hostages who have been released. They make it to their getaway car, making the police think they are still in the bank by talking to them on a phone(radio?). They are succeeding until one of the robbers accidently beeps the car horn and the cops figure out they are no longer in the bank. That all happens near the beginning of the movie, after that I don't remember much of it.
