Movie Database & User Reviews – Summary

This project is the very first PHP application that I developed. It was my graduation project during a web developer course at the bfi Institute in 2019.

The Frontend

The content of the Frontend is dynamically rendered from the DB. The Front-Page serves as an index/overview-page of the film database with all the thumbnails and links to the film details. Each FilmDetail-Page is rendered trough the primary key in the film table, which is transferred from the film link to the database query using $ _GET. It contains the film synopsis and a review form through which registered users can submit ratings (1-5) and write reviews. Next, there is a user register and login form for users to log in and signup and finally, a contact form enabling website visitors to get in touch with the website owner.

The Backend

of the application takes care of the administration of the DB and the content. 

It consists of:

  • A film administrative table in which you can add, edit new films or delete old ones
  • A table for the management of user-rights
  • A censor table to delete inappropriate comments/reviews
