FilmStruck App Reviews

  • Probably my favorite Streaming Service (update)

    By Role as
    Has lots of great movies by classic and art directors. App works great on the Apple TV and IPhone. Quality is great. My 2 gripes are the app feels a bit delayed because they have animations that in my opinion don't move quick enough so it feels like the app is thinking sometimes. Also there's no download for offline viewing like Netflix and Amazon have. So if they made the app feel more responsive and add downloading (ik there is a lot of factors that play into that and copyright stuff) but if that could become and added feature great app. Also there should be a section for a look forward to these later in the month or next month. So you don't have to Google what's coming and leaving the service. ****UPDATE***** Scrubbing while watching on Apple TV could use some work. Tends to be unresponsive or scrubs extreme lengths of time no matter how slow you try to scrub

    The app isn’t the greatest ever, but the content is. I imagine the kinks will get worked out over time. Never has it been this easy to see so many great films.
  • Great site

    As an avid film lover , film geek and a huge fan of Criterion Collection, I’ve been truly impressed with FilmStruck. You can count on me as a long time customer. I’m glad that FilmStruck has added a Leaving Soon tab as I’ve had several titles leave my queue and not even know it. If you could build upon that and put a date next to each title that will be leaving, that would be helpful. Also, perhaps add a Coming Soon tab so we can get an idea of what to look forward to. Thanks again
  • Broken UIs and failing playback

    The content is great as expected but the apps on iPhone and iPad are just poor, the Apple TV one is just terrible with poor controls and UI, scrolling is weird and you have to be very careful and precise to get where you want and playback is very finicky: don’t even touch the remote or you’re toast. After getting past that both Apple TV directly and Chromecast from my iPad fail to play with a generic “try again later”. Support (and the interface is broken there too, with multiple disconnections on the online chat) recommendation was to play with Chrome from a computer or reinstall the app on Apple TV. I had to do that three times to get through a 1h45m movie. Way too frustrating even if this is the only way to see many of these movies, can’t enjoy them this way, I am canceling my membership after two hours, no need to wait two weeks.

  • Must-have for Film Lovers

    FilmStruck is a great service that provides incredible content. Most streaming services have been culling their film libraries for their original shows, so anyone who considers themselves a film fan should have FilmStruck. The library is astounding, and the extras are always comprehensive and edifying. The app itself is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. Overall, totally worth the price of admission.
  • Incomplete & Half-hearted Showcase

    To people intending to subscribe to this service: beware. Filmstruck does not give users access to the full catalog of Criterion films. It is only a very partial offering of the entire catalog. I assume they no longer have the rights to stream Grand Illusion, Last Year at Marienbad, Kagemusha, Ran, Blood of the Poet, Pan’s Labyrinth, Devil’s Backbone, and countless others, though they do have Criterion editions of these. Visually, the bitrate and streaming quality are tolerable for small screens and the interface is quite nice & legible. Mechanically, it’s a different story. The search function is very simplistic and each film launch/description page lacks hyperlinks which would group all works that feature that specific director, actor, crew member, year, genre, etc. into a page of results. At least the films that they DO have are magnificent. Nevertheless, due to the number of holes where content & construction are concerned, this product is very incomplete. Therefore, I would advise against anyone wasting their money & energy on this until Filmstruck has its act together.
  • What happened???

    By heuerj88
    I used to use this so much more compared to other streaming services but for the last couple of months the app is borderline unusable on the Apple TV. If you scroll up or down, it's very sensitive. If you scroll left to right it's incredibly sluggish. If you are in the watchlist screen and you scroll up or down, it goes to random places that aren't even close to the gesture you made. It's borderline comical. I can't go through my watchlist without it bringing me back to the main sidebar every few seconds. This really needs to be fixed and have it optimized to run with the Apple TV remote.
  • Love the movies the app is terrible

    I was waiting for the day I could no longer get Criterion through Hulu. It came and I gave in and subscribed to FilmStruck. The movies are fine but a top shelf movie offering deserves a better app. It’s very clumsy to scroll though on the Apple TV and on the phone you can’t even paste in a password? Please upgrade! You’re making enough money.
