IMDB for Internet Movie DataBase is the most known website for movies,
they are not perfect and lack a lot of independant stuff, but the amount of users allow to have some valuable opinions about given movies, and they have this amazing stuff : lists.

People make lists of their favorite movies etc and when i go for let's say earthlings, i can see lists of people who put it in their movie list, and in those lists i can find whatever they put in, and in this case it will probably include meat the truth, and globally speaking if i find in the list 3-4 things i like and not too much crap, i can give a try to some of those things thinking that we have similar tastes ^^

So, i just made my own list, so you can have a look there should be some stuff for everyone, and you can share yours if you have one ^^

I strongly recommend that you give a ten to vegan related documentaries.

Andrei Rublev is kind of infamous for containing real animal cruelty.

I love IMDB and visit there more often than I even care to admit. I've even paused movies while watching them so that I could look up all of the trivia and/or goofs to look out for. That said, I simply cannot disagree with any list that includes The Abominable Dr. Phibes. You sir are a man of discriminating taste and I cannot find fault with anyone who has love for Vincent Price. Carry on!

Didn't knew for Andrei Rublev, what a shame for such a great movie... I do note that times have changed, i don't think that anyonce can still do it... for a movie like war horse they have made a lot of noise about the good treatment of animals. The world is getting slowly better on this side. And there is more movies where the hero is a animal ( generally a dog ).

One good point with IMDB is that the amount of users, despite his intraseque default of being the mass, tends to kill stupid reviews.

Like for The Lucky Ones, wich is a modern movie wich has received very bad critics from big guys, bad i found it unfair and i eally enjoyed the movie, it gots a nice 7 on imdb. It's one thing i like also with this website.

My list is not perfect ( how could it be, anyone has different tastes ) and include some movies like barbwire ( rated 3.1 lol ) or plan 9 from outer space ( 3.7 ) or the attack of the killer tomatoes ( 4.3 ), but they have they reasons to be here, barbwire has a little place in the cyberpunk culture, plan 9 is a must see to really enjoy ed wood the movie ( tim burton consider ed wood as his best movie ), and the attack of the killer tomatoes is actually the "scary movie license" of it's time, full of references to old movies and it got it's true taste only when you have seen the oldies it's referring too ( try enjoying scary movie without having seen any of the movies it speaks about and you will find it lame too ).

If IMDB would have been perfect, it would have the cyberpunk educator among others, wich is a homemade documentary on cyberpunk, but it's still the best thing around for general movies. If you want specialised stuff there are specialised places.

The movies order for my list is MovieMeter wich means that first appears those with the most searches for, it should make the list more popular and hopefully more people will rread the little disclaimer inviting to watch earthlings, forks over knives & co.

Well for all it's faults, any list that doesn't include Phibes just plain sucks. That's all there is to it... end of story.

I always rely on IMDB before renting a movie so I could look up the reviews and information on it. I liked the old format of the site better though.

Yeah, the trivia sections are really interesting.
