Movie sites

The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas
www.universalpictures.com/flintstones
Movie Grade C+ Website Grade C+
Everybody must get ‘Stoned — at least, that’s how you’ll feel at this hyperkinetic yet tedious site. Scope out set photos, screensavers, and even the ”prehistoric slot machine.” Just don’t expect it to rock your world.

Gladiator
www.gladiator-thefilm.com
Movie Grade A- Website Grade B+
This big-budget spectacle is imperial indeed — and the site is just as impressive, with three versions of the trailer and flash cards that spotlight major characters. Thumbs up.

U-571
www.u-571.com
Movie Grade A- Website Grade A-
A naval-themed menu goes through stills, bios, set notes, and trailer to a slide show on wartime subs, a behind-the-scenes video, and an e-mail encoding/decoding function. Call it Enigmatic for the people.

The Virgin Suicides
www.virginsuicides.com
Movie Grade B- Website Grade A
Online teenage wasteland that’s even better than the movie: printable VS stationery, a ”This Is Suburbia” segment where readers can submit photos, and archived collages that link to more topics.

Where the Heart Is
www.wheretheheartismovie.com
Movie Grade D Website Grade B
Play a folksy online board game or consult ”Lexie’s Love Line,” sprinkled with words like darlin’ and hun. Perfect for credulous fans of the book — and too saccharine for anyone else.
