Fireback Movies is a new kind of movie trivia game in which opponents battle with their movie knowledge. All plays are movie names, and movies are connected by actors. You play a movie connected to mine, then I play one connected to yours. Opponents fire movies back and forth getting points for each play. It may take seven or more connected movies to reach 100 points and win the game.
Fireback Movies is simple to understand but challenging and entertaining. Traditional trivia games ask random lists of trivia questions. In Fireback Movies, each player dynamically creates the challenge posed to the opponent on each turn. For example, if your opponent plays Boogie Nights, you could fire back Almost Famous (connected by Philip Seymour Hoffman.) There are limitless possibilities of finding one degree connections between movies using any actor.
Fireback Movies is a casual game where players can take their turns when they want. Fireback Movies checks your connections by referencing its proprietary database of 250,000 movies. It knows when there is more than one connection even when you do not. When players take their turns, the app gives immediate feedback to support the option for rapid-fire play. The actors who connect movies are shown after each play.
Unlike most trivia games, Fireback Movies lets you show your personality. In Fireback Movies, players play movies they are familiar with. As opponents reveal their movie knowledge, you learn about them. A game against one friend is a different experience from one against another.
Plays in Fireback Movies are strategic. Some connected movies score more points than others. If you can play a movie with different actor connections from the last play, it is called a Change Connection and gets the most bonus points. Bonus points are also awarded for multiple actor connections and fast play.
When players are stumped in Fireback Movies, they can use lifelines or pass. Lifelines are popular movies connected by popular actors that keep the game fun for both players. Fireback Movies is a freemium full-featured game with no limitations requiring purchases or advantages for people to "pay to win."

Ratings and Reviews
Fast n' fun.
Definitely a must for any cinephile. You can keep a list of faves, but more importantly you can keep a list of "to see" movies. I haven't played that much and I forget a lot of info at times so I'm hoping this app will keep my synapses firing. It's doing a good job so far.
Fun to Play
Easy to use app. Game is fun to play and matchup helps keep the action going when friends are offline. I'd like to see a way to communicate with opponents.
Need better quality control
Brando was not in Superman Returns and Bill Hader was not in Rush Hour 2. Also Rush Hour 1 and 2 did not share nearly the entire cast. Great idea but needs serious tweaking to be great!
