There are a number of online search tools that assist in finding the title of a movie without knowing the name, including Instant Movie Name, AllMovie.com, TheMovieDB.org and several IMDb advanced search tool options. Such sites allow you to search for a movie based on keywords from the plot, actor names or character names, and return a list of possible movie title matches.
To use the Instant Movie Name online tool, type one or more keywords into the search bar. This search returns a list of possible movie titles with short descriptions and links to further information about the film. TheMovieDB.org provides a similar search bar feature, while the AllMovie.com advanced search tool allows you to narrow down the options by filtering movie titles for known information such as the genre, rating, release year or theme of the film.
To use the IMDb advanced search tools, first select the correct tool from choices such as the advanced title search, advanced named search, collaborations and overlaps, title text or name text search tools. To find the title of a movie with limited information, use the title text search feature. Choose a section to search from the drop-down menu from options such as plot, quotes, filming locations, literature, soundtracks and versions, type a keyword into the search bar, and then press search.
