MovieRatings for Windows 8 provides you with an intuitive interface from where you can get ratings of movies from all the popular movie rating websites like Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, TheMovieDb, and Douban.
In this manner you can get information about a movie before heading out to watch it or simply browse though the app to decide upon a movie you would like to watch. Along with the rating, the app shows you information about the movie, like: poster of movie, detail about the casts, clips related to the movie, review on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, and also the basic information about the movie like director, runtime, overview etc.
So if you are a movie buff, download and try out this app from the link provided at the bottom of the post. When you run MovieRatings for Windows 8 you will get the interface in front of you as shown in the screenshot below.
The main interface of the app displays movies and their ratings on the thumbnails as seen above. The movies that are shown in the app are divided into three categories, namely: box office, openings, and upcoming. This makes it easy to find out the movie that you are searching for. Also clicking on the tags will bring up all the movies in the category as shown below.
To view more information about a particular movie just click on this thumbnail and you will be presented with the information as shown below. The information includes detailed rating, information, overview, details about the cast etc.
If you want to see what the individual sites are saying, then simply click on the small square which is just located above the rating banner. This will open up the site inside the app as shown below in the screenshot. This way you can get more information from different rating sites. In this way you don’t have to launch the browser and search for the stuff which makes things really simple and straightforward.
The app is little buggy for now, the bugs that I have noticed are the poster of the movies are blurry and the clips related to the movie are not playing. Nonetheless, this is a good app that provides you with ratings and detailed information about a movie from different movie review websites and it helps you decide whether you want to watch a movie or not.
