INTRODUCING: Updated IMDb.com homepage experience

  • Announcement
  • Updated 7 hours ago


The new homepage is designed to help IMDb customers find what to watch right now, tonight, or this weekend — and where to find the best movies and TV shows for them, whether in theaters, on TV, or across a variety of streaming services (including IMDb TV, Prime Video, HBO, Starz, Showtime, Acorn TV, and PBS). Customers will benefit from a new recommendation engine that leverages implicit and explicit behavior to offer relevant and timely suggestions.

All (bad) jokes aside, has anyone stopped to consider that this is done on purpose? It is a well-known fact in psychology that a frustrated "customer" (or user) becomes a buyer. Many people buy in order to relieve stress. The more you frustrate the users, the more likely they are to buy from you. This makes no sense: intelligent people would not buy from an outfit that causes them grief, but people react to stress by buying useless things, and "the closer the better". 

It might sound like a conspiracy theory but if you know anything about psychology of buyers, this makes sense. This also explains why the internet has taken a consistent nose-dive since circa 2005, when everything worked pretty well. It's been downhill ever since SFAIR. 

For example, I'm on Chromebook. I have no option to download any other browser. Chrome that was so user-friendly has become the most frustrating browser ever. Remember when you typed a wrong address in your URL bar? All you had to do was mouse over the wrong query when it popped up in the drop box, and use the X at right to delete it forever. That is now forever gone. Why? To frustrate the user! 

There are so many examples of what is wrong with the internet this reply would be too long. I can think about my email provider where nothing works right. Remember when Yahoo was so user-friendly? They done away with everything we loved, didn't they go bankrupt? Yet that didn't cause them to restore the critical features we needed (I long abandoned Yahoo, email and all). Etc. 

So it's worth it to lose users because it results in sales for them all. I see IMDb hasn't reverted back in spite of complaints. Recently Google changed its look so extremely, that many of us went to different browser, after complaining at Google support. They recently removed the offensive icons in the search results, so that was a partial "win" for those of us who complained. As long as people keep purchasing from the offending websites, the bottom line is they will continue to annoy us. 

Food for thought; for what it's worth, if you can find a way to agree and all implement the 'no-buy' en masses, you might get what you want. Not as long as the new design = frustrated users who turn into buyers. JMO, from my continuous observations.

Appraiser1, it's a slippery territory, as psychology fails to explain many consumerist moments. I once noticed in a local diner that when they put out a calm radio station through their speakers they get more customers, people overall eat more and are satisfied, with everyone's stress levels reducing greatly. I suggested them to put that radio station more often just as a friendly advice and it worked wonders. 

So, stress necessarily is not making us buying more, but, of course, online shopping and real-life buying are slightly different and might use radically and drastically different approaches.

Oh, I agree with you, Nikolay! 1000%! And I am amazed that in this day and age, they complied with your request and sided with sanity and gave you the intelligent choice, because I have noticed the opposite: music blaring that makes me exit stores presto. And there are also different levels of stress. You don't want to be stressed out while eating, so relaxing music = more customers... except for those restaurants where people enjoy the music and linger for hours. I can't recall the device I have heard they employed to get them to leave, now (And it wouldn't surprise me if it were loud music!) 
But those people (website makers, among others) go by the majority of results. As I said, intelligent people (like us) ---truncated by GS! (I was saying we don't respond like the masses but masses [of average intelligence] response is what internet businesses seek.)

EDITED: what happened to the rest of my post? Sorry! It was there when I hit submit. I'm too tired to attempt to even rewrite this. The gist of it was that the majority of people do react and shop when stressed out and if the website makers have read studies or have tested this and it results in increased sales, they have no icentive to revert back, and I further added that I have no idea how to trigger reverse pyschology here, which would be needed to get the opposite result. Sadly we depend on compliant masses and by definition, the sheeple aren't the brightest lightbulb in the shed, so getting compliance is likely a moot point, sorry. :-/

Hi! Nikolay Yeriomin (Mykola Yeromin), Champion 
  
Once upon a time...
restaurants & diners etc had a Jukebox
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jukebox
music-playing device, usually a coin-operated machine,
that will play a patron's selection from self-contained media...
Jukeboxes were most popular from the 1940s through the mid-1960s,
particularly during the 1950s...
The invention of the portable radio in the 1950s
and the portable cassette tape deck in the 1960s
were key factors in the decline of the jukebox...

