Movie Lover At Your Service

"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!

I'm a Movie Geek!

With a library of at least a thousand movies and an incessant urge to perpetually expand my collection to infinite proportions, I am a certified movie geek!

So be my guest, utilize my useless knowledge and ask away. If I do not know the answer off the top of my head I will do my best to find the answer for you (or someone else might beat me to it by answering in the comments section ).

Just type your question in the comment box at the bottom of this page (NOT in the "Ask a Question" box on the right-hand side of page ). Sorry if it takes awhile for me to answer. I am not on the net 24/7. Your question could be answered in mere minutes or it may take a few days. Bookmark this page and keeping checking back.


Please do not use the "Ask a Question" box on the right-hand side of this page!!! That is for a different function and not for this specific hub.


Helpful Hints for Your Movie Search!!!

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! 


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.

Old Black & White movie, it felt like a foreign movie, possibly Italian? I saw it on the old 5 KTLA channel back in the 70's. The movie could have been from the 50's? This is a young man coming of age story. He is in a remote village waiting for his fathers return. A very young woman arrives one day and he is informed that she is his fathers bride that he has sent home. The young man treats her roughly at first, making her work very hard around the house and fields. Later he realizes that he has fallen in love with her. In one scene, the young man is seduced by a known "loose woman" that he does chores for sometimes. He leaves the village before his father returns. They can't act on the feelings they might have for each other. And that is where the movie ends. I think she barley knows her husband and has feelings for the son also but she stays distant from the young man and stays in control of herself. She may even be pregnant when she arrives, but I'm not sure?

I have posted this movie before but with no response to the post. Can anyone think of any movie that might be this one?

Otherwise, there will be so many questions and answers in the meantime that others are pushed below that "point of no return". Few people can access "See ... more comments".

Looking for an old black and white movie that I only saw a little bit of but would like to find to see the whole thing. A rather arrogant husband was verbally abusive to his wife. There was another man in that scene. There was a large staircase. At the top of the staircase was a room the husband kept locked...maybe a study or laboratory. The next part I remember is that she is awaken from sleep...maybe an explosion sound...she goes in the hall and sees the locked door ajar and goes in and there's a hole in the floor of the room. Not much to go on, but greatly appreciate any help!!!

Guessing from the 80s, there was a flashing light that somehow made the person doing the "flashing" invisible to the person the light was flashed at. Then the "invisible" person was killing them. There was a model, I think, thrown off a balcony in a high rise. In another part of the movie, an ad agency would track the eye movements of persons watching commercials so they could do product placement where they knew the viewer was looking.

The movie I am looking for is a foreign movie from the 80s or 90s. Its German or Swedish, or northern European at least I think.

The plot is essentially about a man who gets laid off or fired from his corporate office job but doesn't tell his family. So every day he says goodbye to his wife and goes off and pretends to be working. He hangs out in office buildings like he works there, gets shooed off by various security guards and such, drives around town all day, then goes home like he is coming home after a day at work. Ultimately I believe he tells all to his family.

@Liz The Man from Snowy River (1982) ?

Liz 15 hours ago

Looking for a movie I watched when I was 12, it came out in the late 80s to mid-90s as best I can figure, from the romance/western genre...set in Australia I think, everyone had a British accent; about a young woman whose father owned a large ranch and a herd of horses worth a lot of money, somehow finances went wrong and they ended up in debt, the only hope was to herd the horses a great distance to a place where they could make a lot of money off selling them to pay off their debt in order to keep their land. Problem is, the dad dies before he can herd them, and most the hands quit when they find out they won't get paid for work they've already done so the young woman has to leave boarding school and herd them herself with the help of a love interest. A jealous man who wanted to be her love interest tries to sabotage them and steal the was never a highly advertised film, I don't think. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi there. I'm looking for a war movie that I saw many years ago. I remember a scene having something to do with a bridge, people escaping, an avalanche, an older woman leaving the group she's with (the people trying to get away from someone, soldiers, maybe German, I think) because she can't go as fast as the others and is putting the whole group at rist; so she goes off in the night to die in the snow, in order to save the others. The most memorable part was where these two men are in a room of some sort, seems like a cabin, and the one with the gun is the "bad guy" - the other guy (0ne of the good group) is telling the bad guy that he's completely exhausted and can't even hold up the gun he's holding - or something like that - and the "German" soldier (the guy with the gun) falls over. He was in the avalanche, and somehow he survived it. That's all I remember. I do think there was another woman in the group, besides the older one who went off to die. It was a really intense movie, and it just seems like it was a group of people trying to get away from German soldiers, in the mountains, maybe the Alps, maybe set in Siberia... I don't know. Any ideas what this movie could be?

