For information specific to movies, imdb wins. I use wikipedia more though, because I'm not just looking up info about movies, I like to look things up about other things too.

Wikipedia. IMDB's "facts" are often unreliable.

Wikipedia. Relible and detailed.

Wikipedia is not reliable because you can type other stuff in.

Wikipedia often copies imdb's trivia facts.

It's easy to say bullsh-t in both.

They're both reliable, for internet information. That isn't saying much.

Wikipedia is edited too easily. IMDb is more reliable.
