    I signed up for it to use after reading this article. So the question that begs to be asked is, is this legal?

    Hi Mohan, thanks for checking out the site and for your great question. To quickly answer; yes, this is 100% legal. We’re focused entirely on playing by the rules to try to help people find legitimate ways to find the movies they love. With the growth of new legal movie sites showing up seemingly every week, the service we provide is a little like Kayak for movies.

    Thanks!

    This is a MUST USE for Movie Lovers; it just missed the ability to add movies to the database to be the perfect movies related place; info; catalog your movies; etc… Its a “visually beautiful” iMDB =)
    Listal and Hellomovies top this type of sites =)

    A bit of a late reply, but I just wanted to add my thoughts.

    I created an account at helomovies some time ago, it might very well have been when this article was published. It was actually quite fun going through the large database and looking for movies that I could add to my list of movies I have seen. You’d discover old gems along the way that you completely forgot over the years. And I really like the idea of having a large checklist of movies I want to see, in case I ever get bored or find a great trailer online and don’t want to forget that. I do this with pretty much everything I have, just not movies. Therefore this came in pretty handy.
    Nevertheless I stopped using it, as I can’t really focus on using a service that is not easily accessible from every device I have. If I’m sitting in the movie theater for example I would like to add several movies to my list during the previews. For this to work out, there would have to be an iPhone app. I’m pretty amazed that I can’t find anything about this. No suggestions, nothing upcoming. I thought today every web service has their own app ;)