There was an old black and white movie maybe 1940-1950's (I was probably about 10 when I saw it in about 1968). It was about a young girl (10-14 years old) that would pray to the Virgin Mary for everyone in neighbor because her prayers would be answered.

Eric 22 hours ago

The film I am looking for was in black and white and I believe was a British film (not sure), at least I think the actors were British, anyway... The main character wanted to kill someone, so in order to establish an alibi he confessed to every murder that happened around the city for weeks before he killed his victim. When his victim was discovered he went to the police to confess to this murder also but now he had the "boy who cried wolf" reputation with the police so they sent him away and told him never to come back. Alibi complete! However, his fiancee' has a lot of circumstantial evidence pointing to her and she is accused of the murder. Now how is he going to save her since no one will believe him?

What is this movie?

The strained relationship between the girl and her father is eventually repaired with the return of Thomasina and the aid of a beautiful and mysterious "witch" who seems to have powers to revive and heal animals.

Hope its what your looking for.

Does anyone know the name of this movie?

- Made in the 1990s

- Opening scene involves Christmas shopping

- Then the main family sings "C-I-N, N-A-T-I, Ohio, USA" during a snowstorm and they are transferred to a strange place

- The strange place includes a fence with brown monsters, which are obviously people in costumes

- Most of the movie is set in this strange, small world where the main characters try to figure out where they are and how to get back to their regular world

I know that's not a lot, but any help is greatly appreciated!

American (?) horror movie from maybe late 70s/very early 80s? I have only ever seen one scene on a review programme, and it's always bugged me what the movie was.

Guy and girl are trapped in a bedroom while something/someone is pounding at the door. They've wedged a chair under the handle to keep the door closed, but the thing just starts breaking the door down. The guy helps the girl escape out the window and onto the roof, but just then the thing smashes through the door and grabs the guy before he can get out.

All suggestions gratefully received. :)

Not a horror, mystery etc..maybe romance. in neighborhood fear a witch is living in nearby woods. When family dog goes missing kids decide it must b the woman in the woods so they bravely observe her close to her house. They see her carrying all different kinds of animals to her barn. Fearing the worst a boy convinces his father to confront her and get his dog back from the 'witch'. Father goes to her house and learns shes a beautiful, kind animal loving woman who helps sick and injured animals...they fall in love :-).

Hi. I watched this movie about 25 years ago, and what I remember is that it is a family of four (or five) who lived in a big house. One day, when they want to get out of the house, they found that the entrance has become a fixed wall. All exits including windows have been blocked by these concrete walls, and no amount of human effort or even with tools or dynamite could tear down the walls.

In the end, the whole family, exhausted and worn out, all laid down in their beds staring at the ceiling. The ending turns out to be a girl (probably alien) playing with a doll house that showed her laying down figurines on a miniature bed that depicted the entire family.

Please help, thanks!

I watched this movie (on TV, probably on PBS) late at night in the late 80’s or early 90’s.

The protagonists were a young girl and boy, possibly siblings.

The setting was either a post-apocalyptic dystopia or purgatory. There were no “gadgets” to speak of…the setting could have almost been medieval.

