    Not bad made =]
    Nice fresh colours, work well.

    A few comments though, if you'll permit me to do so :D

    The header is too big for no apparent reason. I'd try and shrink it down height wise. Also, try increasing the logo size and moving it so the left is inline vertically with the first button. You could try moving the search bar over to the right aswell, the same distance in from the right as the logo is from the left.

    The two green gradients you've got as headers for the different content areas... IMO the gradien'ts too much. Try and make the gradients more subtle, like you've done in the header. I may even be tempted to suggest you try a solid colour like in the footer bar, as it could work well. As for the size... These headers may also be too tall. Try making them smaller height wise, and work on the positioning of the text in the headers. I'd put them maybe 25pixels in from the left, and keep the left one all onto one line. Lastly, I'm not sure the red "2" in the header works, it's very hard on the eyes. I'd use the same orange as on the left header if you want to highlight the 2.

    Good luck, and keep it up :D

    Totally agree with audiogex
    atm it feels like my eyes are being overwhelmed
    i think the colors could work, but with currently only a blank green header
    it's just way too much

    seems a little plain, not that simple doesn't work, but with how the tarantino header and sin city header look
    they both just give it a bad effect (they content looks good, pretty much like imdb lol, but the headers and large amounts of green make it appear very plain and simple)

    it's a nice start, but i think it could just use a few changes
    nice work!

    hey heres some crits, overal its a good template but needs quite some work

    the spacing in the navi is way to much move the buttons closer and move them to the left side
    redo the green bars on the template be abit more original ( a gradient from green to dark green isn't original)
    movie meter text in the header should be bigger ( it is the the title of the site )
    add some more details to the header

    Also might wanna try touching up the colors abit, they don't fit together as good as they could.

    I like it, though for some reason it reminds me of a torrent website.

    Gotta like the layout, interesting color scheme! I like it.
    It has the space for alot of information for one screenfull, no scrolling (which is excellent!)
    Easy to read, nice color balance.

    Possible reduce the height of the header, though: It wastes too much space. Bring it down by ~50px, and I'll give it a 9/10!

    Right now, 8/10. Good job!
