Encouragement and advice


The content is appreciated and welcome but the method is still slightly lacking. Your competition has plenty more conveniences. I am not always able to resume watching from where I left off. Taking it one step further titles that I have started and not finished could appear as a reminder to continue where I left off before. Being available as a feature on gaming devices so to be accessible through tv screens and not just tablets and smartphones would be a huge relief and a welcomed encouragement to indulge in your provisions. I love Split Screen as a series and can easily find it while it is a category under the criterion collection; however it does not appear when I type “split screen” into search. This alone tells me that your search could use an upgrade. Being able to search for movies by actors, language, director and year would be nifty, but that is the least of my suggestions. I sincerely thank you for your time if you have made it this far. Happy new year!
Live long and prosper, or whatever other cliche you wish I had added...

Mostly excellent!


As a 74-year-old “film buff” I was totally delighted to discover FilmStruck!

I no longer watch “regular” TV - partly re: cost, partly re: lack of interest in subject matter. As a result I lost access to a favorite station - TCM.

FilmStruck has provided me access to so many movies that I loved watching while growing up, both in theaters then on B&W television. And it fits my budget!

My first FilmStruck viewing? “CASABLANCA”!
Have seen it oh so many times - enjoyed it anew with the perspective of 74 years of life, loves, family, sorrows and joys!

I love the app, but also hope for an improvement or two. Perhaps the limitations arise from watching on iPad rather than laptop (?) but - for example, “Curse of the Cat People” listed closed captions option but I found no way to access them.

This movie also listed “commentary”: There WERE host comment bits, but not a movie-long commentary (like on DVD’s), at least none that I could find. I hope to see an upgrade in site navigation options.

On the up-side, of late I have found myself searching hundreds of titles on Netflix and having difficulty sparking interest in ANY of them. (Price of being non-current at my age?😉) On FilmStruck I immediately added a dozen titles to my watch list!

All-in-all I find FilmStruck to be a DEFINITE 🌟🌟🌟🌟 site!
I hope it will succeed and continue to add to its already excellent library of classic films!

Best films of all time via a much improved app


Why didn't I download this app long ago? I read the reviews, that's why. I'm happy to report that the bugs are for the most part gone. So now I'm just going to love on this app for a minute here so bear with me. FilmStruck has become one of my regular go-to's for streaming, and I've been getting an education in cinema as well as great entertainment -- Rossellini, Godard, Renoir, Welles (even the obscure ones!), etc. Last night I watched Renoir's "The French Cancan" (1955, in brilliant color) which left me floating -- the whole thing is a brilliant confection, with a final 15 minutes of pure euphoria; we forget sometimes how high the masters tower over most of today's auteurs. Here is where they reside. FilmStruck includes the great Criterion Collection. So glad I finally gave it a try!
