The TMO Review Archive has been moved to its new home. The link along the left of this site has been updated. But for anyone who might have bookmarked the site, update your bookmarks to the new URL:


If anyone notices a page missing or linked improperly, let me know (via PM or in this thread). :)

Rileyman, I was curious if you ever tallied the total number of reviews from TMO? Also wondering about the tally for "Winning Movies". I see Josephkw had 8. Anyone have more than that? Perhaps this is not easy to find out ion which case never mind..

Riley can correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm guessing the answer is, sadly, no.

What he apparently did to create the archive was scrape the TMO website in the final days - automagically going from movie page to movie page, studio page to studio page, capturing the actual HTML of each page and tucking it away on another server. I just took a look at it on the server, and it's just a directories, containing either three movie html pages and associated thumbnails, or a subset of studio names based on the first two letters of the name - roughly two and a half gigs of files.

In theory I could download the whole thing and determine how many movies and how many studios are archived, but beyond that, it would have to be done manually, counting the reviews on each page. Volunteers?

Actually, everything got stored in an MS Access database. It's totally possible to do all sorts of counts, aggregates, statistics, etc.
