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.

Does anyone recall a movie scene from a comedey not older than 90s where a grandma has a stroke or heart attack from someone I think a kid showing here something that scares her or freaked her out and then the scene switches to siren noises and either it goes to a funeral or hospital room ???

Alex 12 hours ago

This one's a bit tricky for me. I believe it's a fairly old movie, but I'm not positive.

The scenes I remember vividly are a teacher repeatedly smashing a student's head against a wall, and then that student walking out of school and falling down a batch of stairs. Others students see this and come to aid.

Any help would be appreciated. Any ideas?

"Short Cuts"(1993)


Polly 33 hours ago

This film was ( I think) subtitled. At the end, everyone came out of their house due to a crash and that's when we realise that they all live in the same street.

Maybe in the same film - woman orders a birthday cake, never collects it because her son died, but the baker targets her for harrassment not knowing the reason she never picked the cake up. She finally realises she forgot and goes to pay for the cake, explaining that her son died ...baker feels bad.

I've been trying to remember this film (or films?) for years!!

I saw a movie in the late 70s or early 80s and I want to say it was black and white, so it may be even older than that. It was about a boy whose mother ran an all girls' school and she wouldn't let him date any of them because they weren't good enough for him. Well, he started killing the girls one by one to harvest their best part so he could create the perfect girlfriend (ala Frankenstein). Does anyone know what this movie was called?

So this is a toughie i guess, and the end of the film the goodie and the baddie go up onto a crane near a dock then the baddie has a bomb that will go off if he lets go for more than 10 seconds, he throws it off towards the water but the goodie jumps for it and catches it right before ot hits the water. When the good guys gets out of the water he selotapes the pressure switch and the bad guy calls him from a bus hes getting on but then gets mugged for his watch and stuff then the film finishes. Bugging the hell out of me as the guy had no time to get down the crane and walk a while away for a bus. Didnt make sense to me but just trying to remember the film.

I can't remember the name of the movie, it's been a long time since Ive seen it aired on TV. A woman kidnaps another woman who has a boyfriend that the kidnapper wants. So she kidnaps her and puts her in a basement while she tortures her and tried to get her boyfriend, while the boyfriend misses his girlfriend and thinks she has left. Eventually the kidnapper and boyfriend hook up because he thinks his girlfriends left and isn't coming back, the kidnapper acts all innocent but she's really evil. The woman kidnapper cuts the other girls private parts with a knife and it's horrific. Anyway, in the end the boyfriend somehow finds his girlfriend in the basement she was being held and he carries her outside in his arms because she can't walk from all of the torture.

Turns out they are actually clones of real people living in the real world and once they reach a ceratin health level they are placed in cold storage to be used for body parts by the real person thy were cloned from. Sound familiar? Has been bugging a few of us for a while now. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank You in advance.

Looking for the name of a movie from the '80s that was about a family killed by large scale Marijuana famers in either Oregon or California (fiction) The Bother of the dead man comes and takes revenge. The main actor looked like Billy Drago but it was not him and I can not even remember the name of the actor to look it up that way. I think there was also a motorbike chase scene as well but that is about all I can remember.

Whats the name of this movie


drivingmecrazy 4 days ago

I've been looking for this movie for some time now and I can't find it. I only remember it vaguely. It came out a few years back; it's a thriller or horror movie. It's about a woman and her boyfriend. She takes him home for some holiday to meet her parents. She tells him something along the lines of you'll know if a couple will work out if they can make it through one full year of holidays. So her and her crazy family make each day a new holiday like Christmas and then the very next day is Mother's Day and they have these fake kids. She ties him up so he can't run away.

Any ideas?

Hi all. Trying to remember the name of an independent film from the mid 2000s that I saw about a year ago on Starz Cinema channel. Basically it was either a Korean or Japanese war movie involving two brothers who were on opposite sides of the battle and one brother was looking for the other and towards the end finally found him. It was an excellent film and there was a lot of violence. I think the title might be in both English and Korean or Japanese. I know it had English subtitles and I remember the very last scene was the brother at his other brothers grave thanking him for saving his life. Thanks

Hello, I really need your help! I was watching a movie in 2011-12 in the cinema and it was about a boy who has ability to cause death when he is scared or bullied or smthg like that, he occasionally killed parents and got into another place to live, similar to school or prison... I don't remember much but after a fire there he runs away into the woods and stays living there. Around his house everything is dead... And by the same time there is a hospital where a girl is diagnosed with cancer (I'm not sure but its smthg that allows her to live only a certain amount of time) so she escapes from there and finds that guy in the woods. After some time he finds out he can also bring things to live and eventually he cures her illnesses...

This year Keanu Reeves is staring in a movie by Eli Roth called Knock Knock. The premise is of a happily married man's wife and kid go away for the weekend. Two hot psychopathic girls come to his house and the make him regret letting them in. The premise is nearly identical to a 1970's movie I saw as a kid the 80's. There was only one actress I recognized in the movie, but she was an obscure character actress, so I can't even imbd her to track the movies name. In the 70's version there was not daughter, but do you remember this B movie from the 70's
