"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, I might need a little more information than that but I am pretty good at identifying movies. Lord knows I've seen my share of them and then some!

Helpful Hints for Your Movie Search

IMDb.com!!!

There are lots of ways to search on IMDb. You can search by title, actor, plots and keywords. The latter two are the best ways to search if you have that pesky unknown movie in your head. It may take some time and patience but you will find your movie most of the time using these search tools on IMDb.

Also, click on your search engine's "Search Tools" or "Advanced Search" button.  There you can filters to narrow down your search.

All In Good Fun

I know what you are thinking, "I'm on the Internet where all answers are just a mouse click away, so why in the hell do I need to ask Imadork about a movie?!?!"

You probably don't need to ask me, I just thought this would be a fun hub. Who knows though, maybe you are too lazy to search or don't know how to go about searching with the info you have. I don't care, I just enjoy movies and I find pleasure in helping people rid themselves of that frustrating feeling of the total lack of recall.

Go ahead, ask away! 


Update

This hub has been quite popular lately. Due to the increase in questions and my own personal problems of late, I have been unable to keep up. A huge "Thank you" to all readers that have picked up the slack and answered open questions! Most notably Patrol the Skies, who seems to be an even greater movie geek than yours truly! Go check out his YouTube page here:

Although I'm not as active as in the past I am still around, so keep posting your questions! If I don't get to it, chances are someone else will. Check back periodically to see if your questions was answered.


Be Nice

Scroll through other people's questions. If you know it, answer it. Just make sure you specify the name of the questioner to eliminate confusion.

If you post a question but then find the answer on your own later, please come back and tell me. That will save me from wasting time searching for your movie.


FYI (cuz I'm starting to develop a pet-peeve) - When posting a question, if you know about how old the movie is, please add that bit of info. Telling me that it came out when you were young does not help me when I don't know how old you are.

I used to watch this one with my friend when we were about 10.

Must be a 70s or early 80s flick about four (?) catholic girls (I think college) that go on a road trip together. Their car breaks down in the middle of no where (foresty place, river and a gas station that is closed) and they slowly one by one get killed off by some guy.

Help!

in 1989 i watched a film on the tv but can't remember its name or the actors in it.

the story is similiar to 'the stepfather' theme, but it is not any of them.

the story is set in america where a man kills his whole family on the 5th birthday of one of his children. fast forward to where he is remarried and has a new family. the 5th birthday is coming up of their child. an older man (which may be the wife's father or family friend) hears the story, on the radio, of the first family being killed on the childs 5th birthday and tries to phone a warning to the new wife.

a masked intruder comes into the house and after a chase the wife manages to kill him in the garage. she stops to pull of his mask to check if it is her husband.

if anyone has any idea of this film it would put me out of my misery as i can't get it out of my mind for some reason.

thanks

Wondering if anyone can help with this. I'm trying to find the title of an old black and white film, possibly British. All I know about it is that at the end, a girl succeeds in escaping from a house where she has been held by a woman. As she attempts to leave in a horse and cart, the woman who has been holding her runs out and grabs the reigns of the horse but she gets knocked to the ground and ends up being run over by the cart. I don't know any other details about the film, it's just this vague memory of the end of the film.

Looking for WWII movie - probably made in 50's or early 60's. Saw just part of movie but it was winter, Allies entered a family home. A woman and her daughter (I believe) were there, later Germans showed up as well. Believe there was a POW camp nearby as well.

Sorry, not much info to go on.


Briana5 12 days ago

The main character is a woman that films a vlog on her laptop and it goes viral because a giraffe that escaped from a zoo walked past the window. It's not animated it's real people.

Other scenes that I think I remember but I could be confusing with a different movie:

She starts going to an improv class.

Her friend signs her up to do stand up at an open mic in a small club.

She goes home for dinner and gets upset cause her parents keep comparing her to her sister.

I have not been able to look it up with any key words so you will probably have to have seen it to figure it out. And I really don't think there's any popular actors in it but there might have been some comedians I can't remember. Thanks for any help!

@Dandandaaaaannnnn

Flight of Dragons (1982) is what you are looking for. It came from a popular book at the time.

Perfect scene you chose for the hint. Thanks for that. This was fun.

When I read that "eating rock" line, .... it instantly triggered and old memory that took me back to when I was watching this on t.v..

The Hobbit and J.R.R. Tolkien books and calendars were still very hot on the racks back then and this dragon story was ridding on that same wave for fantasy.

This story takes a science minded man, and through his experiences in the story, explains how fantasy creatures like ..... flying fire dragons can be possible.

Thanks again for the memory trigger.

