Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Never forget to watch a movie

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 by Andrew Conkling

If you're having a hard time finding some weekend entertainment, why not watch a movie? This week's tip, shared by jchirschy, offers a way to recall that one movie you really wanted to check out:

Bob can't decide what to watch

Every time I go to rent a DVD, it is the same question: what is the movie I absolutely wanted to watch? It is all the more difficult when we, my wife and I, need to make this choice. To solve that problem, we created a shared list between our accounts called "toWatch".

Every time she or I watch a trailer or read a synopsis from, that is worth watching, we share this page by email. In the to: field, I put my Remember The Milk email address, I add #towatch to the subject and all is done. Automatically, IMDB adds the link to the email body.

That way, the list toWatch is growing in our two accounts. The note contains the link to the right page. The synopsis or the trailer is always only in one or two clicks away. It works well with the mobile version, a Mac or a PC.
