Yahoo! Movies Makeover

Category: Showcase

Yahoo! Movies seems to have had a make over (or I have been on another planet recently):

Yahoo! Movies Makeover

It matches the recent makeovers of Yahoo! TV and the main homepage, consisting of common widgets such as carrousels from the world of YUI.

There is also a fair amount of Flash to do some of the heavy lifting.

All of the features from the old Y!Movies seem to be intact, so there will probably not be an outcry like we had with Y!TV.

It doesn’t seem to remember my zip like the old site did, and it seems that mostly the front page has the revamp. The show-times sections all look the same as before.

I just helped launch Y! Movies in Malaysia, and I think its a pretty good effort, although the US version definitely has more perks. Pretty cool.

Being a loyal movies.yahoo.com (basically i’m the guy that actually checks this thing starting 2 pm friday and finishes around 5pm), i have to say i’m a little disappointed. like tv.yahoo.com it feels heavy; i feel the first pause as the browser gets ready to deliver functionality.

to me that’s a huge negative. lucky for yahoo, i am loyal, so i expect them to trim it down somewhat; i really don’t care so much for the ajax-y stuff. it’s exciting when it’s useful not when it’s a bell&whistle.
