Being a movie lover can be a fun, if expensive hobby to get engaged in. After all, few people are hot to drop $24 for two people to go to the movies only to end up watching a bad film. Even paying $3.99 for a rental can seem like a letdown when the movie is bad. When it’s good, however, a movie can touch you in ways that you may not have thought possible.
So, here’s a look at apps designed to help you find the best movies and weed out the claptrap, from the comfort of your iPhone, iPad or iTouch.
If you want to keep your eyes on what is coming up next, you should get the iTunes Movie Trailers app. It has all of the trailers for new feature films that you would find in the iTunes store, all rolled up into one neat location.
This app will let you see it all, before you buy the tickets.
If you want to be able to buy your tickets, or just to keep up to date on what a community of users (instead of a few critics) think about a feature film, then you want Fandango.
Just be careful what WiFi network you use when you enter your credit card information.
Another fun choice is IMDB for summaries and review information.
If you want show times for places that do not support Fandango, or if you just want to be able to look at the Rotten Tomatoes reviews, then you will find this app a good alternative for your movie going needs. The only thing it can’t do is order your popcorn.
There you have it, all the apps a film buff needs to be happy in this world.
