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!

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:

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.

Looking for a short film about a man who walks into a bodega whilst it's being robbed and gets shot. As he is falling down, he remembers a baseball game he played as a kid. It turns out that this game was the best day of his life. When he hits the floor he is dead. I saw this in the late 80's early 90's. It is either from an anthology of short films or a HBO Short Takes. Thank you for the help.

I watched a movie when I was a kid in the 90's about a boy in either a dream world or parallel world. It may have been a British movie made in the 70's or 80's. The boy is traveling through this very stange world/city that is falling apart, he talks to animals and monster types who are all a little off and is chased by a flying crow like bird. I believe the movie was based of a boy imagination who is in Germany during world war 1 or 2. I believe it was an artist who made the movie and I would really like to find it again. I believe I once saw its description when I was trying to look up another movie I believe was Tears of the Sun, which may have had a similar premise, about a boy in World War One who wants to be a pilot and is traveling around as a refuge and foster child through war torn Europe.

@Kaylee ~ Kate & Leopold (2001) From IMDb: Kate and her actor brother Charlie live in New York City in the 21st century. Her ex-boyfriend Stuart lives above her apartment. Stuart finds a space near the Brooklyn Bridge where there is a gap in time. He goes back to the 19th century and takes pictures of the place. Leopold~a man living in the 1870s~is puzzled by Stuart's tiny camera, follows him back through the gap, and ends up with him in the present day. Leopold is clueless about his new surroundings. He gets help and insight from Charlie, who thinks that Leopold is an actor who is always in character. Leopold is a highly intelligent man and tries his best to learn and even improve the modern conveniences that he encounters. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035423/

A German soldier is standing in the back of the open truck, facing forward. He does not see the wire strung across the road. When the truck speeds under the wire, the soldier's head is cut off, decapitated.

@Sarah ~ This is a guess: Redemption of the Ghost (2002) From IMDb: Convicted embezzler Witt Hampton escapes from prison. While hiding out in an isolated country barn, he is discovered by young Cassy and her brother, Jack. After convincing them he's a friendly ghost that only they can see, the three new friends embark on one imaginative adventure after another until, inspired by their innocent spirits, Witt vows to redeem his crimes. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0219272/

"Ripoff" often is used incorrectly, but this film IS a ripoff of the classic "Whistle Down the Wind" (1961).

Of course, this might not be your movie at all. If it is, you might want to see the earlier film, which is made in b&w and was written especially for Hayley Mills by her mother.

There was a movie I kept seeing commercials for around Christmas/New Years this past year that I can't remember the name of. It's a romantic comedy, I believe it was just on tv, about a woman who is about to get married for the second time and travels back in time to before she was married the first time. It just came out (late 2014/early 2015) and the commercials showed her joking with old roommates and trying to figure out why the first relationship when wrong. If you know the movie that would be awesome! Thanks!

The man was limping at the start. The buys both the kids a bike later on and saves the girl from drowning when she fall's in a river after falling of her bike. I think an old lady phoned the police and they came and arrested him just after he saved the girl. That's all I remember. Anyone know the film?

Hi! I saw this movie when I was a pretty young child. It was already older (so like a 70s or 80s movie) and all I can remember is that the protagonists were young (teens or children). It was some kind of sci fi or fantasy and towards the end, they end up in this room filled with different "cubes" of "foam" and each one represents a different reality (or something like that). The older teens are talking to some NPC when the younger brother grabs a black cube and bites it and suddenly everything goes black (like it opened a black hole or destroyed the universe or something). I know this isn't much to go on, but something jogged my memory the other day and I wanted to try to figure out what movie this was. I don't remember anything else, but that one moment scared the crap out of me as a kid. Any help appreciated!

That sounds like BIG. Josh wishes on a 'Zoltar' fortune telling machine in an amusement arcade that he could be big. When he wakes up he has grown big - an adults body but still a 12year old boy in his mind. Tom Hanks plays big josh. Elizabeth Perkins is the love interest with the white bra

This was a childhood film, but I really can't remember the name. I think it was something like "the ....... Theif" I'm not sure.

Plot: a teen orphan sneaks away with his adopted brother to Venice. Their mother described it as the city of wonders or something like that. They stumbled upon an old theatre which was habited with other homeless orphans. Their leader (the name of the film) was the greates theif they knew, or so they thought. He was really the son of a rich Buisness man, who occasionally stole some of his fathers objects and pawned them. There was something about a legend of this magic merry-go-round which could either make you older or younger. They just needed two magic angel wings to get it to work.

