The Internet Movie Database

The most comprehensive search engine for information about films and the people who make them. Back in 1990, Col Needham watched 1,100 films in 12 months and developed this site to prove it. It has gotten bigger and better since then. A movie addict's heaven, The Internet Movie Database has information about over 180,000 films and has won three Webbies (the net equivalent of an Academy Award). By the way, Col's total has now reached over 7,000 films - the equivalent of a film a day for almost 19 years. Now that is what we call a job!
This site features hundreds of sites, each dealing with a particular area of interest. Each of this individual sites is led by a knowledgable guide who "mines" the Internet for the best and most relevant information in their subject area. Our favorite area on this site is the section on Classic Movies that was recognized as one of the two best classic film sites on the web by Roger Ebert in the June, 1999 Yahoo Internet Life magazine. Hosted by Brad Lang this area presents clear and concise information about classic films as well as suggestions about the best sites on the Web to locate information about great films.
