Are you are a film buff? There is good news for you if you want to keep track of the latest movies: twitMovie.
twitMovie aggregates information, opinion, and discussion from around the internet on both upcoming and recently released movies, letting you stay up to speed on all blockbusters.
The service brings in tweets from Twitter for each movie, and pairs the conversation with reviews, Netflix descriptions, related videos from YouTube, and applicable news surrounding the film.
For the movie-buff, tools to track, watch, and rate videos abound. But for the Twitter using movie fanatic, twitMovie provides a place to get both your screen and 140 character fix at the same time.
For the time being, it seems that twitMovie is monetizing with an Amazon Affiliate link on all their movie pages, letting users buy the movie that they are viewing. If they can find an audience, that is a relatively viable revenue method.
Of course, given their self selecting audience, advertisers representing upcoming films are going to flock to the site, once it hits scale. Below is a screenshot of a movie page, this one for 2012:
The website needs something of a design refresh, it feels nearly complete, but unfinished. Like a house where the furniture is still in the truck. If you love films, and read the occasional tweet, give twitMovie a shot. You can follow them on Twitter here.
