Movie Tunes

Primarily showcasing well-known Hollywood fare, this site features audio clips, reviews, and artwork from hundreds of movie soundtracks. Good navigation provides different ways of browsing through the constantly updated directory; users can find Oscar winners, specific composers or family tunes. There’s also a news section and answers to that ever nagging question: movie trailers - what was that music?

Mr Showbiz

Another bigger-than-thou site about the business of showbiz. It's a broad church here with TV, movies and music all under one roof. The emphasis is on fun: there are plenty of biogs, pictures, games, quizzes and polls to keep the star-struck netizen amused. It's slick and easy to navigate, but don't expect an American site to look beyond its own navel.

Oh, The Humanity!

Reviews of the worst films ever made: Avenging Disco Godfather, Cannibal Women in the Avacado Jungle of Death, Leprechaun 4: In Space, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama... the list goes on. Excellent site to visit before going to the video store on a Saturday night, and they've even remembered to include Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. Lovely.

At first glance, this movie site from Carlton seems to offer no more than any other film site on the Web. However, it does contain a good searchable database of cinemas and releases in the UK, making it easy to find out what's on where. There are also basic news, releases, reviews and features sections and an amusing game, Allegedly, which claims to show who's romantically linked with whom in the showbiz world. Video reviews carry links to the IMVS online store, and there are audio and video clips too (not suitable for all systems).

Ravin' Maven of Classic Film

More a collection of online tributes than a site in itself, this lavish homage to the golden age of Hollywood is as stylish as it is comprehensive. Cagney, Bogart and Bacall are singled out for special treatment, along with lesser-lauded stars like Ronald Colman, Charles Boyer, John Garfield and William Powell. A wealth of images complement well-researched and well-written text.

For an overview of what's hot and what's not in arts and entertainment check out SceneOne. The reviews of the latest films, videos and books are witty, if sometimes too dependent on other sources. There's info on stand-up comedy, theatre and gigs across the UK, plus comprehensive TV and radio listings; even if there is little flexibility in how channels can be viewed.

This is the perfect site for Spacey obsessives with a few months to spare. To say this site offers an exhaustive look at Kev's career would be an understatement, with hundreds of photos, audio and video clips (Microsoft Netshow and Quick Time needed for some), and archive reviews. You also get the chance to eulogise about Kev and his many talents on the message board and in the chat room.

Star News

A London-based e-zine on all that's show-bizzy.

Star Wars: The Magic of Myth

The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum has stepped slightly outside its remit to bring you an exhibition dedicated to the Star Wars trilogy of films. With this interactive Website you can take a guide tour around the display cabinets of costumes, drawings and models for free via your computer screen. You'll need to download a few plug-ins to get the full experience, but it's definitely worth the effort. There's commentary by the voice of Darth Vader, James Earl Jones and a fairly credible attempt to raise the films to the status of classic myth. This is not a permanent exhibit, so visit it while you can.

Warner Bros

Lots of content in this mixed bag from the monolithic Warner Bros. Take a multimedia journey through the company's history, or check out its latest releases in film, video, TV and music. If the amount of stuff here overwhelms, then there are also a few games or the chat area for light relief. Only downside is some dodgy navigation and the cheap-sounding theme music that greets you on the home page. Requires Shockwave.
