7 interesting entertainment-related websites
These are websites I like that are related to movies, TV shows, streaming video, etc.
Metacritic earlier was a major oversight of mine.
Rotten Tomatoes is the go-to movie-review aggregator, but Metacritic aggregates critics’ reviews of TV shows, video games and music, as well as movies.
Metacritic is owned by CBS Interactive.
Exstreamist is a website devoted to news and programming information about the major internet streaming video services, including Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and more.
It is serving the audience of cord-cutters and cord-nevers who prefer to get their video programming from on-demand streaming services rather than cable and broadcast TV.
Exstreamist leans more heavily towards news, while InstantWatcher.com is about programming (what’s new and popular on the streaming services).
What’s On Netflix
What’s On Netflix focuses on just what’s on and coming to the No. 1 internet television network.
It made a name for itself by listing the hundreds of subcategories of movies available on Netflix.
Screen Rant is a website for lovers of geek entertainment, namely sci-fi, fantasy, superhero and other genres. It’s probably best known for its movie and TV show list videos on YouTube.
Starlog Magazine – Internet Archive
Starlog magazine when I was in high school in the late 1970s. I don’t have any of those old science-fiction film magazines anymore, so it’s great that the Internet Archive has preserved issues of the fanzine online.

Thankfully some resourceful fans put together an Interactive Game of Thrones Map so you can track where characters have traveled and currently are in the story.
