"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.

@IDarkside ~ Sooner or Later (1979 TV movie) starring Rex Smith and Denise Miller http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079935/

It's a very sweet movie that helped make Rex Smith very popular for quite a while. I've answered this question for dozens of people during the past eight years or so, making it somewhat of a cult film.

Corney 80's movie I saw at 3am on fox as a kid. Teen girl gets a makeover and looks older. She falls for a guitar player/instructor who thinks she is 18. He finds out and breaks up with her. I think she eats a whole pan of brownies. -- It was intended to be a drama, but It was hilarious in the way that old after school specials often are.

Spanish Language movie- I think it's less than ten years old. I think the title is just a man's name, or at least has a man's name in it.

The main character appears to be an unassuming teacher or social worker or something like that in tiny village in a South American country (I think), but he has hidden talents. Turns out he's the heir to a great fortune- his father has died and left all to him. nobody knew his father had a son. He adopted the boy from an orphanage and kept him a secret, fostering him out to a good friend and old employee. I think aside from that couple, only the lawyer and maybe a secretary knew of the heir.

People are trying to kill the son, and he's trying to figure out who, and why, and I believe he is also trying to figure otu who killed his dad.

Some spoilers- the foster family he grew up with also adopted their son from the same orphanage because they couldn't have kids. He's jealous of the son of the tycoon and is involved in the plot to kill him. The foster parents get killed, the secretary turns out to be the baddie. Lots of action scenes.

I can't find this movie anywhere for the life of me.... I don't think the movie deals specifically with split personality disorder but rather has one scene towards the end of the movie where...

A good natured older white lady sits while being asked questions by a younger woman. All of a sudden she breaks into a split personality in her response and this demonic or evil voice comes out. The voice comes as a shock to the younger woman asking the questions.

Thank you!

Only remember The ending of this movie. Amanda gets on the train and he thinks that a lot of people are dead, I don't recall if he thinks he murdered some of them. However, when he is sitting on the train there is another train on the track right next to him. As he looks over he sees all of the people that he thought were dead laughing and talking on the train. So it turns out that all of them where actors and they were alive. What was this movie?

You describe the Charles Dickens novel "Oliver Twist".

'Based on the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist is about an orphan boy who runs away from a workhouse and meets a pickpocket on the streets of London. Oliver is taken in by the pickpocket and he joins a household of young boys who are trained to steal for their master.'

I believe this movie is from the early 90's, they were dressed like the movie was based in the early 20's, in England maybe? It's about a guy who in early childhood his sister fell into a pond and drown while he watched helplessly. I think there were three people trying to kill him, they might of been possessed, but towards the end of the movie the little girl who downed ended up saving him. I think she was represented like an angel. Sorry for the poor description.

This is a wild guess, and the girl writing the secret love letters was only a subplot, but it was the first movie to come to mind.....

Merteuil then convinces her cousin to allow Cecile to join her in the country while helping Cecile write secret love letters to Danceny.'

Some people are trapped in a high rise as a fire burns toward them from below. Then I think a chopper crashes on the roof and a second fire starts burning from above. I seem to remember the people filling a closet with water and waiting in there until the two fires meet. Theres a big explosion but I think they survive. In my quest to rediscover it, tried Towering Inferno, Backdraft and just stumbled across a tv movie called 'Fire Trapped on the 37th Floor'. But still not found what I'm after.

Hi, really struggling to find a movie I saw years ago. I think it's from the late 80's or early 90's.

The plot is that a redneck guy steals some car hood ornaments from a junkyard, the owner calls the police and a siege of the

Rednecks house ensues. At the end of the movie the man is offered amnesty if he agrees to join the army, however the army won't let him join as it turns out he can not read.

This has been bugging me for ages so any help will be greatly appreciated

@paula64 ~ This is a wild guess: Desert Bloom (1986) From IMDb: The story involves Rose Chismore's youth as she remembers her coming-of-age. Her recollections are sometimes less than sweet, particularly those of her troubled and alcoholic stepfather. Her memories of Robin, her first love, are much happier; and, she also recalls her colorful Aunt Starr, whose visit is fun but also detrimental to her family's health. The setting of 1950s Las Vegas bomb testing is increasingly significant to the development of the story. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090934/

For the life of me I can't remember a movie I watched for history class. The movie starts with ragged clusters of people trying to get warm among the debris of a building. A man joined them and gave a girl a gold medal. It was later revealed that he was a former olympic swimming gold medalist, but because of his countries systematic doping of athletics, his body is ruined and can never swim again (Makes me think its East Germany). Near the end of the movie, he dives in to rescue a kid despite his failing body. He got the kid out but started to drown. Someone saved him, and in the end his old olympic rival from some western country who's doing well decided to support/help him. I think it was in a foreign language as I recall subtitles, so I won't be surprised it no one's seen it. Anyway, any help would be appreciated!

@Linda ~ You're welcome! Dudley Moore was hugely popular during that period of time, having captured attention here in the States with his hilarious role in "Foul Play", co-starring with Goldie Hawn.

A young girl who died (12 to teens) keeps showing up to her parents, briefly crying about something, or asking for help. I seem to remember something about a projector. Sorry, I know it's not much. The movie was somewhere in the 1970's. Very eerie.

Hi, sorry for repeating, i think my question got lost so hope no one minds me asking again. What's the movie (I think it's an older Lifetime movie) where a husband's wife and baby boy are at home while he goes to work and the wife had answered a contest so she went to a designated hotel and she filled papers out then was killed. The papers made it sound like she was going to kill herself and the baby, but the husband was suspicious because they never found the baby's body and he knew his wife would never do that, so he tries to find out what happened and ended up that his adopted mother had hired the kidnappers to kill his wife and take the baby so she could have a part of him because she was upset that she lost custody of him.

a comedy about a man whose wife and mistress are both giving birth at the same time in the same hospital and he is running from one room to the next checking on them. I thought Robin Williams was the man, but am not sure.

Three cousins all with magical abilities that's part of there family history. There going to high school and when the oldest cousin turns 20 ( I think, not sure on age) he gets all of his abilities and they fine out there's a bastard cousin of there's that they didn't know they had trying to force them to will there powers to him. But after they get there full powers if they try to use to much of it the side effects of it will age you significantly as seen by the oldest cousins father, who in the end wills his powers to his son and he's able to defeat the evil cousin

In the movie I'm trying to remember, all I can remember is at the end you find out the character was in a school bus crash when he was child, and the bus end up hanging over some kind of ledge/cliff, with the main character standing in the back being the only leverage keeping the bus from falling completely. The teacher tells him to go out the back of the bus and save himself, and the bus falls and kills everyone left on board.

I believe that it was a boy, who had blanked out the memory from his mind, but was having guilty feelings and flashbacks later as a teen/young adult. However this may not be 100% accurate. Also, I would guess it has been at least 8-10 years ago that I watched this movie.

Any ideas?
