Great app, needs some improvements!
So funny to see the comments in each movie. It is good to show a trailer to introduce the movie so that people can choose to continue to watch it or not. The introduction of the cast members is also placed under each movie to let people know more information about this movie. Just one button can switch between Chinese and English, very user friendly. Hope to increase the function of the bullet curtain in the future!
Problems after problems
With Covid all film festivals have gone virtual. I have attended other film festivals be a different platform earlier this year with no issues. The NYAFF chose this platform. First problem is you cannot cast from your iPhone to the computer to watch the movies. In order to watch from a TV do you need to meet very specific requirements such as certain smart TVs, Apple TV, certain generation Chromecast. Watching 52 films on my iPhone is not the most enjoyable experience.
There are tons of technical issues. I purchase it all access VIP past. It work for day one and then disappeared on day two wherein all films stated I need to make a purchase. The app freezes a lot so watching a movie means multiple interruptions while the data download. Another problem is the film festival host watch parties. But the watch parties are not available until the day after it actually occurs. That makes no sense. There has to be a better way.
Good attempt, but needs work
I love Chinese cinema, but as an app that has the purpose of being a bridge for bringing current Chinese cinema to folks in the US, the interface is sorely lacking.
While the top title selections are fairly current, there are no audio or subtitle options available. A majority of the films I’ve looked at so far feature only Chinese subtitles. The app itself is also formatted for phones, but not for tablets.
With ‘tickets’ (aka rentals) costing US$4.99 each, the app, in its current form, is unlikely to appeal to any but a marginal audience in the states who are Mandarin fluent or Chinese literate. And for those same folks options such as YouKu and iQIY currently provide better cinematic bang for the buck. Here’s hoping that the Smart Cinema USA app can implement more options and features in future updates.
