With all the movie and TV shows coming out, it can be difficult to keep track of what you might be interested in watching. IMDb is a source for discovering new and old movies and shows, current show times, ans if you can stream a show on Amazon. IMDb is great for any casual viewer or movie buffer, as the app also provides behind-the-scenes content and additional cast and crew information while recommending other titles you can enjoy.
What is it?
IMDb (which stands for fir Internet Movie Database) is an entertainment hub for movies, television and video games. With features like Watchlist, I can keep an eye on movies and shows (new and old) to watch. I can also use IMDb to see what plays at nearby theaters and buy tickets through the app. It is always an advantage to buy tickets in advance for a long awaited movie opening night, which was how I managed to fit in tightly packed theater for Marvel's Black Panther. You can use the app without creating an account, but having one, you will join over 8 million users to contribute reviews, page changes and rankings.
Why We Love It
IMDb provides an attractive amount of information for over 5 million titles. With content that summarizes plots, clips, user and criticism, I can browse titles and add what sets my interest in my watchlist. I am a sucker for followers, who is sometimes the best part of a movie, and there is plenty to see in this app. Who doesn't love the hype of dramatic music, action pictures, and even sarcastic comments in three minutes or less? IMDb is owned by Amazon and with on a movie or TV show it is available to watch Amazon Prime or if you can purchase a physical copy through Amazon. To go out or stay in, IMDb helps you choose movies and shows to enjoy.
Reviews and recommendations
Read reviews from critics and IMDb users to get a feel for what to see. The simple location, which ranks a movie 1-10 and depends on a weighted average, usually gives an idea of what you are up for. Using this class system, IMDb maintains a Top 250 Films list, which includes the latest offers such as 2018 Bohemian Rhapsody and extends to early cinema as 1931s City Lights with Charlie Chaplin. The Top 250 Films list crosses genres and international boundaries, so if you want to dip your toes into what is considered classics by over 8 million users, browse the Top 250 to schedule a movie night. I'm a big fan of nice, bad movies, so I'm happy to choose movies from the 100 lowest rated movies as well. Filled with spin-offs, sequels and remakes, Bottom 100 has introduced me to a series of wonderful, horrible movies to my friends. When considering, evaluating or just checking out a title page, IMDb will recommend similar content. Then start with a title like Sylvester Stallones Rocky and hold the lineup with Terminator Kill Bill and Jaws .
] Behind the scenes and Trivia
IMDb is loaded with interviews, featurettes and tanks of trivia like cameos and other little-known facts. I like "where are they now" articles and see which direction certain players have taken with their careers. Sometimes I get a nice surprise, like a former child star who becomes the producer of some of my favorite movies. IMDb also follows pricing, so if you miss the Oscars or Academy Awards, you can find clips and galleries to know who won what (and check out their fancy event outfits).
IMDb can make you happy for upcoming shows or recommend an older title that becomes a new favorite. If you just want to see something to relax or something to analyze, this app has covered you.
