Last year I wrote a website for myself (https://medium.com/@mubashariqba...) to track movies that were coming out. I was tired of the junk on most movie sites that made it really difficult to track what movies were being released. A few other people expressed an interest in using the website, so I decided to open it up to everyone. Since I have an interest in automation (https://willrobotstakemyjob.com/) I wanted to see if I could fully automate the operation of the website. I think I've managed to do this. The content is collected via API, website changes are shared to social media, and emails are delivered weekly to newsletter subscribers all automatically. I wrote more about how I did this here: https://medium.com/makesideproje...

Great launch @mubashariqbal! Even though I'm not a big movie-goer in theaters, I always find myself missing when things are released thereafter. I could certainly see using something like this to keep an eye on movies that pique my interest and make a notation to see. I actually used to used something like this (I think it was called SideReel) to keep track of new TV episodes in college. These trackers are way underrated -- in an age where we're inundated with media to consume, sometimes a simple, useful tool like this beats out all the other more complicated user experiences. Awesome job!

@adammarx13 Thanks Adam. Feel the same way, and keeping things simple and uncluttered is very important for me.

Nice idea! Any plans to make it available for countries other than the US?

@shylands Thanks Steven. If there is any interest the plan is to deploy different instances of the website with a different TLD that would focus on other locations. To meet the mission of simplicity and easy of use, I wanted to avoid cluttering the site with different countries, etc.

I would recommend having a same page trailer button, so that I don't have to keep going back and forth to watch trailers for the movies listed. Otherwise, I like the simplicity of it.

@denesgrof Never heard of that before, but no it's all new custom developed with an eye to automation.
