Google has a new movie search engine … their come-on is a bit of a bait and switch, though–on Google’s main page there is the little teaser : “New! Get ready for the Oscars. Find showtimes for nominated films.” So
I clicked. I was actually hoping to see a page that would give you
showtimes ONLY for Oscar-nominated films, but no, it’s just a general
listing for all films. The “Nominated” part you have to figure out
yourself. Disappointing. But as a general showtimes service I guess
it’s okay. They also are starting to add reviews to the entries, so I
guess Google is trying to encroach on Rotten Tomatoes‘ market now too. But Google, you are no Rotten Tomato.
