20080730-phoenix-az-duck-on-water-DSC07698Summary. Below are movie, video, and film information resources.

  • AOL Movies – “Movie showtimes, theaters, movie tickets, & everything movies – Moviefone”
  • Apple Movie Trailers – High definition movie previews that can be downloaded with QuickTime Pro.
  • Dove.org – Films that are most popular in theaters are typically those with a G, PG, or PG-13 rating. This is because most people don’t really like watching horror, violence, sex, and being exposed to vulgar language. The Dove Foundation is an organization offering a multi-faceted rating system for movies allowing viewers to avoid movies that have excessive and unnecessary violence, sex, horror, and vulgarity.
  • Google Movie Showtimes – Search theaters in your area by zip code.
  • IMDB.com – “The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) is a HUGE collection of movie information. We try to catalog every pertinent detail about a movie, from who was in it, to who made it, to trivia about it, to filming locations, and even where you can find reviews and fan sites on the web. We then do our best to present this information in a manner that is easy to search and access.”
  • Movies.com – “Movies.com is now part of the Fandango family. One of the Web’s top movie destinations, Fandango entertains and informs moviegoers with trailers, clips, celebrity interviews, photos, fan reviews and much more. Fandango offers moviegoers the ability to quickly select a film, plan where and when to see it, and skip the box office by guaranteeing tickets in advance for more than 15,000 movie screens. With Movies.com and Fandango, you’ll get the ultimate moviegoing experience. Be sure to sign up for your own Fandango account, as your Movies.com account will no longer be active.

We know you’ll be Fandangoing in no time!”
