Please recommend good movie site other than IMDB

Hi

I don't really like IMDB. I don't like their layout and I cannot log in to my account anymore. I tried to contact them and can't find a contact info. Just their stupid online help. No option to reset password like on other sites. Their capcha or whatever it is called are extremely hard to read, I have to refresh many times until I can read one. I do not like this site at all. Plus anytime I like a movie I go there and the ratings are always low.
I saw a great sci-fi movie yesterday on Netflix and it only has a 6 out of 10. The ratings are never high there.
Can anyone recommend a similar(s) website?

Thxs

Pat

I've never created an IMDB account. Is that even necessary?

It's not necessary, but I find it handy as it lets me keep track of movies I've watched (since I try to remember to rate them).

Yeah, I try to rate everything I watch at IMDb. Itíll probably go down or delete the database someday, like they did their message boards, so I should maintain my list and ratings elsewhere. But I check IMDb for cast and trailers and other info anyway, so figure I might as well make the single click to rate stuff I watch.

Re: Please recommend good movie site other than IMDB

I used to regularly write reviews for IMDB, but they changed their format and made it harder, so I've slowed down, doing only a handful every year--and really short ones--whereas I used to submit several dozen every year. I contribute pictures from my extensive collection of stills and screen captures, but only when the films/TV shows in question are lacking in pictures.

I have the "old" IMDB on my desktop, so it's easier for me to use. But the one that shows up on my phone is extremely difficult to use and very frustrating.

I use trakt.tv

Not that great for digging up info on the movies, but pretty good for keeping up with what you've watched. Has a brief synopsis, usually links to a trailer, has a list of the cast, and has reviews/comments.

IMDb got so heavy with motion and video on their site that I started using Wikipedia for cast info and such, though I still go back to IMDb for some stud like release dates and box office numbers.

I don't use it. But I know some software like PLEX uses it to pull movie/show info.
