    the latter is more full featured, but slower to launch and more complex to navigate through. I think I like Box Office.

    It's tough. I like the BoxOffice icon (for some reason that matters to me), and the rotten tomato ratings. Movies.app's icon is horrible, and the interface isn't quite as seamless but I like the ability to watch trailers and get more movie info.

    I hope to see an update to BoxOffice to add some functionality, and then I can remove Movie.app.

    Ha! Yeah, I downloaded Box Office because of the icon and the interface, too. I fully expect that an even better app will come out in the next few weeks, though.

    yeah, the trailers are something I'd really like on Box Office. But I just find it so much cleaner and more intuitive than Movies that I think I'm going to go with Box Office for now. Really, the info I want is usually just where and when.

    Box Office is less taps to get from the movies to the times. I also like the Rottentomatoes ratings right in the movie list. The trailers are nice in movies.app, but the BoxOffice dev said he's working on adding trailers right now

    I like box office better. Less clicks and I have it set to the one theater I go to all the time.

    Great little app. No more searching on yahoo or google.

    I like both, but box office only shows 3 of the 15+ theaters in my area!

    Would be cool if you could actually click thru to read the reviews in addition to seeing the scores.

    Movies definitely. Not as good looking but it actually works.
