    Hey, I went over to your site and was expecting to see a crappy site when suddenly it got my attention, I must say that I'm an old dog and seen a lot of web sites in my time.

    First I would like to say that when the site opens up and all those movie posters appear with a search box over them me and a derp user understand what to do.
    second after the search, I typed in "Matrix" I got the search results fast and I actually clicked on a few to see. so anywho in my book of site reviews your site sure gets 9/10 why 9/10 you ask, well that's because nothing is perfect and something sure needs to be fixed that I don't see.. so 9/10.

    Good luck with your site!

    At first I thought "Oh No, another site with an entry page". But, then I realized it doesn't need anything else. It gets right to the point just like Google search, and it is done quite nicely. I also noticed that as the browser is resized the input box moves to the left- perfect for mobile users.

    I do have one worry, which perhaps other visitors to your site might have. That is, are any of the links potential malware threats? Is there a way to assure visitors that clicking any of the links for a given movie will not cause a drive-by download of nasty stuff- viruses, malware, rootkits, etc?

    The 3rd party links to stream the movies are quite safe and they all come from verified sources, though with everything, you should never download anything you are unaware of, thanks for the review!

    Am quite impressed with this site, getting to the point right away is much loved on the internet. Also, surprised that The Facts of Life did a reunion movie.

    Really simple to use! Some proper oldie goldie films on there :) Bookmarked! My only thing is the big orange rating box seems a clickable link, but goes nowhere? Other than that great job!

    One thing that came to mind would be if you could have a preview mode when you hovered over the movie.

    Perhaps you could pull information from IMDB through an api.

    Another thought was, what do the different colours of links mean. Are green ones more trusted. I may have missed this, if so, I apologize.

    I thought they might be trust indicators to let you know what you're getting into if you stream from the site.

    Well you said you wanted constructive criticism, so here it goes.
    First off, really great idea, realization (so far) - could have been better.
    Hear me out.
    I've noticed that you have some movie tiles stacked up on home page, predefined movies. Well, if they're already predefined (not random ones), just put better quality pics on it. Also, input field for search movies looks rather unimpressed, while, keep in mind, all of the site's focus is exactly on that button. I would tweak it a bit further if I were you.

    Next, when we search for a movie and result comes up. Make ratings appear all the time, not just on hover. Tweak it a bit further and change color of ratings background depending on the grade it got, or something similar. Just an idea. I like design of Genres, Rating, Release etc buttons. I prefer that style I mean.

    So we've chosen a movie. List looks pretty good, but put a logo of where the movie is hosted rather than coloring it depending on where it is. For instance, how it's here: http://www.btvguide.com/Grimm/Season-2/episode-20/watch-online (just clicked on something random to show you).

    I really don't put this much effort into making a post, but this site really has potential, and it would be a shame if you didn't put it to max.

    Good luck with your project.
    Cheers

    If you do something with the colours, definitely include a legend.

    You could use them as a quality indicator as well. That might be a good idea. Many steams are terrible, so having some way to tell what the quality is quickly might be cool.