I honestly can't think of other important details I might have missed. But if anyone knows what the film is please let me know! Thank youu :)

I watched this movie about 10+ years ago... I'm not sure if it had Tom Hanks in it. It's something about him being reborn (in a machine?) as an adult with a child's mind. And this woman tries to sex him up in one scene (she has a white bra and plays sex for him on tv). He also gets in trouble because he takes a child's chocolate bar or something... And gets handcuffed to a bathroom?

God, I wish I knew the title.

I’m looking for a movie or tv movie made in the late 80s\early 90s. Its about a group of men being hunted by an unusual man, rather beastly, but human. He preys on the men in the wildnerness. There’s a scene in which one of the men plays dead as a spider\insect crawls on his face\neck as the "hunter" stands before him looking for his next kill. I recall the end of the movie showing the hunter being thrown from a cliff onto some rocks.

Not certain this was a movie, may have been an episode on some anthology show. Although if it was, I know it was not on any commonly known ones. It would have been from around 1980, possibly the late 70s. It was horror and involved an artist, who was traveling. My recollections of much of the plot is vague, as I saw it once, and I was very young at the time. Watching it, it seemed relatively new for the time I saw it. I am relatively certain it was on a VHF channel curing primetime. At any rate, this artist stops at a house. I don't remember where he was headed but I am pretty certain it was not this particular house. At the time I thought maybe he had some kind of car troubles, but now it seems to make more sense that it was some kind of Bed and Breakfast or something like that. Although, the only other people in the house were a pretty young woman, and an older lady. I want to say it was the girl's aunt. This guy ends up staying at the house with the women for a little while. He and the young woman begin a romantic relationship. He paints her portrait out in the yard one day, and sticks it in the trunk of his car when it is finished. One night he awakes to find the young girl standing over him. He tries talking to her but she doesn't answer him, she leers at him and her eyes and teeth are all weird. She starts laughing really eery and tries to attack him. He fights her off and runs to the old ladies room, and sees a strange man leaning over the bed. The man's eyes and teeth look like those of the young girl's He is attacking the old lady. I don't think he was a vampire, because it did not seem like he was to me at the time. The artist tries to get away, and while escaping somehow the house catches fire. He gets outside and passes out of something. The next morning he is speaking with police and they tell him, that the house burnt down ages ago. He insists that he had spent the last weeks or so there, and he has proof... the painting in his trunk. He opens the trunk and produces a blank canvas. In the back ground the young girls creepy laugh is played.

My sister was just telling me about a movie she saw late night 10:30 P coast time a couple of weeks ago.

It was about a man that recorded every thing that was said even when he was home. He would date these records and store them in his man room, where his wife and son could not see them.

The son was having to go through the house and get rid of every thing because the house was being repossessed.

I would like to see this movie because it sounds like some one I know.

I always thought this film was called not without my children but only not without my daughter comes up & I watched not without my daughter to see if it was that but it didn't ring any bells & I always thought Richard E Grant was the father in the film but it doesn't come up in his Wikipedia.

Late eighties early nineties I was only a kid so I can only vaguely remember. It could have been a made for tv film or a series my mam watched but she can't remember it.

Ok so I remember the father kidnaps the children (I'm quite sure a boy & a girl) & brings them to his home country I can't remember what country but it's foreign coz the kids are lightly dark skinned, I think she goes to the country but the father has them hid & she doesn't find them, but at the end they are a few years older & I remember them running to her.

I know it's very vague so I understand if nobody knows. It just has my head wrecked for a while now.

I think I saw this movie on Netflix. I think it was in London. Two wheelchair bound young guys break out of their "nursing" home and have a fling around town. One guy was good looking and daring, and tried to teach the quiet one how to pick up girls in bars. It was raining. One got an inheritance and they got their own apartment. In the end he died. It was sad but revealed the frustrations of people who are handicapped but want the same things in life we all want. I have no idea the name of it.

Please help I have been trying to find the name of this movie. All I know is that it starts with a guy out on a run, returns home to find his wife or girlfriend dead in the tub. He rents a room from a woman that he shares an apartment with. Through out the movie he does things to the woman like locking her in her room. Toward the end of the movie he lets her out to have a romantic dinner and she poison him by putting some bacteria that she was studying from a petri dish on to his dessert. Thats all I can remember.

I am looking for this movie I saw on Netflix (I think). It was clearly British. It was a musical with lots of hipsters. The first scene was the band playing in a small car. There was a band (maybe it was The Proclaimers) that played the 500 miles song on a big stage midthrough the movie. There's a big fur coat involved upon the shoulders of the romantic couple throughout the movie. Oh yeah, it's about a guy and a girl that hate each other, are from different bands but get cuffed up together till the festival's end. It's one of my fav bubblegum movie. Thank you so much. I have been looking for that movie on the web, but cannot find it all.

