Fandango.com is a great online destination for looking up movie tickets and show times.  However, there is more to this cyber-space that meets the eye.  Need to know what movies are opening this weekend?  Curious as to how the new Indiana Jones trailer looks?  Wondering what average moviegoers thought of Speed Racer? Look no further.  Fandango has you covered.

Fandango is comprised of the following sections:

  • Show times and tickets - Why wait in line?
  • Movies - Your place for news, a list of what’s coming this weekend and select from a list of trailers for upcoming as well as current films.
  • Games - Choose from a list of fantastic games to play such as: mah jongg and spider solitaire.
  • Fan Buzz - Search the top ten movies as rated by Fandango fans and even blog about your favorites.
  • Gift Certificates - Fandango makes it easy to give the gift of movies.

One of my favorite features is the “find movie” drop down menu at the top of the page.  Place your mouse over this and you will get a complete list of current and upcoming movies to choose from.  Click on any movie and you have easy and instant access to an overview of the film, show times at your local theater, movie details, fan reviews, photo stills and much more.  Fandango will put all of the latest movie information at your fingertips.  Never again will you be at a loss for what to see this weekend and when your favorite summer blockbuster starts.  You can even avoid those long lines. Fandango is truly a great site for any movie buff.
