App of the Week: Flixster for iPhone

I don't get out to the movies as often as I used to. Oh, who am I kidding, I don't get out much at all anymore. Now that it involves childcare and transportation, I'm more discerning than ever. Life is too short for bad movies. I'm going to the movies with a friend tonight, so the first place I checked when deciding what to see was Flixster, a FREE app I recently downloaded.

Flixster on iPhone (from their website):
  • Watch high quality trailers and video clips for almost any movie
  • See the top box office, hot upcoming movies, and new DVD releases
  • Get info on any movie in theater or on DVD
  • Get local showtimes and buy tickets from theaters that sell tickets online
  • Read critic reviews from RottenTomatoes and user reviews from
  • Connect with Facebook to save your ratings and share them with your friends
  • View and manage your Netflix queue
  • Rent or buy movies on iTunes
I was pleasantly surprised to see my Canadian location was recognized! Do you know how often I sign up for something like this and find out it only recognizes U.S. locations? *sigh* I try not to feel like a leper. Anyway, I'll be going to see The Decendents tonight (Mmmmmmmm, Clooney!), and it's because Flixster let me know it is still playing at a theater near you. No, wait. It's playing at a theater near me.
