I’ve loved them since I was a kid. In fact, I thought I was Kimba when I was about 5 years old. I’ll get into that later, but now I want to talk about VideoHound’s Golden Movie Retriever a great new site my friend Sheila works on and told me about last week.
VideoHound’s Golden Movie Retriever (from Gale Cengage Learning – the publishers of the VideoHound catalog series) is a really awesome resource for info on movies. Aside from containing just about any movie I could think of, it has lots of great tools to locate your favorite movies.
You can browse or search by movie title, cast and credits, and even VideoHound lists (such as Evil Doctors, Exploding Fish Tanks, Farm Livin, Foreign Legion, etc.). This makes it very easy to find movies even if you don’t know titles but know actors or genre.
Each movie has a summary, release date, genre, subgenre, starring cast and VideoHound’s rating system (1-4 bones).
What I really like about VideoHound is that it allows users to review movies and rate them using paws (like the bones it’s 1-4). So for each movie, you can view other user reviews plus compare the VideoHound bone rating to the user paw rating. There aren’t many users yet, so it will be interesting to see this as more people join in.
So if you’re a movie lover like me, you’ll probably like VideoHound. Check it out.
My only complaint? The editor’s blog, Barks with a Bite doesn’t allow comments. I think it should, as it would stimulate conversations and debates about movies and reviews.
Besides for that, it’s a great site and I’m sure it will be a top destination soon for movie info.
