Reference , Film & Television

IMDb is the world's most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content. It is an online database of information related to films, television programs, and video games, taking in actors, production crew, fictional characters, biographies, plot summaries, and trivia. Actors and crew can post their own resume and upload photos of themselves for a yearly fee. U.S. users can also view over 6,000 movies and television shows from CBS, Sony, and various independent film makers.

Launched in 1990 by professional computer programmer Col Needham, the company was incorporated in the UK as Internet Movie Database Ltd in 1996, with revenue generated through advertising, licensing, and partnerships. In 1998, it became a subsidiary of Amazon.com, who were then able to use it as an advertising resource for selling DVDs and videotapes. As of April 11, 2014, IMDb had 2,841,405 titles (includes episodes) and 5,826,213 personalities in its database, as well as 52 million registered users and is an Alexa Top 50 site.

The site enables any user to submit new material and request edits to existing entries. Although all data is checked before going live, the system has been open to abuse, and occasional errors are acknowledged. Users are also invited to rate any film on a scale of 1 to 10, and the totals are converted into a weighted mean-rating that is displayed beside each title, with online filters employed to deter ballot-stuffing. The site also features Message Boards, which stimulate regular debates among authenticated users.

Ever been watching a show and thought, "Where have I seen that person before?" Just jump on imdb and find that actor in a second. For movie buffs, this site is a go to for reviews, information, and just general movie info.

I have come to absolutely LOVE IMDb. Everything on the site is organized and broken up into categories. Not only can you find out every work that your favorite actor/actress has been in, but the movie rating part is also helpful. There have been plenty of movies that I have skipped due to a poor IMDb rating.

I love the fact that there is also an area to put your own customer review of a movie, along with a forum for people to communicate with one another.

Wonderful site, there's nothing not to like about it.

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
