Who doesn’t like movies? Anyone …? I thought so…
I love movies that make you laugh , movies packed with action , movies that showcase new tech stuff , but I’m not really into moves that make you sad .
I used to watch almost all new releases but lately my priorities have changed and now I mostly watch videos with my son . For the rest of you who still go to every new movie Windows Live Messenger has a pretty cool bot that helps you find shows, theatres and show times near you.
The bot’s address is MovieScout@botmetro.net, just add it to your buddy list and start a conversation with it. As soon as you start the dialog it ask your zip code and then it will show a menu where you can find show times and movies.
For full instructions and more info go to the MovieScout’s site http://moviescout.msn.com/.
[Update: the bot only understands US zip codes]
Here is a a sample conversation I had with the bot this morning:
I can help you find movies near you. Please enter your zip code and we’ll get started. If you want to see a list of options, type "menu."
Type the name of the movie or tell me the type of movie you would like to see.
