The history of the largest movie database is connected with the ‘Usenet’. Previously, users shared their opinions regarding the movies, actors, serials and what not on rec.arts.movies. The ‘FAQ’ page contained thousands of questions and responses to them. Thus, the database was created on the 17th of October, 1990 on the basis of these questions.
