Empire of Movies is a movie forum website in which you can discuss and give your review about a film.

Why Empire of Movie Exists

Empire of Movies' mission is to connect people who want to discuss and give reviews of films they watched. We also provide a complete database about a movie the first time they are requested in a matter of seconds and will be updated from time to time.

Aim

We hope to make the exchange of opinion about films to be accessible and user-friendly to everybody through a well-organized forum. Moreover, We hope that the users can easily access the updates by adding our bot to their Telegram app.
