Using Google to find Movies

Awhile back I wrote about how to use the google search to find Mp3 files and Ebooks. Here is a way to use similar searches to find movies using google searches.

To achieve this we will borrow some of the operators from the Mp3 Search, namely -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of”

You could also add “-inurl:php” to avoid those nasty index.php files as well.

Now we could simply add the known movie file extensions like mpg, avi, wmv to the search and look at the first results.

We probably want to find special movies, like tv commercials, movies with a special actor in it, adult movies aso. What you do is to simply add what you are looking for to the search. For example movies with Claudia Schiffer would be found with the following search

-inurl:htm -inurl:html -inurl:php intitle:”index of” (mpg|avi|wmv) “Claudia Schiffer”

The (mpg|avi|wmv) operator can also be written (mpg or avi or wmv).
