Often people want to find a film title from details they remember. Is it possible to search the web for it? Is there a good database you can recommend? I've looked, but haven't found one.
Yes, I know about IMDB, but (exhaustive as its catalog is) it doesn't excel at this particular task. Google is no help either.
In addition to asking here on AskMeFi, asking on the IMDB "I Need to Know"
board can provide the answer, often correctly, often quickly, which shows that the people there are good at this.
But hey, this is 2010.... isn't it possible to do this search online without involving a human??
