Positive review Great app for movie fans by anonym
This app quickly lets me track down a theater and check movie times, which have always been accurate. I especially like the Rotten Tomato scores being right there next to the film titles, and enjoy checking out full reviews by critics and regular viewers, especially after seeing a film to find out if others share my ideas about what I'd just seen. All quickly accessed through this app. You can even buy tickets via the app, though I've only done this once. All in all a great movie companion. 5/5
Negative review Why? by anonym
Why isn't the app called Rotten Tomatoes. This app is ad ridden junk that shouldn't have been made in the first place. This app wants you to buy tickets through its app for profit. Which has proven to get me charged extra money and also favors theatres over others. I can find my own theater thank you. NEVER TRUST FANDANGO. 1/5
Positive review Awesome for overall movie info, questionable for reviews by anonym
Critics are usually alittle harsh, especially with the movies they don't look at from the right perspective. Everyone tries to use the biggest words they can find to give an "intellectual review", even on the kids movies which isn't that serious. Overall though, a great app to look up movies and to get information about movies. 4/5
Positive review Awesomr by anonym
Great app that tells reviews about movies and upcoming movies. It has only crashed on me 1 time. The trailers are awesome. And I like how you get the option to search up movies that are coming up in the future, or you could search up actors and stuff. Great app! 4/5
Positive review Very useful by anonym
Everything in town or out of town and I want to find a movie or movie theater, I know I can trust flixer. It's information has never been wrong or misinformed for me. I have had it for years now, it become a common place app for me. 5/5
Neutral review by anonym
My closest theater no longer appears in this app. It used to, and it's still in business. Defeats the purpose, don't you think? I've reported it, but no response. 3/5
Positive review Very Useful App by anonym
The movies you want, at the times they are available, where showing. It works either manual with zip code, or location sensing. This like most apps are starting to feel sluggish with social media connectivity. But this one is still slick. 4/5
Positive review Love it by anonym
Only one I prefer to use. Quick and easy to use. Ive looked up showtimes while being on the go. Love that my top theaters appear up top for me. I dont have to search for them. And i can even watch the trailors right on here. Highly recommend 5/5
Positive review For every film fan. by anonym
Adverts on the screen can be annoying but still my first port of call for my cinema showtimes. Little niggle I've already rated app every time I go on it now asking me do I love it. Yes I do but sort out app so it knows I've rated already 4/5
Positive review Has it all. by anonym
Need to know what new movies are coming out this week? Which theatre is showing that movie you missed? Trailers of movies you didn't know existed, and those movies you can't wait to come out. Flixster has it all. It also has reviews, but any movie buff ignores those and checks it out for themselves. Lol. 5/5
Negative review BUGS PACKING??? by anonym
I updated and now I can't cast ANY of my movies to my chromecast. Everything is up to date. Ive spent the last 15 minutes trying to get my movie to play. I used my DISNEY app last night to watch my Disney movies, so I KNOW it is the Flixster Movie App and not my chromecast. Getting irritated. 1/5
Neutral review It was alot better by anonym
What happened over the last or so,anytime I try to browse a genre of movies under DVD or look up "flixsters top 100" nothing shows up. Tough to find ideas of what to watch. Hope u can fix that glitch. 3/5
Negative review Broken for last 2 updates by anonym
Great app but no idea what you've done to it. I have an LG G5 running 6.0.1 and it's crashing upon opening and unusable. Need to fix. 2/5
Negative review Can't log in by anonym
Great app but lots of bugs, most importantly it logs me off and when I try to log in again using Facebook it doesn't work. In order to log in again I have to uninstall and reinstall the app, which is absolutely ridiculous. Please fix because I love this app 1/5
Positive review Problems watching trailers by anonym
During every trailer it stops and says there's a problem with my network connection. This is the app I go to when I want to find out the times movies are showing. Also to search for upcoming trailers. 4/5
Positive review Flixter rocks! by anonym
It's easy to use. I really like the location sensing and the critical as well as audience ratings. I had to drop flixster on my last phone because of interface issues, but this newer version has been very robust. Cool. Rotten Tomatoes has become my go to review site. 5/5
Negative review Force Quits by anonym
I can't do anything involving location without the app force closing. Can only see my 2 local theaters, and I regularly travel to theaters more than 25 miles away. 1/5
Positive review Needs fixing by anonym
I've had API server error messages appearing for ages now! I've contacted developers and I was told to clear cache and restart. It hasn't worked, it seems to be a problem lots of people are having and it needs to be fixed. 4/5
Positive review Great Value by anonym
When I want to see a movie, I want to spend my money wisely and get great, thoughtful, visually stimulating entertainment. The rating system helps me choose from the overwhelming number of released movies by giving reviews compiled from a variety of respected sources. 5/5
Negative review Crashes Without Location Permission by anonym
I refuse to give this app permission to access my location any time it wants. And it crashes as result. Come on Flixster, you can do better than that! 1/5
Negative review Can't change location by anonym
I used to love this app, but for the past month it crashed every single time I try to change the location of where I'm located to search for theaters. I literally mean every single time. 100? of the time it crashes. I had to download fandango because I no longer can change my location when I'm in a different area. It's crazy this still hasn't been resolved. I have a nexus 6 with Android 7.0. I'll keep using fandango for now. Tired of the bugs 1/5
Positive review My favorite movie listing app by anonym
A must have for the avid movie fan. Rarely does a forced closure, and uses less memory than the other "F" app. Not happy, though, that Fandango took it over. Hate losing the variety of options of services. 5/5
