Trials and Tribulations

Just another WordPress.com weblog

If you've ever seen something in a movie that you wanted for yourself, ThingsYouSawInAMovie can help. Want the shoes a character was wearing? The car they were driving? ThingsYouSawInAMovie catalogs products used in films.

The editors at ThingsYouSawInAMovie pore over movies and search out the products seen in them. You can search by movie or simply browse the titles. Each movie has the identified items listed and when available a link to the item—the famous red dress in Resident Evil is identified, for example, but not linked to because it is no longer produced.

One notable oversight is the exclusion of user-submitted items, it seems like a ripe topic for heavy user participation. Hopefully they intend to include crowdsourced movie product identification in future versions.

Have a cool service for getting more out of your movie-watching experience? Let's hear about it in the comments.
