Russian titles for movies

anyone know a good place to cross reference the Russian title of movies? Since many non-Russian language movies are retitled it makes it super confusing when you are trying to talk about a movie as the translated names are completely different.

What I usually do is go to yandex.ru, the Russian search engine, and type in the name of the movie in English. Usually that automatically brings up something with the movie's name in Russian. It will have most information in Russian but then somewhere it will have the actual title listed. I think that the websites of movie theaters often do that as well--not just for English, but somewhere in their information they'll have the name of the movie in its original language. If you're trying to find out the English name of a movie whose title you know in Russian, that could be a little harder. But you could try to do the same thing. That is, type in the Russian title of the movie, and then the word "movie" or something, in English. A search engine like Google might work better in this case.

If you're trying to find out in order to share with your S/O in Russia (like she watched a movie and wants you to watch it too or vice versa) you can do above and search it on the search engines or you can check the imdb.com database and see what it was released as in Russia. One of the best ways to do it is to copy the main picture or jacket cover from the movie and send that to her. It's going to be a different name in Russian, but the artwork is usally the same.

The best way to do it is to use actor's names. Even in Russian, the actors names don't change. If I were to say, "Daniel Craig and Olga Kurylenko" there's only one movie she'd come up with, right?
