There are sports fanatics and restaurant connoisseurs…but most people have stars in their eyes about that silver screen. You might be a serious movie buff- one who anxiously waits in line to see the midnight release every weekend- or just a causal moviegoer. Whatever the case may be, there’s an app for every movie enthusiast out there.
The options are numerous. Some apps help with dates and times of showings, others give you reviews and even put your own expert critiques out there. Still others let you binge watch trailers or buy tickets then and there... so you can skip that annoying line and get straight to munching on popcorn.
Drinks and snacks at the ready? Then you're ready to digest our top 5 Android apps every film buff should download!
Movies by Flixster
Flixster is a complete and up-to-date application that any film buff should be proud to have in their collection. It will let you know which films are being shown right now at cinemas near you, and also let you take a look at the trailers and the times that work best for you. Find information about movie reviews, Flixster users, and what movies your friends are seeing.
An essential app with a sleek and clean design, that lets you purchase movie tickets and share your opinion afterwards.
Are you someone who refuses to go to a movie without reading a review first? Well, this app was made for you! First Day Fan lets you read reviews about any movie you could possibly desire, with filters like genre, year, and popularity.
If there is a particular movie you are interested in, you can have the app send you notifications as new reviews are published. You can create your own cinephile community and even throw your own two cents in- write your own reviews (up to 200 characters).
Don’t miss this app! CineTrailer is a simple and easy to use app that has news, trailers, info about theaters, and upcoming premieres. Super helpful as it lets you search trailers using distinct filters (new, in theaters, coming soon, or home video). The player works swimmingly and it has juicy info about each movie.
We’re probably looking at the most complete app that exists for movies. Movie Roll shells out a ton of information about each movie or TV show out there. You can personalize alerts, access YouTube, and consult pages dedicated to film reviews. But wait there’s more! You can also watch trailers, check out actor bios, and compare your opinion through social media.
IMDb Cine & TV: The biggest movie database in one little app
We’d be crazy to not include one of the biggest movie databases on the Internet. We’re talking, of course, about IMDb.
If you already use the web version to find all the information you could possible need about a movie, you should download the app. Immediately. Especially if you’re someone who, after poking around the web, always returns to this page. You can see all the movies by a certain director, which movies your favorite actress has been in, the awards they won, etc…