I would've assumed that jukeboxes fell out of favor because of people growing less inclined to want to hear the same style of music, as the genres started doing more diverging than converging. However, it makes sense that the jukebox would have be the main attraction to a diner, to begin with, until most people were afforded ways to listen to music at home. By the way, jukeboxes were merely substitutes for actual bands, which could not be available in every tavern, diner or restaurant.

Whenever I went to my local diner in the past, each table had its own personal jukebox, where you could get three songs for a quarter. Not any more. Now when I go to the diner, all the mini-jukeboxes are no longer there and it is easy to see why. Looking around the diner, all I see are young people with headphones, listening to music on their phones. It's disgusting and impersonal and an insult to the waitress, who has to keep repeating what she has to say until they take off their damn earbuds. Just the type of people IMDb now wants as "customers". This is what makes me so sad. And don't try telling me that's the way of the world,  or "progress", because that's not the way my world works. I'm "old fashioned" and I will stay that way until my final day! I still open doors for women, say "excuse me" before interrupting someone, and tip my fedora, nothing like today's generation. And I'm proud of who I am.

Juke Boxes were mostly in Bars an Eateries.
They ARE still in bars. They are updated. They actually have 10s of thousands of selections because of a direct internet connection. Way better than the jukes of old.
And if you think that a set of headphones can beat out the bass that your whole body feels from a woofer coming from that jukebox then you need to leave your computer and visit a bar! I even go to a bowling alley that has a jukebox! When the customers pick the music they are happier!

ACT_1, jukeboxes are rather rare and exotic in Post-Soviet countries: they were extremely uncommon in Soviet Union. Some are encountered in thematic diners. 

Fred Adelman, I can relate to that, although it's not as common in Post-Soviet countries: for some reason we prefer to hear what actually happens (or maybe we're just bein cautious. I seldom use headphones in public in general (except for public transportation and in cases of large trips - music makes them somewhat more bareable), firstly because the kind of headphones I use are huge; secondly because despite I hear rather well even with music on, I don't want to be rude to people; thirdly because headphones are usually needed to phase out the outer world and you don't want that in any kind of public place: it requires at least some degree of attention to surroundings. Sometimes I hear and remember too much about people, but that's a downside of my memory and attention to detail, not hearing.

 Nikolay: I never wear headphones in public, only at the gym and never when driving, because it is illegal where I live to do so. Yet I see many people doing it, which is why there are so many accidents. I do not find the need to phase out the outer world; I actually embrace it. I just wish IMDb would understand that there are many people like that in the world and quit catering to the young generation. I actually had one teen say to me that he doesn't watch black & white films because "Real life is in color, not black and white! Why should I watch a film that's not in color?" I wanted to punch him squarely in the face! This is who IMDb is catering to with this new homepage.

Has anyone but me noticed that IMDb's new homepage looks nearly identical to Amazon Prime's Video homepage? It uses the same type side-scrolling with low-res images as IMDb does. This is no coincidence, folks, which is why you should take your complaints directly to Amazon and tell them that we were never "customers" on IMDb, we were "readers" and "users". IMDb is not a video streaming service!

Images on the home page are of very poor quality, grainy and hurt my eyes at times. When you click into a movie page, the image is fine and sharp quality. My iPhone app doesn't have the issue, so i'm guessing there's a setting somewhere that I'm missing?

This has ruined what IMDB was meant to be. You basically turned a superb information resource into a gossip magazine. I've been using IMDB pretty much daily for 20+ years, my frequency of use declined when you removed the message boards, and now this... poor form IMDB. Bye bye.

The new homepage is TERRIBLE. I can't find anything in the utter chaotic disaster that is the landing page. Coming soon doesn't even seem to be there anymore, and when it was there were like 3 thumbnails and no sense of timeline. I loved the old view with the Coming soon, Now in theaters lists on the right to make them easy to find. 

This is utter garbage.

Is a Black screen. It never loads its content.

What have you done, I'm was spending more than a hour a day on your site. Do you think everyone wants heavie homepages with lots of images and videos?

It's all about information, not the best graphics. It's all about navigation speed, not waiting and lag. It's all about a simple overview, not searching for you entry.

I'm a big fan for 18 years, you've one of the best content sites there is, but please get back to the old home page. I

Dear IMDb Editors,

During the previous version of the website, I used to visit the page more than 10 times a day and that too mostly because of the writing content and Poll Section at the bottom of the page.

Now all those are gone. I was just wondering what is the percentage drop of your regular website visit from the last two weeks?

Anyway, these days I am using the IMDb Android app because that still shows the writing content and poll section.

Just a request, if you guys really want to keep the current format of the website, please bring back the Poll Section at the bottom of the page at least.

