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.

        Searching for a 90's ish film. I thought it was Devil's Pond with Tara Reid but that's not it.

        This movie was the same type of setting - new Husband & Wife. He takes her to an island in the middle of a lake (?) surrounded by trees for a honeymoon. He isolates her.

        He swaps out her birth control pills. Thwarts her every escape attempt and bats her around a bit.

        Finally she's pregnant and there is this iconic scene where she gets into the bathtub in her white (?) nightie, cuts her upper thigh, then starts screaming like she's going into labor, calling for him to help her, she's losing the baby. He needs to take her to the hospital. Blood everywhere.

        That's where my memory fails and I can't remember what either actor looked like.

        Could someone please help me figure the name of this movie

        Looking for a television show that aired in 2013

        In one scene there is a woman in a red dress with blond hair sitting alone in a pitch black room that vanishes while moaning. In another scene a man uses lockpicks to unlock a door while standing next to another woman. The woman starts to panic and the man goes through the lockpicks in his hands very quickly. He eventually finds the correct lockpick and unlocks the door.I saw the scenes in 2013.Im not sure which channel it was on but possibly the syfy, amc, or usa channel. In the end credits someone says whoever is watching us is definitely testing us. Im not sure if that is what they say exactly. Also in another scene a man and a woman encounter a room with racks of weapons.

        A western type movie i believe from the 80s where an indian couple....they do something where the woman has to be hung. But when she is about to get hung, her husband switches places with her so he is hung instead. They ddint know because their heads were covered with a type of bag. I think the ending shows the woman rising away on a horse and she stops to look back at where hes getting hung. So he saved her life with his.

        Hi everybody!

        Recently I’ve seen a movie on Hollywood classic channel or TCM. Don’t remember any actors’ names. The plot: the min character, a woman, is unhappy in her marriage (sometimes beaten by her husband) and decides to move to other town with her 8? Year old son. The woman plays piano and sings in some scenes. In new towns she meets different men and her troubles continue. The son is unhappy but supports his mother. The mothers decides to sing in a bar but people don’t treat her seriously. I’m not sure which year the movie was released but between 1950-1980. Could you please help me with title? I need it to later search for the song the woman sings playing the piano in one of the scenes. Thanks

        I apologize ahead of time. I know nothing extremely helpful on finding the movie but I will try to recall everything I can.

        I was On Demand a few weeks ago messing around with the voice command button. I found a movie I would like to watch and now I can't remember the name or anything helpful for google to find it.

        It is about a boy and his parents. The boy witnesses a robbery (or maybe a murder, it was something traumatic) at a convienent store that shakes his faith in God. The parents want to move but the boy doesn't want to. When they move the boy meets a friend and the friend brings him back to God.

        I think the friend and the boy spend a lot of time in nature.

        I also think Connect or Connectivity was in the name, but I could be wrong.

        I'm sorry I don't remember much more. Thank you in advance if you try to find it.

I think it was a desert setting, a girl was trapped in like a red laser spiderweb or something, she may have been shrunk... there was a bad guy who I can't quite picture, but in a very foggy way he kinda reminds me of pinhead from hellraiser in a way

        I saw this movie as a kid, it was on a projector in my school before 1980. Young brother and sister are running from someone trying to find their grandmother's house. At the end they get to her and she is standing in the doorway yelling out to the people that were chasing the kids that they'll never get their hands on them. Nice adventure movie, rolling hills, I think they started in a city and ended up in the country. Had to have been made pre-1975. Maybe even Ireland or something, like the grandmother had an irish accent. It was our go-to on rainy days.

She has an affair with her, maybe English teacher, whom she calls JJ. The Universe in the mirror is very much like our own but mirrored; she brings a love note home from JJ through the mirror and it's written in mirror image. The mother find the note and an investigation is started on the normal side. It wasn't a cartoon, it was live action. This is a freaking 13 year old earworm and I need it out.

I was a child in the 90s when I watched it, so my guess is that it is an 80s fantasy movie. I thought it may be neverending story 2, but did not see anything about that after a wikipedia search.

        I've never seen Emerald Forest. Been a long time since I watched The Bounty and it mixes with other Bligh movies in my memory, but I don't remember a scene like that. Kurtz certainly had that kind of vibe in Apocalypse Now. I haven't watched it for many years, planning to rewatch it next month when the 40th anniversary version comes out.

        I think I remember seeing some similar scene in a movie about Aztecs or something, but I have no idea what movie that might have been.

        Well, that might have been it, but I'm not even sure. I guess it probably was so thanks! I watched Apocalypse Now last night and had thought that Kurtz did that and that the scene was in that movie and was surprised when it wasn't then I read about missing scenes from it thinking I had originally seen a longer version, but the missing scenes said nothing of that scene. Anyway, no scene like that exists in any version of Apocalypse Now? What about The Bounty? Emerald Forest? I think you found the scene I was thinking about, though I remembered it a little different. Can you please confirm this by answering my questions? Thanks! I do appreciate it.

