Good films you have forgotten the name of

January 30, 2011 6:46pm CST
When I see a film I really like on TV I usually take a look on amazon and get the DVD but a few years ago I saw a film I can't remember the name of that I thought was really good. Do you ever experience this with a film you really liked from watching it a while back?.

I'm quite fortunate because usually if I forget a name of a movie I will remember an actor who was in it and that triggers something else and I always manage to work out what the movie was after a bit of thinking. But funnily I remember watching an old vampire movie as a child, I am talking back at the start of the 80s, and there is just one scene I can remember and nothing else but I would love to find out what that movie was so that I could rewatch it, lol.

Thanks for the response. I probably would remember the name of this particular film but it's French film that I caught on TV.

I don't know about films necessarily but this happens a lot with me and songs I hear on the radio. It's really irritating to like something but not know what it's called! With songs, I can never really remember any of the lyrics are rarely are my friends of any help in these situations when I try to hum along what I thought was the chorus and give htem the few lyrics I did know. lol.

Thanks for the response. I know what you mean about on the radio as they don't always say what the song was afterwards.

Hi laker, Its good to forget good movies once in a while. I, too, have this habit of forgetting good movies I've seen, and when I come upon it once more, it is as if I see the movie for the first time and the enjoyment is the same.

Most of the time. Sometimes I just remember some scenes from those black and white movies but I can't remember the title of the movie. I can't even remember the actors so it's quite difficult to find what the movie was. It can be quite frustrating because I know it's a good movie since I can remember the scene very well but I just can't remember the title.

Did it have Keanu Reeves in as well? "Something's Gotta Give" from 2003?.

I have seen a lot of great movies through the years. Sad to say I have forgotten most of the titles. I only get to recall them when I see them again on cable. Thank God for cable TV

It's great when you see that a film you like is on TV.

Yes, I do experience that. Sometimes I can recall the title but I can't remember the plot of the film. Other times I remember the title and the plot but I just can't seem to recall who the actors were. I guess I'm very prone to short-term memory losses.

Thanks for your response. I usually remember the name too but I was recently looking for some DVD's and thinking about what films I had seen on TV that I thought were good and the name has slipped my mind of this particular one.
