Looking for recommendations for new movies? Not only can you ask your friendly neighborhood librarian, but you can turn to the web for recommendations from critics and the public. A few places to start looking:
Metacritic: a professional movie review aggregator that also features reviews of music, TV shows, and video games. Grades a work based on an aggregate score of 1 to 100 and places scores on bar graphs to allow for visual comparison. Also features a separate section for non-professional user reviews.
MRQE: Promotes itself as the “Internet's largest index of movie reviews" and also uses an aggregate score of 1 to 100. The site also catogorizes user reviews based on a A to F grade scale and displays the distribution of those reviews on a bar graph.
IMDB: An invaluable resource, this industry information clearinghouse is searchable by actor, director, year, and many others.
