LAWeekly has a very interesting article up on the history and origins of the Internet Movie Database, one of the best sites on the net, in my opinion. If you want to know who starred in a movie or a TV show, what movies someone has starred in, or even trivia and goofs for movies, this is the site to check it out. I’ve saved myself from quite a few sleepless nights, trying to figure out where I’ve seen an actor before. It’s pretty common for my wife and I to pause a movie so we can figure out where “I’ve seen that guy”.
If you consider yourself and even remote movie fan, you should definitely put this site in your favorites.
