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.

      @1981300SD What kind of sign? Street sign? Store sign? Hotel vacancy sign? Welcome to the city sign? City population sign? Sign for a mental institute, government installation, experimental lab, etc?

      I've seen a fair number of movies that ended with a shot of some old sign for one reason or other. Any other details you might remember, might help narrow it down.

      I’m looking for a movie where in the beginning the father beats his son for doing terrible in sport then his girlfriend comforts him. I think they try and run off together but father catches them and starts to beat up his son so his girlfriend kills his father with a crown. Then the rest of the movie they are covering up the murder. I think it is a romance/drama/thriller and the couple is in high school.

Company owner maybe? and they plan to go out on a vacation at their holiday home but end up staying with her boyfriend, where she discovers that he's super rich. She has a younger brother, there's a scene where glass shatters and goat's piss is covered all over the floor. Also another scene where he has a party. The mother smoked weed. Think the films set around Christmas time but not directly Christmas themed. Appreciate any ideas

      I’m trying to find a movie. I think 60s or 70s. A married couple move into this awesome 70s modern house, the wife is warned away by a local, I think she is in an accident and dies. It turns out it was a plot by the husband and the dead wife’s friend/sister who are having an affair?? I have been looking for hours. I found it once before. The title might have Light in it, the estate had a name iirc, it is either British or American. Thanks!!

      Repost:

      Please help! I am trying to remember the title of a movie. I am almost 50 yrs old now and I watched this movie only once when I was a boy in the 1970's so I believe the movie was made in the 70's, possibly the late 60's.

      I'll tell you what I remember about it: The movie revolved around a troubled/delinquent boy. In one scene, he was given the Rorschach (Ink Blot) test by a doctor or psychiatrist. EVERY time the Dr. would show this boy an Inkblot and ask what it looked like to him, the boy would reply, "It looks like sh*t." That's all the boy would ever reply with.

      In the very end of the movie, for some reason, the boy commits suicide by hanging himself with (I believe) a bed sheet. He hung himself in either a reformatory school or in the hospital.

      That's all I remember. I'm sorry I don't know who any of the actors were in this movie. But I would like to see it again. Please help. Thanks!

      Looking for a European drama from the 80s or 90s about a lonely woman who works in a plant nursery or florist who meets and then forms a relationship with a male cross-dresser / trans-woman.

      If I remember rightly, the movie starts with the woman pretending to forget her wallet after a taxi ride home so she can offer the driver sex in exchange for the fare, which they have in her greenhouse.

      Trying to figure out if what I remember was an actual scene from a movie or a weird dream I had as a kid. I only saw one part. Seemed to be set in the 70's or 80's. There were 2 women in a kitchen and appear to be mother and daughter. They are both cowering on the floor and there is a man standing over them but you only see his feet. The younger woman is pregnant and gives birth but its not a baby, its a grey blob. The blob skids across the floor and the man steps on it and it explodes all over the room.

      @plucki That sounds much like Stephen King's "Cat's Eye" from 1984, though that wasn't in b&w. Those cat scenes were at night though, so they kind of looked b&w. Spoiler: the cat turns out to be the good guy in that movie, protecting the child, not harming her.

      Ok. I’d appreciate help with one I KNOW I’ll never find! When I was four,& when my Mother was flitting around the house doing stuff that morning,an old b&w movie was on. There was a baby,napping in a bassinet,which was in a small, plant filled solarium. I couldn’t understand why the Mommi was nowhere around, & while I started to get nervous about that, this CAT came in,climbed into the bassinet, on top of the baby...put its mouth over the baby’s mouth & sucked the life out of the baby! I was so traumatized, I’ve hated *cats* ever since! I mean, except for our Bootsey,& Snowball,but everybody else! Yes, I have cat issues,& always blamed a movie that was probably shelved for life,for such a heinous offense! As I am totally drawn to old movies, & don’t at all know what this was/is called...I’d like to know so I can forever avoid it like the plague! Takers? Step up, & thanks!

      I remember seeing this movie on tv in the early 2000s. I think it was a kids movie or teen movie because I think it came out on Nickelodeon. Anyways from what remember there was a group of friends who were looking for some clues to solve this mystery in their town. They would find these notes in hidden places that gave them clues and they would go around asking certain people information. Like I remember there was even a scene where they meet a family that lived underground in the sewer. And I remember there was this girl who was following the group of friends and scaring with paranormal stuff. And at the end they end up in this empty carnival and they pull this magic light out of the eyes of one of the horses from the mary go round and they pointed it at the girl who was following them and she vanished while turning into this ghost thingy.

      Okay, here's a question for a horror film.

      It was set almost exclusively in an apartment, where a woman, who has (had) a mental breakdown and locks herself in has to face many horrors, starting with people knocking at her door.

      I think it was French, or Spanish, and I do believe to recall that she was accused of murder, or there was some other fucked up thing that has been happening in her life, hence causing them mental breakdown.

