The Internet Movie Database is now 25 years old. When IMDB first began, it was a downloadable database software on the earliest version of the internet, but now it’s much bigger than that. The Internet Movie Database has a quarter of a billion customers, and some of those users spend their time rating movies on the site. Find out what the top rated movies of the last 25 years are after the jump.

We all know how it is, sometimes while browsing the Internet Movie Database you can hit an unseen landline — a spoiler in the form of an actor or character in an episode’s credits. You had no idea that character was going to die in that popular Netflix series until you saw how many episodes the character was listed to appear in on IMDb.
What is the spoiler-phobic person to do? Not use IMDB to look up episode information? Of course not, thats ridiculous. (yes, this is sarcasm) Thankfully someone has created an extension for your web browser that will hide potential imdb spoilers from the television show listings. Find out how to get it, after the jump.
There are few things more frustrating than the speed with which the Internet posts spoilers. The second a character dies on TV, there are hundreds of online articles about it, and thousands of tweets. If there’s a surprise in a movie? Good luck holding that for the opening. The second something is seen, avoiding the spoiler is like navigating a mine field. Your Twitter, Facebook, and daily conversations all become potential places to be spoiled.
Now, in their continuing bid for world domination, Google has created a software to protect you from that. It learns what shows, books and movies you watch and then will blur out social media spoilers until you are ready to read them. Find out more about the Google spoiler software below. Read More »

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is the height of technical cinema. Whether you love or hate the story, the filmmaking used to bring it to life is extraordinary. The practical and digital effects, the cinematography, production design, IMAX sequences, sound effects, and score are just some of the best of the best. It’s pretty much as high-tech as a movie gets.
So what better way to celebrate Tuesday’s digital release (and the impending Blu-ray release) than with the lowest-tech game imaginable?
Paramount has launched the Interstellar Text Adventure, a text-based game similar to the popular computer games of the early 1980s. There are no images, just text; you have to type in your commands to travel through the galaxy. It’s a lot of fun and a nice throwback. Read More »

Jurassic World is still several months away but it’s a pretty good bet it’ll have the best movie-themed website of 2015. Maybe of all time. The site has been up for a few weeks. Slowly but surely, it continues to update with new and cool additions. The basic idea is this isn’t a site for a movie. It’s pretending to be a site for the actual Jurassic World theme park that just happens to be seen in the movie. A park that finally figured out all the problems from the first few films and has been running quietly, and safely, for some time now.
We’ve been surfing the crap out of the awesome faux-theme park site and found our fifteen favorite things about it. Below, read all about them. Read More »

If you have a few minutes, start poking around the Jurassic World website. There is a ton of awesome content on there, including some very exciting teases of the mysterious, deadly Indominus Rex. We saw the hybrid dinosaur’s feet in the teaser trailer, some toys, and now he has an official website. On it, there’s a very frightening image of his teeth, a glimpse of his lair and more. Plus, there are some cool images of the full Jurassic World map. Check out all the Indominus Rex Jurassic World info below. Read More »

That image above is the new(ish) update for the Avengers: Age of Ultron logo, which comes from the film’s just-launched official site. At this point there’s not a lot to see at the new portal, but there is something to hear. The new Age of Ultron website is backed by a looped track of music that provides a great indicator of the tone of the film — there’s a mechanized underpinning to the cue, which starts with a slow, moody pulse before opening up to swells of synthesizers and insistent strings.

Back and forth we go with Iron Man 4. Robert Downey Jr. isn’t doing it, then he’s maybe doing it, then he’ll do it if Mel Gibson directs, then joked he’ll do it if Howard Stern directs. Honestly, there’s so much out there about the film, no one knows for sure what’s happening.
That was, until, Downey Jr. hit the couch on Ellen. When asked about Iron Man 4, Downey told the host that “Yes,” Iron Man 4 is happening.
Below, you can watch that video as well as read a ton of highlights from his recent AMA including teases that he’d love to cameo on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, updates on the development of Sherlock Holmes 3 and a Perry Mason film, possibly playing Doctor Who, the shift in marketing for The Judge, the likelihood of a Weird Science sequel, a few cryptic Avengers: Age of Ultron teases and the controversy of his Tropic Thunder character. Read the Robert Downey Jr AMA highlights below.
