MyMovies

One of the best sites on the Internet that I choose to recommend as a movie search engine is Mymovies. Born in 2000, Mymovies is also a well-known cinematographic information magazine that offers a very rich database of all films from 1895 to today. For each film in the database, Mymovies offers reviews and in-depth articles with cards in which it is also possible to read general information, such as cast and duration of the film.

The Movie DB

The Movie DB is an online database of movies and TV series freely editable by users. A sort of Wikipedia, therefore, but specialized in the entertainment sector, with ratings on films and TV series.

Among the strengths of The Movie DB there is certainly its captivating user interface and the presence of essential general information. Unlike Mymovies, in fact, The Movie DB does not offer reviews on the sought-after film, but rather generic ratings indices through immediate graphs, stimulating users to discuss via an integrated forum. The files of the films and TV series are in cittàn but the contents written by the visitors of the integrated discussion forum are mainly in English.

Internet Movie Database (IMDB)

Internet Movie Database, commonly known by the acronym IMDB, is a database owned by Amazon.com with information on movies, TV series and their cast of actors and actresses.

The Internet Movie Database offers general information on the films and TV series you are looking for with content written in English. The most interesting feature of the site is undoubtedly the possibility of exploring a file full of singular secondary information (quotes or curiosities, for example) that can be useful for choosing the film or TV series to watch. The site is also full of multimedia content such as photos, videos and trailers.


The site is also present with a version paid which, called IMDB Pro is designed for professionals in the sector such as actors or directors, who wish to register to enter their works.

Just Watch

Among the Internet sites that you can use to search for films, I would like to point out the presence of Just Watch, a website that I consider an excellent tool for search for movies to stream on the main platforms dedicated to viewing multimedia content on demand.

Given the recent spread of platforms for legal streaming, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video for example, Now TV or Mediaset Premium Play, it has become extremely necessary to use an Internet site to search for a movie to watch in streaming, thus extricating oneself between the list of contents offered by the various platforms.

Among the most prominent features of Just Watch there is also the integration with the Uci Cinemas chain to show the films available in streaming but also those in programming. The Just Watch database can also be consulted from mobile devices, through the dedicated app for Android and iOS.
