We don't mean to be all movies all the time today but while trying to figure out where we could see Born into Brothels this week, we fell in love with Google's movie hack.

LAist thinks it's a pain in the behind to have to go through fandango or or one of the other film finding services to figure out which theatre we can go to to catch either the blockbuster on 60 local screens on the small indie on one. Google's movie hack (try it out: put in movie: million dollar baby [zipcode]) pulls up both local screens as well as easy access to reviews. We also love the elegant simplicity of the review page for each film.

The google blog has more tricks for the tool.
