BAFTAs 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Main movies I'd like to earn awards - Stan and Ollie; Bohemian Rhapsody; Can You Ever Forgive Me? Lots of the others had really good moments and aspects - Favourite good - but Melissa deserves it more than Olivia - Roma - Vice... Malek deserves Best Actor for Freddie. Both Stan and Ollie deserve prizes.

I still have to see Black KKKlansman and Green Book.

Have I missed the one with Richard E Grant? I'm like flipping Cinderella when it comes to films. By the time I realise the film is out, its off!

Honey - the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) - is an excellent source of information about movies, TV series etc., new and old.

About 30 years old and owned by Amazon, it provides information on over 5 million movies and shows - and is viewed by 80+ million people.

It has a great App - allowing you to get the background and details about a movie direct to your phone. Info on virtually all new movies is given.


Should anyone know of a comparable alternative - I'd be grateful to know about it.

I'd have probably given Best Film to Stan and Ollie or Bohemian Rhapsody. But Roma is excellent, as is The Favourite. The only movie I really hated was A Star Is Born and even that deserved all the Grammys and Music Awards - some really good songs. But little else.

But don't you need a particular movie (and name) - to look up on Wikipedia - whereas IMDb gives you everything that's new.

Allowing you to buy one, stream it or watch it at the cinema. IMDb will even provide trailers and trivia!

I didnt know it gave you a list of the new films, Barney, so that is very helpful.
I think my problem is that round here there are not that many cinemas, and the films are on much later than other places, and off again quickly.

On the other hand, we do have a community cinema locally in a lovely art deco building which shows old films, new films, cabaret, film workshops, and lots of screenings for disabilities such as autism and dementia, and in South Liverpool, a proper old cinema with the giant screen and comfy chairs, so I cant complain too much!

Had a look at Wikipedia, for movies - and still think that IMDb is better.

More comprehensive, focused and recent - with all releases in the same place.


Although I was surprised to see the gross takings, in a very short time, for Glass - quoted by Wikipedia.

This is the recent Samuel L Jackson/Bruce Willis movie.


So far, it's grossed $221 million worldwide.

On a budget of $20 million!