Looking for a movie probably from the 60s or 70s. A man is plagued by animals. He must carry an umbrella because if he walks in the open birds will shit on him. He goes to the dept of animal affairs and the people there are wierd....they act like animals...this is a comedy probably foreign made.

I'm trying to figure out the name of a movie from the 1980s maybe early 90s, about two teenage girls who are friends, one girl has a brother who is sleeping with their neighbor, but they thought it was the girl's father at first because his tools were in the lady's apartment. I think the girls steal from a store in the movie and I also remember a scene where a group of guys harass women that walk by. Anyone know what this movie or TV show was called?

That was "The Cool And The Crazy"(1958)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051488/

This is how it ends....

Ben gets his just deserts in a fiery car wreck. Then there is an obligatory moralizing segment, where a policeman screams at the surviving addicts, "Is this what you call 'kicks'?! Sooner or later, if you don't wise up you're all gonna wind up like this, one way or the other."

HERE'S MY QUESTION! BLACK AND WHITE FILM. MALE VILLAIN HAS "TUFTS OF HAIR", ENDS UP WITH A PRETTY GIRL, THEY HAVE A BABY, AND THE BABY HAS THE SAME "TUFTS OF HAIR"........ANY IDEA WHAT THE HECK THIS MOVIE IS CALLED? THANK YOU!

Please help - im going mental trying to find this film! I caught this on TV late one night. Didnt see it from start. Never knew what it was called. And Ive never been able to identify it since.

Its an old anti-drug propaganda film. American. B&W. 1950s or even earlier. (Now, calm down before jumping in - its not any of the obvious ones like Reefer Madness or Assasin of Youth or Drug Addiction. Although it does sound exactly like one of those well referenced ones)

It features a group of guys who hang out in a coffee bar. They all indulge in cannabis - their slang word for it is 'stick'. It must be great stuff - after just one hit they're antsy: 'man, I need stick'

It ends with deaths in a car crash and a man standing with the girlfriend of one the guys, overlooking the accident, smoking his pipe and solemnly declaring something like 'well, thats whats happens when you mess with drugs' (not an accurate quote, but thats the essence of what he says)

You're probably thinking of the movie "Faster". Though its not his daughter that gets killed, its his brother.

Hello, Im trying to find a movie from my childhood.

I think it was from the early to mid 1980's.

It was either horror or sci-fi. It was a low budget film.

It may have been a post apocalyptic or futuristic movie, but I dont know for sure.

The scene I remember is two teenage kids controlling a robot, and the robot pushes a bad guy in a hospital gown down the stairs to his death.

Any help?

Its not Deadly Friend or Short Circuit, before those movies and cheaply made.

I'm looking for a movie I've seen a long time ago. I remember just a few things from the movie and I hope someone could help me find it. There's also possibility that's a TV Movie. Anyway it was about two teenage friends who were cheerleaders I think. One got a new pair of white sneakers from her mum (i remember her room was pink). And then she should go on competition, but she never showed up. Later the found her sneakers in camp where was growing wheat I think and then also her body. There was a neighbour i think who wanted to give a ride to her best friend, but she saw something in garden house and she connected it to her murdered friend, then in the car she runs away and then the got him ... that's all i remember. I hope someone could help me.

I am looking for the name of the movie in which a married man with mob ties cheats on his wife with another woman who is also no angel. Later the woman he cheats with forces him to dig a grave and bury a mutual assocate. He think he kills her and puts her in the backseat and she comes to life and wraps her legs around his head trying to strangle him. Later the woman loses an arm. But he still can't resist her and has sex with her again. She gets accused of murder. Walks away laughing that she gets away with murder. He shoots her at the end.

Ok, one more guess....."A Long Return"(1975)

....'The couple has only a short time together as David dies (possibly of heart failure or old age) a few days later. After David’s death, Anna’s doctor comes by the house, asking the grief-stricken widow, where she will go from here.....She then tearfully glances at the doctor and utters to him “Today is the first day of the rest of my life,” knowing David would want her to go on living her life.

Whats the movie where the guy and the girl are moving into a new house and the girl makes the guy reorient the bed so shes away from the window in case kidnappers come on so he can protect her?


S-Dn 9 days ago

Thank you so much, but I guess the movie I am looking for is a different one. See, She wakes up almost at the end of the movie to see how much her husband has aged. The movie ends with his death and she leaves him at home and pulls down the shades and goes away with her doctor. Actually that is the soundtrack of the movie I am looking for.

I am not sure about the year, but I guess it is in the 70s or 80s.

Thank you again.

It's been 15 years or so, but this move had a black ball that this little girl and boy had, and it took off in the room like a bullet and smashed and broke things in the room. Finally they both wound up in this spaceship with this big monster that looked simular to "Barney"(I love you,you love me, we're one great big family ect...) And it says to them "Amaze your friends, be the life of the party
