Alexa Tip: Getting Help Deciding Between Movies

Alexa Tip: Getting Help Deciding Between Movies

Movie night can be tough sometimes – particularly when you have to satisfy a diverse set of tastes. But, it gets even more difficult after you’ve narrowed it down to just a couple movies to watch. So, it usually boils down to the movie rating.

Would it be great to get instant movie rating information?

Alexa can help. IMDb (the Internet Movie Database) has long been a popular source for movie content, including crowd-sourced ratings. Did you know that IMDb is an Amazon company, and as such the entire IMDb database is integrated with Alexa?

Just ask Alexa for the IMDb rating of any move, like so…

“Alexa, what is the IMDb rating of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle?” 

Alexa will respond with the favorability rating, movie rating, how many user votes included in the ranking, and the popularity rank.