      She proceeds to install camera stuff and all that around her apartment, and I remember the bathroom playing a big role.

      I saw that about 10 years ago... I think. So it's not new.

      Most likely French, Spanish, lone woman with mental breakdown experiencing horrors while locking herself in her apartment, equipped with cameras etc.

      It was a gem ( at least in my memory ), and I'd love to show it to my fiancee, so please help.

      Cheers,

      Elric

      There's a movie I saw a few times when I was younger. Beginning of 2000s but I believe the movie is older than that. I think it starts with a car accident in the rain, at night, where the mother dies and the daughter survives. She's raised by her father after that. Only other thing I remember is a farm and the girl "mothering" a few chicken babies.

      Hi! :)

      So I don't remember very much of this movie, hopefully I can give enough clues.

      I wanna say the movie released in the late 90's and I'm sure it was a kids or teen movie. There was a boy who was sick or something because he was an introvert and would spy on the neighbors. I thought the title had something dealing with darkness maybe? And I also think it could have been a Disney or Nickelodeon movie? I can remember the houses were craftsman style and the neighbors house he was spying on was dark and had dead plants. The only other thing I believed happened in the movie is that he was able to befriend someone from that house and they went in the basement possibly and found a bunch of vintage stuff? I don't know if they were vintage movie props or vintage circus related stuff?

      I'm sorry if I was really vague I saw this when I was young and only saw it that the one time.

      Thank you!

      Hello everyone!

      so I've been doing research for my mom who saw a film she watched alone and liked so much, but I can't seem to figure out the title. She doesn't remember much.

      I don't think it's a recent movie, but maybe not too old. Pretty sure it's a 2000s movie.

      The story is about 3 women who reunite after years apart. They meet up at one of the three friends' secluded house and they seem to be having a great time and a lot of fun, they find the same empathy as in the past, they drink, eat dinner, laugh about past times together and so on. Towards the end of the movie the friend who's hosting the reunion suddenly changes tone and behavior, she brings up unpleasant memories and past arguments, and the atmosphere grows uncomfortable, at first the other two are confused, they think she's joking, and wonder why she's ruining their happy reunion, then all of a sudden the host grabs a rifle, points it at one friend and says something like "Remember that time you...?" (mentions something bad she did to her) and shoots her right in the chest. Obviously the other friend freaks out, she soon realizes her psycho "friend" holds a grudge against her for past facts and wants to kill her too. She desperately tries to talk sense into her and to defend herself, but in the end she gets killed too.

      Unfortunately I don't have any details concerning the soundtrack and stuff. One of the actresses could have been someone from Sex and the City's cast but I'm not sure about that. Thanks!

      Movie from the 90's, set in modern times.

      Wealthy family living in a castle, father is divorced and is taking care of his children (two or three). He meets a woman: she's a witch. The kids don't like her but the father is blinded by love and doesn't know her true identity.

      Two memorable scenes: In one scene, the kids are hiding from someone in a farm of some type, behind some straw; In another scene, the kids confront the witch in a cave, the witch shows her powers (blue powers, scary voice).

      I watched this movie in german but I am positive it was a dubbed version, the original one being in english.

      Rings any bells?

      I am re-posting this in hopes of getting a title, this is what I remember:

      I remember watching a movie in the '70's or could have been the early '80's with my dad, the movie was about a married man with a son, not sure if they were at home or on a business trip, but the father had an affair with the pool boy and the son caught them because the father forgot to pull the blinds in the room, which had a full floor to ceiling window facing the pool. I think the wife/mother suspected but didn't realize it was true until the son told her about it, I thought it might have been Rock Hudson playing the father but I could be wrong. that is as much as I know/remember.

      I've tried everything but no luck so far. Looking for the title of a romantic/thriller/drama made after 1970. Uses surreal music if I remember correctly. The plot is about a therapist who is treating a woman (can't remember her condition). The therapist falls in love and starts a relationship with the woman's sister, who it turns out is married to a prominent (Greek I think) gangster. There's a scene where they visit a lighthouse together and have a nice time. I remember the gangster character to be both physically and mentally abusive, and also impolite to waiters. There are a few scenes that take place in restaurants iirc. The woman's sister has a condition whereby she falls into a trance when she drink alcohol. This leads her to accidentally kill her husband. The last part I remember about the plot is the murder trial taking place, where the therapist's friend is representing her as an attorney. Thank you

      Fantasy film where the hero and another man have to put their hands in a tree stump or trunk. The other man is stung by a creature inside and immediately dies and the hero (obviously) does not, enabling him to be chosen for some task.

      I only saw the beginning of it, but does anyone know what this one might be? It was some old, obscure (in colour though, so maybe 80s? earlier?) artsy movie where three old women start going up some seemngly infinite stairs inside a building. I think they might have been trying to find/meet God or something? If I'm not remembering it wrong, the language wasn't English, and the movie was probably produced in some eastern European country.

