I got another phone, restored it with an existing profile, and nearly everything was great.
Well, Siri was still laughably inept. But things that I wanted to work nearly all worked. Except for one very important app: IMDB. I’d created an account but when I logged in the handful of film ratings I thought I’d saved didn’t seem to come up. Time to change again. And this time, to WordPress.
I used to use flixster. Easy ratings access. Easy to read reviews. I kept rating movies I saw for a few years. But then the ads started. A few static ones at first. OK. Then an occasional video ad. Not so bad. But then ad after ad after ad all video. All very untargetted. And they made the app execrable.
That’s when I moved to use IMDB. Really handy for all that movie info and trailers and it has a neat rating, share, and review piece.
And then I swapped phones and for the first time I realised I did not know what account details I’d used for IMDB.
Trying email addresses got me a couple of recovered passwords but no past ratings.
I figured WordPress would be the best place to keep my ratings and my ramblings.
Expect my opinions on films.