Here is a clip of that very scene with the rocks here:

Hey, I have one about a couple, presumably married, that goes off to a cabin in the woods. The guy has a scar from a bullet wound. One part that sticks out to me is the guy who lets them use his cabin gives them a generator, saying that it has a mind of its own. That man's daughter is picked up a guy who turns out to be from America's most wanted, and is presumably killed by her. He ends up at the couple's cabin, where eventually he beats the shit out of the husband and drops him off in the words, where he is attacked by wolves, but makes it out. Eventually he makes it back, but the wife tries to kill him but ends up falling off a balcony and breaking her back over a woodchopping block.

trying to think of the series and episode name and I cant find it on google. A girl sees when people close to her die. First she sees her grandma die and she kept repeating bye when it happened. I dont remember who died next but her mom and dad think shes killing family at this point. then her dad has an asthma attack and hes telling her to get away and the mom is trying to get her away. the next scene you see her mom telling her shes going to learn how to swim and her mom is filling the innertube with pebbles enough to weight it down where it will sink. the child is standing in front of a mirror and sees herself drowning and waves goodbye while saying bye and it cuts to the credits. I think this is an episode of the twilight zone but I dont remember which one I do remember it being in color so its at least one occurring in the 70s at the earliest

ok, this is really bugging me... this *memory* of a *mini-series* or *made for T.v* film comes back to haunt me from my child-hood... (NONE of my friends or family remember it and think i am going nuts)

The Silver Web!!! (Or any derviative thereof) (uk tv ***maybe others as well???*** in late 80s/early 90s? (google says no such thing exists O.o)

Plot???: This kid (boy) is really mysterious?? (or his family is)... school kid with like one of those public school uniforms (grey jumper etc)... only scenes i remember...: he is in a snowball fight with bullies? and he throws a snowball back and somehow there was a stone in it (magiced there by the boy)... another... he was in an old? house with an old lady and a lot of clutter?... he has powers somehow and it all revolves around this odd ***family heirloom***??? Which is a broach in the shape of a sliver spider and web... hence the reason i think its the name of the title

What is the name of the movie - the father was a asssassin for the mob but quit the business to raise his daughter when his wife died. He moved to another state and ran a garage. His daughter went off to college but would call him periodically. She called him and pretended she was at college but hung up quickly when she heard someone coming. She was doped out and had left college. The dad flew to her college state and found a friend that was in a picture he found in her room. The friend went with the dad to look for the daughter. A mob boss who for some reason wanted revenge had the daughter. At the end the guy went to a business owned by another mob boss and that "boss" said he would help but didn't want the other to know he was involved. The father gets the girl back after a shoot out. If I remember right the man seeking revenge was holding a needle to the daughters neck when the father shot him.

Hi, in the 90's I watched a subtitled film drama, a bit like Cinema Paradiso, on UK Channel 4 TV, I think it was French or Italian. The opening scene shows a little boy running from a house with high walls and a tall iron gate. Rather than opening the gate he squeezes between the bars to go out. At the end of the film an older female cousin who has been staying with them ( he has developed a childhood crush for her) is leaving and he runs out to say goodbye. He tries to squeeze between the bars but he is older and wider so he is unable to get out to wave goodbye. Film ends here. I would be very grateful if someone can put a name to this film. It was a very sweet film, very funny in parts and well acted, I would love to watch it again. Thanks

Looking for the name of a American movie I saw on TV decades ago, possibly from the 70s or 80s. The plot can be summarised as 'The Godfather' meets 'Tucker: The Man and His Dream': an elderly patriarch of a car making empire adopts a protege who learns the nice and not-so-nice ways of the business.

The movie starts with the wedding of the patriarch's son where the bride happens to catch the elderly father having sex with a maid after she offers to help him fix his tie. From there we meet the young, ambitious protege who may be a engineer or a test driver as he faces threats, espionage and even violence from rival car makers. He sleeps with one of the women in the family and eventually ends up seducing the youngest daughter who's barely out of school. The bride from the wedding ends up having an affair with elderly patriarch, revealing that she'd seen him with the maid. The son finds out and commits suicide near the end of the film.

Thanks in advance!

British film (I think) opens under a bridge, winter cold, man gives up his warm coat to young man who has just been kicked out of his house, man seemingly freezes to death but then wakes up with amnesia and the uncanny ability to touch people and help them find what they've lost. Every person connects him to another starting with a young boy on the streets who steals to survive and has stolen the wedding bracelet of an elderly Indian woman...it proceeds until he remembers he hid his firefighter father's keys when he was a child..which ultimately resulted in a young girl drowning, his parent's deaths, the firefighter who couldn't rescue the young girl going into a downward spiral, the little girl's parents estrangement, but when he remembers hiding the keys, time reverses and he makes a different decision about the keys. I didn't recognize any of the actors unfortunately. I don't think it is very old. Thanks soooo much for any help in identifying this movie.

