i just registered there for the free account and figured i would have some fun on there. what all can you do? make lists or do reviews or something? can you make your own page to where you can share it? just wondering what all i can do so i know whether or not to work on it.. i hate signing up for stuff thinking you can do certain things and work on it then find out it sucks and you cant do much of anything

I've created an account on IMDB.COM because it is a useful database that i can employ while doing some academic researches. But I myself rarely do any productive activities there relating the various function modules. I only love to read the movie reviews, as some of them are written by really knowledgeable audience or critiques who make their points from different angles. I'd like to see cinema as a window of the world, which provides materials for perception and debates, so it's interesting to draw some ideas from others' understanding and analysis.

i know you can make lists of movies on there on a free one.. but you cant do any reviews if its a free account? i thought maybe the paid accounts were for the people trying to use it as a resume for the biz

I have absolutely no idea! I never created an account there. I do like to go to that one site to look up movies though. They have better information than any other movie site, in my opinion. Hope you find what you're looking for.

One of the benefits for me is that being a member on IMDB gives me the opportunity to submit links as an external reviewer to my own film reviews on my film site. It certainly helps drive traffic to my site by doing this. Otherwise I really don't use my membership for anything else.
