I love movies. I don’t mean that I love movies the way every college student ever said they loved movies; I mean I truly love movies. For a long time, I wrote screenplays as a hobby (my spare time to do that seems to continuously disappear these days). I have a personal collection encompassing hundreds and hundreds of movies and TV shows. For me, movies are what I do to relax, unwind, and creatively excite myself.

I find there’s a truckload of films I want to see, though, and they’re all very difficult to remember. I used to keep this insane list in Notes.app back in the day. It was ridiculous, and it’s not a wonder it didn’t help me at all. I tried using IMDB’s list function for a while, but the service didn’t blow me away and I found IMDB was more a pain than anything else. ToDoMovies, though, really got me excited. It looked like it solved my problem: how do you keep tracks of the movies you want to see? Read on to find out whether or not ToDoMovies is the answer.

So, it’s Friday night and you and your significant other want to go see a movie. As soon as this decision is made, there’s almost always the follow-up question: “What should we go see?” There are a lot of resources at your disposal to help make this decision, including Movies by Flixster, Fandango, IMDb, Metacritic, iTunes Movie Trailers or Wigglehop (a personal favorite).

Most of these apps provide some type of rating aggregator that gives you a snapshot of what movie critics and fans think about a flick, which is extremely useful information when deciding whether or not to see a movie. While these services are great, wouldn’t it be better if you took the three major movie score aggregators (i.e. Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and IMDb) and combined their scores to make one “master” rating? Well, with Moviegram, you can. (more…)

I am a movie fanatic. There is not a week when I don’t watch at least one movie I haven’t seen before. Not to speak of all the TV shows I am following. While watching, I often have “geek moments” – those are times when I go “Oh, what’s that actor’s name?” or “What was the other recent movie this actress starred in?”

Before the time of iPhone and iPad, I had to move over to my Mac and fire up IMDB in Safari to check it out. With the IMDB app for iPad I can remain slouching on my couch and get all the information I desire. The comforts of the 21st century.
