I understand. You found paradise in films, you had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. You didn't need a friend like me. But, now you come to me, and you say: 'Don Corleone, give me a good film.' But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you ask me what is the most ranked movie. - The Godfather
One way to discover great movies and brush up on your movie trivia is through browsing the Internet Movie Database - better known as IMDb - which is one of the most popular sources for film, TV, and celebrity-biography content. More than 250 million people visit the site each month. The IMDb database includes more than 185 million data points related to the more than 3 million film and television productions included in its database.
Movies today tend to better meet viewers' expectations than in decades past. While box office earnings may provide better insight into how desirable a movie was before viewing, an IMDb ranking is a useful indicator of the impression a movie makes on actual viewers, helping us to understand if movies live up to their hype.
Note: IMDb ratings change daily data. Data below were collected on April 20, 2017.
