    iTunes Movie Trailers

    by Apple

    There are other apps that do the same thing as iTunes trailers, but I prefer this one because of its sleek interface and HD presentation. You can also hop directly from the trailer to a listing of theaters near you that are showing the film and be sent straight to the theater website to buy tickets. It doesn't get much easier than that.

    Film Study

    by Richard Joffray

    This app is for those really serious about their film analysis. Film Study lets you watch movies from the public domain (which includes Charlie Chaplin and Murnau films) or import your own from iTunes. From there, you can take notes while the movie is playing, pinpointing the frame of interest. While taking notes, the app also brings up a useful tag list for filmic concepts like "Deep Space" and "Frontality." After you're done with your notes, you can email them to yourself and Film Study pulls screencaps and timestamps to accompany your notes for future reference.

    Location Scout

    by Jeff Gilfelt

    It's hard to play it cool when you accidentally drive by famous filming locations. Passing the Lincoln Memorial still makes me look frantically for Jimmy Stewart. Download Location Scout to see what movies were filmed near you. If nothing nearby interests you, you can also search by movie title and specific locations.
