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.

Ticketvibe is dishonest in their advertising for events, they will rip you off. Their site is also not very good, it's cluttered and difficult to navigate at times.

A pretty busy homepage with a lot of content on it but with nicely designed top navigation. The footer is similarly well-designed and leads the user to not be overwhelmed despite the great amount of content present on the site.

I would consider reducing the amount of options on the...

A very minimal landing page which looks a little too simple to inspire confidence and trust in the user.

The top links when they do work, remove the header links and do not allow the user to navigate back to the home page without refreshing. The About, Press, and Privacy links all...

Generally, a good looking site but is a little overwhelming with the sheer amount of content on it.

The landing image itself with its great number of content is a little overwhelming to the eye and this experience only increases as one scrolls down further down the page.
