“So far, Movie Genius seems to be exactly what I have been looking for – something to take the time-consuming tedium out of trying to find a movie every weekend, but even more importantly after watching it, not leave my husband and I looking at each other going, ‘Well, that was a complete waste of time.’ I’m still a new user, so only time will tell. But what has absolutely AMAZED me is how responsive the technical support is, as I ask questions and learn how to use the app. They answer quickly and their answers reflect that they actually READ the message carefully and completely – a rare find.”
