Fandango Wants My Movie Review…Not

I enjoy using Fandango to purchase my movie tickets. I find it much more efficient to pay for my tickets online and then stroll past the long lines at the box office, into the theater and up to the ATM-like machine to retrieve my tickets while the rest of the suckers customers are still standing a mile back in line.

The day after you see your movie, Fandango sends an e-mail asking if you’d like to post a review for their “community.” I have always ignored these requests in the past, but after seeing “The Dark Knight” this past Wednesday I thought I would go ahead and post my feelings about this film.

The problem is that reviews are limited to 1,000 characters. Not 1,000 words, but 1,000 characters! That’s roughly 200-225 words. My grocery list has more than 200 words. I looked at my review and it was 900 words (after I had edited out about 300) so I decided not to take the time to cut three-fourths of it to participate in the “community.”

Apparently, Fandango does not want anything more in-depth than, “Wow, that was the best movie ever.” or “Man, that movie sucked like a Hoover.”

But I’ll still get my tickets through them.
