Seriously terrible picture quality for downloaded films - unwatchably bad. I have digital downloads for all the Harry Potter movies - firstly there is no way to download the 4K versions (despite this being what I purchased), and the HD versions just looks terrible - so many compression artefacts (blocky colours etc) - it's like stepping back 10+ years! It's the last time I purchase digital downloads.

Stay well clear of flixster, the digital age of movies means nothing to this company, but yet we all know this is the way forward and dvd will soon die a horrible death alongside lazer disc and vhs. I have spent hundreds of £ building my collection, only for Blinkbox and talk talk to give up on it and pass over to rakuten.tv to take over, which aided in the loss of many titles(to be fair to rakuten they have tried to resolve that issue and did so to my satisfaction) But it still left me short of many titles which I will never see again. Which leaves me with flixster which still has many titles which I lost on the transfer and although you are able to watch these titles via your ipad, iphone or similar tablet there is zero support for my laptop, unless I wish to buy a crappy chrome pad, not happening, so my other option would be projection.....but no flixster do not support this either! Having contacted flixster on many occasions I am fobbed off with the whole "Oh we are sorry this isn't available, maybe try our other supported devices" and then provide some crappy link to devices which I have already told them I do not have or something similar and just as skirting of the issue, which clearly shows they don't actually read the email! So my point being is AVOID FLIXSTER LIKE THE PLAGUE IF YOU CAN!!

Just redundant junk. I buy a physical copy but simply want to watch it on iTunes as well. I paid for the digital copy, so how hard can it be? Who is Flixter anyway? It's the sloppiest app I've ever seen.

My go to movie app for the last how many years, just destroyed by latest update. Bye bye flixter. Why do developers insist on this... it worked great,now it doesnt work at all. Might as well be IMDb for all the use it is and I already have IMDb.

Flixster used to be my go to app for movies playing and reviews - however since they stopped including Landmark Theaters in my area I have stopped using it. Why would I want to look up shows and movie times in my area on an app that only gives me partial information? I contacted them about this - but nothing. Good bye Flixster!
Review by Taejha Carnassale1 year ago
Flixster is limiting itself to Marcus theaters as far as 60 miles away and a couple of AMC. No Independent or Landmark theaters much closer. I'm done with Flixster.

Most of the free Digital Copies, that come with a Blu Ray move purchase, seem to end up being made available to you through Flixster. Unfortunately, the picture quality offered is very poor, resulting in a terrible viewing experience, if watched on anything larger than an iPad. Although this is probably the fault of the movie studios, rather than Flixster, it does put me off using Flixster to watch any Digital movies.

A lot of the best movies get downloaded to flixter, but the app needs internet. my 4 kids want to watch the movies while there in the car or on the plane on there iPads, but cant because they need internet, utterly uesless.

What happened?!?! Used to be my go to for movie tickets, latest dvd releases,watch trailers... Now it totally sucks! Someone needs to get fired because they have no idea as to what people want. Get a clue.
Review by Ruja1 year ago
Used it all the time. Now it sucks. Is useless for seeing what is in my local theaters. Am removing app.
Review by HAlex Pengu1 year ago
The most annoying to me is that the part of the app for "movies I want to see" is all messed up. Movies I haven't selected are there as well as movies I've already rated.
Review by Trinder Globuschutz1 year ago
Redeeming codes is the worst, always making me reset my password. It's time the movie industry stopped making people pay for digital and dvd copies by offering a cheaper alternative. Those who want the extras can pay for it.
Review by Schtief1 year ago
This app is now useless for looking for whats on in all local cinemas which was how I used it. Also the information, times of shows, ratings and synopsis for each film was easy to find. I don't undestand why the app has changed to make it completely unuseable for purpose. Some imbecile designed it. Maybe I have missed the point somewhere???
Review by Cbre1 year ago
Just useless, utter crap. How they are still in business when this is their front end is mystery, one star is one star too many
Review by Nstopczy1 year ago
Flixster? You were an app I used everyday and on the first screen of my phone. Now youre in a folder on the 3rd screen and I am looking for a suitable replacement app.
Not sure what drove you to such a bad change, but youd be wise to rethink it.
Review by Mufasil Arlickas1 year ago
This is the worst service on Earth ! It's never work always complaining about HDCP ! I would not recommand to anyone to use flixster!
Review by Kampe Sayedeyn1 year ago
Both Warner Brothers Digital copy and FlixterVideo are rip off. Make sure before buying any movies with digital copy, you read the label carefully. My kids love watching movies on iTunes but WB Digital Copy only works with FlixterVideo, Which sucks!
WB Digital Support Sucks the most! It is just an email service which sends you the same exact email no matter what you ask.

I loved Flixster and used it all the times to see what was showing at cinemas nearby

Review by Mahala1 year ago
This used to be such a versatile app. Within 2 clicks you could see what was on at your local cinema times and reviews. Now it is utterly useless. I have now deleted a much loved app
Review by Tamaja1 year ago
Who the hell is in charge of developing this app? Gone from From intuitive and easy to use to clunky and unreliable in an update. Lost a loyal user.
Review by Eredile1 year ago
What a horrible update. My theater doesnt show up. Cant make favorite theaters. No idea how to look at dvd releases and upcoming dvd releases. I was using Flixter daily. I dont use it any more.
Review by ReneeR1 year ago
I dislike the how the new movies are laid out, DVD and cinema. Specifically the DVDs. The history of release dates doesnt go back far enough and the new release dates do not flow well. I used Flixster multiple times per days as avid movie watchers... Im searching for the my new movie app unless Flixster fixes the problem soon.

What happened to this versatile app?? I used to use it all the time to find out what was showing in local theatres and now can't see a thing. Really disappointed and have removed the app. Is there anything anyone else is using to replace it?
