Movie Buff

DESCRIPTION:
With close to 2,000 questions, Movie Buff challenges your movie knowledge by presenting you with question after question of multiple choice trivia.


THE GOOD:
The fast loading time is great. Also, this app does one of my favorite things: I can play it while listening to my own music! This is a great game for killing time in the car or on the subway to work. It is simple, fun, and a good test of knowledge that expands its base of movie questions over the last eight decades of cinema. I received questions from as recent as 2009, and as dated as the 1930’s.

THE BAD:
While the questions varied by decade, the choice of actors did not. I understand that this is a lite version I am playing, but I was not the only one, according to iTunes, who had this complaint. It seemed as if the developers picked a few actors and directors, researched their Wikipedia or IMDB account, then inputted everything they found. Over 80% of my questions focused on the same 5 people. I hope this is not how the full version works, because I would be very unhappy and bored very quickly.

THE BOTTOM LINE:
A great time killer, this app is fast, lets you listen to your own music while you play, and helps build your movie trivia knowledge. However, a lack of variety severely hurts this game’s chances of success.