      Dear Sirs and Madams,

      I am looking for a movie which I have seen a couple of years ago (at least 20, I think). I only remember the story, no names, and that it was likely an Japanese or Korean movie, or from that area. All actors were "japanese type" looking (for my unused western eyes, please take no offence).

      No big production. Mostly, if not all, two-way dialogues. No big crowds. No "Action".

      Set in modern times.

      The story begins with the Protagonist, a guy about 30 Years old, being told, that the Company he works for will be shut down. All employees stand in the Yard of the Company while this news is presented.

      After that, the guy starts walking. Basically thats´s all what the movie is about, a tranquil guy walking through the day, meeting different sorts of people. I don´t remember many of them, but once he met a member of the Yakuza, who was terminally ill with cancer and gives him all his money, a large sum. And later he meets a woman, who will get him off this money. And there is a scene towards the end of the movie, where he lies in a hole in the ground, looking at the stars. Seems about thinking of killing himself.

      I think on his whole journey the protagonist himself did not speak a single word, only listens, but after the scene with the hole in the ground he hurries home, back to his wife, and explains her what he had experienced this day and has to repeat it again and again, his wife asking him again and again, laughing. This merry dialogue is not shown, but from the off, while the camera only shows the outside of the house. Which is, how the movie ends.

      I would really appreciate, if anybody could tell me something about this movie. The director could be kind of popular.

      Thank you very much for your efforts.

      I remember the opening scene of a movie from the 1990s (late 1980s maybe?) where a woman enters a cab (in New-York maybe) and gives directions to the driver so he takes the route she wants.

      Control freak woman, maybe a business woman. The movie goes on, maybe an indie comedy or thriller...

      Then the closing scene is symmetric to the opening scene where the woman enters a cab, is about to give directions and then decides to let go.

      Any idea?

      Please help! I am trying to remember the title of a movie. I am almost 50 yrs old now and I watched this movie only once when I was a boy in the 1970's so I believe the movie was made in the 70's, possibly the late 60's.

      I'll tell you what I remember about it: The movie revolved around a troubled/delinquent boy. In one scene, he was given the Rorschach (Ink Blot) test by a doctor or psychiatrist. EVERY time the Dr. would show this boy an Inkblot and ask what it looked like to him, the boy would reply, "It looks like sh*t." That's all the boy would ever reply with.

      In the very end of the movie, for some reason, the boy commits suicide by hanging himself with (I believe) a bed sheet. He hung himself in either a reformatory school or in the hospital.

      That's all I remember. I'm sorry I don't know who any of the actors were in this movie. But I would like to see it again. Please help. Thanks!

      Slasher film probably from the 80s possibly later. Typical set up with teens or college students in an old house. Seems like it was a big house, and several kids. I think they had just arrived at the first of the movie, and it was night or night came soon. I remember the shower was on the first floor, because the shower scene has a guy in a mask (a la Jason???) peeking in window, scaring a girl who runs out of shower. But it's a joker in a mask trying to scare the girl, not the killer who hasn't shown up yet. Not a Friday the 13th although one of them did have a joker using a mask who gets killed by the real killer. I don't remember anything about the real killer.

      I'd really appreciate help with this; I've searched for many many hours over years! I think I originally found it on a feminist film list that no longer exists. (I've gone through every single film on many such lists.)

      I believe it's Scandinavian, set in olden times. An adolescent girl with brown hair is traveling through expansive wilds with her family... when they are suddenly shot at with arrows and a group of bandits attacks, killing all but the girl. The group's leader pulls back a dark hood and we see that she is a woman, with very blue eyes and very pale hair & eyebrows.

      The group takes the girl back alive to their camp, where we discover a younger, yellow-haired girl is being kept. The leader, who has seemed utterly cold-blooded until now, shows affection to the child, who rebuffs her. It's eventually made clear that the younger child was also kidnapped; the leader desperately wants a child who will love her. The purpose of taking the older girl seems to be to eventually bear another child, as the leader is infertile. Yet when some of the men in the group start to harass the older girl, the leader deals with them very harshly.

      The older girl eventually manages to escape, taking the younger girl with her and together taking refuge in the cottage of a peasant living far away. He tells them he knows of the woman who kidnapped them, who was once a pleasant village woman - who had a younger daughter and was pregnant again. The villagers disapproved of this, as she was unmarried, and additionally accused her of witchcraft. In the course of the subsequent "trial," her daughter was killed and she had a miscarriage.

      Back at camp, the leader is furious to discover that the two girls are missing, and sets out after them. She eventually tracks them to the cottage, where the peasant expresses sympathy for the hardship she's endured - but it's too little, too late. I forget exactly how it ends, but it's a fantastic movie, beautiful despite the intense violence.

      The cover art of the movie shows the pale-eyebrowed female leader drawing a bow aimed at the viewer (looking somewhat cleaner than she does in the course of the film, in which everyone is smeared with dirt). I would call this one of my favorite movies if only I knew what it was called. Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out!
