Flickster Movie – Movie Database is an online database of information related to films. On default, the user will be redirected to the filmy news page. We are able to get the news-data from google news API(third-party). A user can search for a particular movie on successful login to the flickster movie account. If a user doesn’t have an account in flickster-movie, he is free to sign-up into the flickster movie account. A user can view the details of genre, cast, production, IMDB ratings, the plot of a particular movie through OMDB API(third-party). A user can give his honest review of a particular movie based on his personal experience.

Users can also view the other reviews given by respective users. Flickster movie allows the user to either edit the review or delete the review. On a successful logout, it will redirect to the news section.