Thank you.

DC

I think polls were the remaining survivors of the old days where you had the trivia question, the quote of the day etc... if it wasn't for the community poll makers formed, we might not even have had them back after one year and half (yes, we went on making polls for nothing during 18 months)

Meanwhile we had lost many, many contributors who'd been making polls for years and years... then it was the end of the message boards and we've lost other members... still, we formed a sort of solid core that maintained the poll effort and saw the decline of poll visibility (from page center to the bottom and polls that stayed many days in the homepage at the expenses of other valuable suggestions)

I'm not surprised by these changes and I guess we should be prepared for polls' disappearance, or maybe timely polls will be occasional instances but that's it. And we'll probably lose contributors... and that's it... it's sad but what can we do?

I reserve deeper thoughts about the new homepage to myself, but it kinda bothers me that with actors, the search option basically is "Celebs". Now, I have nothing against celebrities, since celebrities can be actors and actors can be celebrities (and many people in IMDb are really neither, since people are people). But the word "actor" feels a bit more professional to me.

I second this. It's rather childish. Apart from that, it's also not true. Most people in the database are not celebrities.

^^ true. I'm in my 40's now, I admit I don't know all the modern "actors" but looking through the first 10 to 20 news about celebrities, I don't think I need to (or would want to) know about them either. TV celebrities, talk show celebrities, celebrity chefs (yes, that's a thing now)  famous for the sake of being famous celebrities, and of course there's the token kardashian and the token royalty person in there somewhere. I'm interested in news about actors, directors and people in the movie industry, not the gossip column nobodies.

As quite a few people mentioned, this new look is obviously Amazon's doing and I believe it's beyond the power of imdb to do anything about it, it looks like an order from above. I don't know Col Needham personally, but he always struck me as a movie lover first and foremost, instead of a businessman. I'm sure he'd have responded sooner or later, if there was anything he could do about it.

If Col Needham is really a movie lover, shouldn't he at least speak out about this matter? I mean, remaining silent is not the way to go. He should say something. His silence make me believe that Amazon made everyone sign non-disclosure contracts. Their continued silence is not helping this matter, but they probably believe that silence is golden. It's not. I do know that they are reading this thread.

He seems to have become more distant from the forum ever since the
Jiminy Cricket appeal-by-proxy incident, and that fictional character reference bit is just a placeholder for an actual person who shares the same initials. When the executive producers offer a diplomatic solution to a grievance therewith, it is best not to escalate the tensions with them on top of snubbing the offer, otherwise it should be time to part ways.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled New page design....anyone else thinking of quitting the site?.

So i am really not loving the new page layout.  Looking up videos and news is particularly painful if its not in the very top 4-5 stories.  I thought the whole point of IMDb is that it is a database of movies and entertainment and the people who work in them, and somewhere you can get updates and news about this stuff.  I mean it's in the title.  This new format feels like its designed for people with the attention span of a goldfish or its just become an online Netflix/Amazon guide.  I used to use IMDb every day but i think i'll stop if its going to stay like this.

Adding "News" is definitely a step in the good direction. However, everything is still way too big - I have to sit 2 meters from my screen to see everything in the right proportion. And please add the featured poll back to the home page, because currently there is none on the (desktop) home page and even when it's under "Editors' picks" it is barely visible. On the IMDb app the poll hasn't been updated for weeks now. Could you at least update the poll there please?

Question #1:

Why are the IMDb desktop and mobile homepage showing different results?

For example, the poll(s) shown on the desktop homepage and the poll displayed on the mobile app are different.


Question #2:

What's the difference between "Editors' picks" and "IMDb Picks"?

I ask this because the poll displayed on the mobile app is the same poll posted on the IMDb Picks page.

I suspect the answer to Q1 is that the app doesn't do the same thing as the desktop site. I've heard of plenty of other differences. Even the m.imdb.com version isn't identical to the imdb.com version.

Q2: maybe nothing. See my speculation on Q1.

Secondly, this change is too major a  shift from what everyone is used to. You might have pulled it off if you had changed a little bit here and a little bit there, over time... but no.

This is bad. Please change it back!!!

The television system has always been about the ability to relay, transmit, receive and display movies (changing pictures), though. The general topic of "movies" is not limited to cinema or the nickelodeon system.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Old homepage look.

Hi,

is there an option to choose the old familiar IMDB homepage look instead of this terrible, dreadful and annoying new one (believe me, I'm being easy)?

Thanks!

Obviously, the choice is not ours to make. It never was.
