Can’t Remember The Name Of A Movie You Watched? There’s A Site For That.

 This nifty website helps you recall movies you watched – and it works!

We’ve all been there. Trying to recall a movie we watched years ago but failing to come up with the title.


Finally, there’s a website that helps put a name to the vague description of a ‘phantom’ movie we have in our minds.

Enter: Designed by a spin-off company of University of Oulu, Finland, the website claims to be the first ever descriptive movie search engine.

Either type in the description of the movie or use the site’s voice-controlled movie search. This allows you to speak freely about the movie in as little or much detail as possible and it will generate a series of appropriate results.


Chances are, once you see the movie poster, something will click and you’ll be able to remember which movie you were looking for.

Their database currently holds over 45,000 English language movies and generates results based on a combination of natural language processing and pattern recognition Artificial Intelligence.

The website is also a great tool for finding movie recommendations. Looking for a romantic movie starring Ryan Gosling or an action flick starring Chris Evans? Type it in and let the algorithm do its magic.
