Google Unveils 'Movie Search' Feature

The search market is witnessing intense competition as of late, with leading players unveiling new, specialized search products in an effort to win the market share. This past week, Google announced the release of its newest searching component "Google Movie Search" which will allow users the opportunity to use local data, such as a zip code, city or state, to find show times within local theaters.

The new search function will also help users to find other film-related information, such as film titles, actors, directors, and reviews. So if you ever get stuck to the point where you can not remember the name of a film, let's say the one where Tom Hanks made friends with a volleyball, simply search Google for "movie: Tom Hanks talking to a volleyball" and Google will tell you that the movie your referring to is Cast Away.

Also, if you're looking for some rental recommendations try searching Google with the types of movies that interest you. For instance, try "movie: awesome car chase" or "movie: good chick flick" and Google will not only provide you options matching your query, but also rate them according to written reviews they've received.

Personally, I love this new feature. I find it to be a great resource for Google users and movie lovers alike. I will rate it 4 out of 5 stars and I am sure that Sisco and Ebert (or Roper if you will) would have given it 2 thumbs way up!