This has the actress Milla Jovovich in them.

Hello. I'm actually looking for a TV series i watched when i was like 7-8

It was real life but had some animation in it.

Basic story line was this nerd who invented this video game, and i dont remember how but the characters in the game came out side of the game, (Both the good and evil characters) So now the nerd and his friend are trying to find a way to get them back in the game because their hurting real people. The friend of the nerd is the main character and a good looking high schooler who makes friends with both good video game characters (A male and female?) I dont remember much about the bad guys from the video game accept that one of them has tenticals? And also there is a real life bad guy to maybe the principle or a teacher of the school?

Much thanks ahead of time! Not knowing the name of this series has bugged me so so much over the last few years!


random_dude 4 weeks ago

Been willing to watch this movie for a while, but alas - no luck finding it. I was a kid when I wateched the movie (I believe they were several, so a franchise).

I believe it was made around the 1990-2001th and if memory serves me right it had apocalyptic vibe, possibly sci-fi to it (also a desert perhaps?) - the lead was female.

There were a lot of weapons in the movie too (she was a fighter).

Not sure, but I think she was also hunted.

I know this is not a lot of information - i have no idea about director, actors, name or year... just a general plot by memory.

I don't remember too much about it but I am trying to find out the name of a movie that was playing when I woke up one morning. I saw it in the last two to five years but I don't know the age of the movie. It appeared to be from the 2000s, possibly late 90s. There was a dark haired man with an accent (maybe British) who appeared to be holding people hostage in an office building. If memory serves, the dark haired guy kind of reminded me of a cross between Peter Gallagher and Ian Brown or Julian Sands. I seem to recall a woman getting free from being tied up and going down a hallway finding dead coworkers and running from dark haired guy. In the end the dark haired guy ended up not being the murderer. The movie was overall creepy and kind of gory. Anybody have any ideas?

Hey everyone. I can't remember the name of this movie I saw in the late 80s to early 90s. It was made for tv, I believe. It was about a either a man or a woman that wanted to get rid of their spouse. They poisoned them with salmonella or maybe botulism. Then they buried their spouse in the yard. But the spouse wasn't dead and dug their way out. They then "haunted" the other one until they finally killed them I believe. Sorry for the scanty details... Any help would be awesome. It was probably a USA production. Thanks!

OK, another doozie for me! What I remember is that a pretty confident guy meets a very wealthy guy by happenstance, but can't remember why. They talk about the rich guys problems and the guys is blunt with him and it intrigues the rich guy, and he hands him a card and offers the guy a job. The guy is kind of cocky and says something like "I don't need a job". Shortly after that, his life changes and he loses his job, girl, house, etc., and has to show up to the rich guy's estate for a job and is hired as a limo driver I think. He tells him to move into the servant's house. He moves in and it is more like an apartment with two rooms and a common area. His roommate is a black guy that is pretty funny and they become friends pretty quickly and this guy, (main character) says he won't be there long. The black guy tells him he took the last driver's job. He thought the last driver died, but he got fired and was mad about it and very big and mean. The black guy said he hoped the guy didn't run into him, which he does later in the movie. His life finally turns around in the movie. Anyway, that is pretty much what I remember about the movie. I thought it might be Map to the Stars, but it really doesn't fit. I think it was a newer movie, but for the life of me, cannot seem to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks and have a great weekend.

Hi everyone :) The movie I'm trying to figure out was I think (?) a made for tv movie from around 15 years ago? It must've been sci-fi, because the only plot point I remember is that in a parallel word no one was fat. And when someone from "our" world wound up there (I think with some friends) they're walking down the street and people from the parallel universe are looking at the fat guy (who wasn't even very fat, honestly) like as if he should be ashamed to out in public, or he should stay at home or be in jail or something. Any ideas?

You're welcome! I just happened to watch that movie last week and thought

It might be a possibility. Glad I could help.

Hello.

My girlfriend and I saw a thriller at home on dvd in 2005-2010.

I remember a female police officer trying to catch a serial killer.

I have two moments from the movie in my mind.

She finds one of her coleuges strapped to a chair and if they don't do something in time he will get acid over his body. I think the acid was green.

The second thing I remember is that I think it ends on a bridge where the female officer is crying.

I don't think it has a happy ending.

That was it! Thanks you so very much! I would have never guessed that movie because I could not think of one character in that movie, which is crazy because there were actually some pretty popular actors in there. Wow, what a throwback to my teenage years. I have wanted that 911 Targa ever since then and still haven't gotten one and they sure haven't gotten any cheaper!

