Google and movies

Everyone’s favorite all-purpose search engine has added another feature, “movie:” and here’s how it works:

  • movie: <title> – Entering this command in the Google search box will provide reviews and ratings for the film, such as in the case of Sky Captain, which provides a link to the full google review page as well as other similar films.
  • movie: <word(s) search> – If you enter in a word or phrase, the movie reviews themselves will be indexed, such as all reviews that contain the words “worst movie ever“.
  • movies: <zip code> – Enter in your zip code and the first link provided will take you to a list of the current showtimes for movies at theaters local to you.

Look for other new features currently being tested in Google’s technological playground at Google Labs.
