I’ve been addicted to the IMDB (Internet Movie Database) forever. Way back in the day, companies used to sell movie database programs that were like CD-ROM encyclopedias of film (Microsoft had one, as I recall). IMDB made things like that pretty much obsolete. We constantly reference it in my household:
Me: Oh hey, isn’t that the guy who played Palpatine in the Star Wars movies?
Hubby: No way. Wow, he looks so young! That can’t be the same guy.
Me: I’m telling you that’s him. Ian…Ian….
Hubby: Ian McDiarmid?
Hubby: I don’t know…I’m going to go look it up on IMDB.
(A short time later I “win” because it is Ian in whatever the heck we were watching.)
Anyway, I read on Digg this morning that IMDB has changed their page layouts, and I have to admit I find it rather jarring. This is probably because I’m just to used to the old way things looked. I don’t know if I like the new design or not. What do you think? Check out an actor (above) or a film, and judge for yourself.
