How can we improve Yahoo Entertainment

When I click "get showtimes" I get this trailer for a movie ... which I don't want to see. I want to see the show times. NO TRAILER!

When I click "get showtimes" I get this trailer for a movie ... which I don't want to see. I want to see the show times. NO TRAILER! I can't get rid of the **** thing! There's no X to close it. Escape does nothing. If I wanted to see the trailer I would have clicked the TRAILERS link ... not the show times link. JUST SHOW ME THE F*ing SHOW TIMES! This isn't rocket science!

    I feel your pain. Funny thing is that I can't really remember what straw on the camels back that set me off on my boycott of Yahoo a few months ago. Sunday I returned to Yahoo and already, really it is the little things that leads to great frustration, and by reading some reviews I am about to just forget Yahoo is even a option for me.

    No wonder they lost the search engine wars. Yahoo, you are a bunch of idiots. Find a new career.

    I agree ... too many ads and can not get what is offered ... why even have yahoo as home page if not a real home page ...?

    When I click "get showtimes" is shows just showtimes for 3 movies in the local theater. Where is the rest of showtimes for this theater?

    Wow, whoever made the changes that eliminated the old movie ******** listings should be fired. I want my favorite theaters with a list of the movies they are showing, and each movie should have a link to its description. Just go back to the way it was!!!!!!

    Please bring back the icon (in My Yahoo) that has 'my favorite theaters' so I can check show times. I want to put in the 5 or 6 theaters that I use to find show times. This site is NOWHERE NEAR as good as it used to be. PLEASE GO BACK & FIX IT!!! Your movie section is horrible - too many clips & trailers for the same movies. Also, what happened to your 'Upcoming movies'? It takes FOREVER to find this and other info now.

    Why all the ads? This is getting ridiculous. I am sick and tired of all these ads. Anytime I go to a website, I have to wait for the ads to remove from the screen. Most times I can't even get to the subject I want to read. Absolutely absurd.

    Longtime member but I am going to switch if this is not corrected. When I select get showtimes, I want to see showtimes not a ad, especially an ad that I cannot close right away. Very poor design to not take the user where he wants to go.

    I can't get the showtimes in my home town it shows me sunnyvale Ca I live Carson City NV SO your page sucks.

    The movies domain used to work simply and well. Now, it is just an array of unuseful eye candy.

    On top of that, It seems to be impossible to set a location dynamically. The "detect" function is meaningless; this always comes up with some zip code where my Internet provider operates out of. I want to set the zip code where I happen to live. How hard is that?????

    that's it; you force your opinion of trailers on us! the previous site that simply showed movies and show times was far superior to this. there has to be a better movie page out there. I would find it hard to believe there is a worse one.

    I could not get to the show times. One full page advertisement that just repeated. I will have to go to another site to find out about movies start times. I've been a Yahoo customer since 2000, but most of the "improvements" in the last year just are plain bad. Tech companies are suppose to have a bunch of smart people working for them. Quit breaking things that work just fine.

    So there is a "product feedback" admin posting here and giving us a link to a functional "get showtimes" page. My main gripe is that the only way to get the ******** page to work like it is supposed to, is to follow that specific link. This is STUPID. I've quit the browser, and manually clicked through (yahoo -> movies -> showtimes) and got back to the same annoying-advertisement screen with no option to search for showtimes. Fix your product, before your people leave in droves.
