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, I think what you’re looking for is an episode of

      Alfred Hitchcock Presents, titled, “Never Again”, Season 1, Episode 30... “Karen Stewart has a serious drinking problem. One day, her boyfriend Jeff urges her to come to an important cocktail party and she reluctantly agrees. At the party Karen drinks heavily and, to Jeff's embarrassment, she goes to a bar with another man. Jeff tracks her down and urges her to come with him. She waves him aside and promptly passes out...”

      Constant reposts are not necessary. Regulars will scroll down through new posts as they come in. Newcomers will read what they want to read. Anyone with information on a missing movie title will offer it. It's what we're here for. Flooding the feed with the same requests over and over just makes people want to stop reading new posts. None of us are miracle workers. (Unless we've got some nurses out there reading this, then hats off to you.) And none of us have all the answers. Please have patience. If we can help, we will. But you have to give it time and give others a chance to make requests as well. I, for one, KNOW I've seen a movie described recently but don't have the title yet, but I am digging around on a daily basis trying to find it. Be patient.

      Thank you.

      reposting these because one i enver got a reply to and

      RickA2 was wrong on the heist movie (sorry - deff late 80s/mid 90s etc)

      StealthNinjalol

      5 days ago

      a made for tv film (in the UK in the late 80s/early 90s) cant remember much at all apart from this

      Its color... there was a boy (older than 12) walking and skipping through the woods? late at night... singing something which i remember as *pan, pan the piper's son... something something... can't catch me... something something*

      I think its the lead on of that welsh mini drama about the last druid? (film was in english)

      There was some kind of boparding school/prison near the boy and as he walks/skips along a white staute of Pan (or Pan himself) appears any help would be awesome - but i worry its false memory and does not exist, cant find any reference anywhere

      **and the heist one**

      its a mid/late 90s films? American... comedy... 2 thieves with (i think) a red confertable steal a load of cash from a bank or something and hide it in a school or convent?

      they go back for the cash some time later (a few years?) and there is this woman teacher or nun (but she is not as she appears?)

      I think the actress has a name similar to *Robin Towney* as her actual name (not character name) (maybe why i cant find it because wrong name) and i *think* one of the thieves is Stephen Baldwin??? (still can't find anything like this listed under him though)

      It is NOT bandits with Bruce Willis (i sware, but could be wrong)... one of the theives (stephen baldwin character i think - or both) fall in love with the fake teacher/nun... kidnap her and tries to con her throughout the movie... the final scene is them returning to the school/convent (all three now *best friends for life* kind of attitude...)

      As the theives drive off into the distance (leaving her behind?) the final scene is of her picking up the black duffel bagk with all or most of the cash with a sly smirk on her face?

      Nikki i thought it was Robin Tunney - but nothing familiar in her IMDB - also this is NOT Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

      Your movie sounds a little like “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot” though not completely. “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot” starred Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges with Catherine Bach (Melody?) in a bit role and came out in the mid-‘70s.

      1950s or 1960s. English, I think. A well brought up and fairly innocent girl finds herself rescued (i vaguely remember shipwreck, but not sure) by a rough but kind man and they survive and learn to respect each other, forming a close bond. They make it back to civilisation where she is taken back by family or protectors and they are suspicious of the man and charge him with molesting her. There is a very powerful courtroom scene (the young actress is amazing) where her words are manipulated by the lawyers and make her doubt herself and what actually did happen and she becomes very distressed at this. She looks across the courtroom several times to try and portray her distress to her friend, and one gets the sense that he knows what is happening and forgives her. He is found guilty.

      Help! I’ve been trying to figure out this movie for 15 years. I saw one scene, reminds me of Micheal Jacksons Thriller Music Video. A young black guy, similar to Prince and Micheal Jackson, looks into a window or basement window to see a group of people having dinner. I don’t know what he sees’s because I can’t remember, I know it’s something scary because he runs away and they saw him looking in the window. It’s like vampires, and werewolves, etc

      That’s all I got, I think it’s a 80s or 90s horror movie.

