* Internet Movie Database (IMDb)
The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) is an online database of information related to films, television programs, and video games. This includes actors, production crew personnel, and fictional characters featured in these three visual entertainment media. IMDb was launched on October 17, 1990, and in 1998 was acquired by As of April 27, 2013, IMDb had 2,503,783 titles (includes episodes) and 5,192,493 personalities in its database as well as 43 million registered users. The website has an Alexa rank of 48.

* Ranking (IMDb Top 10)
The IMDb Top 10 is intended to be a listing of the top 'rated' 250 films, based on ratings by the registered users of the website using the methods described. Only non-documentary theatrical releases running at least forty-five minutes with over 25,000 ratings are considered; all other products are ineligible. Also, the 'top 10' rating is based on only the ratings of "regular voters".  In addition to other weightings, the top 250 films are also based on a weighted rating formula referred to in actuarial science as a credibility formula. This label arises because a statistic is taken to be more credible the greater the number of individual pieces of information; in this case from eligible users who submit ratings. IMDb uses the following formula to calculate the weighted rating:

 = weighted rating
 = average for the movie as a number from 0 to 10 (mean) = (Rating)  = number of votes for the movie = (votes)
 = minimum votes required to be listed in the Top 250 (currently 25,000)  = the mean vote across the whole report (currently 7.1)
