The promise of crowd-sourcing film opinions from the public carried a lot of potential and has resulted in a lot of data about movies for companies like Netflix and IMDb. But as time goes on, informed critical analysis is looking more valuable every day. Cinetrii can help you connect films for recommendations based on…
Whether you’re trying to remember the name of that guy from the thing, or just contrasting a score against Rotten Tomatoes’s to see if it’s worth spending 15 goddamn dollars to see something in theaters, the Internet Movie Database is an indispensable consumer resource. There are many reasons IMDB has become an…
Priceonomics has ranked the most-popular cult TV shows, based on their IMDB scores. Across the board, Joss Whedon’s space western Firefly took the cake, with over 190,000 ratings and an average score of 9.1 stars out of 10. That’s a lot of love for the browncoats.
The governor of California signed a bill into law today that will make it illegal for entertainment websites like IMDB to post the ages of actors if that actor requests the information to be taken down. Needless to say, free speech advocates are outraged.
For everyone out there who's spent a feature-length-film amount of time trying to find something good to watch: What Is On Netflix is about to seriously streamline your selection process. The site lists streamables, ranked in descending order based on their respective Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB scores. Yay!
IMDb is one of the most useful sites on the web. But it's also one of the most outmoded. Now, two web designers have taken it upon themselves what an IMDb for 2014 would look like—and the results are pretty great. Here's how they explain their design.
During my lunch break yesterday, I decided to do a little multitasking and give the kind folks at PayPal a call regarding an ongoing issue I was having with my account. I figured, stupidly, that a company as big as PayPal would have more than three people working the whole of their customer service wing. As the call…
IMDB has an updated iPhone app out today which is cool and fine, but one peculiar addition is the ability to "check-in" and share whatever movie or TV show you're watching. I mean, whatever, Foursquare and Facebook and Yelp were fine, but at what point does the whole check-in trend become overkill? Does every special…
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
IMDb just released a new trivia app for the iPhone that's sure to be a great time spender/waster for any TV and movie buff. There are hundreds of fun little questions that'll work the part of the brain you fried from watching all those movies and shows.
Well, that took long enough. The Internet Movie Database—the sole reason that nobody can have factual arguments about movies anymore—has been turned into an iPhone app. A decent one, no less!
What does Fox have in mind for improving the experience of Blu-rays? Actually...some really great ideas, according to SlashFilm.
From September, all new Sony Pictures Blu-ray discs will support MovieIQ, a service which grabs IMDB-esque data from the Internet to show during playback. How BD-Live hadn't already been used to do something like this, I have no idea.
The original Internet Party was a pretty funny video, but I'd say that the sequel is even tighter in its execution. Watch your favorite websites—almost scarily apt in their personification—tell MySpace that it's time to stop. The actress playing IMDB is especially brilliant.
ThingM's WineM is one part intelligent wine rack, one part light show. This concept, currently on display at NextFest, works by taking bottles of wine tagged with RFID stickers and placing them onto the rack. Now if you're having Lamb Shank for dinner and want a decent Shiraz, just input into the computer that you…