The main conflict and quest goal was to reach heavenevolve.

There were no special effects, but the costumes and props seemed elaborate. The costumes remind me of the “Blitz Kids” from the Bowie music video “Ashes to Ashes”

The lighting in the film was very dark.

There was one scene in a vast desert where the protagonists try to avoid a passing group wearing robes.

There seemed to be a lot of philosophical dialogue about life, death, the after-life and even evolution.

It might have been a subtitled foreign film, but wasn’t a campy 80’s sci-fi production like “Solarbabies.” It felt more like an art film.

The final act has one of the leads reunited with a character in Heaven, and a secret is revealed that there had been purposeful manipulation of the events of the character’s life. The final scene takes place near a fountain with lots of greenery.

Trying to find the name of a film I watched when I was younger. It had 3 or maybe 4 guys in it their friend had died they were at his funeral at the start. The film included flash backs to when they were younger of the group of guys I with one of the guys who was alot more wimpy than the others it showed them on their bikes when they were younger and the wimpy one trying to do all the stuff the others could but falling off. There was some sort of treasure map/map of a plane crash that they had been obsessed with since they were younger. After the funeral they decide to look for the plane and its something like the plane disappeared and has never been found and theres money on it and they find it and the old pilot from the plane is there. Any ideas what the film was? I cant remember any names fRom it

This film was filmed in late 70s or early. 80s. It's about a group of people having to cross a dangerous, unknown city in America, desperate for dawn to come so they can be safe again. They came across various vagrants, robbers, etc....... Anyone know the name of this film? I have a feeling it had the word "City" or "night in the title...

It's driving me crazy!

All I remember is this guy walking into a courtroom and then people start chanting/singing "G-u-i-l-t-y, guilty" . I'm pretty sure he's fantasizing this mentally too.

Movie is probably late 80's mid 90's.

*crossing my fingers* There was a movie that was produced between 1970-1980's where a girl moves in to a families ranch in a small town. The daughter of the family feels like there is something weird with the anti social girl and the daughter is really into horses, she has a horse and the horse goes nuts whenever he sees the weird girl. The daughter later finds out that this girl is actually a witch and she does witch craft on her and her family. The girls boyfriend starts falling in love with the witch (its a spell) and the witch starts flirting with the daughters dad eventually trying to kill his wife and daughter so she can take over. I don't know if anyone remembers it but I've tried looking up all the horror movies from this era and the witch movies and still cant find it! Also another part the daughter makes this pink dress that she wants to wear to a school dance but the witch ends up casting a spell on her so the daughter gives her the dress to wear and she ends up taking the daughters boyfriend etc etc. Please for the love of god help!

I watched a movie as child in the late 80's early 90's and all I remember is people at a party eating food, they bite into it and find glass and they all start choking and dying. I think it's a serial killer thriller kind of movie and it's haunted me for years! If anyone has the faintest idea of what I'm talking about I'll appreciate it!

"The Proposal"(2009)

So there was a movie I watched years ago and I've had urge to watch again but I don't remember the movie. I don't remember much of the movie but there's a girl and guy, I think they might have been co-workers (not sure) but the girl and guy don't like each other and later on in the movie they some deal and go visit the guy's family, they pretend to be a couple even though they hate each others guts. They visit the guy's family and the girl questions him about being rich but he says that his parents are rich, not himself and it turns out they fall for each other because of the things the family say to each other. The family's house is like near a pier or a lake house. I think they visit the family because his brother is getting married and he needed a date. I don't remember much but thank you. Hope you can help me figure out the movie I'm talking about.

There was a movie some thirty or forty years ago on TV that I was only able to see the very ending. I know this is not much of a clue, but it's all I can remember. There were two young boy,or maybe they were brothers, who were debating on going into the attic of their house. At the very end, one of them went and experienced an epiphany. Then he called to the other to join him. The ending was portraying that the two had transcended into another dimension. It was either a metaphysical or spiritual kind of ending.
