I.M.D.B. on the I.P.H.O.N.E.

When I heard that the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) finally had its own iPhone app, I must admit, I was pretty unenthusiastic. There are already a ton of apps that searched the database, some of which I like quite a bit. But after trying out the official IMDB app, I’m hooked.

Sure, it performs the basic “search” functionality you’d expect. But it also offers local movie times, box office results, TV schedules, and other useful data, all in a VERY clean and well organized interface. Not only has this app replaced my other IMDB serach apps, but it may also bump Movies and Fandango off my iPhone’s home screen.

If you’re not famiar with IMDB, here’s a few links to get you started.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
