    Just a better site. Not perfect, but better. IMDb today is a total disaster and they don't care for a second about user feedback.

    TMDb doesn't have dark mode, but I enabled it with an extension called Dark Reader.

    Other than that, it has some neat features that IMDb lacks.

    Only thing I miss is IMDb rating (which I'm familiar with).

    Same functionality, but not owned by Amazon and the developers and userbase are much closer.

    ratehouse is so good and so underrated. i'm willing to bet it'll become supremely popular once they get some marketing done.

    rate.house is the only website that I can find that has all the media types I need to track. Also has user discussions which IMDb regrettably removed.