Negative review Terrible service. Get digital movies elsewhere. by anonym
Flixster is a terrible service that plays politics and drops support on devices at random. Don't buy your digital movies here if you plan on having any sort of long term digital movie collection. I suggest Google, Amazon, or even Microsoft for that. 1/5
Positive review Use this every time to choose a movie by anonym
The Android app means I have this info at my fingertips when my husband suggests on the spur of the moment that we see a movie. Links to trailers and reviews give us, a good feel if we will both enjoy the film. 5/5
Positive review Changed a bit. by anonym
Flixster used to give a three month list of upcoming dvd releases. You would then be asked if you wanted to save them on Netflix. Now they don't go out as far or don't offer the save option. That is only for current releases. They used to be five-star plus, now they are four stars. 4/5
Negative review Was the best movie app around. by anonym
Downgraded from five stars to one. Ever since Fandango bought the app, it turned to crap. They use to have the theater number but now it just links to a defunct Fandango number. The show times are not often accurate as well. I now just Google it or IMBD it and then I wont have to give out my contact info.? 1/5
Positive review Great way to find Movies. by anonym
This is a great app for looking up movies that are upcoming. I also like how easy it is to find movie times at theaters nearby. The only drawback I do not like is that if I have a movie that I want to see it also will post it on my Facebook account. 4/5
Negative review Doesn't know how to program a javascript check box by anonym
I'm trying to log into your junk app on Amazon Fire, but I use my Facebook account to log in, doesn't work. So I go to create a Flixster account to log in and I can't because the javascriot can't recognize when a check box is marked. I'm so pissed by such a stupid, careless, ridiculous mistake. 1/5
Negative review Slowly getting better... by anonym
Crashes every time you start it on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Support is poor; automated, indifferent and ineffectual. Nothing to see here move along. A real shame used to be my go to app. 1/5
Negative review Edit...Does Not Show Local Independent by anonym
I once rated this with 5 stars. Now with only 2. This app stopped showing the local cineplex, that is not Regal, namely Battle Ground Cinema. And has never showed some smaller, excellent theaters, like Kiggins in downtown Vancouver, WA. 2/5
Positive review Fixter by anonym
This that is wonderful. The only problem I have run into is trying to go forward and fight figure out what time movie is showing on a different day. When I go to that day it will only show me one movie. Other than that I like having it on my phone and the ability to look up times and shows 5/5
Positive review by anonym
Since this update it does not show my local theatre which is Village Cinema in Morwell. It shows my favourite cinemas are in Melbourne which I have never been to. Please fix this as it is now useless for me. If this is fixed I will give you 5 stars as I found the old version was very helpful. 24/11/16. Thank you for adding my cinema back in. I have now given you your 5 stars back. 5/5
Positive review transferring all my movies into digital copies by anonym
Storing my ultraviolet collection in the cloud. But: no HD streaming, has a lot of problems with crashes in service and support. The hd doesn't work anymore. Why? Use to be cool, now all you can do is rate movies and wach trallors. 5/5
Positive review Almost worthy of perfection by anonym
The only flaw that keeps it from achieving a 5, is the poorness with which it identifies titles when you misspell them. Most of the websites such as Amazon are able to come up with a good suggestion for the tiles you intended to type in, but flixster's search engine needs you to be precise. Other than that, this site is perfection. It is one of the best things to happen for discerning movie viewers. I use to have to research reviews individually and create my own compilation of the potential value of a film 4/5
Negative review Recently the upcoming dvd section has not been getting updated.. by anonym
For example, Now You See Me 2 comes out on Monday 7th November 2016 but isn't on the app at all. A fair few other movies aren't listed either, Star Trek Beyond is out on 21st November again not listed, never had a problem with the app up until now, please keep the dvd section upto date! 2/5
Positive review Time Saver by anonym
Flixter makes movie going easy and simplistic. With the GPS locator, I can easily and quickly find the closest theaters within seconds. No matter where I am, I can be assured to locate any of the newest releases and also movies that have been out for a while. What I love most is that they give me all the showtimes so that I'm assured to make it to my showing with time to spare. Hands down the most useful and necessary app for all movie buffs. 5/5
Positive review Regularly reliable by anonym
We travel full time in an RV, so our location changes every couple weeks. But we love movies, so I rely on Flixster every time. It used to have a little trouble adapting to a new location, but seems they've fixed that. I don't need another movie app - this one does the job. 5/5
Positive review Great for frequent movie goers! by anonym
Gone are the days of calling the theater and listening to a loooong list of times before you get to your prospective movie! We've been using Movies by Flixster for quite a while now (at least a couple of years) and have only had trouble with the app a couple of times. Easy to navigate, great links, excellent synopses and trailers. Job well done! 4/5
Positive review The best movie App! by anonym
This is my go to for show times, and any info on upcoming movies. It's fast and easy to use! If you want to buy tix it will quickly redirect you to wherever you need to go! I've used apps for specific theater chains like cinemark, and half the time the show times aren't correct, same thing has happened with Fandango, but never flixster! 5/5
Positive review Full of extras by anonym
You can see trailers of what's currently playing or see several months in advance for up and coming movies. I don't use the Fandango ticket service but it does seem it would be convenient for some people. I definitely use the showtimes in my area, or for when I'm out of town. Definitely very convenient. And if there's something I find interesting, I can click on it and it will give me more info via more vids, pics, and cast. This app is great for both killing time or gathering information 5/5
