I absolutely love this site due to my love of movies and it is a great place to know anything you want to know about any movie you like. Imdb.com has lots of info about movies such as release dates, average critic reviews, cast lists with pictures, memorable quotes, and plot summaries. I use this site for everything including seeing which actor/actress played a certain role, when a movie came/or will come out, what critics are saying about it to decide if I should see it or not, and figuring out what a movie is about if I thought a trailer didn't explain enough. All of this is available with a clean and easy to use site that is pleasing to the eye.
I wouldnt use anywhere else to find info about a movie than here, it has it all. The review system could use a bit of work as films are always rated loads of 1s and 10s to try and balance the scores out but if people would just rate them properly then it would be so much better. Id still give it a 5 out of 5 stars though as everything else just works so well.
I'm often shocked at just how much information and connections to other information is available here. I can go on looking for one thing and spend an hour reading about a bunch of other things related to it.
For me imdb was crucial site for checking a movie before buying/renting it. Now it's full of idiot kids trolling the boards and giving unrealistic ratings for movies. Slowly I'm starting to ditch it more and more, at least until this is fixed somehow, and those trolls are banned or smth.
Use it all the time to search films, actors or whatever, if cant remember somebody's name but can remember a previous show or movie can just enter and find my answer, equally same if cant remember what else they have been in but know it will bug me forever, again search the name and lists everything ever starred in. whoo hoo no brain bugging.
We use Imdb for competition answers and finding their site has helped with so many other things such as; Choosing films from our DVD rental. Finding titles of Actors other films and giving them a view. Its fun to see how the great stars got to the top. I find TV shows and trace the spin off's that we never got to see in the UK. So finding the DVD of the series is also easier when you know the right words to search on the net. You can spend a lot of time on IMDB refreshing those memory cells, by tracking down those long lost shows.
Ok so its not like wikipedia, but the amount of information they have is insane. They never surrender any detail, It's an amazing place to find movies you would like. From user reviews to lists of movie star productions from specific actors.
I was thrilled to discover this website. I love movies, and you can find ANY movie here. If you know only one actor, you can scroll down their entire repertoire and find the one you just couldn't call to mind. Nice trivia bits, too. Every single actor in a film is listed, so you can pick out those guys that always play minor characters, but appear again and again. And you can see where you might have seen them before. It gives you a new appreciation for the versatility of many actors.
IMDB provides everything factual about any movie anywhere on the planet. It's so easy to use, and makes looking for information about an actor or actress in a movie as easy as pie! I don't use it that often, simply because I don't watch movies that often, but when I do I've found it undoubtedly useful.
