I've used movies.com to get movie info and listings for a long time. In fact I don't know if i have used anything else. I don't get why they don't have a mobile optimized version of their site instead of having a 3rd party code software for each and every cellphone out there. But thats how they seem to want to handle accessing their information via mobile devices. So with that said I'm looking for an alternative that is just as good as using movies.com for info and listings that I can use on my 8330. Maybe even in addition to that a what's new in the movies each week. Though this probably would be a part of whatever way I get access to movie info and listings.
Things I do most on movies.com is read the synopsis of the movies, and not as much watch trailers, and the most check movies times and places. I also like to pull up movie info for movies out on DVD at times. But that can alway be done other ways. If all of these can do at least the stuff from the 1st sentence then its just a matter of seeing which one feels the best.
Looks like yahoo movies, infospace, and live messenger will probably work for me. The few that are apps indicate that my device is not supported which is no big deal. I can always use the space for other apps

I used to use Fandango, but then for some reason (out of nowhere) the pages took forever to load. Then as a result would make my BB superslow till I did a battery pull. I still don't know what the cause of this is..
I just realized the reason some of those apps posted about here indicated i couldn't get it was because i was using opera to visit the pages. i just loaded mypoynt in the BB browser and downloaded it. So far it looks like a decent app. I also assume the web version of infospace is the same as the BB app? m.tellme.com tells me there isn't a version for my device and allows me to sign up to get a txt when it is. Strange that if it works on one BB why wouldn't it work on others.
mypoint beta has issues all the time with listings for me.... and tell me runs really slow, and I have tons of program memory free. I use Live Search and/or Fandango. And if I need to buy tickets I use Pocket Express since you can buy tickets through there application... if you purchased it.
