filmreelThe beta version of the Ultimate Movie Site is now live. The site offers all kinds of information about movies and relevant people, which it then blends together with news, video clips, original content, social networking capabilities, games, e-commerce, ads, and other features intended to make the whole thing one big film-loving community. I think it looks very promising and worth keeping an eye on.

Ultimate Movie Site gets its basic information from Baseline. It also has a partnership with Netflix that lets that service’s subscribers stream movies immediately without leaving UMS. Other partners include MovieTickets.com, Amazon, the Broadcast Film Critics Association, and the Facebook app Movie Degrees.
