The Internet Movie Database August 27, 2007

Posted by admin in : Fun (Teacher) , trackback

As it’s the half-term break for many schools in the UK I thought I’d do something different this week and feature links to some of the non-educational sites that I use on a regular basis. The first is the brilliant Internet Movie Database.

Ever wondered who was in a particular film? Want to know where you’ve seen a particular actor or actress before? This site has all the answers. The heart of the site is a huge database of what must be nearly every film ever produced commercially. You can search for film titles, actors, directors etc. Click on an actor/actress and all the films they’ve ever been in will appear.

Advanced searches allow you to do useful things like find which films two particular people have starred together in. It’s great to answer those niggling questions you get on occasions and even covers TV programmes as well. I use it all the time!
