We’ve all been there: I saw a movie on television five years ago and can’t remember the title or much about it save for a few stray details. Whether this is a personal problem or a patron standing before us, it is not always easy to suss out a good enough search term to find the movie in question.
Luckily, there is a website that can help in these thorny situations. You can enter a simple search term and results will be populated, with basic information (year, summary, and poster image). There is also an option for “More like this” for suggestions of similar-themed movies.
You don’t need to use this tool only for a specific movie, either. This is a good resource to get titles that meet a desired criteria, much in the same way Novelist can be used to find books based on mood.
“romantic comedies involving mistaken identity”
“nonviolent princess movies”
And on and on. Results are not always perfect, but with a simple to use interface and features like “More like this,” What Is My Movie? is a good resource in the repertoire for both specific inquiries and recommendation situations.
