Flixster's recent changes are EXACTLY what I needed to push me over the edge and get me to transfer everything to the IMDB! Warner Brothers, you've ruined your own investment so perfectly I think it might have been on purpose. Congratulations!

I couldnt agree more with you on this. I am having a terrible time and the movies I did have working now won't because I have to activate with Ultraviolet and they cant get my account activated. So now the movies I had won't work anymore because of Ultraviolet not being activated. This is more of a headache than it should be and I have lost movies in the process.

I wholeheartedly agree. I loved the Movies app on Facebook, but it has just become unusable.

The app on Facebook doesn't show me anything worthwhile - there are no longer ratings etc. and the fun stuff (the never ending movie quiz and the friend compatibility quiz) has gone. I can't view my profile or account on the Facebook Flixster app.

Similarly, the Rotten Tomatoes app page takes me through to the Rotten Tomatoes website. This is full of obtrusive ads that come up over the content. Have banner ads, sure - but why this rubbish? It's just annoying and discourages people from using the site again. Likewise, the Rotten Tomatoes page gives a page not found error for my account and profile. It tells me how many movies I've reviewed, but again won't let me see what they are!

I don't like the Facebook integration, either. Whilst it is a nice idea, I was never asked whether I want to share my data with Rotten Tomatoes or let the page know that I was signed into Facebook. There is a major privacy issue here.

Definitely makes changing over to IMDB seem the sensible option!

I agree. It's appalling and impossible to use. I've wasted hours on this - and for what? A digital copy that I can't - as advertised - "Watch wherever I go".

WB and Flixster - the sooner you remove yourselves from this fiasco the better.

Warner Bros = Lehman Bros - no question!
