Film Geek Android Apps

May 17, 2011

I went to film school for both undergraduate and graduate school. I have degrees in both production and critical studies. Here are some movie apps that I enjoy.

IMDb Movies & TV

This is the mobile app for IMDb – the “internet movie database”. It has a database of over 1.5 million movie and TV titles, and over 3.2 million people that work or have worked in film (including myself). Also trailers, user reviews, critic reviews, quotes, trivia, showtimes, oscar winners and lots of charts and graphs. Recommend.


Fandango Movies

This free app has everything you need to make a choice about what movie to see, make theater choices, get showtimes, and buy tickets. Recommend.


Kodak Cinema Tools

If you are making a movie – this free app can help! It has a depth of field calculator and a contact button which will summon a Kodak rep to help answer any film questions you might have.



This free app from Netflix lets you stream any of their “watch instantly” movies to your phone if you have an account. Recommend.


Movie Stream

This app costs ~US$4.00 and streams movies from hundreds of sites to your Android phone. Very easy to use.