      Im trying to think of the name of a movie. I saw it as a kid and pretty much all i can remember is there is this little girl who is homeless, living in a trainyard/on a train. There is a rich boy who meets her and invites her to come play at his house. In his basement there is a huge train set that him and the girl play with. At one point in the movie they are in the trainyard and a group of boys comes up to them and one pulls out what looks like a knife but its really a comb.

      A very old film, black and white, 1930s? I remember an old man and a young child, standing by an old tree. It was obviously a movie set, I think the background was a painted picture. Time had frozen, so no one could age/die. I saw this film on a rainy weekend when I was a young kid, so around 35 years ago, and for some reason that scene’s always stuck with me, and that’s all I remember!

      I watched a bit off it way back and the story intrigued me but I can't find it anywhere and I don't know the name

      So basically what I remember it's about a guy who remembers his past with his friend who had silver hair and at a point of the movie a girl comes up to them while they are playing near a river and for some fucked up reason the silver haired boy decides to slashes her hand with a knife or box cutter ( I can't remember) then drags her away. The next scene it the boy and his friend being interrogated by the police and my memorie stops there.

The actress was playing a teenage girl, she had a shorter darker hair, white. The show was on probably between 5-10 years ago. I would imagine she'd be in mid-late 20's now. I remember vaugely she might have been on a televised dancing show or music video. Any help would be appreciated.

      I watched this movie when i was little, like 6 or 7 maybe 8, and i cant for the life of me remember much of the movie.

      I know that the plot had something to do with a group of woman (in a different time or place) that would be attacked by these demon dogs or hell hounds and the men were supposed to keep them safe. Well as time went by the men didnt keep the women safe anymore and they started dying off cause they were being attacked. One of these women found this guy (I think he was one of the only men left that could see the black dog thing) and begged him for help to keep her safe. I believe it could only come out at night and it couldnt go inside the house.

      In the beginning of the movie it tells you about these creatures and women in a cartoon drawing way, then it moves onto the main lead character helping his sister, cousin, or sister in law remove a tarantula from their house cause she was freaking out about it.

      I had to have been made in the 1990s or 2000s because the movie itself looked like it was made fairly recent when i watched it. I cant remember any names, or music. I cant place a face either and i keep looking and looking but still cant find it

      At the end she crawls through a dark tunnel and ends up reborn as a baby. Any ideas??? I don't know how old it is, and I'm pretty sure we watched it on TV.

He views women as objects until he meets this one women. After they get to know each other, they leave the safehouse. She shows him where she lives. Towards the end of the film, they return to where he came from and one of them gets shot.

      You might be thinking of “The Wasp Woman.” It’s an old B&W horror movie that kind of fits your description.

      The movie you are looking for is “The Great Santini.” It came out in the late ‘70s and starred Robert Duvall and Blythe Danner. Stan Shaw was the black man you remember and David Keith was the bully.

      I think you might be looking for “A Kiss Before Dying.” It’s been done at least twice—once in the late ‘50s with Robert Wagner and again in the early ‘90s with, I believe, Matt Dillon.

      @Janet Planet2...”Maybe I’ll Come Home In The Spring.” This came out in the late ‘60s as an ABC Movie of the Week and also about the same time as “Go Ask Alice” premiered. It starred a young Sally Field. In the movie, it’s Sally Field’s character’s sister who is giving their parents trouble (e.g., drugs, boys) and ends up cutting her long hair very short.

      A black and white film from about the 1950s. A man turns up after the war, claiming to be the brother (?) of a woman living on a Mediterranean /Greek (?) island. Despite the woman's protestations that he is not her brother, he continues to do and know all the things that her brother did, including being able to drive round the island in a record time. The outcome of the story is that the woman says he CANNOT be her brother, because she killed him, and it turns out that the man was actually a British policeman tasked with getting a confession from her.

