    I am a huge fan of IMDB

    Does anyone else use IMDB to help the decide on movies? I have enjoyed at least on some level about any movie I have watched with a IMDB rating of 7 or higher. If it above a 6 I will watch it, below that I steer away from it. It is much more accurate for me than Netflix's rating system. Are there any other web sites out there that do a good job of rating movies?

    Rotten Tomatoes is way better to figure out if you want to see a movie or not. You can pick a critic that sees the sames things as you do. I use IMDB whenever i have questions on who acted in a movie though.

    Re: I am a huge fan of IMDB

    imdb.com is probably the greatest movie reference site on the internet. However, short of the star rating (and leaving it at that), it's awful in trying to determine what movie to see. The most vocal critics on that site are in general the biggest D-bags and rip everything to shreds just to do so. For instance, one poster on the site was notorious for creating a Wikipedia page and editing it on the fly for a supposed book he had written using it as an argument that the movie Valkyrie was full of **** (and he got completely called out on it).

    Personally, i like viewing Mr. Cranky | Rates the Movies!

    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: I am a huge fan of IMDB

    I love IMDB, but just because I like looking up info as I'm watching a movie. There are four sites that I go to on a very regular basis.

    1. Yahoo mail
    2. Facebook
    3. Cyclonefanatic
    4. IMDB

    I don't usually trust movie opinions to just 1 person, there are to variables. IMDB breaks the movie down by age groups and gender. It also has a sliding scale. From what I can tell Rotten Tomatoes is yes you liked it or no you didn't. I watch way to many movies to go by that.

    Re: I am a huge fan of IMDB

    I use it when I'm watching some 1980's movie on Encore late at night and I feel like going to bed, so I look it up to see what happens so I don't have to watch the rest.

    Re: I am a huge fan of IMDB

    IMDBs ratings are a joke. Just look at the top 250 list. I do however use it regularly for cast lists, and up coming movies.

    Metacritic is also interesting.

    I guess it must be a matter of fit because I have liked every movie I have seen on the IMDB top 250, minus Clockwork Orange.

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

    I use Metacritic for games and movies, and IMDB to figure out who was in a particular movie. Pretty sure my wife uses IMDB for movie reviews though.
