I think I first accessed IMDB sometime during my first year at university. At the time, 1994, the site was still in its infancy, even though it held a lot of information.
Skip forward 14 years and The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) has to be ranked as one of the most useful sites on the web if you’re anyway interested in film or tv. The site is packed with information on films, actors, directors and upcoming releases.
Unfortunately you cannot get local movie times unless you’re in the UK or US, but even so the wealth of information that the site provides is amazing.
