Fandango is a good idea, in theory. Buy movie tickets online, what’s not to like?

  • Massive connivence charges, $2.70 for two tickets on-top of normal ticket prices, which often are higher than the theater window.
  • House of cards website, loads roughly 350k of JS, mostly in tracking services and manages to throw up console log full of JS errors even when privacy services are disabled.
  • Amateur mistakes like serving up http requests when on https, giving false security warnings and most of all,
  • Zero support for the payment services people actually use: Amazon, Google Pay, etc. Instead you get PayPal, welcome to 2002

if there’s ever been a service that needs “disrupting” its Fandango…
