The great thing about the site is that before long you are learning more and more about the cinema in general because you are researching to find out which ..." Read review

The Hollywood Stock Exchange

Advantagesgreat game and its free

Disadvantagessite is a bit slow

"Another stock exchange simulation? Well, yes, but this is slightly different. Basically the Hollywood Stock Exchange gives you the chance to invest money (calm down - its only imaginary money) in movies. When you register (this only takes a couple of minutes) you are given $2 million Hollywood dollars. Using this money you can buy shares in movies, stars or options. Stock prices on movies are based on the estimated box office of a film in its first ..." Read review

Fun but Over Complex

AdvantagesFun, addictive

DisadvantagesOverly complex

The Movie Stock Exchange

AdvantagesGreat Site, Loadsa Gossip!!!!!!

Disadvantageswould be better if you could watch trailers on it

"...sent me the URL for hsx.com about a year ago, at first I was a bit dubious, basically it sounded a bit naff, that soon changed though when I clicked the link and landed on their homepage. Imagine, being able to buy shares (virtually) in some of the biggest films around, thats the general idea of this site. You buy virtual shares , bonds etc, in upcoming movies, my current choices are "First wives clubs 2" , "Independance day 2001" and "Star Wars- ..." Read review

Virtual Share Dealing

Advantagesclean, wholesome fun without risking money

Disadvantagesaddictive, could lose hours to research

"My friend introduced me to the Hollywood Stock Exchange only last week. The idea is simple - buy and sell stocks and shares in films, film stars and musicians. You are provided with $2 million to start you off, plus some free shares. I correctly chose some shares in Angelina Jolie - these free shares have made me $12,000 richer! (although I have lost a fair amount on Leo Dicaprio!) I still havent worked out much beyond the basics, though - as ..." Read review
