Who was that actor in that film made in Jeju? These sites have movie answers

The official Korean Film Commission site provides an introduction to all aspects of the Korean film industry as well as the latest industry news. The site also lists box office figures and production costs and has an extensive database of facts and figures relating to the Korean movie enterprise. It is a well done and professional site, but it is not updated frequently.

For those of you interested in the history of Korean film this is the site to check out. This site has everything you need to know about Korean film, from statistics to detailed analyses of the last few decades of Korean moviemaking. There is also a discussion forum where cinephiles can debate subjects ranging from the latest thriller to hit theaters to the hottest celebrity romances to fill the tabloids.

Devoted to classic movies, this site eschews the latest Hollywood blockbusters in favor of films from the 1930s to the 1980s. The site is well put together, although including “Crocodile Dundee” on a “classic” movie list raises questions.

The ultimate in celluloid geekery. All those movie mishaps that most people miss or could care less about are lovingly catalogued here. You can submit your own movie mistake and hope it gets verified and uploaded by the site’s administrators. Sit back and laugh at some of Hollywood’s blunders.

This site provides detailed information about famous Hollywood directors, as well as critics’ opinions of the directors and their movies. Not as professional as some of the other sites, but the writers’ enthusiasm makes for an entertaining read.

This is the ultimate Web stop for the movie nerd in all of us.
This site provides movie quotes, sounds and memorabilia as well as casts, profiles and reviews. The main feature of this site is it is easy to navigate, with all the information in alphabetical order.