        There is a movie in which a man is searching for his wife (probably kidnapped or for some other reason) and later he meets a woman who offers to help him in finding his wife. Later, the two of them get involved intimately. She dresses nicely as well. There is some good music during their intimate scene too (I liked it very much as per my memory and am searching for the movie for the same reason).

The twist is the family is trying to kill her and her congregation members are trying to save her. It is all set in a house in the woods I think.

        I’m looking for a movie set in the ‘80s or 90’s. There’s a group of teenagers drinking and they climb a water tower or something of the sort. One of them falls down into the lake (i think he was an outcast). The rest freak out and run away. He’s in the hospital and only one of them visits him. I can’t remember anything else. Thanks in advance!

        Hello everyone, I've been trying to find this movie for ages that I watched as a kid. I have no idea what the title is and don't even remember if it was in English. I only remember two scenes. I think there are three girls who are spies or something of that sort. One of them gets surrounded by "SWAT" looking people at the top of a building and then she falls down backwards from the rooftop. The other scene I remember is i think it was the ending scene, one of the other girls comes to visit someone in their house and she gets surrounded by those swat type people and i think they blow up the house or something and I'm not sure but I think she gets killed as well. Really appreciate it if anyone knows what movie Im talking about! Lol, please help, I need to know.

        New try... @Baff it was not dr Who...

        A movie where a middle aged woman is (for reasons I cannot remember) locked into a bug house. She tries to get out but every exit is locked. There are also live sized dolls in the house, and as the woman wonders around you hear her thought and the dolls giggling. The next morning the woman is found dead, presumably killed by the dolls.

        We saw this film in the 90s. Could possibly have been british?

        Hello dear Author,

        The movie I am trying trying to find has a scene that sticks out in my mind that goes a little like this: A madman has captured A family on a boat and has them below deck. The killer proceeds to engage in explicited activities with the wife of the protagonist while he watches through a window. Some how the boat crashes and the killer is handcuffed to the mast of the ship with the protagonist. The killer proclaims " Now we'll settle this like men!" And they both proceed to beat each other with rocks. There is an ongoing storm that washes the antagonist away before a Victor is declared...... That's about all I have based on memory. Hope this was enough information for you.

        Respectfully,

        Nicholas.

        Hi I'm trying to look for this movie that I either watched late at night on YTV or Family channel, I only remember one scene really where there's a guy that is white who is thinking of killing himself on the rooftop of a hospital, and a black girl, kind of tom boyish, with short hair, maybe a hospital hat one, convinces him not to kill himself. They end up going on an adventure that night, and I think she's either really sick and dying, or dies. He also lost a lot of friends since he's been sick. I would say that its a early 90's late 80's movie. Its kind of a sad/ romantic movie.

        When her husband is expectedly admitted to the hospital, she gets summoned to the hospital by phone. The woman drives the white Cadillac aggressively to the hospital (occasionally off-road and over hills and such) while losing the bumpers, hubs caps, and other bits and pieces. She drives furiously to get to the hospital. By the time she arrives at the hospital the Cadillac it’s destroyed.

An uncle believes he is a fish and lives beneath a clear glass coffee table, making "fish faces" up through the glass at anyone who passes by.

        Hi there’s a film about a girl1 and a girl 2. The main character (girl 1) meets this girl and after a while in the movie she falls in love. After the first kiss (girl 2) wasn’t interested. She liked her but not in that way and she likes girls too but she just wasn’t interested for some reason. I think when girl 1 wanted to be with girl 2. Girl 2 had a flashback for a moment of her being with another girl (a girlfriend) and I think they were doing drugs by the beach. (The flashback was brief and quick so it’s not that important but still). I think girl 1. Went to visit a family member and she ended up meeting girl 2 and liked her. I would say there’s only 3 main characters of the movie. The 2 girls and the first girls family member she was living with.

        It is a really old movie and it's in black and white. Two people get stuck on a Island a guy who is some kind of solider and a nurse they chill there for a while and learn about some monster and the locals that are long dead and a crazy white guy who used to live there. One day a plane crashes on the island and a pilot is in it the girl saves him but I think he loses his arm I think he was British. A love triangle starts because a romance was beginning to bud between the nurse and solider before the pilot arrived. I don't know how the movie ended.

        I'm pretty sure it had to names.

        Guy (Reality TV exec) takes his date back to his appartment. After sex or in the morning tells her he only sleeps with anyone once and she leaves. She has short black hair, is a pretty woman.

        She returns and breaks into his appartment or house, ties him to a chair. She teases him for some time while holding him at knife point.

        I think he was setup on the date as a joke by his work friends, she was once rejected for the show he works on though and wanted revenge.

        The film ends with the guy escaping but being chased and stabbed by the obsessed fan.

        I think this movie was on Netflix but cannot find it. Most of the movie is in the appartment.
