Let’s talk about my favorite yet least favorite thing online. IMDB. I love this website for all the movies it contains, it’s helped me discover films and tv shows I’d hadn’t known about, like Ergo Proxy, which is now one of my favorite series. I love the little information it puts for each film/show, from things like the actors names and the little goofs that happened during filmmaking. I also really appreciate the parents guides they have for everything because they tend to be more useful than the actual ratings provided.
On the other hand, IMDB probably has the worst online community I have ever seen, and that’s saying a lot. It’s especially prevalent in the threads for new upcoming movies. People start making assumptions about the film before it comes out with very little evidence for their claims, and they will not listen to you no matter what. On top of that almost everyone just acts like a stuck up elitist jerk. The worst example goes to most of the Star Wars threads, specifically for Rogue One and The Force Awakens. People keep making the same stupid jokes about Mary Sues and so called political agendas (I wont go any further than that) and not actually making any legitimate criticism of the films in question. It’s one of the most infuriating things ever.
Anyways what are your experience with IMDB and what do you like and don’t like about it?
