Like you, we’re really into movies here. One of our favorite pastimes (and maybe yours, too) is predicting box-office grosses. But not only that, we also like to compare movies against similar films.

Tracking down dependable data isn’t too hard, but when you want to compare box-office earnings, tabbing between browser windows to see the results can be a pain. But there’s an easy way to compare every last detail of your favorite movies…from their running time to DVD release dates to awards received – all in Google.

Comparing Blockbusters
Follow these easy steps when you want a cool side-by-side comparison of flicks:

Step 1: First, you’ll need to be using Google Chrome as a web browser.
Step 2: In the search field, type in the name of the first movie, then type “vs,” and then enter the name of the movie you want to compare it to.
Step 3: Be careful how you enter the movie title. Make sure to type the full name of the movie. For example, “LEGO Movie” won’t work, but “The LEGO Movie” will. Also, be sure to include the “vs” separating the two titles.

Comparing Film Camps
It’s nearly as easy to find a great summer film camp, if you know what to look for. Because summer’s a great time to channel a child’s interest in movies into what could be the start of a lucrative career. If your kid or teen wants to learn to make movies, you should check into Digital Media Academy’s celebrated filmmaking tech camps.

DMA film courses cover almost every aspect of filmmaking, students get an introduction to filmmaking, where students create their own short film, with them playing the key production roles of the shoot. Students get to see the filmmaking process from the inside and emerge with a cool film they can share and take pride in. It could be the start of something big.
