How can we improve Yahoo Entertainment

Bring back the old Yahoo Movies format. The current one is about as bad as an online version of Windows 8. Impossible to navigate.

I am forced to abandon Yahoo Movies as a source for movie showtimes, reviews and trailers if the page continues to have the horrible Windows 8 style tiled content that is without proper navigation. At least give users the option to use the old version instead. Are you all really trying to force users to another website?

    unusable interface - hire real geeks to do your web design.
    going to bing and google bye bye

    This, and all the other Yahoo products, is why I only go to Yahoo to read the headlines anymore, and even doing that is often impossible. Besides the high school dropouts they hire as writers, EVERY page in Yahoo either carpet bombs you with ads, locks up for no reason, or fails to show videos, clips, trailers, you name it. Time to get rid of the potato-heads and hire only those who want Yahoo to be the easiest, most information-providing, user-friendliest website in the WORLD.

    Whoever decided to change yahoo movies to this format, should be fired. It is the worst!!! (Un-usable)

    It use to be where Yahoo was easy fro me to find movies and show times by simply entering the date and zip code. Now, Yahoo has tried to get too cute resulting in an interface that is impossible to navigate. I am unable to get today's show times for American ****** in my zip code. There's all sorts of trailers but no way that I have found, for me to see what I need.

    On the Showtimes page I can see the movie times but what happened to linking the movie title to a page describing it? I can click on the time which takes me to a Fandamgo page where i can buy a ticket but still not find out what the movie is about. My work around is to highlight the title of the movie and right click then choose 'Search Google for "..."'. Google gives me a nice page with a description of the movie and a link to the trailer.

    This is funny to read almost. Yahoo Product Support standing up for this awful format. Do they not read the 1000s of comments here that all say the new format sucks? What's going on over there in San Jose? Are they using the kids in the daycare center to develop apps?

    Completely agree. I want a short synopsis and information at a glance. I don't want pictures, videos and a screen full of previews. Bad, bad design.

    I agree new site is useless. No reviews, no ratings, no previews - NO Point to site

    Seriously, the square panels are so huge that only a few of them fit on the screen. I can't find anything I'm looking for. This sucks

    What happened?? Yahoo movies used to list tons of trailers for the same movie, but now it's just a giant wall of random trailers from random movies. You cannot even find the trailer you want sometimes and end up seeing a "how it was made" trailer. I don't care to know if some actor hurt himself during a movie - just show me the real movie trailer. And no reviews now either? Please fix Yahoo Movies - at least back to the way it was.

    I can't agree more. I use to come to Yahoo movies for show times and reviews but the new design layout is absolutely horrible. Marissa Myers.. what are you thinking?

    I now use IMDB instead. http://www.imdb.com/

    Where's my favorite theaters????? You can't get to the theaters without going through all the ads. I have no problem with changes that make things easy, but yahoo's new changes makes it impossible to navigate. I have to go to another site to find movies.

    Yeah I am done with yahoo Movies page. It has completed its 6 year arc to complete non functionality. I don't need any patronizing suggestions on "how to set this or find that". I could do all that on 06 without a single instruction easily and quickly on simple intuition. Maybe I will look back in in a few months and tYahoo will have returned to the highly readable and informative page it was back in 06 when you could click current trailers and it arranged them automatically in a column then played all if you wanted in order! I MISS those days. One click took you to writing your own review and reading others and then one more click took you too ALL the current reviews all laid out in a grid of the major movie reviewers in all major newspapers. I don't know what yahoo has against functionality but they must HATE it. Seriously I am now completely DONE with Yahoo movies as this page is completely useless. I will use Harkins and Moviefone and the others. I used to go to them after Yahoo as Yahoo was the best in 05 or 06. Well Yahoo has something against being the best so much as they are no longer a 10th choice. Yahoo Movies is a no choice.