Thanks again for the peace of mind and rest from my searching! LOL

I think this movie was released within the last few years, I think it was in English but set in France. A man meets a woman and they date but later he finds out she has a husband. She wants him to meet her husband and assures him that it is OK in her culture for a woman to date other men… I cannot remember at all what the movie is!

Try "High School USA"(1983) with M. J. Fox.

You can see one of the shots of the Porsche at about 1:06.08....

No, that's not it Karyn Lee,

I've looked through that movie and it doesn't fit. This is more of the rich ivy league snooty prep guy with a Porsche and the superficial relationship with the hot girl, until she meets the new guy in the film that doesn't really belong. The rich guy is showing off and reminding the guy that he is outleagued and outclassed, and does not belong at this level because he is intimidated and worried that he will take his girl. I know, kind of a typical underdog story with upper and lower class storylines. This is what is making it so difficult for me. That is why the blue or silver (not sure of color, but I think it is one of these) Porsche Targa with the open tops or maybe a convertible pulling up in front of the school or dorm is so important. It is the only real thing I can remember that might help distinguish this movie from the many others that are similar. It might be one of the Revenge of the Nerds movies, and I have them set to record on my DVR this week and if it is, I will post it on here to answer this question for anyone else who might be looking for this movie. Thanks again for everyone's help! Have a great weekend!

This has that crying thing you mentioned. It's so odd a thing. I am guessing this is the movie you were searching for. I have never seen it so I can't say for sure.

Not sure if this is the scene you were looking for.

A part of this song was sung in the 2014 film Wild by child actor Evan O'Toole during a scene with Reese Witherspoon.

What is the movie( or is it a tv show) where a woman meets a little boy and an old lady on a path in the forest. Thay have a mule ( or is it a donkey) and the little boys asks the stranger if she'd like to hear him sing a song. He sings Red River Valley and they part ways.

OK, I've tried to read as many posts on here as I can and I cannot find my movie so here goes and sorry if it has already been answered but I have been looking for this movie for weeks now. All that I can remember is that I believe it was in the 80's but maybe early 90's and it was a rich snobby prep school type movie where the rich dude drove a silver or light blue (I think) Porsche 911 Targa and pulled up in front of a school. Cannot remember if it was high school or college. He was being mean to a poor lower class guy that was after his girl. He was wearing the typical preppy clothes and had the normal posse of preppy friends. I thought it was something like Class or Oxford Blues, but can't seem to find this scene anywhere, but it is similar to these movies. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks.

This is an old-ish french movie I just can't get the name of again.

It encompasses the life of this man, his dad is a commercial pilot and dies flying cargo over a warzone or something like that, at a certain beginning portion of the film the father plays a song for the kid (protagonist) that becomes the movie's main theme I think. The boy falls in love with his (sister/stepsister (?)) and they make up a scheme to stay home together for like 2 weeks. I think the girl liked setting shit on fire now that I remember. There was also a fat kid the girl gets infatuated with completely ruining the poor boys heart. (this kind of vibe is repeated through the movie too) The movie ends with the guy escaping an asylum for old people with a gun (this was kinda at the middle, actually) and then he goes replace this dude that has a hit on him, he dies getting shot in the chest while standing in his living room clutching a rose and holding some candy in his mouth. He gets cremated and he's happy as the movie's theme plays and the ashes get scattered from a plane.

GOD I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME

@Cornetta ~ There is another crazy hamburger movie that ends with singing: Hamburger: The Motion Picture (1986).

A loser type overweight dude has a job as a security guard in a mall but is promptly fired when security cameras catch him masturbating on the job, inside a lingere shop dressing room. He is fired and returns home to find his wife in bed with a dude that she picked up in a bar. He believes she is being raped and I can't remember if he ends up killing his wife, her lover or both but he ends up working in a mysterious motel that turns out to be a second chance scenario for folks to right a serious wrong that they may have committed in their life. I think at the end, I seem to remember the "Keeper" of the motel telling him, "you chose well". I can't be sure about that, though...

Hello,

I did not see this entire movie so it will be hard for me to explain and harder for you to find it I presume. Anyway, at the end of this film, the good youngsters are in a hut in the middle of nowhere (in a US desert I think). They are there connected to a (I think) drug trafficking/mafia issue. There happens a shootout, bad guys die (I think one of them was particularly vicious). One of the good youngsters is of African-American descent with funny hair, he keeps the money and drives home (I think with some of his friends alive, or maybe alone). On the way home he sees the spirit of a Native American tribe chief waving to him as a good luck gesture for he was somehow protecting him (I think). So, can anyone name this movie please? Thank you very much in advance :)

Don't know if this is the movie you were speaking about, but it is about a burger joint that is trying to out do an other. Good luck.
