Hot on the heels of its Campaign Finance API, the New York Times has officially announced the Movie Reviews API, which gives third-party developers access to "over 22,000 New York Times movie reviews going all the way back to 1924" (and we've updated our Movie Review API profile with the updated details).
As the year comes to a close and holiday season looms, many of us look forward to taking a few days off to take a break from all of our hard work and relax. What better way to unwind this holiday season than by catching up on all of the movies you missed this year? You're in luck as we've gotten many great mashups this year that let you watch movies and trailers, browse your Netflix queue (you do still subscribe to Netflix right?) and share with your friends. Popular APIs for these mashups include Rotten Tomatoes, YouTube and Netflix. So without further ado, kick off your shoes, grab some popcorn and give these movie mashups a try.
The Open Spreety API sticks a TV and a TV guide in your program. According to the API webpage, you can have users search for shows by title, genre, and by the decade the show was produced, among other criteria. Despite all the pay walls and cable costs, Open Spreety says there is so much free content out there from the mainstream media that viewers can get lost in the forest of choices.
