IMDb is a popular online database that provides comprehensive information about movies, including cast and crew details, plot summaries, and user reviews. It allows users to rate and review films, making it a valuable resource for movie enthusiasts.
Of course, this is the biggest, the most well-known, and the best movie-reviewing website of all time. With hundreds of thousands of votes from random people and critics around the world, you can submit your rating out of ten stars and it contributes to the final rating. Many movies have over a million ratings and thousands of reviews. You can write your own review, but it is unlikely anyone will get to it as there are so many. The only problem with this website is that there are tens
2 Rotten Tomatoes
Rotten Tomatoes is a well-known movie review aggregator that collects reviews from both critics and audiences. It provides a unique "Tomatometer" rating that reflects the percentage of positive reviews a movie has received. The website also offers editorial content, interviews, and trailers to keep users updated on the latest film releases.
All I have to say is that this is a very inaccurate movie reviewing company. When you get all these depressed and grumpy critics together, the only movies that get good reviews are the depressed and grumpy ones. This is just a very inaccurate website with lots of problems, but they have received lots of praise and looking at the individual reviews, not the tomato meter will give you a better idea of the movie. And many of these depressed movie reviewers take some masterpiece like the godfather, Shawshank redemption, or Inception and say: "Not sad enough. Me actually feel good after seeing this so me give it 1 star". I mean, get a life, people! But the majority of reviewers on this site are good, so I started it off at #4
The best movie reviewing site by far. there are two review sections, for users and for experts
Some of their reviews are very questionable, but overall this website is ok.

It covers a wide range of genres and provides insightful perspectives on movies both new and old.
This recently deceased critic has detailed, accurate, and in-depth reviews of practically every movie. Very good critic, but as he is just one person you can't exactly say he's better than IMDb, which has over 10 million users.
4 Common Sense Media
Common Sense Media specializes in providing movie reviews and ratings from a family-friendly perspective. It focuses on analyzing content in films to help parents and guardians make informed decisions about what their children watch. The reviews address potential issues such as violence, language, and sexual content, making it a useful resource for families.
This website is pretty amazing. It only has one random person who gives the movie a rating out of five stars, with the average being three, but the rating is usually inaccurate, so the reviewing aspect of this website isn't great. However, they give a very accurate age rating and a ranking out of five for different categories that make it that high, such as violence, inappropriate stuff, etc., and users can give their own rating out of five stars and age rating on it, though it goes into a different category, so this is quite good.
this is extremely good. As a parent I have used this many times to see what my two sons can or can't watch and it has never let me down. Now, unlike other kids their age, they aren't exposed to innapropriate concepts and scenes in movies. Should be higher
