Hey, nice job! I imagine creating this took a while.

If you take suggestions, here are some of mine!

  1. Add a bit more functionality. Search is working great, but you probably don’t want to stop there :slight_smile: Next step would probably be at least adding the watchlist functionality. Since it’s all front-end, you can store the movies in local storage.
  2. I’m assuming you already noticed it, but the modal (on opening a movie description) feels a bit weird. The screen gets tinted -> all the animations are happening -> it waits a bit less than half a second before the movie description finally shows up. Try and make it a bit more fluid.
  3. The scrolling bar is awful! Lol. As you can imagine, having an awesome layout like Netflix and default scrollbars doesn’t go well together. I haven’t watched it yet myself, but here is a guide for modifying scollbars
  4. Improve responsiveness a little bit. On the smaller screen you’ll probably want to see the “category + movie” taking most of the vw and vh, with movies still being horizontally scrollable of course.

Please pardon If I am wrong is it have same features like other movie apps or it works differently, I just ask this out of curiosity. By the way, nice clone… keep it up.
