If you don't need the full power of IMDB, Movies.io is a great way to look up basic information about any film. It provides a short synopsis, basic statistics, and it has a great interface that includes posters and trailers. It'll also autocomplete as you type if you're not sure of the movie's name.
And then there's one more thing: torrents. Along with all this information, you're provided with downloadable torrent files so you can grab a copy of the movie. Piracy issues aside, we wouldn't necessarily recommend grabbing torrents from trackers you don't know. What's cool about Movies.io has less to do with its ability to get you the film but how quickly and easily it provides you with the information you want to know. If you want to look up a film, it's a good way to go.
