finding film reviews and criticisms

Database Searching

Tip:  If you are getting too many results from a search

  • Try putting quotation marks around the title, for example:

"North By Northwest" instead of North By Northwest.

  • Try adding the director's last name to the search, for example:

"North By Northwest" AND Hitchcock

 

Tip:  If you are getting too few results from a search

  • Try searching only part of the title, for example:

If the exact movie title is  Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, then try searching for just the main title Dr. Strangelove

  • Try leaving out punctuation - especially semicolons, periods, and commas, for example

Instead of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb try Dr Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
