    "I've been using this app for years. Can't believe it took me so long to write a review. Must of slipped my mind. But hey let me tell you, this is a great app. I'm addicted to it. As someone who is obsessed with finding new stuff to watch or finding out who the actor in the film is that I can't quite remember where I'd seen them before. This is perfect. Easy to use and doesn't take up too much space. Thumbs up IMDB! "

    "Rotten Tomatoes is my favorite film review website. This website goes in def with it's reviews and they even compare multiple critics reviews in which has come in handy for me because normally when the majority of the critics gave positive reviews of a film I enjoyed the film myself when I watched the movie that got good ratings."

    "Letterboxd is helpful if you are trying to learn about film, because you can take a lot of notes about the films you watch. You can keep track of which films you have seen and keep a diary about your thoughts on the films as you watch them. You can learn about what other people think about different films by following them on Letterboxd. It would be more helpful if it were more popular and had more users to follow."