      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 famous scene from a horror movie where a guy watches tv, actually he is flipping channels, and he doesn't notice that there is a message in the single shots. Together they comprise a sentence like "the end of the world is nearing" or so, it's a prophecy of what's going to happen. I never saw the whole movie, so no idea what else is happening, but I know the scene is famous.

      I keep thinking of this very wierd film I saw a few times as a kid on an HBO or Cinemax type channel. I think we still had box sets on top of the TV. What I remember: (1) Two guys who are hurt and driving through a remote area are rescued by a woman. She teaches them how to shoot guns so that they are perfect shots. Then they leave. This is pretty much the whole film plot. (2) There's a few scenes where a guy eats a dog treat, like a milk bone. I think there's one scene where the guy eats a bowl of cereal and take a bite out of a milk bone every few spoonfulls. That was my favorite scene. (3) The dog-treat eating guy is called something like "Milk Bone" or "Bone" or "Dog Treat" or something like that. In one scene the woman asks why. The guy who doesn't eat milk bones tells a story about how they dared the other guy to eat one, and he never stopped. So they gave him that name. (4) The girl had blond hair, shoulder length. (5) There's a scene wehre they shoot cans and bottles on a fence. That's all I remember. :)

      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.

      This movie was likely a TV movie in the 90s in which a detective is investigating a disappearance and ends up finding the dead body in a wall of the house where the victim lived (I think). I sort of remember that the body was found in the wall of the second floor hallway. I don’t remember anything else and I’ve been trying to find this movie for a long time. For some reason, the memory of watching it is burned in my brain but I can’t for the life of me remember what it is. Help?

      P.S. it’s not Stir of Echoes.

The woman is a famous actress, but I can't remember who. She has to share a bed with the son who comes on to her. Finally, she ends up letting him and the look on her face is hilarious. She has this guilt. The movie is set somewhere in the south. The movie is from the late 90's to early 2000's?

All I know is that I remember a guy being bald and trying some new thing to grow his hair. One scene had him cutting his hair and the hair screamed! Tiny screaming hairs! It was hilarious and terrifying at the same time. My husband also remembered but can't place it either. Please help solve this very long search mystery for us.

      A few years ago I watched a thriller series about a man who killed a Gypsy fortune teller by accidentally hitting her with his car. Next, a gypsy king pays him a visit and says that he'll have to redeem for causing this death - he has to save some people (12 people I think) from death and he's going to have visions/dreams with clues. The man must put the clues together and find the person in dead peril and save him/her, otherwise someone from his family (child, wife) will die. The visions drive the man half crazy and make him sleepless but he must keep going until he repays for the life of the Gypsy he had taken. Each episode is about a different person in need of save. Really good, supernatural thrilling series, can't remember the title... Anybody help? Thanks X

      Hello, I'm trying to find out the title of a movie from the mid to late 80's. Probably released sometime between 1986-1989 is my best guess. It should NOT be a horror movie. Believe it must be Rated-R. I'm thinking it was probably a thriller or a drama, maybe a cop movie, but it could also be a comedy. There was a scene in which a woman vomits loudly and violently for at least 5 seconds. Then I remember hearing sirens after that, like the police or ambulance. All I can remember is hearing 5-10 seconds of this woman puking violently and then sirens. Please help me find out what this movie is. I've searched and searched using Google but I just can't find it with such little info. Thank you.

They play a game where they write down their darkest secret, mix them up and read them out loud. Over the course of the movie, the characters appear to die, but it turns out they faked their deaths as a joke. However, turns out the main guy's fiancé is a psycho and she murders all of them. Her secret was that she wanted to sleep with a sibling... turns out she's actually related the fiancé's sister and he doesn't find out until after they sleep together! Super weird and it's bugging me that I still remember the plot but not the name... thanks for reading!
