How to Choose a Movie

Step 1: Pick the title of a movie you feel like watching in your head. For example my favorite movie of all time is Frida (the cinematography is gorgeous and I am sucker for biography type stuff). Or pick a favorite actor or director. (Director is my favorite way to search!)

Step 2: Go to http://www.imdb.com/, that is the Internet Movie Database. (Don't worry your going to love it!).

Step 3: Once you are at IMDB type the name of your movie into the search bar and click the "Go" button.

Step 4: IMDB will have a list of movies, actors, directors, or other items you are looking for. Click on the correct one.

Step 5: Every imaginable detail about this movie will be presented to you, including cast, trailers, quotes and more. If you scroll to the bottom of that page it will list recommendations. For example they recommend if you like Frida, you will enjoy:

Step 6: Go to the Mukwonago Community Library catalog and start requesting your movies.

Step 7 is Optional: Get some popcorn for your movie night!
